Air pollution by ozone in Europe during summer 2006
This report, prepared by the European Environment Agency (EEA), provides an overview for the state of ground-level ozone pollution in Europe, for April-September 2006. The report is based on the information provided by all the EU member states to the European Commission (EC), and is primarily concerned with measured concentrations which exceeded the threshold values set by the ozone directive (2002/3/EC). Data provided from a total of 2069 monitoring sites includes : the locations where the high

Teachers' attitudes to and beliefs about web-based collaborative learning environments in the contex
This paper reports the conceptions of teachers from four European countries of the Innovative Technologies for Collaborative Learning project tools for collaborative learning. Fifty six teachers were interviewed about different aspects of the CLE (Webbased Collaborative Learning Environment) implementations and about their own evaluations of the CLE implementations in their classrooms. Their answers were analysed using categories based on a model from cultural-historical activity theory (Engestr
