Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,The interviewer probes the student's ideas about how organisms like lichens and bacteria can break down rock. The video shows the student has some naive ideas about decomposers but does have a basic idea that there are organisms that break down rock.

Une expérience de construction de cartes conceptuelles dans un contexte de téléapprentissage univ
Nous décrivons une expérimentation de construction de cartes conceptuelles par des étudiants adultes dans un cours universitaire en sciences cognitives diffusé en ligne dans un contexte de formation à distance. Chaque étudiant est invité à élaborer une carte conceptuelle après lecture de textes. Les cartes conceptuelles sont réalisées à l'aide du logiciel MOT, permettant une représentation graphique des connaissances selon une technique de modélisation par objets typés. Les étud

En quoi les TIC changent-elles les pratiques d'ingénierie pédagogique du professeur d'université?
Depuis quelques années, le terme « in-génierie pédagogique » (instructional enginee-ring) est de plus en plus utilisé en rempla-cement de celui de « design pédagogique » (instructional design). Pourquoi? Rappelons d'abord que le terme « design pédagogique » est apparu au cours des années 1960, lors-que certains chercheurs (surtout améri-cains) ont commencé à mettre au point des méthodes systématiques et systémiques de planification et de développement de l'en-seignement.

Ontological Modeling Approach to Blending Theories for Instructional and Learning Design
This paper proposes a modeling framework for learning and instructional design from the viewpoint of ontological engineering. One of the characteristics of this framework is a theory/paradigm-independent ontology for modeling learning/instruction. This paper discusses how our modeling framework with the theory/paradigm-independent ontology contributes to modeling learning and instruction from a comprehensive viewpoint of various educational theories.

Desert Features
Sand covers only about 20 percent of the Earth's deserts. Nearly 50 percent of desert surfaces are gravel plains where removal of fine-grained material by the wind has exposed loose gravel and occasional cobbles. This web page, produced by the U.S. Geological Survey, features text and photographs that describe desert landforms, soils, plants, and the role of water in the formation of desert landscapes.

Analogue Microstructural Modeling at the University at Albany, SUNY
This site contains 15 time-lapse QuickTime movies that show the experimental deformation behavior of octachloropropane. This compound shows similar microstructures to those found in quartzite, and thus is a nice analog for the deformation of rocks. The movies illustrate cataclastic deformation, grain boundary opening, formation of subgrains, subgrain boundary formation and grain boundary migration, ribbon formation, grain growth at zero strain rate, and grain boundary migration during high tempe
