Digital Libraries and Archives, Winter 2009
This course focuses on the current state of "digital libraries" from a multidisciplinary perspective. Its point of departure is the possibilities and prospects for convergence of professions and cultures around the notion of digital media and content.

Nineteenth Century America in Art and Literature
In the United States, the nineteenth century was a time of tremendous growth and change. The new nation experienced a shift from a farming economy to an industrial one, major westward expansion, displacement of native peoples, rapid advances in technology and transportation, and a civil war. In this lesson, works of art from the nineteenth century are paired with written documents, including literary selections, a letter, and a speech. As budding historians, students can use these primary source

EARTH 105 investigates the interrelationships between geology, hydrology, land use and human development in several areas of Africa. We focus primarily on regions north of the equator, although there is a brife segment on South African mining. Specific topics include the Nile River (sources of the Nile, agricultural practices, effects of damming the Nile, and hydropolitics), the Sahara and Sahel (salt mines, climate change, drought, and wather resources), and natural resources and their role in
This is a special topics seminar focusing on the current state of “digital libraries” broadly defined. The seminar is multi-disciplinary in focus and in method, covering the history of the idea, its manifestation as projects and programs in academic, non-profit, and research settings, and the suite of policy issues that influence their development and growth. The concept of the digital library will serve as an intellectual construct within which to explore the related concepts of scholarly c
Geometry can be an exercise arena for strengthening those logic muscles that middle school students need to flex. When we work with a geometric figure—a circle, for instance—and apply the ancient tools of compass and straightedge, geometry can become a rich ground for developing design. And a circle has size, so a unit on this topic necessarily brings in the mathematics of its measurement. Circles, then, is a geometric topic that can provide mental challenge, opportunity for artistic develop

This extensive, online Bibliography of Lake Malawi Biology is part of a larger scientific website titled The Cichlid Fishes of Lake Malawi, Africa (reported on in the March 4, 1998 Scout Report for Science & Engineering) which is maintained by Michael K. Oliver. The regularly updated Bibliography has an emphasis on "the taxonomy of the lake's fishes and their ecology, evolution, and genetics, but also includes literature on all other organisms." The Bibliography "provides links to hundreds of li
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,The segment shows how the interviewer can use a firsthand experience, in this case wetting a rock with water, to try to engage a student in explaining ideas about how water wears down rock.
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,This segment shows the interviewer trying to probe for whether the student attributes the same macroscopic properties of substances to atoms. He asks if the atoms of aluminum would be bendable and shiny like the foil. The student responds that it's too small to bend and that atoms are colorless but it is not clear that the student knows that the properties of substances and atoms are different without further pro
La virtualisation des ressources pédagogiques est devenue un aspect crucial de l'EIAH, et ce pour plusieurs raisons : (a) atteindre cet objectif pour faire face à l'évolution rapide des technologies et une nécessité d'apprentissage et de savoir-faire primordiale pour la survie de tous, (b) rendre nos outils attractifs et pérennes, et (c) se répartir la construction d'un patrimoine de ressources pédagogiques. De nombreux systèmes d'apprentissage existent aujourd'hui mais leurs ressources
We learn how to foster and appreciate students notations for their richness and creativity. We also look at some of the possibilities that early work in creating notation systems might open up for students as they move on toward algebra.,15 min.
