After he sets the computer up to raise the flag, make the coffee in the teachers' lounge and ring the bell, he goes on his own trip to see the inner workings of the computer. As usual, something goes wrong, and Mikey has set the computer to do the tasks every minute instead of everyday. Can the clas

Speaker(s): Professor Miriam Bernard, Dr Kip Jones, Dr Gareth Morris | Academic communication is changing. New emphasis on impact and public engagement, combined with new technologies that allow high quality and easy to use production methods are increasing the possible range of outputs from academic research. This session will hear from three researchers that have used alternative forms for their research dissemination. We will ask what strengths these forms had in comparison to traditional boo

A talk by Bernard Lown, MD. Physician, author, and Nobel Prize-winning peace activist Bernard Lown discusses his new memoir, "Prescription for Survival: A Doctor's Journey to End Nuclear Madness". The inventor of the defibrillator, Dr. Lown was also a peace and anti-nuclear activist, participating in the founding of Physicians for Social Responsibility in 1960
A political party is a group of people who work to influence policy agendas and hold government power by seeking to elect candidates to public office. The Federalist Party and the Democratic-Republican Party were the first political parties in the United States, lasting from approximately 1796 to 1824
NATO Commander General Phillip Breedlove says Russia is no longer acting like a partner, and that NATO's decisions about force size, and placement will be made with that change in mind.

We often hear competing media and research claims about the educational value of new technologies, but often it is not clear how, or indeed if, these technologies are supporting learning. And, importantly, there is often little attention to the challenges of trying to introduce these technologies successfully into an educational context. This report aims to address these issues through a short summary of some of the work carried out by the Capital Project over the last two years the programme
This position paper provides some elements about the convergence of institutional and personal learning environments based on Web 2.0 as well as pervasive learning.
The paper describes a model of implementation of the European e-Competence Framework in Sofia University by using the methodology and tools developed in the frames of the EC Sixth Framework European Integrated Project Ten- Competence. The work is a follow up activity of an internal university project for implementation a curricula in computing based on the ACM/IEEE recommendations.
This paper deals with issues related to the non-formal learning in vocational education, and the role of ICT for providing appropriate accreditation model in such education. The presented conclusions are based on the Leonardo da Vinci project LeoSPAN. The paper emphasises on the development of a model and a prototype of an adaptive eLearning system that ensures the pre-defined learner outcomes. One of the advantages of the eLearning system is the flexibility for people who upgrade and improve th
This study focuses on the use of innovative Tablet PC technology in learning and teaching mathematics. Specifically the effects of incorporating Tablet PC technology in pre-service teachers' mathematics education were analyzed. The significant impact of technology use in mathematics education was assessed by evaluating and comparing students' final project and course grades. Grade performance of two groups of students was compared. One group was the treatment group where students extensively use
The quality of education for doctoral students is closely linked to the quality of the research they undertake. Benefiting from technological advances, new distributed and collaborative research practices can be witnessed. The concept of e-science has emerged and evolved to the concept of e-research. These concepts bring about a new research philosophy and the notion of collaboratory. Our research project aims to develop a renewed doctoral training approach and to facilitate researchers' adoptio
This paper presents a multi-dimensional learning style model and a system specification to automatically generate adaptive courses using the aspect oriented technique.
