Analyse didactique de protocoles obtenus dans un EIAH en algèbre
Le micromonde APLUSIX permet de garder des traces de l'activité des élèves qui l'utilisent. En effet, il enregistre, dans leur totalité, aussi bien les événements du clavier, que les actions de la souris. Il est ensuite possible de suivre à l'aide d'un "magnétoscope" les évolutions des élèves. Nous avons conduit des expérimentations destinées à établir un état des lieux des connaissances des élèves en algèbre en début d'année scolaire, dans des classes de troisième, seconde
Knowledge, the keystone of TEL design
This talk outlines the arguments supporting the claim that knowledge is the keystone of the design of Technology enhanced learning (TEL) environments. First, I consider the meaning we could attach to knowledge and knowing, and I introduce the notion of conception. Second, I explore how far the problématique of validation is central in our research. And to conclude, I introduce a characterisation of conceptions, which could help in addressing the problem of TEL design at a theoretical level.
Pregnant with Diabetes
This app provides information to women with type 1 and type 2 diabetes as well as women that develop diabetes during her pregnancy. Diabetes is defined, possible complications for mother and baby, medications, diet and exercise are discussed. Recommendations for reducing risk are given.
Learning Imaging Techniques!
During this activity, students will be introduced to the concepts of the challenge. They will generate ideas for solving the grand challenge first independently, then in small groups. Finally, as a class, students will compile their ideas with a visual as a learning supplement.
Segregated Schooling in Alabama
This scrapbook documents conditions in Birmingham's segregated schools in 1963, as well as white resistance to integration.
This learning object describes the moral theories that are used to justify or clarify health care professionals' clinical decisions.
Levels of Measurement
To understand the different levels of measurement including nominal, ration, ordinal and scale measurements and the arithmetic operations that can be performed on them
Examining ionic and covalent between atoms.
Recognising Nominative Categorative data
Learning Object that introduces Social Science students to recognizing and interpreting data contained in a table. The RLO uses data based on the causes of death of Rock and R&B musicians.
Calculate Molar Absorbance Coefficient
This object helps you to be able to convert units from mM-1 to M-1
Integration of Environmental Analytical Chemistry with Environmental Law: The Development of a Probl
This JCE paper is well written, generous referenced and will serve as an excellent reference for anyone interested in adapting and implementing this problem-based approach to an upper-level environmental analysis laboratory that emphasis QC/QA and performance-based analytical methods.
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
The popular Learning Adventures series at DiscoverySchool.com (last mentioned in the March 8, 2002 NSDL Physical Science Report) has a feature on the International Space Station. Its assembly is one of the most ambitious engineering projects ever, and this site explains a few of the details of the multi-year process. In the Mission Basics section, there are specific facts, discussions about various aspects of the station, and virtual tours of some of the stations modules. Astronaut profiles and
Tissues of Life
This Web site from the Science Museum of Minnesota offers a fun and interactive way to learn about the structure and function of the body's tissues. While some activities provided are designed to complement an on-site visit to the Tissues of Life exhibit, the Web site also includes many stand-alone Web-based features. For example, with Explore Body Tissues, students can take a look at cross-sections of actual human bodies, browse through a gallery of scar photos (and perhaps add a photo of their
Learning to Learn: An Introduction to Capillary Electrophoresis
This article describes a problem based learning approach to analytical chemistry labs using capillary electrophoresis as the instrumental method. The on-line link requires a password for The Chemical Educator to get the full article. The article also describes a lab that is an example of problem based learning. Students, playing the role of lab technicians, learn how to use the instrument in order to perform an analysis.
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
A Dictionary of Units of Measurement was written by Russ Rowlett, the Director of the Center for Mathematics and Science Education at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This Web site provides information on everything from the Metric System to Viscosity Grades and many other measurement units in between. A simple but very useful site, visitors can find answers to their basic unit measurement questions or just have fun learning about some of the common and somewhat obscure ways we m
The Electronic Statistics Textbook
This electronic textbook on statistics provides both extensive and in depth coverage of statistics. Although an excellent reference for analytical chemistry students and faculty, the lack of chemistry-related practice problems or exercises may not make it an appropriate substitute for a traditional text.
This page presents material from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Instructional Excellence Retreat, May 1996, on applying cooperative learning in a classroom setting. It gives a nice, quick, summary of cooperative learning, defining it and establishing rules and techniques. The site is for faculty, but is general and not specifically geared to analytical science.
Breaking away from the math book : creative projects for K-8
This site, developed by two university instructors, offers 37 lesson plans for hands-on learning activities for grades K-8 to reinforce or introduce concepts. Lessons cover a multitude of topics. Several involve constructing containers; these require students to look at the connection between dimensions and volume. For example, the lesson on Capacity has students make several boxes of different dimensions and calculate the capacity of each box. The boxes are then used to measure dry rice. Other
National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science
Compendium of web resources for faculty interested in incorporating problem-based learning and case studies in their courses. Case teaching notes, problem based learning. Article designed for faculty interested in incorportating case discussion in introductory and more advanced courses.
