Learning Design Repositories Structure Ontology and Processes
We summarize here the results of a project called IDLD: Implementation and Deployment of the Learning Design specification. The main product of the IDLD project is a portal that provides a suite of tools and methodological aids to help build IMS-LD compliant learning designs. In this paper, we focus on a practical approach to build and extend a repository of learning designs. We present a more specific process where tools in the portal serve to extend the repository by building LD patterns extra
Emergence de Diagnostic par Formation de Coalitions - Application au diagnostic des conceptions d'un
Cet article présente une approche d'une tâche de diagnostic basée sur la formation de coalitions. Nous considérons le diagnostic comme étant le résultat émergent de l'activité interactive d'agents d'un niveau micro, résultat qui est interprété par des agents spécialisés d'un niveau supérieur (niveau macro). Au niveau micro, les agents interagissent et, suite à un processus de vote, forment des coalitions; au niveau macro, les agents spécialisés sont capables d'interpréter les c
A Snail Mail In-Basket Gets a Delivery Update
For years, principal pre-service programs have employed in-basket simulations to provide learning experiences that reflect the realities of a school administrator's work day. In-basket exercises afford graduate students opportunities to explore such leadership skills as organizing and prioritizing tasks, managing time, making decisions, taking initiative, practicing interpersonal skills, delegating responsibilities, and monitoring and following up on actions (Nowack, K. M., 1993). In order to re
A Multidimensional Approach To Educating All Children: Empowering Stakeholders To Make Appropriate D
This conceptual paper diagnoses the limitations and historic misuses of Deno’s Cascade Model for students with special needs and proposes a new schema for the individualized inclusion of all students. The extension of a once simplistic model is viewed through the triangulated perspectives of (1) students’ understanding and attitude; (2) parental care and advice; (3) teachers’ conscientious behaviors; and (4) administrative leadership. We propose a comprehensive placement option for student
Video-as-Data and Digital Video Manipulation Techniques for Transforming
Learning Sciences Research,
This chapter concerns the theoretical and empirical foundations and current progress of the Digital Interactive Video Exploration and Reflection (DIVER) Project at Stanford University. The DIVER Project aspires to accelerate cultural appropriation of video as a fluid expressive medium for generating, sharing, and critiquing different perspectives on the same richly recorded events and to work with others to establish a Digital Video Collaboratory (DVC) that enables cumulative knowledge building
Exploratory and Experimental Learning? For Teachers and Researchers tool
The term exploratory learning usually denotes some type of activity used by students, with or without a teacher's supervision, to facilitate the learning and mastery of a predefined and relatively circumscribed domain. That exploration may be more or less guided, according to the domain structure and the teacher's pedagogical goals and strategies. But there is also another way to use exploratory and even experimental learning, which may be used inside or outside an educational setting: rathe
Students will use a game and a discussion to demonstrate the importance of artifacts in context for learning about past people.
SEXTANT, un langage de modélisation des connaissances pour la navigation textuelle
Nous présentons tout d'abord notre conception de la navigation textuelle conçue comme un processus cognitif qui convoque des connaissances qui sont propres à la finalité de la navigation. Nous formulons l'hypothèse que ces connaissances peuvent être, en partie, modélisées sous une forme déclarative avec le langage SEXTANT que nous décrivons. Enfin, nous présentons deux applications qui utilisent la plate-forme NaviTexte dans laquelle le langage SEXTANT est implémenté.,Proceedings wi
Cyberinfrastructure for Education and Learning for the Future: a vision and research agenda
This report is the result of a series of workshops organized by the Computing Research Association and the International Society of the Learning Sciences with support from the National Science Foundation (Grant No. REC-0449247). The purpose of the workshop series was to explore where we are in the application of pervasive computing power to education, and where we need to be. In particular, the intent was to develop a map of where NSF can strategically place its resources in creating the learni
This site features World Wind 1.3, a NASA Learning Technologies application that lets the user zoom from any satellite altitude into any place on Earth. It features 3D Engine, Blue Marble, Landsat 7, SRTM, Animated Earth, MODIS, GLOBE, Country & State Borders, Place Names, Visual Tools and Landmark Set. The user can download World Wind, reference an online manual, post to an online forum, view screen shot examples from various satellites, and read press coverage about World Wind.
About Teaching - But I Teach a Large Class
This webpage authored by a Biology Professor from the University of Delaware in 1996 addresses the question of how one might adapt the problem-based learning approach for use in a large classroom setting. The page contains no links. The information is not dated and will be useful to all teaching faculty concerned with this question.
Chrom. and Electrophoresis experiments with PDFs
A site with PDF links to several slab gel electrophoresis, HPLC, and GC experiments intended for high school or college audiences. This site may provide a useful starting point for faculty seeking to implement new laboratory experiments based on these techniques. A login (email address) is required, but once logged in, follow the "Free Resources" link to see many instrumental and analytical experiments that have been submitted to the site.
Using Problem-Based Teaching and Problem-Based Learning to Improve the Teaching of Electrochemistry
This is a paper from The China Papers dated July 2003 that describes current chemical education methods in China and the introduction of problem-based learning at one institution in the physical chemistry course which is where electrochemistry is apparently taught.
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy
This website serves as a primer for understanding the fundamentals of NMR spectroscopy. Plenty of useful figures and animations that enhance the understanding of nuclear spin, shielding, and how these phenomena serve as the basis for NMR.

From Teaching to Learning: Part III. Lectures and Approaches to Active Learning
This is an article link from the Journal of Veterinary Medical Education applying active learning processes in veterinary classes focusing on asking questions and brainstorming in class. This page is for faculty, but is general and not specifically geared to analytical chemistry. The quality of content is excellent and uses examples of material used in a science lecture, Journal references are included.
