Machines that change climate: Porsche 911 Turbo vs. Toyota Prius
This activity asks students make 'back-of-the-envelope' calculations to estimate the amount of carbon dioxide released to the environment by different types of automobiles. It shows students that decisions they make can significantly alter the amount of greenhouse gases they release to the environment. It also helps students learn about exponential growth by calculating how the money saved by purchasing an inexpensive car can be invested to great advantage. The exercise is designed for non-scien

It aims to familiarize students with moderately complex Excel manipulations, reinforce good technical graphical techniques, and introduce basic mathematical modeling of natural systems. This exercise is designed for an upper-level undergraduate geomorphology course. Learning goals, context for use, teaching tips, materials, assessment tips and related resources are provi
Exploring Individual and Collaborative Dimensions of Knowledge Building in an Online Learning Commun
An exploratory study of students' engagement in online learning and knowledge building is presented in this paper. Learning in an online community, composed of students (pre-service teachers) and experts (experienced in-service schoolteachers and academics), is the study's primary focus. Students' interaction and knowledge discourse structures, arising from individual readings of academic papers and asynchronous collaboration with peers and experts, are investigated using social network and cont
Towards automatic glossarization: automatically constructing and administering vocabulary assistance
We address an important problem with a novel approach: helping children learn words during computer-assisted oral reading. We build on Project LISTEN's Reading Tutor, which is a computer program that adapts automatic speech recognition to listen to children read aloud, and helps them learn to read (http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~listen). In this paper, we focus on the problem of vocabulary acquisition. To learn a word from reading with the Reading Tutor, students must first encounter the word and then l
Supplementing Textbooks with Computer-Based Resources in the Primary EFL-Classroom
Compute-assisted language learning (CALL) should take place whenever it can support work which otherwise could have not been carried out as effectively. Teachers should choose computer-assisted activities which reflect and promote pupils existing abilities rather than neglect or marginalize them. The suggested activity here is the production of talking books audio-visual multimedia slideshows. It requires pupils to use the listening and speaking skills of a storyteller rather than the readi
ICT-enhanced Teacher training for Lifelong Competence
In this paper we are giving an example of how Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) can enhance the process of Teacher training, and how this can be used for Lifelong Competence Development of teachers. We show how one particular methodology for teaching and training soft skills can be further enhanced by the use of ICT. We show how the use of Learning Design centred software platform for lifelong competence development can enhance the in-service training of teachers.
Luck and lava
A team of researchers from Cambridge’s Department of Earth Sciences have recently returned from Iceland where, thanks to a bit of luck, they have gathered the most extensive dataset ever from a volcanic eruption, which will likely yield considerable new insights into how molten rock moves underground, and whether or not it erupts.
