ePortfolios in Education - Learning Tools or Means of Assessment?
ePortfolios are collections of electronic evidence which capture the idea of lifelong learning ePortfolios at school can support the documentation of competences better than normal tests and assessments. The acquired competences may further be transfered from school to the world of work. On the other hand ePortfolios are powerful tools for learning and reflecting.
The Influence of Game Features on Collaborative Gaming: A Process-oriented approach
Game technology and design are creating powerful collaborative gaming experiences that can be exploited pedagogically. Building on a research trends from various fields, a process-oriented model is adopted to evaluate the instructional potential of games, considering both their surface and deep structure. Two experimental approaches are adopted. Through reflective evaluation the Neurocognitive skills employed, Perceived Competence Facilitation and Perceived usefulness of games are determ

Bolognas process and the opening of university teaching to new educational scenarios provide an opportunity for the implementation of innovative and active methodologies. This paper describes a practice implemented by the share and reuse of learning contents using streaming technology. Streaming technology was used since it promotes the support of pedagogical activity as a dynamic resource and oriented to a model of shared learning. The motivation beyond this idea was the share of teachers e
This guide suggests how to read aloud to children, develop their listening and speaking skills, teach about letters and numbers, and build their background knowledge and thinking skills. The booklet is designed to help people who work with young children create rich learning environments.
GRCC Political Science professors discuss the relevancy of the U.S. Constitution on its anniversary. Participants include Keith St. Clair, Yan Bai, Gordan Vurusic and Heather Forrest.
Notre Dame OpenCourseware (OCW) offers free educational resources for the course "Creole Language and Culture" in the Institute for Latino Studies. This course introduces students to the language of Haitian Kreyòl, or Creole, and to the culture of its speakers. The program is designed to meet the needs of those who plan to conduct research in Haiti or in the Haitian diaspora, or who intend to work in a volunteer or professional capacity either in Haiti or with Haitians abroad.
This site tells how parents can make sure children succeed with homework and develop strong study skills. Among the topics: setting a regular time and place for homework, removing distractions, looking over completed assignments, discussing assignments to be sure they are clear, talking with teachers, and more. A brief checklist is included.

Pencils and Pixels is an open teaching and learning resource aimed at helping design students to develop their drawing and rendering skills. Through a series of demonstration films available on-line or for download to your iPhone/iPod Touch, you will be able to study at your own pace and in your own chosen environment. Each film [...]
The paper is dealing with the method putting audio, video, still photography together to get the best effect for an normal audience to transport actual problems mainly in visual form without putting to much effort into text.
The provision of shared visual representations is considered to be an important facilitator for creative processes in group working and learning scenarios. Although reusability is an inherent feature of computerised representations in general, a comparative analysis of existing tools shows clear deficits in this respect. We are convinced that reusability and thus sustainability of the results of co-constructive group work can be much enhanced by integrating visual environments with functions for
In this lesson, students will learn about types of land use by humans and evaluate the ways land is used in their local community. They will also consider the environmental effects of the different types of land use. Students will assume the role of community planning engineers and will create a future plan for their community. (Note: Teachers will need to check out the following book from the local or school library: Durell, Ann, Craighead George, Jean, and Paterson, Katherine. The Big Book For
A principled approach to the design of problem-oriented, web-based learning at the university level is presented. The principles include providing authentic contexts with multimedia, supporting collaborative knowledge construction, making thinking visible with dynamic visualisation, quick access to content resources via ICT, and flexible support by tele-tutoring. These principles are used in the MUNICS learning environment, which is designed to help students of computer science to apply their co
This is the first semester in a two-semester introductory course focused on current theories of structure and mechanism in organic chemistry, their historical development, and their basis in experimental observation. The course is open to freshmen with excellent preparation in chemistry and physics, and it aims to develop both taste for original science and intellectual skills necessary for creative research.
Looking at models and maps, students explore different pathways and consequences of pollutant transport via the weather and water cycles. In an associated literacy activity, students develop skills of observation, recording and reporting as they follow the weather forecast and produce their own weather report for the class.
In June 2000, the Fourteenth Symposium on Thermophysical Properties was held to review the progress of thermophysics over the last 100 years and to look forward to the next century of research and development in thermophysics. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) provides a special publication online covering the event, including overviews of topical issues by professionals in the field and several brief, invited essays on issues raised in the forum by panelists, audience pa
In this chapter, we discuss two approaches to supporting collaborative learning activities in higher education through technological means: structuring and regulating collaboration. Structuring approaches aim to create favorable conditions for learning by designing and scripting the situation before the interaction begins. They attempt to define the structure of the learning experience by varying the characteristics of the participants (e.g. the size and composition of the group, or definition a
Especially in vocational education, attention should be paid not only to the use of new technological solutions but also to collaborative learning and cooperative working methods in order to develop students skills for their future jobs. This study involves a design experiment including the design process of a new game environment, description of the script developed for this game, as well as the empirical study with multiple data collection methods, data analysis, results and conclusions for
The European Space Agency mission, International Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory (INTEGRAL), was developed to gather the Universe's energetic radiation in order to better understand the most violent processes in the Universe. After reading the in-depth descriptions about INTEGRAL, users can learn the latest INTEGRAL news and view the monthly and archived image. Visitors will find plenty of help, information on workshops and conferences, and downloadable publications. The website provides detai
