Public Lands: America's Largest Classroom
Are you looking for new ways to increase your students' interest and achievement in science, mathematics, and reading? Is student motivation suffering in your classroom? Why not consider taking your teaching outside? Studies have shown that using the environment as a learning tool not only increases student achievement but also helps students develop lifelong learning skills and a greater sense of respect and responsibility. If this approach sounds intriguing, consider the Hands on the Land prog

Prion Problem Space
Prions are relatively small proteins that display dramatically alternate conformations for similar primary structures. Abnormal conformations appear to cause fatal neurological diseases in a wide variety of mammals. Researchers are discovering the mechanisms behind these conformational changes, including differences that may lead to species barriers (or lack thereof) among exposed animals. How do these conformations differ? How do small sequence differences affect susceptibility to conformationa

Worldwide Amphibian Declines
AmphibiaWeb is an online system enabling anyone with a Web browser to search and retrieve information relating to amphibian biology and conservation. This site was inspired by the global declines of amphibians, the study of which has been hindered by the lack of multidisplinary studies and a lack of coordination in monitoring, in field studies, and in lab studies. We hope AmphibiaWeb will encourage a shared vision for the study of global amphibian declines and the conservation of remaining amphi

The effect of hunger on children and graphing
Following are a series of activities in which students apply various math skills to better understand the problems of world hunger and what steps are being taken to reduce the number of people without enough to eat. This activity examines the effect of hunger on children and the connection with child mortality, which is another MDG Hunger Target: Halve, between 1990 and 2015, the proportion of people who suffer from hunger.

How to use an Instructional Engineering Method and a Modelling Tool
This chapter discusses how to build IMS learning designs focusing on three aspects, instructional engineering, modeling tools and graphical design techniques. First, we propose that instructional de-signers use a systemic and systematic instructional engineering method to build Units of Learning conforming to the IMS-LD speci-fication. MISA, a mature instructional engineering method will serve as the basis to our design approach. Second, we present a graphical modeling tool, MOT+, and a represe

AMBRE-enseignant : un module partenaire de l'enseignant pour créer des problèmes
Si les enseignants utilisent peu d'EIAH avec leurs élèves, c'est peut-être parce qu'ils n'ont pas la possibilité d'agir sur les environnements qu'on leur propose. Or, pour s'approprier un EIAH, il faut que l'enseignant puisse l'adapter au contexte d'apprentissage et à sa démarche pédagogique. C'est pourquoi nous proposons dans le cadre du projet Ambre un module destiné à l'enseignant pour l'EIAH Ambre-add. Ce module, Ambre-enseignant, permet à l'utilisateur de configurer l'EIAH destin

A bootstrapping scenario for elicitating CSCL services within a GRID virtual community
Amongst the various eLearning techniques, Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) is of growing interest within the academic world. However, during the first phase of the EleGI project, a noticable fact has been the difficulty to match the user needs with the potentiality of the GRID services. Thus, through a fictive scenario, this article proposes to walk the path between the idea of creating a new virtual community and the realisation of this objective. This scenario takes the situat
