Workshop White Paper - Education in the Wild: contextual and location-based mobile learning in actio
The workshop explored recent innovations into location-based, or geospatially-informed, contextual mobile learning, and issues arising from them. Location-based technologies offer opportunities for new forms of learning that engage more deeply with physical surroundings and support continuity of understanding across settings; they also pose technical difficulties of modelling and maintaining continuity of context, and ethical challenges including the right to privacy of location and escape from
You've Got to See It to Believe It!
Students develop an understanding of visible air pollutants with an incomplete combustion demonstration, a "smog in a jar" demonstration, building simple particulate matter collectors, and exploration of engineering roles related to air pollution. In an associated literacy activity, students learn basic marketing concepts and techniques, and the principles of comparative analysis, while creating an advertisement for a hybrid vehicle. Note: You may want to set up the activities for Air Pollution

MODELING CONCEPT DESIGN OF
The transformation of the innovation processes is a fact and new forms of cooperation and partnership among companies and research community emerge. The paper presents a model of concept design of Innovation platform, based on the 4 networked innovation models. Knowledge management is a common approach, providing opportunity for better knowledge exploitation in innovation life-cycle and considering new types of cooperation among innovation seekers and innovation providers. The Innovation platfor
Specification and Prototyping of Personalized Workplace Learning Solutions
The main goal of this document is to survey the existing approaches for the personalization and adaptation of eLearning systems which are proposed by partners from the PROLEARN consortium.,Research report of the ProLearn Network of Excellence (IST 507310), Deliverable 1.8
Mathematical Reasoning in a Technological Environment
Dynamic geometry software has been accused of contributing to an empirical approach to school geometry. However, used appropriately it can provide students with a visually rich environment for conjecturing and proving. Year 8 students who were novices with regard to geometric proof were able to exploit the features of Cabri Geometry II to assist them in formulating and proving in the context of Cabri simulations of mechanical linkages.
Mathematical Logic and Deduction in Computer Science Education
Mathematical logic is a discipline used in sciences and humanities with different point of view. Although in tertiary level computer science education it has a solid place, it does not hold also for secondary level education. We present a heterogeneous study both theoretical based and empirically based which points out the key role of logic in computer science, computer science education and knowledge representation. We focus on the key contrast of semantics and syntax, the resolution principle
A Bayesian Student Model without Hidden Nodes and Its Comparison with Item Response Theory
The Bayesian framework offers a number of techniques for inferring an individual's knowledge state from evidence of mastery of concepts or skills. A typical application where such a technique can be useful is Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT). A Bayesian modeling scheme, POKS, is proposed and compared to the traditional Item Response Theory (IRT), which has been the prevalent CAT approach for the last three decades. POKS is based on the theory of knowledge spaces and constructs item-to-item gra
Infantile Multimedia Environment - An Early Digital Inclusion
Children are recognized as individuals with rights, constituted by multiple human dimensions that can be excited by several activities and several Medias (books, videos, computers, etc.). And the Medias are understood as the tools to qualitatively contribute to the childrens development, giving them opportunity to improve their creativity and imagination, enriching their cultural repertoire. This paper aims to describe the results of a special project implemented in a public day-care centre in
Public Health Toxicology
This course examines basic concepts of environmental toxicology, including distribution, cellular penetration, metabolic conversion, and elimination of toxic agents, as well as the fundamental laws governing the interaction of foreign chemicals with biological systems.
Distributed Internet-based Performance Support Environment for Individualized Learning (DIPSEIL)
Distributed Internet-based Performance Support Environment for Individualized Learning (DIPSEIL) is a project to define, develop and test a distributed system for individualized learning and the underlying pedagogical procedures to implement, facilitate and promote performance-centered learning experiences in the context of international university education. Using DIPSEIL Model we have developed the first prototype of DIPSEIL with two main characteristics: Distribution and Individualization. Di
DRAC (Distributed Remote ACess system) An On-line Open Source Project-based Learning Tool
Project Based Learning is an essential component in modern engineering education. However, it is difficult to implement in a virtual simulation-based approach, and the need of expensive or specialized equipment can make difficult to use this PBL approach in remote learning. In this paper, a web-based portal is presented; it allows remote access to the resources of several PBL laboratories on Electronics, with a significant emphasis on real-time digital and analog processing and multidisciplinary
Calculus II for Business
Notre Dame OpenCourseware (OCW) offers free educational resources for the course "Calculus II for Business" in the Department of Mathematics. In this course you will learn how to use calculus to understand and model real life situations such as those in business, environmental changes, population growth to name a few. These OpenCourseWare materials include interactive Java applets for many Calculus topics.
"The Lady of Shalott" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson (poetry reading)
I did a reading a couple of years ago but I had a frog in my throat that morning - hopefully this is a less-froggy version. Arthurian legends were a favourite theme for Alfred Lawn Tennis - he made most of them up himself. Terse Verse: Saw knight pass In glass. Left room, Full of gloom. Stole boat, Died afloat. ...

Motor-Manipulatory Behaviours and Learning: an Observational Study
In this paper we investigated the role of motor-manipulatory behaviour in the learning modalities of thirty-five primary school children interacting with a Lego MindStorms kit. In particular, by means of an observational taxonomy of childrens behaviour, we analysed the video records of two observational sessions regarding the learning activities during the building of a small robot. Our results demonstrated that motormanipulatory behaviours are strictly linked to cognitive processes, and that
Web-based course design on the basis of eduWeaver and advancements
EduWeaver is a courseware tool that should enable instructors to create digital learning objects, which are conform to didactical standards, and to eventually combine them to a whole course. The course structure of course models, which were designed in eduWeaver, is hierarchically classified into four different layers. Via the export functionality in eduWeaver that relies on current standards, the course can be used in diverse learning management systems or within another environment as e.g. HTM
You Are What You Drink!
Contamination in drinking water sources or watersheds can negatively affect the organisms that come in contact with it. The affects can be severe causing illness or, in some cases, even death. It is important for people to understand how they can contribute to the contaminants in drinking water and what treatment can be done to counter these harmful effects. Students will learn about the various methods developed by environmental engineers for treating drinking water in the United States.
