How Big Is A Mole: Do We Really Comprehend Avogadro's Number? (Japanese Voice Over)
The unit “mole” is used in chemistry as a counting unit for measuring the amount of something. One mole of something has 6.02×1023 units of that thing. The magnitude of the number 6.02×1023 is challenging to imagine. The goal of this lesson is for students to understand just how many particles Avogadro's Number truly represents, or, how big is a mole. This lesson is meant for students currently enrolled in a first or second year chemistry course. This lesson is designed to be completed wi

21A.506 The Business of Politics: A View of Latin America (MIT)
This class looks at the birth and international expansion of an American industry of political marketing, with a special emphasis on Latin America. We will focus our attention on the cultural processes, sociopolitical contexts and moral utopias that shape the practice of political marketing in the U.S. and in different Latin American countries. By looking at the debates and expert practices at the core of the business of politics, we will explore how the "universal" concept of democrac

Le corps, le pur et l’impur, avec Jacques Rollet (Vidéo) Les catégories du pur et de l’impur relèvent, comme celle du sacré, de la religion la plus ancienne. Elles ont, dans le domaine religieux, conservé une actualité, entre autres pour l’islam et le judaïsme. C’est en fait la question de la pureté du corps qui est ainsi posée. Le christianisme ...

Mid-level spreadsheeting and complex modeling of real-world scarp evolution
This lab activity is a familiarization exercise in spreadsheet modeling, and is also a mathematical model for slope evolution. 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
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
NOP - Sustainable organic teaching lab
Sustainable development needs chemical research Research and innovation are preconditions for the transformation of economic and social processes in favor of a sustainable development. Chemistry, the science and practice of the transformation of matter, is of central importance. Everyone dealing with chemistry can contribute substantially to sustainable development and holds special responsibility. Already in education the links between reactions and substances with the consumption of energy and
Star Library: Which Paper Towel is More Absorbent?
This group activity focuses on conducting an experiment to determine which of two brands of paper towels are more absorbent by measuring the amount of water absorbed. A two-sample t-test can be used to analyze the data, or simple graphics and descriptive statistics can be used as an exploratory analysis. Students are asked to think about design issues, and to write a short report stating their results and conclusions, along with an evaluation of the experimental design.
These lectures demonstrate the high precision analysis using synchrotron radiation, one of the most sophisticated techniques developed during the past 20 years.
PROLEARN framework for process-oriented learning and knowledge work
Given the importance of an organisations human capital to business success, aligning training and competency development with business needs is a key challenge. Many companies did initiate in the past knowledge management activities or founded corporate universities as the organization intended to help companies to face this challenge. In this deliverable, we talk about knowledge work and learning management as a concept to "increase business performance" through a better short- and long-term
Embedding Design Patterns in a Methodology for a Design Science of e-Learning
The discourse of research and practice in e-learning has been dominated by two extremes. On one hand, ethereal abstractions, which provide sound principles but do not lend themselves to implementation. On the other hand, detailed anecdotes which provide fascinating insights but pose a challenge to generalization. The void in between these two extremes calls for representations which capture transferable and modular elements of design knowledge. Design patterns originated as a form for democrati

Co-Lab, design considerations for a collaborative inquiry learning environment
Co-Lab is a learning environment for collaborative inquiry learning in which learners can experiment, make models, consult background information and discuss their findings. The complex learning processes in such an environment need to be supported by appropriate features in the software. In this paper we report on how, based on existing literature and specific user and usability studies, we developed a set of design guidelines that were implemented in the software.
