What makes the subject matter matter? Contrasting probeware with Graphs & Tracks
Previous research has established probeware as an effective tool in science instruction. Less is known, however, about the reasons for its success. In this study, we investigate this issue further by contrasting the use of probeware with the use of a simulation called Graphs & Tracks. By carrying out an in-depth analysis of pre-service teachers’ interaction, we want to demonstrate that the two environments – despite many structural similarities – afforded different contexts for learning.

Using Geographic Information Systems to Map Crime Victim Services
The US Department of Justice released this document in February 2003 about the use of geographic information systems (GIS) in law enforcement. "GIS is an application that links database software to graphics software to create visual images of various types of data in map format." The report outlines the applications of such systems in police cars and at victim assistance facilities, providing examples of situations where it has been used successfully and cases that could have benefited from GIS.
