Distance Education Standards and Legal Issues - Computing Education Perspective
This paper aims to examine the legal issues related to the recognition of professional ICT qualifications amongst countries in EU, as well as international and European standards for education and training, certification and validation of distance training courses, etc. At the end we are proposing a course structure, certificate format, as well as the educational standards to be followed in the design process.
Harnessing Technology: Transforming Learning and Children's Services
This document is the Department for Education and Skill's first cross-sector e-learning strategy. The strategy focuses on what the technology can do for informing and advising citizens, for supporting children and learners of all ages in their encounters with the system, and for transforming the experience of learning. To make this happen, it identifieds six priorities, to provide: • An integrated online information service for all citizens • Integrated online personal support for children
Web Based Simulations for Virtual Scientific Experiment: Methodology and Tools
In this paper we want to present the tools and a methodology to realize web based simulations according to the didactic model defined for the Virtual Scientific Experiment. The strategy that we suggest intends to satisfy all the requirements for the actors involved in the learning process according to the adopted didactic model. These requirements provide that: the tools for building the simulations have to serve a teacher instead of a programmer of web based simulations; the simulation outputs
Computational Representation of Collaborative Learning Flow Patterns Using IMS Learning Desing
The identification and integration of reusable and customizable CSCL (Computer Supported Collaborative Learning) may benefit from the capture of best practices in collaborative learning structuring. The authors have proposed CLFPs (Collaborative Learning Flow Patterns) as a way of collecting these best practices. To facilitate the process of CLFPs by software systems, the paper proposes to specify these patterns using IMS Learning Design (IMS-LD). Thus, teachers without technical knowledge can p
Liberal Fascism: the uses and abuses of the F-word
For nearly a century the political left has controlled the commanding heights of intellectual discourse by asserting, contrary to the evidence, that the left holds a monopoly on political virtue. The further you move from the left on the political spectrum, it is asserted, the closer you get to evil. "Fascism" has long served as the central prop in this drama. Fascism and evil are interchangeable terms, we are told. The reality is that while fascism may be evil, it has always been a leftist phen
The Future Development of International Criminal Justice: An Interdisciplinary Approach
Judge Sang-Hyun Song was appointed President of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in March, 2009. He initially joined the ICC in 2003, when he became a judge for a term of nine years. President Song has extensive practical and academic experience in the area of court management, criminal procedure, and the law of evidence. For thirty years, he taught as a professor of law at Seoul National University Law School, beginning in 1972. He has also held visiting professorships at a number of law
Carey Drayton: What Matters to Me and Why
Carey Drayton, chief of the USC Department of Public Safety, addresses the topic "What Matters to Me and Why" on Jan. 20, 2010. "What Matters to Me and Why" is bridges the separation between intellectual life and personal and spiritual issues by having featured USC faculty and administrators spend about 20 minutes addressing the topic "What Matters to Me and Why," followed by an informal dialogue rounding out the hour. The program is sponsored by the USC Office of Religious Life and the USC Le
Transforming classroom teaching & learning through technology: Analysis of a case study
The paper discusses the results of a research project based on the field testing of a course aimed at developing arithmetic problem solving skills in primary school pupils. The course was designed to incorporate e-learning techniques, including the use of ARI@ITALES authoring tools. These tools allowed the integration in the course of constructivist activities based on interaction with a set of different microworlds. The aims of the project were twofold: to analyse how the adopted approach and t

21st Century Challenges in Perspective: From academic research to government policy
The first set of our Policy Briefings at a seminar in the House of Commons. Dr Ian Goldin and Professor Sarah Harper gave presentations to a cross-party selection of MPs and Lords, with representatives from government, NGOs and think tanks also present. On 3 July, we launched the first set of our Policy Briefings at a seminar in the House of Commons, entitled "21st Century Challenges in Perspective: From academic research to government policy". Dr Ian Goldin (School Director) and Professor Sarah
4 A thinking disposition and the process of development
Diagrams, mind-maps, tables, graphs, time lines, flow charts, sequence diagrams, decision trees: all can be used to organise thought. This unit will introduce you to a variety of thinking skills. Asking and answering questions is at the heart of high-quality thinking. Questions naturally arise from the desire to know and learn about things and may be the starting point for a journey of understanding.

2 Different conceptions of learning
How do we learn? Understanding ‘how’ is the key to learning more effectively. This unit looks at the three main categories of theories: the acquisitive, constructivist and experiential models of learning. There is no right way to learn but developing an active approach will ensure that you are open to new ideas.
The Effective Provision of Pre-School Education (EPPE) Project: Technical Paper 8b - Measuring the I
This Technical Paper describes the results of analyses of young children's social behavioural development during their time in pre-school. Equivalent analyses of the cognitive progress of children in the study have been conducted and the results are reported separately in EPPE Technical Paper 8a. Four aspects of social behavioural development have been studied, namely 'Independence & Concentration', 'Co-operation & Conformity', 'Peer Sociability' and 'Anti-social / Worried'. . A range of statist

This time, let’s talk about… silence. It seems like that one of the most difficult things to do these days is to find a quiet corner where to unwind, relax, and reflect. After all, we all live in the so-called information overload era. – A famous department store in London decided to give its customers [...]
