Levels of Web-Based Discussion: Theory of Perspective-Taking as a Tool for Analyzing Interaction.
The aim of this paper is to present a model how the level of web-based discussion can be analyzed. The model has been developed in an empirical study where we examined the quality of asynchronous interaction in web-based conferencing. Because all successful communication presumes perspective-taking skills and reciprocal understanding among the participants, we studied whether the students are able to reach in reciprocal interaction and thus create educationally relevant high-level web-based disc
Tópicos sobre programação de computadores como método educativo no jardim-de-infância
Temos vindo a explorar a possibilidade de utilizar a programação de computadores no jardim-de-infância, no âmbito da metodologia construcionista desenvolvida por Seymour Papert. Para o efeito, recorremos à linguagem ToonTalk, que permite a realização de programação de computadores sob a forma de animação, dispensando a leitura e a escrita. Este artigo dá conta das estratégias que utilizámos e das constatações que efectuámos por observação e experimentação.
Analysis of the usage of the Virtuoso system
We present our experiences for recording and analyzing usage of the Learning System Virtuoso at the University of Sofia. The description follows the structure that emerged from the joint work on the Kaleidoscope DPULS Project meetings held on February and April 2005. We also show one possible generalisation and one example pattern for tracking the learning problems described.

Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
Using this online activity, students explore the meaning of probability using the pigeonhole principle. The initial question asks students to determine the probability that someone who is not paying attention to what she is doing can put checks into the correct envelopes. The activity is one of 80 mathematical challenges featured on the Figure This! web site, where real-world uses of mathematics are emphasized. The solution hint suggests experimenting with the possible outcomes with checks a, b,

Perceived Versus Actual Risk for Hypertension and Diabetes in the African American Community
Hypertension and diabetes mellitus are leading health concerns in the United States. Despite a disproportionate burden of both conditions among African Americans, it is estimated that 44% of diabetes cases and one quarter of hypertension cases within this population are undiagnosed. Lack of awareness of the risk of these conditions may hinder preventive efforts and the adoption of positive lifestyle changes. Based on the findings from a pilot study to develop and standardize uniform screening fo
