Ars magna lucis et umbrae
100 modern day ‘magic lanterns’ grouped in a series of narrative sequences and photographic tableaux are distributed unevenly throughout the cavernous space of the former church. Two types of images are projected. The first type are from the collection of images that Mark Ingham has been using for the past few years in his research. These images will occupy the smaller rectangular space at the end of the church. The second type of image will use photographs taken over recent months of th
Swan songs series
Swansongs is a series of 10 contemporary ‘landscape’ photographs depicting the aftermath of the end of industrialisation in the East End of London. As with some previous work, the photographs relate directly to historical paintings, in this case artists from the British Landscape tradition including John Constable and the Pre-Raphaelites. The thematic concerns and formal properties (including bright colour saturation) are recast into contemporary East London but aim to go beyond a literal re
Simulateur de comportements d'apprenants dans le cadre de jeux d'entreprise
Les jeux d'entreprises constituent une formation pertinente pour la formation initiale et continue d'ingénieurs. Ils ont l'avantage d'offrir une grande liberté d'action et d'intervention aux apprenants. Cependant, le nombre de chemins possibles étant important dans de tels jeux, il n'est pas évident de proposer du premier coup la bonne structure de jeu et de définir les paramètres optimums pour atteindre les objectifs pédagogiques. Actuellement, cette mise au point se fait grâce aux reto
Effet d'un dispositif de communication médiatisée synchrone dans une tâche de résolution de prob
Cette étude examine l'incidence d'un dispositif de communication médiatisée synchrone (messagerie instantanée) sur les interactions d'enfants de CM1 dans une tâche de co-résolution d'un problème. Les enfants réalisent une tâche de sélection de phrases importantes d'un récit d'abord individuellement puis avec un camarade de classe. Certains enfants collaborent dans une situation de face à face (7 dyades) et d'autres utilisent un dispositif de communication médiatisée synchrone (8 dy

GRID Technologies => 'Education' = 'Distance Education'
This paper discusses the new possibilities that Grid technologies create in education, presents current learning paradigms and makes a prediction about the way in which Grid technologies may affect the future of education. The case of the Hellenic Open University (HOU) is presented and the current educational technologies and tools used are illustrated. The paper also presents a scenario for the utilization of Grid technologies at HOU and discusses the challenges that such infrastructure create
Adaptive eLearning and the Learning GRID
One important aim of LeGE-WG is the integration of new eLearning methodologies into Learning Grid technology. A central issue in these new eLearning methodologies is the concept of individualised and personalised learning to be realised by adaptive tutoring systems. The adaptivity of such systems goes far beyond adapting to the users' preferences with respect to the user interface; in co-operation between computer science, psychology, and pedagogy, systems adapting, e.g., to the individual lear

"Please, Let Me Put Him in a Macaroni Box" The Spanish Influenza of 1918 in Philadelphia
In 1918 and 1919 the Spanish influenza killed more humans than any other disease in a similar period in the history of the world. In the United States a quarter of the population (25 million people or more) contracted the flu; 550,000 died. In the early 1980s, when historian Charles Hardy did interviews for the Philadelphia radio program "The Influenza Pandemic of 1918," he was struck by the painful memories as many older Philadelphians recalled the inability of the city to care for the dead and
Transnational Pollution: Why Are You Dumping on Me?
This lesson familiarizes students with the different types of transnational pollution, and gives them an opportunity to role-play in a hypothetical case of transnational pollution involving the Danube River. The major goal of this activity is to show students that an incident in one nation may well have serious environmental consequences for other nations. Additionally, it will give students an opportunity to role-play complex roles that are meaningful and consequential to global concerns. The l
Using Investigative Cases in Geoscience
This website provides an overview of using investigative cases as teaching tools in geoscience. The site is part of the Starting Point: Teaching Entry Level Geoscience project. Information includes a description of how cases serve as springboards to student-designed investigations and how cases engage students and faculty in collaborative problem posing, problem solving, and persuasion.
Femme a la Cafetiere, La
Acclaimed theater director brings movement to Cezanne's painting, reproduced in the studio for the camera. [Suzushi Hanayagi,] a dancer from the Kabuki theater, performs the role of the woman, whose slight, almost imperceptible, facial and body movements -- together with mysteriously animated objects and strange apparitions -- bring the painting alive. A spoon stirs a cup of coffee without the benefit of human assistance. An off-camera figure manipulates objects. The woman eats green candies. A
