"These paintings explore a shifting inner world of unnameable familiarity. Through accumulation of paint a direct physical interaction is exposed, between body and canvas, from the slightest stain to violent application. The visceral, physical qualities of body matter are appropriated through paint as substance. A repeated expulsion of paint fuses layers together into a monstrous hybrid. These forms lure the viewer in through delicate detail. What first appears delicately beautiful is exposed

Antarctic Village - Metisse Flag
By way of calling the Orta Antarctic expedition to an end, the artists staged the first in a series of symbolic football games, ‘Heads or Tails, Tails or Heads’. Meteorologists, paleontologists and geologists from the Marambio Antarctic Base joined the Orta team to play a symbolic ‘All Nation’ match. The Metisse Flag and the Antarctic football shirts, created by the artists make it difficult to identify the adversary. The front and back of the players' shirts are stitched together with d

Energy Resources: Coal
OpenLearn Resource - Time: 17 hours and Level: Intermediate. Part of S278 - Earth's Physical Resources/Energy: Fosssil fuels, Nuclear and Renewables. During the Industrial Revolution half of the world's coal came from Britain. We still rely heavily on it today to meet our energy needs, but now we input more than we produce. Burning it introduces large amounts of gases into the atmosphere that harm the environment in a variety of ways. In this unit it will become apparent that the most appeali

Espoir et Histoire

Les mouvements de révolte qui secouent actuellement notre société sont symptomatiques d'une crise du jeu démocratique. La représentation politique ne fonctionne pas comme elle le devrait puisqu'il est désormais nécessaire de s'exprimer ailleurs, hors du cadre ordinaire de représentation.

Pourquoi assistons-nous à une crise aussi éloquente et visible? Est-il possible d'envisager le devenir d'une humanité en difficulté en terme d'espoir?

Turtle's Navigation and Manipulation of Geometrical Figures Constructed by Variable Processes in a 3
Issues related to 3d turtle's navigation and geometrical figures' manipulation in the simulated 3d space of a newly developed computational environment, MaLT, are reported and discussed here. The joint use of meaningful formalism and the dynamic manipulation of graphically represented 3d figures seem to offer new resources and to pose new challenges as far as geometrical activities and construction of meanings are concerned, which are strongly related to the representational infrastructure of Ma

Why Web 2.0 is Good for Learning and for Research: Principles and Prototypes
The term "Web 2.0" is used to describe applications that distinguish themselves from previous generations of software by a number of principles. Existing work shows that Web 2.0 applications can be successfully exploited for technology-enhance learning. However, in-depth analyses of the relationship between Web 2.0 technology on the one hand and teaching and learning on the other hand are still rare. In this article, we will analyze the technological principles of the Web 2.0 and describe thei

The distributed developmental network - d2n: a social configuration to support design pattern genera
DiSessa et al. (2004) conducted a comparative study of how research teams design, develop and evaluate TEL software, in the context of component-based educational programming. They identified the issue of the social configuration of the production team as “a critical family of issues that are easily marginalized” (p.117). These social configurations are loosely equivalent to what Activity Theorists refer to as the rules and division of labour (Engeström, 1987) in the activity system of TEL pr

Solar Power
In this activity, students learn how engineers use solar energy to heat buildings by investigating the thermal storage properties of some common materials: sand, salt, water and shredded paper. Students then evaluate the usefulness of each material as a thermal storage material to be used as the thermal mass in a passive solar building.
