Discovery of Ideas and Ideas about Discovery : The influence of prior knowledge on scientific discov
Context of this research project. The empirical studies that were carried out for this thesis were performed in the context of the project 'Inductive Learning’,which was funded by the Dutch Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). The inductive learning project aimed at ‘clarifying the major constraints of inductive knowledge development’ (as stated in the research proposal). The constraints of inductive knowledge that were specifically studied in the project were prior knowledge, disc

A Model for Interoperability in Computer Supported Collaborative Learning
Computer Supported Collaborative Learning activities involve combination of complex software tools that often need to interoperate in a wider context of learning. This paper proposes a data model that accommodates requirements of typical collaborative learning situations and facilitates interoperability of tools and interchange of products of collaboration and evaluation data. The model has been tested against various typical tools used for both synchronous and asynchronous collaboration of grou
Educational Tool for Nanophysics Using Multisensory Rendering
The presentation and the evaluation of an educational tool used to teach physical phenomena that take place at a nanometer scale are the central objectives of the work presented in this paper. Through concepts and tools, the real phenomena are connected to the virtual world, which furnish sensorial representations (haptic, visual, auditory) for the student who is experimenting. A computer representation of the nanoscene at the atomic level offers a multisensory tangible artifact of nanoworld ina
Progression in Multiple Representations: Supporting students' learning with multiple representations
Relating multiple representations and translating between them is important to acquire deeper knowledge about a domain. To relate representations, learners have to mentally search for similarities and differences. To translate between representations, learners need to interpret the effects that changes in one representation have on corresponding representations. The question is how presenting representations may improve or hinder the processes of relation and translation. In this study we examin
Teaching proof in a dynamic geometry environment: what mediation?
This paper aims to discuss two issues. First we intend to analyse if and how dynamic geometry software prove to be a communication space for students and how they support students towards proving. Second, we reflect about the use of video-tapes as source of information both for Mathematics Education research and for the teaching practice. In particular we approach the question: how do video-tapes help in the construction of a shared experience in the classroom?
What does multimodality mean for English?: creative tensions in teaching new texts and new literacie
The argument for a pedagogy which embraces visual and multimodal representation is well established in academic circles (Kress & Van Leeuwen, 1996; New London Group, 1996; Cope & Kalantzis, 2000) and a plethora of literacies congregate around the ever-expanding subject English as the prime site for innovation and development. This paper will focus on one exploratory case study from the Economic and Social Research Council InterActive Education Project1 to examine how working with multimodal text
Integrating conceptions of learning for advancing educational practices
Introduction: I have argued elsewhere (Desforges, 2000b) that the core function of educational research is to make a contribution to the educational enterprise. Education is society's commitment to enhancing the human condition through capitalising on human potential for learning. There are many factors involved in such a mission. Better education entails better resourcing, creativity, will, energy and resourcefulness. Researchers must make their contribution by adding to the base of knowledge a

Phosphorescence lifetime imaging in turbid media
In this dissertation we explore the use of highly scattered photons in an analog of conventional emission tomography. Through this technique we quantitatively reconstruct images of the spatial distribution of oxygen in turbid media. We begin with the mathematical description of diffusive light propagation in highly scattering systems and solve the forward problem. Numerical methods by which the forward problem is inverted are introduced next, enabling quantitative spatial image reconstruction. T
