The first year impact of a professional learning community on low achieving 7th and 8th grade studen
The purpose of this study was to measure the impact on low achieving learners within the first year implementation of a professional learning community in a large suburban middle school located in the Midwest. Interventions through collaborative efforts were devised for low achieving learners and implemented. Grade trends for students earning below average and failing grades in all subject areas in the 7th and 8th grade were examined from each quarter of the previous four years and compared to g

Basic computer literacy training to increase comfort levels with computers and improve behaviors of
This study researched the effect of a basic computer course on the comfort level with computers and Internet on 17 Spanish-speaking, non-computer literate adults. It also identified any increase of the participants’ integration of computers and Internet into employment related activities. Five male and twelve female Hispanic adults completed a four-day basic computer literacy training course. Data collected through pre and post content exams; pre, post, and follow-up comfort and use surveys, a

3.5 Scattering from finite square wells and barriers

The procedure used to analyse scattering from a finite square step can also be applied to scattering from finite square wells or barriers, or indeed to any combination of finite square steps, wells and barriers. The general procedure is as follows:

  • Divide the x-axis into the minimum possible number of regions of constant potential energy.

  • Write down the general solution of the relevant time-independent Schrödinger equation in

2.2 Persistent currents lead to constant magnetic flux

An important consequence of the persistent currents that flow in materials with zero resistance is that the magnetic flux that passes through a continuous loop of such a material remains constant. To see how this comes about, consider a ring of metal, enclosing a fixed area A, as shown in Figure 6a. An initial magnetic field B0 is applied perpendicular to the plane of the ring when the temperature is above the critical temperature of the material from which the rin

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?

Learning Individuals and Learning Communities: Informal Learning in 2025
This Paper presents the Learnovation vision within and around the area of informal learning, and more specifically it concerns three “eLearning territories”: individual development through e-Learning, nonprofessional learning communities, and communities generating learning as side effect. What these three territories have in common is that learning is not organised or structured, nor necessarily intentional from the learner’s perspective. A key assumption to understand the Learnovation Visio
