A Grid Services Implementation for a Virtual Research Environment
In the past, virtual learning and research environments have typically been implemented as monolithic systems. Current research focuses on creating such environments from selected Grid and Web services. In this paper we describe the Virtual Orthopaedic European University, which was created to support Higher Surgical Trainees to provide evidence for their learning contracts by carrying out experiments and publishing the results. We use this environment as a case study for the re-implementation

Il ruolo delle nuove tecnologie per superare le difficoltà di apprendimento in aritmetica
Nell’articolo si fa riferimento a varie sperimentazioni che abbiamo realizzato per studiare il ruolo che le tecnologie dell’infromazione e della comunicazione possono svolgere nel superamento delle difficoltà che emergono nell’apprendimento in campo aritmetico e nella soluzione di problemi aritmetici. L’approccio che abbiamo seguito ha come riferimento la teoria della “distributed cognition”, secondo cui la conoscenza è sempre contestualizzata, distribuita negli strumenti, nelle at

Determining the Sources of Delay in a Distributed Learning Environment
In the context of LeGE-WG we expect to see the Open Grid Services Architecture (OGSA) being used as a guiding framework for the future deployment of Distributed Learning Environment (DLEs). OGSA is totally service-oriented and it has been known for sometime that Quality of Service (QoS) is key to the success of DLEs. Delay in particular, as experienced by the end user, is one of the key QoS parameters for a DLE. This paper describes techniques for identifying sources of such delay, and a model f

An investigation of using the computer for reading and writing in the English classroom in secondary
This paper presents an investigation of using the computer in English teaching at the secondary school in the UK, particularly in respect of reading and writing skills. Many studies suggest that the computer brings significant possibilities for promoting the teaching of reading and writing in the English classroom. The computer can enhance the development of reading and writing. This study adopted interviews as research technique and some student teachers in a university and some English teacher

Are well-designed Web sites efficient for learning mathematics at the undergraduate level?
We conducted an experiment in order to examine the effectiveness of an educational Web site, which provides resources to undergraduate students in mathematics. The participants' task was to solve 18 questions about differential equations. Students in the paper condition outperformed those in Web site conditions. There was no difference between the original and an improved Web site version. Moreover, students in all conditions preferred working with the paper resource. Practical and theoretical i

When Values Conflict: How citizens stakeholders and experts contributed to formulating policy for ma
For over 40 years the UK Government has avoided the question of what to do with its radioactive waste. Sufficient wastes now exist in the UK to fill the Royal Albert Hall five times over. To solve this problem, the Committee on Radioactive Waste Management (CoRWM) created the largest public consultation exercise ever conducted in the UK, resulting in a set of recommendations forwarded to the government this past July. This lecture will explain a key element in the process adopted by CoRWM. The l

Time Tracker
Time Tracker teaches young children how to tell time using an analog clock. There are ten educational levels ranging from simple hour hand manipulation to complex double-digit subtraction. Upper level equations show a deactivated clock representing the "current" time in conjunction with the main active play clock representing the "configurable" time. Time Tracker uses dynamic leveling algorithm to adjust to the child's ability.
