Conception of a simulator for a TEL system in orthopaedic surgery.
Within a research project whose aim is to promote the learning of percutaneous operation in orthopedic surgery, we investigate some representation models of empirical, deductive, and perceptivo-gestural knowledge. From these models, we design an TEL system (Tecnological Enhaced Learning) This project belongs to a multidisciplinary field including computer, orthopedic surgery, medical imaging, didactic and cognitive sciences. The article presents the design principles of TEL with a particular int

Public Health - Environmental Cleanup Partnerships in Washington State A Public Health Seminar delivered on Monday, October 4, 2010. In the public imagination, the Pacific Northwest region of the U.S. is an enclave of pristine environmental situations. This reputation has also attracted major environmental risks. The state of Washington hosts nearly 60 superfund priority sites under the federal Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act. These sites include, for example, Hanford, a 586-square-mile site created in 1943 as part of

Internet Scout Project
The University of California Berkeley's "University Herbarium (UC) and Jepson Herbarium (JEPS) represent the largest collection of herbarium material west of the Missouri Botanical Garden and the largest at a public university in the United States." Visitors can discover the scientific uses of the many specimens held in the UC, which was established in 1895. The website describes the JEPS's research on systematics and floristics of vascular plants. Researchers and students can find concise overv
Internet Scout Project
The US Department of Agriculture's Plants Database (last mentioned in the January 16, 1998 Scout Report) is continually adding improvements. Most recently, the Web sitehas added an advanced query to allow users to search for specific plant data based on many different search characteristics. This new feature is also user friendly; by clicking on any of the fields, a definition of the field is displayed. Also new are targeted links that allow you to link directly from a queried plant profile to o
Internet Scout Project
Although some might fear that limited land resources and the usual development pressures are working to reduce Britain's natural history to footnote status, this website from the Natural History Museum in London effectively documents the UK's impressive biological and geological diversity. The site consists of interactive database features as well as videos (in both Windows Media and Quicktime formats). Exploring Biodiversity, an interactive introduction for students to UK biodiversity, allows u
Internet Scout Project
This extensive website features the University of Maryland's Geochemistry Laboratories' efforts to "produce the highest quality elemental and isotopic data, to teach students and visitors the techniques involved with gathering such data," and to develop new methods and instrumentation in the field of elemental and isotope measurements." Users can discover the Thermal Ionization, Plasma, and Gas Source laboratories; as well as the Chemical Processing Lab and the Mineral Separation and Rock Prepar

A'Planting We Will Go
This lesson is based on the book, "The Tiny Seed", by Eric Carle. This story will be used to introduce the children to the concept that seeds change and grow into plants when conditions in the environment including temperature, light, water and soil are appropriate. Children will learn that plants produce seeds that can become new plants. Through extended activities, the children will experience first-hand the germination of seeds. They will become familiar with the parts of a plant and learn ho

This video segment describes the role of the sickle cell gene in natural selection. Footage courtesy of the PBS series Secret of Life: "Accidents of Creation."
Altared States: Marriage Ends an Organizer's Career
In 1889, Knights of Labor General Investigator Leonora Barry surprised the union by recommending that the Woman's Department, which she headed, be disbanded. "There can be no separation or distinction of wage workers on account of sex," she argued, "and a separate department for the interests of women is a direct contradiction of this." The Knights rejected her recommendations, and Barry continued her organizing work. What finally halted Barry's organizing efforts--and the work of the union's Wo
LC/GC magazine is a very good source for relatively short articles about fundamental chromatographic issues as well as applications. The content is appropriate for both introdcutory analytical courses (e.g. quant) and for instrumental analysis courses.
Daisyworld Interactive Activity
Students use a JAVA interface design to explore the Daisy World model. The model is intended to illustrate a mechanism by which biota might optimize their abiotic environment by means of negative feedback. The model does not attempt to describe all of the possible mechanisms and feedbacks which might influence the ways in which the plants and climate develop. Instead, it is an heuristic model, that seeks to describe the ways in which this mechanism might work. The original model was developed by
Caring for Your Health
Dr. Emillio Carillo comments on healthcare in the Latino community. Program examines a number of health issues, with a focus on the needs of the Latino and Black community. Host Eduardo Diaz interviews Dr. Emilio Carrillo, cofounder of the Boricua Health Organization of Boston, to discuss problems related to healthcare delivery to Boston's Latino population. 'Encore' segments include 1974 interviews conducted by former Say Brother writer/researcher Dighton Spooner with Dr. Houston Kelly (on hype
