Critique of Postmodern Ethics of Alterity versus Embodied (Muslim) Others: Incompatibility, Diversio
In this dissertation, I investigated postmodern alterity, constructivism, and agency through addressing their translatability and implications. In Chapter One, I critiqued postmodern main concepts of alterity and constructivism, showing that these terms can be vague and counterproductive unless they are attenuated with political socio-cultural realities. In Chapter Two, through analyzing modern texts, I explored claims that Western epistemology/ontology reduces the other to the Same. Although su

Directions to Acknowledge Learners’ Self-organization in CSCL Macro-scripts
In this article we present a conceptual analysis of the notion of learners’ self-organization in CSCL macro-scripts. We highlight that taking into account self-organization as an emergent feature of activity requires considering issues such as conceptual and technological tools to support learners’ self-organization, maintenance of coherence between the script pedagogical objective and the emergent organization and between the technological setting and the emergent activity.

The Role of the Elementary Principal in Promoting Parent Involvement: Evidence from Rural, Blue Ribb
The reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary School Education Act has amplified the implications of including parents in the education process.

The Relationship of Physical Discipline and Psychological Maltreatment in Childhood to the Use of Dy
The current study examined the utility of Self-Trauma Theory for explaining the long-term impact of the experience of childhood physical discipline and/or psychological maltreatment.

When Opportunity Knocks
In our first episode, we debunk the myth that leadership begins and ends with The Leader. Bruce Avolio, Executive Director of Foster’s Center for Leadership and Strategic Thinking will explore how the situation (whether in the form of an opportunity or challenge) may have more to do with who becomes a successful leader than the leadership qualities of a particular person. We discuss this new approach with a “headhunter;” an executive from the wild frontiers of computer gaming; Howard Beha

Peer-to-Peer Copying
Most Internet content today is "served" from a central system that takes requests from a user's "client." Typically, the user asks for access to information or other data; the requested content is then "pushed" from the central system to the user. In this model, the various visitors to a given web site do not interact. By contrast, peer-to-peer technology (commonly known as "P2P") creates conversations among individual personal computers (PCs). In this respect, P2P systems resemble an affili

Beyond Y2k: A Look at Acadia's Present and Future
The sky may not be falling, but it sure is getting closer. Where will you when the last three zeros of our millennial odometer click into place? Computer scientists tell us that Y2K will bring the world?s computer infrastructure to its knees. Maybe, maybe not. But it is interesting that Y2K is an issue at all. Speculating on the future is simultaneously a magnifying glass for examining our technologies and a looking glass for what we become through them. "The future" is nothing new. Orwell's vis
