Hypermedia as a means for learning and for thinking about learning
This paper is about the design and realization of an experimentation with a hypermedial system, IPER-3, facing the three ‘classical’ problems in the history of mathematics (trisection of the angle, quadrature of the circle, duplication of the cube) and some issues which have developed around them. The aim of the work is to study the opportunities provided by hypermedial systems in dealing with topics of interest for the training of teachers and/or for class work, exploiting the possibility o
History of the Internet
'History of the internet' is an animated documentary explaining the inventions from time-sharing to filesharing, from Arpanet to Internet. The clip shows a brief overview of this history and shall animate people to go on discovering the history of the internet.
The history is told with help of the PICOL icons - PICOL standing for PIctorial COmmunication Language and is a project to find a standard and reduced sign system for electronic communication.

The NASA Health Stabilization Program
This NASA Sci Files segment describes the NASA Health Stabilization Program, a quarantine system for soon-to-fly astronauts. Produced specifically for students and is suitable for elementary and older students.
(This is an Emmy award-winning series of instructional programs that introduces students in grades 3-5 to NASA and integrates mathematics, science, and technology through the use of Problem-Based Learning (PBL), scientific inquiry, and the scientific method. The series seeks to m
Scientists are now able to insert the genes of Bacillus thuringiensis, or Bt, into farmers' crops in order to prevent a hostile takeover by pests. But what happens when the pests become resistant? Learn about the "refuge" system and how researchers are manipulating selective pressures in order to try and slow the development of Bt-resistant pests. Run time 05:33.

Authors@Google: Rainn Wilson
The Authors@Google program welcomed Rainn Wilson to Google's New York office to discuss his book, 'Soul Pancake". "Have you ever wondered what happens after you die? If you only had one hour left to live, how would you spend it? How do your thoughts affect reality? How does knowing the intention behind a work of art affect your experience of it? Rainn Wilson, best known for his deft portrayal as Dwight on NBC's "The Office," teamed up with his friends and dares to discuss life's biggest ques
Modeling a Changing World
Modeling a Changing World written by mathematics professor Tim Chartier and his student Nick Dovidio presents curricular material in an OSP Launcher package to motivate the need for numerically solving ordinary differential equations. The package discusses such applications as a mass-spring system and its connection to computer simulation for movies. An interactive model that simulates a two-body gravitational model of the moon and earth allows for exploring the topic of numerical error. Other m

Financial Reform in China
In the 6th of an annual series of lectures, Howard Davies reviews the development of the Chinese financial system over the last year. He has been a member of the International Advisory Board of the Chinese banking regulator since 2003 and has observed the dramatic changes in Chinese banks at first hand. The Chinese system has been remarkably insulated from the crisis. What does that mean for the future? Will China turn its back on free-market financial reform? Howard Davies is director of LSE. P
