Domain Modelling To Support Educational Web-based authoring
This paper describes an approach to web-based authoring of educational material. We define a model for the class of subjects of our interest (those including both theoretical and practical issues). From this model, specific content outlines can be derived as subclasses and then instanced into actual domains. The last step consists in generating interactive documents, which use the instanced domain. Students can explore these documents through a web browser. Thus, an interactive learning scenario

A Georgia Sharecropper's Story of Forced Labor ca. 1900
At the turn of the century the group of black women most subject to sexual exploitation and abuse were those who lived under the system of quasi-slavery known as "peonage."Under contract labor laws, which existed in almost every southern state, a laborer who signed a contract and then quit his or her job could be arrested. The horrors of this system of forced labor (as well as the equally horrific system of convict labor) are detailed in this stark, turn-of-the-century personal account of life u

Although most research has focused on out-of-school contexts, recent studies have begun to ask how games might be used or adapted for use in schools. This new handbook reports on some of the latest developments in the design of bespoke educational games, and asks whether and how schooling should be adapted to accommodate the use of games.,Research report

Socioemotional orientation as a mediating variable in teaching learning interaction: Implications fo
In this paper we argue that many of the design decisions of modern pedagogical solutions are made unconsciously without articulated view of the issues being addressed by the complex relationship of student’s social, emotional and motivational interpretations in learning. We present a theoretical framework for analysing them and discuss of the two empirical experiments, where individual students’ social and motivational interpretations were analyzed in a cognitive apprenticeship based technol

With capitalism in crisis, the shadow of Karl Marx is looming large. But what about the co-author of The Communist Manifesto? In advance of a major new biography, The Frock-Coated Communist, Tristram Hunt explores the life and work, the personal contradictions and ideological breakthroughs, of Friedrich Engels. Cotton-lord and communist, Engels was the man who turned Marxism into a political force - and whose vision was then brutally betrayed in the 20th century. Tristram Hunt is an historian,
