Private Universe Project in Mathematics: Workshop 3. Inventing Notations
We learn how to foster and appreciate students notations for their richness and creativity. We also look at some of the possibilities that early work in creating notation systems might open up for students as they move on toward algebra.,Kenilworth Study: Pizzas In the fourth grade, the students encounter counting problems where the solutions cannot be built using standard manipulatives. As he invents his own notation systems, one student, Matt, builds on previous work to arrive at a solution
A Framework to Analyze Argumentative Knowledge Construction in Computer-Supported Collaborative Lear
Computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) is often based on written argumentative discourse of learners, who discuss their perspectives on a problem with the goal to acquire knowledge. Lately, CSCL research focuses on the facilitation of specific processes of argumentative knowledge construction, e.g., with computer-supported collaboration scripts. In order to refine process-oriented instructional support, such as scripts, we need to measure the influence of scripts on specific processes

Learning How to Learn: using the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set to support teachers as researchers
This conference paper describes how the extension of the Dublin Core Metadata set by domain-specific vocabulary capable of describing not only learning resources but also the classroom contexts in which they may be used, the strategies underpinning them and associated research evidence has provided the basis of sophisticated knoweldge management tools to support teacher professional development.,79,83,84

Envisioning Cyberspace: The Design of On-Line Communities
The development of the World Wide Web into an active, visual social environment poses unique opportunities for the design professions. Multi-user Domains, social meeting places in cyberspace, are mostly text-based virtual realities which use spatial references to set the stage for social interaction. Over the past year design students at the New Jersey Institute of Technology School of Architecture have investigated several text-based domains. In the course of their work, they envisioned and gra
Private Universe Project in Mathematics: Workshop 4: Thinking Like a Mathematician
What does a mathematician do? What does it mean to think like a mathematician? This program parallels what a mathematician does in real life with the creative thinking of students.,How a Mathematician Approaches Problems - Fern Hunt, a mathematician at the National Institute for Standards and Technology, is seen as she collaborates with colleagues to solve difficult technical problems. Using the metaphor of the childrens game Towers of Hanoi, she explains her approach to solving problems. 15 m

The Influences of Art on Yellowstone
This site features paintings, photos, and drawings, many of which contributed to the creation of the nation's first national park. The waterfalls, geysers, rock formations, and vistas in these works helped spread an appreciation of the wonders of Yellowstone. When President Grant signed into law the bill establishing Yellowstone as our first national park in 1872, he set in motion the tradition of preserving other tracts of great beauty for future generations.
What Is Community? An Evidence-Based Definition for Participatory Public Health
Increased emphasis on community collaboration indicates the need for consensus regarding the definition of community within public health.This study examined whether members of diverse US communities described community in similar ways. To identify strategies to support community collaboration in HIV vaccine trials, qualitative interviews were conducted with 25 African Americans in Durham, NC; 26 gay men in San Francisco, Calif; 25 injection drug users in Philadelphia, Pa; and 42 HIV vaccine res
Steps still being taken to undo damage of America's Nuremberg
The year 1947 was a watershed for medical ethics and medical care. Fifty years ago, the Nuremberg Code, created in response to the atrocities of Nazi medicine, called for the informed consent of participants in human research. That same year, penicillin was recognized as the standard of care for syphilis. Researchers from the U.S. Public Health Service failed to connect these two milestones. They continued to conduct a long-running study in Tuskegee, Alabama, on the course of syphilis in untrea
