Drosophila
Discover and apply principles of genetic inheritance by studying the inheritance patterns of fruit flies in a virtual environment. You will work on a virtual lab bench from which you can order fruit fly mutants from a web merchant, mate the flies in an incubator, anesthetize flies for observation, examine flies under a microscope, and analyze the data from offspring to determine patterns of inheritance. Your task is to propose hypotheses, design experiments, and analyze and interpret the data fr

Hands on the Land Teaching Materials
Hands on the Land (HOL) is a network of field classrooms stretching across America from Alaska to Florida. HOL is sponsored by Partners in Resource Education, a collaboration of five Federal agencies, a non-profit foundation, schools, and other private sector partners. Public lands comprise approximately one-third of the acreage of the U.S., and you'll soon see they are rich in historical, archaeological and environmental learning opportunities. Through the HOL network of field classrooms, Feder

Worldwide Amphibian Declines
AmphibiaWeb is an online system enabling anyone with a Web browser to search and retrieve information relating to amphibian biology and conservation. This site was inspired by the global declines of amphibians, the study of which has been hindered by the lack of multidisplinary studies and a lack of coordination in monitoring, in field studies, and in lab studies. We hope AmphibiaWeb will encourage a shared vision for the study of global amphibian declines and the conservation of remaining amphi

Views from Windows
This OLogy activity challenges kids to put their imaginations to work in order to gain a new perspective on perspectives. The activity begins by telling kids that how they see the world depends on two things: where you're looking from, and how fast you're moving compared to the speed of light. They are then asked to print one or more of four window frames and fill in each with an illustration that captures the scene's height and velocity. The window frames are: your bedroom window, a speeding ca

Cet article cherche à répondre à une des difficultés rencontrées par un tuteur en situation de suivi d'une activité collective à distance, à savoir la perception de l'activité individuelle des apprenants dans l'activité de groupe. À partir d'une étude de la littérature sur les scénarios d'activités collectives à distance et sur la dynamique de groupe, nous proposons des moyens de faciliter la perception de l'activité individuelle par le tuteur.

QBLS : web sémantique de formation pour un apprentissage par questionnement
Nous présentons dans cet article un EIAH conçu et développé selon des méthodes et techniques du web sémantique. Nous avons adopté une approche d'acquisition et de gestion des connaissances pour expliciter la stratégie pédagogique d'un enseignant, acquérir des ressources pédagogiques à partir d'un document de cours initial, et organiser ces ressources. L'environnement d'apprentissage constitue un web sémantique dit « de formation ». La visualisation des ressources et la navigation

De l'usager construit à l'usager participant
Ce texte part du constat de la faible diffusion des artefacts produits par la recherche en EIAH. Cette situation résulte, nous semble-t-il, d'une forte discontinuité entre les moments de conception et d'usage pouvant entraîner une discordance entre usages imaginés (prédictifs) et usages « réels ». La conception participative, parce qu'elle repense la place de l'usager, nous paraît être à la fois une réponse possible à cette problématique et un champ de recherche pour l'ingénierie

How GRID could improve E-Learning in the environmental science domain
This paper will outline the requirements for an interactive e-learning system defined as part of the German research project GIMOLUS [1]. After a short overview over the Open Grid Service Architecture (OGSA) it will be shown that the capabilities of existing e-learning solutions are too limited in order to fulfil these requirements. The last part will show how a GIMOLUS system could be built using a GRID service architecture and what the benefits are in doing so.

"Their Own Hotheadedness": Senator Benjamin R."Pitchfork Ben" Tillman Justifies Violence Against Sou
In this March 23, 1900, speech before the U.S. Senate, Senator Benjamin R. "Pitchfork Ben" Tillman of South Carolina defended the actions of his white constituents who had murdered several black citizens of his home state. Tillman blamed the violence on the "hot-headedness" of Southern blacks and on the misguided efforts of Republicans during the Reconstruction era after the Civil War to "put white necks under black heels."
