Adaptive and context-aware scenarios for technology-enhanced learning system based on a didactical t
Among the main issues of future technology-enhanced learning systems, we can mention the following ones: the ability to reuse learning resources (learning objects, tools and services) from large repositories, to take into account the context and to allow dynamic adaptation to different learners based on substantial advances in pedagogical theories and knowledge models. In our framework, the goal of scenarios is to describe the learning and tutoring activities to acquire some knowledge domain (fo

Enabling Students to Construct Theories of Collaborative Inquiry and Reflective Learning: Computer S
To develop lifelong learning skills, we argue that students need to learn how to learn via inquiry and understand the sociocognitive and metacognitive processes that are involved. We illustrate how software could play a central role in enabling students to develop such expertise. Our hypothesis is that sociocognitive systems, such as those needed for collaborative inquiry and reflective learning, can best be understood as a community of interacting agents, who each have expertise in accomplishin

Un site web pour l'enseignement interdisciplinaire des mathématiques en biologie
Depuis septembre 2001, une section pilote du DEUG Sciences de la Vie est mise en place par l’Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1. Cette section bénéficie d’une pédagogie universitaire innovante intégrant les TICE. Notre équipe pédagogique assure le cours de Mathématiques tout en mettant l’accent sur l’interdisciplinarité Mathématiques et Biologie. Nous avons mis en place un apprentissage progressif par acquisition de connaissances (cours magistraux et travaux tutorés) puis de compét

Explicit Reflection in Prolog-Tutor
This paper describes a reflection-based approach for open learner modeling (OLM). Tutoring dialogues are used by learners to explicitly reveal their own knowledge state to themselves. Dewey’s theory of reflective thinking is used to create tutorial strategies which govern these dialogues. Drake’s specification of critical thinking, associated to a defined set of skills, is used to define tutoring tactics implementing these strategies. The main contribution of this approach to OLM is that it pr

A School Leader's Guide To Improving The Achievement, Assimilation, and Involvement of Montagnard Ch
Following an illustrious introduction to the Montagnards and their plight and flight to the United States, this study explores the education, assimilation, and future development of Montagnard students into American schools. A guide for school leaders is presented within this study to assist the Montagnard students in overcoming obstacles and achieving success in school. The successful implementation of this school leader's guide to improving the achievement, assimilation, and involvement of Mon

Wind With Miller
This fun, interactive website, created by the Danish Wind Industry Association, educates students about wind power. Visitors can learn how a turbine generates electricity. Through a series of animated links or by taking a tour up the tower, users can learn how all the parts of a turbine function. With the help of a series of simulations, Miller teaches students how the wind blows. The site also features many activities designed to educate students about wind speed, electricity, generators, and m

Al 88, Si 12 (wt%), eutectic alloy
This alloy is of the eutectic composition. From the melt a eutectic is formed between aluminium solid solution and virtually pure silicon. Slow solidification produces a very coarse microstructure. The eutectic comprises large plates of silicon in the aluminium matrix. This microstructure displays poor ductility due to the brittleness of large silicon plates. The microstructure is normally refined through either rapid solidification, which lets the silicon phase assume a fibrous form, or by a pr

Un modèle d’élève par l’analyse statistique implicative. Prise en compte du contexte algébri
Le modèle d’élève que nous construisons cherche à donner une représentation fine des compétences cognitives des élèves dans le domaine de l’algèbre. Il se fonde sur les micro-actions enregistrées dans le micromonde Aplusix. Ces actions étant de niveau très fin, nous devons reconstruire les connaissances à un niveau plus abstrait : non pas une action isolée mais un ensemble d’actions « similaires » apparaissant dans un même contexte. Nous utilisons pour cela l’analyse sta

Structuring and merging Distributed Content
A flexible approach for structuring and merging distributed learning object is presented. At the basis of this approach there is a formal representation of a learning object, called attribute structure. Attribute structures are labeled directed graphs representing structured information on the learning objects. When two or more learning objects are merged, the corresponding attribute structures are unified, and the unified structure is attached to the resulting learning object.
