South African Child Gauge 2009/2010
The South African Child Gauge is produced annually by the Children Institute University of Cape Town to monitor government and civil society progress towards realising the rights of children This issue focuses on child health. The South African Child Gauge is divided into three parts: PART ONE Children and law reform. Part one discusses recent legislative developments affecting child health In this issue there is commentary on the Children's Act the Prevention of and Treatment for Substance Abus
This lesson describes the function and components of the human nervous system. It helps students understand the purpose of our brain, spinal cord, nerves and the five senses. How the nervous system is affected during spaceflight is also discussed in this lesson.
Computer-Supported Scripting of Interaction in Collaborative Learning Environments: Framework on mul
Collaboration scripts aim to facilitate effective interaction patterns for collaborative learning that do not occur spontaneously. So far, diverse non-generic scripts have been conceptualized and investigated in CSCL environments. The specification of collaboration scripts aims to provide a common terminolgy for describing scripts and to abstract the core design principles of scripts to better understand effects and mechanisms of collaboration scripts and to apply and re-apply collaboration scri
Sciences, communication et politique de l'éducation : le rôle de l'erreur à la recherche et à la
La communication scientifique qui peut soutenir un développement culturel, insulaire et durable, doit donner priorité à un type de communication récursive, par lequel la population concernée pourra revoir son trajet historique et en même temps prendre des décisions adéquates et bien situées aux conditions spatio-temporelles. Dans le cas de la formation mathématique, ce type de communication privilégie l'étude et l'exploitation didactique de l'erreur. Par l'exposé qui suit, on essaye
Organisational patterns for e-learning centres
In this paper we explore the notion of using organisational patterns in educational design for the development of e-learning centres. We are using patterns to discuss some of the key aspects concerning the implementation of an e-learning centre within an institution, with an emphasis on the purposes and pedagogical principles that will help to successfully support such an initiative. The research approach which informed our pattern development work includes use of a qualitative survey of a set o
Integration of virtual players into a pedagogical simulator
The development of learner activity is a key element in the improvement of ITS (Intelligent Tutoring Systems). In business simulation, the learner is stimulated by competition with other learners. In practice, it is not always possible to find enough participants, hence the idea of virtual player participation. The SIMPLUS system proposes a generic approach to this end and creates virtual players within a business simulation without modifying the simulation itself.
In this activity, students use wood, wax paper and oil to investigate the importance of lubrication between materials and to understand the concept of friction. Using wax paper and oil placed between pieces of wood, the function of lubricants between materials is illustrated. Students extend their understanding of friction to bones and joints in the skeletal system and become aware of what engineers can do to help reduce friction in the human body as well as in machines.
You be the Radiologist!
In addition to the associated lesson, this activity functions as a summative assessment for the Using Stress and Strain to Detect Cancer unit. In this activity, students will create a 1-D strain plot in Microsoft Excel depicting the location of a breast tumor amidst healthy tissue. The results of this activity will function as proof of the accuracy and reliability of the students’ breast cancer detection design.
Presenting Painless Breast Cancer Detection!
This lesson culminates the unit with the Go Public phase of the legacy cycle. In the associated activity, students must depict a tumor amidst healthy body tissue using a graph in Microsoft Excel. In addition, students will design a brochure advertising a new form of painless yet reliable breast cancer detection to both patients and doctors alike. Together, the in-class activity and the take-home assignment will function as an assessment of what the students have learned throughout the unit.
A chapter describing protein structure and function, including 53 figures and 7 large tables. It is intended as ~9hrs study time at level 2/3. It also provides background reading for the experimental investigation on SDS-PAGE and Western-blotting (http://open.jorum.ac.uk/xmlui/handle/123456789/1579).
Derivatives in Physical Science The function of mathematics in physical science. From a theoretical concept to a practical tool, the derivative helps to determine the instantaneous speed and acceleration of a falling body. Differentiation is developed further to calculate how any quantity changes in relation to another. The power rule, the product rule, the chain rule -- with a few simple rules, differentiating any

Information Technology and the Networked Economy
The beginning of the 21st century has seen a rapid change from the industrial economy to a networked economy built on computers, connectivity, and human knowledge. The networked economy is characterized by rapidly changing market conditions and methods of commerce. Instead of leveraging human strength with machines as was done in the industrial economy, the networked economy leverages human knowledge with computers and connectivity to produce goods and services. The networked economy requires t
Analyse Hair and Scalp
Learn about diagnosis and treatment of scalp conditions.
Fixing Vine Health Problems
This lesson is divided into four sections, as follows: Factors relating to controlling plant health; Chemical control; Integrated Pest Management (IPM); Modifying growing conditions
Implement staff training
This learning object encompasses the competency involved in providing training in the workplace (but for whom the training function is not a major part of their job).

Hearing is a familiar and important human sense that is a topic naturally of interest to those who are curious about human biology. This unit will enable you to relate what you read to your own sensory experiences – and indeed many of the questions asked have exactly that function. This unit will be best understood by those with some biological understanding.
Evaluate and improve HR processes and tools
Managing the HR function involves not only putting processes, procedures, and tools into action, it also entails implementing a continuous improvement process. This resource outlines methods and tools the HR manager can use to evaluate the contribution of HR to organisational goals, and to evaluate HR activities themselves.

Systems Testing for a website
The company you work for have expanded their operations to include web-hosting services. This project involves investigating systems testing tools and using these tools to ensure the web server/websites function as required. You are required to develop a test plan and prepare the test environment for testing the web server and individual websites. You then need to conduct testing of the individual and system components and analyse test results.
