Working with charts, graphs and tables
Your course might not include any maths or technical content but, at some point during your course, it’s likely that you’ll come across information represented in charts, graphs and tables. You’ll be expected to know how to interpret this information. This unit will help you to develop the skills you need to do this. This unit can be used in conjunction with the ‘More working with charts, graphs and tables’ unit, which looks into more ways to present statistical information and shows y

"The Lady of Shalott" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson (poetry reading)
I did a reading a couple of years ago but I had a frog in my throat that morning - hopefully this is a less-froggy version. Arthurian legends were a favourite theme for Alfred Lawn Tennis - he made most of them up himself. Terse Verse: Saw knight pass In glass. Left room, Full of gloom. Stole boat, Died afloat. ...

Gridcole: a tailorable grid service based system that supports scripted collaborative learning
This paper introduces Gridcole, a new system that can be easily tailored by educators in order to support the realization of scripted collaborative learning situations. To do so, educators can provide a script specifying the sequence of activities to be performed by learners as well as the tools and documents required to support them. Gridcole can then search for these tools in a service-oriented grid in order to integrate them so that they are available for users during the realization of the s

Giving teachers a hand(book) to develop ict-enhanced skills
Shared web-based knowledge bases, enriched with the possibilities of discussing about their content and of proposing new one, seem to offer the opportunity to diffuse pedagogical innovation. To this aim, the knowledge base should enable teachers to put their own ideas at colleagues’ disposal; and moreover, to improve their pedagogical knowledge by availing themselves of colleagues’ proposals and suggestions. Thus, personal growth evolves in shared knowledge and vice-versa, facilitating the for

Learning Objects 4: Applications, Implications, & Future Direction
This is the fourth and final book of this series on Learning Objects (LO). Whereas the first three books were essentially concerned with current developments in the field, this book presents a wide-ranging series of discussions of potential and probable developments in the field. Part I encompasses Chapters 1 through Chapter 5. The focus is upon LO within the context of e-learning and online learning. We realize that our authors (like us) often use the terms "e-learning" and "online learning" in

4 A thinking disposition and the process of development
Diagrams, mind-maps, tables, graphs, time lines, flow charts, sequence diagrams, decision trees: all can be used to organise thought. This unit will introduce you to a variety of thinking skills. Asking and answering questions is at the heart of high-quality thinking. Questions naturally arise from the desire to know and learn about things and may be the starting point for a journey of understanding.

Basic Math - Number Patterns
Studying number patterns is important for two reasons. First, they help one better understand the concepts of arithmetic and provide a basis for understanding the concepts of more complex mathematics (algebra, trigonometry, calculus). Second, pattern recognition is a useful problem-solving skill, both in mathematics and in real-world situations. Patterns involving odd and even numbers are investigated. Patterns in multiples of certain numbers lead to an understanding of divisibility rules. Seque
