Meridian and Acupoint 2
Acupuncture is a complex therapeutic practice of inserting medical needles to stimulate specific anatomic points in a body (called acupoints). Based on the body of principles drawn from Yin-Yang theory, the five phase theory, and the meridian theory, manual acupuncture aims to improve symptoms through the regulation of the flow of Qi. Manual acupuncture has been frequently and successfully employed for clinical treatment in East Asian countries for numerous centuries. We will learn, memory, and

Joint Bachelor Degree in Information Technology
This paper will present the BIT2010 project, a project that will be developed and implemented during the period 2006-2009, under the Socrates-Erasmus Curriculum Development scheme, financed by the European Commission. Based on the influence of the ICT domain on the most important worlds economies, the emergency of new higher education programs in ICT is presented. The needs for a new ICT graduates profile and a new ICT Curriculum were taken into consideration. Clear achievements in the areas
Academic research for schools
Academic subjects are usually extremely far from actual problems and questions of academic research. Material at school is often presented as a sum of fixed, immovable facts one has to learn, although in the world of research these facts may be regarded as questionable or even disproved. On the other hand, pupils rarely have an understanding of how facts are developed and understood. As it is impossible to bring a researcher to every school, we are working on the project that would help research
Obstacles to the development of conceptual understanding in observational astronomy: the case of spa
Simple everyday phenomena like the day - night cycle and the sequence of four seasons are taught at the higher level of elementary education and the lower level of secondary education in Cyprus. Even though there is no specific subject dedicated to Astronomy or spatial reasoning, the day night cycle, the sequence of the four seasons and the sequence of the lunar phases are part of the national curriculum of Geography. For this reason, the construction of conceptual understanding in basic Astr
Self-directed learning in simulation-based discovery environments
SIMQUEST1 is an authoring system for designing and creating simulation-based learn-ing environments. The special character of SIMQUEST learning environments is that they include cognitive support for learners which means that they provide learners with support in the discovery process. In SIMQUEST learning environments we try to find the balance between direct guidance of the learning process and sufficient free-dom for learners to regulate the learning process themselves. In this article we de-
Vers une modélisation d'une géométrie en actes dans les activités de lecture tracé du bâtiment
La recherche présentée ici s'inscrit dans un projet national qui répond à un objectif social de transformations des formations professionnelles. L'activité professionnelle considérée requière des prises de décision dépendant d'une lecture adéquate de plans pour effectuer des tracés dans l'espace du chantier. La modélisation d'une telle activité par une géométrie en acte articule des connaissances théoriques de la géométrie euclidienne, des connaissances rendant compte des aspe
Lutilisation dun arbre des tâches pour concevoir et analyser des situations dapprentissage :
Afin de prendre en compte les difficultés que les élèves ont pour donner du sens aux activités expérimentales, ce qui leur fait perdre de vue lobjectif initial du T.P. et les connaissances visées, nous proposons de leur faire concevoir le protocole des expériences. À travers trois exemples de situations de T.P. mises au point et expérimentées dans des classes de Terminale S, nous montrons comment la structuration du protocole expérimental dans un arbre de tâche, permet d'analyser e
Autoregolazione dell'apprendimento e tecnologie didattiche
This paper introduces the concept of Self-Regulated Learning and analyses the possible support granted by Educational Technology for its practice and development.
It's About Interactive Learning
This paper draws on results of a research project InterActive Education: Teaching and Learning in the Information Age. The overall aim of the project is to examine the ways in which new technologies can be used in educational settings to enhance learning. To this end the project centres around the design and evaluation of teaching and learning initiatives for pupils from the age of eight to eighteen. Within this paper we report on our work with teachers and pupils, who have developed learning i
Case studies: technology enhanced public spaces for intergenerational learning
This deliverable undertakes the analysis of four case studies in the three key dimensions of La Piazza: intergenerational learning, ICT and physical spaces. The report shows the common characteristics of the cases, good practices as well as issues for further research, in order to facilitate the planning of the co-design seminars, that will follow next in the project. The report includes in the Annexes the individual case reports of the cases.,research report - deliverable number : D38.3.1
DIANE, a diagnosis system for arithmetical problem solving
We hereby describe DIANE an environment that aims at performing an automatic diagnosis on arithmetic problems depending on the productions of the learners. This work relies on results from cognitive psychology studies that insist on the fact that problem solving depends to a great extent on the construction of an adequate representation of the problem, which is highly constrained. DIANE allows large-scale experimentations and has the specificity of providing diagnosis at a very detailed level of
Changes in grouping practices over primary and secondary school
The research detailed in this paper provides a systematic description and analysis of classroomgrouping practices in primary and secondary schools in England. Practices are compared to main findings in developmental and educational literature with regard to effective contexts for learning and recent ideas about pedagogy. The research is based on an analysis of 4924 pupil groupings from672 Reception, Year 2 and Year 5 classes in 331 primary schools and 248 Year 7 and Year 10 classes in 47 seconda
Technical Paper 2 - The Effective Provision of Pre-School Education (EPPE) Project: Characteristics
In this paper the relationships between young children's entry assessments and various child (e.g. age, gender, ethnicity) and parent characteristics (e.g. educational and occupational background) are explored, to examine the extent to which variation between children in their cognitive and social-behavioural attainments can be accounted for by different factors. Marked differences between individual pre-school centres were identified in terms of the characteristics of children entering the EPPE
