Perception par le tuteur de l'activité d'un apprenant engagé dans une activité collective à dist
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. Ces moyens s'appuient sur une perc
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
A bootstrapping scenario for elicitating CSCL services within a GRID virtual community
Amongst the various eLearning techniques, Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) is of growing interest within the academic world. However, during the first phase of the EleGI project, a noticable fact has been the difficulty to match the user needs with the potentiality of the GRID services. Thus, through a fictive scenario, this article proposes to walk the path between the idea of creating a new virtual community and the realisation of this objective. This scenario takes the situat

Collaborative Concept Mapping in Education: Major Research Trends
Since the late eighties, more and more researchers have been exploring the potential of collaborative concept mapping to support learning. In those studies, students construct concept maps in pairs or in small groups. This paper presents a review of research trends on collaborative concept mapping in education. We present an overview of the theoretical framework, methodology and main results of 39 published studies investigating this topic.
Resource-adaptive Selection of Strategies in Learning from Worked-Out Examples
Most tasks can be pursued by using different strategies (Logan, 1985; Reder & Schunn, 1998). In this paper we focus on strategies of learning from worked-out examples. Within a resourceoriented framework these different strategies can be classified according to their costs and benefits. These features may determine which strategy will be selected for accomplishing a task in situations with certain resource limitations. We investigate specific hypotheses about strategic adaptations to resource li
CoP-independent meta-ontologies and support ontologies
This deliverable offers a theoretical background on which the KM services will be based. It deals with the meta-models necessary for the Knowledge Management services and concerns the development and the choices of CoP-independent ontologies. The existing models for each main concept determined as important in a CoP are presented, the discussions on these models summarized and finally the proposal of the model adopted for Palette is presented.,PALETTE deliverable - report number D.KNO.01 - 83 pa
A device helping learners to self-assess themselves
In this paper, we introduce the architecture of an environment, which aims at helping learners in their self-assessment process. We show how we integrated three systems to build an experimental device based on this architecture. We then present the experiment we conducted to show the utility of this device and also to validate our hypothesis that it is easier for learners to self-assess themselves from an exercises-point of view than from a knowledge-point of view.

"We Had to Be So Careful" A German Farmer's Recollections of Anti-German Sentiment in World War I
German Americans had a complex response to the attacks on their loyalty that emerged when the United States went to war against Germany in 1917. During and after the war, many German Americans began to conceal their ethnic identity--some changed their names; others stopped speaking German; still others quit German-American organizations. Many, like Frank Brocke, son of a German-American farmer, tried to keep a low profile. In this interview, Frank Brocke discussed his own assimilation (he later

Small Jubilee, A
'A Small Jubilee' presents images of student uprisings, amusement parks, and street scenes. The images are processed and animated and alternate between black and white and color saturated. Dramatic text with religious overtones by Shalom Gorewitz and Beo Morales is spoken as a voiceover and examines religious symbolism.

Architectural Design, Level III: A Student Center for MIT, Fall 2004
This studio will investigate the social, physiological and phenomenological elements of a student gathering place on the MIT campus. Whether it is simply for socializing or for more specific events, the student gathering place will serve as a refuge from the vigorous educational environment of the Institute, and reinforce the sense of "play" through a sensible organization of the program. The place will foster a casual discovery of a sense of "being": a reflection upon the student's own existenc
