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

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

1882-05-19: Sage, Margaret Olivia Slocum, to Edwin D. Morgan
This image is a handwritten letter from Margaret Olivia Slocum Sage to Edwin D. Morgan. The writer discusses a problem with the New-York Woman's Hospital's heating system that causes it to burn more coal than necessary and provide less heat than desired.,Margaret Olivia Sage recounts her visit to the furnace room of the Woman's Hospital and discusses in some detail the functioning of the heating system. She pleads with New York Governor Morgan for more coal for the Hospital. While thus transgres

Fe, Ni 30, C 0.3 (wt%), quenched - martensite plates
This sample was quenched to -80 °C to give a metastable martensitic microstructure. The martensite plates show a lenticular morphology as the material attempts to shear as it transforms but is unable to open up voids at the grain boundaries. The plates form in a similar way to mechanical twins but the shear processes lead to changes in crystal structure as well as crystallographic orientation.

Manipulation of Light in the Nanoworld
"Manipulation of Light in the Nanoworld" extends the standard topics of wavelength, diffraction, and interference into the nanoscale by introducing students to the concept of photonic crystals. Hands-on activities present macro and microscale diffraction and interference effects in an engaging way. Computer simulations that parallel some of these hand-on activities allow students to observe the changes in these effects as objects move from the micro to the nanoscale. These concepts are then appr

George Ellis on The Nature of the Physical World
On Thursday 17 September the Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts GIPCA Great Texts Big Questions lecture will present an opportunity to hear one of the worlds leading cosmologists discuss the way scientific and everyday views of the nature of things relate to each other. How do relativity theory quantum theory and cosmological theory change our views of the world and the universe? How do they relate to every day life?
