The Brain of the Future
 The Graduate School Centre at the University of Nottingham was formally opened on 12th October 2006 by Baroness Susan Greenfield, Director of the Royal Institution of Great Britain and Fullerian Professor of Physiology and Comparative Anatomy at Oxford University. In this key note speech, Baroness Greenfield considers how humans will communicate and learn in the future, as technology becomes increasingly sophisticated, and the pace of change within society becomes ever faster.

Do students ideas about the antigen-antibody reaction change when they are gathered to design an exp
This study is a preliminary work before the development of the CoPEX software that helps students and teachers to design experimental procedure. To this date, there are no other intelligent learning environments for this task. An experiment was done in two high schools during an immunology course (a lecture and a practical work). It is done in ecological conditions during a laboratory session with students majoring in science (ISCED level 3A-16/18 years old). Students designed (imagined, wrote a

Innovative pedagogical and psychological perspectives of podcasts
Podcasting, being a new form of audio distribution offering the possibility to be loaded on personal mobile devices from teachers’, student’, university’s websites and blogs, is discussed as an activity with potential in learning and teaching. The existing and potential varieties of podcasts represent sources for learning, converging, socializing. In this paper, podcasting is supported as an innovative approach to stimulate university students’ reflection, specifically on epistemic quest

Design approaches in technology enhanced learning
Design is a critical to the successful development of any interactive learning environment (ILE). Moreover, in technology enhanced learning (TEL), the design process requires input from many diverse areas of expertise. As such, anyone undertaking tool development is required to directly address the design challenge from multiple perspectives. We provide a motivation and rationale for design approaches for learning technologies that draws upon Simon's seminal proposition of Design Science (Simon,

Knowledge, the keystone of TEL design
This talk outlines the arguments supporting the claim that knowledge is the keystone of the design of Technology enhanced learning (TEL) environments. First, I consider the meaning we could attach to knowledge and knowing, and I introduce the notion of “conception”. Second, I explore how far the problématique of validation is central in our research. And to conclude, I introduce a characterisation of conceptions, which could help in addressing the problem of TEL design at a theoretical level.

Mind Over Matter
This Web site from the National Institute on Drug Abuse focuses on the brain's response to drugs. Students navigate through a series of colorful and informative pages that describe certain regions of the brain and how the chemicals in drugs like marijuana, stimulants, hallucinogens, inhalants, opiates, and steroids can harm them. To aid teachers with the brain anatomy and function, a helpful teacher's guide accompanies the site, as well as more detailed information on the drug effects.
