11.201 Gateway: Planning Action (MIT)
This course introduces incoming students in the Master in City Planning (MCP) program to the theory and history of planning in the public interest. It relies primarily on challenging real-world cases to highlight persistent dilemmas: the power and limits of planning, the multiple roles in which planners find themselves in communities around the globe, and the political, ethical, and practical dilemmas that planners face as they try to be effective. As such, the course provides an introduction to
Bruce Degen (Magic School Bus)
In elementary school he said he had a wonderful teacher, he was always doing art in the back of the room. His teachers would always hang up his art around the school. He reflects that his artwork was a huge part of his life. He says authors need to be clear, readers need to know what is going on, it needs to be truthful. He also talks about how the writing comes first and then the illustrations. He uses real pictures to draw the kids in his stories, some are based on kids his son went to school

A U.S. plan to freeze Israeli settlements fails to impress West Bank settlers, Palestinians. Katharine Jackson reports.
L'ADN est une notion qui pose problème aux élèves de lycée aussi nous nous proposons d'identifier et de classer les conceptions des élèves sur ce sujet. Pour cette analyse, nous avons utilisé la notion de mutation, qui permet d'étudier à la fois, comme nous le souhaitions, la structure et la fonction de l'ADN. Après avoir effectué une étude bibliographique et une analyse du savoir, nous avons cherché à vérifier l'existence de six niveaux biologiques dans les productions des élèv
This paper reports findings from a survey and interviews with children aged 1116 years, teachers and parents on their attitudes to e-safety in relation to social networking and media creation (Web 2.0) and their practices at school and at home. The results showed that 74% of the children surveyed have used social network (SN) sites and that a substantial minority regularly interact socially online with people they have not met face-to-face. Online interaction forms a different, although overla
To promote the integration of Desktop related Knowledge Management and Technology Enhanced Learning this deliverable aims at increasing the awareness of Desktop research within the Professional Learning community and at familiarizing the e-Learning researchers with the state-of-the-art in the relevant areas of Personal Information Management (PIM), as well as with the currently on-going activities and some of the regular PIM publication venues.,Research report of the ProLearn Network of Excellen
In this paper, we present a standard definition for learning objects, a controversy around it, and the resulted working definition, along with features to be held by learning objects, benefits of the object-oriented approach for learning, some pros and cons for using learning objects, and finally some quality standard guidelines for these objects. In addition, we introduce shortly a taxonomy of learning object types and the metadata standards that can be used for learning objects and the way the
In this paper we present DSTM, a framework that enables the operationalization and the refinement of problem-solving methods modelled within the TaskMethod paradigm. DSTM proposes an operational kernel, i.e. operational but flexible high-level constructions: modelling primitives, such as task or method, and manipulation mechanisms, such as select a method. These constructions can be customized in order to better capture the paper-based model to be operationalized. This permits the construction
This deliverable aims at presenting and analysing the processes of elaboration and validation of the PALETTE scenarios. After having defined these two processes and situated them into the PALETTE methodology, the scenarios are presented. For each scenario, the specific methodology of elaboration and validation is described with a special focus on the participation of the concerned Communities of Pratcice (CoPs). Then the results of the validation are presented as well as the reports of their tec
Students will be guided to analyze problems and develop strategies based on real world drug management issues including regulations, manufacture, procurement, distribution, safety, policy, financing and the unique aspects of international pharmaceutical trade, the role of the World Trade Organization - Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (WTO-TRIPS), government, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and individuals/programs in the selection and use of pharmaceutical products.
Provides an understanding of the complex and challenging public health issue of food security and in a world where one billion people are under-nourished while another billion are overweight.
Public health workers need to understand and implement basic concepts of personal preparedness planning so that they can function effectively as public health emergency responders in a post-9/11 world.
The focus of this contribution is the relationship between the purpose to use an ePortfolio and its design. By highlighting the relationship between purposes and design of an ePortfolio, we want to present a framework that gives directives to use an ePortfolio in an educational context. When used for lifelong learning and / or assessment for learning, student-ownership and reflection are important characteristics. When used for accreditation (=assessment of learning) the use of standar

In this extended abstract we outline a Web-based learning approach for e-Business integration issues. We present a virtual toolbox, including an advisable open source tool and Web Service Application Programming Interfaces (WS APIs). By applying a collaborative learning model and by incorporating Web 2.0 features such as Web services, operating with the SOAP protocol, we were able to increase the motivational background as well as the learning success of our students significantly.
ICT collaborative environments surpasses old practices with drawing learning closer to a real life with interactivity and authenticity of real world problems in learning and consequently reducing de-contextualization in the learning process. Contemporary educational ICT usage in learning processes is student-centred. In 1993 University of Stanford (USA) started an ICT supported distance learning course named Architecture/Engineering/Construction Computer Integrated Global Teamwork Course (AEC Gl
