Map Your World
Map Your World is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they learn about plans by mapping their rooms. The activity begins with a brief explanation of the variety of maps we use, explaining how archaeologists use plans. Kids are then given step-by-step directions for creating a plan that shows their room and its contents. Directions for two additional activities are included, Map a Bigger World and Map Your Room to Scale.
This fun Web site is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they take a behind-the-scenes look at the biodiversity that's part of the many things they eat and use daily. The site opens by asking kids a series of questions to get them thinking about the ingredients in common foods and products. Then it takes them to a well-stocked kitchen, where they can mouse over everything from chocolate chip cookies and coffee to cough drops and cold m
Keeping a Genetics Field Journal
By keeping a field journal, kids gain insight into local wildlife and the role of genetics in this OLogy activity. The activity begins by telling kids that scientists learn about animals by observing them and by analyzing DNA. They then are given directions for how to keep a field journal that tracks the appearance and behavior of an animal of their choice. Kids are asked to write down any questions they have about the animal that could be answered with DNA analysis. The activity includes a samp
This fun Web site is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they take travel along with museum scientists to investigate biodiversity in Australia, Madagascar, and the Bahamas.
If Trash Could Talk
If Trash Could Talk is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they learn why ancient trash pits can be buried treasure chests for archaeologists. The activity begins by explaining how ancient trash can provide clues about how people lived. Then, kids are given step-by-step directions about how to go through a trash can from their house, chronicling and categorizing what they find. The activity includes a Trash Checklist, a printable PDF w
Geology and Human Health
This site from the "On the Cutting Edge" workshop series contains a variety of educational and supporting materials for both students and faculty teaching in the emerging field of geology and human health. You will find links to internet resources, books, teaching activities, and a group listserv, as well as posters, presentations and discussions from the spring 2004 workshop on Geology and Human Health.
American Visionaries: Thomas Moran

Alaska Public Lands Information Center, Educational Adventures
features information on a variety of educational kits and field trips throughout Alaska. Each year the program delivers programs to thousands of students about the importance of our national parks, state parks, national forests, and national wildlife refuges in providing recreation, resources, and habitat for wildlife.
Biomechatronics is a contraction of biomechanics and mechatronics. In this course the function and coordination of the human motion apparatus is the central focus, and the design of assistive devices for the support of the function of the motion apparatus. Study Goals: The student must be able to: 1. Make a Problem Analysis of a given assignment in the field of the human motion apparatus and its interaction with an assistive device ; Identify the underlying cause [pathology] of the problem as p

Computational GRIDs and online laboratories
Many projects addressing the creation of online laboratories have been developed recently. They have a common goal: to enable students and professional learners to get hands-on experience without moving from the places where they are. Nevertheless, the found solutions are often very different among them, and interoperability between different online laboratories systems does not exist. In this paper we present our work around the exploitation of Grid technologies for sharing instrumentation and

Information and Service Design Symposium
The UC Berkeley School of Information hosts a symposium to launch the new Information and Service Design (ISD) program at the I School. The symposium features the best graduate student papers on the Information and Services Economy. Introducing the ISD Program and the Symposium AnnaLee Saxenian, Dean, School of Information Bob Glushko, Adjunct Professor, School of Information Christo Sims - Defining Services for Designers This paper is part of a larger effort to improve methodologies for servic
Mind games, reasoning skills, and the primary school curriculum
This paper reports on a pilot research project aimed at helping to develop some strategic and reasoning abilities in primary school pupils by engaging them in educational itineraries based on the use of a number of computer mind games. The paper briefly describes the project's aims and organization, the kind of games used and the working methodology adopted. It then focuses on some of the cognitive abilities activated by the games. Finally, some pedagogical considerations derived from the study
Literature Review in Citizenship, Technology and Learning
Taking on both how ICT can be used to support citizenship education and how citizenship education needs to reflect changes in technology use in the workplace and day to day life, this publication summarises both theoretical and empirical research evidence in the field. It examines possible roles for ICT in engendering discussion, as a source of information, as a means of producing materials, and for enabling whole school activities on citizenship.,A NESTA Futurelab Research report - report 3

Technology Enhanced Learning in Mathematics: the cross-experimentation approach adopted by the TELMA
This contribution deals with the work of TELMA, a European Research Team of the Kaleidoscope Network of Excellence. In particular the "cross-experimentation" project is presented. Such project was developed by TELMA to understand the role played by theoretical frameworks in setting up experiments using Interactive Learning Environments (ILE) for mathematics. The paper focuses on the methodological dimension of this project.
