This fun Web site is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they see how DNA is used to solve crimes against animals. The activity starts with an introduction to George Amato, an AMNH scientist who sometimes helps the U.S. government solve mysteries. In a three-part online slide show, students see how Amato earned the title "DNA Detective" in 1993 when he helped the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service catch someone trying to sneak protected re
The Amazing Mundo is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. In this interactive comic strip (also available as a printable PDF), kids are challenged to determine the composition of everyday objects.
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
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

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
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.

A framework for processsolution analysis in collaborative learning environments
One of the most challenging aspects of computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) research is automation of collaboration and interaction analysis in order to understand and improve the learning processes. It is particularly necessary to look in more depth at the joint analysis of the collaborative process and its resulting product. In this article, we present a framework for comprehensive analysis in CSCL synchronous environments supporting a problem-solving approach to learning. This fra
Scales: Major Scales, Minor Scales, Modal Scales
There are many different types of scales that musicians have used down through the years, but the most-used scale is the major scale, followed by the minor scale. Other scales include all the "Modal Scales" such as Dorian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian, etc. This short video is an overview of these scales. Run time 12:51.
