Using Handheld Wireless Computers to Increase Interactivity and Collaborative Learning in Large Clas
We conducted a pilot study to determine the effectiveness of wireless, handheld computers in fostering active and collaborative learning in lecture-based teaching. We compared the capabilities of the largest type of handheld, the Jornada 820, to that of the smallest, a Handspring Visor "personal digital assistant." This article describes our use of the handhelds in a variety of classroom exercises, emphasizing wireless internet access. We explain our successes, problems, and proposed solutions.

Technical Paper 7 - The Effective Provision of Pre-School Education (EPPE) Project: Social/behaviour
This Technical Paper describes the results of analyses of young children's cognitive progress during their time in pre-school. Equivalent results on social behavioural development are reported in EPPE Technical Paper 8b. Five measures of cognitive attainment assessed at entry to primary school have been studied: pre-reading, language attainment, two measures of non-verbal attainment and early number concepts. A range of statistical methods (multilevel modelling) have been used to analyse data fo
The Evolution and Future of Bioengineering at Georgia Tech
After 26 years on the Georgia Tech faculty, Bob Nerem and his wife, Marilyn, are ensuring the Institute's continued preeminence in the field of bioengineering. The couple has made plans in their estate that will one day establish the Marilyn R. and Robert M. Nerem faculty chair or professorship in Georgia Tech's Parker H. Petit Institute of Bioengineering and Bioscience.
Interactive Animation on the Macintosh II
The efficiency of images in communication between humans has so far been used almost exclusively by TV and other mass medias. The costs have been too great to encourage the use of images in the financially restricted everyday practice of architecture. With a range of application programs for the Apple Macintosh II the vision has come close to reality. It is now possible to create guided walks with the chance to choose different routes and views in a model of buildings and surroundings in 256 col
9.57J Language Acquisition (MIT)
Covers the major results in the study of first language acquisition concentrating on the development of linguistic structure, including sentence structure and morphology. Universal aspects of development are discussed, as well as a variety of cross-linguistic phenomena. Theories of language learning are considered, including parameter-setting and maturation.

King Lear to In the loop : fiction and British politics
On 11 December 2009, Nottingham University's Centre for British Politics held a conference at the British Academy that drew together politicians, writers and academics to explore the interaction of British politics and fiction. In addition to the conference several video interviews were conducted with some of the speakers on the day. In this interview taken at the Fiction and British Politics Conference in London, writer Laurence Marks discusses his political screenwriting with Maurice Gran,
Leah Nichols: Bodies (as mass) + Building (as mass)
Architecture Final Reviews were presented by students in the Architecture Program at California College of the Arts. Filmed at CCA's San Francisco campus April 27--29, 2012, 9 a.m.--7 p.m. Terming a collection of bodies "a mass" redefines bodies from another programmatic factor to an active force, a malleable, porous architecture in itself. The merging together of Oakland City Hall and the adjacent Frank H. Ogawa Plaza will respond to the active force of bodies as mass by instigating both the f

The anatomy cookbook: A dissection guide with recipes
The Anatomy Cookbook has been written to accompany an anatomy and physiology course for bioengineers who would otherwise have missed out on the opportunity to study real organ systems at first hand. It is not an alternative to a standard anatomy text, it acts more as a laboratory supplement. The fun bit is that your kitchen takes the place of the dissection room. Each recipe provides an insight into one or more organs, and all you need to do is go to the supermarket and be prepared to think abou
Automation of Deck Bridge Representations
The bridge deck has a apparent simple shape, but it is the result of an adequate combination of two longitudinal geometric components: the deck shape evolution along de longitudinal section the layout of the road, that acts in simultaneous over a cross section, defining the deck exact shape. A geometric modelling computer programme was developed for box girder decks, allowing the generation of cross sections along the deck, defined with correct shape and location. In the elaboration of the deck

The Re-Convergence of Art and Science: A Vehicle for Creativity
Ever-increasing complexity in product design and the need to deliver a cost-effective solution that benefits from a dynamic approach requires the employment and adoption of innovative design methods which ensure that products are of the highest quality and meet or exceed customers' expectations. According to Bronowski (1976) science and art were originally two faces of the same human creativity. However, as civilisation advances and works became specialised, the dichotomy of science and art grad
