How the Solar System was Made
At 4.6 billion years old, the Solar System is our solid, secure home in the Universe. But how did it come to be? In this episode we trace the system's birth from a thin cloud of dust and gas. Shocked by a nearby supernova, the pull of gravity and natural rotation spun it into a flat disc from which the Sun and planets coalesced. It all happened in the space of 700 million years, during which the planets jockeyed for position, dodging the brutal bombardment of deadly asteroids and setting in

"Even with this developing knowledge, the application of screw propulsion to boats could not take place until the advent of steam power. Due to greater suitability with the slow-turning, early steam engines, the first powerboats used paddle wheels for a form of water propulsion. In 1660, Toogood and Hays adopted the Archimedean screw as a ship propeller. Even by the 19th century, screw propulsion was still

Modelli e sistemi per l'e-Learning
Questo articolo propone una tassonomia dei modelli di e-learning adottabili all’interno di progetti di formazione integrata. Qui le diverse classi si differenziano per due elementi fondamentali riconducibili al processo (modalità d’apprendimento) e al modello del sistema che lo realizza. La scelta di un approccio rispetto ad un altro è determinata dalle realtà organizzative, formative, pratiche e tecnologiche dei diversi contesti di formazione. La tassonomia si articola in tre classi fond
Computer Renderings ? ?Reality is Overrated?
In this paper, two problems concerning truthfulness of computer-generated visualization are considered. The first one concerns relationships between reality and its representation by computer renderings. The second problem concerns the kind of representations people need. These problems are analyzed for static perception of architectural forms based on computer visualization, and for dynamic walk-through perception of urban space. The thesis of the paper is that many photorealistic renderings ar
ICT-enhanced Teacher training for Lifelong Competence
In this paper we are giving an example of how Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) can enhance the process of Teacher training, and how this can be used for Lifelong Competence Development of teachers. We show how one particular methodology for teaching and training soft skills can be further enhanced by the use of ICT. We show how the use of Learning Design centred software platform for lifelong competence development can enhance the in-service training of teachers.

The First Decade of Informatics in Dutch High Schools
Informatics is currently being taught in high schools all over the world. In the Netherlands, where all students are expected to become computer literate in the lower grades of high school (Hulsen et al., 2005), it has been decided not to consider computer literacy as being part of Informatics. What, then, should be the content of the Informatics curriculum taught in the higher grades? What should be taught, how and to whom? How should students' achievements be assessed? The answers to these que
Patchworking as a Metaphor for Learning
Understanding youth, learning and technology
On basis of a close empirical examination of a Danish team of 'Power Users' and their work on a self-chosen learning challenge this thesis argues how we can theoretically understand, analyse and methodologically approach learning processes through the metaphorical lens of patchworking. The metaphor of patchworking highlights how learning processes can be seen as processes of stitching and weaving together different patches and pieces into something new. The patches and pieces may not

CONCEPTUAL KMS ARCHITECTURE WITHIN ENTERPRISE 2.0 AND CLOUD COMPUTING
Today, the adoption of Enterprise 2.0 is not an option, but a must for knowledge-based organizations within the changing social paradigms. The new-coming generation of employees and customers expect technological proficiency to be part of the customer-centered business models. On their turn, organizations need to apply new forms of cooperation with their employees, customers, suppliers and partners. The knowledge is recognized as crucial resource and its efficient management determines sustainab

Capitalisation dune ressource en or : le dictionnaire
The goal of this paper is to explore extensions to electronic dictionaries. Adding certain functions could considerably extend the range of tasks for which they could provide support. Putting the needed information at the distance of a mouse click would allow for active reading. This would require tight coupling of the dictionary with a text editor: all the information in the dictionary should be accessible via a mouseclick. Dictionaries combined with a flashcard system and an exercise generator
Cultures in negotiation: teachers acceptance/resistance attitudes considering the infusion of
A teachers training project, employing teacher-mentored in-school training approach, has been recently initiated in Greek secondary education for the introduction of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) into the classroom. Data resulting from this project indicate that although teachers express considerable interest in learning how to use technology they need consistent support and extensive training in order to consider themselves able for integrating it into their instructional pra
