Diversity in the workplace: how it affects the bottom line
Be it male-female or multi-cultural, diversity is an offshoot of today’s global economy, the workforce more and more reflecting society’s make-up. But with unemployment having increased since the economic crisis, corporate diversity targets - in the developed world, at least- are in jeopardy, with the remaining workforce left largely unmotivated, disillusioned, and prepared to jump ship at the next job offer. How can companies cope? And can maintaining workforce diversity be an asset or a li

Bank Valuation and Value-based Management
Unlike bank textbooks that emphasize institutional arrangements in the banking world, a first purpose of the book is to propose a sound valuation model for banks. Surprisingly, very few publications are available on the subject. Anchored in the fields of economics and finance, it provides not only useful tools to value banks, but also an integrated value-based management framework to discuss managerial issues such as: fund transfer pricing, risk-adjusted performance evaluation, deposit pricing,

Enabling Mobile Collaborative Learning through Multichannel Interactions
The work presented here shows an architecture to integrate multiple communication channels for a simple communication tool: a weblog. The motivation for this work is to enable learners to access learning services regardless of their situation. Indeed, in some cases the access to these services is quite hard because people are on the move or don't easily have access to an Internet connection. This article presents the different elements that fit into the architecture which lay the path for a rich

Digital astronomy in education
What causes seasons? Why day and night durations are so different with seasons alternation? Why the position of the full moon seems directed to the south in summer while it seems directed to the north in winter? It is the purpose of this computer simulation to provide an interactive application, programmed in Java language to explore the issues related to the above questions.

Co-Lab, design considerations for a collaborative inquiry learning environment
Co-Lab is a learning environment for collaborative inquiry learning in which learners can experiment, make models, consult background information and discuss their findings. The complex learning processes in such an environment need to be supported by appropriate features in the software. In this paper we report on how, based on existing literature and specific user and usability studies, we developed a set of design guidelines that were implemented in the software.

Four Easy Pieces: Development Systems for Knowledge-Based Generative Instruction
The Experimental Advanced Design Advisor (XAIDA) is a system for the development of computer-based maintenance training. XAIDA acquires knowledge of a device from a subject matter expert and applies common maintenance-training procedures to generate interactive training from the description. XAIDA provides maintenance training in four areas: the physical characteristics of a device, its theory of operation, operating and maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting. XAIDA relies on an instruction

Grounding Collaborative Knowledge Building in Semantics-Based Critiquing
In this paper we investigate the use of Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA), Critiquing Systems, and Knowledge Building to support computer-based teaching of English composition. We have built and tested an English Composition Critiquing System that make use of LSA to analyze student essays and compute feedback by comparing their essays with teacher's model essays. LSA values are input to a critiquing component to provide a user interface for the students. A software agent can also use the critic fe

The role of roles in the analysis of interactions in collaborative environments
Analysis of interactions has become a basic function in the field of collaborative learning, as a means for supporting both students' self-regulation as well as formative evaluation processes. However, we observe a lack of methods and tools for the analysis of interactions in CSCL that considerer the different roles implied in collaboration management processes, both from the point of view of the actors that take part in a typical CSCL scenario: teachers, students or the system

SALL: Specifying a system to Support Academics' Lifelong Learning
This project focuses on the specification of a system to support academics during the lifelong learning process. The initial data collection involved conducting interviews and a survey amongst academics from several disciplines. The collected data was combined with learning theories to reveal the ways in which technology could support academics. Subsequently, the needs that would be addressed by the proposed system were considered. Accordingly, the guided metaphor of the system was decided to be

In this research work, we have a didactical look on the integration of a computer tool into mathematics teaching: the spreadsheet. We have related research about spreadsheet to an instrumental approach perceived as essential to analyze the questions of technological integration. This approach allowed us to extend to this technology the theoretical framework of instrumentation. These theoretical elements are being used in the analysis of the professional resources and the teaching practices, in o

Re-conceptualising ICT in geography teaching
This paper is concerned with the ways in which ICT is conceptualised in geography education in England. Our argument is that the way ICT has been conceptualised in school geography is clearly linked to a particular view of geography as a subject, one based on ideas of positivist and empiricist science. Other views of geographical knowledge based on humanist and realist approaches to science have been neglected. In this paper we describe this dominant approach, and suggest how these features are
