Krivec, Tjaša; Muck, Tadeja; Germadnik, Rolanda Fugger; Majnaric, Igor; Golob, Gorazd – Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, 2014
Everyone has the right to freely participate in the cultural life of the community (United Nations, 2012). In Europe and around the globe, many efforts have been made in order to include people with visual impairments and blindness into the cultural life. The objects and artifacts exhibited in museums for people with visual impairments are…

Vestad, Ingeborg Lunde – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2014
In this article I discuss children's everyday uses of recorded music (such as CDs, Mp3-files) in the light of sociological notions of "children" and "childhood". The discussion provides perspectives on musical engagement and musicality that supplement perspectives within developmental psychology. The study is based on…

Snyder, Robin M. – Association Supporting Computer Users in Education, 2014
Just as the cost of high quality laser printing started in the tens of thousands of dollar and can now be purchased for under $100, so too has 3D printing technology started in the tens of thousands of dollars and is now in the thousand dollar range. Current 3D printing technology takes 2D printing into a third dimension. Many 3D printers are…

Warfa, Abdi-Rizak M.; Roehrig, Gillian H.; Schneider, Jamie L.; Nyachwaya, James – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2014
A significant body of the literature in science education examines students' conceptions of the dissolution of ionic solids in water, often showing that students lack proper understanding of the particulate nature of dissolving materials as well as holding numerous misconceptions about the dissolution process. Consequently, chemical educators have…

Hirmas, Daniel R.; Slocum, Terry; Halfen, Alan F.; White, Travis; Zautner, Eric; Atchley, Paul; Liu, Huan; Johnson, William C.; Egbert, Stephen; McDermott, Dave – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
Recently, the use of stereoscopic three-dimensional (3-D) projection displays has increased in geoscience education. One concern in employing 3-D projection systems in large lecture halls, however, is that the 3-D effect is reported to diminish with increased angle and distance from the stereoscopic display. The goal of this work was to study that…

Horowitz, Seth S.; Schultz, Peter H. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
Data visualization is a core component of every scientific project; however, generation of physical models previously depended on expensive or labor-intensive molding, sculpting, or laser sintering techniques. Physical models have the advantage of providing not only visual but also tactile modes of inspection, thereby allowing easier visual…

Tebbetts, Jo A. – ProQuest LLC, 2013
Hypotheses were developed and tested to measure the cable modems operational metrics response to a reconfiguration of the cable modems' transmitted RF applied to the CMTS. The purpose of this experiment was to compare two groups on the use of non-federal RF spectrum to determine if configuring the cable modems' transmitted RF from 25.2…

Yanez, Maria – ProQuest LLC, 2013
Chronic wounds are becoming more frequent. Foot ulcers affect approximately 10%-15% of patients with diabetes throughout their lifetimes, and by 2025, it is estimated the prevalence of diabetes will be 250 million people in the worldwide. There is increased potential for patients with peripheral neuropathy and peripheral vascular disease to suffer…

Johnson, L.; Adams Becker, S.; Cummins, M.; Estrada V.; Freeman, A.; Ludgate, H. – New Media Consortium, 2013
"The NMC Horizon Report" series is the most visible outcome of the New Media Consortium (NMC) Horizon Project, an ongoing research effort established in 2002 that identifies and describes emerging technologies likely to have a large impact on teaching, learning, research, or creative expression within education around the globe. This…

Huang, Jeff – ProQuest LLC, 2013
In Web search, query and click log data are easy to collect but they fail to capture user behaviors that do not lead to clicks. As search engines reach the limits inherent in click data and are hungry for more data in a competitive environment, mining cursor movements, hovering, and scrolling becomes important. This dissertation investigates how…

Finkelstein, David – School Business Affairs, 2013
Most school districts do not have an ID card policy that everyone knows and follows, yet. many school districts are implementing ID card programs to address concerns about safety, efficiency, and convenience. A well-thought-out ID card program leads to greater security and smoother operations throughout the school and should thus be a priority.…

Colak, S.; Bamac, B.; Colak, T.; Ozbek, A. – Educational Research and Reviews, 2013
There is general consensus in the literature that computer use is often associated with an increased prevalence of hand and wrist disorders. Symptoms may be associated with specific clinical entities such as peripheral nerve entrapment. Motor and sensory nerve conduction velocity and vibration threshold in the hand of computer users have been…

Tomlinson, John M., Jr.; Bailey, Todd M.; Bott, Lewis – Journal of Memory and Language, 2013
Scalar implicatures often incur a processing cost in sentence comprehension tasks. We used a novel mouse-tracking technique in a sentence verification paradigm to test different accounts of this effect. We compared a two-step account, in which people access a basic meaning and then enrich the basic meaning to form the scalar implicature, against a…

Sayadmansour, Alireza; Nassaji, Mehdi – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2013
This paper considers the ethics of educational technology in terms of whether or not selected media and methods are beneficial to the teacher and student, or whether other motives and criteria determine the selection. Communications media have proven themselves to be powerful and efficient tools, used like "dynamite" for getting the most…
