Ritz, John M. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
Radar is a technology that can be used to detect distant objects not visible to the human eye. A predecessor of radar, called the telemobiloscope, was first used to detect ships in the fog in 1904 off the German coast. Many scientists have worked on the development and refinement of radar (Hertz with electromagnetic waves; Popov with determining…

Courtney, Elya; Morris, Collin; Courtney, Michael – Physics Teacher, 2018
Undergraduate lab design balances several factors: 1) simple experiments connected with learning objectives, 2) experiments sufficiently accurate for comparisons between theory and measurements without gaps when students ascribe discrepancies to confounding factors (imperfect simplifying assumptions, measurement uncertainties, and "human…

Seide, Svenja E.; Jensen, Katrin; Kieser, Meinhard – Research Synthesis Methods, 2021
Traditional visualization in meta-analysis uses forest plots to illustrate the combined treatment effect, along with the respective results from primary trials. While the purpose of visualization is clear in the pairwise setting, additional treatments broaden the focus and extend the results to be illustrated in network meta-analysis. The…

Nuryantini, Ade Yeti; Nuryadin, Bebeh Wahid – Physics Education, 2020
The vector of aircraft motion and analysis using FlightRadar24 and Tracker motion analysis has been investigated and studied. The straight, turning and circular aircraft motion were recorded from www.flightradar24.com using a commercial desktop video recording. Then, the video of the aircraft motion was analyzed using Tracker 5.1.1 to determine…

Talukdar, Kaushik; Harrison, Craig; McGuigan, Mike – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2021
The radar gun is a valid and practically feasible tool to measure sprinting speed and kinetics among athletes. However, its reliability in youth populations, particularly females, is unknown. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the intraday and inter-day reliability of sprinting kinetics using a radar gun to measure force ("Fo"),…

National Council on Disability, 2018
National Council on Disability's (NCD) study found that students with disabilities are not "on the radar" of colleges in their sexual assault prevention efforts, policies, or procedures for response and support after an assault. This includes the absence of procedures to communicate with victims who are Deaf or hard of hearing and…

Mesmer, Heidi Anne; Rose-McCully, M. M. – Reading Teacher, 2018
Close reading requires students to unpack the implicit relationships within and across sentences. The authors discuss three potential barriers to comprehension embedded within text that they have seen with their own students and with the teachers they have worked with: anaphoric relationships, connectives, and appositives. The authors begin each…

Paulson, Eric J. – Journal of Developmental Education, 2013
This is the second iteration of the Developmental Education Radar Screen project. As with the first iteration, in 2011, the author uses a "radar screen" metaphor to discuss trends in developmental education based on responses to a series of topics and categories provided by a group of leaders in the educational field. The purpose of this…

Pike, Dawn; Siminson, Nicola Jane – New Review of Academic Librarianship, 2017
This article discusses how RADAR, the institutional repository (IR) at the Glasgow School of Art (GSA), has been modified to house an Annual Research Planning (ARP) template. A case study on the implementation of this research planning tool will outline the role that a repository and its staff can play in supporting individuals, enhancing…

Cao, Qing; Yeary, M. B.; Zhang, Guifu – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2012
The U.S. weather radar network is currently being upgraded with dual-polarization capability. Weather radar polarimetry is an interdisciplinary area of engineering and meteorology. This paper presents efficient ways to learn weather radar polarimetry through several basic and practical topics. These topics include: 1) hydrometeor scattering model…

Fashanu, Christina; Wood, Elizabeth; Payne, Mark – English in Education, 2020
The operant "one nation -- one language" model in Western culture has resulted in linguistic hegemony being almost universally presented as an uncontentious reality. This article accepts Foucault's challenge to deconstruct this officially sanctioned "truth" by looking at how the educational system in England legitimises the…

Gillette, Brandon; Leinmiller-Renick, Kelsey; Foga, Steve – Science Teacher, 2013
Understanding the behavior of ice sheets (thick, continent-size ice masses) and glaciers (smaller, flowing masses of ice) is increasingly important as our climate changes, particularly in the Polar Regions. This article describes two lessons, based on the 5E (engage, explore, explain, elaborate, and evaluate) model, that help students practice…

Tulowitzki, Pierre; Huber, Stephan Gerhard; Schwander, Marius – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2017
This proposal reports on the use of facilitators to help develop networked learning communities. The findings presented herein are derived from a five-year study (2013-2018) designed to ascertain how these collaborative networks function and evolve as well as to assess their possible impact on the educational contexts they are located in.…
