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…

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"),…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Davids, Nuraan – Ethics and Education, 2022
As academics, we do not only produce and reproduce knowledge; we also produce our citizenship as a social and agonistic space. There are nuances embedded within academic citizenship -- unqualifiable, but compelling in their production and reproduction of power dynamics, bringing into disrepute notions of academic citizenship as a homogenous or…

Barnard, Marie; Dehon, Erin; Compretta, Caroline; Notebaert, Andrew; Sparkmon, Wesley; Meyer, Edgar; Stray, Stephen; Taylor, Juanyce; Sullivan, Donna; Rockhold, Robin – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2020
Many professional development programs aim to improve student outcomes by enhancing teacher competencies. Effective evaluation of these programs requires a clear delineation of the competencies to be gained. A competency model was developed to evaluate the impact of a teacher professional program that aimed to improve teachers' ability to…

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…

Lukac, Zeljko; Kastelan, Ivan; Vranjes, Mario; Todorovic, Branislav M. – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2021
Education of electronics engineers is one of the most dynamic types of education due to the new technologies that are rapidly being introduced into the field. Therefore, it is necessary to use modern teaching and laboratory methods that accompany the development of new technologies. When it comes to the automotive industry, a modern vehicle must…

Kagan, David; Nathan, Alan M. – Physics Teacher, 2017
Baseball's flirtation with technology began in 2005 when PITCHf/x® by Sportvision started to be installed in major league ballparks. Every stadium had the system operational by 2007. Since then, the trajectories of over six million pitches have been measured to within about half an inch using three 60-Hz video cameras to track the position of the…

Cheung, Rebecca; Flores, Chuck; Sablo-Sutton, Soraya – Educational Leadership and Administration: Teaching and Program Development, 2019
Social justice school leaders can amplify the voices and activism of marginalized students by shifting from hierarchical relationships to working as allies. An ally is commonly defined as a person who is associated with another or others for some common cause or purpose. By transferring Kendall's (2013) concept of "allyship" from racial…

Feldman, Roger – Social Indicators Research, 2013
The use of "radar charts" is an increasingly popular way to present spatial data in a visually interesting format. Some authors recommend using "filled radar charts" to compare the performance of observational units. Filled radar charts are not appropriate for such comparisons because the size of the area within the polygon is not invariant to the…
