0.0 stars

This is the output of Etwinning Project Agents of Change: Young Voices for the Environment!
The challenge is to integrate environmental education concepts into all aspects of quality education by considering three domains: the environment, education and society. Students will need basic knowledge from the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities to understand the principles of sustainable development. Reorienting the existing learning environments of schools towards eco-friendly schools is the next innovative and relevant step towards enhanced quality education.
While young people are among the most vulnerable to climate change, they need not be considered passive or helpless victims. Through education, projects and action, young people can contribute to every aspect of climate change policymaking, mitigation and adaptation. Youth are powerful agents of change.
In this project we are aiming to bring together school students from across different European countries (to promote mutual understanding, increase leadership skills, and prepare them to make a difference.

The Alan Walks Wales Dataset: Quantified self and open data
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

This case study describes the educational use of an open dataset collected as part of a thousand mile research walk. The content connects to many hot topics including quantified self, privacy, biosensing, mobility and the digital divide, so has an immediate interest to students. It includes inter-linkable qualitative and quantitative data, in a variety of specialist and general formats, so offers a variety of technical challenges including visualisation and data mining as well. Finally, it is raw data with all the glitches, gaps and problems attached to this.

The case study draws on experience in two educational settings: the first with a group of computer science and interaction design masters students in class-based discussions run by the first author; the second a computer science bachelor's project supervised by the second author.

Alzheimer's Disease: Progressively Forgetting
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

We all forget where we kept that box of firecrackers, or the bill that needs to be paid. But there is a more serious loss of memory that progressively begins to disrupt one's normal day-to-day functions. Alzheimer's disease is the commonest form of dementia, a disease of old age, and becomes increasingly frequent with every passing decade after 60 years.

Over the age of 80, more than 20% of people have mild dementia. Currently, over 3 million people suffer from dementia in India alone. In about 20 years time, the numbers are expected to double, thanks to a greater life-span and to better identification of patients in large areas of our country.

Rating
0.0 stars

Antarctic Expedition involves a multi-issue negotiation between two university professors over resources for a proposed joint expedition to the Antarctic. Antarctic Expedition encompasses key negotiation concepts such as the best alternative to a negotiated agreement (BATNA), the worst alternative to a negotiated agreement (WATNA) and the zone of possible agreement (ZOPA). Students are also invited to examine the role of principled negotiation, and the applicability of standards and criteria. This simulation has been designed for third level students studying negotiation. Whilst it can be used at an introductory level, it is suggested that it is most appropriate for students who have already been introduced to fundamental negotiation concepts.Teaching Notes include General Instructions, Confidential Instructions for Andy Balfe and Confidential Instructions for Gerry Hopkins.
