Jaime Vickrey Hybrid Learning Landscape Framework

Today's elementary schools are generally inflexible and uninspiring places for learning that are disconnected from their community and nature. Facilities and teaching methods do not keep up with evolving workforce needs and varying learning styles (Stanbury 2009). Organized sports, limited free time and standardized testing steal the zest out of childhood discovery once felt by those who grew up with a connection to their surroundings, especially nature. Adverse effects are seen as a result. "Nature-deficit disorder describes the human costs of alienation from nature, among them: diminished use of the senses, attention disorders and higher rates of physical and emotional illnesses," (Louv 2008, 36). Children are left to face the world's escalating dilemmas with hindered social and cognitive skills, diseases related to association and disassociation from nature and impaired community relationships. Integrating Learning Landscapes with the Collaborative for High Performance Schools to create a Hybrid Learning Landscape Framework will create a holistic high performance school system that utilizes the interior and exterior school environment for comprehensive learning and play.

Adnan Baig Application of Geographic Information System (GIS) for the study of Tectonic Plates in Pakistan

Master's Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Geography / Earth Science - Meteorology, Aeronomy, Climatology, grade: Excellent, , course: Masters, language: English, abstract: Traditional approaches provide only limited opportunities for general analysis of tectonic structure. However, Geographic Information System provides unique opportunities for solving a wide spectrum of problems, related to analyzing earthquake phenomena. GIS can also provide an effective platform for data assortment, organization, and research with multidirectional data sets. In addition, GIS can also provide an effective solution for integrating different layers of information. In this research an interactive, diversified seismological, geological, and geographical digital database has been developed for Pakistan. Using this GIS database, a better understanding of the tectonics and crustal structure of the region is possible. With the help of this database we have complied new maps of seismological parameters, depth to moho, Pn velocity and Pg velocity. The developed GIS database would help us in natural hazard evaluation, seismic risk assessment, and understanding of earthquake occurrences

The study aimed at estimating runoff and sediment yield by using remote sensing and GIS techniques in catchment. Thematic layers of soil, topographic elevation, slope, land use/land cover (LULC) were generated in GIS platform by using existing soil map, SRTM DEM, and IRS-P4 satellite imagery. The GIS-based soil map was used to develop hydrologic soil group (HSG) map of the study area. HSG and LULC maps were used to generate curve number (CN) map in the GIS environment. Weighted CN value under antecedent moisture condition (AMC) type I, II and III for catchment was computed based on the GIS-based CN map, which were used to compute annual surface runoff. Furthermore, GIS-based maps of six USLE model factors, R, K, L, S, C and P, were generated. Raster maps of the six USLE factors were multiplied to estimate sediment yield on pixel basis.

Mathematical Understanding for Secondary Teaching. A Framework and Classroom-Based Situations

A perennial discussion about teacher development is the optimal content background for teachers. Inrecent years, that discussion has taken center stage in the work of mathematics education researchers,mathematicians, mathematics professional developers, and mathematics education policymakers. Muchof the existing and prior work in this area has been directed toward mathematical knowledge forteaching at the elementary level. The work described in this volume takes a sometimes-neglectedapproach, focusing on the dynamic nature of mathematical understanding rather than on a stabledescription of mathematical knowledge, and on mathematics for secondary teaching rather thanmathematics for teaching at the elementary level.The work reported in Mathematical Understanding for Secondary Teaching: A Framework and Classroom-Based Situations is a practice-basedresponse to the question of what mathematical understandings secondary teachers could productively use in their teaching. For each of more than 50events, our team of almost 50 mathematics educators who were experienced mathematics teachers developed descriptions of the mathematics thatteachers could use-each of those descriptions (consisting of the event and the mathematics related to the event) is what we call a Situation. Wedeveloped our Framework for Mathematical Understanding for Secondary Teaching (MUST) based on an analysis of our entire set of Situations.

Rai Praveen Kumar, Nathawat M.S. Remote Sensing . GIS in Glacier Mapping

This book is an expression of the myriad ways in which the range of Remote Sensing and GIS techniques can be applied to the mapping of glaciers. Glaciers are characterized by the variability of different types of snow and ice deposited in accumulation and ablation areas. Remote Sensing techniques like Digital image processing of satellite data provide an effective solution for categorizing the various materials on glaciers depending upon their spectral reflectance.Visual interpretation in glaciated terrain suffers mainly because of less understanding highly variable material composition and processes operative over glaciers. This sometimes leads to biased interpretation based on little knowledge which leads to wrong interpretation. Inventory of the glaciers is of prime interest to evaluate the nature of changes in glacier dimensions and also to establish relationship between climatic change and dynamics of glaciers. As glaciological studies in high altitude terrains are very difficult by conventional methods. Remote Sensing data with GIS techniques is used to mapping and monitoring of permanent snowfields and glacier covered area.

Helen Omole Embedding cultural factors into the HFACS framework

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2016 in the subject Cultural Studies - Miscellaneous, , language: English, abstract: This paper integrates the cultural framework into the existing Human Factors Analysis Classification System (HFACS) framework. The cultural framework explores the contributory factors of each part of the system from a cultural perspective. The HFACS framework is used as a tool to establish the gaps and ultimately how the cultural components are integrated into the framework. The paper provides similar expression in the new integrated framework which will be symmetrical to the aim. Ultimately, the integration of the cultural and HFACS-SYS framework is to produce an additional diagnostic tool to the existing HFACS framework.The previous analyses show that on some highly critical cultural factors, factors which have played a major part in previous accidents is not currently detected. The most significant criterion is that the new framework will provide the same definitions and philosophy used by the two frameworks, if they are used singly.Results: The paper undertook the following: (a) provided a short description of the cultural and HFACS-SYS frameworks and their key relationship; (b) explored the integration process, and (c) presented the combined framework. Conclusion: The paper provides further insights previously developed cultural framework, blend them with HFACS-SYS to address this shortfall and improve on a tool which is widely used for acciden...

Denis Musinguzi From Ominous Hostility to Restored Relationships

The study interrogates the persistence of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) conflict that ravaged Northern Uganda for over two decades, and the relevance of the integrated framework for peacebuilding (John-Paul Lederach, 1997) in transforming conflict relationships into peaceful relationships. The actors and approaches model and the timeframe dimension under the integrated framework are adopted as theoretical constructs for guiding the analysis. It is evident in literature and field findings that a combination of historical, internal and external factors conspired to fuel the conflict. The integrated framework offers overarching lenses for transforming the conflict and contributing to sustainable peace. To be more effective, it is vital to overcome factors that affected the peace processes and which underpin the limitation of the framework.

Carsten Gottschlich Oracle 10g Rules Manager - Evaluation of the Oracle 10g Rules Manager for a Domain Node Architecture in the Semantic Web ECA Framework

A major challenge of the nascent Semantic Web is the multitude of data formats, languages, schemas and ontologies. "A General Framework for Evolution and Reactivity in the Semantic Web" was designed for bridging the gap torn apart by the heterogeneity. This framework is based on Event-Condition-Action (ECA) rules. With the release of version 10g Oracle has enhanced its database software by adding a Rules Manager package that allows the user to define and manage ECA rules. In this book, the features of the Oracle Rules Manager are examined and it is analysed how and to what extent the Rules Manager can function as a domain node in the ECA Framework for the Semantic Web.

Kwame A. Ninsin Issues in Ghana.s Electoral Politics

Ghana attained independence in 1957. From 1992, when a new constitution came into force and established a new – democratic – framework for governing the country, elections have been organized every four years to choose the governing elites. The essays in this volume are about those elections because elections give meaning to the role of citizens in democratic governance. The chapters depart from the study of formal structures by which the electorate choose their representatives. They evaluate the institutional forms that representation take in the Ghanaian context, and study elections outside the specific institutional forms that according to democratic theory are necessary for arriving at the nature of the relationships that are formed between the voters and their representatives and the nature and quality of their contribution to the democratic process.

Lars Merle, Tobias Schachner Designing a new industry award for service excellence competition in retailing

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: This thesis resolves the need for an industry award for service excellence in retailing, based on a comprehensive framework to foster management quality. A service excellence framework is developed and the design for a new service excellence award is proposed. The proposed framework is based on the Industrial Excellence Award. In addition to the original four fundamental processes a fifth component is introduced: the customer. To complete the framework, the seven components of management quality known from the IEA are adopted. This framework is the structure for the self-assessment questionnaire that will be the core of the new „Best Retailer” service excellence award. Through an extensive literature review, success factors and empirically tested items for questionnaires were identified and assigned to the corresponding sections in the questionnaire. The result is a collection of questions that - if appropriately considered by management – can help introducing service excellence in the retailing industry. The modus operandi of a possible future award competition is suggested to stay close the example of the IEA in order to leverage the existing brand. This should help to popularize the new award, to create outstanding showcases quickly, and to disseminate excellent management quality in the industry.

Examining Listening: Research and Practice in Assessing Second Language Listening

This volume examines the nature of second language listening proficiency and how it can be assessed. The book highlights the need for test developers to provide a clear explication of the ability constructs which underpin the tests they offer in the public domain. This is increasingly necessary if claims about the validity of test score interpretation and use are to be supported both logically and with empirical evidence. It operationalises a comprehensive test validation framework which adopts a socio-cognitive perspective. The framework embraces six core components, examining and then analysing Cambridge ESOL listening tasks from the following perspectives: Test Taker; Cognitive Validity; Context Validity; Scoring Validity; Criterion-related Validity; and Consequential Validity.

Following the successful publication of the 1st edition in 2009, the 2nd edition maintains its aim to provide an application-driven package of essential techniques in image processing and GIS, together with case studies for demonstration and guidance in remote sensing applications. The book therefore has a “3 in 1” structure which pinpoints the intersection between these three individual disciplines and successfully draws them together in a balanced and comprehensive manner. The book conveys in-depth knowledge of image processing and GIS techniques in an accessible and comprehensive manner, with clear explanations and conceptual illustrations used throughout to enhance student learning. The understanding of key concepts is always emphasised with minimal assumption of prior mathematical experience. The book is heavily based on the authors’ own research. Many of the author-designed image processing techniques are popular around the world. For instance, the SFIM technique has long been adopted by ASTRIUM for mass-production of their standard “Pan-sharpen” imagery data. The new edition also includes a completely new chapter on subpixel technology and new case studies, based on their recent research.

K.A.M. Perera, Lasantha Manawadu Urban Spatial Structure Analysis

Uncontrolled rapid urban growth due to built-up area expansion over the last few decades has created critical problems to urban planners. Therefore, it is worth to identify spatial distribution pattern of built-up area in a town. Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographical Information System (GIS) provide a great potential for urban data collection & spatial analysis and not much academic literature exists on how to best utilize these technologies for urban studies. Traditional approaches to data collection and analysis no longer adequate to provide updated information for urban planners. This book, therefore, introduces alternative techniques for data collection, updating, detection of built-up area change and unauthorised constructions, identifying urban spatial distribution pattern considering built-up area density. New GIS spatial analysis techniques such as weighted mean centre and spatial autocorrelation tools introduced. These analysis techniques should help to shed light on the field of urban planning, and should be especially useful to students and professionals in urban planning or anyone else who may be considering utilizing RS and GIS for urban spatial structure analysis.
