Computers and learning : helping children acquire thinking skills by Jean D. M Underwood( Book )

Learning and the e-generation by Jean D. M Underwood( Book )

17 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Learning and the E-Generation examines the impact of new and emerging digital technologies-from computers and tablets to social media and video games - on learners in formal and informal settings. Written by two experts in the field, it draws on the latest research and practice from psychology, neuroscience, and education to address the risks and benefits of twenty-first century digital technology on children and young adults. The authors assess the psychological factors at play, including social, cognitive, and behavioural characteristics that are influenced by exposure to technology. The chapters cover topics such as theories and styles of learning, technology's effect of verbal and written communication e-readers and tablets as teaching tools, digital literacy, social networking in educational contexts, and academic dishonesty and the internet. Filled with the latest insights on the future of learning, this is an important look at the potential of technology to make the learning process more authentic and engaging, as well as the pitfalls and obstacles which can prevent this from happening effectively. --Book Jacket

Self-regulated learning in technology enhanced learning environments : a European perspective by Roberto Carneiro( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and Danish and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Self-regulated learning (SRL) subsumes key aspects of the learning process, such as cognitive strategies, metacognition and motivation, in one coherent construct. Central to this construct are the autonomy and responsibility of students to take charge of their own learning. Skills for self-regulation can be encouraged both directly and indirectly through a range of learning activities. In this book we look specifically at the ways in which technology enhanced learning environments (TELEs) have been used to support self-regulation. The book provides an overview of recent studies on SRL in TELEs in Europe {u2013} a perspective which is new and has not been articulated hitherto. It addresses conceptual and methodological questions as well as practices in technology enhanced learning. While the focus is on European studies, we are aware that much of the groundwork in the field of SRL has emanated from the United States. The book is divided into three parts: (A) Foundations of SRL in TELEs, (B) Empirical studies on SRL in TELEs and (C) SRL in TELEs: perspectives on future developments. The book presents a rich resource of information for researchers and educators at all levels who are interested in supporting the acquisition of SRL through TELEs

Learning through digital technologies by Jean D. M Underwood( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph issue focuses on the understanding that psychological theories and processes bring to the role of digital technologies in a range of formal and informal learning situations. It considers how cultural psychology can contribute to learning sciences and links both the use of computers as cognitive tools and the valuable role of interaction for learning. The concept of interaction is central to the research presented - between individuals, groups and technology - and evidence is provided of the role of dialogical and social processes needed for learning and conceptual development. The issue also concentrates on technology stimulated social interaction but considers the value of such interaction as a causal process in the development of teachers' pedagogic skills. The positive aspects of technology for learning is tempered by evidence of powerful learning events in the form of epistemic games are being ignored by educational policy makers. It is argued that a paradigm shift is needed in the way in which we think about education in the global information era. The monograph issue ends with presented evidence from a range of psychological research on the costs and benefits of involving digital technologies in education. [Web]

Hydrogen Cracking During Service of High Strength Steel Cannon Components( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An investigation of environmental cracking during service of high strength steel cannon components is described. Two cases of cracking occurred in similar prototypes of an advanced cannon over a two-year period. The materials, components configurations, applied and residual stresses, environmental conditions, and the resulting cracking behaviors and SEM fracture surface characteristics are outlined. Laboratory hydrogen cracking tests of the cannon materials, finite element stress analysis, and stress intensity factor calculations were used to model the hydrogen cracking. The first cracking incident involved cracks up to 21-mm long near a pressure seal in an 1160 MPa yield strength ASTM A723 forged steel cannon tube, following five firing cycles. The second incident involved 50-mm long cracks that had grown after thirty firing cycles near the seal between two adjoining cannon components, one made from A723 and one from 1280 MPa yield strength PH 13-8 Mo stainless steel. The cause of cracking, given the presence of hydrogen-laden propellant products and susceptible high strength steels, was the sustained tensile stresses arising from assembly preloads required to maintain pressure seals between cannon components. Recommended preventative measures include reducing the strength level of the existing martensite steels, changing to austenitic nickel-iron base alloys, and redesign to lower the level of sustained tensile stress concentrations in areas subjected to propellant environments
Modification of ASTM Standard E1681 on Environmental Cracking to Include Bolt-Load Specimen Testing( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Benet Laboratories experience with environmental cracking of cannon components has been combined with the technical expertise of various participants at ASTM technical meetings and symposia to develop a modification to ASTM Standard E1681. 'Test Method for Determining a Threshold Stress Intensity Factor for Environment Assisted Cracking of Metallic Materials Under Constant Load.' A bolt-loaded compact specimen has been added to the standard to allow constant displacement bolt-load tests of environmental cracking threshold. Recent investigations of environmental cracking in two cannon systems are briefly summarized including cracking in acids used in the electroplating process and cracking due to cannon propellant gases. The modified draft of ASTM Standard E1681 is presented, including the additions to test procedure, apparatus, and stress intensity factor expressions required to perform bolt-load tests of environmental cracking threshold
Thermochemical Model of Hydrogen Cracking at Heat-Affected Cannon Bore Surfaces( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Two examples of hydrogen cracking in the heat-affected region of fired cannons are given, including metallographic evidence of damage at various depths near the bore surface. The depth of steel transformation due to firing is used to verify near-bore temperature distributions and transient and residual stress distributions calculated using classic one-dimensional heat flow analysis. Predicted depths of thermal damage and hydrogen cracks compare well with observed depths for different crack orientations and firing temperatures. Laboratory fracture mechanics tests using bolt-load compact specimens are described, including crack growth and blunt-notched tests in acid-hydrogen environments. The utility of the thermal and fracture mechanics analyses and the laboratory fracture mechanics tests used with cannons are discussed for weld applications
