Educating students in a media-saturated culture by John Davies( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The extensive media use common today among children and adolescents requires no special literacy skills. Television, video, film, and popular music can also be viewed or listened to without acquiring new skills. Without purposefully teaching the skills to decode the meanings behind the media, however, we leave students, as well as ourselves, in the tenuous position of allowing media to construct our reality. By recognizing that fostering media literacy in students is both a responsibility and an opportunity for educators, teachers will insist that these much needed skills should find their way into the curriculum. In the middle school tradition, this book examines the research on the mass media's impact on students, using the rubric that educators of young adolescents use in approaching their students--that of their intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development. The chapters of the book are: (1) "Towards an Understanding of the Mass Media and the Meaning of Media Literacy"; (2) "The Omnipotent Media? Understanding Media Effects Theories"; (3) "Coming of Age in a Media Culture," including print media, and rules governing media use; (4) "Mind over Media?" Including the impact of media on learning and how schools are portrayed in the media; (5) "Lessons on Life: The Media and Social Development"; (6) "Growing Up on the Media: Does It Affect Physical Development?"; (7) "Playing to Emotions: The Media and Affective Development"; (8) "Myths Created by the Media"; (9) "In Search of the Hidden Curriculum: the Case for Media Literacy in Schools Today"; and (10) "Dimensions of a Media Literacy Curriculum." An appendix lists organizations researching media and media literacy. Contains a 561-item bibliography. (Hth)
Towards the semantic web : ontology-driven knowledge management by John Davies( Book )

23 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Towards the Semantic Web focuses on the application of Semantic Web technology and ontologies in particular to electronically available information to improve the quality of knowledge management in large and distributed organizations. Covering the key technologies for the next generation of the WWW, this book is a mixture of theory, tools and applications in an important area of WWW research." "Aimed primarily at researchers and developers in the area of WWW-based knowledge management and information retrieval. It will also be a useful reference for students in computer science at the postgraduate level, academic and industrial researchers in the field, business managers who are aiming to increase the corporations' information infrastructure and industrial personnel who are tracking WWW technology developments in order to understand the business implications."--Jacket

Techniques for the investigation of wave turbulence in water wave data by John Davies( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Computer based tools were developed to search water wave data for a collective mode predicted by wave turbulence theory. A low frequency wave, the "swell", can drive the collective mode by compressing and expanding the field of high frequency waves, the "chop". Through non-linear interactions, the chop responds with its own collective stiffness and inertia. This inertia should cause modulations of the chop amplitude to lag in phase behind the forcing from the swell. Two methods are presented for investigating the phase relationships between the chop amplitude and the swell. Method one employs the Fast Fourier Transform to examine directly the power levels at various frequencies. Method two employs digital signal processing to separate the swell and chop frequencies and the Hilbert Transform to compute the instantaneous phase of the swell and instantaneous amplitude of the chop. Various plotting techniques permit the examination of the relationships between the amplitude of the chop and the phase of the swell. The second method provided evidence of the collective mode when applied to data collected in a wave tank experiment described herein
