Playing to Learn with Reacting to the Past

Author: C. Edward Watson
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783319617473
Release Date: 2017-10-03
Genre: Education

This book provides classroom practice and research studies that verify Reacting to the Past (RTTP)—a student-centered, active learning pedagogy that provides college students and faculty unique teaching and learning opportunities—as a high impact practice for student learning and engagement. The overarching objective of this book is to collect practices and evidence from multiple disciplines and institution types regarding the efficacy of RTTP in higher education classroom settings. At its core, RTTP is a game-based pedagogy with published games on some of the most conflicted moments of human history. While RTTP is deeply grounded in theory and literature that suggests its approaches can be impactful, deep and broad examinations of RTTP pedagogies in a range of course settings have not been extensively performed until now. This book provides guidance and an evidence-base on which to build RTTP practices.

Traffic Management

Author: Simon Cohen
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9781119307808
Release Date: 2016-06-15
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Transport systems are facing an impossible dilemma: satisfy an increasing demand for mobility of people and goods, while decreasing their fossil-energy requirements and preserving the environment. Additionally, transport has an opportunity to evolve in a changing world, with new services, technologies but also new requirements (fast delivery, reliability, improved accessibility). The subject of traffic is organized into two separate but complementary volumes: Volume 3 on Traffic Management and Volume 4 on Traffic Safety. Traffic Management, Volume 3 of the ‘Research for Innovative Transports’ Set, presents a collection of updated papers from the TRA 2014 Conference, highlighting the diversity of research in this field. Theoretical chapters and practical case studies address topics such as cooperative systems, the global approach in modeling, road and railway traffic management, information systems and impact assessment.

Building Science Technology and Innovation Capacity in Rwanda

Author: Alfred J. Watkins
Publisher: World Bank Publications
ISBN: 9780821373576
Release Date: 2008
Genre: Education

Even a subsistence agricultural economy such as Rwanda needs to develop science, technology and innovation (STI) capacity if it hopes to solve such everyday, practical problems as providing energy and clean drinking water to rural villages, and competing in the global economy by producing and selling higher value goods and services. This book provides new insights into the capacity building process and shows that STI capacity building is not a luxury activity suitable primarily for wealthy countries but an absolute necessity for poor countries that hope to become richer.

Options for Managing and Financing Rural Transport Infrastructure

Author: Christina Malmberg Calvo
Publisher: World Bank Publications
ISBN: 0821342487
Release Date: 1998-01-01
Genre: Business & Economics

World Bank Technical Paper No. 409. In developing and transition economies, 60 to 80 percent of all passenger and freight transport moves by road-the main form of access for most rural communities. Yet most of the 11 million kilometers of roads in these economies are badly maintained and poorly managed. This paper discusses one of the most effective ways to promote sound policies for managing and financing road networks--commercialization. It discusses the emerging central concept of bringing roads into the marketplace, putting them on a fee-for-service basis, and managing them like a business.

Web Mining Die Fallstudie Swarovski

Author: Alexander Linder
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 382442195X
Release Date: 2005-04-28
Genre: Business & Economics

Alexander Linder zeigt, dass erfolgreiches, aussagekräftiges Web Mining nicht immer auf multivariaten Analysemethoden beruht. Durch die Erkenntnisse deskriptiver Statistiken, angereichert mit Zusatzinformationen, lassen sich die zentralen Fragen beantworten: Wer ist der Kunde und was will er? Er entwickelt Lösungsansätze zum Umgang mit Datenschutzaspekten und technischen Restriktionen des Internets und zeigt, welches Potenzial multivariate Verfahren für das Web Mining bieten und dass sich die klassische lineare Regressionsanalyse hierfür nicht eignet.
