  2. Development of Spatial Skills: Linking Software and Physical

    SBC: ChainWave Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This research will explore the use of a virtual polyhedron modeling environment which creates nets, or patterns, for a polyhedron created on the screen, in the teaching of geometry and spatial skills. When the net is printed, cut, folded, and glued together, a 3-dimensional model of the original polyhedron is created. We propose to examine the use of this tool in an instructional setting, to dete ...

  6. Development of a Highly Realistic, Fine-Grained, Low-Cost

    SBC: Knowledge Matters, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Today's extremely powerful, low-cost computer systems offer tremendous potential as learning tools. However, development of high quality educational software, particularly simulations, lags behind. This research will explore the issues in creating highly realistic, very detailed simulations directly targeted for educational purposes. The domain simulated will be a small retail business. This do ...

  9. SYSTEM

    SBC: Scott Instruments Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF INTERACTIVE METHODS TO ENHANCE THE LEARNING PROCESS HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED IN CURRENT LITERATURE AND IS WIDELY ACCEPTED BY EDUCATORS IN THE FIELD. COMPUTERS ALLOW THIS INTERACTIVE METHOD TO PROLIFERATE AND PROVIDE THE MOST EFFECTIVE TOOL AVAILABLE TO MODERN EDUCATORS. VOICE IMPUT TECHNOLOGY CAN FURTHER FACILITATE THIS INTERACTIVE METHOD WHILE ALSO MAKING COMPUTERS MORE ACCESIBLE TO STUDEN ...

  10. EDUCATING IMMIGRANT POPULATIONS IN THE U.

    SBC: Scott Instruments Corp            Topic: N/A

    EDUCATING IMMIGRANT POPULATIONS IN THE U.S. IS A MAJOR CHALLENGE TO OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM. SPEECH RECOGNITION TECHNOLOGY IS NOW CAPABLE OF HELPING IMMIGRANTS, E.G. ASIANSAND HISPANICS, LEARN TO SPEAK AND UNDERSTAND ENGLISH. PHONETIC LEVEL ANALYSIS AND FEEDBACK IS NECESSARY IN THE APPLICATION OF SPEECH RECOGNITION TO ESL. COMMERCIAL SPEECH INPUT DEVICES ARE INCAPABLE OF PROVIDING PHONETIC FEEDBACK ...
