  1. 1. Seeing Otherwise : Renegotiating Religion and Democracy as Questions for Education

    Author : Lovisa Bergdahl; Sharon Todd; Robert A. Davis; Richard Smith; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; religion; religious pluralism; subjectivity; difference; cosmopolitanism; cosmopolitan education; deliberative democracy; deliberative education; radical democracy; love; antagonism; freedom; heteronomy; dialogue; conflict; seeing; small gestures; Education; Pedagogik; pedagogik; Education;

    Abstract : Rooted in philosophy of education, the overall purpose of this dissertation is to renegotiate the relationship between education, religion, and democracy by placing the religious subject at the centre of this renegotiation. While education is the main focus, the study draws its energy from the fact that tensions around religious beliefs and practices seem to touch upon the very heart of liberal democracy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Discrete and Continuous Shape Writing for Text Entry and Control

    Author : Per Ola Kristensson; Shumin Zhai; William Buxton; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Text entry; Command entry; Human-computer interaction; Input devices; Shorthand; Keyboard; Software keyboard; Pattern recognition; Computer science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : Mobile devices gain increasing computational power and storage capabilities, and there are already mobile phones that can show movies, act as digital music players and offer full-scale web browsing. The bottleneck for information flow is however limited by the inefficient communication channel between the user and the small device. READ MORE

  3. 3. Perspectives on the role of digital tools in students' open-ended physics inquiry

    Author : Elias Euler; Bor Gregorcic; Cedric Linder; Konrad Schönborn; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; digital learning environments; modeling; semi-formalisms; microworlds; social semiotics; embodied cognition; disciplinary-relevant aspects; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik;

    Abstract : In this licentiate thesis, I present detailed case studies of students as they make use of simulated digital learning environments to engage with physics phenomena. In doing so, I reveal the moment-to-moment minutiae of physics students’ open-ended inquiry in the presence of two digital tools, namely the sandbox software Algodoo and the PhET simulation My Solar System (both running on an interactive whiteboard).

    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; huamn robot interaction; industrial robots; intuitive programming; Computer Science; datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Over the past few decades the use of industrial robots has increased the efficiency as well as competitiveness of many companies. Despite this fact, in many cases, robot automation investments are considered to be technically challenging. In addition, for most small and medium sized enterprises (SME) this process is associated with high costs. READ MORE
