One of these websites is maintained by the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse (ENC) for Mathematics and
Science Education.5 The ENC is a centralized site that gathers educational materials and makes them available
from its own computers. Content specialists find and acquire the rights to materials, write abstracts for the
resources on the site, enter data, and maintain the site catalog—a resource-intensive process that ensures quality
while slowing somewhat the provision of resources. A search engine allows users to find the materials in which
they are interested.

The Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Social
Sciences are jointly sponsoring a workshop on ‘Globalization and Education’
which will take place November 16-17, 2005. The focus of the workshop will
be to find an educational project for an increasingly globalized world, based
on our current bioanthropologic knowledge of the human being within the
context of the diversity and interdependence of cultures, the interculturality
and universality of ethical values, the role of communication technologies and
the new migration patterns....
A BBS (Bulletin Board System) Forum for the DE2 board has been created at the address shown
below. This Forum is meant to serve as a repository for information about the DE2 board, and to
provide a resource through which users can ask questions, and share design examples.
dvances in technology are increasingly impacting the way in which curriculum is delivered and assessed. The emergence of the Internet has offered learners a new instructional delivery system that connects them with educational resources.
Estuarine Research, Monitoring, and Resource Protection
is principally designed as
a reference volume for estuarine and watershed scientists, resource managers, decision
makers, and other professionals who deal with coastal zone issues. Information
contained in this volume will be useful to individuals conducting either basic or
applied research on estuaries. It will also be valuable to administrators engaged in
coastal resource management programs.
The mathematics students need to learn today is not the same mathematics that
their parents and grandparents needed to learn. When today's students become
adults, they will face new demands for mathematical proficiency that school
mathematics should attempt to anticipate. Moreover, mathematics is a realm no
longer restricted to a select few. All young Americans must learn to think
mathematically, and they must think mathematically to learn.
The Social Return to Education Since model (1) excludes school resources, the term x jγ potentially captures both
conventional peer group effects and other indirect effects associated with the family
background characteristics of students at school j . For example, wealthy parents may be
more likely to volunteer in their childrens schools, or to vote for increased tax rates to
The first in a series of triennial reviews, this study gives a comprehensive assessment of human resource and development trends in South Africa. Along with its companion web-based data warehouse, it is an invaluable, user-friendly resource for policy-makers, planners, managers and educators at both national and institutional levels.
Purpose The thesis clarifies fundamental theoretical matters and the real situation of the education and training to the development of high-quality human resources; recommends a number of directions and solutions to bring into full play the role of education and training in the development of high-quality human resources in Vietnam at present.
This second edition of Internet Resources for Nurses is expanded
in scope and depth; it includes more content headings and additional
features. Since the publication of the first edition in 2000,
there has been a substantial increase in the information available to
nurses through the Internet. We can expect that this trend will continue
and that the number, depth, and scope of health care Web sites will
increase dramatically as health care organizations more fully embrace
the information resources available.

One of the best ways to learn about the markets and trading is to have a mentor, an experienced person who knows the ropes thoroughly and is willing to pass along his or her knowledge to you personally. As a reporter for a wire service on every major exchange floor at one time or another, Jim Wyckoff had access to some of the best and brightest people in the business – not just one mentor but many mentors.
The research Objectives: From the theoretical analysis and practical about management activities of the vocational education to create, the human resource for the provinces of Binh Duong, the solution proposed management activities for high school students of Binh Duong province.
It is important to note that the problem is not just a lack of proficiency among American students; there is also a lack of interest in STEM fields among many students. Recent evidence suggests that many of the most proficient students, including minority students and women, have been gravitating away from science and engineering toward other professions. Even as the United States focuses on low-performing students, we must devote considerable attention and resources to all of our most high-achieving students
from across all groups....
There are many ways to improve the lives of people with mental disorders. One important way
is through policies, plans and programmes that lead to better services. To implement such
policies and plans, one needs good legislation–that is, laws that place the policies and plans in
the context of internationally accepted human rights standards and good practices. This
Resource Book aims to assist countries in drafting, adopting and implementing such legislation.
In 2004,the HSRC ’s research programme on Human Resource Development launched the Working Partnerships Series to explore the extent to which the networked practices that are believed to characterise the knowledge economy have indeed begun to penetrate South African higher education and industry.
The analysis shows how, in the South African context, contradiction and incoherence characterise the interactions between institutions in each of these three institutional subsystems. The author argues that policy co-ordination and implementation need to be 'joined up' to achieve a more effective interlocking of institutions - such as, for example, the improved dovetailing within the youth labour market of processes of acquiring a Grade 12 education and acquiring a job.
It also outlines analytic developments that could help convert raw data into information useful for decisionmakers. The research reported here was sponsored by the Air Education and Training Command (AETC/CV) and HQ Air Force Deputy Chief of Staff, Personnel (AF/DP) and conducted within the Manpower, Personnel, and Training Program of RAND Project AIR FORCE (PAF) at the RAND Corporation. Earlier, PAF explored the requirements of a technical training schoolhouse model to address pipeline capacity.
More local control of education decisionmaking is a core element of today's education governance reform efforts. This research explores the federal, state, and local mechanisms by which public education is supported in California and examines how those resources are used by local school districts.......
The terms learning outcomes, or outcomes-based education, are often used synonymously
with CBE. However, “competencies” often carries with it a broader, more conceptual
connotation of what the learner is able to do as a result of the education whereas “outcomes” is
often used in reference to the performance on exams and other metrics that document the
learning that has taken place..
“Learning objective” is another term that has some overlap with “competency.
