In this study, we combine Nylon 6 nanomembranes with tulle and organza fashion fabrics to construct a full-scale, flying kite. For the first time, this work demonstrates the processing of electrospun nanofabrics using laser cut and ultrasonic technologies. The composite fabrics were analysed for their morphological and mechanical properties. The fracture strain of the nanomembrane–tulle composites increased 58–171% compared to the control samples due to nanofibre entanglements on the open weave structure of tulle. The ultrasonic sewn fabric regions endured 169% greater applied stress with the addition of the organza fabric and the seaming process compared to the nanomembrane–tulle composite. [less ▲]

Most research studies show that initial number knowledge constitutes the basis for understanding several major principles of mathematics. Moreover, early number competencies are considered as strong predictors of mathematics outcomes at the end of the first grade and even later on (Jordan, Kaplan, Ramineni & Locuniak, 2009). In preschool, the development of these competencies should obviously not give rise to formal learning but is developed through significant activities. However, while everyday situations offer significant contexts, they are still not sufficient to develop the basic number competencies necessary for first grade children (Cannon & Ginsburg, 2008). Adults have to create opportunities to learn mathematical competencies. Mathematical games can meet this requirement. The MathPlay project aims to develop early number competencies through games implemented in school and/or at home. According to the literature, early number competencies consist in counting, conservation ability, magnitude comparison, and (de)composition of numbers. To develop these competencies, we decided to adapt 8 well-known family games. To evaluate the effect of this play-based approach on the development of number competencies, an instrument was created and validated. A quasi-experimental research design (pre/post-test) was implemented in four countries: Luxembourg, Belgium, France and Switzerland. Seven hundred and twenty-five children from all these countries participated in this study. They were divided into one control group and one experimental group with two treatment conditions, X1 (with games at school), and X2 (with games both at school and at home). The post-test was administrated at two moments: just after the intervention and eight weeks later. Data is currently being analysed. This communication will present the first outcomes and will answer our research question: what is the immediate and deferred effect of this play-based approach (X1-X2) on students’ number competencies?

The human phenotype is a result of the interactions of environmental factors with genetic ones. Some environmental factors such as the human gut microbiota composition and the related metabolic functions are known to impact human health and were put in correlation with the development of different diseases. Most importantly, disentangling the metabolic role played by these factors is crucial to understanding the pathogenesis of complex and multifactorial diseases, such as Parkinson’s Disease. Microbial community sequencing became the standard investigation technique to highlight emerging microbial patterns associated with different health states. However, even if highly informative, such technique alone is only able to provide limited information on possible functions associated with specific microbial communities composition. The integration of a systems biology computational modeling approach termed constraint-based modeling with sequencing data (whole genome sequencing, and 16S rRNA gene sequencing), together with the deployment of advanced statistical techniques (machine learning), helps to elucidate the metabolic role played by these environmental factors and the underlying mechanisms. The first goal of this PhD thesis was the development and deployment of specific methods for the integration of microbial abundance data (coming from microbial community sequencing) into constraint-based modeling, and the analysis of the consequent produced data. The result was the implementation of a new automated pipeline, connecting all these different methods, through which the study of the metabolism of different gut microbial communities was enabled. Second, I investigated possible microbial differences between a cohort a Parkinson’s disease patients and controls. I discovered microbial and metabolic changes in Parkinson’s disease patients and their relative dependence on several physiological covariates, therefore exposing possible mechanisms of pathogenesis of the disease.Overall, the work presented in this thesis represents method development for the investigation of before unexplored functional metabolic consequences associated with microbial changes of the human gut microbiota with a focus on specific complex diseases such as Parkinson’s disease. The consequently formulated hypothesis could be experimentally validated and could represent a starting point to envision possible clinical interventions. [less ▲]

In this article we argue that the aims and objectives of foreign language teaching can and should be combined with those of education for citizenship. We call this intercultural citizenship, which others refer to as world, global or cosmopolitan citizenship. We begin by explaining the purposes of foreign language teaching and then introduce the notion of criticality in education systems. We also analyse the notion of education for citizenship and focus upon its potential for encouraging learners to identify with groups of people taking action beyond the limits of the state and its boundaries. Finally, we illustrate intercultural citizenship in practice. [less ▲]

This is the third book in the Pestalozzi series. The first, Teacher education for change, dealt with the underlying philosophy of the Pestalozzi Programme and its approach to education in general and teacher education in particular. The second Intercultural competence for all, looked at the various implications of promoting the development of intercultural competence as a main concern of mainstream education. This work takes a step further towards the full integration of intercultural competences as a key element within the education system. It aims at offering an educational rationale and conceptual framework for the development of intercultural competence, as well as a clear description of its constitutive elements to be developed in and through education.

Mobile-assisted language learning and iPads in particular, offer opportunities for enhanced language learning. Many MALL studies including studying iPads have focused on collaboration but few on language learning as such. For collaboration to lead to learning, particular conditions need to be met, among these those relating to the task. A goal-oriented task such as collaborative storytelling, can language learning. Opportunities where children use exploratory talk similarly have been shown to stimulate learning. The present qualitative longitudinal study examines, first, the process of collaboration and learning of primary school children in Luxembourg who collaboratively produce oral texts on the iPad app iTEO, and second, the role and function of the tool within this process. Developed in trilingual Luxembourg to further language learning, iTEO allows users to record and edit oral texts. The automatic playback materialises the language and allows for reflection. The study’s multi-method approach includes observations, video-recordings, interviews and the collection of audio and visual material. Findings show that the children’s talk includes features of exploratory and instructional talk and that iTEO is used in a variety of functions. The findings contribute to our understanding of the ways in which children develop language skills in autonomous, collaborative and computer-assisted activities. [less ▲]
