Two experiments were conducted to examine the effects of having people carry out a sequence of actions in an environment on the spatial representation of the environment. The actions were linked by a common theme (e.g., writing a letter). In Experiment 1, the spatial memory test consisted of an implicit and an explicit distance estimation task. Participants who carried out a sequence of script-based actions inside a room showed poor spatial knowledge for this particular room (as compared to a control room or control participants) in disregarding actual distances in their estimations. This deficit could be due to a loss of or to a poorer encoding of spatial information. The results of Experiment 2, however, suggest that the effects observed in Experiment 1 seem to depend on the spatial task used. With a positioning task at testing, we could not find any evidence that could be attributed to an action-based change of a spatial mental representation. In sum, the general hypothesis of action-based influences on mental spatial representations was not corroborated by convincing data. [less ▲]

The training of future physical education (PE) teachers has changed over the years. Different demands adapted to new social realities in schools and new curricula require the addition and/or cancellation of contents at the universities and training colleges. While many school and university curricular programs worldwide already include the topic of inclusive PE, Germany has for a long time segregated pupils according to their intellectual capacities and not fully adapted the national curricula for PE at schools yet. This paper outlines the development and status quo of PE teacher training in Germany. Ministerial demands and orders as well as the curricula of schools, universities and teachers’ training colleges are analyzed to determine whether and/or how far inclusive PE is incorporated. The aim of this study is not to give a complete national overview of the implementation of inclusive PE in teacher training. However, through a regional focus, it shall rather be demonstrated how German ministries as well as other institutions related to education, and how university and teachers’ training colleges deal with the topic of inclusive PE. The present study thereby analyzes whether and if yes how far future PE teachers in secondary schools currently possess the option or the commitment to prepare themselves to teach inclusive classes.

Given (1) the need for teachers who are willing and able to design, implement and reflect meaningful and successful educational technology practices in schools and (2) the current rarity of strategic uses of ICT in education in Luxembourgish schools, the self-declared lack of competencies and the low confidence of teachers when it comes to teaching with ICT (Reuter, Busana & Linckels, 2016), we have designed, implemented and tested a project-based approach to the development of practice- oriented TPACK in pre-service teachers. Future teacher students are instructed to define an educational problem they want to solve, to explore existing pedagogical and technological solutions and to design an original solution that involves the strategic use of ICT (theoretically grounded and practically meaningful). They then have to implement the designed learning & teaching scenario in a classroom, to document the teaching & learning processes, to analyse, evaluate and to critically reflect them. Finally, they are required to write a structured report about their project and to present it to their peers and to interested teachers from schools. Overall, we observe that while most students become able to design and implement relatively meaningful educational technology practices, they still tend to feel that they are not ready to teach with technology in a more general sense, because their work was focused on one or two tools and does not give them access to a broader range of meaningful ICT-enriched teaching scenarios for their later professional career.

In mammals, sex specialization is reflected by differences in brain anatomy and function. Measurable differences are documented in reproductive behavior, cognition, and emotion. We hypothesized that gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) plays a crucial role in controlling the extent of the brain's sex specificity and that changes in GnRH action during critical periods of brain development, such as puberty, will result in altered sex-specific behavioral and physiological patterns. We blocked puberty in half of the 48 same-sex Scottish mule Texel cross sheep twins with GnRH analog (GnRHa) goserelin acetate every 3 weeks, beginning just before puberty. To determine the effects of GnRHa treatment on sex-specific behavior and emotion regulation in different social contexts, we employed the food acquisition task (FAT) and measurement of heart rate variability (HRV). ANOVA revealed significant sex and sex × treatment interaction effects, suggesting that treated males were more likely to leave their companions to acquire food than untreated, while the opposite effect was observed in females. Concordant results were seen in HRV; treated males displayed higher HRV than untreated, while the reverse pattern was found in females, as shown by significant sex and sex × treatment interaction effects. We conclude that long-term prepubertal GnRHa treatment significantly affected sex-specific brain development, which impacted emotion and behavior regulation in sheep. These results suggest that GnRH is a modulator of cognitive function in the developing brain and that the sexes are differentially affected by GnRH modulation. [less ▲]

We prove that given two metrics g+ and g− with curvature κ<−1 on a closed, oriented surface S of genus τ≥2, there exists an AdS manifold N with smooth, space-like, strictly convex boundary such that the induced metrics on the two connected components of ∂N are equal to g+ and g−. Using the duality between convex space-like surfaces in AdS3, we obtain an equivalent result about the prescription of the third fundamental form. [less ▲]

Cloud Services Providers (CSPs) provide cloud services to the cloud customers in the pay-per-use model and use the Service Level Agreements (SLAs) to define the quality of the provided services. SLAs are just a contract which characterizing the performance and quality of the CSPs’ services. Unfortunately, There is not an automatic and standard mechanism to verify and assure that delivered services satisfy the signed SLA agreement. In this context, this work aimed at developing an automatic framework called PRESENCE, to evaluate the Quality of Service (QoS) for the deployment of the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Web Services (WSS) offered across several CSPs. This performance evaluation will be used to verify and check on the SLA contraventions. PRESENCE aims at quantifying in a fair and by stealth way the performance and scalability of the delivered WS. By stealthiness, we refer to the capacity of evaluating a given Cloud service through multiple workload patterns that makes them indistinguishable from a regular user traffic from the provider point of view. PRESENCE introduces a definition for the set of Common performance metrics for measuring the behavior of cloud applications on top of a given CSP. This framework opens a novel perspectives for SLA contraventions assessment, monitoring, modeling the performance metrics for SaaS WSs. [less ▲]
