Eine Dynamische Geometrie Software (DGS) setzt das Handeln der Kinder in den Vordergrund. Die Schüler manipulieren ein Programm, das ihnen erlaubt Änderungen in geometrischen Figuren visuell zu erfassen und experimentell zu beeinflussen. Dieser dynamische Umgang mit den einzelnen mathematischen Objekten in einem entdeckenden Unterricht bewirkt vermutlich ein besseres Verständnis der elementaren Geometriekenntnisse bei allen Kindern. In dem DGS GeoGebra werden zusätzlich zu der grafischen Darstellung die dazugehörigen algebraischen Ausdrücke (z.B. Koordinaten, Länge, Umfang) angezeigt. Eine Änderung dieser Ausdrücke bewirkt auch eine Änderung der geometrischen Objekte und umgekehrt. Somit können die Kinder die Formeln des Umfangs und des Flächeninhalts experimentell entdecken und anschließend direkt in GeoGebra anwenden. [less ▲]

Interactive Geometry is a way to improve mathematics education with the help of a computer. Using sophisticated software, sketches and figures can be brought to life, comparable to what movies mean to images. Although many examples of helpful activities that were created using Interactive Geometry Software exist, interactive geometry software is still not used regularly in classrooms. In fact, many teachers do not know about the new possibilities, or they do not have access to the necessary resources. The EU-co-funded project Intergeo will attack the three main barriers for a EU-wide adoption of the existing material: missing search facilities, lack of interoperability, and missing quality information.

This research investigated the hypothesis that working memory skills are independent of environmental factors such as socio-economic status (SES) or cultural background. Twenty Brazilian children aged 6 and 7 years from low SES families were evaluated on measures of working memory (verbal short-term memory and verbal complex span, taken form the AWMA: Automated Working Memory Assessment) and of vocabulary (expressive and receptive). They were compared with typically developing Brazilian children from the same region but from families of higher SES and to a population of Portuguese- speaking, immigrant children growing up in Luxembourg/EU. Children were matched on age, sex, and nonverbal ability. The three groups differed significantly on the vocabulary measures but not on the verbal short-term memory tests. Further the groups differed on one of the two complex span measures – counting recall - but performed equally well on backwards digit recall. The results indicate that tests of verbal short-term memory and also backwards digit recall provide measures of cognitive abilities that are not biased by the quality of the child’s socio-economical or cultural background. As these measures are also highly sensitive to language ability, they may provide useful methods for diagnosing language disorder that are independent of environmental opportunity. [less ▲]

Information and Communication Technologies have predominantly entered the realm of universities to support administrations and teachers in their everyday professional activities, but did not necessarily contribute to fundamental paradigmatic changes. For instance, many lecturers, instead of handing out printed course material, put their lecture notes on a website. But such online course material is still course material produced by a teacher. This does not necessarily imply a shift in pedagogical approach. However, if ICT is to be a tool for students to become active and productive learners, a groundbreaking pedagogical change in favor of a more learner-centered approach becomes crucial. In the current paper we will show how the ambition to change teaching practices (from knowledge transmission/acquisition to collaborative knowledge construction) progressively led to ICT enriched learning environments at the University of Luxembourg. We will provide a thorough description of the educational technology tools currently implemented across the university. Furthermore, we will show how they are used by students and teachers of a specific bachelor program to become members of a learning community. Finally, an overview of current issues as well as future developments will be given. [less ▲]

Against the background of the enlargement of the European Union, Ireland is often mentioned as a key example for the Central and Eastern European countries of a successful European integration process. Thereby, the development of the complete Republic of Ireland since the EU accession in 1973 is analyzed. If you survey separately the economic and social development of urban and rural regions, it emerges that the rural regions could hardly participate in the economic success of Ireland and that disparities have increased. Many farmers are depended on public welfare to make a living, as the Irish living costs have increased during the last years. Consequently today about one third of the Irish households live - in spite of the economic success of the Celtic Tiger - under the relative poverty line. Against the background of this depletion process, the question comes up whether Ireland can act as a paradigm for the European integration process of Poland. Looking at the initial situation of Ireland in 1973 and the current situation in Poland, several parallels exist, however, also strong distinctions. While major similarities can be determined with the agricultural structures as well as with the social value system, developments in Poland are still subject to the not yet completed transformation process from a socialistic to a democratic and capitalistic system. Moreover, the different size and amount of population of these two countries must be considered regarding the European integration process. On the basis of two rural regions as examples -Powiat Zlotow in Northwestern Poland and County Mayo in Western Ireland – rural development shall be presented and compared at the time of EU accession as well as today. Concluding perspectives of the transferability on the regional level shall be pointed out. [less ▲]

Public announcement logic (PAL) is a simple dynamic epistemic logic extending reasoning about knowledge of agents with a modal operator for simultaneous and transparent knowledge updates. This logic is no more expressive than epistemic logic (EL) without updates, but exhibits compact representation of a number of complex epistemic situations. A labeled tableau proof system to reason with these updates directly is presented here. This system can analyse and present well-known epistemic puzzles like `muddy children' and `three wise men'. Using the KE tableau system as a basis, the modal and propositional characteristics of epistemic updates can be separated. [less ▲]

This research investigated the hypothesis that working memory skills are independent of environmental factors such as socio-economic or cultural background. Study 1: Twenty Brazilian children aged 6 and 7 years from low socio-economic status families were evaluated on measures of working memory (verbal short-term memory and verbal complex span, taken form the AWMA: Automated Working Memory Assessment) and of vocabulary (expressive and receptive). They were compared with typically developing Brazilian children from the same region, matched on age, sex, and nonverbal ability from families of higher socio-economic status. Children from the low socioeconomic status group obtained significantly lower scores on the vocabulary tests but not on the verbal short-term memory measures, compared to their peers from a higher socio-economical background.

The results indicate that tests of verbal short-term memory and also backwards digit recall provide measures of cognitive abilities that are not biased by the quality of the child's socio-economical background. Study 2: The Brazilian children were also compared to a population of Portuguese- speaking, immigrant children growing up in Luxembourg, evaluated on the same measures. Results will specify whether or not, in addition to being independent of socioeconomic background, verbal short-term memory and backwards digit recall are also free of cultural bias. As these measures are also highly sensitive to language ability, they may provide useful methods for diagnosing language disorder that are independent of environmental opportunity. [less ▲]

The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship between working memory, phonological awareness and developing language skills in a population of children growing up in a multilingual context involving the three languages of Luxembourgish, German, and French. A sample of 122 children from Luxembourg aged 5 to 7 years participated in the study, completing assessments of phonological short-term memory, complex working memory, phonological awareness, native and foreign vocabulary knowledge, language comprehension and reading. The data were best characterized by a model of working memory that consisted of two related but separable components - corresponding to phonological short-term memory and the central executive - that were distinct from phonological awareness. Language abilities in both the native and foreign languages were more strongly associated with phonological short-term memory than other factors in the model. The findings lend strong support to the proposal that vocabulary learning in particular is mediated, in part at least, by phonological short-term memory. [less ▲]
