Abstract

Software project development in academia has the core objective to provide the student with an effective space to work in a team, interact with users, develop prototype, develop documentation, and improve presentation skills. An academic survey was done and it was found that the major challenge being faced by the institutes is the slack in controlling and tracking the project development activities. This results in poor quality software product which is in no way comparable with the industrial projects. Also, the ineffective use of tools and technologies are of great concern. The lack of proper and effective communication among the team members as well as with their project supervisor is also a major problem. Factors like, lack of enthusiasm, commitment, and financial support invite unwarranted risks. Such unstructured and uncontrolled way of working often leads to unsuccessful projects. All these factors show that academia is lacking more on the managerial issues rather than technological issues.

Abstract

This paper presents a novel friendly Kanji learning system using Radical Analysis to enable foreign people and elementary school students to learn Kanji by an interesting and efficient way. This way is for characters to analyze for each radical, to divide into some parts, and to correct strokes for each divided part. Here, the Radical Analysis Database (RAD) is used for dividing characters. RAD is a database to analyze characters for each radical and divide into some parts. On the other hand, characters are corrected by using a threshold. The threshold is a judgment value in the correction and learners can set it freely by handling threshold bars put on the interface. Then, the novel system is improved so that learners can set thresholds for each divided part. Since each bar corresponds to each part, the system judges whether each part is corrected or not according to set thresholds. Hence, since learners can freely determine radicals or parts in which they want to be instructed intensively, they can practice only their radicals not good or part of the character and easily master difficult characters, too. In addition, an animation helps learners understand the order of strokes virtually. Since each stroke used in this animation is displayed with different colors, learners can also understand virtually where the same strokes are from and to at once.

Abstract

With the emergence and evolution of computer hardware, software and networks - virtual classrooms now exist which enable teachers and students to experience learning activities and to work together at a distance either directly or on a part-time basis. We are increasingly confronted with a need for ‘lifelong training’ and it is becoming increasingly difficult for us to attend physical classrooms on a full-time basis. Research to date has highlighted an area of interest with regard to teaching computer programming in an online environment. We investigate here the use of a Cognitive Apprenticeship-Based Learning Environment (CABLE) in the teaching of Java programming in an attempt to validate its effectiveness. This paper outlines the result of using a pedagogical model which employed a combination of instructional strategies including directive support, responsive cognitive apprenticeship, collaborative learning, stimulating metacognition (organising, motivating (through a “spark”, modifying one’s own skills), and using various technologies via the use of online discussion through Blackboard.

Abstract

Information and communication technologies (ICT) will need to be fully integrated into the delivery of careers services as the world is now in the global era. Such integration would not only have the potential to achieve more but would also increase the flexibility of services and enhance their quality. Career choice is an  important  decision  a  person  needs  to  make  in  his  life  time.  Unfortunately, many young people find it uneasy to make appropriate career choice. The  paper  focused  on  the  usage  of  career  counseling  services  in  selected public secondary schools in Nigeria. It sought to find out how students and teachers utilize  career  counseling  services,  students’  expectations  in  career  counseling services  and  how  school  principals  support  career  counseling  services.  Simple random  sampling  was  used  to  select  380  from 34  public  secondary  schools  from  the  sample  population.  Four-point Likert scale questionnaires were used to obtain data for the study. The findings revealed that the students use career counseling services to take career decision and aspiration, gather career information and select and take subjects that match their career interest. Secondary school teachers use career counseling services to guide students to make appropriate subject choice that match their career interest and help them with their career challenges and plans. This paper recommends that career counselors should integrate use of ICT, through the use of chat rooms, email and social networking. In other words several choice of career could be show to the students on DVD and CD Video. They should also be exposed to TV and radio Chat on Career choice.

Abstract

This paper presents a simulation of Neuro-Fuzzy application for analyzing students’ performance based on their CPA and GPA. This analysis is an attempt for extension of Analysis on Student’s Performance Using Fuzzy Systems. This paper focuses to support the development of Intelligent Planning System (INPLANS) using Fuzzy Systems, Neural Networks, and Genetic Algorithms which will be used by the Academic Advisory Domain in educational institutions by evaluating and predicting students’ performance as well as comparing the results with the previous study. The Neuro-Fuzzy model is feed-forward architecture with five layers of neurons and four connections. System evaluation has been done for about 20- 26 cases of students’ results. The results depict that there has been a significant improvement in the performance of students’ as compared to the prediction of the same case using Fuzzy Systems.

Abstract

It is difficult for students to grasp essential concepts of materials management because there is a considerable amount of new terminology as well as the need to develop a “feel” for what appears to be a static, but in actuality, a very dynamic process. In an attempt to overcome the language barrier as well as help the student develop a “feel” for the process, an old case study from the 70s has been revised and updated it for today’s student.  The method of presentation has also been changed from an out-of class activity to an in-class group activity. Initial results, based on 3 classes of 35-40 students each, have been positive with absenteeism reduced from a historical average of 10-15% down to 2%.  Student attitude appears to be better and test results appear to be better although comparisons in this area are more difficult to measure. A copy of the game is provided and maybe be freely used in your classroom.   Any suggestions for improvement would be greatly appreciated.

Abstract

The paper investigates the barriers to the integration of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) at the secondary level learning in Pakistan, with focus on Punjab province. Exploring major barriers to the integration of ICTs at the school level, teacher level and student level and possible enablers to these barriers is the major focus of study. Sequential mixed method design is used. Interviews were analysed qualitatively whereas survey questionnaire were analysed quantitatively. It is observed from the findings that most of the participants are having positive perceptions about the integration of ICT into their teaching and learning. Administrators and ICT coordinators revealed many barriers and possible enablers to the integration of ICTs. Many of these barriers are verified by the teachers and students later on however there were some barriers which were not endorsed by the teachers and students.
