Presented at UIST (ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology) www.acm.org PAPER ABSTRACT: Previous work has demonstrated the viability of applying offline analysis to interpret forearm electromyography (EMG) and classify finger gestures on a physical surface. We extend those results to bring us closer to using musclecomputer interfaces for always-available input in real-world applications. We leverage existing taxonomies of natural human grips to develop a gesture set covering interaction in free space even when hands are busy with other objects. We present a system that classifies these gestures in real-time and we introduce a bi-manual paradigm that enables use in interactive systems. We report experimental results demonstrating four-finger classification accuracies averaging 79% for pinching, 85% while holding a travel mug, and 88% when carrying a weighted bag. We further show generalizability across different arm postures and explore the tradeoffs of providing real-time visual feedback. AUTHORS: T. Scott Saponas, Desney S.

We all know that for children, good vision is critical for many classroom tasks - from reading books or seeing a blackboard to viewing a computer screen. But for a child who has trouble seeing, going back-to-school can bring about feelings of fear and dread. The thought of having to struggle through another academic year can take a devastating toll on both the student and his or her family. Subtle signs your child may have vision problems... Loses his or her place while reading Avoids close work Holds reading material closer than normal Tends to rub his or her eyes Has headaches Turns or tilts head to use one eye only Makes frequent reversals when reading or writing Uses finger to maintain place when reading Omits or confuses small words when reading Consistently performs below potential Behavioral problems When should a child have his or her first comprehensive eye exam? The longer a vision problem goes undiagnosed and untreated, the more a childs brain has to overcompensate to live with the vision problem, instead of developing and learning normally. Unfortunately, a recent survey showed that 57% of children did not receive their first eye exam until age five or older. A childs first eye exam take place at six months of age Unless problems are detected, the next exam should be at three years Again, before entering primary school Finally, every two years thereafter Good vision equals good grades in the classroom!
Fariel Mohan, The University of Trinidad & Tobago This paper presents an investigation into incorporating technology in teaching and learning in the Caribbean classroom. In the classroom of the Caribbean schools, technology is not widely used. A school may have a computer lab but this is currently widely used to teach computer literacy. The main body of assessment in the Caribbean is Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) which bases its examination on three domains of Blooms Taxonomy of Learning which is knowledge, analysis and synthesis. This same general approach is used in the tertiary institution. At this level, a little more emphasis is placed on coursework assessment. Jones (1995) noted that learners must develop an intelligent partnership with the technology they use. In incorporating technology opens to a lot of academic issues as highlighted by Forte (2003) in identifying how new advances in technology are creating opportunities for cheating. In the Caribbean where the culture is education can bring one out of poverty or can bring status to the family, has developed a great desire to obtain education. This paper examines the effect of incorporating technology in the coursework assessment. The coursework assessment is then compared with the final written paper. The sample used was first year students at the University of Trinidad & Tobago. The course selected was Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming since coursework assessment is an integral part in the ...
Presenter: Barbara Glesner-Fines All good teaching has certain common elements. The teacher must select and master the subject matter and skills to be taught, organize learning activities that will actively engage students with that subject matter and allow practice of those skills, and provide prompt and constructive feedback. This presentation describes one tool for improved teaching translating ones teaching into computer assisted instruction. Many faculty recognize that computer assisted lessons can be useful for students, providing an efficient and interactive method for learning, supplementing or reviewing class materials. Thus, in recent years, an increasing number of faculty have begun to author computer assisted instruction, whether through the "quiz" features of course management software or through independent cai programs. The process of authoring these lessons has an unanticipated benefit for most of these authors: most have found that the process of authoring these lessons, especially when working in a collaborative setting, enriches the authors overall classroom teaching. Many find that the improvements in teaching extend not only to teaching the particular topic of the lesson authored, but of all classroom instruction. This presentation will describes the author's experience in designing computer assisted lessons and her observations from serving on the editorial board of a computer assisted lesson consortium and having reviewed hundreds of lesson pages ...

First: I'm not a teacher (yet!). For my EDTE 520 class I had to write a Classroom Management Plan, which ended up being 15 pages with a computer generated floor plan. However, the instructor said that creative ways to present our plan to the class were encouraged, so I wrote a song about it. Then, while practicing the song, I thought it would be cool if I had a slide show or something in the background...I found some cute pictures of classrooms, students and critters on the internet, shot some video of yours truly and put together this video. Several friends told me it should go on Youtube, so here it is - Just for fun.

Hi. Ok. Im trying to prep a lecture for Friday about technology in the classroom or, more specifically, the online classroom. So I thought Id throw out a few ideas. Ok. There are 2 kinds of schools that use internet classes. The first is schools that are totally on line. No physical buildings. The second are normal schools; schools with physical buildings and classrooms that want to add internet classes. That second kind is what Ill be focusing on. Why would a school want to add online classes? There are a few reasons. First, many schools have problems b/c they want to expand but they cant because maybe theyre in the middle of a city and other buildings or roads are blocking them. But they want to expand so they can get more money from students. They dont want the physical building to limit the number of students they can accept. For online classes students can sign up without having to travel to campus, which is good for students who work, have families, or are disabled, who have a hard time traveling to school. They can work from home. Also, students from foreign countries can sign up and the school can get money from that group of people. My school has some internet classes. Theyre slowly starting to add. There are two ways schools can add internet classes. First, some schools have pre-designed classes. They establish a reading schedule and plan and then just bring in a teacher who uses that plan. In the second kind- which is like my school—each individual teacher sets ...

National Cristina Foundation Alan Weinberger: Alan Weinberger talks about the NCF NCF started as a small operation - with one Apple IIe computer. In 1983, Bruce McMahan's daughter, Cristina McMahan, a young girl with cerebral palsy, was part of a special education class in the Yonkers Public Schools in Westchester County, New York. Her classmates included children with a range of disabilities from spina bifida, a loss of limbs, to learning disabilities. Many of the children needed adults to act as scribes for them when they wanted to write or draw. It occurred to Cristina's teacher, Dr. Yvette Marrin, that a computer in the classroom could be a big help to enabling these children to accomplish tasks that other children took for granted. Marrin held a fundraising picnic, which netted her $100 of the $2500 she needed. However, Cristina's father, D. Bruce McMahan, was intrigued by her idea and donated the rest of the money required to put a computer (the Apple IIe) in her classroom. The first formal NCF project was in collaboration with the Maryland Rehabilitation Center in 1986. Bruce McMahan jump-started the process by donating 2500 personal computers to the State of Maryland. After this initial effort NCF developed a Re-use Model, which it still uses today. In 1996 NCF celebrated its tenth anniversary with an award ceremony to recognize two super achievers with disabilities: Harold Russell, Oscar award recipient for his portrayal of a disabled vet in The Best Years of Our ...
