    We have designed a PBL curriculum for "period for integrated study" using mathematics as a tool for problem solving and evaluated its effectiveness. Students learned two methods, which were how to use differential equation as a tool, and how to choose their own problems, and solve them. We introduced a method using spreadsheet in order to calculate numeric solutions of differential equations. We i... View full abstract»

    In these days, the number of educators who use Squeak in their education is increasing. However, most of them do not have enough experience in teaching with Squeak and are looking for how to educate children with it. We introduce a new system, which helps us to generate new specialized morph kits. This system helps educators to create and share good methods of Squeak education by the specialized k...

    Wikis can be considered as public domain knowledge sharing system. They provide opportunity for those who may not have the privilege to publish their thoughts through the traditional methods. They are one of the fastest growing systems of online encyclopaedia. In this study, we consider the importance of wikis as a way of creating, sharing and improving public knowledge. We identify some of the pr... View full abstract»

    Nowadays, people want to extract variety of information from on line texts. As more and more text becomes available on-line, there is emergent need for systems that extract information automatically from text corpus. One of the principle challenges of information extraction is the efficient customization of a system to a new domain. Adapting an information extraction system to a new domain entails...

    Information sources on the Web are controlled by different text formats, and have varying inconsistencies. Data form many online sources do not contain enough information to accurately link the records. To link record from different data sources, any system must identify common entities from these sources. Therefore, the major challenges in record linkage are computational complexity and linkage a... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose indexing conference movies with thinking states. Currently, one of reasons why conference movies do not represent participants' thinking states is that existing ways do not place emphasis on receding participants' concentration and interest. To address this issue, we define MS-Level (Mental State Level) derived from one's beta wave (a part of brainwave) as an indicator of... View full abstract»

    Education is a typical activity of collaboration, i.e., collaboration among instructors and students. While there have been vast amount of trials using computers in the classroom, their success is quite limited compared with total activities done in school education. The reasons of the limited success may be the cost of introducing computers into the classroom, lack of adequate software, or lack o... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose a printing environment utilizing collaboration to offer more reliable printing environment. In the proposed environment, printers are clustered, and collaborative printing is carried out among clusters if one cluster is very busy and others are not. We also work on the formal verification problem of such collaborative environment, since a number of properties must be sati... View full abstract»

    3D virtual environments like Croquet need to be attractive in order to be visited and used. Their attractiveness depends on the level of vitality that the user is able to experience. Vitality can only be recognized by constant changes, similar to phenomena we know from nature like breathing. We introduce two sorts of vitality by which a virtual environment can be judged: active and passive vitalit... View full abstract»
