Project Zero Classroom with Programs in Professional Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education What You Will Learn Create classrooms, instructional materials and out-of-school learning environments that promote deep learning and understanding. Program Overview What constitutes an effective and powerful learning experience in the 21st century? As we examine the shifting terrain of education, it is essential to be responsive to complex social developments and to create learning experiences that are engaging and exciting for all learners.
From Researching Virtual Initiatives in Education This wiki is the largest professional wiki in the world devoted to virtual learning in education - at all levels (schools, colleges and universities) including informal learning, open learning/OER and distance learning. Welcome to the entry page of this wiki where you will find information about virtual schools, colleges and universities. The idea behind this wiki is to create an open and public space where researchers can share information about virtual developments in various different educational sectors.

Welcome to the 2014 program! We welcome you to the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research. Last year, we celebrated a half century as a leading program in training in social science research methodologies and technologies. In 2014, we continue to serve diverse multidisciplinary and growing international constituencies, and are working to make our program even better known. One of the Summer Program's outstanding strengths is its supportive and unique social environment. It facilitates participants' exchange of ideas, approaches, and techniques to develop theories and analyses of social science topics. ICPSR Summer Program
Studentized Range - Q The studentized range statistic is commonly used in post-hoc analyses. The distribution function is built-in to R and we may access it in one of two ways. ptukey(q, nmeans, df) qtukey(p, nmeans, df) Using R for statistical analyses - Non-parametric statistics

Kruskal-Wallis Test A collection of data samples are independent if they come from unrelated populations and the samples do not affect each other. Using the Kruskal-WallisTest, we can decide whether the population distributions are identical without assuming them to follow the normal distribution. Example
In our previous statistics tutorials, we have treated population parameters as fixed values, and provided point estimates and confidence intervals for them. An alternative approach is the Bayesian statistics. It treats population parameters as random variables. Probability becomes a measure of our belief in possible outcomes. With new tools like OpenBUGS, tackling new problems requires building new models, instead of creating yet another R command. An R Introduction to Statistics
The Serious Game Design Summer School is funded with help from the European Commission and time generously donated by participating Industries. Hence the school itself is free for participating students, and those students from the three participating Universities will also receive a subsistence and travel allowance.
