On the one hand the term is used to describe the sort of learning undertaken by students who are given a chance to acquire and apply knowledge, skills and feelings in an immediate and relevant setting. Experiential learning thus involves a, ‘direct encounter with the phenomena being studied rather than merely thinking about the encounter, or only considering the possibility of doing something about it.’ (Borzak 1981: 9 quoted in Brookfield 1983). The second type of experiential learning is ‘education that occurs as a direct participation in the events of life’ (Houle 1980: 221). David A. David A. David A. Issues Non-learning: Boud.

Kolb's Learning Styles and Experiential Learning Cycle by Saul McLeod published 2010, updated 2013 David Kolb published his learning styles model in 1984 from which he developed his learning style inventory. Kolb's experiential learning theory works on two levels: a four stage cycle of learning and four separate learning styles. Much of Kolb’s theory is concerned with the learner’s internal cognitive processes. Kolb states that learning involves the acquisition of abstract concepts that can be applied flexibly in a range of situations. “Learning is the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience” (Kolb, 1984, p. 38). The Experiential Learning Cycle Kolb's experiential learning style theory is typically represented by a four stage learning cycle in which the learner 'touches all the bases': 1. 2. 3. 4. Kolb (1974) views learning as an integrated process with each stage being mutually supportive of and feeding into the next.

Experiential Learning in The Classroom Infographic Other Infographics Experiential Learning in The Classroom Infographic Experiential Learning in The Classroom Infographic Experiential learning is the process of making meaning from direct experience, i.e., “learning from experience.” Experiential learning is a more effective way to gaining understanding of materials than lecture-based discussions. Kolb’s Experiential Learning Theory Model Expanding on earlier work by John Dewey and Kurt Levin, David Kolb’s experiential learning theory features a four-stage cyclical theory of learning. Benefits of Experiential Education Experiential education promotes positive attitudes towards learning: 10 of 14 students who have been taught using the experiential education method express significantly more positive general attitudes towards their learning experiences. Technology and Experiential Learning Technology is a highly effective teaching tool for experiential learning. Read also: 8 Reasons Why Experiential Learning Is The Future Of Learning

The One Computer Classroom What's the best way to use the one computer I have in my classroom? What strategies should I use when doing large group activities with my computer? What's the most effective way to organize small group activities with only one computer? Although many schools have computer labs, portable laptops, and multiple classroom computers, many classrooms are still dealing with a single computer in the classroom. The One Computer Classroom: The Possibilities As you explore the possibilities, think about how the computer can be used. The One Computer Classroom: Across the Curriculum As you explore ways to integrate technology into the curriculum, start with reading, writing, and mathematics.

Everything You Need to Know About Image Compression - Noupe Design Blog Feb 03 2010 Proper use of image compression can make a huge difference in the appearance and size of your website image files. But compression is an often-misunderstood topic, partly because there’s a real lack of understanding on what the different types of compression are good for. If you don’t understand which type of compression to use for different types of images, you’ll likely end up with one of two results: either images that don’t look as good as they could, or image file sizes that are way larger than they need to be. Below is everything you need to know about image compression in relation to web design. 1. Many people feel that they should only use image formats that use lossless compression. Lossless Compression There are a few different methods for lossless compression. DEFLATE is another lossless data compression method used for PNG images. Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW) compression is a lossless compression algorithm that performs a limited analysis of data. Lossy Compression 2. 3.

Face detection in pure PHP (without OpenCV) - Maurice Bloggue Une résumé en français est disponible en fin d’article. Lately, I’ve been looking for ways to detect faces in photos with PHP. Nowadays, face detection is built in many consumer products (camera obviously, but also Google and iPhoto), and seems to be a pretty common job. So I expected to find many solutions for doing it with PHP. Surprisingly, the only one I could find is OpenCV, an opensource lib that was originally developed by Intel. OpenCV seems to perform well but you need to be able to install it on your server. Learning about face detection So I started to think about implementing it myself. Always look at what others are doing Then I looked for existing implementations in other languages. The code Update: the code has moved to Once the code converted to PHP, here’s the result: And you simply use the class this way: $detector = new Face_Detector('detection.dat'); $detector->face_detect('maurice_svay_150.jpg'); $detector->toJpeg();
