Agir en faveur de l’engagement et de la motivation des élèves Parmi les sept facteurs déterminants du climat scolaire, les stratégies pédagogiques sont favorables à l’engagement et à la motivation des élèves. S’informer “En ce qui concerne la relation pédagogique, le choix s’oriente vers un style qui promeut la coopération et évite les deux pièges bien connus de l’autoritarisme et du laisser-faire […]. L’adulte ne se défait pas de son rôle de leader mais il autorise et aide l’auto-organisation du groupe et l’autodiscipline du jeune en particulier par la négociation des règles de vie et le partage des responsabilités.” (Debarbieux, 2008). “Améliorer le climat passe par l’augmentation de l’identification collective dans les établissements, celle des professionnels comme celle des élèves.” Agir Un bon climat scolaire et le bien être à l’école, au collège ou au lycée, du point de vue des élèves, reposent sur un certain nombre de principes éducatifs et pédagogiques.

Panopticism Keynote address for "Earth to Avatars"26 October 1996 Mark Pescempesce@netcom.com Part One: A Brief History of the Virtual Word What is interesting is that we’ve never envisioned cyberspace as anything but a social space. Gibson’s Matrix was filled with users - legal and illegal - AI’s and, when it changed, the Loa of Voudon. Gibson dreams his tech but Stephenson has it down cold; so everything in the Matrix is perfect, while The Street, populated with barbies and low-rez avatars gave us a real direction, a real vision. The success of The Palace and Alphaworld - which must be admitted as immature technologies - proves the existence of a powerful drive to connect. Because connection is the only thing in that space is real, the only thing that persists after the servers go down and the networks jam up. An avatar, then, serves one purpose above all - as a vehicle of communication. Part Two: Self in Cyberspace What does this digital incarnation of the self communicate? Cyberspace: First Steps.

Bienvenue A France Patchwork CROSSED CANOES - Antique Geometric Quilt Designs "The featherweight, handmade birch bark canoes [employed by Native Americans] provided the impulse for the creation of this quilt design [....] The broken square formed by the crossing of the canoes usually was pieced of bright colors by early quilt makers to represent the emblem which the tribal chiefs used on their canoe." According to Wikipedia (illustration right): "The word canoe comes from the Carib kenu (dugout), via the Spanish canoa. [...] Many indigenous peoples of the Americas built bark canoes. They were usually skinned with birch bark over a light wooden frame, but other types could be used if birch was scarce." For another boat pattern at this site, compare with VARIATION OF SAIL BOATS. "The letter 'X' often marks the spot and can be directing you to look closely at the symbolism to find direction. [...] Compare the "optical" rendering in the tiling pattern below with OP ART DESIGN.

Material Obsession Ever wonder how a fabric collection comes together? FreeSpirit Fabrics has just released my latest range, Celebrate! They asked me to talk about the design process and inspiration. You know me right?! Here is the beginning of Celebrate! One afternoon I was sketching with a fabric range in mind. Party Favours is the feature print. Once I had my party favors the idea of a party celebration was on fire! It started with the invited characters that make a gathering interesting. Setting the table with a colorful floral table cloth makes for a festive event. It is also perfect for a shirt…for that special guy Dave the DJ! Party Land was a nod to a tropical theme. For the last few years party banners have been popular so I thought they would make an interesting graphic print with a variety of lines and patterns. To top off any party a bit of fizzy bubbly doesn’t go astray so Bubbles were added in three colours for backgrounds and light. Contemporary –for those of you (and Wendy Williams!!!)

En cosmologie, un mirage topologique est un hypothétique mirage, qui serait dû à la topologie de l'Univers. Plus précisément, cet effet serait lié à la structure et aux raccordements topologiques de celui-ci. Ce mirage nous donnerait l'impression que l'univers est plus vaste qu'il ne l'est en réalité en démultipliant les sources « lumineuses » qui nous proviennent du cosmos : un peu comme une pièce tapissée de miroirs réfléchit infiniment son propre contenu. Origine de la théorie[modifier | modifier le code] Origine de l'illusion[modifier | modifier le code] Rappelons que la relativité générale stipule que les rayons lumineux se déplacent selon les géodésiques - les « lignes droites » - de l'espace.
