  • Mathematical modelling in engineering: a proposal to introduce linear algebra concepts 

    Cárcamo Bahamonde, Andrea Dorila; Gómez Urgellés, Joan Vicenç; Fortuny Aymeni, José María (OmniaScience, 2016-03)
    Open Access
    The modern dynamic world requires that basic science courses for engineering, including linear algebra, emphasize the development of mathematical abilities primarily associated with modelling and interpreting, which aren´t ...
  • The use of e-portfolio in a linear algebra course 

    Taberna Torres, Judit; García Planas, María Isabel; Domínguez García, Santiago (OmniaScience, 2016-03)
    Open Access
    The use of e-portfolio becomes more common learning and student assessment; and this is due to the need for teachers to enhance students’ autonomy. The use of e-portfolio helps students to reflect on their own learning ...
  • An evaluation tool for physics applets

    Open Access
    Physics applets are well known appealing resources for teaching and learning physics, and there is a lot of them available on the Internet. Nevertheless, not all of them are of the same quality as such resources nor fit ...
  • Post secondary project-based learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics 

    Ralph, Rachel A. (OmniaScience, 2016-03)
    Open Access
    Project-based learning (PjBL - to distinguish from problem-based learning - PBL) has become a recurrent practice in K-12 classroom environments. As PjBL has become prominent in K-12 classrooms, it has also surfaced in ...
  • ICT and inclusive education: attitudes of the teachers in secondary education 

    Fernández Batanero, José María; Colmenero Ruiz, María Jesús (OmniaScience, 2016-03)
    Open Access
    The inclusion and the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) configure a field of great scientific interest in the current society. In this context, the attitudes of the teachers towards the ICT play an important ...
  • ‘Standards’ on the bench: do standards for technological literacy render an adequate image of technology? 

    Nia, Mahdi Ghaemi; De Vries, Marc J. (OmniaScience, 2016-03)
    Open Access
    The technological literacy of students has recently become one of the primary goals of education in countries such as the USA, England, New Zealand, Australia, and so forth. However the question here is whether these ...
