Elementary School Students’ Perceptions of Technology in their Pictorial Representations
Suzan Duygu Eri?ti,Adile Akm Kurt
Turkish Online Journal of Qualitative Inquiry , 2011,
Abstract: The current study aimed to reveal elementary school students’ perceptions of technology through their pictorial representations and their written expressions based on their pictorial representations. Content analysis based on the qualitative research method along with art-based inquiry was applied. The “coding system for the concepts revealed from the research data” was implemented. Visual language used in pictorial representations produce messages, with its specialized codes. The degree of students to understand and explain their perception on technology composes the visual codes in this research. The study carried out with fifth-grade elementary school students was applied to a class of 28 students. The elementary school students participating in the present study had diverse perceptions of today’s technology, and most of their perceptions of technology were based on computer and electronic household appliances. Some students’ perceptions of technology were based on the Internet and mobile device technologies. Their perceived future technology was observed as human-computer interaction in the area of computer technology. Findings were discussed followed by relevant implications.
Examination of the Views of Preservice Teacher Regarding the Curriculum of the Course of Information Technologies with Respect to Various Variables
Journal of Kirsehir Education Faculty , 2011,
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the views of preservice information technologies teachers about the appropriateness of the curriculum of the Information Technologies course in terms of various variables on the basis of the curriculum components. In line with this purpose, single and correlational survey model were used in this study. The population of the study contained 330 pre-service information technologies teachers attending to various higher education institutions in Turkey in the spring term of 2008-2009 academic years. For data collection, the questionnaire for the “Evaluation of the Appropriateness of the Curriculum of the Course of Information Technologies” was developed by three researchers, then 227 preservice teachers, out of 330, completed the questionnaire, thus %73 rate of return was accomplished. Consequently, it was revealed that in general, the preservice information technologies teachers had positive views about the appropriateness of the curriculum of the course and that they also reported positive views about the appropriateness of the components of the curriculum, which were goal, content, teaching-learning and assessment. Furthermore, it was found out that in terms of the gender of the preservice teachers, there were differences in favor of the female preservice teachers regarding such components of the curriculum as goal, teaching-learning and assessment; however, with respect to the school type the preservice teachers, no difference was found between their views regarding the curriculum components. Finally, it was concluded that the views of the preservice teachers in terms of the curriculum components differed with respect to the universities they attended. Within the framework of the obtained results, implementations and further research were suggested.

Teachers’ Views about Effective Use of Technology in Classrooms
Suzan Duygu Eri?ti,Adile akm Kurt,Muhterem Dindar
Turkish Online Journal of Qualitative Inquiry , 2012,
Abstract: Effective use of technology in educational environments and its successful integration increases the productivity of instructional processes. Constant and good-quality support supposed to be provided for teachers is quite important for technology use in educational environments. Thus, it is necessary to find answers to the question of what kinds of activities could be used to provide teachers with constant support for technology integration in educational environments. In this respect, the present study aimed at determining teachers’ views and their suggestions about the process of technology integration into educational environments and about the problems experienced in the process. In the study, the research sample included a total of 21 teachers teaching at Tepebasi Resat Benli Elementary School in the city of Eskisehir. Of all the participating teachers, 11 of them were elementary school teachers, and 10 of them were field teachers. In order to find answers to the research questions directed in line with the overall purpose of the study, the qualitative research method was applied. The research data were analyzed with the help of thematic analysis. The research data were collected via the focus-group interviews held with the teachers, observations and researcher journals. The data collected in the study were gathered under two main themes depending on the open-ended questions directed to the teachers regarding technology use and on the related literature. These themes were ‘Problems experienced by teachers regarding technology use in class’ and ‘Suggestions for effective use of technology’.
Flexible Learning in an Information Society
Edited by Badrul H. Khan and Reviewed by Dr. Adile Akm Kurt
The Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education , 2007,
Abstract: This book was edited by, Badrul H. Khan, Director of the Educational Technology Leadership graduate cohort program at The George Washington University, and published by Information Science Publishing an imprint of Idea Group Inc.The information age has brought about many ways for educators to help their students learn, creating an atmosphere where the learners desire flexibility in the way they learn. With the increasing use of variety of approaches for learning, students’ preferences are changing from wanting to be taught mostly in lectures or direct training sessions to wanting increased flexibility. Students expect on demand anytime/anywhere high-quality learning environments with good support services. They want increased flexibility.This book uses a flexible learning framework to create meaningful flexible learning environments. This framework consists of eight factors; institutional, management, technological, pedagogical, ethical, interface design, resource support, and evaluation. This book presents a broad understanding of the emerging field of flexible learning and provides guidance in creating these environments. The book has thirty chapters, encompass various critical issues dealing with one or more categories of the flexible learning framework and offer a variety of points of view on these issues.

Novel topological descriptors for analyzing biological networks

BMC Structural Biology , 2010, DOI: 10.1186/1472-6807-10-18
Abstract: In this paper, we put the emphasis on analyzing a special type of biological networks, namely bio-chemical structures. First, we derive entropic measures to calculate the information content of vertex- and edge-labeled graphs and investigate some useful properties thereof. Second, we apply the mentioned measures combined with other well-known descriptors to supervised machine learning methods for predicting Ames mutagenicity. Moreover, we investigate the influence of our topological descriptors - measures for only unlabeled vs. measures for labeled graphs - on the prediction performance of the underlying graph classification problem.Our study demonstrates that the application of entropic measures to molecules representing graphs is useful to characterize such structures meaningfully. For instance, we have found that if one extends the measures for determining the structural information content of unlabeled graphs to labeled graphs, the uniqueness of the resulting indices is higher. Because measures to structurally characterize labeled graphs are clearly underrepresented so far, the further development of such methods might be valuable and fruitful for solving problems within biological network analysis.Major reasons for the emergence of biological network analysis [1-4] are the extensive use of computer systems during the last decade and the availability of highly demanding and complex biological data sets. For instance, important types of such biological networks are protein-protein interaction networks [5-7], transcriptional regulatory networks [8,9], and metabolic networks [7,10,11]. Note that vertices in such biological networks can represent, e.g., proteins, transcription factors or metabolites which are connected by edges representing interactions, concentrations or reactions, respectively [3,12]. Thus, vertex-and edge-labeled graphs is an important graph class [13,14] and useful for modeling biological networks [3]. To name only some well-known examples or me

Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (ACP) & Discussions (ACPD) , 2010,
Abstract: We have studied the hydration of sulfuric acid – ammonia and sulfuric acid – dimethylamine clusters using quantum chemistry. We calculated the formation energies and thermodynamics for clusters of one ammonia or one dimethylamine molecule together with 1–2 sulfuric acid and 0–5 water molecules. The results indicate that dimethylamine enhances the addition of sulfuric acid to the clusters much more efficiently than ammonia when the number of water molecules in the cluster is either zero, or greater than two. Further hydrate distribution calculations reveal that practically all dimethylamine-containing two-acid clusters will remain unhydrated in tropospherically relevant circumstances, thus strongly suggesting that dimethylamine assists atmospheric sulfuric acid nucleation much more effectively than ammonia.
