Enhancing Learner Autonomy in an On-line Editing Programme
Hebe Wong
Studies in Self-Access Learning Journal , 2011,
Abstract: Little (1999) argues that in formal educational contexts, “the basis of learner autonomy is acceptance of responsibility for one’s own learning” (p.11). An autonomous learner takes responsibility for various aspects of learning (Benson & Voller, 1997; Holec, 1981). This study examines how learner autonomy opportunities were provided at various stages of writing in an on-line editing programme for a group of electronic engineering students and how the students took charge of their language learning when receiving feedback on their technical writing. The impact on their own learning effectiveness of the decisions students made is also discussed.

Abstract: This study investigated the effect of a visual memory training program on Chinese handwriting performance among primary school students with dyslexia in Hong Kong. Eight students of Grade 2 to 3 who were diagnosed with dyslexia were recruited. All participants received six sessions of training, which composed of 30-minute computerized game-based visual memory training and 30-minute Chinese character segmentation training. Visual perceptual skills and Chinese handwriting performance were assessed before and after the training, as well as three weeks after training using the Test of Visual Perceptual Skills (3rd edition) (TVPS-3) and the Chinese Handwriting Analysis System (CHAS). In comparing the pre- and post-training results, paired t-tests revealed significant improvements in visual memory skills, as well as handwriting speed, pause time and pen pressure after the training. There was no significant improvement in handwriting accuracy or legibility. The improved visual memory and handwriting performance did not show a significant drop at the follow-up assessments. This study showed promising results on a structured program to improve the Chinese handwriting performance, mainly in speed, of primary school children. The improvements appeared to be well-sustained after the training program. There is a need to further study the long-term effect of the program through a randomized controlled trial study.
Ciencia, tecnología y desarrollo: una experiencia de apropiación social del conocimiento
Vessuri,Hebe;
Interciencia , 2002,
Abstract: this paper is about a social process. as a part of the ongoing revolution in computer mediated technologies, an analysis is made of the potential offered, from the perspective of the social appropriation of knowledge, by a new website for global dialogue in the field of science, technology, development and innovation that aims to an audience including all those with either a professional or personal interest in the role of science and technology in sustainable development. a brief opening discussion is made of the difficulties of improving the social understanding of science in developing countries. then scidev.net is analyzed as a project trying to build up a social web around scientific issues from the perspective of the south. the strategic aims of the website, as well as issues like the existence of hidden agendas in many of those sites, the relevance of the topics covered, the directionality of the flows of information, audiences targeted by the website, the challenges posed for building up a more harmonic international collaboration in this field, are all paid attention.
Saber leer, aprender a leer
Tizio, Hebe;
Educa??o em Revista , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-46982009000100012
Abstract: following the observation that, nowadays, people read less, the author places another question: do people read less or do they just read differently? thus, the article interrogates the relation of the talking being to writing and culture, highlighting in the reading process the interpretation component which does not occur apart from the unconscious reading. it presents the unconscious as an interpreter, to wit, a reading device that interprets reality and everything that is read. it draws attention to the dimension of satisfaction inherent in the interpretation activity and in the schooling function to spot possibilities so that the said satisfaction may spread socially.
Laboratorios y experimentos: Democracia y política en la investigación industrial
VESSURI,HEBE;
Cuadernos del Cendes , 2005,
Abstract: in latin america the local experimental scientific activity is often invisible. lack of interest for the life of the laboratory seems to obey to reasons that are not alien to some generalized intellectual, social and technological structures in techno-scientific research during the last half century in countries with advanced science, and a whole range of social phenomena that surround and give entity to that science, establishing viability indexes that prevent an easy transference of concepts from those contexts to the latin american ones. it is often assumed that some ideas can only emerge from certain forms of international cooperation. in the present paper the contingency and determinism of industrial research is discussed, the example of orimulsion is revised as a national flagship technological development in relation to the notion of technology practice communities, and the distinction between policy and politics is debated, arguing that basic decisions about industrial r&d are political.
El ejercicio de la observación sociotécnica... a propósito de los observatorios de ciencia y tecnología
VESSURI,HEBE;
Cuadernos del Cendes , 2002,
Abstract: abstract the evolution of statistical thought and enumerations is reviewed as well as their use in the description and explanation of natural and social phenomena. the social sciences have been active producers and consumers of statistical data. at present it may be argued whether in widening its scope in the attempt to embrace and control the growing and disordered amalgam of users there is a change of skin of statistics as a discipline. this is not merely an academic question related to the scope and boundaries of the field of knowledge, but a practical and political one. the specificity of science and technology invites to analyze the diversity and overlapping of the activities in which scientists and engineers participate, that touch dimensions of reality as different as economics, public administration, forms of evaluation, the interests of researchers, industry, the state, financial capital, etc. the growth in the quantity of more or less comparable data about science and technology helps interpret the changes. hence the interest posed by new organizational forms for this social monitoring as the observatories of science, technology, and innovation.
Ciencia, política e historia de la ciencia contemporánea en Venezuela
Vessuri,Hebe;
Revista Venezolana de Economía y Ciencias Sociales , 2005,
Abstract: at the outset of this new century, the venezuelan scientific community is un-dergoing a profound crisis. why have the expectations of the scientific pioneers fifty years ago not been realized? why has the scientific community not grown more rapidly and diversified its interests more? why is the ideological rift within the scientific community now so evident? why is there so much discon-tent in scientific circles? the author broaches these questions on the basis of a rereading of the relationship between scientific policy, the history of science and the economic and political evolution of venezuelan society during the last fifty years of democratic experience.
Competición y colaboración en un contexto de multiplicación de "centros de atracción" y "desiertos yermos"
Vessuri, Hebe;
Revista de la educación superior , 2008,
Abstract: the world has had a great economic progress during the second half of the 20th century, including the underdeveloped countries. we have been witnesses of the global integration of markets and economic structures. nevertheless, it has not been a uniform process. poverty exists everywhere. to reduce it, developing countries need to achieve a technological improvement, the domain and production of knowledge and invest on innovation. they must raise the educational levels with deep reforms in their system; the institutions either of top education, scientific and technological research, must fortify it in an integrated way, and create new programs that would transform the territorial organization within the countries and the whole region.
