Improving the academic performance of students is utmost priority of every teacher and a concern to parents. Although, teaching resources, infrastructures, manpower have been a drawback to traditional teaching delivery methods. However, this paper investigates Improving Students' Academic Performance through Exposure to Web-Enhanced Classroom Instruction by addressing three major concerns - "the technology tool that supports and enhances student academic performance, analysis and description, and the implementation strategies for teachers and instructors in accordance to teachers teaching styles. The author explores the topic empirically with a sample of 250 students from the University of Lagos, Lagos State Polytechnic, and Federal College of Education using convenient sampling method. The findings from the investigations indicated that web-enhanced instruction support student academic performance. Consequently, the author recommends the technological tools to be adopted by teachers since they understand best the education philosophy. This will promote teacher's credibility, increase financial capacity, and eventually leads to incorporation of a new educational technology company.
Because of its global reach, reduction of time restraints, and ability to reduce costs and increase sales, use of the Internet, the World Wide Web (WWW), and related technologies can be a competitive tool in the arsenal of SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises). Countries the world over are interested in the successful adoption of the Internet by SMEs since a vast majority of their employment comes from that sector. While SMEs were touted in the late 1990's amd early 2000's as being advanced in their use of eBusiness/eCommerce, there is little empirical evidence that SMEs in the United States have optimized their use of the Internet and are engaging in a fully-integrated eBusiness process. This research investigated the level of Internet usage for business solutions by small Minnesota-based manufacturers. The results of this research indicate that although a majority of respondents use the Internet in their business activities and/or have their own Web sites, the adoption of the Internet as a business tool is limited to non-interactive, brochure-ware Web sites.
It is important for any company or organization to build culturally-competent websites which can help to increase international demand and sales, and establish a reliable, professional and international image online. The World Wide Web isa powerful marketing and communication tool in the globalized economy. Yet, the importance of cultural differences is often overlooked in user-interface design, perhaps due to the scarcity of research to test whether theories of cultural dimensions also apply to website development. The aim of the study was to examine university websites in countries with different power distances inthe framework of theories of Geert Hofstede and suggestions of Aaron Marcus on their implications. The results indicated that power distance dimension is clearly reflected at the university websites of culturally different countries. The websites between countries differ more profoundly than justby language or colour preferences.
When led effectively, inquiry-based instruction leadsto higher order thinking. Developing, Assessing, and SustainingInquiry-Based Instruction is a practical book that presents aclear, research-based guide to help teachers and other educational leadersdramatically improve their practice and, ultimately, increase student achievement. The authors have given teachers andeducational leaders down-to-earth assistance that realisticallymerges theory and practice. Specifically, they provide awell-tested model for inquiry, a web tool that frames the development andimplementation of inquiry-based lessons, and an instrument to assessthe quality of inquiry. In addition, the authors present suggestionsfor incremental change with realistic targets, and they deal head-onwith issues of classroom management and the resistance that oftenarises when trying to implement meaningful change. This book is a must for teachers and educational leaders who expectexcellence in their teaching performance and in student achievement.
Revision with unchanged content. Today, accreditation becomes more important in the higher education. Therefore, to make the accreditation process easier and sytematic for the whole stakeholders including administrators, faculties, students, and accreditators, creation and use of the web-based tools increase. While some tools focus on the part of the accreditation process such as e-portfolio, some tools focus on management side of the accreditation process. In this book, the main intent is to approach the accreditation process holistically and create the real prototype. In the book, the use of instructional design model steps and the problems during the design and development of the prototype, also are presented. This book claims the real showcase for instructional designers and technologists in terms of instructional design process, also gives some tips to those who are interested in the accreditation process, automation, program evaluation, tool development.
As the world population is increasing at a rate that is much higher than what can be supported with the present potential of crop yield, a sustainable increase in the world food production is required. This requires crop improvement to maximize yield from limited land and other available resources. The alteration of endogenous Gibberellins' levels is an effective tool for improvement of many agronomic traits in crops. This book deals with the description of modification of GA metabolic and signaling pathway for crop improvement by various approaches. The evolution of components involved in GA biosynthesis and response pathways in fungi,lower plants,dicots and monocots is also described which indicates that the approach can be applied to different crop plants. The constraints in GA level modulation are also highlighted with reference to existing homeostasis mechanisms in plants, its cross-talk with other hormones, and its regulation by the complex hormonal web which affect GA levels. This strategy possess the potential of further revolutionizing the agriculture once the complete mechanism of the regulation of plant growth and development by integrated hormonal network becomes clear.
This chapter has shown a small sample of GIS applications in economic devel- ment. GIS is a powerful tool for data analysis and presentation, and the economic development rami cations are truly signi cant. The speed at which data and stra- gies can be coordinated is clearly changing the way economic developers approach their job. There are a number of important trends that are likely to result in GIS becoming more pervasive in the economic development community. These include declining costs of GIS software, increased computing power, and the growth of Web-based GIS applications. There also has been increase in GIS skills among economic development professionals. References Bastian, L. (2002). Getting the best from the web.
