Title of paper: Developing Professional Capital: From Pedagogic Solitude to the Teacher's Takeaway

Abstract: This project demonstrates how the principles of Joint Practice Development (JPD) (Fielding et al, 2005) have been applied when attempting to solve the issue of staff engagement with CPD. The culmination of this project was the Teachers Takeaway (www.teacherstakeaway.co.uk) which is an online platform showcasing instances of outstanding teaching, learning and assessment where staff from 3 local colleges; Havant and South Downs, Eastleigh and Fareham College have recorded 3-5 minute videos on various topics including management of learning, use of technology and embedding English and Maths. The collaborative nature of JPD (and also the outcome of the project) sought to break the “silo mentality” or as Schulman (1993) calls it “pedagogic solitude” via inclusive and effective relationships being built and this website is an example of how that can be achieved.

Title of paper: Virtual learning spaces with Go-Lab

Abstract: The Scientix Platform features various projects including Next Lab, which is a continuation of Go-Lab, a platform that offers free educational resources. Go-Lab is a platform that opens virtual labs, remote labs and datasets from laboratory experiments for various disciplines, widely used in education. It also provides access to information sources, wider and more varied knowledge, promotes student's independent work, inventiveness and creativity, and the applications and the labs posted on the platform can integrate into teaching, learning and assessment activities. It is a platform accessible to all and contributes to the development or improvement of "Inquiry Learning Spaces" (ILS) known as a virtual learning space that offers a constructive, interactive and integrated environment centered on learning, teaching, and evaluation.
Because Go - Lab includes a very wide range of applications and services that use browsing (the Web), being a unified platform, organized on communication, it is very important for students to know the applications, to use and integrate them into various lesson plans. This platform is a challenge, and any teacher is motivated when working for a personal, professional objective, or when creating their own applications which they can publish to make it available to other teachers and students. The Go-Lab portal offers the opportunity to use personalized scientific experiments with the many innovative teaching tools and resources that are structured according to the students' learning level. Integration of online platforms into lessons can lead to usable products by connecting with other disciplines.

Title of paper: Towards Integrating ICTs in EFL Classes

Abstract: ICT has been used in educational settings since its inception, but recent empirical research has affirmed that it plays a vital role in high-quality learning and teaching. However, many teachers remain resistant to using technology in the classroom. In order to encourage uptake of new educational technologies, it is argued that fundamental research on the potential impact of technology on school life must be conducted. The present study discusses how ICT can be used effectively in tertiary education to enhance English teaching and learning. It focuses on the role of ICT in improving the quality of learning and teaching with reference to technologies appropriate for this context. The aim of this research work is to investigate, interpret and analyze the methods used by teachers in order to enhance students' English skills and to provide suggestions as how to use ICTs more productively to enhance learners proficiency in the language. In order to achieve the study' s aims, two semi-structured interviews have been administered to both 50 students of the third year English and 10 teachers of English at the University of Hamma Lakhdar, El-Oued, Algeria. The findings of the present study are expected to raise awareness on the importance and necessity of ICTs in English classes.

Abstract: Science and technology are the significant issues to develop the country and improve the quality of life. Teaching and learning of Science subject is difficult to comprehend if there are limited of equipment and student do not practice by his/herself. Now Thailand is facing with an education crisis and needs to reform education by focus on critical thinking skills. Also, learning programming language seems difficult for students because the content is complex and involves with self-practice and syntactic coding and problem-solving ability. The drop-out rate of this course is continually raised. Therefore, to develop students' ability, this research proposes learning model for an introduction programming language course based on problem-based learning integrated with e-Learning and this model was used to validate the efficiency of the learning model. Data was collected both questionnaire and log data from e-Learning and e-Learning class activities consisted of the ability to perform problem analysis and design, development and testing, and evolution and testing. The participants were 36 undergraduate students who enrolled in introduction programming language course. The means and standard deviation were used to analyze data and the results showed that the mean score of posttest was significantly higher than the pretest and the average mean score of exercises was at a high level. To evaluate the result of students' attitudes toward learning via the proposed model, the questionnaire and interview form were applied to test students and the finding revealed that this proposed model are effective tools to learn and enhance self-practice and syntactic coding and problem-solving ability and student have positive attitudes towards learning model for an introduction programming language course.

Title of paper: Monitoring and Alarming the Level of Liquid in a Tank

Abstract: In this paper we are going to use a ultrasonic sensor for monitoring and alarming the level of liquid in a tank. This is achieved by sending an ultrasound (inaudible to the human ear for its high frequency) through one of the pair of cylinders that make up the sensor (a transducer) and waiting for that sound to bounce on an object and return, return captured by the other cylinder. When the liquid exceeds a maximum level or falls below a minimum level, it will start a visual and audible alarm. This system will be built using the Arduino Uno development platform, and programming will be done using the LabVIEW graphical programming. This alarm system can monitors liquid levels in lift pump chambers, sump pump basins, holding tanks, sewage, agricultural, and other water applications.

Title of paper: Importance of the positive atmosphere in the blended learning for active learning of the students

Abstract: A positive atmosphere in the classroom can be achieved if the lecturer and the students are active subjects involved in a collaborative activity in which exist an active exchanging of information and a subjective sense of comfort, significance, and satisfaction.
In the report, we emphasize on the positive atmosphere, because in the process of pedagogical communication, a barrier can be not only the psychological peculiarities of the students, but also the relations established between lecturers and students, students - group, etc. The study was conducted with students all Bachelor's degree courses at the Faculty of Technics and Technology - Yambol in 2016/2017 academic year. From the questionnaire we have analyzed the results of some of the answers to the question related to the support that professors provide to the training and learning of the students. For ranking of the answers, we used a four-stage scale. The emphasis is put on the influence of the positive climate and its impact on the emotional sphere of the students. On some of the components of the emotional atmosphere a comparative analysis of the results of our previous study was made.
The formulated conclusions are focused on the use of the possibilities of the retial and axial communication processes depending on the purpose and the essence of the communication; in the virtual environment the lecturers should be guided by the personally oriented approach and the implementation of the individual feedback; stimulation of the professors to develop e-courses, to improve their digital competences.

Title of paper: Science students’ acceptance to LINE application using in Laboratory subject

Abstract: Nowadays, social networks become a part of our daily lives inevitably. We use both in communication and tracking information. Facebook is considered to be the most popular and widely used applications. Another application that is gaining popularity is LINE, which created in mid of 2010. LINE applications hit the market in Asia, rather than other zones, because of its ease of use and variety of capabilities. In 2017, Line is the most widely used social media application in Thailand. With increasing popularity of users, LINE can be modify to use as a tool in up-to-date teaching management. It is a way to communicate between teachers and learners. It is also an online learning channel. In this study, we examined the acceptance on LINE application in terms of using it for classroom-related activities of 51of industrial microbiology undergraduate students of Suan Sunandha Rajabhat university who enrolled in major subject. The collected data from the questionnaire were analyzed to search for factors that cause satisfaction or dissatisfaction. The results showed that students perceived the benefits of the LINE and had a positive attitude towards the use of the LINE. Students feel that the use of LINE is convenient, fast, and can respond quickly. The number of social networking sites that students are using had no relationship with intention to use. Students also introduces the LINE learning activities that they need. This study provide the useful of social application on education even subjects with experiments and understanding learners’ intention in using new technologies.

Title of paper: E-training tutorial for the enhancement of the clothing designer technical skills

Abstract: Creativity and diversity characterize the apparel industry because fashion trends and sophisticated consumer requirements determine rapid changes. A business in this field is competitive if it is capable of launching new models in a short time, if it can maintain or develop the customer network and if the rate between the price and the quality of the manufactured products is at an affordable level. In the clothing industry, it is a typical situation in manufacturing the same model of a garment from a base material with one color or with different motifs (freestyles or repetitive). On these terms, the designer has to know how to select and use various commands and functions from a CAD’s (clothing industry) to prepare the garment pieces for a marker-making. He or she must know how to take into consideration the material characteristics (the shape and the size of the motif, if it is repetitive or not) and the model features (the position of the motif on the piece surface and if the motif lines or colors continue on the sewed pieces). This paper presents the stages of how to prepare the parts of a fitted garment for a marker- making, a model manufactured from a base material with motives. This tutorial is suitable for the technicians who are working in the clothing design field with the aid of CAD’s functions and commands.

Title of paper: Didactic excel tool for the study of elastic hysteresis

Abstract: In this paper is described a didactic tool made with Excel spreadsheets for the study of elastic hysteresis. The input data used are the undeformed initial length of the elastic rubber band and the values of the band length in deformed state, corresponding to the values of the applied force. The facilities of the spreadsheet allow the approximate mathematical modeling of hysteresis by finding the proper interpolation functions of the experimental data. With the interpolation functions found, for the two branches of hysteresis, the energy dissipated in heat per the cycle of hysteresis was calculated. For this we have implemented the trapezoidal rule in the spreadsheet to evaluate the area delimited by the elastic hysteresis loop. Also, starting from the mathematical modeling of the hysteresis, we have graphically plotted the dependence of the first-order elastic constant on the applied force, at loading and at unloading. The use of spreadsheets in the study of the elastic hysteresis presents a series of advantages in the classroom with the students. Thus, by easily processing the data with the mathematical modeling tools in the spreadsheet, the students can take a first step in clarifying the difference between linear elasticity and nonlinear elasticity.

Title of paper: Opinions of Romanian medical doctors regarding classic versus online training on adaptogens

Abstract: Materials and methods. Medical doctors (MD) without adaptogens (AD) training, voluntarily responsed to a questionnaire with topics (T): T1 - importance of medical AD education; T2 - AD use in prevention and therapy; T3 - AD application in medical practice; T4 - AD use in stress; T5 - only classical AD training (CT); T6 - only online AD training (OT); T7 - combined classical and online AD training (COT); T8 - what AD themes would be indicated, as OT. This questionnaire was applied before (M1) and after (M2) presenting the benefits of an AD on-line program. Themes T5-T8 were applied also to M2.
Results. MD answers to M1: T1 - medical AD education is important and necessary; T2 - AD may be useful in prevention and therapy; T3 - they do not apply AD in their current medical practice; T4 - they would like to know more about AD use in stress; T5 - 49% preferred CT; T6 - 12% preferred OT; T7- 39% preferred COT; T8 - OT favorite themes, were theoretical. MD answers to M2: T5 - 17% preferred CT; T6 - 12% preferred OT; T7- 71% preferred COT; T8 - OT favorite themes, were both theoretical and practical ones.
Conclusions. 1) Assessed MDs have shown interest in AD training. 2) MD participants would like to use AD in stress. 3) Combined, classical and online training on AD, is the most preferred by MD. 4) MD opted for online training of theoretical and practical themes about AD.

Title of paper: Open-learning and e-portfolio versus classic-portfolio system for 1st year Medical Colleges students

Abstract: Background. New generations of students are much more accustomed to electronic communication systems and therefore hypothetically more adaptable to open-learning (OL).
Objective. The objective of the study was to evaluate how OL and e-portfolio (EP) versus classic-portfolio (CP) system are perceived by 1st year medical colleges students (MCS).
Materials and methods. 103 MCS voluntarily responded to a questionnaire with the topics: a) if they have heard of OL; where they found out about OL; if they have benefited from OL until then; if they have benefited from medical OL ; b) compared to CP (using the analogue visual scale) - how much they would prefer EP; how helpful in their preparation EP would be; how achievable EP would be; how much EP would improve teacher-student communication.
Results. Most participants didn’t hear about OL and didn’t benefit from OL but they woul like to know about OL. Compared to CP: most MCS would prefer the EP, consider that EP would be more useful in their preparation and much easier to achieve, and that EP could improve teacher-student communication.
Conclusions. 1. MCS participants do not presented necessary information to understand OL and had not previously benefited from OL. 2. MCS participants were interested in knowing OL and benefiting from it in their preparation. 3. MCS participants prefered EP to CP, which they considered more appropriate for their training. 4. Although it is still at the beginning in local medical education, OL and EP use raised the interest of MCS new generation.

Title of paper: Virtual solutions for industrial automation education

Abstract: This article presents a possible solution for the industrial automation professional formation: both in universities as well as in other types of educational environments. Most of the technical universities have included in their syllabus the topic of industrial automation. The reason of this inclusion is the very high demand from the industry for specialists with competences in this field.
The organization of such an educational topic requires several “must have” infrastructure: software and hardware. Even though the hardware for learning could be less complicated, is, nevertheless, expensive and many times out of the possibilities offered by university laboratories. One way to overcome this impediment is to use software simulators that include industrial installations. There are some companies that produce some simulation software, but this is very expensive, and it requires a lot of knowledge. Nevertheless, there is a solution that could help solution this situation. This is going to be presented in this article.
A different required infrastructure is the software for industrial automation. There are some solutions in the market. There are several commercial solutions as well as free ones. The companies are now more aware that if they want to sell their product, there has to be a way that the academic community has access to programming resources. Therefore, some of them create time limited software, restricted capacity as well as free available programs. Some of them will be covered in this article.
The conclusion in the article is a presentation of a possible solution for the laboratories' activities for industrial automation courses.

Title of paper: Robot simulators for university laboratory

Abstract: This article presents a possible solution for the robotic formation. Usually, these practical courses require the presence of a robot. There are many hobby solutions for robots that are available in different configurations with a large price distribution.
Most of the hobby robots are not similar to what is presently used in industry. Most of the industrial robots are “arm robot” while the hobby ones are mobile robots. The purpose of these types is different: the hobby robot has to help the hobbyist to learn programming and see the effect of his/her or her code while the industrial robot has to do repetitive hard work in an industrial environment.
Most of the industrial robots are very expensive and without the reach of many educational institutions. Therefore, they have to look for software simulator replacements. This article will emphasize few robot simulators that are available for education purposes.

Title of paper: Robot simulators for university laboratory

Abstract: The Internet has become a tool that is used by most of the active people daily. No doubt it is a very good tool for information, communication, entertainment, education, industry, etc.
There are some questions though about its unseen side effects on the younger and not so young users. Through this article, the author pretends to bring to the attention of software educators and users some of these side effects. The mere fact of discussing these topics will be helpful for the whole academic community.

Title of paper: Shaping Online Identity – Who, me?

Abstract: The paper aims to shape the perception of young Romanian users about the online identity they have in virtual environment. I present the results of a questionnaire-based survey searching for information about creating an online identity and their impact on real life, inquiring young persons, students or graduates who are Internet users. By doing so, I pursue not only to know the social status of Internet users, but also to make the young aware of the risks involved and to determine them to be more careful with managing online presence, all life long. The theme of this paper is in line with recent concern about how young people build their virtual activity, emphasizing the need for raising awareness and managing online identity by careful communication in virtual environment, especially for young persons either in education, graduates or searching for a job. Managing online identity, as a a two-edged weapon for security, reputation and competitive advantage of a person or organization is a complex process and not only relates to informational management but become more, a potential alternative to successful survival in the virtual environment as young employees or knowledge professionals.
