International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education

International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education
http://www.springerlink.com/content/1573-1774/

The objective of this journal is to publish original, fully peer-reviewed articles on a variety of topics and research methods in both science and mathematics education. The journal welcomes articles that address common issues in mathematics and science education and cross-curricular dimensions more widely. Specific attention will be paid to manuscripts written by authors whose native language is not English and the editors have made arrangements for support in re-writing where appropriate. Contemporary educators highlight the importance of viewing knowledge as context-oriented and not limited to one domain. This concurs with current curriculum reforms worldwide for interdisciplinary and integrated curricula. Modern educational practice also focuses on the use of new technology in assisting instruction which may be easily implemented into such an integrated curriculum. The journal welcomes studies that explore science and mathematics education from different cultural perspectives.

WiredReach – Powering the User Centric Web
http://www.wiredreach.org/

WiredReach is a universal content sharing platform built on Eclipse RCP, JXTA, RDF, RSS and XMPP. The term “content” is very loosely defined and can include things like presence, blogs, bookmarks, documents, calendars, music, photos – virtually any type of social media that can be shared with others. All content metadata is stored as RDF and synchronized using RSS over a P2P (JXTA) or HTTP connection. Out of the box, WiredReach provides a scalable and secure P2P messaging infrastructure, a persistent RDF datastore, an embedded web server, and a highly customizable UI framework that can support both SWT and HTML/AJAX based pages. WiredReach is licensed under the Eclipse Public License (EPL) and following the Eclipse model, everything in WiredReach is packaged as a plug-in – making it infinitely extensible.

StikiPad – Collaboration Tool
http://www.stikipad.com/

There’s a lot of ways to describe what StikiPad is. Officially, it’s a hosted wiki provider that lets you collaborate online – unofficially, it’s a blank piece of paper where you decide its use. StikiPad is written completely in Ruby on Rails and utilizes technologies such as AJAX to increase usability within the StikiPad interface. They host StikiPad in a private datacenter to maximize security of your data, and take many precautions to ensure your data is never compromised. Where StikiPad differs from regular wikis is in the features and its easy administration. Whether or not you’ve used a wiki before doesn’t matter – if you can use a word processor and e-mail files, you’ll be able to use StikiPad.
