This research presents a project with secondary school students and it draws mostly on what characterizes learning when students are exposed to Critical Thinking Tasks, the classes in which the research took place were intervened through different tasks which are mostly based upon Anderson s Taxonomy on Critical Thinking. This study was undertaken by pre-service teachers from Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas and besides looking at the effects of implementing the usage of Critical Thinking Skills in the classroom, this research aimed to develop the learning of English as a Second Language. Furthermore throughout the study we were able to notice how students developed their own ideas about the world they live in and at the same time they were focusing on the language learning as well.
This study used a mixed method research model based on a quasi-experimental research design. In this design, two groups, divided on their individual cognitive style (field dependence/ field independence), interacted with the same desktop VR treatment of a crime scene. An extreme-group design was used to assign subjects to the two cognitive style groups based on their Group Embedded Figures Test (GEFT) scores. Gender, years of law enforcement experience, and levels of computer experience were self-reported by subjects. Navigational behaviors in the virtual environment were recorded through observation and Camtasia 6.0 screen capture software for quantitative and qualitative analysis of differences. Configurational or survey knowledge acquisition was measured by having subjects draw a crime scene sketch from memory, after they had completed interacting with the VR treatment. The sketches were assessed independently by three crime scene experts, and quantitative measures of inter-judge reliability were calculated.
This book is an attempt to make people understand the changing values among the young undergraduate female teenagers on various issues and challenges of Education, marriage system and family affairs. Here is an original work of an author which aimed to know the perceptions of female teenagers on selected components.

Advanced Computer Architecture have therefore always been integral parts of Studying the computer architecture. Besides, courses on these subjects are of recent origin in undergraduate engineering disciplines. Studying the architecture, organization and use of the newest general purpose (micro)processors currently on the market, and the latest research developments in computer architecture. Architectures exploiting instruction-level parallelism (ILP), data-level parallelism (DLP), thread-level and task-level parallelism are treated.The book presents the concepts and methods of computer architectures, which help engineer to arrive at the most appropriate solutions to Studying the architecture.
In this real world, many public or open areas are facilitates with cameras at multiple angles to monitor the activities in that area for keeping human safe. This is a very growing research area of computer vision. In order to support this surveillances system, an object detection and tracking over consecutive video frames, is developed. The goal of this book is to provide a detailed overview with algorithm which will be able to detect and track the moving object to monitor their activity in consecutive video frames. Here we have taken two video sequences.

It is generally accepted that inclusive education will be the norm in mainstream schools over the next few years as a result of increasingly straightforward federal laws. To attain an appropriate annual development that suits all students regardless of their different abilities, inclusion must be planned and implemented adequately. Research has proven that a major component of successful and convenient inclusion is the degree of understanding of roles and responsibilities held by different stakeholders, in particular, the clear delineation of responsibilities of general education classroom teachers as well as special education teachers´ ones. The purpose of this case study is to scrutinize the responsibilities of three Cycle 1 schools´ regular classroom teachers and special education teachers and also the extent of collaboration between both parties regarding inclusive education in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE). The study explores the teachers´ attitudes, knowledge and skills that affect the progression of inclusive education in UAE.
