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.
