Metadata Records Translation: The Case of The Portal to Texas History

Date: 2011
Creator: Chen, Jiangping; Ding, Ren & Jiang, Shan
Description: Article discussing metadata records and translation. Abstract: In this paper, performance of online translation systems including Google, Systran and Bing on translating metadata records derived from the digital library- Portal to Texas History- is manually evaluated using four measures: Fluency, Adequacy, Incorrect Translation, and Missing Translation. The authors propose exploring multi-engine machine translation for improving the quality of translation and point out three possible strategies of implementing multilingual information access in digital libraries applying machine translation of metadata records.

Copyright and Fair Use: An Issue of Ethics in a Changing Learning Environment

Copyright and Fair Use: An Issue of Ethics in a Changing Learning Environment

Date: 2004
Creator: Allen, Jeff M.; Elleven, Russell K.; Andrews, Charles G.; Cox, Lynne Cagle & Clem, Karen E.
Description: This article discusses copyright issues. Abstract: Copyright infringement is one of the most talked about, yet most misunderstood topics in the curriculum and instructional development areas. The field of copyright protection is fraught with gray areas that undermine an individual's honest ability to discern what might be lawful uses of copyrighted materials. This article begins with a brief history of copyright law in the U.S. and provides examples, references, and discussion of "fair use." Additionally, issues related to the Internet are addressed, including: Web Linking, Framing, Plagiarism, Web-based referencing. Finally, considerations and suggestions for teaching and using ethical practices in the industrial and educational classroom are discussed. Fair use and copyright in educational institutions is largely an ethical issue. Ethics are not dependent on individual's actions. All parties involved must contribute to the ethical nature of an event and must accept both the responsibility for their actions or their non-actions.

How should school districts train teachers of career and technical education to teach in the information age? How will the efficacy of technology implementation in career and technical education be measured? What trends should drive changes in career and technical education?

The Challenges of Training and Retraining Mature Learners

The Challenges of Training and Retraining Mature Learners

Date: 1998
Creator: Ennis-Cole, Demetria & Allen, Jeff M.
Description: This article discusses challenges in training mature learners. Abstract: By 2005, older workers are projected to comprise 20 percent of the workforce (Barber, Crouch, & Merker, 1992). AT&T, General Electric, McDonalds, Traveler's Insurance, and Days Inn are just a few of the many companies that have already implemented older worker training programs to better utilize this growing older workforce (Hale, 1990; McNaught, 1994). Moloney and Paul (1992) suggest that updating older workers' skills cost less than hiring new graduates. Inter-generational secondary classroom and other retraining facilities must begin to prepare for the expected workforce of the future. In addition, vocational special needs educators must be aware of the special needs of the older learner associated with the aging process. This article explores the aging process from physical, cognitive, social and psychological perspectives, accommodations for age related changes, retraining mature learners, adaptations of the classroom environment, training technology issues, and successful corporate retraining programs to better prepare vocational educators for the workforce of the new millennium.
