In this lesson, learners use a Web-based customized version of ImageJ to investigate the properties of digital images as they relate to forensic science. Several images are taken from criminal evidence (ATM documents, license plates, etc.), but require image enhancement to reveal full detail. A set of micrographs of hair samples is also provided, and, after classifying and measuring the samples, students are able to identify the suspect most likely to have been at the crime scene.

Digital skill building assignments

This resource contains a series of 9 digital skill building assignments that were initially used in an online course of postsecondary students from a variety of disciplines. The assignments have a short description followed by an 'over to you' section, which asks students to either practice the skills or reflect on what the skills would mean for them. The assignments could be used in an online class, as a hands-on activity during a face-to-face course, or assigned for students to complete on their own time, outside of class.

EUROIN
Conditions of Use:

In Romanian universities, European Studies are traditionally focused on social and political sciences, economics, law or history, as well as international relations. Lately, EU aspects have increasingly been included in study areas that are not specifically related to the EU, and tailor-made courses on specific EU issues have been introduced that are relevant for graduates in their professional life.Unfortunately, only a few interdisciplinary modules have been developed over the last few years in Romanian universities. Therefore, West University of Timisoara (WUT) looks to the best ways of delivering the European dimension in all study programmes, by involving the use of new technologies and innovative teaching methods.Thus, the general aim of the proposed project is to integrate a short teaching programme about digital literacy (DL) into different European contexts, into curricula of different specialisations within WUT. The proposed module adopts innovative teaching methodologies based on Open Educational Practices (OEP), such as flipped classroom, MOOCs.

Educatie pentru cetatenie digitala / Digital Literacy and Citizenship in the 21st Century
Rating

Cetățenia digitală este un termen umbrelă utilizat pentru a descrie o serie de subiecte legate de accesul digital, utilizarea responsabilă a tehnologiei, alfabetizarea digitală financiară, amprentele digitale și chiar bunăstarea fizică și psihologică. Este clar că cetățenia digitală se poate manifesta în mai multe feluri, fiind considerată și abordată variat/în alte moduri de către diferiți oameni. Ceea ce este însă important este recunoașterea faptului că, pentru a progresa în noua societate/economie digitală, avem nevoie de cunoștințe și competențe noi, bazate pe era digitală. Sperăm ca modulul propus vine în întâminarea tuturor formatorilor cu o abordare modernă, reușind să facă dintr-un proces de specializare tehnică o experiență dinamică, eficientă și relevantă, pentru formarea unor generații de cetățeni responsabili și activi.
