The prevalence** of all bilateral sensorineural hearing impairments of at least 40 dB HL was assessed by a retrospective ascertainment study to be about 1.2 children per 1000 births per annum, over the period 1983-1988. This prevalence was highly variable over year and region of the study. For all profound (at least 95 dB HL) impairments, the prevalence was(More)
We discuss a study conducted during a summer program for middle school girls that emphasized possible future careers that rely on computer technology. During the weeklong camp middle school girls created an original computer project, visited campus computer labs and listened to invited speakers - all with computer technology as the central theme.

Advances in technology are leading high schools to update computer science curricula; however there has been little analogous attention to technology-related education in middle schools. Middle school students are at a critical phase in life, when they are exploring more custom education options and starting to wonder “What do I want to be when I(More)
A partially distributed team is a virtual team, in which two or more co-located subteams use communication technology to collaborate across distance. Due to factors such as globalization and mergers, an increasing number of IT projects are conducted in partially distributed teams (PDTs). However, students lack experience in how to work effectively in such(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated that time constrained tasks lead to an increase in the physiological stress response and that elevated stress levels lead to poorer performance (Wahlstrom et al, 2002) (Clark et al, 1998). It remains unknown whether the practice of professors reminding students of remaining time on examinations could be leading to poorer(More)
For many students summer technology programs are more than a way to ‘get out of the house for the day’. It is the chance to learn new skills, explore unusual subjects and have fun. The choice of summer program by a middle school student can provide an initial spark of interest in future school work or careers. In this paper, a summer program for middle(More)
