Computers increasingly are prevalent in the classroom, with student laptops becoming the norm, yet some beneficial uses of this widespread technology are being overlooked. Speech recognition software is maturing, and possesses the potential to provide real-time note taking assistance in the classroom, particularly for deaf and hard of hearing students. This(More)
Computing education has permeated virtually all disciplines, expanding learning with new technology and an updated definition of literacy that includes computational thinking. As opportunities for multidisciplinary courses that include computing increase, so do the challenges placed on faculty to develop such courses and the required computing expertise(More)
Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is achieving widespread acceptance in a variety of enterprise systems, due to its inherent flexibility and inter-operability, improving upon the more tradition and less supportable " stovepipe " approach. The high degree of concurrency and both synchronous and asyn-chronous communications inherent in SOA makes it a good(More)
– The emerging National Healthcare Information Network (NHIN) is intended to improve the efficacy, efficiency, and safety of healthcare. At the same time, Service Oriented Architectures (SOAs) are rapidly becoming an accepted means of providing network information exchange across a heterogeneous fabric of node, and may be suitable for a next-generation(More)
This project tries to provide a clarified and comprehensive understanding of the computing disciplines that allows shared experiences and expertise within and across the community. This collective sharing enables computing faculty to collaborate with other disciplines that use computing to enhance groups, and to create new cross-disciplinary areas of study(More)
Computer science educators are uniquely positioned to promote greater awareness of Green Computing, using the academic setting to encourage environmentally conscious use of technology. This paper reports on practical techniques that can engage faculty and students, enabling Green Computing to be integrated into the classroom and research laboratory.(More)
Computer component fabrication is approaching physical limits of traditional photolithographic fabrication techniques. An alternative computer architecture may be enabled by the rapidly maturing field of nanotechnology, and consist of nano-mechanical computational machines similar to those first proposed by Eric Drexler, or other nanoscale components. In(More)
As the need for multidisciplinary computing education continues to increase, consideration for distributed expertise will become critical to implementing a successful curriculum. A model of cooperative expertise is presented in which faculty maintain responsibility for their own course, creating and evaluating assignments for their students that support(More)
We tested the feasibility and effectiveness of an alcohol counseling intervention delivered via personalized text messages for college students with problem alcohol use. College students aged 18-23 completed online substance use and mental health questionnaires that served as a screening tool for problem alcohol use. We invited students who screened(More)
Adolescent substance use is a developmentally contingent social practice that is constituted within the routine social-environment of adolescents' lives. Few studies have examined peer networks, perceived activity space risk (risk of substance use at routine locations), and substance use. We examined the moderating influence of peer network characteristics(More)
