It is possible to evaluate the effect of learning programming and controlling objectively by examinations. However, investigation the amount of knowledge on programming and controlling seems not to be enough because it only shows how much of knowledge is established to learners. Thus, this approach does not unveil what kinds of abilities are gained in(More)
This paper reports on a programming lesson using autonomous robots in junior high school. First, the design of the low cost circuit board for the lesson is described. The structure of a general programming language " Dolittle " which controls a robot is also explained. Then, we introduce lessons of manufacturing and controlling robots in " Information and(More)
This version includes the result of the examination measuring effect of the State-Based Squeak using middle school students. Abstract Robot programming often sparks students' interest in programming, but it is not easy for them to program both procedure and reactivity of robot movements that are essential requirements. In this study, we reviewed in detail a(More)
We are designing Web-based Dolittle programming environment. The current implementation of Dolittle runs as stand-alone application. In most schools with severely restrict the set of applications installed on their classroom PCs cannot use it. Therefore, we have started developing new implementation of Dolittle which runs " inside " of the Web browser.(More)
Auditory sensitivity based on auditory brain stem response (ABR), whole nerve action potential (AP), and cochlear microphonics (CM) to tone bursts of 0.5-8 kHz were compared with behavioral audiometry in the Japanese monkeys. Although sensitivity loss at 4-6 kHz was observed in these potentials, an increase in sensitivity at 8 kHz was obtained only in the(More)
