e-ScienceTalk D2.6 - Schools pack based on e-ScienceCity
- Public document
- e-ScienceCity is a learning environment that introduces the world of distributed computing research to high school students and undergraduates through a visually appealing interface. In order to provide some directed learning to encourage full use of the breadth and depth of learning provided by the website, e-ScienceTalk has produced the accompanying PDF document. This is a lesson plan that could be used by a teacher or instructor during a lesson on computing or general science, or an extracurricular club. www.e-ScienceCity.org is accessible from all browsers, and reduces overheads on client-side page rendering through the use of PHP scripts. To provide access to the website where no internet connection is possible or where connections are unreliable, a standalone version has been developed. This is available from http://www.e-sciencetalk.org/Documents/e-ScienceCity.zip Once downloaded and uncompressed by double-clicking on the file, the 26MB folder 'e-ScienceCity' can be distributed on a memory stick and copied to individual computers, or simply run from the stick. To open e-ScienceCity in your folder, simply navigate to the EN folder inside e-ScienceCity and double-click on index.html. The initial page should now open in your default web browser.
