Children with severe autism lack of the eye-body coordination skills which are needed to conduct aimed limb movements. Physical therapy relies on the repetition of limb movements that demands children with severe autism to aim for a visual target. But their movements during physical therapies are most of the time aimless, and they found the visual stimuli confusing and not engaging. Exergames could support motor therapies as they combine game technology with exercise activity. This technology can offer a natural interaction and use multisensory stimuli appropriate to keep children with autism focused during motor therapeutic interventions. In this paper, we hypothesize that exergames supporting motor therapeutic interventions and alleviating such attention and motor challenges could help children with severe autism to develop the necessary coordination skills needed to follow up visual targets. We present a 7-weeks evaluation study of the deployment of an exergame supporting the practice of eye-body coordination exercises. Seven children with severe autism and three psychotherapists participated in the study. Our results indicate children with severe autism maintained their attention for the total duration of the therapy, reduced their aimless limb movements and developed aimed limb movements, as a result of weeks of usage of the exergame. We close discussing challenges for existing clinical practice from a design and clinical point of view. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd

In this paper we will talk about an approach for online course publishing that has not been exploited totally, the creation of an education platform using cloud computing. This approach allows to see a new tool for its use as innovative educational technology. In the first instance, the rapid growth of social networks has proposed a tendency to create collaborative spaces, with no educational purposes, being the most common leisure and informative for its use. On appeal, cloud computing in recent years has demonstrated to have benefits that were not given with the traditional distribution of contents through the internet, it also allows to distribute information on distinct servers in distinct geographical areas, and having this way a system that is always available with no delays on content delivery. © 2015 IEEE.

This paper summarizes the theories, methods, and results of a doctoral research that integrated social media (SM) in a learning experience for students and explored the roles that information literacy, digital literacy, and new literacies played in such a learning experience. Participatory action research was the methodological approach used for two rounds of data collection, resulting in the development of the research framework ‘Doing Online Relearning through Information Skills’ (DORIS). The data collection methods used included students’ reports, diagnostic, and final questionnaires; and semi-structured interviews. Data analysis relied on content analysis, open coding, and constant comparative analysis. This paper provides a summary of the discussion leading to the answers to the research questions, including topics such as issues and challenges of using SM for learning; participants learning experiences in such a technologically mediated environment, their engagement and the mutual shaping of SM, learning experiences, and literacies. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.

Information Culture Development (ICD) is a holistic information literacy program that was established in 2013 and developed at CETYS Universidad in Mexico. ICD caters to all university stakeholders with different initiatives that are contained within ICD’s four axes: (a) curriculum and learning support, (b) information and digital literacies development, (c) research and scientific communication support, and (d) evaluation and communication of results. This article presents such initiatives and the instruments used to evaluate them. Moreover, it analyses recent interviews with eight academic staff that have known of and benefited from these initiatives, both for themselves and for their students. The data analysis offers a means of determining ICD’s role in supporting the development of an information culture and positively influencing teaching, learning and research practices in the university. Furthermore, academic staff insights help guide the program’s further development, by pointing toward the need for future actions and strategies. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.

The Gulf of California Large Marine Ecosystem (GoC-LME) is a long and narrow semi-enclosed body of water located entirely in Mexican territory, with a marine surface between 250,000 and 300,000km2 surrounded by 5 coastal states and 35 coastal municipalities. The population growth and economic development in the region are among the most dynamic in the country. Since 2006 the GoC-LME has been the subject of a regional ecological planning program. The approach followed in the planning process was a top-bottom one with a clear political will, a strong public participation process supported by scientific and technical information. The obtained results, methodologies, good practices and participatory processes were considered as a guide for other planning processes in Mexico. In general terms, the governance level in the GoC-LME is good at the federal scale but several challenges remain at state and county scales where the market pressures are higher and the human and economic capacities lower. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd.

Ocean and Coastal Management | Year: 2012

The coastal waters of the world respond and are vulnerable to a variety of natural and anthropogenic driven phenomena, many of which are linked to climate, climate variability and climate change. Long-term and large-scale flow interactions between ocean and atmosphere have been investigated for several decades; nevertheless their implications over the coastal zone have received much less attention from the scientific community in the coastal management arena. This paper identifies challenges inherent in addressing decadal to multidecadal ocean-atmosphere phenomena for coastal management practices. The understanding of these low-frequency signals, global teleconnections within the atmosphere and the ocean, climate variability and change are key issues to clarify their impacts over the coastal zone at regional level. To explore the importance of global natural climate variability in the long-term regional coastal planning and management this paper uses meteorological, agricultural and fishery data from the Mexican's coastal states of the Gulf of Mexico that shows multidecadal variability. Especially relevant for the implementation of regional long-term coastal management plans in the Mexican's states of the Gulf of Mexico are the North Atlantic Oscillation and Multidecadal Atlantic Oscillation. A critical finding of this study was that more research focused on the decadal and multidecadal behavior of global signals is required, to clarify their effects over the world's coastal zone, in order to attain a clear view of the natural processes to be addressed in the long term regional coastal management. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

This paper details the design and implementation of a simultaneous dual true random numbers generator using only one laser and a digital signal processing system with a DE0 Nano FPGA. We implemented the random generator in such a way that a vacuum optical field will exist in our system. Taking advantage of the inherently random nature of the field, simultaneously quadrature components are measured in order to generate a truly random voltage signal. Also, we used a dynamical system of statistical analysis to eliminate any residual component of direct current on output voltage signal due to an (unavoidable) optical power imbalance in the optical system that was implemented. Finally, were measured the parameters of the auto-correlation and bias probability with values of 0.00010, 0002, respectively, which means that our system can be considered as a true random sequence generator capable of producing two sequences in an independent manner with a bit rate of up to 25 MHz. © The author; licensee Universidad Nacional de Colombia.

On this article, we present a technique to detect photon number splitting (PNS) attacks in the quantum channel of a continuous variable-quantum key distribution system using weak coherent states with phase diffusion by means of the S-parameterized quasiprobability function of a quantum state in steady state. Such quasiprobability function is obtained with an optoelectronic Costas loop. We compare the performances of PNS attack systems considering in first place just the attenuation and then the attenuation with the vacuum noise added due to a spy system. © 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
