Abstract: "Technology in general, and computer-mediated communication (CMC) in particular, can only have a limited impact on education and ways of learning unless they are applied within an effective interpretive pedagogical framework. Socio-cultural theory offers one the most promising frameworks for educational technology, especially computer assisted language learning (CALL).This paper examines the main aspects of socio-cultural theory as an interpretive framework to enhance second language acquisition (SLA) that additionally provides flexibility for a range of learning expectations, styles, and approaches. A research study carried out at the University of Wollongong in Dubai (UoW in Dubai) featuring a collaborative academic writing and speaking project that was designed using socio-cultural principles, is described, and some possible educational implications are suggested."Please cite as: Owen, H.

VLSI System Design using Verilog gives you a knowledge about Veilog HDL and different styles of modelling such as Behavioural, Structural, Data flow, Gate level. Verilog, standardized as IEEE 1364, is a hardware description language (HDL) used to model electronic systems. It is most commonly used in the design and verification of digital circuits at the register-transfer level of abstraction. It is also used in the verification of analog circuits and mixed-signal circuits VLSI System Design Book Provides you a step by procedure for learning VLSI Design using cadence Incisive tool. This book gives you a through understanding of System design and VLSI Concepts using Incisive Enterprise Simulator- Product of Cadence Design Systems Incisive Enterprise Simulator Multi-language simulation fuels testbench automation, low-power, metric driven verification, and mixed-signal verification Incisive Enterprise Simulator (IES) provides the most comprehensive IEEE language support with unique capabilities supporting the intent, abstraction, and convergence needed to speed silicon realization. IES is the core engine for low-power verification working closely with Conformal LP, the digital engine for mixed-signal verification working with Virtuoso simulators, the testbench engine for simulation acceleration with Xtreme and Palladium, and the RTL engine working with TLM verification solutions
