The field of Quantum Science and Technologies (QST) has the potential to generate significant changes in every citizen’s lives, and so a carefully designed approach to its formal and informal education activities is essential. In this contribution, we reflect on the functions of outreach in developing the modern scientific mind, discuss its essential importance in the modern society of rapid technological development, and propose a novel framework, Culturo-scientific storytelling. In a manner consistent with Responsible Research Innovation, we propose tools to implement this narrative within the pilot project Quantum Technologies Education for Everyone (QUTE4E).

Sustainability-oriented innovation system analyses of Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Turkey and Singapore
Kılkış, Şiir (2016-09-01)
The coherency of research, development, and innovation processes are vital in promoting a more resource efficient society. Sustainability-oriented innovation systems define specific kinds of innovation systems, i.e. those that are directed to the aims of sustainable development. This paper develops an integrated method with four layers of analysis to evaluate the priorities and performances of such systems. The method is applied to a sample of emerging and innovation based economies, namely Brazil, Russia, ...
Mediated Effects of Technology Competencies and Experiences on Relations among Attitudes Towards Technology Use, Technology Ownership, and Self Efficacy about Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge
Yerdelen-Damar, Sevda; Boz, Yezdan; Aydin-Gunbatar, Sevgi (2017-08-01)
This study examined the relations of preservice science teachers' attitudes towards technology use, technology ownership, technology competencies, and experiences to their self-efficacy beliefs about technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK). The present study also investigated interrelations among preservice teachers' attitudes towards technology use, technology ownership, technology competencies, and experiences. The participants of study were 665 elementary preservice science teachers (467 fema...
Fom machine house to smart home: the relationship between technology and private sphere throughout the 20th century
Günlü, Esra; Börekçi, Naz Ayşe Güzide Z.; Department of Industrial Design (2007)
This study is an attempt for providing a socio-historical perspective to the smart home concept that is a proposal for the future domestic sphere by the application of intelligent technologies. For achieving this attempt, the smart home is investigated with its roots within the social history of domestic technology, by posing the question of a relation between the machine house idea of modern architecture and the smart home concept as the main question of the research. After an inquiry on the smart home con...
Direct perception of traversibility affordance on range images through learning on a mobile robot
Uğur, Emre; Şahin, Erol; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
In this thesis, we studied how physical affordances of the environment, such as traversibility for a mobile robot, can be learned. In particular, we studied how the physical properties of the environment, as acquired from range images obtained from a 3D laser scanner mounted on a mobile robot platform, can specify the traversibility affordance. A physics based simulation environment is used during exploration trials, where the traversibility affordances and the relevant features for each behavior are learne...
Analysis of electronic signature in Turkey from the legal and economic perspectives and the awareness level in the country
İskender, Gökhan; Koçyiğit, Altan; Department of Information Systems (2006)
As in the case of other information technologies, the best way of obtaining efficient results from electronic signature application is integrating it to the legal and economic systems and increasing the awareness level of technology in the society. This thesis performs the legal and economic analyses of electronic signature in Turkey and measures the awareness level in the society. The analyses performed in the thesis show that electronic signature is not legally established in Turkey even the legal base is...
