Globalization, Changing Demographics, And Educational Challenges In East Asia, Hannum Emily, Hyunjoon Park, Yuko Butler

Hyunjoon Park

In recent decades, globalization and regional integration have brought significant economic and demographic changes in East Asia, including rising economic inequality, growing population movements within and across borders, and the emergence or renewed geopolitical significance of cultural and linguistic minority populations. These trends have coincided with significant changes in family formation, dissolution, and structures. How have these changes played out in the diverse educational systems of East Asia? In what innovative ways are East Asian governments addressing the new demographic realities of their student populations? This volume offers a snapshot of key educational stratification issues in East Asian nations, and ...

Alienated Motherhood And The Quest For Certainty, Sue Ellen Henry 2009 Bucknell University

Alienated Motherhood And The Quest For Certainty, Sue Ellen Henry

Sue Ellen Henry

“Man (sic) who lives in a world of hazards is compelled to seek for security.”

-John Dewey, The Quest for Certainty

The age of “scientific motherhood” has dawned. Inundated and overwhelmed with the enormous stakes of new motherhood, contemporary mothers are likely to seek what little “certainty” there is in caring for newborns by relying heavily on “expert” texts and parenting advice books. This paper examines my first experience in new mothering and the false sense of security that emerged from my own “quest for certainty.” Following Dewey’s critique of a bifurcated view of knowledge and belief, this argument ...

The Effect Of Learning Management Systems On Student And Faculty Outcomes, Beth Rubin, Ron Fernandes, Maria Avgerinou, James Moore

Beth Rubin

This study examines the effects of interactive and learning structures enabled by different Learning Management Systems (LMS) on satisfaction and learner engagement in online courses. An LMS can support or hinder active engagement, meaningful connections between segments of the course, easy communication, and formative feedback by making it easier or more difficult for faculty to communicate course requirements, provide open-ended feedback, and place course elements that are used together contiguous to one another. This study compares sections of the same course, offered by the same instructors using the same course materials in at least two different LMSs. It examines whether ...

Mathematical Communication And Its Relation To The Frequency Of Manipulative Use., Karl Kosko, Jesse Wilkins 2009 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University

Mathematical Communication And Its Relation To The Frequency Of Manipulative Use., Karl Kosko, Jesse Wilkins

Karl W Kosko

Many studies on manipulatives describe communication in mathematics as a component for properly implementing manipulatives in the classroom. However, no empirical research is available to support this relationship. Secondary analysis of data collected by the National Center for Educational Statistics from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study was used to examine whether a relationship between students’ manipulative use and communication in mathematics learning exists. Correlational analyses found a significant relationship between students’ verbal and written communication and manipulative use.
