Auditing Canadian Curricula For The Prevalence Of Personal-Finance Related Terms Using Text-Frequency And Distant-Reading Software Tools, Wes Armstrong Mr. Mar 2019

Auditing Canadian Curricula For The Prevalence Of Personal-Finance Related Terms Using Text-Frequency And Distant-Reading Software Tools, Wes Armstrong Mr.

Western Research Forum

This quantitative research study explores each set of provincial curriculum documents (save for Quebec) for the frequency of user-selected personal-finance based terms. The data from each province is compared and examined to answer: which provincial curriculum mentions user-selected personal-finance terms most frequently; how many words/pages are between each term mention, and how many personal-finance terms appear in the top 500 words in each curriculum. The research found that Prince Edward Island’s curriculum documents contained the most searched-for terms (at least one mention). Further, money (British Columbia and Newfoundland) and entrepreneur (Nova Scotia) are the only two searched-for personal-finance ...

ABSTRACT

EXPLORATORY STUDY OF A SCHOOL-BASED REFUGEE

MENTAL HEALTH PROJECT

Anne Marie Boose, Ed.D.

University of Nebraska, 2018

Advisor: Kay A. Keiser, Ed.D.

Immigrant and refugee youth are in our schools in greater numbers than ever. Educators are required to educate all students to the same standards, even though they have often been exposed to violence and other difficulties throughout their journey to a new home. Many continue to face many on-going barriers as they arrive in our schools. Although this population is resilient and has many strengths, for some the burden of trauma is overwhelming, threatening their ...

Summer Camp And Experiential Learning – A Qualitative Study Exploring The Perspectives Of Selected Participants, Living In Poverty, While Attending A Sleep-Away Summer Camp In Northern Minnesota, Mary Achelpohl

Student Research and Creative Activity Fair

Summer breaks vary in length and depth of experiences for many children and families. The summer learning gap has been widely researched as problematic to the cognitive, social, and emotional development for many children, especially children living in poverty. At the same time, best practices in summer learning initiatives have a narrow research scope. This qualitative phenomenological research study explores participants’ perceptions of their time at a sleep-away summer camp in Northern Minnesota. All participants were living in poverty during their time at summer camp. A major focus will examine summer learning opportunities and the importance of creating experiences for ...

Priming The Pump: Does Providing Information Before A Crisis Communications Simulation Provide A Better Learning Experience?, Matt Tidwell Jan 2019

Priming The Pump: Does Providing Information Before A Crisis Communications Simulation Provide A Better Learning Experience?, Matt Tidwell

International Crisis and Risk Communication Conference

Many crisis communications educators use simulations as a means for students to test their learning in a controlled environment meant to simulate a real-life crisis using an (often hypothetical) organization. This project explores whether providing background and historical information about the organization days or weeks in advance of the simulation can enhance learning. Survey results of students exposed to this method as well as a traditional scenario approach (where all information is provided at once) showed that students preferred the advanced exposure method. The learning experience was judged to be superior overall. In addition, the recognition of understanding risks as ...

Engaging The Public Through Science Festivals, Anthony Sacchitello, Macey Jarrard

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

Science festivals are informal learning experiences intended to engage the community in science by facilitating dialogues between scientists and the public. While the intention is to connect the community to science professionals, little is known about attendee motivation and application of information gained at the event. The study documented science festival attendees (n=42) motivation, application of information intent, events attended, and topics learned about at events. 39% of attendees attended science talks with an expert that was also in the attendee’s area of expertise, nearly one-third of participants attended discussion panels, and 20% of recorded activities were hands-on ...

Study Abroad For Transformational Learning Opportunities To Build Cultural Intelligence, Nicholas Tran Oct 2018

Study Abroad For Transformational Learning Opportunities To Build Cultural Intelligence, Nicholas Tran

Undergraduate Research Symposium - Prescott

Recent research points to questions on the value for students studying abroad while in college. Our conceptual paper links the transformative learning theory to the three dimensions of cultural intelligence to highlight the value of study abroad to provide life-changing learning opportunities. Through disorienting dilemmas and a process of cultivating critical reflection, study abroad students will generate new meaning schemes, or “habits of the mind” to view the world. In addition to critical reflection, the role of emotions plays a critical role in the development of self-awareness. These transformational learning experiences interconnect with the three-dimensional model of cultural intelligence through ...


Digital Storytelling: A New Approach To Boost Information Literacy In First-Year Writing Courses, Yvonne B. Wichman Sep 2018

Digital Storytelling: A New Approach To Boost Information Literacy In First-Year Writing Courses, Yvonne B. Wichman

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

While the principles of rhetoric have changed little over the ages, the methods of delivery have changed, and at the heart of this evolution is modern technology. Traditional-age college students, ages 18 to 25, are part of the iGeneration. Rarely, do we see students walking around our campuses without some sort of technology in their hands. Be it an iPod or iPhone, today’s students are plugged in.

Clearly, the dissemination of information is moving from textual to visual, which means that students must learn to view visual and aural information in the same way that they view the printed ...

Recess Preparation And Reflection For Supporting Social Connectedness, Elizabeth Teasdale Wells Apr 2018

Recess Preparation And Reflection For Supporting Social Connectedness, Elizabeth Teasdale Wells

Scholarly & Creative Works Conference 2019

This project examines the effects of how recess preparation and reflection can be focused on providing students an opportunity to connect socially and strengthen overall happiness. By investigating the role social satisfaction plays in a child’s life during recess, educators may gain knowledge about how to foster social connectedness for every child. While most studies about recess focus on a child’s level of physical activity or negative behaviors, researchers have yet to investigate recess as a place to improve a child’s well-being and social satisfaction. This study was conducted at an elementary school through qualitative interviews and ...


Course Designing With Maps, Marsha Beal Mar 2018

Course Designing With Maps, Marsha Beal

Andrews University Teaching and Learning Conference

According to the Chicago Center for Teaching, “planning a course is arguably the key ingredient in pedagogical success.” A great metaphor for course design is like planning a trip to some place you have never gone before. To get there efficiently, a good road map is a must; because without one the driver may end up there eventually but not without detours and missed directions. The great news for teachers is that there are many (20+) instructional design “maps” called models. The ADDIE, Kirkpatrick, and SAM models are three of those models. This session will give an overview of each ...


The Impact Of Trauma On Development And What Educators Do About It, Jennifer Etesse Herring Mar 2018

The Impact Of Trauma On Development And What Educators Do About It, Jennifer Etesse Herring

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

Abstract

Educators, policy makers and scholars in the field of education across the country are engaging in conversations about the importance of effective support in schools for female survivors of sexual assault. The purpose of this conference submission is to present a workshop of current school approaches to students overcoming sexual trauma.

According to Gresham (2007), students who present with academic and behavioral challenges (including girls traumatized by sexual assault) have historically been referred to Special Education programming within the school without actually addressing their needs. According to Chafouleas, Johnson, Overstreet, and Santos (2016) “...contemporary school-based efforts have moved away ...


Action Research And Teacher Voice: A Pathway For Transforming Our Schools Into Learning Organizations, Susan Inman Mar 2018

Action Research And Teacher Voice: A Pathway For Transforming Our Schools Into Learning Organizations, Susan Inman

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

Our PreK-12 schools face increasing complexities such as accountability, diversity, closing the achievement gap, and working in an era of standards-based reform (Drago-Severson, 2009). The purpose of this inquiry was to understand teachers’ experiences with one type of learning experience, action research, and to investigate the impact of this experience on the teachers’ practice and voice. Three research questions guided this inquiry:

  • What are the experiences teachers have as they utilize the action research process?
  • How do teachers find that their experiences with action research impact their practice?
  • What connections are there between the action research process and teacher voice ...

Fostering Student Engagement, Skills, And Connections Through Peer Review/Critique Across Disciplines, Jesse W. Schoaf, Summer Clark, Liv Cummins, Lisa Spitz, Katarina Keown, Linda Pursley, John Mccormick

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

The process of peer review/critique in the college classroom is rife with challenges which may stem from a lack of commitment on the part of students and instructors alike, despite a significant body of literature which suggests peer review/critique can be an important learning tool. Studies demonstrate, when students are committed to the process, peer review can improve myriad skills, including written work (Topping, 1998, Mulder et al, 2014) and collaborative and communication skills (Topping, 2000, Topping, 2009, Mulder, R., Pearce, J., & Baik, C., 2014, Nicol, 2010), among many others. Our action research study documents how four undergraduate ...

Click Here: Externship Data Management Tools To Increase Productivity (And Promote Sanity), Jodi S. Balsam, Lauren N. Donald, Carolyn Young Larmore, Sarah Shalf

Externships (X) Conferences

The most significant challenge externship programs face is “insufficient administrative support,” followed closely by “other demands on the faculty’s time,” according to the CSALE survey. And the pressure is only getting worse. The increased record keeping requirements of Standard 304(c), increased student participation due to the ABA’s 6-credit experiential learning requirement and new paid externship positions, plus the ever-present pressure of tight budgets, together are driving the need to find innovative approaches to these mounting administrative burdens.

For many of us, the answer to these challenges is finding online data management tools that can manage vast amounts ...
