Play-Based Learning In The Classroom, Jenna Clark Apr 2020

Play-Based Learning In The Classroom, Jenna Clark

Senior Scholars Day

The purpose of this study was to observe the effects that play-based instruction and learning activities have on the classroom, and more specifically, my own teaching practices. This self study used qualitative methods to gather data. Predominantly, a developmental portfolio was used to record observational notes and for daily reflections. Memory work was also used as this study pulled from past experiences with play. Findings showed that play-based learning increased the inclusivity of the general education classroom and levels of student achievement and engagement also increased. The classroom became a positive environment for both the students and teacher, aiding in ...

Teaching The Power Of Pictures, Rachel Speranza Apr 2020

Teaching The Power Of Pictures, Rachel Speranza

KUCC -- Kutztown University Composition Conference

Though choosing sources that have specific copyright that allows for the reuse, modification, and redistribution of pictures is an important lesson for all students of all grade levels, what’s even a more important lesson is that of the power of social media. The perfect picture can spread like a wildfire across all social media platforms. Pictures have the power to change someone’s mood, political opinion, and even advocate for change on the other side of the world.

#37 - The Parental Involvement And K-12 Experiences Of Rise Students, Madison Rodriguez, Josue Zavala Nov 2019

#37 - The Parental Involvement And K-12 Experiences Of Rise Students, Madison Rodriguez, Josue Zavala

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

Most teachers across the United States self-identify as white American. The ethnic backgrounds of students and teachers is disproportionate due to the increasing diversity in the public school systems. Literature based on this topic has significantly increased in the past decade due to the mass migration of Latinos to the United States. For example, Soloranzo talks about the critical race theory in education and how it works towards the progression of teachers of color and eliminating racism in U.S. education (Soloranzo p.7). In order to address this problem, the UNG College of Education and Hall County School District ...

Student Leadership Exchange (SLX)

Prospective students across Illinois work excessively towards the achievement of getting accepted to the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy. Though the selection process of applicants is meant to be fair and only admit the most qualified students, it has been found that this process has its flaws. While GPA and SAT scores are factored into these decisions, additional factors such as geographic, gender, and ethnic criteria are involved. Measures such as Affirmative Action are put into place to ensure each student has a fair opportunity to education. However, one result of IMSA’s attempt to comply with its statutory requirement ...

10 - Embodied Composition Pedagogy, Amanda Ayers Nov 2018

10 - Embodied Composition Pedagogy, Amanda Ayers

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

This study evaluates the relevance and effectiveness of embodied composition pedagogies. The current literature argues the benefit of incorporating the body into the classroom, especially for racially marginalized students. Through literary analysis, three indicators of embodied pedagogy were identified: 1) discussion based learning, 2) multimodality, and 3) process oriented writing assessments. The methods for implementing embodied pedagogy can be identified by these indicators and evaluated for effectiveness. In spring 2019, I will begin the second phase of my research which will analyze applied embodied pedagogy in composition 1101 and 1102 classrooms. Through student surveys and professor interviews, the effectiveness of ...

How Do Curriculum And Pedagogy Impact Learner Wellbeing?, Alex J. Box Ms, Nicole M. Barnes Mrs

ICOT 18 - International Conference on Thinking - Cultivating Mindsets for Global Citizens

One of our concerns when approaching education, is the need to better recognise the impact that general curriculum and pedagogy have on student wellbeing. In addition to effective and explicit wellbeing programs, we believe that embedding authentic opportunities for local and global citizneship into the curriculum positively affects wellbeing. We believe that adopting the New Pedagogies for Deep Learning framework addresses student wellbeing and we unpack aspects of the model that do so, emphasising the role of global citizenship development.

What Is Gained And At What Cost? A Critical Co-Constructed Autoethnographic Study Examining National Identity From A Transnational Perspective., Stephanie Mccutcheon

Institute for Student Learning Assessment

The phenomenon of learning abroad will not diminish in an increasingly globalized economy and it is important to better understand the interconnectedness of relationships, benefits, and potential detriments in this growing area of education. This study is an exploration of conceptualizations of nationality in educational spaces from a transnational perspective. I create a co-constructed narrative with a transnational student that traverses the borders of two nations, while considering the relations and practices of her experiences in association to my own in order to better understand national identity formation as it is interconnected with formal and implicit curriculum.

The creation of this database provides an interactive site with information about research opportunities, conferences, scholarships, and a subscription system for students. We also discuss the challenges we face as we try to promote undergraduate research in an environment of limited ...


Flipping Online Instruction, Julie G. Alemany Sep 2016

Flipping Online Instruction, Julie G. Alemany

Florida Distance Learning Association Conference

Flipped model of instruction for online instruction is effectively being used by faculty in higher education. What is the flipped classroom? The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture elements of a course are reversed. Short video or recorded lectures are viewed by students before the online session. The online session is devoted to facilitating the knowledge, understanding, and discussion of the content. During online class sessions, instructors function as facilitators, encouraging students in individual inquiry. The online session time is focused on exercises, projects, and/or discussion.

Flipped classroom draws on such concepts as active ...

Teaching For Diversity And Equity: Scholarship And Practice, Elizabeth Mccormack, Esther Chiang, Jancy Munguia

Blended Learning in the Liberal Arts Conference

Research has shown that factors such as race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status can have a significant impact on a student’s ability to complete a college degree. As our classrooms become more culturally and experientially diverse, what can we as faculty do to ensure that all students have the opportunity to succeed? There is a growing body of research that identifies issues that low-income, first-generation, underrepresented minority, and international students face and describes tested strategies for helping students overcome them. Our goal in this workshop is share these findings with faculty and empower them to adapt and integrate relevant strategies ...


Incorporating Online Materials And Digital Learning/Assessing Tools Into Advanced Chinese Newspaper Reading And News Watching, Ying Wang, Lisha Xu May 2015

Incorporating Online Materials And Digital Learning/Assessing Tools Into Advanced Chinese Newspaper Reading And News Watching, Ying Wang, Lisha Xu

Blended Learning in the Liberal Arts Conference

This is the report of a year-long blended learning project designed for advanced Chinese newspaper reading and news video watching. In advanced Chinese learning, newspaper reading and news video watching are considered quite challenging for Chinese language learners for their formal style, large and time-sensitive vocabulary, and limited exposure through traditional ways of learning/teaching. To meet these challenges, we incorporated three blended learning components into the traditional language teaching/learning, including: online video news subtitling, the digital exercises and assessment system, and computerized vocabulary-learning modules tailored to the course materials used for two advanced Chinese classes. The project is ...
