The Application Of Multiple Intelligences In Two Year 7 Textile Technology Classes, Brianna Cameron, Gail Ormsby, Peter Kilgour Jan 2014

The Application Of Multiple Intelligences In Two Year 7 Textile Technology Classes, Brianna Cameron, Gail Ormsby, Peter Kilgour

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

In a teaching and learning environment that

embraces innovation, inclusion and effectiveness,

it is essential to acknowledge students’ individual

learning styles to promote optimum learning.

While multiple intelligences (MI) theory considers

students’ interest, it has been more often applied

in teaching mathematics, science and music

subjects. This study applied the theory of MI within

two year seven textile technology classes. Data

were collected from student group assessments,

surveys and daily engagement levels. The results

of the study show that groups whose members

shared similar MI reported having a more positive

experience than groups that were not specifically

MI assigned. Further ...

Fly'n'Don't Build: What We Learned From Our Study Of Development Projects In Nepal, Joshua Page

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

Everest. Sherpas. The world’s only nonquadrilateral

flag. The country? Nepal, of course.

The nine Avondale College of Higher Education

students who visited June 17 - July 15 learned

much more about this landlocked nation,

though. Rough roads ran beside raging rapids.

Patriarchy and entrenched poverty. The caste

system, the influence of climate change both

impacting a vulnerable but proud people fighting

for a better life.

The trip served as the practical component of one of

our international poverty and development studies

units. We’d previously completed other units in the

course and prepared extensively throughout first

semester for the trip ...

Faith Formation: Perceptions Of Primary And High School Students In Australian Adventist Schools, Beverly Christian, Peter Kilgour

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

Faith formation is a topic of considerable interest

for those involved in Christian education. In

this quantitative investigation, 580 students

from Years Four, Six, Eight and Ten from eleven

Adventist schools in Australian were surveyed

to determine their perspectives of their own

faith formation in four areas of their lives: Vision,

Gospel, Lordship and Presence. Additional items

measured student satisfaction with their Biblical

Studies classes. The results indicated that

students, on the whole, were positive about their

faith formation. Trends revealed that younger

students overall were more positive towards

their faith and Biblical Studies classes than high

Anytime Email And Work-Life Balance: An Exploration Into The Views Of Adventist Schools Australia Employees, Peter Williams, Warrick R. Long, Peter Morey Jan 2014

Anytime Email And Work-Life Balance: An Exploration Into The Views Of Adventist Schools Australia Employees, Peter Williams, Warrick R. Long, Peter Morey

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

Email has extended its reach beyond the

traditional workplace into the non-work hours

of employees, disrupting the work-life balance.

What was once ‘anywhere any time’ has

become ‘everywhere all the time’ (Mazmanian,

Orlikowski, & Yates, 2013). This study examines

the effects of email intrusion on work-life

balance from the perspective of a Christian

faith-based organisation, which has the

additional dimension of espousing a ‘healthy’

balance between work and life. A survey

of 500 employees of such an organisation,

attracting 208 respondents, found that nearly all

employees owned mobile devices that enable

them to access work email outside work time,

and that ...

Acceptability Of A School-Based Incentivised Physical Activity Intervention: The B-Active Program, Wendi Herman, Darren Morton, Ross Grant

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

The purpose of this study was to examine the acceptability to students, parents and teachers of a school-based intervention that incentivised students using prizes to be more physically active (the B-Active program). Three hundred and eighty-five children (54% boys, 46% girls) in Years 3 – 6 from five schools participated in the study. Six parents and three teachers were also interviewed about their perception of the B-Active program. Overall, the students enjoyed the B-Active program but the level of acceptability was lower for the parents and teachers. This study indicates that to increase acceptability, parents need to be well informed and ...

The Relationship Between School Climate And Student Bullying, Kevin Petrie Jan 2014

The Relationship Between School Climate And Student Bullying, Kevin Petrie

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

This study investigates the relationship between

student perceptions of school climate and self reported

bullying between students. Data were

collected from 604 students in 59 regular grade

5-6 classrooms, within 20 state schools in Victoria,

Australia. A significant negative relationship was

found between measures of positive school climate

and the prevalence of student peer bullying.

Implications for classroom teachers and school

administrators are discussed. The importance of

measuring and monitoring students’ involvement

in bullying and perceptions of school climate is

emphasised.


Research: What Potential Does It Hold For Teacher Practitioners?, Anthony Williams, Peter Kilgour Jan 2014

Research: What Potential Does It Hold For Teacher Practitioners?, Anthony Williams, Peter Kilgour

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

The teaching profession finds itself at the crossroads

at this time. because the crowded curriculum

and the emphasis on core competencies including

literacy and numeracy can have the tendency to push

research training into the background. The question

should be asked though, is research capability a skill

practicing teachers should be engaging with? Is

reconstructing the curricula of universities to make

research preparation a priority worth pursuing?

The following paper considers the issue of research

and what it can add to teacher practitioners’ “arsenal”

of capabilities. The authors believe that there is value

in reconsidering the curriculum of teachers, as ...
