Media, Culture, And Education: One Teacher’S Journey Through The Mediated Intersections, Crystal L. Beach Aug 2015

Media, Culture, And Education: One Teacher’S Journey Through The Mediated Intersections, Crystal L. Beach

Journal of Media Literacy Education

Today’s classrooms often have a plethora of new ways of reading and writing entering the room, but too often these new ways of “doing” are disregarded and checked at the door. For this reason, one educator shares her journey through the mediated intersections of media, culture, and education. In this piece, she explores how literacy transformations are impacting her classroom and her students’ lives, how she tries to make connections for her students, as well as noting what these mediated intersections might mean for the future of education.

Classroom Learning Assessment Interpretation In Journalism And Mass Communication In Higher Education: A Focus On Andragogy In Radio/ Television/ Film Production, Eric U. Dogini

Clark Atlanta University Faculty Publications

Social scientists, instructors and institutions use classroom-learning assessment to measure attitudes, behaviors, emotions and personalities. Whatever the focus and format, the basic purpose of classroom assessment is to determine what learner’s want and educators need to improve learning. This study explored the conflicting notion that the most dominant form of instruction in higher education is pedagogy, referred to as traditional or teacher-directed study. Andragogy is the competing idea in terms of instructing adult learners and recently has gathered momentum. This study argued that the concept of assessment in radio/television/film production courses in higher education depends on reliability ...

An Investigation Of Teacher Librarians' Use Of Interactive Whiteboard Technology For Literacy Instruction, Judith Carroll Stanton

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

Although school systems have made investments in technology with the intention of raising student scores on state and national tests, improvements in student achievement have not always followed. The purpose of this study was to investigate teacher librarians' use of interactive whiteboards to improve student literacy. This qualitative case study was guided by the theory of social constructivism, wherein individuals learn through interaction with peers and knowledgeable others. The research questions were focused on how teacher librarians integrated multi-literacies and technological skills into pedagogical goals. Data were collected from a 4-member focus group interview, a questionnaire delivered to a subset ...

While emerging technologies continue to emerge, research into their use in learning contexts often focuses on a subset of educational practices and ways of using technologies. In this study we begin to explore the extent to which educational designs are influenced by larger societal and education-related factors not usually explicitly considered when designing or identifying technology-supported education experiences for research study. We examine patterns within and between factors via a content analysis across ten years and 19 different journals of published peer-reviewed research on technology-supported writing. Our findings have implications for how researchers, designers, and educators approach technology-supported educational design ...
