Using Social Media As A Tool For Learning: A Multi-Disciplinary Study, Julie A. Delello, Rochell R. Mcwhorter, Kerri M. Camp Dec 2014

Using Social Media As A Tool For Learning: A Multi-Disciplinary Study, Julie A. Delello, Rochell R. Mcwhorter, Kerri M. Camp

Rochell McWhorter

In order to explore the rich dynamics of using social media as a tool for learning within higher education classrooms, researchers across three disciplines: education, human resource development (HRD), and marketing, joined forces seeking ways to focus on learning through a retrospective analysis. Three concepts—engagement, community building, and personal meaning formed the framework for this study and were utilized to analyze the themes that emerged from student reflections. This study used an exploratory mixed-method approach involving seven social media platforms: Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Second Life, and Skype. The research is unique because it not only looks at ...

"I Want To Do More And Change Things": Reframing Cte Toward Possibilities In Urban Education, Korina Jocson Dec 2014

"I Want To Do More And Change Things": Reframing Cte Toward Possibilities In Urban Education, Korina Jocson

Korina Jocson

This article addresses the discourse on career and technical education (CTE) from a multiperspectival approach to challenge the persisting academic-vocational divide. The author illustrates the paradoxical rhetoric in CTE, then shares a personal experience, and draws on ethnographic research to reveal a different understanding of enabling human capacity to support racially and culturally minoritized youth. In the end, the author suggests that a push beyond the language of investment and skills embedded in educational reform becomes all the more important in preparing youth for the future. Implications for practice, research, and policy toward possibilities in urban education are also discussed.

New Media Literacies As Social Action: The Centrality Of Pedagogy In The Politics Of Knowledge Production Dec 2014

New Media Literacies As Social Action: The Centrality Of Pedagogy In The Politics Of Knowledge Production

Korina Jocson

In this article, the author illustrates the blurring of lines of youth cultural production and participatory politics from the perspective of new media literacies. Drawing on design-based action research, the author discusses pedagogical considerations in the conceptualization of new media literacies in a semester-long course that culminated in inquiry-based social action projects created by university students in the urban Midwest. Noteworthy in the course was an emerging ethos developed through collaboration, participation, and distributed expertise leading to the production of video documentaries and interactive websites. New media literacies served as core cultural competencies and social skills in a new media ...


Meeting The Needs Of Chinese English Language Learners At Writing Centers In America: A Proposed Culturally Responsive Model, Crystal Machado, Peizhen Wang Dec 2014

Meeting The Needs Of Chinese English Language Learners At Writing Centers In America: A Proposed Culturally Responsive Model, Crystal Machado, Peizhen Wang

Crystal Machado

This paper describes the ways in which Writing Centers (WC) currently serve English Language Learners (ELL) at American universities. The authors argue that the pedagogy offered at these centers does not always meet the needs of the Chinese ELLs who make up the largest population of ELLs at American universities. The proposed supplemental model they recommend, which is grounded in Culturally Responsive Pedagogy (CRP), has the potential to better meet the needs of Chinese ELLs. The authors identify obstacles to successful implementation of the proposed model and ways in which these, and gaps in research, can be addressed by directors ...


Making Sense Of Amateurism: Juxtaposing Ncaa Rhetoric And Black Male Athlete Realities, Collin D. Williams Jr. Dec 2014

Making Sense Of Amateurism: Juxtaposing Ncaa Rhetoric And Black Male Athlete Realities, Collin D. Williams Jr.

Collin D. Williams, Jr., Ph.D.

In the 1980s, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) passed several eligibility rules to address concerns about the academic and personal development of its participants (Gaston-Gayles, 2009). Despite garnering publicity, fostering school pride, providing entertainment, and generating billions of dollars in revenue for the Division I institutions they attend, student-athletes are prevented from receiving compensation beyond athletic scholarships by the NCAA’s amateurism principle. Consequently, the ethical question at the center of college sports is: how do participants benefit from the college experience relative to their non-sport peers? While the NCAA typically reports benefits, research that disaggregates the data by ...

The Dynamic Ecology Of The Writing Process And Agency: A Corpus-Based Comparative Case Study Of Stancetaking Among Native Speakers And Non-Native Speakers Of English In First-Year Composition Conferences, Kirk Marshall Wilkins Dec 2014

The Dynamic Ecology Of The Writing Process And Agency: A Corpus-Based Comparative Case Study Of Stancetaking Among Native Speakers And Non-Native Speakers Of English In First-Year Composition Conferences, Kirk Marshall Wilkins

Kirk Marshall Wilkins

While previous research into writing conferences and tutorials has found that sessions with non-native speakers of English (NNSs) differ from those with native speakers of English (NSs), these studies using conversation analysis have tended to approach conferences through more qualitative methodologies. This thesis builds upon and enriches these previous studies by incorporating more of a quantitative analysis through the use of corpus linguistics to systematically analyze the frequency with which particular grammatical devices that express the attitude of the speaker, otherwise known as stance, and power are used and how these frequencies may vary within a specific set of NS ...

Civil Society Education: International Perspectives, Roseanne Mirabella , Johan Hvenmark, Ola Segnestam Larsson

Roseanne Mirabella

Over the last few decades, the world has experienced an unprecedented growth in the size and scope of civil society organizations (Boli & Thomas, 1999; Kaldor, Moore, & Selchow, 2012).1 On par with these developments is the ever increasing significance of what these organizations assumingly can and should do to mitigate and solve some of the more pressing social and environmental issues we currently face locally and globally. Yet despite the growing numbers and allotted importance of civil society organizations, relatively little is known globally about how we prepare, train, and educate present and future leaders and professionals in these organizations ...


What Are They Learning? Assessing Theatre/Dance Performance Experiences, Andrew Vorder Bruegge, Meg Schriffen Dec 2014

What Are They Learning? Assessing Theatre/Dance Performance Experiences, Andrew Vorder Bruegge, Meg Schriffen

Andrew Vorder Bruegge, Ph.D.

The model of assessment will demonstrate how to align the assessment of production activity with learning goals set by accrediting bodies, the institution, the department, and the specific program. This alignment insures that measurement of student learning is standardized across the students’ entire experience in the program (courses, performances, rehearsals, technical preparations, etc.) Examples of indirect and direct measurement instruments will be presented.


The Effects Of Technology Innovativeness And System Exposure On Student Acceptance Of E-Textbooks., Madison N. Ngafeeson, Jun Sun Dec 2014

The Effects Of Technology Innovativeness And System Exposure On Student Acceptance Of E-Textbooks., Madison N. Ngafeeson, Jun Sun

Madison Ngafeeson

The efforts of educators in the last three decades have, among other things, focused on the use of information technology (IT) in education. It has become commonplace to view in-formation systems both as an effective carrier of course content as well as a cost-effective tool to improve student learning outcomes. One of such technologies is the e-book. Deci-sion-makers in the education field need make sense of this technological transformation. However, despite the growing popularity of e-books in higher education, its adoption by students is yet to be crystalized. This study exploits the technology acceptance model (TAM) framework to examine student ...

The Hungry Games: Tackling Wicked Food Problems At Black River Public Schools Through A New Experiential Project Term Course, Danielle L. Lake

Danielle L Lake

Join us in the fight against overly processed foods—may the odds be ever in your flavor! In the winter of 2014, a team of students from Lib 322 “Wicked Problems of Sustainability” identified the food system and its impact on children as a wicked problem, initiated a community partnership at Black River Public School, and posited the development of an interdisciplinary, experiential project term course then designed by students in Lib 342 “Food Matters.” This new Black River course, “The Hungry Games,” will be piloted this spring to engage middle school students in experiential learning in order to foster ...

Implementing Augmented Reality In The Classroom, Douglas R. Miller, Tonia A. Dousay Dec 2014

Implementing Augmented Reality In The Classroom, Douglas R. Miller, Tonia A. Dousay

Tonia A. Dousay

Augmented reality (AR) is a tool that holds much promise in terms of its application for educational purposes. However, despite the fact that the hardware needed to access AR is becoming ubiquitous in classroom environments, AR’s use in educational settings is diffusing at a slow pace. Several challenges are present for educators interested in adopting AR in their instructional environments but they are not insurmountable. Increasing hardware availability as well as software advances are affording more instructors access to the tools needed to design, develop, and implement AR in and around their classroom. This paper first identifies a conceptual ...

The neoliberal university requires high productivity in compressed time frames. Though the neoliberal transformation of the university is well documented, the isolating effects and embodied work conditions
of such increasing demands are too rarely discussed. In this article, we develop a feminist ethics of care that challenges these working conditions. Our politics foreground collective action and the contention that good scholarship requires time to think, write, read, research, analyze, edit, organize, and resist the growing administrative and professional demands that disrupt these crucial processes of intellectual growth and personal freedom. This collectively written article explores alternatives to the fast-paced, metric-oriented ...
