tandfonline.com – What influences universities’ regional engagement? A multi-stakeholder perspective applying a Q-methodological approach

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”: ABSTRACT ABSTRACT This paper argues that rather than being a process that can be objectively planned or predicted, regional engagement on the part of universities is a learning activity featuring characteristics of a subjective deliberation process. This subjective deliberation process is simultaneously influenced by factors operating at the intra-organizational and regional level, as well as the field in which the university is located. A model that takes this multilevel environment into account is applied to a single case study region: Kaiserslautern (Germany). A Q-methodological approach is employed to reveal and analyze the aforementioned subjective perspectives regarding drivers of universities’ regional engagement. Two key viewpoints emerge from this analysis: one perspective reflects a highly institutionalized reading of regional engagement, and can… Continue Reading

tandfonline.com – The role of perspective in the contemporary artistic practice

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”: Abstract Abstract The influence of scientific research in art is not exclusively a contemporary phenomenon. The Alberti model of pictorial representation based on perspective, as well as the social consideration of art, included Painting among the liberal arts because of the mathematical principles of geometry which it was founded on. For more than 400 years, perspective would be called the “science of art” and it established, almost in a unitary way, a representative model that has characterised the artistic production and the training of artists until the fracture represented by the art of the twentieth century. The discussion about the preeminence of the rational model in the artistic practice based on the aesthetic or historicist parameters has been the topic… Continue Reading

Eric.ed.gov – Teaching Physics within a Next Generation Science Standards Perspective

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are an explicit document that articulates our pedagogical practices in K-12 science instruction for the United States. The document is an excellent work that describes pedagogy and road maps for building coherence of science principles and student understanding of the Nature of Science. The prescient thing about the current NGSS is that physics teachers have practiced the ideas and tenets prescribed in the NGSS decades ago. Also, the ideas espoused in the NGSS Framework can easily be transferred to other disciplines, especially Math, through specific, articulated lesson building. Link til kilde

tandfonline.com – An Inferentialist Perspective on How Note-taking can Constrain the Orchestration of Math-Talk

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”: ABSTRACT ABSTRACT The aim of this study is to investigate relationships between note-taking and the orchestrating of math-talk in whole-class teaching. A lesson on (average) velocity in a Swedish Grade 6 has been observed. Taking an inferentialist stance on human understanding, the study conceptualizes teaching and learning from the perspective of how students come to be engaged in the language practice of giving and asking for reasons. The study shows how note-taking supports a teacher-student relationship where the teacher produces content and the students’ participation is reduced to consume content. It shows how note-taking can support descriptive math-talk of concepts and symbols and step-by-step procedural math-talk, connected to the goal of providing students examples of tasks, similar to the tasks… Continue Reading

tandfonline.com – Opportunities for and obstacles to science in preschools: views from a community perspective

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”: ABSTRACT ABSTRACT In this study, Activity Theory (AT) is used to analyse general patterns for how cultural and historical factors interact with the shaping of science activities in preschools. Data was produced from field notes, video observations, video stimulated recall group discussions and individual interviews with preschool teachers at fourteen preschool units, where science activities were described as a common feature of the practice. Two factors were found to be particularly important for how and whether science learning opportunities were afforded the children: the structure of the preschool community and the type of educational culture within it. In communities characterised by weak mutual commitment and without joint understanding of the purpose of the activities, the science learning objects of the… Continue Reading

tandfonline.com – Interdisciplinarity and Indigenous Studies: A Māori Perspective

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”: ABSTRACT ABSTRACT This paper uses a Māori epistemological approach, to demonstrate why indigenous knowledge systems should be recognised as the ultimate example of interdisciplinary interaction. Over the last 25 years, the library and information professions in New Zealand have become aware of the need to ensure that the full potential of mātauranga Māori is realised. This involves thinking less about ‘Māori studies’, and being more focused on the interaction and integration of the inter-disciplinary components that constitute the totality of mātauranga Māori. Within this context, library and information management institutions are responsible for ensuring that they are able to provide the resources and services required by Māori wishing to draw on knowledge across disciplines, in ways that may ordinarily be seen… Continue Reading

tandfonline.com – Experienced teachers dealing with issues in education: a career perspective

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”: ABSTRACT ABSTRACT This article reports on a qualitative study on the issues experienced teachers may encounter in everyday teaching practice. Some issues may possibly originate at the beginning of a career and continue to be a struggle during their career. Data were collected among 20 mid- and late career teachers from eight secondary schools. The results showed that at the current moment in their career, respondents of this study particularly recognised three issues: teacher–parent interaction, teaching versus other tasks and private life versus work. Teachers seldom talk about their issues, but more often than not they try to find a solution themselves or put up with the situation. Link til kilde

Eric.ed.gov – Projections of California Teacher Retirements: A County and Regional Perspective. REL 2017-181

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: This report projects California teacher retirements at the state and county levels for 2014/15-2023/24, updating a previously published report that projected California teacher retirements for 2006/07-2015/16. The current study finds that 25 percent of California teachers who were teaching in 2013/14 are projected to retire over 2014/15-2023/24. The proportion projected to retire varies greatly across counties, from 19 percent in Sutter County to 61 percent in Sierra County. This suggests that counties will confront very different staffing situations over the 10-year period because of projected retirements. Rural counties that are projected to have higher retirement rates tend to lie along the state’s northern coast and near the state’s northern and eastern borders; lower retirement rates are projected in and around metropolitan areas (such as San Francisco, Sacramento, Orange County/Los… Continue Reading

tandfonline.com – A capability theory of the firm: an economics and (Strategic) management perspective

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”: ABSTRACT ABSTRACT The business enterprise is the prime institution in economic development and growth; yet, until recently, mainstream economics has mostly treated firms as homogeneous black boxes managed by untrustworthy agents. Using economic principles, the field of strategic management has developed a nuanced approach to understanding how firms are created, organized, and grow; how they innovate and compete; and how managers manage. That approach has yielded a theoretical framework known as ‘dynamic capabilities’. Contrasts are drawn between dynamic capabilities and other approaches to the theory of the firm, including transaction cost economics and agency theory. The application of capability theory allows intellectual blinders to be removed and an understanding of differential firm-level resource allocation and performance to emerge. This brings… Continue Reading
