tandfonline.com – Exploring the spread of English language learning in South Korea and reflections of the diversifying sociolinguistic context for future English language teaching practices

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”: ABSTRACT ABSTRACT The purpose of this article is to provide an understanding of why traditional English language teaching (ELT) which focuses on native speaker models has become obsolete in South Korea (henceforth Korea). Korea has been known as a linguistically and ethnically homogeneous nation throughout its history. However, the current sociolinguistic situation of Korea tells a different story. Various patterns of migration have emerged around the world and Korea has been no exception. This article explores the widespread passion for English language learning in Korea and the role of English on the individual and nationwide levels. Then, it argues that monolingual and standard language ideologies do not fit into this globalized era. Given the steadily diversifying demographics in Korea and… Continue Reading

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: This module assumes that the information presented in previous modules is well known to the learner. Module 5 is the second of three modules (4, 5, and 6) designed to provide an in-depth look at the Standards of Mathematical Practice which are part of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Module 5 focuses on how the practices connect to the content standards using tasks as examples. Additionally, there is a short section on the interrelatedness of the Math Practices which provides another lens through which to view the connections to the content standards. Links to descriptions to help differentiate the expected proficiencies by grade level are also included in this module. By the end of the module, the learner will be able to identify which practices… Continue Reading

tandfonline.com – The Arabic version of the teacher efficacy for inclusive practices (TEIP-AR) scale: A construct validity study

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”: Abstract Abstract This study aimed to examine the psychometric characteristics of the Arabic version of the Teacher Efficacy for Inclusive Practices (TEIP) scale. Data were collected from 432 participants in Saudi Arabia—185 in-service and 247 pre-service teachers. A statistical analysis was conducted using the following methods: Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA), Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA), misfit analysis via Rasch modelling, and reliability Cronbach’s alpha coefficients. Good internal consistency coefficients were obtained for the TEIP scale and each of its three subscales (>.8). Acceptable fit indices were obtained from the confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) for a scale with 18 items in three subscales: inclusive instructions, collaboration, and managing behaviour. In conclusion, the Arabic version of the TEIP scale is valid with Arabic… Continue Reading

Eric.ed.gov – A Survey: Quality Practices. NCEDL Spotlights, No. 10.

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: This report summarizes findings from a national survey of 1,902 teachers of preschoolers regarding the extent to which they are able to engage in the educational practices they endorse. Teachers were given a list of 21 practices and asked to rate the extent to which each practice happened in their classroom and the extent to which they would want the practice to occur in a “perfect world.” Findings indicate few discrepancies between reported practices and beliefs. There were significant differences in the extent to which teachers from various types of programs endorsed group-centered beliefs, that is, those that encourage all children to engage in the same activities at the same time and at the same pace. Teachers in public schools, Head Start centers, and other non-profit centers… Continue Reading

tandfonline.com – Evaluating visible learning: Mathematics teachers’ practices in technology-enhanced classrooms

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”: Abstract Abstract The present study examined the extent to which mathematics teachers’ practices reflect visible learning (VL) at their schools and in their technology-enhanced classrooms. A number of determining factors influencing mathematics teachers to practice VL were also investigated. The Visible Learning Scale (VLS) instrument was conceptually developed based on Hattie’s eight mind frames of VL. The survey results from 119 participants indicated that Saudi mathematics teachers expressed a moderate to great level of evidence-based VL practice to enhance and promote students’ learning achievements and progress. The results also showed that the competence level of information and communication technology (ICT) integration is a determining and influential factor that enhances the practices teachers undertake to achieve a better effect on their… Continue Reading

Eric.ed.gov – Enactment of Lessons from a Technology-Based Curriculum: The Role of Instructional Practices in Students’ Opportunity to Learn. CPRE Research Report

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: Digital tools and technology-based activities offer new and promising opportunities for students to actively explore mathematical concepts and ideas in ways supported by current reforms and visions of mathematics instruction. This report provides an in-depth look at the implementation of SunBay Digital Mathematics (SunBay Math) during the second year of an i3 validation project, in two large Florida districts. SunBay Math is a set of middle-school curriculum replacement units centered on the use of technology-based, dynamically linked representations to learn core mathematical concepts. We focus specifically on patterns and relationships between instructional practices and instructional quality in 26 videotaped lesson enactments that were purposefully collected to represent variation in implementation.

tandfonline.com – Dialogic practices in primary school classrooms

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”: Abstract Abstract Research into classroom dialogue suggests that certain forms are especially productive for students’ learning. Despite the large number of studies in this area, there is inadequate evidence about the prevalence of the identified forms, let alone their productivity. However, scarcity is widely presumed. The overall aim of the study reported in this article was to examine the extent to which the forms are embedded within current practice in English primary schools. Video-recordings of two lessons from each of 36 classrooms formed the database, with two subjects from mathematics, English and science covered in each classroom. Each lesson was coded per turn for the presence of ‘dialogic moves’ and rated overall for the level of student involvement in specified… Continue Reading

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: In an effort to identify and incorporate exemplary practices into existing and future afterschool programs, the U.S. Department of Education commissioned a large-scale evaluation of the 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) program. The purpose of this evaluation project was to develop resources and professional development that addresses issues relating to the establishment and sustainability of afterschool programs. Fifty-three high functioning programs representative across eight regional divisions of the nation, including rural and urban programs, community-based and school district related programs, were identified using rigorous methods. Exemplary practices in program organization, program structure, and especially in content delivery were studied. The findings were synthesized into the Afterschool Toolkit that was made available to programs nationwide via the world-wide-web. Professional development was conducted consistently and extensively throughout the… Continue Reading
