Empowering teachers to engage with global citizenship education: a look at formal
Education takes place in an increasingly complex environment characterised by constant change. Many current issues of social and educational interest transcend national boundaries. In this educational climate, schools and teachers are challenged to provide appropriate educational experiences that effectively connect their students to their global identities by engaging them with issues surrounding global citizenship. Teachers tend to have a poorly defined sense of their own global identities. One possibility for extending schools ’ ability to engage with issues of global citizenship is by forming learning partnerships with alternatively resourced and internationally experienced NGOs. An example of such a partnership is...
Mistaking Computers for Technology: Technology Literacy and the Digital Divide
- Tel Amiel
No other information and communication technology has swept the globe with greater speed than the Internet, having the potential to promote vast social, economic, and political transformations. As new technologies become available the pattern of adoption and diffusion creates disparities in access and ownership. At the most basic this gap is termed the digital divide and its most common antidote has been the computer. To close this divide, sizeable capital has been spent on deploying computer integration into public schools around the globe. This article uses the case of Brazil to analyze the role of computers in schools as tools...
[en] UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AS A BASIS FOR ALTERITY ETHICS: A CHRISTIAN HERMENEUTIC IN DIALOGUE WHITH THE LÉVINAS THOUGHTS, IN SEARCH OF AN INCLUSIVE SOCIETY
- MARIA CRISTINA SILVA FURTADO
[pt] Nesta dissertação procuramos mostrar que o preconceito e a discriminação; - fatores que geram a violência sofrida pela mulher, pela negra e pela homossexual, no decorrer da história da humanidade -; são ocasionados pela visão de inferioridade que se tem desta tríade. Estes grupos fogem ao padrão ideal antropológico da sociedade ocidental, gerando o não reconhecimento de sua alteridade, e uma rejeição capaz de levar ao assassinato. Analisamos, então, através do pensamento de Emmanuel Lévinas, seguindo a ótica teológica de Luis Carlos Susin, que a grande dificuldade em aceitar o diferente encontra-se na subjetividade fechada do ser. Finalmente, verificamos...

Reclaiming Aboriginal knowledge at the cultural interface. The Australian Education Researcher, 36(2), 55-72. Author contact details: Anthony McKnight: firstname.lastname@example.org Please cite as
- Tyson Yunkaporta; Sue Mcginty
Many studies and papers have explored and critiqued the “what ” and the “why ” of working at the cultural interface of mainstream curricula and local Indigenous knowledge, but this project sought to understand the “how”. Participants went beyond explorations of “cultural items ” and worked in the overlap between the New South Wales Department’s Quality Teaching Framework and Indigenous Pedagogies drawn from local lore, language and the sentient landscape. Indigenous knowledge was used not merely as content, but to provide innovative ways of thinking and problem solving in the field of design and technology. The methodology for the study...
THE EFFECT OF A GENRE-BASED WRITING COURSE ON ESL STUDENTS ’ WRITING OF COVER LETTERS THE EFFECT OF A GENRE-BASED WRITING COURSE ON ESL STUDENTS ’ WRITING OF COVER
- Marília Ferreira
O estudo de gêneros textuais tem sido de grande importância para o ensino das línguas materna e estrangeira, sobretudo, para o ensino da escrita. Entretanto, avaliações do efeito de pedagogias baseadas em gênero na aprendizagem ainda são escassas (JUSWIK et al, 2006; TARDY,2006; CHENG, 2006). O presente estudo avalia o impacto de um curso baseado em gê-neros textuais para o ensino da escrita em inglês para alunos de inglês como segunda língua no contexto universitário norte-americano. O curso adotou a visão australiana de gênero textu-al (MARTIN, 1989; 1993) e a pedagogia do Movimento do Abs-trato para o Concreto (MAC) baseada...
Fenomenología de la fe y antropología en Edith Stein: En miras de una pedagogía empática
- Céspedes Solís, Pablo
This paper addresses the philosophical and historical contexts of early twentieth-century Europe, particularly Germany, in order to better understand the life, work and thought of Edith Stein (Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross). A primary analysis of Stein’s work in philosophical anthropology and the phenomenology of faith and pedagogy will be presented, followed by a reflection on her possible contribution to Latin American social science and literature.
Teatro como acontecimento: La importancia del error y del inacabamiento de las cosas en la pedagogía teatral

1 IMPACTING PEDAGOGIES & ENHANCING TEACHER MORALE
- Choy Kum; Yoke Joyous; Khoo Sharon Faith; Joseph Marilyn
In the 21st century, teachers are constantly challenged to equip the next generation with the attributes of a life-long learner – to make the paradigm shift from ‘instruction delivery ’ to ‘facilitating learning’. (This is currently the educational landscape in Singapore due to the nation’s call for ‘Teach Less Learn More’.) As a result, the pedagogical challenge for teachers is overwhelming. Could teachers ever meet the escalating demands effectively and confidently? The IDEAS Project (Innovative Designs for Enhancing School Achievement), initially grounded in the work of Newmann and Wehlage (CORS Wisconsin-Madison), offers a process that enables teachers to examine their...

This paper provides an approach for incorporating simulation strategies into the instructional design of learning resource materials for the Diploma of Accounting. At present Vocational Education and Training (VET) in Australia is on the verge of the implementation of the “Six Major Areas of Action ” work plan enunciated by the High Level Review (HLR) of the Training Packages. Action 2 of the plan focuses on better Training Package design specifying work performance, knowledge, skills and abilities as well as workplace simulation and participation. The primary purpose of simulation is to facilitate the development of competence where the learners do...
“True learning is based on discovery guided by mentoring rather than the transmission of knowledge.”
- George Watson; Barbara Duch; Deborah Allen; Susan Groh; Harold White; John Dewey
Apprenticeship is the mastery of a craft, profession, or body of knowledge attained by engagement in learning under the guidance of a master. Mastery is achieved by working on real-world problems where the relevance to the apprentice is obvious and learning takes place in a community of practice. Problem-Based Learning (PBL) is an instructional method that has strong parallels to the apprenticeship approach to learning. (Wee & Kek, 2002) A key foundation of FORMASUP is the use of alternative pedagogies such as PBL. It is the promise of PBL that brought the University of Delaware (UD) and the FORMASUP consortium...
Simulating a Senate Office: The Impact on Student Knowledge and Attitudes
- J. Celeste Lay; Ph. D; Kathleen Smarick Ph. D
1 Although many instructors are now using simulations and other experiential pedagogies in their classrooms, the effectiveness of such tools has generally not been examined in a systematic way. In this paper, we assess the effectiveness of a simulation of the legislative process in the U.S. Senate as a tool for teaching college students about the workings of the American political system. We used pre- and post-test surveys in two “Introduction to American Government courses,, one of which utilized traditional teaching methods, such as lectures and tests, and one of which supplemented these traditional methods with an on-line simulation. We...
FACTORS AFFECTING TEACHERS ’ USE OF INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY
Research studies in the past decade have shown that computer technology is an effective means for widening educational opportunities, but most teachers neither use technology as an instructional delivery system nor integrate technology into their curriculum. Studies reveal a number of factors influencing teachers’ decisions to use ICT in the classroom: non-manipulative and manipulative school and teacher factors. These factors are interrelated. The success of the implementation of ICT is not dependent on the availability or absence of one individual factor, but is determined through a dynamic process involving a set of interrelated factors. It is suggested that ongoing professional...
Escola, sete formas de desordem e o amor: para a Inclusão total
- Pereira, Rui Lopes Penha
Argumento aqui que persiste um ambiente intoleravelmente agressivo e de exclusão, para os alunos nas escolas comuns. Tal prejudica a pedagogia para a instrução, e a educação ao nível da sua formação como pessoas e cidadãos empenhados para o seu bem e o bem da comunidade. Seguidamente irei propor uma certa concepção da educação, que assume a pessoa educada como a pessoa ética e autónoma, detentora de um aparato emocional adequado a viver uma vida florescente e em bem-estar. Depois serão sumariamente descritas, o que aqui se designará por sete formas de desordem: comparação, corrupção, dependência, divisão, medo, auto desintegração...
