Decision making, Mathematics education (Secondary), Academic achievement, and Digital technology
In many areas of society, especially education, from the standpoint of decision science, choosing a good performance evaluation tool is an important process in maintaining and improving quality. In the modern generation, with the opportunities brought about by the digital age, student assessment tools are increasingly diverse, with many new forms and tools, including the use of Google Forms. By inheriting research into Google Forms around the world, the paper presents the student assessment process through Google Forms in combination with IATA software. An empirical study was also conducted to evaluate the results of the model and make necessary recommendations. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
Education, Secondary, Middle school teaching, and Teachers--Attitudes
The present book was designed to find out whether there were any differences in the personality factors, attitudes and emotional intelligence of teachers at secondary level in District Srinagar, J&K. The sample for the investigation consisted of 600 secondary school teachers, out of which 300 were males and 300 were females (150 each in rural and urban dichotomy). The data was collected with the help of R.B Cattell's 16 Personality Factor Questionnaire, S.P Ahluwalia's Teacher Attitude Inventory and Shubra Mangal's Teacher Emotional Intelligence Inventory. This book is believed to help teachers, research scholars, programme planners, policy makers and administrators of the concerned field.
MATHEMATICS education (Secondary), PHYSICS education (Secondary), EDUCATION of immigrants, and STEM education
This research focuses on enrolment in advanced level Mathematics and Physics in secondary school among first and second generations of Former Soviet Union immigrants and third generation Israeli‐born Jews. The article made use of the Israeli Ministry of Education's database, which includes data on all students who finished their secondary education with a matriculation certificate in 2013. Our findings show the advantage of enrolment in Physics, which is perceived as the most difficult subject, among FSU immigrant students compared to the third generation of Israeli‐born students. This advantage may be explained by their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)‐related cultural capital. However, first‐generation FSU students were less likely to be enrolled in advanced‐level Mathematics compared to third‐generation Jews. These findings may emphasize the role of the Israeli education system as a gatekeeper in entering more prestigious Mathematics. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
Universities and colleges--Admission--Social aspects--United States, Education, Secondary--Social aspects--United States, Upper class--Education--United States, and Social classes--United States
Stories abound about the lengths to which middle- and upper-middle-class parents will go to ensure a spot for their child at a prestigious university. From the Suzuki method to calculus-based physics, from AP tests all the way back to early-learning Kumon courses, students are increasingly pushed to excel with that Harvard or Yale acceptance letter held tantalizingly in front of them. And nowhere is this drive more apparent than in our elite secondary schools. In Class Warfare, Lois Weis, Kristin Cipollone, and Heather Jenkins go inside the ivy-yearning halls of three such schools to offer a day-to-day, week-by-week look at this remarkable drive toward college admissions and one of its most salient purposes: to determine class. Drawing on deep and sustained contact with students, parents, teachers, and administrators at three iconic secondary schools in the United States, the authors unveil a formidable process of class positioning at the heart of the college admissions process. They detail the ways students and parents exploit every opportunity and employ every bit of cultural, social, and economic capital they can in order to gain admission into a “Most Competitive” or “Highly Competitive Plus” university. Moreover, they show how admissions into these schools—with their attendant rankings—are used to lock in or improve class standing for the next generation. It's a story of class warfare within a given class, the substrata of which—whether economically, racially, or socially determined—are fiercely negotiated through the college admissions process. In a historic moment marked by deep economic uncertainty, anxieties over socioeconomic standing are at their highest. Class, as this book shows, must be won, and the collateral damage of this aggressive pursuit may just be education itself, flattened into a mere victory banner.
Soil absorption and adsorption, Geospatial data, Geographic information systems--Study and teaching (Secondary), Geochemistry, Education, Secondary--Activity programs, and Metals--Absorption and adsorption
Learning and Teaching with Geomedia provides a theoretical and practical introduction to a field explicitly aimed at secondary education. The first section consists of three scientific papers introducing the dimensions of the emerging geoinformation society. The second section of the book is specifically dedicated to teacher trainers and teachers.The introductory section provides an overview of the development of geomedia and envisions a roadmap of technological development ahead; a discussion of everyday geomedia applications and geomedia use; and, finally, pedagogical approaches using geomedia in secondary education. This section provides a broad foundation that does not argue in favor of a technological paradigm, but suggests that geomedia use in secondary education should be oriented at everyday life applications.The main section is devoted to exemplary learning environments that are ready to use, and easily transferable to local schools. While geoinformation technology is the basis of these learning environments, care has been taken to clearly identify conceptual approaches to these learning environments, and, therefore, make them less reliant on technology locally available. Many of these are easily applied without any further software or hardware other than a web browser and a mobile phone.The pedagogical background of these learning environments leads from science education and spatial thinking to learning environments that support an education for spatial citizenship, reflected geomedia use and communication with maps to successfully participate in society.The book is aimed at academics in the fields of pedagogy, geography and citizenship education, as well as those working in science education. The professional audiences addressed are teacher trainers at university departments, teachers in secondary schools and students in teacher training.
