           and Math Problem Posing Attitudes

    • Authors: Canses Tican
      Abstract: The main purpose of the current study is to investigate middle school students’ math self-efficacy perceptions and math problem posing attitudes. The sample of the study is comprised of 990 fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grade students attending middle school in the Fethiye district of the city of Muğla. As the data collection tool, the “Math Self-efficacy Perception Scale” and the “Math Problem Posing Attitude Scale” were used. In the analysis of the data collected through the qualitative research method, frequencies, percentages, independent-samples t-test, one-way variance analysis, post-hoc tests (Scheffe and Dunnett’s C) and correlation analysis were used. As a result, it was found that the middle school students’ math self-efficacy perceptions and math problem posing attitudes are over the medium level. The middle school students’ self-efficacy perceptions were found to be varying significantly depending on gender. The middle school students’ problem posing attitudes were found to be varying significantly depending on gender. The math self-efficacy perceptions and math problem posing attitudes of the 5th and 6th grade students were found to be significantly higher than those of the 7th and 8th grade students. A medium, positive and significant correlation was found between the middle school students’ mean math self-efficacy perception score and their mean math problem posing attitude score.

  • The Role of Leisure Management in Study-Leisure Conflict in Secondary
           Education

    • Authors: Tebessüm Ayyıldız Durhan
      Abstract: In the study where the relationship between study-leisure conflict and leisure management and the effect of leisure management on this conflict was investigated, it was also determined how certain variables changed the level of SLCS and LM. The study included 236 students studying in total 4 secondary and high schools in Ankara, and the data were obtained through personal information form as well as study-conflict and leisure management scales. Study and leisure conflict scale; “Study-Leisure Conflict Scale” is a measurement tool developed by Işık and Demirel (2018), inspired by the scale of “Measurement of Work-Leisure” (Tsaur et al., 2012), consisting of 20 questions and 5 sub-dimensions. “Leisure Management” scale is a measurement tool developed by Wang et al. (2011), consisting of 15 questions and 4 sub-dimensions and adapted to Turkish by Akgül and Karaküçük (2015). Parametric tests were applied since it was determined that the data showed normal distribution. In the analysis of the data, descriptive statistics, independent sample T test, one-way analysis of variance ANOVA test and Tukey (HSD-LSD) test were used for intra-group comparisons, and Pearson Correlation test and Regression analysis were used to determine the relationship and effect. The findings of the research show that the participants displayed a level of conflict below average; on the other hand, they showed a level of leisure management slightly above the average. Partial weak relations were determined between the study-leisure conflict scale and the leisure-time management scale, while at the same time; it decreased the level of leisure-study conflict of leisure time, although it was not significant. It is among other findings that certain variables change the measurement tools. As a result of the research, it is thought that the partial weak relations between study-leisure conflict and leisure management will return to the expected negative momentum by the students having effective knowledge and skills about leisure management. Accordingly, it is revealed by the findings of the study that more information on leisure time, management and conflict resolution should be transferred in education programs.

  • The Usage of “Quizizz”™ App by Sport Sciences Students in the
           Bachelor’s Degree Anatomy Lecture and Its Effects on Attitude and Course
           Success

    • Authors: Celal Gençoğlu
      Abstract: Purpose: The aim of this study is to examine the effects of technologically assisted learning for anatomy courses in sport science collegiate. Methods: One hundred forty-four first-year students from sport sciences faculty attended a required anatomy course in the syllabus. The participants of this class were composed of two learning groups as Classical Learning Group (n=48), and New Approach Group (n=96) based on the lecture style. Classical anatomy course carried out with instruction-based method via PowerPoint lecture on the anatomy course materials such as textbooks, models, and printed visualizations of anatomical sites whereas “Quizizz”™ app-based one performed interactively within a technology-assisted way. The end of the semester, participants answered a reliable and valid survey named Anatomy Lectures Attitude Questionnaire (ALAQ). Results: There was a significant difference in the mid-term and course success when compared Classical Learning (CL) and New Approach (NA). However, no significant differences observed final examination, ALAQ results, and sub-factors’. There was a very low correlation between mid-term, final, course success and ALAQ results in NA group. However, no significantly correlation found between mid-term, final, course success and ALAQ results in CL group. Conclusion: The findings reported here suggest that “Quizizz”™ app can enable improving learning outcomes and contribute to test scores for human anatomy in sport sciences collegiate. We do not conceive the substitute traditional learning method within the educational applications for anatomy courses, but it could be regarded as a supplement method of teaching in higher education.

  • Pre-Implementation Perceptions Among Teachers on the Use of Ecological
           Sanitation and Application of Human Urine as Fertilizer

    • Authors: Govinda Prasad Devkota
      Abstract: Although human urine contains nutrients for plant growth, very few community schools in Nepal use a urine diversion dry toilet (UDDT) and apply the human urine as fertilizer in their school garden. Using human urine in agriculture reduces the use of chemical fertilizers, thus saving the expenditure associated with it. Application of human urine improves the soil fertility and may contribute to increased food security among school children if the school can supply the canteen with food for mid-day meals. This study adopted a Participatory Action Research (PAR) approach in order to understand stakeholder perspectives and involve them in the planning and implementation of urine diverting toilets. The data for this study were collected from five teachers’ focus group discussions. This paper presents teachers’ perceptions of the urine diversion dry toilet system and use of human urine as a fertilizer for the school garden. Only a few teachers accepted that human urine could be used as fertilizer, however, they were not willing to use it on their crops since it was considered impure. Due to a perceived bad odor and the uncomfortable sitting position on the UDDT, particularly for females, teachers disliked this toilet and they felt using urine as fertilizer was unnecessary. One of the key lessons drawn from the study is that schools, in collaboration with local governments, should employ participatory approaches to understanding and engaging local stakeholders, including teachers, to minimize negative perceptions prior to the application of human urine as fertilizer in the school garden.

  • The Challenges Facing Arab Students with Learning Disabilities in Higher
           Education Institutions and the Role of Support Centers in Their Academic
           Functioning: A Preliminary Study

    • Authors: Dorit Olenik-Shemesh
      Abstract: The topic of support for students with learning disabilities (LD) has been studied to a considerable extent in recent years, due to the significant increase in the integration of students with learning disabilities in higher education institutions (HEI). However, there is hardly any research examining the support for students with learning disabilities in Israel’s Arab sector. The purpose of the current preliminary study is to examine whether support centers for students with learning disabilities assist Arab students with their learning and general academic functioning in Israeli higher education institutions. The study is qualitative, involving semi-structured interviews with eight Arab students diagnosed with learning disabilities studying at two institutions of higher education. Analysis of the interviews revealed four major themes: The double difficulty that students experience due to the fact that they are Arabs for whom Hebrew is a second language, and due to their learning disabilities; lower awareness of learning disabilities in the Arab sector in Israel; post-diagnosis relief; a sense of wellbeing satisfaction with the educational, social and occupational support provided, enabling them to study and succeed. The article addresses also to the limitations of the study as a primary study, along with recommendations for further research based on this preliminary study.

  • Institutional Variables and Student’s Employability Skills Development
           in Public Universities in Cross River and Akwa Ibom States, Nigeria

    • Authors: Emmanuel Sunday Essien
      Abstract: This study addresses institutional variables as determinants of employability skills acquisition among undergraduates in Cross River and Akwa Ibom States, Nigeria. Three research hypotheses were posed to guide the study. A descriptive survey research design was employed for the study. The population comprised of final year students in Faculty of Education at the University of Calabar numbered 904 and University of Uyo 939 respectively. Stratified random sampling technique was used to select data and a sample of 108 was drawn from University of Calabar and 112 drawn from the University of Uyo. A self-structured rating scale titled “Students’ Employability Skills Acquisition Scale (SEASAS). Face and content validity of the instrument was done by supervisor and experts, Cronbach alpha reliability coefficient range were .73-.92. Hypotheses were analyzed using t-test (population and independent t-tests) and one-way analysis of variances (ANOVA), hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. The result of the study revealed among others: institutional variables on the levels of employability skills after their years in various programmes were not significantly low. Based on the findings, it was however recommended among others that; employability skills studies should be embedded in the university curriculum, university authority should make programmes of study more elaborate and rich in content to equip students with skills. Academic programmes in the universities irrespective of the school-age and terms of conditions should also be given basic priorities.

  • Managing Higher Education Needs of Internally Displaced Persons in Cross
           River State, Nigeria

    • Authors: Ovat Egbe Okpa
      Abstract: Displaced persons encounter some difficulties in accessing higher education, yet higher education remains their inalienable rights. This study focused on ways of managing the higher education needs of internally displaced persons. Three hypotheses guided the study. The descriptive survey research design was adopted in the study. The entire population was used since it is not large enough to warrant randomization. The sample comprised 600 participants (38 teachers and 562 senior secondary (SS 1-3) students from three secondary schools. The instrument used for data collection was questionnaire titled Higher Education Needs for Displaced Persons Questionnaire (HENDPQ) on a modified four point Likert scale. The precision and internal consistency of the instrument was determined using Cronbach reliability method which gave rise to a coefficient ranging from 0.76 - 0.81. The data was collected personally by the researchers with the help of three research assistants. The data collected was analyzed using Pearson Product Moment Correlation Analysis at 0.05 level of significance. The result of the analysis revealed that there is a significant positive influence of higher education needs on development of displaced persons, provision of scholarships/bursaries on access to higher education; and provision of certified distance learning and e-learning opportunities on access to higher education for displaced persons. Based on these findings it was recommended that the government should urgently manage the higher education needs of displaced persons through adequate provision of scholarships/bursaries, distance learning and e-learning opportunities to enhance access to higher education.

  • Impacts of Direct Metacognitive Instructions on Self-Actualization

    • Authors: Fariba Dezhbankhan
      Abstract: Education has a crucial role in improving opportunities for lifelong learning and helping students to move towards their self-actualizing goals. Applying metacognitive interventions facilitate conceptualization and operationalization of such holistic approach of education. This study investigated the impacts of twelve hours metacognitive intervention, ‘Direct Metacognitive Instructions’ (DMI) on self-actualization process among 31 students using quasi-experimental (pre-test-post-test) design. The large effect size (Partial η2 = .818, 95% confidence intervals) implied that DMI has a statistically significant impact in fostering student’s self-actualization. This study has implications for designing and implementing multidimensional metacognitive interventions targeting self-actualization and evaluating cognitive, behavioral and affective effects of such interventions.
