  • Internet Capacity of Higher Education and Research Institutes in Africa:
           The Need for National Research Education Network

    • Authors: Ronke Ogunmakin
      Pages: 586 - 591
      Abstract: Higher Education Institutions especially Universities have for all time been identified as the space for generating knowledge through research. Unfortunately, for many African countries, higher education had witnessed a long period of relative neglect and stagnation. Many higher Education Institutions, especially Universities in Africa, are burdened with a myriad of problems to the extent that they have little time and resources for effective research. Research as connoted in this article refers to independent intellectual enquiry into diverse disciplines and areas, and which leads to the creation of new and significant knowledge. So far, Google Apps for Education is now available to hundreds of thousands of students and university faculty in over 20 African universities, including University of Benin, University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Benson Idahosa University, Covenant University and University of Lagos. By participating in the program, Nigerian universities have access to Google Apps for Education, a free suite of hosted email and collaboration applications exclusively for schools.

  • Facilitating Conceptual Change in Students' Comprehension of
           Electrochemistry Concepts through Collaborative Teaching Strategy

    • Authors: Kwaku Darko Amponsah; Chukunoye Enunuwe Ochonogor
      Pages: 596 - 601
      Abstract: This paper reports on a study to determine the effectiveness of collaborative teaching on physical sciences students' comprehension of electrochemistry in the Ximhungwe circuit of the Bohlabela district in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa. The design of the teaching strategy draws upon theoretical insights into perspectives of social constructivism and empirical studies to improve upon the teaching of the main topic, specifically galvanic cells, electrolytic cells and electrode potentials. In addition, the effect of collaboration as a teaching strategy on students’ perception of their chemistry classroom environment was also investigated. A sample of 90 grade 12 physical sciences students from four intact public schools was conveniently selected to participate in the study. Students were given electrochemistry concept test (ECT) as well as chemistry classroom environment questionnaire (CCEQ) as pre-test and post-test. One-way analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) conducted showed that students taught using collaboration had significantly better acquisition of scientific conceptions related to electrochemistry than students taught using lecture method. Pearson Product-Moment Correlation also revealed that there was a significant positive relationship between achievement and students’ perception of their chemistry classroom environment. However, ANCOVA and ANOVA results indicated that there was no significant contribution of students’ perception of their chemistry classroom environment to their comprehension of electrochemistry concepts. This study provides statistical evidence on the importance of meaningful learning combined with social process to improve students’ understanding of electrochemistry.

    • Authors: Awaluddin Tjalla; Maria Fransiska Putriyani
      Pages: 602 - 610
      Abstract: This research focuses on the analysis of mathematics metacognitive skills of Papua’s students in School of Indonesian Children (SIC) in solving mathematics learning problems. The research was conducted to provide a good quality education for Papuan students, so the research start the research from the metacognitive skills especially in mathematics. The respondents of the research are 6 students from grade VII of SIC. Those respondents are represent of higher mathematical ability, medium mathematical ability, and lower mathematical ability. The research used descriptive qualitative research method. Data collection procedures used in this research was in-depth interview and participant observation as well as documents related to metacognitive process in solving the problems in learning mathematics. The in-depth interview was with the respondents, the Principal, the mathematical teacher and the Character Building teacher. For documents related to metacognitive process in solving the problems in learning mathematics such as the result national exam in elementary, the result daily test of math, the result of quiz or homework. In general, the students in Papua were lack of mathematics metacognitive ability such as, lack of cognitive knowledge and cognitive regulation, sometimes they cannot perform the activities that reflects conscious metacognitive such as mathematics problem solving. The research result indicates that the structure metacognitive ability of students in Papua influences their problem solving ability in learning mathematics. This metacognitive ability is also influenced by the fact that it becomes their characteristics background as respondents from Papua.

      Pages: 611 - 616
      Abstract: This research was aimed to indicate how high school students use metaphors to think about math “functions”. A total of 405 students were asked to complete the phrase, “Function is like..…. because……” Students were given sheets and asked to write their thoughts while focusing on one metaphor. The data from this research was analyzed through a content analysis method. The metaphors were determined, classified and categorized. A total of 149 valid metaphors were identified and classified under eight different categories. The research results indicated that more than half of the students think that function is a difficult concept, some students found the concepts of polynomial and function similar to each other, and some expressed that they found the subject of function easy and enjoyed solving problems related to functions.

      Abstract: Individual innovativeness, as applied among teachers who are agents of change and innovations, centers the idea of being adaptive and adoptive to radical changes through risk-taking. Innovativeness is the teachers’ tendency to adapt and adopt innovations earlier than other members of their niche, in particular, and the society, in general. This study is designed to determine the individual innovativeness of pre-service elementary grade teachers as a basis in proposing an intervention program to boost their morale of being an innovative professional teacher. Using 42 senior pre-service elementary grade teachers of the SY 2017-2018 under Descriptive-Comparative Research Design, the following are known: (1) The respondents were late majority innovative with a general index of 55.70, interpreted as lowly innovative (late majority); (2) Males had higher index than their female counterparts although the mean difference of .50 is almost negligible – both males and females fall in the index range for late majority innovative; (3) The age group of 21-22 had the highest index than their 23 and above and 19-20 age group-counterparts although the mean differences of .08 and 1.50, respectively, are almost negligible – all age groups fall in the index range for late majority innovative; and (4) The Ilocanos had the highest index when compared to their Ifugao/Igorot and other ethno-linguistic group-counterparts although the mean differences of 1.63 and 1.38, respectively, are almost negligible – all ethnicity groups fall in the index range for late majority innovative.

    • Authors: Abderrahmane RIOUCH; Saad BENAMAR
      Pages: 621 - 631
      Abstract: This work aims to highlight the different foundations, actors, tools and approaches of environmental education (EE) and to evaluate the tools and approaches to EE in Morocco based on an intersectorial approach. Research data have been collected via two complementary tools: a questionnaire and face to face interviews. Fourteen questions made our questionnaire that we administered in place or through emails and social media networks. The sample of the research is composed of 720 interviewed. The results show that EE in Morocco is characterized by a diversity of tools and approaches. However, the development of environmental education is faced with several obstacles. Concrete actions in environmental education in Morocco need to be strengthened; Most of them focus on education about the environment. Improvement is needed to fill gaps and to develop EE in the various Moroccan ministerial departments in harmony with the specificities and cultural heritage of the country. To this end, we suggest some ways to improve the development of EE well adapted to the Moroccan context.

  • The Performance and Mathematical Attitude of Analytic and Global Learners:
           A Comparative Study

    • Authors: Bernard O. Callao; Dante Joma P. Zabala, Myrna E. Lahoylahoy
      Pages: 644 - 648
      Abstract: This study was conducted to identify performance and attitude of analytic and global learners towards mathematics. Performances in a research-made Achievement Test were determined according to their mean and standard deviation scores. Mean attitudes were interpreted as very positive, generally positive, neutral, slightly positive, and negative using the Fennema-Sherman Attitude Scale. On the basis of the mean and standard deviation score, it was found out that the global learners have slightly higher performance than the analytic learners. Their attitudes were both generally positive. However, it was observed that some analytic learners’ attitudes towards mathematics were very positive. There is a significant difference in the performance and attitude towards mathematics of analytic and global learners. Moreover, the significant relationship existed between analytic students’ performance and attitude towards mathematics. This is also true among global learners.

  • Impact of Concept Mapping and Modular Learning Techniques on Pupils’
           Achievement for the Selected Topics in Mathematics

    • Authors: M. Aron Antony Charles; N. Sasikumar
      Pages: 649 - 657
      Abstract: This research emphasizes on an alternate instructional tools called “Concept Map and Modular learning techniques”. The goal of this study was to determine the effectiveness of using concept maps and modular learning techniques in improving the mathematics achievement of higher secondary students and compare it with a traditional approach for a mathematics unit. Both the control and the experimental groups were required to take a pre-test before instruction and a post-test at the end of instruction. The test consisting of 30 questions was used to assess learning gains on a Mathematics Unit about Trigonometry and Differential Calculus. Moreover, results showed that the levels of concept mapping and modular learning techniques ability were associated with the students’ learning gains. The study suggests that, when carefully integrated into the normal classroom procedure and when other contributing factors such as student motivation and preparedness, reading ability levels, time and classroom environment are considered, concept mapping and modular learning techniques has a potential to be an effective instructional strategy. To enforce the title of the study, the researcher had determined to verify the results from a different angle using the normative survey method to justify the impact of attitude towards mathematics homework. Based on the findings and discussions, XI standard students are having positive mathematics homework attitude towards concept mapping and modular learning techniques for the topics trigonometry and differential calculus.

  • Contextualizing the First Two Years of the Libyan Education Reform
           Proposed Strategies (2020-2026): Targeted Candidates and Reflective
           Activities

    • Authors: Dr. Ageila Ali Elabbar
      Pages: 664 - 672
      Abstract: This paper is a continuation of the previous published paper “National Libyan Public Education Reform: Entire Transformative Strategies, 2020–2026 – November 2017,” which proposed a framework for reforming Libyan public education with consideration of the difficulties that educators and learners facing due to the confusing conditions. It divided the reform plan into three phases in six years of gradual reform (for example, 2020-2026) to overcome their faced constraints, which come from the existing economic effects, discouraged forms of education, changeable curriculums, bureaucratic schools and university organizations, the conservative community, two generations of teachers, and uncertain education strategies. Another factor is the way learners learn (learning styles), besides current political upheavals all over Libya (civil war), which affected the entire stability of education in Libya and led to there being two ministries of education (east and west Libya). Therefore, six years of gradual reform stages were planned so that a new generation of students will start with pre-kindergarten in academic year 2026, or six years after the start of the strategy. This idea is the result of several published studies on the Libyan education context, which led to insights on implementing complete reform approaches for the entire Libyan education system. Accordingly, I will explain in depth each of the three phases in separate papers, starting with this paper, which aims to contextualize Phase 1 of the first two years (2020-2022) of the entire suggested proposal (2020-2026 or equal years).

  • Home Environment and Parental Involvement as Determinants of
           Preschoolers’ Readiness for Primary School Education in Osun State,
           Nigeria

    • Authors: B. A. Adeyemi; I. N.Adebanjo
      Pages: 673 - 680
      Abstract: The study assessed the home environment of preschoolers. It determined the level of involvement of parents. It further determined the interaction effect of home environment and parental involvement on preschoolers’ readiness for primary school education. These were with a view to providing information on the factors that could influence readiness in preschoolers. The study adopted the descriptive research design. Parents of preschoolers in Osun State constituted the population for the study. The sample consisted of 300 parents from twelve schools. The samples were selected using multistage sampling procedure. Six Local Government Areas were selected from the three Senatorial Districts in Osun State using simple random sampling technique. From each Local Government, two private schools were selected using simple random sampling technique. From each of the 12 nursery schools, 25 parents were selected using purposive sampling technique. An instrument titled: Questionnaire on Home Environment, Parental Involvement and Preschoolers’ Readiness (QHEPIPR) was used to elicit information from the respondents. Percentages, frequency counts, t-test and ANOVA were employed to analyse the data. The results of the study showed that high percentage (71%) of preschoolers have homes that stimulate them for education by provision of educational materials, conducive reading atmosphere, good habits, monitored hours of television viewing, learning something new daily, deliberate conversations daily, planned time-out with the children, and punishment for misbehaviours. 14.0%, 70%, and 16% of the respondents have low, moderate and high level of parental involvement in preschoolers’ education. Also, the results showed that the home environment and parental involvement would significantly determine preschoolers’ readiness for primary school education (N=300, t=-59.996, p < 0.05) and (N=300,t = 21.483, p < 0.05) respectively while the interaction effect of home environment and parental involvement would also significantly determine preschoolers’ readiness for primary school education (N=300,F = 689.479, p = 0.000).The study concluded that home environment and parental involvement significantly determined preschoolers’ readiness for primary school education.

  • Continuous Assessment Feedback and Students’ Performances in Semester
           Examinations in a College of Education

    • Authors: Osuala R. C; Onwuagboke B. B. C, Agoha T. C.
      Pages: 688 - 693
      Abstract: The study sought to compare the end of semester examination performance of NCE student-teachers in Alvan Ikoku Federal College of Education, Owerri whose continuous assessment (CA) feedback were given and those whose continuous assessment feedback were not given and also ascertain the proportion of lecturers who give CA feedback to their students. A quasi-experimental study involving two random groups, treatment post-test design was adopted. The two groups involved in the study are group A with CA feedback (CAWF) and group B without CA feedback (CAWOF). A systematic sample of 42 participants was drawn from a population of 210 Biology/Chemistry student teachers who took Measurement and Evaluation as an education course using their CA scores. The sample was split into two equal halves of 21 each to form group A (CAWF) and group B (CAWOF) respectively using random sampling techniques by balloting. The instruments used for data collection were researchers-made items as well as face to face interview. Three research questions and three hypotheses were postulated. Frequency tables were used to present data which were used to answer each of the research questions. Independent samples t-tests were used to test hypotheses 1 and 2, while binomial test was used to test hypothesis 3. Findings showed a significant difference between the mean performances of CAWF group (70.2) and the CAWOF group (53.8). However, the end of semester total examination scores does not significantly differ according to gender. The proportion of lecturers who give CA feedback to students was 0.28. Among other recommendations is that lecturers should be trained in implementing CA strategies (especially the area of giving feedback) as it has direct effect on students performance in end of semester examination.

    • Authors: Nguyen Thi Yen Phuong
      Pages: 703 - 709
      Abstract: Theory of constructivism was suggested in the early 20th century by Jean Piaget (1896 – 1980, a Swiss psychologist and epistemologist); since then, it has been applied to many fields, especially in education. In many countries, including Vietnam, the theory of constructivism has become one of the main tendencies in reforming education. Building and managing schools based on constructivism, also known as model constructive schools, are becoming the orientation of developing modern education. To achieve this model, the utmost prerequisite is to have qualified managing and teaching staff that can fulfill the school developing requirements. Hanoi Retraining College for Teachers and Educational Managers has been given a very important task of “Strengthen professional knowledge and career service for staff and teachers who manage and teach in the educational institutions in Hanoi”. In this paper, orientational solutions to fulfill the requirements in developing institutions based on the theory of constructivism in Vietnam are proposed.

           in Vietnam

    • Authors: Nguyen Cong Khanh; Nguyen Vinh Quang
      Pages: 710 - 715
      Abstract: This article presents scientific basis for developing student outcome framework for high school teacher training programs. The student outcome framework built in direction of approaching students’ qualities, capacities includes 5 standards: Developing personal qualities and profession values; General capacity; Specialistic capacity; Pedagogical competence; Profession development capacity. Based on this framework, education universities build student outcome standard for each faculty by relying on a system of controlled steps. Each outcome standard of a training program must determine specific requirements of profession competencies. Each standard consists of the criteria of competence. And each criterion is specifically divided into 2-3 indicators and the outcome will base on a 7-level scale for assessment. This is to ensure correctly evaluating capacities of graduates from high school teacher training programs.

      Pages: 722 - 728
      Abstract: This paper aims to explore the status quo of English learning anxiety of Chinese EFL high school students to provide suggestions to deduce it. Foreign Language Classroom Anxiety Scale (FLCAS) is used to make an investigation into 293 high school students of different grades in Yuemiao High School in China. By both qualitative and quantitative analyses of data collected from the questionnaires, it finds out that ① a medium level of English learning anxiety existed widely in the students of Yuemiao High School (M=3.115, SD=0.58). Test Anxiety is the highest (Mean=3.244). Fear of Negative Evaluation is the lowest (Mean=2.981). ② In terms of grade, three grades have statistically significant differences in anxiety (p=0.005 Mean (Female) =3.058). ④ In terms of different majors, there is no statistical significance in English learning anxiety (p>0.05). Therefore, to minimize students’ English learning anxiety, English teachers should improve their teaching skills, build a better and more harmonious relationship with students to attract students’ interest and explore a cooperative learning mode between male and female students.

  • From Hierarchical Power Structures to Rhizomatic Possibilities: An
           Argument for Affective Systems in US Public Schools

    • Authors: Deborah Ribera
      Pages: 735 - 740
      Abstract: For more than 100 years, the US public education system has remained faithful to its hierarchical power structure, constructing knowledge at the top through state and federal efforts, then disseminating it down to districts, schools, administrators, teachers, and finally students. This paper argues that the assumed naturalism of this hierarchical power structure has resulted in a system that consistently fails to provide adequate services to urban, poor students of color as evidenced by the high rates of school dropout among this population. The contemporary issue of dropout in urban public schools is first located in the historiography of the Progressive Era. Next, a critically reflexive case study of the author's experience working as a dropout prevention counselor for a large urban school district is presented. Lastly, the issue of dropout is re-located through affective contextualization, articulating what could emerge with a shift from hierarchical power structures to rhizomatic possibilities.

  • Effective Social work Intervention to Reduce Aggressive Behavior in
           School: A Case Study in Vietnam

    • Authors: Pham Van Tu; Nguyen Thu Ha, Nguyen Viet Hung
      Pages: 779 - 787
      Abstract: This paper presents the case of a 14-year-old boy with aggressive behavior who demonstrated no interest in participating in therapy. The aims of the paper were to present a multiple therapy design as an effective measurement for social workers to use in their regular intervention process; to learn about the relative effectiveness of three common methods for addressing aggressive behavior (behavior therapy being used in teacher supervision and parental counseling and cognitive therapy being used in the child’s individual therapy); and to present a self-control model for improving the child’s behavior. The case study pointed to the efficacy of the self-control model for helping the child change. Therapy facilitated a significant decrease in the child’s aggressive behavior as well as a significant increase in the child’s self-control and social interaction. Also, the case study presented the feasibility of the single case design as an effective way for social workers to assess and evaluate their intervention.

      Pages: 845 - 857
      Abstract: This study looks at some significant variables in Adventist schools in relation to organizational citizenship behavior (OCB). The study is designed to address the problem, “To what extent does transformational leadership relate to the OCB of the teachers'” The study seeks to provide a better theoretical understanding of OCB in Adventist schools in Kenya. One of the elements that enhance the performance of an organization is the OCB of its workers. Although OCB is important, little is known about the factors contributing to willingness of teachers going an extra mile in their workplace. The respondents were 170 teachers from Adventist schools in Kenya. The teachers responded to 2 instruments along with demographic variables. These were the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire and Organizational Citizenship Behavior Scale. The instruments utilized in the study (MLQ and OCB) were adequate for utilization in Adventist schools in Kenya. Teachers with lower than bachelor’s degree education, below 30 years of age, and have been teaching for less than one year in the school were significantly different than other categories, on transformational leadership style and OCB.
