  • Investigating Teachers’ Pedagogical Experiences with Tablet Integration
           in Korean Rural Schools
    • Authors: Hye Jeong Kim; Hyeoncheol Kim
      Pages: 107 - 116
      Abstract: The goal of this study is to explore the perceptions of teachers in Korean rural schools regarding teaching and learning, including technology preparedness, performance, demanding activities, difficulties, and continuing integration in tablet-based interactive classrooms. A survey instrument was designed, and responses were analyzed from 54 teachers who participated in a social contribution project for rural schools. The results indicate that student preparedness is significantly correlated with the frequent integration of tablets in classroom lessons. Furthermore, the most frequent types of pedagogical activities performed using tablets in the classroom are activities intended to motivate students. Teachers noted that their continuing integration of lessons with tablets was correlated with their beliefs about the applicability of tablets for lessons, students’ satisfaction with previous lessons, students’ expectations and requests, and the teacher’s personal interests. This research contributes to the literature on tablet integration by extending existing findings to the study of rural schools with limited educational resources. Moreover, this study provides implications for educators and school administrators who are interested in supporting teachers and their instruction using tablets and relevant technologies.

  • Understanding Interpersonal Meaning-Making in Chinese High School
           Students’ ESL Writing: A Systemic Functional Perspective
    • Authors: Wenhui Xuan; Xue’e Huang
      Abstract: Drawing on the framework of Modality from systemic functional linguistics, the present study aimed to explore adolescent ESL learners’ interpersonal meaning-making. Data were collected from 10 writing tasks completed by a group of 50 adolescent ESL learners in China. Functional text analysis was utilized to analyze the data, including Modality types, orientation, value, and polarity. The finding revealed that overuse of certain types of modal verbs is common in Chinese ESL learners’ writing, for instance, the case of “can”. Most of the modality deployed was simple and congruent. In conclusion, systematic introduction of Modality and the provision of more contexts for learners to practice them are highly recommended in such a context.

  • Exploring Novice EFL Teachers’ Classroom Assessment Literacy
           Development: A Three-Year Longitudinal Study
    • Authors: Hao Xu
      Abstract: This three-year longitudinal study examines the development of four Chinese novice EFL teachers’ classroom assessment literacy, which refers to teachers’ knowledge of and abilities to conduct classroom assessment and is reflected in their planned and improvised assessment practices. The dataset includes 26 classroom observations, 48 interviews, and 171 participants’ journal entries. Data analysis following the paradigmatic analytic procedures reveals three developmental stages for novice teachers’ classroom assessment literacy: the first stage features the acquisition of practical techniques for planned classroom assessment; the second stage allows novice teachers to gain a growing awareness to connect planned classroom assessment to teaching objectives, but the usefulness of assessment results in teaching adjustments was only confined to an improved plan of a future teaching situation; in the third stage, novice teachers are more inclined to conduct improvised formative assessment in teaching which shows immediate assessment-driven teaching improvements in response to dynamic classroom interactions.

  • Students’ Self-Efficacy and Attitudes Toward Web-Based Recipe Learning
           in Taiwan Culinary Education
    • Authors: Ching-Yeh Wang; Meng-Jung Tsai
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to explore the relationships between the self-efficacies and the attitudes toward Web-based Recipe Learning (WRL) of 296 culinary college students in Taiwan. Factors of the WRL Self-Efficacy Scale and the WRL Attitudes Scale were identified in this study using exploratory factor analyses. Both scales showed a good inter-correlation matrix. Correlation and mediational effect analyses were used to examine the relationships between the students’ self-efficacy and attitudes, and several significant findings are reported. First, students’ self-efficacies had positive relations with their attitudes toward WRL. In addition, students’ ‘Ingredient Recognition’ self-efficacy was found to significantly predict the other two dimensions of self-efficacy: ‘Knife Skills’ and ‘Cooking Procedure.’ Moreover, students’ ‘Ingredient Recognition’ self-efficacy was found to significantly predict their WRL attitudes of ‘Usefulness’ via a mediated variable, ‘Cooking Procedure’ self-efficacy. To sum up, the results suggest that ‘Ingredient Recognition’ is a fundamental level of WRL self-efficacy, while both ‘Knife Skills’ and ‘Cooking Procedure’ are advanced levels of WRL self-efficacies. And, when considering the mediational effect, culinary college students’ self-efficacy for cooking procedure is an important mediator between the fundamental self-efficacy and attitudes in web-based culinary learning.

  • Understanding College Students’ Intrinsic Motivation and Social
           Interdependence in Intercultural Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning
           Between USA and China
    • Authors: Jason MacLeod; Harrison Hao Yang; Zongping Xiang
      Abstract: Research has identified the need for additional teaching strategies to address issues within intercultural computer-supported collaborative learning (iCSCL) environments. While some strategies have been proposed to support teacher effectiveness and student participation, to date no research has traced issues back to students’ underlying, intrinsic motivation for participation, or perception of social interdependence in small-group collaboration processes. To increase understanding of these critical aspects of learning, this study utilized a mixed methods approach to analyze the intrinsic motivation and social interdependence of 40 students enrolled in two universities, and participating in small-group intercultural computer-supported collaborations between the USA and China. The findings identified different sources of intrinsic motivation between the two cultures and five hierarchically different perceptions of social interdependence. The implications include the emergence of four teaching strategies which support the teachers’ ability of aligning students’ understanding of what type of participation is expected and motivating students’ interests to successfully participate in iCSCL environments.

  • Bringing Voluntary Financial Education in Emerging Economy: Role of
           Financial Socialization During Elementary Years
    • Authors: Ratna Candra Sari; P. L. Rika Fatimah; Suyanto
      Abstract: The level of financial literacy tends to be low in children, while information and financial education for children are very limited, especially in developing countries without mandatory financial education in schools. This study examined the effects of a classroom financial education program on financial knowledge. We used “Financial Intelligence Curriculum” designed for elementary school students from grade 1–6, focusing on the need and want, priority needs, income, spending, saving, and sharing. Using experimental method with pre-post-test and control group design, we found that the treatment group who received financial education has improved financial knowledge relative to the control group. The study provides evidence that elementary school students are appropriate targets for financial education and that it is necessary to develop mechanisms for effective learning to improve financial capability at an early age.

  • Self-Fulfillment in Higher Education: Contributions from Mastery Goal,
           Intrinsic Motivation, and Assertions
    • Authors: Ali Hosseini Baygi; Behzad Ghonsooly; Afsaneh Ghanizadeh
      Abstract: Effective learners are cognizant of their own basic needs and abilities so as to maximize their capabilities, dispositions, as well as potentialities up to become self-actualized individuals. To delve into the process of university students' self-actualization, we strived to amalgamate this construct with two motivational-associated factors, i.e., mastery goal and intrinsic motivation. To do so, a three-phase mixed-methods study was designed. In the first phase, the reliability and validity of the ‘Measurement of Actualization of Potential (MAP)’ (measuring five sub-scales, namely, openness to self, openness to others, openness to life, adaptability, and autonomy) were determined in the present study via a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). In the second phase, our proposed model containing the three constructs was examined using a structural equation modeling (SEM). Eventually, to procure a deeper perception of self-fulfillment valence in actual behaviors, feelings, and assertions of the participants, a semi-structured interview was conducted on seven randomly selected participants from a general sample population of 253 Iranian university students in its first and second phases. The results demonstrated that the proposed model had a good fit with the empirical data. The contribution of mastery goal and intrinsic motivation was demonstrated in the model. It was also found that among the sub-scales of self-fulfillment, ‘openness to self’ had the highest association with intrinsic motivation followed by ‘openness to life.’ Mastery goal had the highest correlation with ‘openness to life’ followed by ‘autonomy.’ The analysis of interview protocol revealed that self-rating percentages of the delineated lists were all in congruence with the number of selected activities and traits the respondents preferred.

  • Challenges Encountered in a Chinese Immersion Program in the United States
    • Authors: Ya-Ling Chen; Ting-An Yang; Hsiuling Lydia Chen
      Abstract: The rapid rise of Asian economies has increased the popularity of learning Chinese language worldwide. Although CIP have become popular in the United States, research into these programs is scant. This study explores the practices and challenges of one such Chinese immersion program by using a case study methodology to gain in-depth insights. The case school is a state-funded nonprofit organization created by a group of community members. The main research participants were teachers of the kindergarten levels of immersion classes. The researchers used semistructured interviews, an online questionnaire, and document collection to obtain data. The main challenges faced by the CIPs are as follows: (1) difficulty in recruiting qualified teachers; (2) insufficient professional development; (3) difficulty in balancing content and language instruction; (4) insufficient use of Chinese; and (5) shortage of external resource support. Strategies to overcome these obstacles encountered in CIP have been discussed and suggested in this paper.

  • The Moderating Effects of Internet Parenting Styles on the Relationship
           Between Internet Parenting Behavior, Internet Expectancy, and Internet
           Addiction Tendency
    • Authors: Chien Chou; Yuan-Hsuan Lee
      Abstract: This study investigated the moderating effect of children’s perceived Internet parenting styles (IPS) on the relationship among their perceived Internet parenting behaviors (operationalized as warmth and control on Internet use from their parents), Internet expectancy (IE), and Internet addiction tendency (IAT). Participants were 3169 Taiwanese junior high school students ages 13–16. Results exhibited a dominance of both authoritative and authoritarian IPSs. Boys tended to perceive a permissive or neglectful IPS from their parents, while girls tended to perceive an authoritarian or authoritative IPS. IE and control had a consistent positive direct relationship with IAT across all IPS models. The hypothesized indirect effect was significant for the authoritarian parenting model from control to IAT and for the neglectful parenting model from both warmth and control to IAT. The study result implied that the quality of Internet parenting behaviors as demonstrated by different IPSs may be related with changes in students’ IE and IAT. Evidence from children’s amount of Internet use, their gender, and parental education level provided additional support on the study findings. The study results would shed light on the role of family function on students’ Internet use and provide suggestions on Internet parenting to reduce possible IAT.

  • Pre-service English Teachers’ Reticent Beliefs Towards Oral
           Participation in EAP Classrooms
    • Authors: Ruey Shing Soo; Hock Seng Goh
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate pre-service English teachers’ reticent beliefs towards oral participation in English for Academic Purpose classrooms. To this end, 144 Malaysian pre-service English teachers enrolled in a teacher-training programme participated as respondents in a survey conducted using the Reticent Belief Index. They were all diagnosed with high level of reticence prior to the study. In addition, 24 pre-service teachers, selected randomly from among the survey participants, took part in focus group discussions. The results of the study revealed that the majority of the pre-service English teachers subscribed to eight beliefs that are presumed to be associated with reticent behaviour. Additionally, a newly identified belief, ‘Kiasuim’ was also found to cause the pre-service teachers being reticent in the class. The results of the study point to the importance of alleviating pre-service teachers’ reticent behaviour via a remedial course which incorporates the elements of modifying reticent beliefs.

           Hospitality Education
    • Authors: Salott Chau; Catherine Cheung
      Abstract: Active learning connects students to the real life situations they will encounter in their future jobs. In hospitality education, active learning implements various lively, fun activities to introduce practical scenarios students may experience in their hospitality careers. This study identifies 18 essential active-learning items of hospitality education through a comprehensive literature review and in-depth personal and focus group interviews with 19 hospitality educators and eight hospitality students in Asia. This paper discusses the potential benefits of using active learning, and its relationship with two major student engagement themes: “knowledge seeking” and “skills enhancement.”

  • Teachers’ Priorities for Change in Australian Schools to Support
           Staff Well-Being
    • Authors: Adam Garrick; Anita S. Mak; Stuart Cathcart; Peter C. Winwood; Arnold B. Bakker; Kurt Lushington
      Abstract: This study explored Australian school teachers’ priorities for change within schools in order to support staff psychological well-being. We began by holding a focus group and, in corroborating with the existing literature on stressors reported by school teachers, identified seven key areas for change in schools that teachers thought would most support their well-being at work. An online survey was then conducted with teachers from across Australia (N = 960), who ranked each of these suggestions in order of importance. Results found that the most important needs for change according to teachers were smaller class sizes and improved measures for student behaviour management. These results offer insight into areas for organisational change that teachers think are most important for their own well-being. We discuss the findings in relation to psychological research as well as current issues within the Australian education sector.

  • Developing Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) Through Module Team
           Collaboration: A Case Study of Business English Teachers in China
    • Authors: Peng Wu; Shulin Yu
      Abstract: Informed by literature on developing pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) through teacher collaboration, this study aims to investigate the trajectory of PCK development among business English teachers through module team collaboration in Chinese context. Drawing upon multiple sources of data including observation, semi-structured interview, and teaching materials from three case teachers, this study explores how PCK components were developed in one academic year when case teachers participated in module team collaborative activities. The findings show the individual differences among the three participants in their PCK development and reveal that two key PCK components—Knowledge of students’ understanding and Knowledge of instructional strategies have developed through teacher collaboration. This study suggests the collective inquiry in teacher collaboration.

  • Cultural Historical Activity Theory (CHAT): Influenced Case Research of a
           Philippine Physics Class
    • Authors: Marie Paz E. Morales
      Abstract: The study critically explored the case of Pangasinan learners’ physics learning process using culture and language-influenced curriculum materials in physics (CLI-CMP). Case research using cultural historical activity theory (CHAT) designed the study to provide unique ideas on how socio-cultural theory, a recent field of study of Physics Education Research, works best and contributes through a bottom-up approach to the body of knowledge in this research area. Sampled 48 grade 10 participants and their physics teacher, a Pangasinan native, used the designed CLI-CMP for 10 weeks to determine how effective the tool is in addressing student misconceptions in physics. Data gathered from the design and development of the CLI-CMP, classroom observations, interviews, and focus-group-discussions extracted information on how the customized curriculum materials provided means of meaning making and conceptual change, which may eventually lead to achieving scientific literacy. The results show that better conceptual understanding observed in the physics class may be significantly due to the socio-culturally influenced curriculum materials. Further analysis using CHAT framework (methodical level) determined the coherence and progressive characteristics of the activities in a particular physics unit which matched Engeström’s expansive learning cycle and served as a suited tool to mediate the subject to the object and to the goal attainment. Exploration of the learning process using the epistemological level of analysis of CHAT framework provided how the mediating tool may have addressed the noted student misconception emphasizing learning science as participatory to the community and socio-culturally influenced.

  • Efficacy of an Academic Vocabulary Intervention for Low-Income Children
    • Authors: Min-Jin Kim
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of a storybook-based academic vocabulary learning intervention for young children from low-income families. The transition to primary school is particularly challenging for low-income children. To help smooth this transition, this study implemented an academic vocabulary learning program using storybook-based activities. High-frequency general academic vocabulary was extracted from a corpus compiled from transcripts of kindergarten and primary-level classroom instruction, primary-level textbooks, and lesson plans presented in kindergarten curriculum guidelines. An experimental group was provided with opportunities to learn the target academic vocabulary while reading storybooks and participating in follow-up activities, when a control group participated in regular shared storybook reading sessions. The study found that the experimental group showed significantly more growth than the control group in knowledge of the target academic vocabulary.

  • From Test Performance to Language Use: Using Self-Assessment to Validate a
           High-Stakes English Proficiency Test
    • Authors: Jinsong Fan; Xun Yan
      Abstract: Despite the profusion of studies into the factor structure of language tests, limited research is currently available on the relationship between test performance and language use in TLU domains. Utilizing the structural equation modeling approach, this study set out to investigate the factor structure of a high-stakes university-based English proficiency test, and then modeled the relationship between test takers’ performance and their ability to use language in TLU domains. A self-assessment (SA) inventory was developed and validated to capture test takers’ ability to use language in TLU domains. The results showed that the higher-order factor model best fit both the test and SA data. Structural regression analysis indicated a moderately strong relationship between students’ general EFL ability and the SA latent factor. The results of this study lend empirical support to the construct and predictive validity of the test, both of which are deemed crucial to its overall validity argument. The results also shed light on the utility of SA to capture language use in TLU domains as well as the use of SA for test validation purposes.

  • Native and Non-native Teachers’ Perceptions of Error Gravity: The
           Effects of Cultural and Educational Factors
    • Authors: Zhenhui Rao; Xin Li
      Abstract: This study investigates the perceptions of error gravity by native and non-native teachers of English in a Chinese context. Drawing on the data collected from a questionnaire, we examined the practices of error evaluation by 22 native English-speaking (NES) teachers and 25 non-native English-speaking (NNES) teachers. Participants were asked to identify student errors based on a random selection of fifty compositions written by Chinese university students, correct the errors of the sentences, and indicate which errors they considered the most serious. General comparison of error evaluation between the two groups of teachers reveals that NES teachers are generally more tolerant of student errors and rely more on intelligibility rather than rule infringement. An in-depth analysis of these findings suggests that these differences are closely connected with the participants’ cultural belief, educational background, teaching style, and English proficiency.

  • Enhancement of Higher Degree Candidates’ Research Literacy: A Pilot
           Study of International Students
    • Authors: Jinghe Han; James Schuurmans-Stekhoven
      Abstract: Research literacy (RL) training for higher degree research (HDR) students has been reduced to information technology focus by librarians and as writing practice in research supervision which is an ‘underdress’ for the issue. This paper argues that holistic research literacy training support should be provided to HDR students, especially those from Asia, being regarded as having serious plagiarism problem in their research study. A three-step framework that covers technological searching and locating, accurate understanding and interpretation, and critical evaluation and synthesis of information was developed and examined in this study. Two cohorts of Asian HDR students enrolled in an Australian university were involved through a parallel group, pre–post test design. One group progressed with ‘supervision-as-usual’ (SAU), whilst the other received SAU plus formal research literacy workshops. Supplementary data were also collected from the intervention cohort through focus group interviews. Data reveal that an early stage of intervention, using the holistic RL framework developed in this research, can largely improve students’ skills with technological searching and locating of information. Data also indicate that students also improved in the aspects of interpreting and synthesising information but this improvement was not as great. This is partly due to their use of English as the second language. This study suggests that language elements should be integrated into the RL framework for students with English as the second language.

  • Cross-Sectional Study on Chinese Secondary School Students’ Epistemic
           Beliefs and Fallacy Identification
    • Authors: Wincy W. S. Lee; Victor C. W. Chan
      Abstract: Individuals hold different epistemic beliefs at different ages, and these beliefs can affect a wide range of reasoning tasks. The present study examined Chinese secondary school students’ epistemic beliefs at different grade levels, and how these related to the students’ abilities to identify various forms of fallacy with the use of a cross-sectional design. One hundred and forty-six Chinese secondary school students (Grade 7 N = 32, Grade 9 N = 40, Grade 10 N = 36, and Grade 11 N = 38) completed a 14-item Epistemic Beliefs Questionnaire and a set of fallacy tasks. CFA showed that the questionnaire measured the four dimensions of the secondary school student samples adequately. A non-linear trend of epistemic beliefs across different grades was found and analyses using MANOVA showed significant grade differences in the dimension of Certainty (Grade 7 vs. 10 vs. 11). χ 2 tests showed only significant grade difference in the fallacy of Appeal to Authority (Grade 7 vs Grade 9; Grade 7 vs. 10). Finally, only grade, but not epistemic beliefs, predicted fallacy identification (Appeal to Authority) when all variables were considered in the ordinal logistic regression model. The issue of epistemic dimensions change and students’ informal reasoning ability are discussed in light of the Chinese culture.
