  • Young Children’s Conceptions of Learning: A Cross-Sectional Study of the
           Early Years of Schooling
    • Abstract: This cross-sectional research was conducted to probe how 626 Taiwanese children’s conceptions of learning differ by age and gender via drawing. Participants were from the kindergarten, the first grade, and the third grade. A coding scheme categorizing the people, learning domain, and place in the drawings was developed. Chi-square tests were then performed to examine the associations among the children’s three grade levels, gender, and three categories: people, learning domain, and place. The findings showed that the kindergarteners tended to draw more family members as well as family and outdoor scenes, while the third graders tended to draw more school figures as well as classroom and school outdoor scenes. The first graders drew more peers than the third graders did. The kindergarteners drew significantly more social, informal, and playful activities than the other two groups did. The place for literacy learning switched from school (kindergarteners and first graders) to home (third graders). No gender difference was identified. This study provides insight into developing curricula that smooth children’s transition from kindergarten to elementary school.

  • Using Activity Theory to Analyse Contradictions in English Teachers’
           Technology Integration
    • Abstract: This paper reports on a qualitative research project investigating the integration of technology by three English teachers in a public secondary school in Indonesia. Third generation activity theory and Engeström and Sannino’s (J Organ Change Manag 24(3):368–387, 2011) methodological framework for the identification and analysis of different types of discursive manifestations of contradictions are used to identify tensions within and between the activity systems of the teachers and school management related to the expectation that teachers make use of the school’s investment in technology. Four types of contradictions are identified: a dilemma related to teachers’ perceived value and use of technology for personal and professional purposes; a conflict focused on the support required for teachers’ technology integration; a conflict related to teachers’ workload and a critical conflict related to the silencing of teachers in decision making. The identification of these contradictions highlights the necessity for policy makers, school leaders, teachers and the research community to work collaboratively to ensure that students have opportunities to use technology for their social, civic and economic well-being.

  • Self-efficacy and Self-concept as Predictors of Language Learning
           Achievements in an Asian Bilingual Context
    • Abstract: This study investigated the relationships between students’ self-efficacy and self-concept for learning languages and students’ academic achievement in learning English and Chinese. 1092 eighth to eleventh graders from four Hong Kong secondary schools completed questionnaires reporting their self-efficacy, self-concept and academic results for Chinese language and English language. Results indicated that Chinese language self-efficacy and self-concept were significant predictors for Chinese language learning achievements. English language self-efficacy and self-concept predicted both students’ English and Chinese learning achievements. These results provide some support for both the domain specificity of self-efficacy and the internal/external frame of reference effect. There is also support for the notion that learning English language facilitates the learning of Chinese language but not the other way around.

  • Are Better Teachers More Likely To Move' Examining Teacher Mobility In
           Rural China
    • Abstract: This study investigates an understudied but crucial issue in education in rural China: teacher mobility. Using school- and teacher-level data from primary and middle schools in Gansu province in western China, this study examines how school and teacher characteristics relate to teacher mobility. The school-level analysis shows that school location was the most consistent factor associated with teacher turnover. The association between higher wages and lower teacher turnover diminished as district and wave fixed effects were included. The probability of teacher turnover was higher for teachers with higher professional ranks and teachers who were initially assigned to schools away from home. We also found that failing the annual teacher evaluation increased the probability of leaving the school the following year, suggesting that teacher transfer might also be used to punish lower-performing teachers.

  • Academic Discourse Socialization in a Research Seminar Course: A Case
           Study of a Japanese EFL Undergraduate Learner
    • Abstract: This study presents a case study of academic discourse socialization in a Japanese EFL student in a research seminar course to understand the content of a scholarly book in English. Drawn on theoretical perspectives of language socialization and community of practice, an 8-month case study investigated how the participant was socialized into the disciplinary community through her study of an English-language scholarly textbook in a research seminar course. Data were collected from weekly reflection journals, a final narrative assignment, and individual interviews with the participant. These data were coded to identify the thematic categories. Findings showed that the participant came to be socialized into her specialized community through interacting with peers in the classroom and cultivating her expertise. Then, the participant created a social network outside the classroom, encouraging casual discussions with her friends on topics she was learning about in class. Based on the findings, this article suggests that there are parallels between academic discourse socialization in EFL contexts and those in English-speaking contexts, beginning to bridge a gap in research across learning settings. Implications for pedagogy and future research are discussed.

  • ‘You know what, this is kind of helping me’: Students’ Experiences
           of a Hong Kong School-Based Mentoring Programme
    • Abstract: Ten semi-structured interviews were conducted with ethnically Chinese adolescents enrolled into a school-based mentoring programme at a private secondary school in Hong Kong. Interview data were analysed thematically and two themes developed: ‘experiencing mentoring’ and ‘experiencing the mentor’. The mentees, although initially sceptical about mentoring, were surprised by its helpfulness. Through the development of an informal and collaborative relationship in which students experienced their mentor as a trustworthy, mature and objective adult, students found an important source of emotional support and practical help which benefited their academic work. Students’ experience was influenced by their mentors’ role in the school, length of service and gender match. School-based mentoring programmes in a Hong Kong context have the potential to offer emotional and academic support to students. Cultural factors may have an impact on the experience of mentoring which schools should take into account when setting up such programmes.

  • Taiwanese EFL Learners’ Willingness to Communicate in English in the
           Classroom: Impacts of Personality, Affect, Motivation, and Communication
           Confidence
    • Abstract: This research investigates the variables influencing willingness to communicate (WTC) in English as a foreign language (EFL) context in Taiwan. A hypothesized EFL WTC model with six layers focusing on factors related to individual differences was proposed and the EFL WTC model was reinterpreted as a serial mediation model. Ten latent variables, including openness to experience, conscientiousness, agreeableness, extraversion, neuroticism, international posture, motivation, self-perceived communication confidence, EFL WTC, and frequency of using English in the classroom, were used to construct the model. Stratified random sampling was adopted and a questionnaire was administered to 701 university students in Taiwan. The results of structural equation modeling indicated that the EFL WTC model was an adequate fit to the Taiwanese context and validated the reinterpretation of the model as a serial mediation model. The findings supported the interrelationships among different variables and provided a different perspective on WTC in an EFL context.

  • Equitable Access to Informal Science Education Institutions
    • Abstract: Science for all is a global educational pursuit; however, the realities in formal science education show that it is a goal still challenged by inequitable outcomes that are marked by gender, race/ethnicity, language, culture, and socioeconomic status. Whether these inequities persist in the informal settings still remained a question that is open for more investigation. This empirical study aims to examine the factors that relate to access to informal science education institutions. A representative sample of 1611 Taiwanese adults was asked if they have visited six popular informal science education institutions in the last 12 months. Nine factors related to travel distance, social demography, and scientific literacy, were included to explain the likelihood of visiting each institution. The findings showed that the travel distance, education, presence of children, interest in scientific issues, and attitudes toward these institutions were statistically significant predictors of visitation. The paper provides empirical and practical implications to help informal science educators and policy makers to ensure equitable access to these institutions for all.

  • A Content Analysis of Computational Thinking Research: An International
           Publication Trends and Research Typology
    • Abstract: This paper aims to provide a comprehensive analysis of publication patterns on computational thinking (CT) over two recent periods (period I: 2006–2012; period II: 2013–2018). Based on keyword analysis, a total of 3798 (period I) and 7175 (period II) keywords were found. Derived from the content analysis, a research typology of two-period keywords was consolidated and framed according to its attributes, including background settings, domain-specific factors, and learning outcomes. Main findings show as follows: (1) Regarding the research background, students from secondary and higher education are the main participants; and computer science, mathematics, and engineering are the major subjects. (2) As the domain-specific factors, game and peer collaboration were found to be the main pedagogies, while web-based and face-to-face learning environments were almost equally referred to in CT research settings. However, compared with traditional command-based tools, Scratch, Lego, and Python were identified as the emerging visual-based programming languages. (3) Finally, the keywords related to learning outcomes were classified based on the Bloom’s framework of three learning domains. First, knowledge and mental understanding are the main goals in the cognitive domain; motivation and attitude are the main tasks in the affective domain; and social and communication skills are the central outcomes in the training of psychomotor ability. Further discussions and research directions are provided.

  • Building Assessments for Self-Efficacy in English Public Speaking in China
    • Abstract: Due to globalization, an increasing need for advanced speaking skills, and the interest aroused by English public speaking (EPS) competitions, EPS is increasingly important, especially among university students. Although self-efficacy is strongly associated with performance, no psychometrically sound instruments to measure EPS self-efficacy among college-level learners have been developed to date. Grounded in Bandura’s self-efficacy theory, the present study established validity (content and construct) and reliability (scale and item) evidence for two new instruments: the EPS Self-Efficacy Scale (ESES) and the Sources of EPS Self-Efficacy Scale (SSES). Results of exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses in Sample A (n = 406) confirmed the hypothesized EPS competency-related self-efficacy gaged by ESES. Results in Sample B (n = 270) supported four sources of EPS self-efficacy as gaged by SSES. Correlation analyses in Sample C (n = 263) contributed to the refinement of self-efficacy theory within the EPS domain. The two new measures will help practitioners gage their students’ EPS self-efficacy and its development and enable future investigations of the role EPS self-efficacy plays in language learning.

  • The Role of Subjective Task Value in Forming Satisfaction and Loyalty
           Among Vietnamese International Students: A Structural Equation Model
    • Abstract: Relationship with international students can be beneficial to higher education in terms of financial and human resources. For this reason, establishing and maintaining such relationship are usually pre-eminent concerns for higher education providers. In this study, we extended the application of the disconfirmation-expectation model by incorporating three components from subjective task value (i.e., attainment, utility, and intrinsic) to predict the loyalty of international students toward their host countries. On a sample of 410 Vietnamese students enrolled in higher education institutions in over 15 countries across the globe, we employed structural equation model to validate the conceptual model. Our empirical findings revealed that satisfaction and disconfirmation still play important roles as direct and indirect antecedents of international student loyalty, respectively; nonetheless, the most impactful predictor is intrinsic value which directly and indirectly affects loyalty through the mediating roles of satisfaction and disconfirmation. Meanwhile, our findings also unveiled that attainment value has slight impact, but utility value does not have any impact on loyalty. A number of implications might be withdrawn for heads of universities and policy makers while practicing in internationalization of higher education as a consequence of these above results.

  • Connecting Plans to Action: The Effects of a Card-Coded Robotics
           Curriculum and Activities on Korean Kindergartners
    • Abstract: This study examined the effects of a card-coded robotics curriculum and associated activities on kindergarteners’ sequencing and problem-solving skills, which are forms of computational thinking. Kindergarteners participated in card-coded programming using a robot called TurtleBot. A card-coded robot curricular intervention was also designed to enhance their planning behaviors using complementary tools. This study examined an 8-week robotic curricular intervention through assessment of 53 participants ranging in age from 5 to 6, while also evaluating sequencing and mathematical problem-solving in both the treatment and comparison groups. It was found that children in the treatment group who engaged in the card-coded robotic curricular intervention performed better on sequencing and problem-solving tests. This finding indicates that an enhanced planning experience using card-coded robots was beneficial for improving young children’s thinking skills. The implications for designing appropriate curricula using robots for kindergarteners are addressed.

  • Emotional Engagement and Student Satisfaction: A Study of Chinese College
           Students Based on a Nationally Representative Sample
    • Abstract: This study aimed to examine Chinese college students' engagement and satisfaction with their university learning experience. In particular, the study focused on emotional engagement and how it was associated with student satisfaction. Nationally representative data from the 2012 China College Student Survey (CCSS) which drew from 55 higher education institutions (N = 67,182; 45.6% female) indicated that Chinese students had high levels of emotional engagement. Emotional engagement positively predicted student satisfaction and also moderated the effect of cognitive engagement on satisfaction. Educational implications are discussed.

  • Identifying Taiwanese Teachers’ Perceived Self-efficacy for Science,
           Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Knowledge
    • Abstract: This study, first of all, aimed to develop a new survey to assess Taiwanese teachers’ perceived self-efficacy in STEM knowledge. Second, it aimed to probe any differences in teachers’ perceived self-efficacy in STEM knowledge regarding their gender and teaching subjects. Last, we examined the structural relations among teachers’ perceived self-efficacy in STEM knowledge and their attitudes toward STEM education. The participants were 220 high school teachers in Taiwan. The 30-item instrument consisted of six factors: scientific inquiry, technology use, engineering design, mathematical thinking, and synthesized knowledge of STEM, as well as attitudes toward STEM education. The results showed that the proposed instrument was valid and reliable. In addition, male teachers outperformed female teachers in each dimension of the survey. Last, teachers’ self-efficacy in synthesized knowledge of STEM had two mediating effects. One was in the relationship between self-efficacy in engineering design and attitudes toward STEM education. The other was in the relationship between self-efficacy in Mathematical Thinking and Attitudes toward STEM education.

    • Abstract: STEM learning is an integrated approach to improving learners’ problem-solving capacity and 21st-century skills by engaging them in systematic investigation that requires interdisciplinary knowledge. This study aimed to examine whether the design of an innovative knowledge-building environment facilitates STEM learning. Participants were university students engaging in in-depth group projects to design a piece of living-technology product. Data were obtained from student groups’ online discussion of their STEM projects. Both quantitative and qualitative analyses of student groups’ knowledge-building activities, including fostering a strong sense of community, working productively with ideas, and assuming higher-level agency, provided evidence of students’ deep engagement in the design of their STEM projects. Recommendations for the design of effective STEM learning environments are offered.

  • Exploring the Effects of Contextual Factors on In-Service Teachers’
           Engagement in STEM Teaching
    • Abstract: Teachers’ self-efficacy and engagement in classroom teaching play critical roles in making the integrated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education happen. However, the potential factors influencing teachers’ self-efficacy and engagement in STEM teaching have yet to be examined. This study constructed a hypothesized model including teaching self-efficacy, pedagogical design self-efficacy, discipline knowledge, administration support, and collegial support and investigated their structural effects on teacher engagement based on the survey of 458 Chinese teachers. Results of structural equation modeling revealed teaching self-efficacy, pedagogical design self-efficacy, and collegial support were the important predictors of teachers’ engagement in STEM teaching. Meanwhile, teachers’ discipline knowledge and administration support positively influenced teaching self-efficacy which in turn influenced teacher engagement. Findings of this study suggested that to enhance teachers’ engagement in STEM teaching, further studies on teacher professional development are needed to explore how to enhance teachers’ pedagogical design competencies and collaboration consciousness. This study provides some implications and recommendations for school administrators and teacher educators to successfully enhance teachers’ engagement and competencies in STEM education.

  • Hong Kong Teachers’ Self-efficacy and Concerns About STEM Education
    • Abstract: STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education is vital for incubating future scientists, engineers, and inventors. Teaching and learning in STEM education require teachers and students to employ design thinking and multi-disciplinary knowledge to formulate new solutions for emerging problems. School teachers are facing multiple challenges in implementing STEM education. With the application of the Self-efficacy and stages of concern theories, this quantitative study (with 235 teacher respondents) aims to unearth Hong Kong teachers’ responses regarding STEM education. The results show that 5.53% of the respondents regard themselves as “well prepared” for STEM education. On the other hand, the respondents have intense “information”, “management”, and “consequence” concerns about implementing STEM education in schools. The findings reflect that there is an urgent need to provide teachers with articulated professional development, pedagogic support, and curricular resources for empowering them to implement STEM education in practice.

  • Development and Validation of the Assessment for Learning Experience
           Inventory (AFLEI) in Chinese Higher Education
    • Abstract: While assessment for learning (AfL) has gained increasing international prominence, and has been strongly promulgated by an increasing number of education systems, current instruments designed to measure students’ assessment for learning experience show a number of methodological shortcomings, such as lacking construct validity and low internal consistency of scales, or structural confirmations of the dimensionality of AfL constructs captured in the questionnaires have not been tested. This paper presents the development and validation of a psychometrically robust measure of assessment for learning experience in the Chinese higher education—the Assessment for Learning Experience Inventory (AFLEI). Two independent samples of 201 and 163 higher education students responded to the AFLEI. The data were then subjected to Exploratory Factor Analyses (EFAs) and Confirmatory Factor Analyses (CFAs), respectively. Results from both EFAs and CFAs provided support for a five–factor AfL experience inventory with a strong psychometric basis. The five clusters of AfL experience perceived by the Chinese university students are Teacher formal feedback and support, Interactive dialog and peer collaboration, Learning-oriented assessment, Active engagement with subject matter, and Students taking responsibility for their learning. The correlations between the five clusters of AfL experience and the ‘deep learning approach’ of the Revised Two-Factor Study Process Questionnaire (R-SPQ-2F) supported the concurrent validity of the AFLEI. The AFLEI can be used both as an evaluation tool to evaluate the extent to which university students experience AfL practices in university curriculum, and as a research tool to explore more deeply the relationships between AfL experience and student learning.
