  • A Language Teacher’s Reflection on Maladaptive Immunity, Possible
           Selves and Motivation

    • Authors: Eser Ordem
      First page: 1
      Abstract: The concept of language teacher immunity as productive and maladaptive system has emerged in very recent years, although motivation has been incrementally studied in second language field. It is important to establish a relationship between language teacher immunity, possible selves and motivation. This study aimed to focus on a teacher’s conception and views of adaptive skill, self and motivation while dealing with problems in a certain foreign language classroom environment. The case study was idiographic, longitudinal and phenomenographic. Semi-structured interview, diary and the students’ online feedback tools were used to collect data. The relationship between the teacher’s reflection on the class and the students’ feedback was observed for 14 weeks. The results showed that the teacher showed maladaptive behaviors with low motivation with constant reflection on her previous experiences and possible ideal self and high self-efficacy in a classroom setting.

  • Perceptions of Students from the Department of Computer Education and
           Instructional Technologies Regarding the Concept of Curriculum

    • Authors: Melis Yesilpinar Uyar
      First page: 9
      Abstract: In the study, the purpose was to determine the perceptions of students from the department of Computer Education and Instructional Technologies regarding the concept of curriculum. The participants of the study conducted with the phenomenology research design were 212 preservice teachers. The research data were collected via document analysis and interviews. For the analysis of the data, the inductive content analysis method was used. The results revealed that the preservice teachers perceived the concept of curriculum as a process with positive and negative features which emphasize change and development. The results also demonstrated that the participants perceived their levels of knowledge about curriculum as partly sufficient. In addition, it was found that undergraduate education has an important role in the development of these perceptions. Moreover, the results emphasized the need for making more planned and systematic regulations in relation to the functioning of curriculum studies in Turkey. Lastly, the results demonstrated that there is a need for regulations in the structure of the preservice teacher education curricula to give meaning to the concept of curriculum.

    • Authors: Ani Minarni, E. Elvis Napitupulu
      First page: 23
      Abstract: Solving problem either within mathematics or beyond is one of the ultimate goal students learn mathematics. It is since mathematics takes role tool as well as vehicle to develop problem solving ability. One of the supporting components to problem solving is mathematical representation ability (MRA). Nowadays, many teachers and researchers find out secondary school students are so poor in MRA. Considering the problem, this research developed instruction materials based on Joyful Problem-based learning (JPBL) to endorse eighth graders of public secondary school students grasp their MRA. The study took place in the Province of North Sumatera, Indonesia. A number of 88 students engaged as subjects. The study administered MRA test before and after implementing the instruction materials. Data is analyzed descriptively and by t-test. The result showed that the learning materials developed is effective in improving the students’ MRA. It increased significantly, though categorized mediocre. The study contributed to the existing instruction materials in pursuing MRA.

  • Acculturation Strategy, Integration Paradoxes and Educational
           Adaptation—A Case Study of Chinese Visiting Scholar’s Family in the
           United States

    • Authors: Weidong Li, Sisi Chen
      First page: 39
      Abstract: In this case study, we developed a theoretical framework for examining the relationship between acculturation strategy and educational adaptation. By interviews and observations of one Chinese visiting scholar’s family in the United States, we found that the family utilized integration as the acculturation strategy to adapt to the US educational environment. However, we also found that the family’s perceived integration attitudes and behaviors were opposed to its actual integration attitudes and behaviors, which we called integration paradoxes. These integration paradoxes included the following four areas: a) cultural difference; b) academic and non-academic problem solving; c) academic expectations; and d) bicultural competence. The findings indicated potential moderated and/or mediated effects of the four integration paradoxes on the relationship between integration and educational adaptation.

    • Authors: Omer CELIK, Sureyya Yonca SEZER, Mustafa KARADAG, Yuksel SAVUCU, Mikail TEL, Baha Engin CELIKEL
      First page: 54
      Abstract: In this study, the level of adequacy of sports facilities in Bingol province in terms of popularization of sports in the city and the general tendency of the citizens of Bingol province towards sports were examined. A total of 610 volunteers from various professions, age groups and gender groups from Bingol city center participated in this study. Questionnaires were applied to the subjects who participated. There are 31 questions in the questionnaire. The sample group of tradesmen and their customers in Bingol province were contacted by random sampling method. Survey questions were asked face to face for the purpose of getting the necessary data for the goal of the research. In the evaluation of the obtained data, the frequency and percentage distributions were calculated and tested by applying the Chi-square test to see if there are any relationships between the variables. In the light of this research, it is observed that a large majority of people living in Bingol are interested in sports, and football is the first among all sports branches of interest. The most important factor preventing sports being more widespread was found to be the lack of adequate sports facilities in the city, and it was also observed that public institutions and organizations lack their own sports facilities. For sports programs and facilities to be newly constructed, the public's interest and expectations should be taken into account. It has also been understood that in order to popularize mass sports events in Bingol, the number of sports facilities and sports clubs should be increased too.

    • Authors: Dahlia Novarianing Asri, Punaji Setyosari, Imanuel Hitipeuw, Tutut Chusniyah
      First page: 70
      Abstract: Among the main causes of low learning achievement in mathematics learning is a delayed behavior to do tasks, commonly called academic procrastination. The objectives of this research are to describe and to explain the causal factors and consequences of academic procrastination in learning mathematics for junior high school students. This research was conducted for more than five months. The research took place at six junior high schools in Madiun Regency. The research approach was a qualitative descriptive. The types of data sources were six mathematics teachers and six students, in-class mathematics learning activities, and documents. The data collection techniques were (1) questionnaire, (2) documentation, (3) passive role observation, and (3) in-depth interviews. The data were analyzed using an interactive model, which was implemented in two stages. They are at the time or during the course of data collection and after the data collection. The results of data analysis show that academic procrastination is caused by several factors. They are assumption that the tasks assigned are not important, too burdensome, and difficult to work, insufficient knowledge, too perfectionist, bad management of learning, lack of self-regulation, stress and fatigue, lack of social support, indiscipline teachers, and inconducive school culture. Academic procrastination, most importantly, leads to low learning achievement.

    • Authors: Yulia Solovieva, Luis Quintanar
      First page: 99
      Abstract: The syndrome of attention deficit disorder is one of the most frequent pictures of disabilities in pre-scholars. The present study analyses the results of fulfillment of tasks for mechanisms of control and spatial functions. 14 pre-scholars with attention deficit disorder took part in the study. The neuropsychological evaluation was applied before and after application the correction program. The most significant differences were obtained for the functions of voluntary regulation and spatial functions. The program of neuropsychological correction was elaborated and applied 64 sessions. The main goals of the program were to form the action of material external control by introducing activity of role games. The program included orientation in games, perception, spatial relations and solving problems at the level of concrete actions and concrete images and drawing. The results of final neuropsychological evaluation pointed out significant differences between initial and final evaluation for functions of regulation and spatial functions. The comparison of initial and final assessment shows the disappearance of difficulties in some tasks. The discussion establishes positive effects of neuropsychological correction without medication. The results permit to complete the comprehension of the syndrome and propose the original treatment according to the concept of central mechanisms considered in neuropsychology.

    • Authors: Ninwisan Hengsomboon, Shotiga Pasiphol, Siridej Sujiva
      First page: 118
      Abstract: The purposes of the research were (1) to develop the physical therapy practical assessment system by using the multisource feedback (MSF) approach and (2) to investigate the effectiveness of the implementation of the developed physical therapy practical assessment system. The development of physical therapy practical assessment system by using MSF was determined by nine experts in physical therapy. Suitability and feasibility of the system for each sub-group were investigated. Five input factors, two process factors, two output factors, and two feedback factors were involved in the system. Level of suitability and feasibility of elements in each sub-group presented at high to the highest level. In system testing, 40 physical therapy students were participated. Raters consisted of clinical educators, students (self-assessment), friends (students who in the same practical group), and patients. Twice assessments during the period of clinical practice were performed. Data analysis for generalizability coefficient (G-coefficient) was evaluated by the EduG program. Quality of the system was evaluated 4 aspects including the utility, feasibility, propriety, and accuracy. These were calculated by mean () and standard deviation (SD). The values of G-coefficient for absolute and relative were 0.86 and 0.88, respectively. In addition, quality of the system showed value at high to the highest level in all aspects.

  • Stakeholders’ Perceptions of Quality and Potential Improvements in the
           Learning Resources Centers at Omani Basic Education Schools

    • Authors: Ali Al Musawi, Talal Amer
      First page: 124
      Abstract: This study attempts to investigate the stakeholders’ perceptions of quality and prospective improvements in the learning resources centres (LRC) at Omani basic education schools. It focuses on different aspects of the LRCs: organisation, human resources, technological, and educational aspects along with the difficulties faced by these LRCs and ways to improve their quality and evaluation. Five questionnaires for all types of stakeholders were designed, validated and implemented. Findings show that the services have yet to be improved and reach better levels of quality standards since they are not ‘always’ implemented with quality. Evidence shows that the need for retaining LRC specialists was insurmountable. A training model for the Omani schools was recommended in light of the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) and International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) criteria and competencies.

  • Elementary and Junior High School Teachers’ Promotion of
           Self-Determination in Taiwan

    • Authors: Pen-Chiang Chao, Yu-Chi Chou
      First page: 141
      Abstract: instruction is implemented by elementary and junior high school teachers; (b)examine the frequency with which the components of self-determination are taught; and (c)investigate whether teachers’ gender, class setting, and teaching experience affect their classroom practices regarding the promotion of self-determination. The participants were 1,039 teachers recruited from elementary and junior high schools nationwide in Taiwan using a random sampling method. The Teaching Self-Determination Scale (TSDS) was used to gauge the extent to which educators teach knowledge and skills related to self-determination. Descriptive statistics, analyses of variance (ANOVAs) and multivariate analyses of variance (MANOVAs) were employed to analyze data collected. Findings showed that more than half of the teachers surveyed reported having often or always provided instruction to promote students’ self-determination. The most frequently taught skills are related to Psychological Empowerment (self-advocacy skills, expecting positive outcomes), while the least frequently taught skills were primarily located in the domain of Self-Regulation (goal setting and problem solving skills). Furthermore, our findings showed that teachers’ gender, class setting, and teaching experience were factors attecting the extent to which teachers delivered instruction to promote self-determination. Female teachers exhibited higher levels of implementation with respect to self-determination instruction. Teachers in general education classrooms showed significantly higher levels of applied self-determination instruction, followed by resource room teachers and self-contained classroom teachers. Additionally, teachers with more teaching experiences more frequently employed instructional activities promoting self-determination. Suggestions and implications are provided.

  • Are We Better without Technology'

    • Authors: Ahmet Kara
      First page: 152
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of visual element and technology supported teaching upon perceived instructor behaviors by pre-service teachers. In accordance with this purpose, whereas the lessons were lectured without benefiting from visual elements and technology in a traditional way with the students included in the control group, in the experimental group, the lessons were lectured using visual elements and technology (PowerPoint, video, etc.) with the pre-service teachers included. In this research that was carried out using an experimental method, “Perceived Instructor Behaviors Scale” developed by Kara, İzci, Köksalan and Zelyurt (2015) was used as pre-application and post-application. According to the findings, visual elements and technology-assisted teaching caused pre-service teachers to perceive their instructors as calmer, more adequate and authoritative. When the probable negative effects of an authoritative instructor upon the students were considered, should sufficient and calm perception of the instructor be supported or should calmness and sufficiency of the instructor be preferred by avoiding technology-assisted teaching which makes the teaching process mechanic'

  • The Importance of Understanding Culture When Improving Education: Learning
           from Cambodia

    • Authors: Jan B. Y. Berkvens
      First page: 161
      Abstract: Following Education for All, initiatives like child-friendly schools initiative is rolled out in many countries, including Cambodia. The child-friendly schools initiative is addressing general and local needs of children in schools, like a safe environment, well-trained teachers and the provision of teaching and materials. But there is also a component that is more cultural in nature and might not resonate well with the country’s culture. As Hofstede’s (1980, 1986) research concerning cultural differences indicated, a country’s culture can be described following five dimensions (individualism/collectivism, power distance, uncertainty avoidance, masculinity/femininity, and long-term/short-term orientation). Not taking a country’s culture into account while intervening with important services like education, might lead to low intervention outcomes, teachers who feel uncomfortable with the proposed contents and ways of teaching, and students who are not prepared well towards the society they live in. A cultural profile of Cambodia was missing when the ministry of education started to roll out the Education for All and Child Friendly School approaches in 2006/2007 (Schaeffer & Heng, 2016). The original research has since been enriched with additional data sets. The data sets are by no means large enough to be representative, but through triangulation a careful attempt is made to at least inform educationalists of the importance of taking culture into account when designing and implementing educational interventions to improve learning in Cambodia, and likely elsewhere. With the onset of the Sustainable Development Goals (UN Sustainable Development Knowledge Platform, 2015), such cultural understanding is a necessity in order to achieve cultural appropriate project outcomes.
