  • Redesign of a First-Year Theory Course Sequence in Biostatistics

    • Authors: Jesse D Troy, Kara McCormack, Steven C Grambow, Gina-Maria Pomann, Gregory P Samsa
      First page: 1
      Abstract: This communication describes the process and results of a curriculum review of a first-year sequence of courses in statistical inference within a Master of Biostatistics program. Our primary aim was to develop an innovative course in statistical theory that meets the needs of a diverse student audience, the majority of whom are seeking a terminal master’s degree while a minority will pursue PhD training in biostatistics. The main results were (1) different course paths for job-bound and PhD-bound students; and (2) the development of an innovative first course in statistical inference, which is a computationally-aided self-discovery of a salient (albeit not comprehensive) set of key concepts and techniques pertaining to statistical inference. The redesign process addressed a key conceptual barrier: namely, the unexamined assumption that deductive proofs are a necessary condition for rigorous presentation. Consistent with the principles of constructivism, we navigated this barrier by redefining the task to which pedagogic rigor should be applied: namely, to help students to develop a sound mental map of statistical inference. We believe that the approach we used to accomplish this redefined task could be generalized to additional aspects of statistical education, among others.

  • An Affective, Formative and Data-Driven Feedback Intervention in Teacher
           Education

    • Authors: Eric Mendelson, Jody S. Piro
      First page: 13
      Abstract: Educators and researchers have long contemplated the most effective ways to provide feedback to students, to build sustainable feedback practices, and to establish feedback literacy. While a considerable amount of research, theory, and practical approaches exist to support the effect of formative feedback practices, less research exists on the impact of affective elements related to feedback. This study set out to explore pre-service teachers’ perceptions of a feedback intervention that included affective, formative, and data-driven aspects. A mixed-reality simulation environment was selected as the context for the study, and eight pre-service teachers performing in the simulation were selected as participants. This qualitative multicase study included three rounds of simulation observations, a feedback intervention, and interviews. Data were analyzed using a thematic analysis framework. Findings showed that the application of confirmation, empathy, and reciprocity in the feedback intervention prompted the development of helping relationships that promoted personal growth. Humanism became a useful framework for these emergent findings. In addition, findings included participants’ preferences for formative feedback over data-feedback, particularly formative feedback that introduced engaging language, purposeful organization, and details and examples. Lastly, findings revealed participants’ perceived personal growth in feedback literacy, especially in managing emotions and committing to the feedback process.

  • Implementation of Problem-based Learning in Reading among Primary School
           English Teachers in Neijiang City, Sichuan Province, China

    • Authors: Zhenchen Li, Ahmad Johari Bin Sihes
      First page: 30
      Abstract: Problem-based Learning (PBL) is a student-centered teaching method with teachers as facilitators. In order to promote the mastery and implementation of PBL by primary school English teachers, this study is conducted to determine the knowledge and implementation level of the PBL, and compare the knowledge and implementation level of the PBL between English major and non-English major teachers. A total of 150 English teachers from public primary schools in urban areas of Neijiang City, Sichuan Province, China was involved in the study. The instrument used was an online questionnaire. The result from descriptive statistics and T-test showed that the knowledge and implementation level of PBL among primary school English teachers is high. Besides, there is no significant difference between English major and non-English major primary school English teachers in knowledge and implementation level of PBL. It was found that English major background has no effect on teachers’ knowledge and implementation level of PBL in primary school English reading class. Overall, this study explored the implementation of PBL among primary school English teachers in reading and promoted teachers’ attention to PBL, improved teachers’ ability to apply PBL, enhanced the English reading ability of primary school students, and promoted the reform and development of teaching methods.

  • Factors Affecting in Achievement of Universal Courses Objective by Using
           Distance Education during COVID-19 Pandemic

    • Authors: Haroon Tawarah, Omar Musa Mahasneh, Walaa Al-Shuaybat
      First page: 43
      Abstract: The Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) has caused countries to resort to using distance education, as the study tried to uncover the factors that affect in the achievement of universal courses objective by using distance education during (COVID-19) pandemic. The researchers used the relational descriptive Methodology through the questionnaire Instrument. The questionnaire consisted of (24) items distributed on (6) factors (Effectiveness of Students, Effectiveness of faculty members, Methods of Distance Teaching, Motivation of Students, Availability of facilities and Achieving of course objectives). The study sample consisted of (1320) students from university colleges in Jordan, which were chosen by the Available sample method. The appropriate statistical analysis represented by the path analysis was found through the IBM SPSS Statistics. The results of the study showed the validity of the study hypotheses and that the specific factors (Effectiveness of Students, Effectiveness of faculty members, Methods of Distance Teaching, Motivation of Students and Availability of facilities) affect the Achieving of course objectives. According to the results of the research, the researchers recommended concerned universities in taking the factors found in the study to improve the effectiveness of distance education. Where the research contributes to supporting e-learning by developing it as a method of distance education and identifying the most important factors that affect its achievement of the objectives of the courses, especially in countries where the use of e-learning is considered a preliminary experience due to the Corona pandemic, which has not happened previously, and the state did not resort Jordanian to rely on him previously.

           Restoration Science Curriculum: The Digital Platform and Student Symposium
           Presentations

    • Authors: Lauren B. Birney, Brian R. Evans, Joyce Kong, Vibhakumari Solanki, Elmer-Rico Mojica
      First page: 53
      Abstract: The Billion Oyster Project and Curriculum and Community Enterprise for the Restoration of New York Harbor (BOP-CCERS) program is a National Science Foundation (NSF) supported initiative and collaboration of multiple institutions and organizations led by Pace University and is in collaboration with New York City Public Schools. This large-scale project, Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST), generated a large amount of data through programming that engaged both teachers and students. This article presents the third part to the study with focus on the Digital Platform and results from the student Symposium presentations. Part 1 focused on Underrepresented Minority (URM) student interest in STEM as motivated by the original project. Part 2 focused on URM student engagement with teachers to support students in teaching science through experiential learning and lessons that connect science to the real world, particularly through science in the New York Harbor. Moreover, the second part of the study focused on teacher engagement in the program, and what the researchers had learned in the process. The third aspect of the study, and primary focus on this paper, had found additional positive results cited by the teachers in the study both using the Digital Platform and after the project outcomes from the student Symposium presentations.

  • Impact of Teaching a Proposed Unit on Successful Intelligence and
           Augmented Reality in Biology on Lateral Thinking and Science Fiction among
           High School Students in Al-Saih City, Saudi Arabia

    • Authors: Norah Saleh Mohamed Al-Muqbil
      First page: 63
      Abstract: The study examined the impact of teaching a unit based on the Theory of Successful Intelligence and Augmented Reality in Biology on developing lateral thinking and science fiction among high school students in Al-Saih City, Saudi Arabia. To verify the research experience's effect, a quasi-experimental design, the "Lateral Thinking Test," and the "Science Fiction Scale" were used. The research sample included 34 experimental and 37 control students (all high school students). The research tool used to examine both groups' lateral thinking contains 24 questions on concepts, alternatives, linkages, and ideas. Science fiction skills include alertness, flexibility, imagery, daydreaming, retreating from reality, and sustaining direction. The results demonstrated a statistically significant difference (0.05) between the average scores of the experimental and control groups for each lateral thinking skill and the lateral thinking test as a whole, in favor of the experimental group. Also, teaching a unit based on the Theory of Successful Intelligence and Applications of Augmented Reality in biology helps develop lateral thinking and science fiction. The research advocated applying the notion of Successful Intelligence and Augmented reality in high school, based on the study's results, to improve educational outcomes such as "lateral thinking" and "science fiction".

  • Challenging the Status Quo: Critical Thinking Skills Integration in the
           EFL Curriculum of Young Learners

    • Authors: Aneesa Mohammed Al-Rahbi, Abdo Mohammed Al-Mekhlafi, Thuwayba Al-Barwani, Ehab Omara
      First page: 79
      Abstract: This study aimed to explore the level of critical thinking skills integrated into the tasks of the Omani English language curriculum of young learners. The study implemented a content analysis checklist that was based on the six critical thinking skills which were agreed upon by a group of international critical thinking experts and declared in the Delphi Report that was published by the American Philosophical Association (APA). The two textbooks of grade four, second semester (4B) beside the Teacher’s Book, were utilized as the sample of this analysis. Results of the study showed a low level of critical thinking skills integrated into the tasks of these textbooks as these tasks made up only (35.55%) of all the tasks in the textbooks. In addition, the self-examination subskill was highly represented compared with the other critical thinking subskills (20. 81%). Moreover, results showed that four of the critical thinking subskills (detecting arguments, analyzing arguments, presenting arguments, and self-correction) were absent from the tasks of both textbooks. Based on these findings several implications were addressed.

      Abstract: In Malaysia, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) play important roles in establishing community-based early intervention programmes for children with autism spectrum disorder. However, there are limited understanding of how the intervention programmes may be used in community-based settings. This paper aims to explore the practices and challenges faced by the community-based intervention centres in Malaysia. A principal, 6 teachers, and a therapist from IDEAS Autism Centre were selected as participants in this study through purposive sampling. Five main themes were identified through thematic analysis: [1] Admission Requirement, [2] Teacher’s Role, [3] Current Intervention Program, [4] Objectives and [5] Challenges. The results reveal that their curricula were self-designed through adaptation. This study provides a base to improve the community-based early intervention programmes.

  • Measuring Chinese Undergraduate English Majors’ Motivation to Learn
           Translation in Higher Education Translation Courses

    • Authors: Weijia Chen, Subadrah Madhawa Nair, Walton Wider
      First page: 109
      Abstract: Many studies have suggested that Chinese English majors tend to have a lower level of motivation to learn translation due to the conventional teaching method still prevalent in many a translation classroom. In this regard, from the standpoint of instruction, a translation course design that employed motivation as a central concept of the design may have positive impacts on students’ motivation to learn. Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) is known for its efficacy in making meaning-oriented choice in language use in context. And since translation is about recontextualized meaning transfer, a teaching method integrated with SFL may be motivating for students to learn translation. Grounded on SFL and guided by Keller’s ARCS Motivational Design, a new genre-based method was proposed. This study aimed to explore effects of an SFL guided genre-based method and the conventional method on Chinese students’ motivation to learn translation. Two intact groups were selected as the Experimental Group and the Control Group, each consisting of 37 students. The Experimental Group was instructed using the genre-based method while the Control Group using the conventional method. A motivation questionnaire adapted from Keller’s Course Interest Survey was administered to both groups’ students before and after the pedagogical intervention. Data collected from the survey were analyzed using ANCOVA test in SPSS (Version 25). The results show that students in the Experimental Group scored significantly higher mean in overall motivation and four constructs of the ARCS Model, namely, Attention, Relevance, Confidence, and Satisfaction after they were taught using the genre-based method in comparison with their counterparts in the Control Group. The findings indicate that in general, the genre-based method is effective in enhancing students’ motivation in learning translation. Therefore, future translation instructors may consider adopting the SFL-informed genre-based method as an alternative pedagogical tool to motivate students to learn translation.

  • The Depiction of Servant Teacher Leadership Attributes in Mass Media: A
           Characterization Analysis of the Protagonist in Rita TV Series

    • Authors: Olusiji Lasekan, Claudia Alarcon
      First page: 122
      Abstract: Taking into account the critical role of teacher leadership in school development and the importance of fostering its training through image media, this study aims to identify the ten proposed attributes of Greenleaf servant leadership exemplified by the protagonist of a popular comedy-drama television show called Rita. Adopting the notion of characterization, a qualitative study approach was used to identify the proposed Greenleaf's ten traits of servant leader (SL) demonstrated by the main character by evaluating her interactions with students and their parents, co-teachers, the principal, and school policymakers. The findings revealed that the character is an effective servant teacher leader, as her personality portrayed all the ten qualities proposed in Greenleaf SL. This implies that preservice and in-service educators can utilize the show as a reflective tool for enhancing Servant Teacher Leadership (STL) competencies in the classroom. This study contributes to the growing body of knowledge about teacher representation on television shows and the implications for teacher leadership education.

      Abstract: Faculty attitude is an important aspect in determining their readiness for online education. This study seeks to understand the attitude of teachers in higher education regarding online teaching and learning. There were 759 participants from different colleges and universities in India (92 professors, 73 associate professors, and 594 assistant professors). This study was completed during the lockdown owing to Covid-19 outbreak. After reviewing relevant literature, data was initially gathered using Google forms based on the "Attitude Scale towards Online Teaching and Learning for Higher Education Teachers". Scale reliability was verified with the Cronbach Alpha and split-half reliability. Interrelationships between the constructs of attitude were examined using PLS-SEM. The study also revealed the existence of parallel and serial mediations between the constructs. It was established that knowledge could lead to responsiveness only in the presence of appreciation and proficiency. Hence, appreciation and proficiency are important constructs for teachers' responsiveness towards online education.

      Abstract: The socio-economic and demographic factors can influence on the planning and implementation of intervention service for children with intellectual disability. The present study aims to assess the socio-economic and demographic factors associated with adaptive functions of children diagnosed with Intellectual Disability in Ethiopia. 160 children with intellectual disability were included in this cross-sectional study. Vinland Adaptive Behavioural Scale II was administered to assess adaptive behaviour of children diagnosed with intellectual disability. The current study's participants performed poorly in all adaptive behaviour domains and sub-domains. In comparison to younger children, older youngsters scored lower on adaptive behaviour. This indicated that domains of adaptive behavioural functions were linked with age negatively: age and communication (-0.28), age and daily living (-0.22), age and socialization (-0.23); and adaptive composite score and age (-0.3). There was no significant correlation between all domains and subdomain of adaptive behaviour and educational status and gender. In contrast, there was a significant relationship between parents' or caregivers' marital status and all domains and subdomains of adaptive behavioural functions in children with intellectual disability. Those children who were living with married couples perform better than those who were living with single mother, divorced and widowed.Generally, in underdeveloped nations like Ethiopia, description of socio-economic and demographic correlates of intellectual disabilities in children diagnosed with intellectual disability is crucial for designing a meaningful and useful policy and strategy for early identification and intervention of children with intellectual disability.

  • University Students’ Awareness of the ‘Business Incubators’ Concept
           and Their Role in Advancing Socio-Economic Development

    • Authors: Khawlah M. AL-Tkhayneh, Huda A. Alhajjaj, Amoura H. Aboutaleb
      First page: 173
      Abstract: This study aims to identify the university students in the United Arab Emirates who are aware of the concept of ‘business incubators’, and their role in enhancing socio-economic development. Moreover, the research sample is 150 students from Al Ain University during the first semester of 2020/2021. Additionally, study goals are achieved by using a descriptive analysis that employs personality interview. Hence, the research’s results reveal that there is a medium level of awareness about the concept of business incubators as economic development projects. Most students believe that business incubators are one of the best social policies, which are adopted by first world countries. In fact, most of the students’ responses in the Human and Social colleges focus in reducing the phenomenon of unemployment, which helps to mitigate poverty, crime. In addition, it helps to minimize unemployment, which is associated with depression that may lead young people to undergo deviation. Eventually, young people who are considered essential elements in society, are able to adopt the concept of business incubators, and their ideas can contribute in the development of qualitative and innovative projects that promote the state and protect it from global crises as well as security and social stability. This study provides recommendations and suggestions for further research.

  • Effects of University Students' Educational Satisfaction on
           Convergence and Creative Competencies

    • Authors: Youngju Hur
      First page: 181
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to understand the effect of individual and educational factors on convergence and creative competencies of university students. In order to achieve the research purpose, educational satisfaction and creativity and convergence capabilities were measured among 1,379 students in 2021, and multiple regression analysis was conducted using the optimization scale method. The findings showed that if educational satisfaction which is an educational factor that can be managed by a university is high, then the influence of individual factors on the convergence and creative competencies can be reduced. In addition, it was found that satisfaction with extra-curriculum did not affect convergence and creative competencies, but satisfaction with liberal arts and major curricula had an effect on convergence and creative competencies. In particular, it was found that satisfaction with the major curriculum had greater influence on convergence competency, and satisfaction with the liberal arts curriculum had greater influence on creative competency. Based on the research results, it is recommended that universities open various liberal arts and major subjects, and maintain a high level of quality according to the students’ level. Moreover, liberal arts subjects must be directed towards improving creativity, and major subjects must be focused on improving job performance for employment.

  • Self Regulated Development Learning Model Based on Local Culture to
           Improve Elementary School Students’ Explanatory Writing Skills

    • Authors: Annisa Kharisma, Tatat Hartati, Vismaia S. Damaianti, Muhammad Solehuddin, Chandra Chandra
      First page: 196
      Abstract: This study aims to develop a learning model to improve elementary school students' explanatory writing skills. This development research used the Plomp model (preliminary research, prototyping phase, and assessment). Data collection techniques were carried out by interview, observation, and documentation study. The data collection tool employed was a written test sheet for students’ explanatory writing skills. After conducting a needs analysis, it was found that the explanatory writing material is new in elementary school. Thus, the students' explanatory writing skills in this study were very low. The teacher then needed a model focusing on the students' development in explanatory writing skills. This research, therefore, produced a learning model of self-regulated strategy development based on local culture to improve the explanatory writing skills of elementary school students. This model can motivate and increase students’ confidence in writing by choosing several strategies provided and measuring, analyzing, and activating early abilities, thereby increasing students’ content knowledge. The results also revealed an increase in students’ explanatory writing skills. Moreover, this special model pays attention to how to write explanatory in elementary school. Further, this model cannot only be used in elementary schools but can also be used at higher school levels. Therefore, future researchers are advised to conduct research by testing the effectiveness of learning models with similar themes at higher school levels.

  • A Study on the School Culture and Teaching Methods that Elementary School
           Teachers Consider Important

    • Authors: Sahoon Kim
      First page: 211
      Abstract: There are many predictions of how education will change in the future. In particular, the impact of technological and social change will make schools look different than they are today. Schools are expected to perform various functions in the future, and their forms and functions will differ from those of today. This study is mainly composed of two research contents. The first is about the school culture that teachers consider important in the future school, and the second is about the teaching-learning method suitable for the future. In this study, a survey was conducted on 81 elementary school teachers from February to April 2022. Data collection was conducted online. A total of 73 data were analyzed, excluding data judged to be insincere among respondents. The results are as follow. First, the most important thing for teachers to recognize is to operate a competency-oriented curriculum and set educational goals suitable for the future society. In addition, the most important teaching and learning methods of future schools recognized by teachers were student-student interaction, discussion-centered classes, and student-centered classes. Meanwhile, according to teachers, education using smart devices showed relatively low importance compared to other questions. Since this result is limited to elementary school students, it is necessary to interpret it carefully.

      Abstract: Curriculum reengineering, web-based technology acquisition, and job creation among Nigerian tertiary institution graduates were all examined in this research. The researchers used a descriptive survey design following the quantitative research approach. The study included all Nigerian graduates eligible for national service or its exemption who earned their diplomas or degrees between 2016 and 2021. The data was gathered via an online survey titled "Curriculum Re-engineering, Acquisition of Emerging Technologies, and Job Creation Questionnaire (CRAETJCQ). To assemble the data for this study, we used a snowball method. There were 4,874 replies countrywide after four months of data collection; however, only 4,628 responses satisfied the data analysis conditions after screening out irrelevant responses. Results indicated low curriculum reengineering in Nigerian postsecondary institutions. Nigerian graduates had a poor adoption of new web-based technologies but are increasingly using them for word processing, graphics, data science and data analysis. Nevertheless, only a few graduates employed emerging techs for other purposes (such as printing, YouTube video creation, course design and development, software development, digital marketing, online advertising, and consumer outreach). Although 58.30 per cent of graduates reported having not created any job, 41.70 per cent have done so between 2016 and 2021. Of the 1,930 graduates who owned at least one small or medium enterprise, 58.96% had no employees, whereas 41.04% had hired at least one employee between 2016 and 2021. The graduates' job creation index was estimated to be approximately 50% using a new formula. Based on these results, conclusions and recommendations were made.

  • English Language Speaking Anxiety among Afghan University Students

    • Authors: Mohammad Basir Bakhtyari, Hafizoah Kassim
      First page: 238
      Abstract: Background/purpose: English language plays an important role in Afghanistan higher education. Proficiency in English as the language of communication is becoming progressively important for the development of higher education. However, speaking in English is one of the anxiety provoking skills for most of Afghan learners. This study therefore aims to investigate Afghanistan undergraduate English and literature students’ perceptions on foreign language speaking anxiety, and its components of communication apprehension (CA), fear of negative evaluation (FNE) and test anxiety (TA). Method: An adapted version of Foreign Language Classroom Anxiety Scale (FLCAS) and an interview protocol were used to investigate 302 Afghan students’ foreign language anxiety. Results/conclusion: The findings suggested that the students experienced a moderate level of anxiety. The female students had higher level of foreign language anxiety (FLA) than male students. The study further revealed that CA was the highest factor which contribute to students’ FLCAS. The study found no statistically significant differences between the university location and components of FLA. This means that the students either from Kabul as the capital or from Bamyan as a central province experienced FLA. Furthermore, the components of FLA significantly correlated to each other. The findings suggest facilitating short and long-term training for both teachers and students to employ effective strategies on reducing the level of anxiety in English language classes.

      Abstract: This study used a cognitive flexibility training VR program that can view and solve problems from various perspectives, self-regulation, and self-regulation with the super cognitive ability required for creativity to improve college students' creative personality and attitude, creative problem solving, and convergence thinking ability. In addition, differences in creative personality and attitude, creative problem solving, and convergence thinking ability were analyzed before and after participation in the program. In this study, 55 students were recruited voluntarily among four-year E University students in Gyeonggi-do. The experimental tool is VR content developed by FNI Co., Ltd. The main contents are mainly composed of improving self-control ability, strengthening positivity, and enhancing interpersonal relationships. The IBM SPSS Statistics 25 program was used to analyze the collected data to test the research question. First, frequency analysis and descriptive statistical analysis were performed to examine the mean and standard deviation of the sociodemographic factors and measurement variables of the subjects. Moreover, to determine how consistently the measuring instrument was used, the reliability was validated by calculating the Cronbach's coefficient value. Furthermore, factor analysis was utilized to minimize the number of items in the developed measurement tool by removing variables unrelated to the component to be studied. Factor analysis has the purpose of reducing variables, removing unnecessary variables, identifying variable characteristics, evaluating the validity of measurement items, and creating variables using factor scores. In addition, to confirm the statistical significance of the average values of creative personality and attitude, creative problem solving, and convergence thinking before and after participating in the VR program, a matched-sample t-test was performed. As a result of the study, it was found that participation in the self-regulation and cognitive flexibility VR program had a positive effect after participation compared to before participation in creative personality and attitude, creative problem solving, and convergence thinking.

      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the promise of distance education using digital technologies. For Ukraine, this method of education has gained additional importance, since after the beginning of the unprecedented for the 21st century. Russian military aggression, the appeal to distance education technologies has become relevant. The purpose of the article is to analyze digital distance learning platforms, determine their effectiveness and prospects for further use. The work uses general scientific research methods (analysis, synthesis, induction, deduction). At the same time, the research is based on the principles of generalization, specification and abstraction. With the help of the comparison method, it was possible to compare the use of digital distance learning platforms in Ukraine, the USA and Saudi Arabia, where specific empirical data are presented. The research also used the axiomatic method, which provides for the ascent from theoretical statements (axioms) to specific conclusions. The conclusions concluded that distance learning is cheaper and more productive because it leaves more time for students to improve themselves and implement their own projects, and for teachers to conduct scientific work. The example of Saudi Arabia shows that a large number of students can be reached through the use of digital technologies and distance learning. This experience is useful for Ukraine. It is recommended to develop digital technologies of distance education in Ukraine, because its use will make it possible to save budget funds, guaranteeing the maximum involvement of teachers and students in the educational space.

      First page: 281
      Abstract: This study aimed to analyze the causal model of career education program participation, satisfaction, and career goal setting mediated by work values in higher education. Also, this study analyzed the differences between departments. In this study, data from the 2018 Graduate Occupational Mobility Survey (GOMS), the most recent data, was used. The Graduates Occupational Mobility Survey is the largest short-term panel survey of a representative sample of Korean Graduates. The GOMS is conducted annually and has its results compiled each year. Structural equation modeling and multiple SEM were used for this study. The results were as follows. First, career education program participation had a statistically significant positive effect on extrinsic and intrinsic work values and career goal setting. Second, career education program satisfaction had a statistically significant positive effect on intrinsic work values and career goal setting, except for extrinsic work value. In addition, only the intrinsic work values positively affected career goal setting. Third, the career education program satisfaction impacted intrinsic work values, and the intrinsic work value impact on career goal setting was the difference between department and majors. In conclusion, this study proposed the provision of career education programs considering the difference between departments and majors in higher education.

  • Design Artificial Intelligence Convergence Teaching and Learning Model CP3
           and Evaluations

    • Authors: Kil Hong Joo, Nam Hun Park
      First page: 291
      Abstract: In this paper, CP3 model (Converged model of Problem recognition, Plan and Play) is developed to perform the artificial intelligence convergence education as a teaching and learning model for elementary school students. The convergence education was applied to actual classes with five subjects: data collection and analysis, understanding sorting algorithms, understanding sequential structures, understanding repetitive structures, and procedural thinking. When the class was conducted using the CP3 model, the overall score is improved by 41.6% compared to the general classes. There were improvements of 53% of male students and 33% of female students, and male students in the lower grades participates more actively in Artificial Intelligence convergence classes. When the satisfaction of the class with CP3 model is analyzed, the interest level is improved by 83%, the problem-solving ability is improved by 70%, the satisfaction level is improved by 68.5%, the understanding level is improved by 64%, and the expectation level is improved by 68%. The overall satisfaction to the class is very high when the subjects and objects closely familiar in daily life are used due to the characteristics of the lower grade students, and the result is more effective when playable elements are applied. However, for low-grade students, they are still experiencing a little difficulties in classes with complex classes like CP3. Considering the characteristics of low-grade students, simple algorithms with a topic closely related to daily life would make a better result.

      Abstract: Analysis of design thinking as an innovative method of forming creative skills in students is the goal of the investigation. To write the article, general scientific methods were applied. From the theoretical pedagogical methods, we highlight the approaches of concretization, generalization and abstraction. In particular, the terminological discussions regarding the concept of design thinking are defined in the results. Also in the results it is shown the connections between the development of creativity and employment; the features of the stages of its use in the education process, the role of design thinking in the formation of creativity are elaborated. In our opinion, design thinking is a principle of joint research that influences the formation of innovative team solutions and the solution of complex problems. It is concluded, that the following criteria of design thinking are the main ones: focus on cooperation, participation, anthropology and conducting experiments. Usually in pedagogy, a certain division into stages is used in the use of design thinking: empathy, focus, generation of ideas, prototyping, testing. Modern top managers recognize that the fascination with the creative component harms production processes.

  • Validity of BRADeR Learning Model Development: An Innovative Learning
           Model to Improve Science Literacy Skills for Junior High School Students

    • Authors: Aprido B. Simamora, I Gusti Made Sanjaya, Wahono Widodo
      First page: 311
      Abstract: The results of the preliminary study show that the scientific literacy ability in 4 SMP Negeri Pematangsiantar is still relatively low. Since science study habits are still traditional and minimize the significance of being able to read science as a competency that students must acquire, there is a tendency for the learning process to not aid students in developing their scientific literacy skills. Due to this, the BRADeR learning model was developed using innovation, taking into account the benefits and drawbacks of the inquiry and SETS models as well as supporting theoretical and empirical research. This study serves to determine the validity of the BRADeR learning model that has been developed. The method of collecting validity data uses the focus group discussion (FGD) method. The validity of the BRADeR learning model was assessed based on content validity and construct validity. The BRADeR learning model was established and is in the very valid category, according to the validity results from experts in the field of science education (IPA). The BRADeR learning paradigm can be used to enhance high school students' science literacy abilities.

  • Teacher Self-efficacy in Music Teaching: Systematic Literature Review
           2011-2021

    • Authors: Karla Valdebenito, Alejandro Almonaci-Fierro
      First page: 317
      Abstract: International literature has reported that teachers present deficiencies and insecurities in teaching music; consequently, music is not taught competently and appropriately. Self-efficacy is the belief in one's ability to cope with different situations and tasks to produce achievements according to the individual's conviction. This systematic literature review aims to examine the self-efficacy of teachers who teach music within classrooms in studies conducted between the years 2011 and 2021. Articles were reviewed from the Web of Science, Scopus, and EBSCO databases, using the thematic analysis methodology and inclusion criteria, and fifteen articles were finally selected. The results indicate a clear difference in self-efficacy between specialist and non-specialist (generalist) teachers. In both cases, teachers look for different ways to teach music despite the adversities they face in their educational institutions, the low priority of the discipline within the school curriculum, and the scarce musical education they had in their teacher training. As a consequence, their level of self-efficacy is affected according to their professional and life experiences.

The method used is a historical literacy test for first and second-year students. Meanwhile, the questions were prepared based on the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) guidelines and the newest Indonesian History textbook for Grade XI. The analysis was carried out through a t-test, and the result showed that the literacy competence of History Education students at both universities is very poor. The mean scores of first and second-year SSU students were 49.91 and 54.14, while YSU students were 55.03 and 54.72, respectively. It means that history education study programs have to face the problem intensively, because the very low literacy will affects in many academic activities.

      Abstract: The objective of this study is to develop a sense of global community among young people and to lay the foundation for growth with desirable qualities and capabilities as members of a global civil society. The interpersonal competency was selected to conduct the study. The subjects of this study were high school students in K city located in Gyeonggi-do and analyzed how the gender, academic performance, parents' educational background, conversation time with parents, and participation in international cooperation activities affect global citizenship. Study subjects were a total of 248 high school students. Survey was selected as the study method. Collected questionnaires were subjected to descriptive statistical analysis and correlation analysis using IBM SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Science) 21 program, Student’s t-test, and one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). As a result of the analysis, first, it was found that female students had more influence than male students according to gender in global competency, and conversation time with parents was also found to have a significant effect. Second, in terms of self-competence, it was found that students who had experience in international cooperation had more influence than students who did not have experience in international cooperation. Lastly, in interpersonal competency, according to gender, female students were found to have more influence than male students, and conversation time with parents was also found to have a significant effect. Based on the results of this study, it is hoped that in the future, young people will participate in activities that cooperate with the world beyond regional and national identities, thereby providing a framework for recognizing and implementing their attitudes toward responsibility at the global level.

  • A Systematic Review of CEFR-Related Research of English Education in South
           Korea

    • Authors: Ji-hye Jeon
      First page: 363
      Abstract: This study aims to analyze the trend of CEFR(Common European Framework of Reference) related research in South Korea using the method of a systematic review and to discuss the research fields required in relation to CEFR. The Council of Europe released the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) in 2001. It acts as a standard for curriculum, teaching, learning, and evaluation. With this, thirty kinds of literature from the years 2000 to 2020 that satisfied the selection criteria were chosen from a search of CEFR-related research on English education. After the 2015 revised national curriculum was implemented, studies related to CEFR increased by 70% from 2018 in terms of publication year, and 60% of those studies used quantitative methodologies. After organizing the subjects of the studies by the Korean academic levels and CEFR levels, the data showed a focus on research for elementary and university while a wide range of CEFR levels from Basic User to Proficient User was represented. Since CEFR builds vocabulary, grammar, and language competence based on corpus data, 80% of the studies were performed in relation to the curriculum and evaluation using the corpus. However, in order to successfully apply CEFR to Korean English education, research on more detailed level settings and the linkage between each level needs to be actively conducted. More studies are necessary to adapt CEFR to the EFL context in Korea since CEFR describes communication skills that L2 learners should have, including pluricultural competence. This means a wide range of studies on CEFR are needed to expand the quality and quantity of English education in Korea.

      Abstract: According to the Next Generation Science Standards, the study sought to determine the reality of professional development programs for middle school science instructors in Al-Kharj Governorate, Saudi Arabia (NGSS). One of the study's most significant findings is that professional development programs for science teachers in the intermediate stage include central ideas according to the next-generation standards NGSS to a high degree, and teachers gain common and interrelated concepts. There are (135) science teachers in middle school schools in Al-Kharj Governorate. One of the most significant recommendations of the study was that professional development programs should be based on teachers' understanding of the foundations and principles of the central ideas. The need to enable the analysis of the critical concepts of geometry and technology is a must and must include activities to implement the principle of causation. Science teachers acquire scientific and geometric practices to a high degree under generation standards. Help them improve their abilities to choose contemporary models for science topics and teach them how to create geometric solutions to real-world science problems.

  • A Study on the Experiences of College Student Mentors Participating in
           Community Networks Youth Career Experience Programs- Focusing on the Case
           of “Ggumridan-gil”

    • Authors: Sook-hee Han, Chang-ho Cho, Yea-sol Choi
      First page: 401
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the characteristics of youth career experience programs in connection with the local community and to examine their meaning based on the experiences of university student mentors who participated in the "Ggumridan-gil " program. For this purpose, in-depth interviews were conducted with 8 university student mentors who participated in the "Ggumridan-gil " program. 15 topics and 6 categories were derived based on the collected interview contents. First, the "Ggumridan-gil" program, in which teenagers took part, first and foremost signifies "restoring the essence of career experience," which has been validated as a "professional education" and shown to be a program that permits easy "rapport formation" between youth and adults. On the other hand, it was found that university student mentors were in charge of the role of "supporters and guides" and experienced "growth and change" with youth mentees who participated in the program. And it was found that the youth who participated in the program had a special experience of 'community support'. Based on these research results, this study suggested that the " Ggumridan-gil" program can be a new model for youth career experience education based on connection and cooperation with the local community.

  • Contribution of the Analysis of the Mathematical Concordance to Understand
           the Teachers’ KTMT

    • Authors: Helena Rocha
      First page: 412
      Abstract: Technology is recognized by its potential to promote mathematical learning. However, achieving this potential requires the teachers to have the knowledge to integrate it properly into their practices. Several authors have intended to characterize the teachers’ knowledge and developed several models, but this approach has often been criticized by its static approach, not attending neither valuing the teachers’ practice. In this study we adopt the KTMT – Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics with Technology model, assuming the teachers’ practice as the main scenario of analysis. We focus on the options guiding the teachers’ decisions when confronted with a situation of lack of mathematical concordance while teaching functions. The situations of lack of mathematical concordance (i.e., situations where the mathematics addressed by the students is different from the one intended by the teacher) are assumed as rich and encapsulating the potential to reveal significant aspects of the teachers’ KTMT. The main goal of the study is to understand what domains of the teachers’ KTMT are highlighted in these circumstances. A qualitative methodology is adopted and one episode of one 10th grade teacher’s practice is analyzed, based on the KTMT model. The conclusions reached show the relevance of different knowledge domains, but emphasize the Mathematics and Technology Knowledge (MTK). They also raise questions about the impact of the specific technology being used on the teachers’ KTMT.

           Clinical Setting

    • Authors: Madison Zamora Hockaday, Rubee Sandhu, Susha Rajadurai, Muath Aldosari, Sang E. Park
      First page: 423
      Abstract: Introduction: Dental education reform has been a focus for many schools over recent years, particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of the presented study was to assess faculty and student preferences for feedback styles, learning modalities in the clinical setting, and transitioning from the preclinical to clinical environments.Methods: Two separate surveys were distributed to clinical faculty and students from classes of 2021, 2022, and 2023.Results: Notably, faculty had significantly more favorable views on interpersonal dynamics within the student clinic compared to students (p = 0.0255). While students and faculty differed in their views on the transition from preclinical to clinical practice, clinical performance, and teaching/learning modality preferences, these results were not statistically significant.Conclusion: Nevertheless, discrepancies in student and faculty responses to questions centering on feedback preferences, teaching/learning modality preferences, and transitioning to the clinical environment indicate potential avenues to explore for future development efforts.

  • Influence of Perceived Teacher Identity on Job Satisfaction among
           Elementary School Teachers: Focusing on the Mediating Effect of Teacher
           Commitment

    • Authors: Suk Yeol Lee, Ho Seub Lee
      First page: 432
      Abstract: This study is to analyze the relationship between elementary school teacher identity perception, job satisfaction, and teacher commitment. To this end, the influence of elementary school teacher identity perception on job satisfaction and the mediating effect model of teacher commitment were established, and the variables of teacher identity perception, job satisfaction, and teacher commitment were measured for 203 elementary school teachers in 5 regions of Korea. The analysis verified the influence and mediating effect among variables by applying structure equation modeling. The analysis results are as follows. First, the elementary school teacher identity perception has a positive impact on job satisfaction and teacher commitment. Second, teacher commitment has a positive impact on job satisfaction. Third, teacher commitment has a partial mediating effect between the elementary school teacher identity perception and job satisfaction. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the variable of teacher identity perception in the decision-making situation for policies and systems to increase the job satisfaction and teacher commitment of elementary school teachers. In a situation where educational innovation and reform are being promoted worldwide along with the 4th industrial revolution, teacher identity perception will act as an important factor in the success of these changes and innovation.

      Abstract: The curriculum must be structured at the level and perspective of the students because the it is for students' learning. In this regard, the purpose of this study is to propose a design direction for the elementary school music curriculum by analyzing the perceptions of elementary school students in grades 5-6 toward school music classes. For this purpose, observation, interview, and checklist methods were conducted for 16 elementary school students to analyze students' perceptions of the goals, contents, methods, and evaluations of school music classes. The learning attitude of the students participating in the school music class was observed for one month, and an interview was conducted in groups to collect the students' free thoughts about the music class. Then, a checklist method was implemented to check the contents and methods of things that should be emphasized or preferred in the music class. The recognition results of students are as follows. First, they wanted music classes that were closely related to their lives. Second, listening to music was preferred along with performing music. Third, they wanted to experience a variety of music genres. Fourth, they wanted a fun music class. Fifth, they wanted the class to be more active when using digital devices. In conclusion, it is necessary to organize all music areas to be connected to life, to experience various genres of music content, and to use more active and interesting methods such as digital. In addition, it was confirmed that the curriculum should be composed of music learning linked to life and various fields.

      Abstract: The aim of this study was to investigate the predictive relationship of peer group influence, teacher-student interaction and indiscipline to students' dropout tendency in evening continuing education programmes. The context of this study is the southern senatorial district of Cross River State, Nigeria. The study adopted a predictive correlational research design, and the sample comprised 554 students randomly selected from 11 centres in the district. This represents 20% of the total population of students. The instrument used for data collection was a questionnaire titled: "Social Indicators and Dropout Tendency Scale" (SIDTS). The researchers collected the data that were analysed using Pearson product-moment correlation and multiple linear regression analyses at the .05 level of significance. The results revealed that peer group influence, teacher-student interaction and level of indiscipline collectively and individually predicted dropout tendency among students in evening continuing education programmes. It was recommended, among others, that the teachers discover diverse ways of making their teaching process lively by devising ways of engaging the students in the learning process by forming discussion groups that will promote healthy peer groups, which will increase their eagerness to come to school.

  • Preparation of Cadets of Higher Military Educational Institutions in
           Ukraine for Teaching (Perception) of Professional Vocabulary (Terminology)
           in English Classes

    • Authors: Oksana Ivanovna Yarmolovich
      First page: 467
      Abstract: The article reveals the problem of the functioning of verbal memory based on hermeneutical methods, that is, the problem of perception of English professional vocabulary (terminology) by cadets of higher military educational institutions in Ukraine. The training of cadets to learn professional vocabulary is based on a powerful methodological basis - a hybrid method with the application of memorization techniques. The aim is to demonstrate the main directions of teachers' work and professional disclosure of cadets in combination with motivation and hybrid learning of English professional language. External problems faced by cadets in memorizing military vocabulary are described. The paper considers didactic approaches that can facilitate or accelerate the process of learning English (communicative and action-oriented perspectives, distance work, and combined learning, consolidation, and repetition of vocabulary) in the perspective of memory theory. The results of the study showed that the method of blending text into two parts; and the search for associations between mental image and textual information improves the process of memorization, the reorganization of the material, which is necessary for mastering military terminology when using mnemonic and metacognitive strategies in English classes, contribute to the effective assimilation of the material. The conclusion is that the blending method is more effective than intensive teaching, does not cause rapid brain exhaustion and loss of motivation. The main aspects of solving the problem of perception of military terms are communication, cadet autonomy, memorization of everyday or professional vocabulary by finding the best strategies, and active approaches such as metacognitive strategy with an explicit-demonstrative approach. Using Atkinson's memory model: repetition-control-retrieval-analysis-search for associative relationships allows for control and improvement of teaching. Thus, the obvious connection between qualitative memorization and associative connections indicates that learning and teaching English to future servicemembers depends on the quantity and quality of the content outlined, as their psychosocial manifestations of professional mindset are specific.

      Abstract: Objectives This is a research and analysis on the perception of teachers in charge of the introduction and operation of the innovative education district in Gyeonggi-do Province P. The purpose is to redesign the innovative education district project in the P area based on the analysis. Methods A survey was conducted on 108 teachers in charge of the innovative education district in Gyeonggi-do P, and a research method was used on the operation of the innovation education district. Results First, the innovative education district, which started in 6 regions of Gyeonggi-do in 2011, has been extended to 16 provincial offices of education. Also, the innovative education district is set as the future education direction. Second, for teachers, the general matters of the innovative education district, teacher satisfaction, and the satisfaction level was 4.13, 4.22, and 4.02, which was a high average. On the other hand, it appears necessary to redesign the project by gathering feedback from multiple areas, such as teachers, parents, and village activists, since the village school utilizing local resources responded with a "3.80" and the awareness of world culture for multicultural understanding with a "3.85". Third, as a result of the average analysis of the innovative education district survey of teachers in area P, significant results according to their teaching career were clearly revealed. In particular, those with less than 10-15 years of teaching experience generally gave positive and high scores to the questionnaire responses. This seems to be the case since the majority of teachers with between 10 and 15 years of experience are head teachers or young teachers in their 40s, who are engaged in the education industry and possess a deep knowledge of the sector. Conclusions This is the expansion of the innovative education district, and it should be operated as a project with the village community and parents, not as a teacher-centered project. Periodic teacher training is necessary to go together.
