      Authors: Qing Li, Joseph Runciman
      Pages: 99 - 126
      Abstract: : This study explores an online learning world where game development was a center piece and social learning was an inherent feature rather than imposed. Grounded in enactivism, this paper examines the affordances of this environment, focusing on sociocultural perspectives. This qualitative case study involved 35 participating educators. Data included educators’ online interactions and written work. The results showed that the learning environment afforded ample opportunities for social learning, as reflected in the extent and ways the educators interacted and collaborated with each other. A total of nine categories of interactions were identified, illustrating the diverse types of social communication. Culture of learning, trauma, and games contributing to the formation of a culture were some major themes identified in educators’ reflections.

  • A Brief Survey of the Historical Development of Idealistic Educational
           Philosophy

      Authors: Omar M. Khasawneh
      Pages: 127 - 174
      Abstract: : The purpose of this study was to survey the historical development of the idealistic educational philosophy. Seven Idealistic educational philosophers were briefly reviewed in order to shed light on their influence on educational practices. Those eminent thinkers were Plato, Augustine, Descartes, Berkeley, Kant, Hegel, and Royce. As a classical philosophy, idealism was occasionally labeled as inflexible and traditional. A significant result of this study was that no philosophers agreed and settled on every single argument even though they all agreed on several fundamental principles. The researcher used a qualitative methodology for data collection and literature, research, research papers, books, journal articles as a method of documentation. Based on this review of seven idealistic philosophical perspectives, the researcher provided some recommendations, the most important of which was to conduct similar studies by including other idealistic philosophers, and studies that focus on their educational thought. Additionally, the researcher recommended develop learners’ thoughts and beliefs regarding the idealistic approaches, techniques, methods, and practices of teaching and learning such as dialectic, dialogue, and discussion.

  • Nuts and Bolts of Educational Policy and Educational Governance: Unpacking
           the Nexus between the Two through a Holistic Educational Policy-Governance
           Approach

      Authors: Kashif Raza, Catherine Chua
      Pages: 175 - 200
      Abstract: : Just like that ancient riddle about who came first between the egg and the chicken, researchers interested in educational policy and educational governance keep arguing whether educational policies guide institutional governance or institutional governance controls educational policy formation, implementation, and reform. Although there is consensus about the interconnectedness between the two, controversies about their roles in each other’s establishment and functioning continue to surface in literature on the topics and researchers remain interested in investigating the nexus between them. However, there is still confusion about what to consider when performing an educational policy-governance analysis. This paper discusses the relationship between educational policy and educational governance, and the debates surrounding their influence on each other. The findings of our literature review reveal that whether it is educational policy or governance, they can be categorized into three levels (top-down, bottom-up and middle-out) in terms of planning, implementation and review. Although traditional educational policy-governance analysis that usually focuses on one of the three levels may help understand each level separately, this paper proposes a holistic educational policy-governance approach (HEPGA) that can be useful in considering the complexity, interconnectedness and collectivism that characterize contemporary educational policy-governance practices.

  • A Comparison Between Physical Education in Canadian Schools Versus
           Egyptian Schools: A First Reflection

      Authors: Hesham Ahmed, Hossam Elhady

      Abstract: : This paper compares the major aspects of the Canadian and Egyptian curricula in physical education. The paper presented each country's geography and demography background, reflecting the aim of the physical education curricula. Also, considering the governance of education, how each country shapes its curricula, and how they form the policy of the physical education aims. We also conducted a small interview with a few children who had studied for at least one year in an Egyptian school and then came to Canada and spent at least a term in Canadian schools in order to understand how they felt in those different educational systems. This comparison showed some preliminary outcomes that will be useful to the Egyptian side to get an idea of how the curriculum gets shaped in one of the developed countries and also provides a general understanding of the education system in both countries. The paper showed some similarities but also illustrated huge gaps between the two countries in particular aspects, such as the ratio between the number of students and the schools, the expenditures on education, and the elements that shape each country's physical education curricula.
