Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2014 in the subject Pedagogy - The Teacher, Educational Leadership, grade: 1, University of Hawai`i at Mānoa, course: Research in Dance, language: English, abstract: Currently, in education, there is a movement towards the necessity of a greater representation of highly qualified teachers in schools. Why is there a lack of representation of dance education in the certification of educators for K-12 students? I propose that many states will not allow these programs to exist for fear of lack of enrollment (which is a real problem), and for the fact that governments tend to focus on what is wrong with the inclusion of dance education in training programs, and ignore what is already working. It is much easier, for example, to say that there are not enough schools which offer dance to justify a dance teacher training program than to admit that teacher training programs in dance could, possibly, help raise the number of schools who have dance programs. There is a shift in the idea of educational reforms which exist within this context, and these shift are spearheaded by a few educators that truly care about the state of education today. My research explores what sort of reforms can happen when the United States, as a nation, push towards finding an exemplar example of what works in the teacher training programs (in dance, in particular), and examine the philosophical and curricular viewpoints that are working. To do this, I will be conduc...

8927 руб.
This book is an economic and philosophical discourse on sustainable economic development inspired by Ujamaa and the philosophy of self-reliance advocated by Julius Nyerere as a policy towards social and economic development. The book explores human empowerment as a means to sustainable economic development. It argues that human empowerment in developing countries can build on Nyerere's approach to development founded on community participation. However, self-reliance is not possible without the ability to build sustainable development and-, self-reliance philosophy and efforts towards development in their current forms have lacked the ability to intensify people's capability. Human empowerment is needed to produce people with vision, who can reflect on situations, initiate relevant and responsible action, and thereby transform situations for the common good. The empowerment I recommend is endowed on education, entrepreneurship and civil societies. Building on Amartya Sen's philosophy of the capability approach to development, empowerment will provide relevant solution for developing countries to break away from economic dependency and the vicious cycle of poverty.

For many of the challenges associated with sustainability, there can be found connections with how modern societies produce and consume, with poverty issues or with those related to pollution and destruction of ecosystems. To solve these problems, new approaches are needed. The nature of sustainability and the prospect of unsustainability require a change of lifestyle and therefore of education. Changes are necessary in curricula, pedagogy, policy and institutional structures. Teachers should be encouraged to reinterpret their disciplines in light of a sustainable development agenda. The call for Higher Education to take a leading role in education for sustainability, for a more sustainable future is more insistent. Education is recognized worldwide as a critical platform to enable all sectors of society to learn to manage change and make the transition to sustainable practices. The present book offers a complex view of Sustainability in Higher Education and proposes the changes required for achieving a Sustainable University.

The contributors critically analyse current arrangements in teacher education, development andwork, and highlight the forces that enter in this contested terrain, the sources of conflict and convergence, and theimplication of these for teaching and learning, and for indigenous forms of knowledge and knowledge constructionin the globalisation era.

Technology For Transformation. Perspectives of Hope in the Digital Age

6277 руб.
This book serves as a platform for educators and researchers to unite educational technology and social justice. While educational technology is a rapidly changing and progressive field of research and practice, it remains largely separate from education for social justice. Current literature about educational technology is often approached from a technical, how-to perspective that emphasizes ways to implement technology into the classroom. Technology is often viewed as inevitable, yet neutral and value-free. Educational technology, however, is anything but neutral. The contributors collectively advance a hopeful discourse by exploring the potential of technology as a vehicle to transform and emancipate, while not forgoing a critically reflective measure of self-conscious critique of our own role as educators, students, or scholars in oppressive silences, constraints and conditions. This edited collection makes an important and unique contribution to the field, as it will be the first published volume to detail research, theory, and practice regarding student use of technology in achieving liberatory aims since IAP's 2009 publication, ICT for Education, Development and Social Justice.The fields of educational technology and social justice are vast and applicable in many domains, including teacher education, graduate programs, and K-12 education. This work is intended to appeal to a diverse academic and professional audience of K-12 teachers, teacher educators, educational...

This edited book is a comparative study on teacher education across ten major Englishspeakingregions of the world (USA, English Canada, England and Wales, Scotland,Ireland, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand). The focus onindividual regions is reflective of a comparative approach with a long tradition goingback to the turn of the twentieth century. This approach is still valid at the present time asit provides one of the best ways of initially structuring our understanding of teachereducation at the macro level in order to facilitate communication of the situation crossnationallyand prepare the way for higher levels of analyses. To this end, the book hastwelve chapters: An introductory chapter details the focus of the book. This is followedby a chapter on each of the ten regions. Each of these chapters, written by an expert in thefield:focuses on general trends in teacher education rather than on any specific aspect of it;focuses primarily on pre-service teacher education at the primary and post-primary levels, although some referenceis also made to continuing professional development;strikes a balance between past, present and future trends;deals broadly with access to, the processes involved in, and the structure of, teacher education;has a unique structure rather than one based upon a formulaic approach.In the final chapter major themes are distilled from the case studies.

The P4 Framework is a holistic framework for teacher technology use that discusses the use of technology to enhance instructional practices, teachers' professional development, and general workplace productivity. This framework shows the members of the teacher education field how to use technology not just for pedagogical practices, but also for the practical aspects of teaching. Conversely, it also illustrates the limits of the “tools-only” emphasis that is often promoted through technology conferences and social media.This framework addresses complex issues regarding technology in education: teacher buy-in, balancing teacher and student needs, developing a professional development program that analyzes learners, the community, and teachers. The book is both an easy-to-read guide and a call-to-arms. It encourages school personnel to set benchmarks and track performance changes based on technology initiatives in order to prove to stakeholders that technology is indeed making a difference.

This book is written by a diverse cohort of American educators, including professors, teachers, and school administrators from pre-K to college levels. They come from disciplinary areas of child development, special education, English as a second language, counseling, technology, school administration, educational psychology, educational measurement and testing, as well as mathematics education. The chapters explore various topics, ranging from standardized testing, roles of central office, teacher evaluation, teacher professional development, gender differences, diversity, student engagement and parental involvement, student services provided at school, use of technology with teacher and students' perspectives of technology use, self-efficacy beliefs, to teacher's perspectives of play in early childhood settings. While the chapters reflect diverse conceptual and theoretical orientation, disciplinary focus, methodological emphasis, writing styles, and educational implications, they add together to present a more holistic picture of Chinese education across disciplinary areas. Taken together, these chapters reveal salient similarities and differences in theoretical underpinnings, pedagogical principles and classroom practices in China and in the United States. They also shed light on some of the larger conceptual/theoretical orientations between learning and learners in the two countries. They debunk some common misconceptions of education in the two countries as well....

As ecological issues increase and concern worldwide is mounting about the changing nature of work and cultural life, the field of adult education must respond. Adult education holds much potential for its ability to highlight cultural knowledge, promote change, and maximize the capacity of adults to work together in strengthening mutually supportive communities that contribute to a sustainable future. It is imperative that we (re)educate adults about productive but sustainable work and stronger local community living within an understanding of the relational being and the interdependency of all things. This edited collection explores the cultural roots of the ecological/cultural crisis and its relationship to adult education. The development of sound practices and new cultural understandings among adults are emphasized. Certainly, there exists evidence of small grassroots work that builds hope and skills for the coming of a new age of sustainable and just life. This volume discusses the: Connections between sustainability, environmental and ecojustice education, Forms of radical sustainability adult education, Established cultural institutions as potential agents of change, Principles of ecojustice education, and Implementation of these principles in formal and community education settings. This is the 153rd volume of the Jossey Bass series New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education. Noted for its depth of coverage, it explores issues of common interest to instructors, administrators, counselors, and policymakers in a broad range of education settings, such as colleges and universities, extension programs, businesses, libraries, and museums.

Globalization has challenged and changed roles for governments, non-profits, and non-governmental institutions for countries in the Global South. It has similarly spawned the births of numerous manifestations of non-governmental institutions, which potentially complement the approximately 7,000-9,000 higher education institutions that exist worldwide. Improving education is an oft-cited goal of many countries' development efforts-including Kenya, in her most recent Vision 2030 plan for development-yet many scholars and students alike fall short when they deem only primary or secondary education as the main avenues to realize development goals. This exploratory, qualitative study considers if Kenyan higher education public or private institutions play a role in the country's development process.

Energy and Global Climate Change: Bridging the Sustainable Development Divide focuses attention on two urgent global development challenges faced by the UN and its member states: access to sustainable energy for all, and global climate change. This book presents compelling evidence about an often neglected aspect of the energy-climate change-development nexus faced by millions of poor: problems caused by the use of inefficient and polluting energy sources, and the lack of access to sustainable energy services. Based on a detailed examination of major UN global climate change and sustainable development negotiated outcomes over the course of several decades, this book argues in a powerful and insightful manner that intergovernmental negotiated outcomes aimed at solving the climate change and energy access challenges have been restricted by being placed in different negotiating silos. This “siloization” or compartmentalization has resulted in separate tracks of negotiated outcomes on two inextricably linked global development challenges; and, has thereby hindered prospects for integrated action. This book points out that the existence of these two silos is especially hard to ignore in light of the urgent UN-led quest for an integrated and universal post-2015 development agenda anticipated to be anchored by new sustainable development goals on energy access and climate change. By addressing the heavy reliance on inefficient and polluting energy services which result in indoor air pollution and short lived climate pollutants that tragically impact millions of poor people, this book highlights the unique importance of integrated action on the energy-poverty-climate change nexus in the UN’s post-2015 development era.

Business-as-Usual companies operating within this paradigm are perceived to prosper at the expense of society and environment which is not viable on a finite planet. The need to rethink the purpose of business is inevitable as maximising shareholder value, has been deemed insufficient to create a sustainable society.This study aimed to explore: how business models can be used to create value that supports Strategic Sustainable Development.

Teacher development programmes often fail to produce desired results for lack of conducive syllabus and material. This book is a must read for the ELT community in the Arab world, especially the EFL teachers and the three agencies that are pivotal to educational revolutions: Policy makers, Funding agencies and Teachers as well as a torchbearer for teacher trainers; it actually answers the in-service teachers' need for regular training courses based on their classroom requirements. The teacher in the EL classroom has multiple roles to play: efficient facilitator, monitor, and manager, to mention a few. What is even more challenging is that these roles cannot be defined in any paradigm but have to be constantly re-defined considering the pace at which the knowledge world changes. Teacher development is important also because it has a direct bearing on the learners' improvement. This book aims at tackling all these issues, sets the goals and designs the roads for their realization. Among the very first attempts of its kind in the Arab world, this book can bring teacher development to the core of educational enrichment from its current status of a programme that can be done without.
