Book Description:
In Progress in Education. Volume 50, the authors present connectivity as a value that presents a numerical increase in the measure that leads to significant, transversal and related learning between the three dimensions analyzed. From these data alongside quotient positivity/negativity, learning dynamics can be characterized. The following chapter deals with the attitude of teachers towards inclusion and identifies several beliefs that are central to an inclusive mindset. Important theoretical constructs such as like self-efficacy, implicit theories of intelligence, and different models of disability are introduced, and their empirical significance in the context of inclusive education is discussed. Another study is included which explored older adults' motivations for and the benefits of participating in cooperative learning groups. Qualitative focus group discussions were held with 13 cooperative learning groups and a total of 93 older adults. The results indicated that the motivations behind participating in cooperative learning groups included curiosity, the desire to promote senior citizens learning camps, the desire to learn exercises, personal interests, the desire to leave the house, the desire to combat physical and mental deterioration, and recommendations from others. The authors present an integrated picture of resource distribution practices in the classroom setting. Rather than examining each resource distribution practice separately, the study conceptualizes all resource distribution practices as an interrelated system of evaluations structured along the dimensions of universalism. The authors set out to demonstrate to teachers, including trainee teachers, how they can use a set of virtual applications to teach the contents of any subject in order to promote an engagement in learning. Thus, they describe a study with trainee teachers to whom a set of apps were presented. During this research, the trainee teachers were taught how they could use these apps in their classes. This book includes a report on research conducted in four South African universities regarding the manner in which newly appointed lecturers join the pool of postgraduate research supervision teams and, most importantly, how interpersonal relations among newly appointed and long service lecturers play out regarding the universities’ access to government subsidies for research output. This book also focuses on the psychological outcome of integrating the learner-oriented approach in the second language learning process of engineering students of the Universitat Politècnica of València through synthesising second language learning and content objectives. Problematic texting in college students is also analyzed in order to determine its relationship to texting dependency and executive function. Moderate problematic texting participants showed the expected dependency on texting and showed deficits across a wide array of executive function indices. (Nova)
