Winings, Kathy – Religious Education, 2019

Dreas-Shaikha, Maryann J. – Online Submission, 2018
There is a serious need to reconsider the adult-led, grade-centered parent teacher meetings which are standard school practice.

Gary, Kevin – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2018
Sociologist Zygmunt Bauman characterizes this era as a time of "liquid modernity." Rather than settled meanings, categories, and frames of reference, Bauman contends that meaning is always in flux, open-ended rather than closed. This flux is in large part driven and exacerbated by a culture of consumerism. This phenomenology of the…

Cooke, Audrey – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Although it is now more commonly acknowledged that young children can engage with mathematics, it is not as commonly acknowledged that really young children (such as those aged under three years) can engage with and think mathematically.
