Hilty, Lorenz M.; Huber, Patrizia – International Journal of Sustainability in Higher Education, 2018
Purpose: Sustainable development (SD) does not usually form part of the curriculum of ICT-related study programs such as Computer Science, Information Technology, Information Systems, and Informatics. However, many topics form a bridge between SD and ICT and could potentially be integrated into ICT-related study programs. This paper reports the…

Roberts, J. W. – Physics Education, 2018
Nuclear energy produces low carbon, safe and reliable electricity so is it now time for the UK to invest in this proven technology or are the misplaced perceptions regarding its safety, cost and the quantities of radioactive waste produced causing us to overlook nuclear as a major component of our electricity mix? This paper discusses these issues…

Ulrich, Edward T. – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2018
For the first time, in 2008, I offered a world religions study abroad course in South India. The special emphasis was meeting and befriending locals, and the centerpiece of the course was a six-night stay in rural homes. I considered this immersion in a Hindu context to be the best setting for learning Hindu thought. However, the environment was…

Mocombe, Paul C. – Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education, 2018
In this article, I argue that resolving the Black-White academic achievement gap is incompatible with the emerging issues of global climate change. That is, solutions (equitable funding of schools and resources, school integration movements, and after-school and mentoring programs) for closing the gap in order so that Blacks in America and…

Xiong, Qing; Luo, Mingliang; Bao, Xiaoming; Deng, Yurong; Qin, Song; Pu, Xuemei – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
This experiment is dedicated to second-year and above undergraduates who are in their experimental session of the analytical chemistry course. Grouped students are required to use a TiO[subscript 2] photocatalytic oxidation process to treat the methanol-containing wastewater that resulted from their previous HPLC experiments. Students learn to…

Sechi, Guido; Borri, Dino; De Lucia, Caterina; Celmins, Viesturs – Environmental Education Research, 2018
How do people learn about the environment and behave accordingly? What is the cognitive process at the base of this learning mechanism? The present paper is a pilot work investigating the dynamics of individual environmental knowledge on the basis of social capital theory. Using Tsai and Ghoshal's findings, a well known framework widely accepted…

Page, Tom – Journal of Educational Technology, 2018
Sustainable design when used in educational building design has large effect or features the buildings possess and it also effects the users interaction with the building. This effect needs to be determined whether it is positive or negative one. Multiple case studies and a main case study of The Loughborough Design School were researched and…

Kitagawa, Laura; Pomba, Elizabeth; Davis, Tina – Science and Children, 2018
Makerspaces have become very popular in education because they "provide hands-on, creative ways to encourage students to design, experiment, build, and invent as they deeply engage in science, engineering, and tinkering" (Cooper 2013). Not only do makerspaces provide a safe learning environment for students to develop their 21st century…

Zhu, Wenyu – Applied Environmental Education and Communication, 2018
A green public sphere is important for the free environmental communication in a country. However, this concept is relatively new to the public in China. Here we show that the PM2.5 event in 2011 play an important role in the formation of a green public sphere in China. First, we reviewed the PM2.5 event in China and the basic theory of green…

M? Quyên Lê, Katrina; Butterfield, Anthony; Kelly, Kerry; Gaillardon, Pierre-Emmanuel; Tingey, Kyle; Becnel, Thomas – Chemical Engineering Education, 2018
Using low-cost electronic components and building blocks, we have developed an effective teaching module where students design and test light-scattering, air-quality sensors to introduce them to chemical and environmental engineering research. This module has been successful in engaging the public, developing citizen scientists, and bridging gaps…

Smearsoll, Gina – Science Teacher, 2017
Teaching the children of today about nature is important as they become increasingly removed from the natural world. Children should be exposed to environmental issues so that they will become environmentally aware adults. This article describes a project in which high school biology students teach preschool students about a local environmental…
