Arranz, N.; Arroyabe, M. F.; Fdez. de Arroyabe, J. C. – Studies in Higher Education, 2019
This paper studies entrepreneurial intentions in undergraduate students and the obstacles perceived by the students in the process of starting their own business. Using a sample of 1053 undergraduate students from Andalusia universities, this study explores attitudes, capacities and social environment to determine the profile of university's…

McKinney de Royston, Maxine; Madkins, Tia C.; Givens, Jarvis R.; Nasir, Na'ilah Suad – American Educational Research Journal, 2021
Many Black educators in the United States demonstrate a political clarity about white supremacy and the racialized harm it cultivates in and out of schools. We highlight the perspectives of some of these educators and ask, (1) How do they articulate the need to protect Black children? and (2) What mechanisms of protection do they enact in their…

Pols, C. F. J.; Dekkers, P. J. J. M.; de Vries, M. J. – International Journal of Science Education, 2021
This paper explores students' ability to analyse and interpret empirical data as inadequate data analysis skills and understandings may contribute to the renowned disappointing outcomes of practical work in secondary school physics. Selected competences, derived from a collection of leading curricula, are explored through interviews and practical…

Hamers, Pauline C. M.; Savas, Mesut; van Rossum, Elisabeth F. C.; de Rijke, Yolanda B.; Bindels, Patrick J. E.; Festen, Dederieke A. M.; Hermans, Heidi – Journal of Applied Research in Intellectual Disabilities, 2021
Background: Depressive symptoms and stress are common in adults with intellectual disabilities. Our aim was to explore long-term biological stress levels, assessed by hair cortisol (HairF) and cortisone (HairE) concentrations, in adults with intellectual disabilities and depressive symptoms and to investigate the effects of bright light therapy…

Cañigueral, Roser; Hamilton, Antonia F. de C. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Autistic people process gaze differently than typical people, but it is not yet clear if these differences lie in the processing of eye-shapes or the belief in whether others can see (perceptual mentalizing). We aimed to investigate whether these two models of gaze processing modulate social seeking in typical and autistic adults. We measured…

Cañigueral, Roser; Ward, Jamie A; Hamilton, Antonia F. de C. – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2021
Communication with others relies on coordinated exchanges of social signals, such as eye gaze and facial displays. However, this can only happen when partners are able to see each other. Although previous studies report that autistic individuals have difficulties in planning eye gaze and making facial displays during conversation, evidence from…

Ferreira, Renata C.; Frota, Mirna A.; de Vasconcelos Filho, José E.; Bastos, Antônio P. F.; Luna, Geisy L. M.; Rolim, Karla M. C. – Journal of School Health, 2020
Background: At a time and educational context favorable to technologies and innovations, we took the initiative to mobile phone applications (apps) relevant to school violence in an effort to be responsive to a growing public health problem in multiple countries. Methods: In this study, we compared and verified the features of 10 apps for…

de Guerrero, María C. M. – Language Teaching, 2018
Roughly 30 years ago researchers in the second language acquisition (SLA) field started to take a focused interest in the study of inner speech (IS) and private speech (PS) processes in second language (L2) learning and use. The purpose of this review is to assess the status of current research and the progress made during the last ten years on…

Forbes, Paul A. G.; Hamilton, Antonia F. de C. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Understanding other people's emotional states involves integrating multiple sources of information, such as someone's smile (affective cue) with our knowledge that they have passed an exam (situational cue). We explored whether autistic adults display differences in how they integrate these cues by showing participants videos of students receiving…

De Cicco, F.; Balzano, E.; Limata, B. N.; Masullo, M. R.; Quarto, M.; Roca, V.; Sabbarese, C.; Pugliese, M. – Physics Education, 2017
There is a growing interest in engaging students and the general public about the meaning and objectives of doing science. When it is possible students can learn by actively engaging in the practices of science, conducting investigations, sharing ideas with their peers, teachers and scientists, learning to work with measuring apparatuses, to…

Klafke, Renata; De Oliveira, M. C. V.; Ferreira, J. M. – Journal of Education, 2020
In Brazil, like in most Latin America countries, the educational system is basically composed of private and public education institutions. Public universities depend almost exclusively on tuition fees paid by the students. Public professors are insolvent, and very rarely provided with the resources they desperately need, whereas private…

De Bordes, Pieter F.; Hasselman, Fred; Cox, Ralf F. A. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019
From a perceptual learning perspective, infants use social information (like gaze direction) in a similar way as other information in our physical environment (like object movements) to specify action possibilities. In the current study, we assumed that infants are able to learn an affordance upon observing an adult failing to act out that…

Ribeiro, Williams J. M.; de Sousa, J. Ricardo – Physics Teacher, 2021
During elementary physics courses, many examples in mechanics are studied without considering air resistance effects. We can mention, for example, projectile motion and free fall, among many others. Only brief studies of such systems in classical mechanics courses consider linear air resistance (F[subscript drag] [is proportional to] v), which is…

De Witt, M. W.; Lessing, A. C. – Early Child Development and Care, 2018
Many South African children struggle in acquiring literacy and reading skills. It seems as if caregivers may be missing an important aspect in guiding children's emergent reading development. The question is whether there are underlying concepts needed for emergent literacy and the acquisition of reading skills. The nature of the reading process…

De Witt, M. W.; Lessing, A. C. – Early Child Development and Care, 2018
Mastering emergent reading requires applicable concepts and processes, which implies proficiency regarding the neurological executive function. Relevant neurological processes include attention, planning, initiation of activity, inhibition, working memory, shifting of attention, and mental flexibility. A training programme, incorporating concept…
