Bessant, Judith – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2014
Whilst the dynamics informing processes have taken time to become clear, civic resistance initiated by young people using new media began in Egypt in 2010 against the Mubarak regime, soon widened to Tunisia, Yemen and Libya. Known as the "Arab Spring", this phenomenon re-ignited discussion about the political role of digital space and…

Hill, Paul T.; Jochim, Ashley E. – University of Chicago Press, 2014
America's education system faces a stark dilemma: it needs governmental oversight, rules and regulations, but it also needs to be adaptable enough to address student needs and the many different problems that can arise at any given school--something that large educational bureaucracies are notoriously bad at. Paul Hill and Ashley Jochim offer here…

Eckstein, Katharina; Noack, Peter – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2014
Despite the importance of a democratic school context, little is known about its underling processes. The present research examined in how far a positive social-emotional classroom climate, namely perceptions of community in class and fairness of teachers, furthers students' democratic experiences in school (i.e., open classroom climate for…

Veugelers, Wiel, Ed.; O'Hair, Mary John, Ed. – Open University Press, 2005
School-university networks are becoming an important method to enhance educational renewal and student achievement.

The theoretical base of networking…

Waghid, Yusef – Educational Theory, 2005
In this essay I attempt to show that compassionate and imaginative action have the potential to extend some of the fundamental dimensions of democratic citizenship education: deliberative argumentation and the recognition of what is other and different. I argue that cultivating democratic citizenship in schools and universities cannot focus solely…

Ps under, M. – Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, 2005
Effective schoolwork includes discipline. Which disciplinary approach, however, is the most effective in a democratic society, and are schools practicing it? In this study 55 class teachers of 11-14 year-olds, and 245 6th-grade and 8th-grade students of primary school in Slovenia were surveyed to determine the teachers' predominant disciplinary…

Schubert, William H. – IAP - Information Age Publishing, Inc., 2010
Love, Justice, and Education by William H. Schubert brings to life key ideas in the work of John Dewey and their relevance for the world today. He does this by imagining continuation of a highly evocative article that Dewey published in the New York Times in 1933. Dewey wrote from the posture of having visited Utopia. Schubert begins each of…

Bowers, Bret – CEA Forum, 2010
This section articulates classroom design as a technology. However, by technology I do not simply mean the ways in which technology is used in the writing classroom, but that the classroom space itself functions as a technology. Like Katherine Fredlund and Vanessa Cozza, I too will be discussing the design of the classroom; however, unlike them I…

Boyd, Danah – EDUCAUSE Review, 2010
The future of Web 2.0 is about content streams or streams of information. The metaphor implied by "streams" is powerful. The idea is that individuals are living inside the stream: adding to it, consuming it, redirecting it. The goal today is to be attentively aligned--"in flow"--with these information streams, to be aware of information as it…
