de Morais, Marianna Müller; Rapsová, Lucia – Australian Journal of Adult Learning, 2019
According to international documents, older people have the right to fully develop their skills and and knowledge, and to have a sense of dignity. Seniors with disabilities also have the same rights. For this reason, it is necessary to provide personal development and education that enables a good quality of life, in spite of their disability.…

Stevens, Laura; Kopnina, Helen; Mulder, Karel; De Vries, Marc – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2021
Preliminary empirical research conducted by the leading author has shown that design students using biological analogies, or models across different contexts, often misinterpreted these, intentionally or unintentionally, during design. By copying shape or form without integrating the main function of the mimicked biological model, students failed…

Dias, Marcelo de Oliveira – Pedagogical Research, 2021
The construction of the National Common Curricular Base (NCCB) for the area of Mathematics and its High School Technologies in Brazil and the last update of the Mathematics Program for High School in Paraguay are prescribed curriculum documents in force for the teaching of Mathematics in these countries. The construction of each one of them…

de Villiers, Michael – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2020
This short note presents and discusses an interesting area partition result related to a parallelogram. It is, then, shown how proving the result, and understanding why the result is true based on the principle of conservation of the area of triangles with the same base and between the same parallel lines, leads to further generalizations to…

De Winter, James; Airey, John – Physics Education, 2020
When qualifying as a secondary school physics teacher in England, the statutory guidance is generic and very little subject-specific detail is offered. There is a lack of a clear, shared understanding of the subject-specific attributes that newly-qualified physics teachers are expected to have. This exploratory study reports the findings of a…

de Mestre, Neville – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2017
Earlier "Discovery" articles (de Mestre, 1999, 2003, 2006, 2010, 2011) considered patterns from many mathematical situations. This article presents a group of patterns used in 19th century mathematical textbooks. In the days of earlier warfare, cannon balls were stacked in various arrangements depending on the shape of the pile base…

Waters, Theodore E. A.; Facompré, Christopher R.; Van de Walle, Magali; Dujardin, Adinda; De Winter, Simon; Heylen, Joke; Santens, Tara; Verhees, Martine; Finet, Chloë; Bosmans, Guy – Developmental Psychology, 2019
There is limited research examining stability and change in attachment security in middle childhood. The current study addresses this gap using data from a 3-year longitudinal study. Specifically, we examined stability and change in secure base script knowledge during middle childhood using a sample of 157 children (Wave 1 mean age [M[subscript…

De France, Kalee; Hollenstein, Tom – Developmental Psychology, 2019
The specific strategies that individuals use to regulate their emotions have shown strong associations with various indices of well-being. However, theoretical accounts suggest that strategy use, and the associations between strategy use and well-being, may change across the life span. Attempts have been made to assess whether levels of strategy…

Yik, Brandon J.; Dood, Amber J.; Cruz-Ramirez de Arellano, Daniel; Fields, Kimberly B.; Raker, Jeffrey R. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Acid-base chemistry is a key reaction motif taught in postsecondary organic chemistry courses. More specifically, concepts from the Lewis acid-base model are broadly applicable to understanding mechanistic ideas such as electron density, nucleophilicity, and electrophilicity; thus, the Lewis model is fundamental to explaining an array of reaction…

de Klerk, Edwin Darrell; Palmer, June Monica – Issues in Educational Research, 2020
It is vital that in-service teachers transcend their professional knowledge, towards a recurrently developing research base about transformative social justice issues. This paper provides a theoretical lens from a South African education policy perspective on how in-service teachers could develop professional knowledge about transformative social…

Lopez De Mesa, Juliana Acosta – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
Charles Sanders Peirce did not present a full account of a philosophy of education in his open-ended conception of a philosophical system. However, he did have multiple and scattered reflections on the subject that can be used for addressing and criticising our conceptions of education. This article has been conceived as part of a broader project…

Luna De La Rosa, Mari; Jun, Alexander – Christian Higher Education, 2019
In this essay, we contend that there is much unfinished business ahead for Christian higher education. Our argument is grounded in the cumulative impact of long-standing frameworks and an expanding knowledge base on diversity and social justice in higher education. In 2013, we edited a special volume of this journal calling for focused work on…

Singer-Brodowski, Mandy; Brock, Antje; Grund, Julius; de Haan, Gerhard – Environmental Education Research, 2021
While science-policy interfaces (SPIs) are argued to be crucial in developing and implementing effective public policy programmes, what happens in a particular SPI policy-research relationship remains under-researched, particularly in relation to 'success criteria' for policy makers and researchers. In this article, we address this gap by…

Van De Bogart, Kevin L. – ProQuest LLC, 2017
Instruction in analog electronics is an integral component of many physics and engineering programs, and is typically covered in courses beyond the first year. While extensive research has been conducted on student understanding of introductory electric circuits, to date there has been relatively little research on student learning of analog…

de França, Vitoria Costa Pereira Lopes Alves; Campos, Wellington Ferreira – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
Advances in physiology and other fields are strongly associated with a solid base knowledge of biochemistry and cell metabolism. On the other hand, the complex and abstract nature of metabolic pathways, the traditional lecture method, and other factors made the teaching-learning process of biochemistry a challenging endeavor. To overcome this, we…
