Fernekes, William R. – Journal of International Social Studies, 2016
Global citizenship education (GCE) and human rights education (HRE) offer substantive contributions to civic education.

Dixon-Román, Ezekiel – Research in Education, 2017
This article engages the philosophy of science of data, with a focus on the extent to which data are always already imbued with racializations. As Alexander Weheliye has argued, racializations are not to be reduced to race but rather is the sociopolitical process that hierarchizes and differentiates bodies producing the entangled by-products of…

Bell, Michael – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
What is thought, and how can it be taught? Philosophy and literature have often promoted different conceptions although each requires, consciously or not, a mutually inclusive understanding. The question of value, which lurks at the centre of this, was given special salience by the literary critic, and 'anti-philosopher', F. R. Leavis who still…

Misawa, Koichiro – Ethics and Education, 2016
Approaches to studying the "social" are prominent in educational research. Yet, because of their insufficient acknowledgement of the social nature of human beings and the reality we experience, such attempts often commit themselves to the dualism of scheme and content, which in turn is a by-product of the underlying dualism of reason and…

Lakomski, Gabriele; Evers, Colin W. – Journal of Educational Administration, 2010
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to argue that emotion has a central role to play in rational decision making based on recent research in the neuroanatomy of emotion.

Cheng, Chung-ying – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2016
In this article, I present a model of four dimensions for the idea of learning in the classical Confucian perspective. This model is intended to capture the most essential four aspects of learning which explain why self-cultivation of a human person toward an end of self-fulfillment and social transformation of humanity is possible. I shall also…

Penezic, Zvjezdan; Lackovic-Grgin, Katica; Tucak, Ivana; Nekic, Marina; Zorga, Sonja; Skraban, Olga Poljsak; Vehovar, Urban – Social Indicators Research, 2008
One of the widest elaborations of generativity today is the theoretical model proposed by McAdams and de St. Aubin. This model has not yet been tested completely, that is only some of its components and their relations have been tested. The main reasons for such an empirical status of the model are inadequately clear operationalizations of the…

Berryman, Mere; Ford, Therese; Nevin, Ann; SooHoo, Suzanne – International Journal of Special Education, 2015
As our education systems become more culturally, ethnically and linguistically diverse, rather than benefiting and learning from each other, we still expect all students to be represented within the same curriculum, pedagogy and testing regimen or we form separate enclaves resulting in marginalizaton. When diverse students have physical and/or…

Kennedy, David – Educational Theory, 2017
In this essay David Kennedy argues that children represent one vanguard of an emergent shift in Western subjectivity, and that adult-child dialogue, especially in the context of schooling, is a key locus for the epistemological change that implies. Following Herbert Marcuse's invocation of a "new sensibility," Kennedy argues that the…

Wang, Victor C. X.; Sedivy-Benton, Amy Lynn – New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, 2016
Well-reasoned leadership theories are described in many academic books, yet they may not apply specifically to practices in higher education. In higher education, the absence of tailored leadership theories is compounded by the lack of technical skills or leadership ethics, resulting in leadership issues that impact the organization. To illustrate…

Crupi, Vincenzo; Nelson, Jonathan D.; Meder, Björn; Cevolani, Gustavo; Tentori, Katya – Cognitive Science, 2018
Searching for information is critical in many situations. In medicine, for instance, careful choice of a diagnostic test can help narrow down the range of plausible diseases that the patient might have. In a probabilistic framework, test selection is often modeled by assuming that people's goal is to reduce uncertainty about possible states of the…

Developments in neurobiology are providing new insights into the biological and physical features of human thinking, and brain-activation imaging methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging have become the most dominant research techniques to approach the biological part of thinking. With the aid of neurobiology, there also have been…

Stebleton, Michael J. – NACADA Journal, 2011
Immigrant college student populations continue to grow, but the complexity of their unique needs and issues remain relatively unknown. To gain a better understanding of the multiple contextual factors impacting immigrant students from a systems-based approach, I applied Bronfenbrenner's (1977) human ecology framework to the study. Students…
