McPhail, Graham – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2020
The aim of this paper is to contribute to the debate about the phenomenon known in Aotearoa New Zealand as "twenty-first Century Learning." In recent additions to the local literature Hirschman and Wood (2018) have noted a lack of critical engagement with this narrative which is fast becoming normalised in New Zealand, and Lourie (2020)…

Aguilar-Magallón, Daniel Aurelio; Reyes-Martìnez, Isaid – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2016
We analyze and discuss ways in which prospective high school teachers pose and pursue questions or problems during the process of reconstructing dynamic configurations of figures given in problem statements. To what extent does the systematic use of a Dynamic Geometry System (DGS) help the participants engage in problem posing activities…

Gómez-Arciga, Adrián; Olvera-Martínez, Carmen; Aguilar-Magallón, Daniel A.; Fernández, William Enrique Poveda – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2018
In this study we analyze and contrast approaches that future high school math teachers show when solving word problems with the use of pencil and paper and later, with the use of a Dynamic Geometry System (DGS). The resources, representations, strategies and forms of mathematical reasoning that the participants exhibit when they use GeoGebra in…

Baldwin, Christopher; Bensimon, Estela Mara; Dowd, Alicia C.; Kleiman, Lisa – New Directions for Community Colleges, 2011
Student success is at the heart of both institutional effectiveness and the community college mission, yet measuring such success at community colleges is problematic. This article highlights three efforts to grapple with this problem--a multistate work group of system- and state-level policymakers to create an improved set of student success…

Baker, Bernadette – International Journal of Inclusive Education, 2007
In this paper, the author sidles up to the "problema" of identifying children as having a learning disability (LD) in the USA to ascertain what an analysis of limping characters, limping readers and limping rhythms might teach individuals about justice. In much current educational literature children labelled LD circulate as "maimed individuals"…
