Ella Anghel; Joshua Littenberg-Tobias; Justin Reich – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2024
Identifying online users' contexts can help researchers understand their needs. However, the validity of different methods for identifying the location of online users has been underexplored. This paper proposes using multiple methods and examining their impact on different research questions to determine their validity. It then demonstrates this…

Davis, Sara D.; Peterson, Daniel J. – Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, 2022
There is an increasing need in eyewitness identification research to identify factors that not only influence identification accuracy but may also impact the confidence--accuracy (CA) relationship. One such variable that has a notable impact on memory for faces is viewing distance, with faces encoded from a shorter distance remembered better than…

Riveros, Augusto; Nyereyemhuka, Nyasha – International Journal of Leadership in Education, 2023
In this conceptual paper, we propose that a theorization of space has the potential to advance the scope of research methods in educational administration and leadership. In particular, we argue for the incorporation of the notion of 'spatial justice' to the research, analysis, and practice of educational administration and leadership in…

Yifan Gong; Todd R. Stinebrickner; Ralph Stinebrickner; Yuxi Yao – National Bureau of Economic Research, 2024
We examine the initial post-college geographic location decisions of students from hometowns in the Appalachian region that often lack substantial high-skilled job opportunities, focusing on the role of non-pecuniary considerations. Novel survey questions in the spirit of the contingent valuation approach allow us to measure the full non-pecuniary…

Josh Lerner; Henry J. Manley; Carolyn Stein; Heidi L. Williams – National Bureau of Economic Research, 2024
University-based scientific research has long been argued to be a central source of commercial innovation and economic growth. Yet at the same time, there have been long-held concerns that many university-based discoveries never realize their potential social benefits. Looking across universities, research and commercialization activities such as…

Esteban-Guitart, Moises; Iglesias, Edgar; Serra, Josep Maria; Subero, David – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2023
This theoretical article explores the concept of community funds of knowledge and identity to complement the two related notions of funds of knowledge (focused on the knowledge and skills of families) and funds of identity (students' practices and lived experiences). By "community funds of knowledge and identity," we mean the…

Kirkorian, Heather; Simmering, Vanessa – Developmental Science, 2023
Young children exhibit a video deficit for spatial recall, learning less from on-screen than in-person demonstrations. Some theoretical accounts emphasize memory constraints (e.g., insufficient retrieval cues, competition between memory representations). Such accounts imply memory representations are graded, yet video deficit studies measuring…

Lee, Sangwoo – Higher Education Policy, 2023
This paper examines if universities in the UK mediate the impacts of spatial inequalities on earnings disparities among similar graduates and provides new evidence on the persistent income inequality at the neighbourhood level, using the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey data on the population of individuals graduating…

Swechcha Roy; Saikat Kumar Paul; Amarjeet Kumar; Vivek Agnihotri – International Journal of Educational Reform, 2024
Location of schools is one of the most important factors for encouraging active school transportation. The study identifies a gap that children lose a considerable amount of time in their school trips. The reason behind this is also identified: the ignorance of the population's preferences while planning for this infrastructure. Location of…

Lipscombe, T. C.; Robinson, Ian M. – Physics Education, 2021
The most important question for anyone born in London is 'Are you a Cockney?' Only those born within the sound of Bow bells can truthfully answer the question with a resounding 'yes.' 'Cockney' is a term of pride in the heart of the East End, an area recently made internationally famous to a new audience due to the global success of the TV series…
