Berson, Michael J.; Berson, Ilene R. – Social Education, 2020
The reality is that digital archives are fragile. Many people appreciate how information technology has revolutionized their lives but have spent little time reflecting on the historical significance of the migration from a print-based to a digital society. In the 100th year of the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS), it seems timely to…

Cohn, Marisa Leavitt – ProQuest LLC, 2013
In studying technological change, we often seek to understand the dynamics of how technologies and practice shape each other over time, examining sites of innovation, adaptation, and appropriation, of making and re-making systems anew. However less attention has been given to how formerly cutting-edge technologies become old, how people work…

School improvement programs that work in some places don't work in others. School improvement programs that work with some students don't work with others.

Koutsopoulos, Kostis C.; Papoutsis, Panos – Educational Policy Analysis and Strategic Research, 2016
Nowadays for an appropriate way to deal with teaching and learning there is an axiomatic need to accept an integrated-holistic approach both in terms of the way we regard education and of how we practice it. This leads to a two-prong position: First, that education constitutes a dialectic entity and second that approaches to education presently in…

General economic uncertainty and ongoing issues with information technology (IT) funding in higher education are impacting the general availability and allocation of funds to community colleges and, subsequently, to IT.

Brady, Henry – Center for Studies in Higher Education, 2013
Politics, economics, and technology have conspired to make this an exceptionally challenging time for American higher education.

They believe these institutions will soon go the way of the railroads as for-profit institutions displace…

Li, Xin – ProQuest LLC, 2011
In this dissertation, I study economics textbook markets as an example of durable goods monopoly. Textbooks are protected by copyrights, and from a student's point of view, different textbooks are not good substitutes because students wish to use the textbook adopted by their instructors. Therefore sellers have market power. Textbooks can be…

Kitts, James A. – Social Forces, 2009
Theorists agree that the risk of folding changes as organizations age, but there is little consensus as to the general form or generative processes of age-dependent mortality.
