Barrot, Jessie S. – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2021
Given the increasing number of research on social media for educational purposes, few studies have examined the scientific literature in this field of interest. However, reviews that comprehensively mapped this research landscape in a broader view remain very limited. It is on this premise that the current study identifies the growth trajectory,…

Rajagopalan, Kanavillil – Applied Linguistics, 2010
The term "intelligibility" is widely viewed as denoting an ideologically neutral concept and therefore useful in speculating about the future of the English language, especially in the context of its expansion at the current exponential rate and the danger or otherwise of its breaking up into mutually incomprehensible languages, the way Latin did…

Joglekar, Yogesh N.; Wolf, Stephen J. – European Journal of Physics, 2009
We present an introduction to and a tutorial on the properties of the recently discovered ideal circuit element, a memristor. By definition, a memristor M relates the charge "q" and the magnetic flux [phi] in a circuit and complements a resistor R, a capacitor C and an inductor L as an ingredient of ideal electrical circuits. The properties of…

McCormick, Bonnie – American Biology Teacher, 2009
The concept of population growth patterns is a key component of understanding evolution by natural selection and population dynamics in ecosystems. The National Science Education Standards (NSES) include standards related to population growth in sections on biological evolution, interdependence of organisms, and science in personal and social…

Bartlett, Albert A. – Physics Teacher, 1978
Presents part eight of a continuing series on the exponential function in which, given the current population of the Earth and assuming a constant growth rate of 1.9 percent backward looks at world population are made. (SL)

González-Zamar, Mariana-Daniela; Abad-Segura, Emilio – Education Sciences, 2021
Digital design processes in artistic education promote the development of autonomy and self-critical capacities among students. Digital technology has transformed university education and the development of transversal skills. The objective of this study is to analyze research on digital design in art education in the context of higher education…

Block, Per; Stadtfeld, Christoph; Snijders, Tom A. B. – Sociological Methods & Research, 2019
Two approaches for the statistical analysis of social network generation are widely used; the tie-oriented exponential random graph model (ERGM) and the stochastic actor-oriented model (SAOM) or Siena model. While the choice for either model by empirical researchers often seems arbitrary, there are important differences between these models that…

Moye, Johnny J. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Today's world is shaped by technology and products engineered to serve society's needs and wants. The knowledge and skills required to develop and use these products are changing at an exponential rate (NASE&M, 2017; NRC, 2011). In order to understand and meet future challenges, it is vital that the United States produce technology- and…

Coberly-Holt, Patricia; Elufiede, Kemi – Adult Higher Education Alliance, 2019
We currently find ourselves in the midst of the fourth industrial revolution, a time when everything around us is evolving at an exponential pace, which is disrupting virtually every industry around the globe. With today's transformations and changes in the workplace, there are skills needed to remain employed. As we continue along this path,…

Gümüs, Sedat; Gök, Enes; Esen, Murat – Journal of Studies in International Education, 2020
Among the increasing number of academic publications in the field of higher education, studies focusing on internationalization of higher education are on the exponential phase in the last couple of decades. In these efforts, the research on international student mobility (ISM) has been a priority. This current review research uses science mapping…

de Bruin, Anique B. H.; Roelle, Julian; Carpenter, Shana K.; Baars, Martine – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
An exponential increase in the availability of information over the last two decades has asked for novel theoretical frameworks to examine how students optimally learn under these new learning conditions, given the limitations of human processing ability. In this special issue and in the current editorial introduction, we argue that such a novel…

Ober, David R.; Beekman, John A. – Journal of Education and Training Studies, 2016
Cumulative vocabulary models for infants and toddlers were developed from models of learning that predict trajectories associated with low, average, and high vocabulary growth rates (14 to 46 months). It was hypothesized that models derived from rates of learning mirror the type of exchanges provided to infants and toddlers by parents and…

Castiello-Gutiérrez, Santiago – Journal of Comparative and International Higher Education, 2020
Mexico is often portrayed as a colorful country through its art, clothing, architecture and landscapes; but all that color carries in itself contrast. Education, as well as other aspects of public life in Mexico, has been a matter of contrasts since the settlement of the first civilizations. At the beginning of the modern era, as a result of the…

Cherrette, Vivien L.; Hutcherson, Connor J.; Barnett, Jeremy L.; So, Monica C. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Perovskite solar cells have garnered exponential research interest due to their facile fabrication, solution processability, and low cost. However, there have been limited efforts to integrate this class of materials into the undergraduate laboratory curriculum. Therefore, we designed an integrated laboratory experiment in our upper-division…
