Grossen, Michèle; Muller Mirza, Nathalie – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
In Switzerland, as elsewhere, issues dealing with cultural diversity raise major challenges in education.

Drawing on a sociocultural and dialogical approach to learning, this study aimed at understanding…

Brandenberger, Claudia C.; Hagenauer, Gerda; Hascher, Tina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Especially for students in lower achievement levels, there is a significant negative trend in academic self-determined motivation across childhood through adolescence and more so in maths than in any other school subject. To counteract this negative development, a multicomponent intervention study based on the main ideas of self-determination…

Muller Mirza, Nathalie; Perret-Clermont, Anne-Nelly – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2016
Far from following a linear process from its conception to its implementation, an educational design often involves discrepancies between what its promoters intended and what the participants actually do. In this paper, drawing from a sociocultural perspective to learning, we focus our attention precisely on some of the discrepancies observed…

Gurtner, Jean-Luc; Gulfi, Alida; Genoud, Philippe A.; de Rocha Trindade, Bernardo; Schumacher, Jerome – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2012
In Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the majority of 15-19-year olds follow vocational education programmes within a dual-track system, spending most of their time in a company and going to school only 1 day each week. With their separate aims, content and sociological organisation, the company and the school can be considered as two distinct…

Zittoun, Tania – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2008
In this paper two models are proposed for analysing transitions in education. Firstly, transitions are the processes that follow ruptures perceived by people. They include learning, identity change, and meaning making processes. Secondly, processes of change are observed through a semiotic prism, articulating self-other-object-sense of the object…

Quiamzade, Alain – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2007
This study (N=75) examined the influence dynamics that take place between two competent individuals presenting divergent solutions for a cognitive task. The hypothesis was that such settings (i.e., conflict of competencies) are unlikely to have a positive effect on intellectual performance because of the representation of the task, and that an…

210 children (110 girls and 100 boys) were interviewed individually about causes that lead to success or to failure in school tests. They were presented fictitious scenarios about an unknown peer who had either success or failure in a dictation task and a sums task. The free answers were taken as mirroring means-ends beliefs of the interviewed…

Bogner, Franz X.; Wiseman, Michael – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2002
This paper describes, by focusing on factor analytic structures, pupils' reactions towards the utilisation and preservation of nature. A previously hypothesised model based on these two domains (comprised of 5 primary factors) was shown to be valid for four different Western European pupil samples: CH, D, DK, IRL. The empirical basis of this…

Bogner, Franz X. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2002
This empirical study finds support for the hypothesis that participation in a special residential education programme enhances facets of pupils' environmental perception. A 4-day extra-curricular educational unit with a cognitive outdoors focus (established in a nature centre in France) was surveyed by using a two stage sampling design in a…

In this study, 434 children and adolescents completed the Control-, Agency-, and Means-ends beliefs Interview (CAMI). Moreover, we asked for current mood-state and achievement-related affect after success and failure at school. There was no gender difference in achievement-related affective expression in children (9 and 10 years old), but there…

Pierrehumbert, Blaise; Ramstein, Tatjana; Karmaniola, Athanassia; Halfon, Olivier – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 1996
Considers the implications of nonparental care for cognitive development and behavior problems in Swiss young children. Finds that the effect of nonparental care on behavior problems was mediated by the pattern of attachment to the mother and that the effect on cognitive development was mediated by the quality of care.
