Badia, Antoni; Liesa, Eva; Becerril, Lorena; Mayoral, Paula – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Over the last 30 years, a substantial number of publications have attempted to conceptualise the ways in which teachers carry out inquiries in order to affect changes in educational practice. A number of different psychological models have been applied to the study of teachers' activities as inquirers, including models focusing on teachers'…

Panadero, Ernesto; Broadbent, Jaclyn; Boud, David; Lodge, Jason M. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Recently, the concept of evaluative judgement has gained attention as a pedagogical approach to classroom formative assessment practices. Evaluative judgement is the capacity to be able to judge the work of oneself and that of others, which implies developing knowledge about one's own assessment capability. A focus on evaluative judgement helps us…

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…

Capraro, Robert M.; Capraro, Mary Margaret; Rupley, William H. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2012
There is a reciprocal relationship between mathematics and reading cognition. Metacognitive training within reading-enhanced problem solving should facilitate students developing an awareness of what good readers do when reading for meaning in solving mathematical problems enabling them to apply these strategies. The constructs for each cognitive…

Fagnant, Annick; Crahay, Marcel – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2011
This paper seeks to highlight the links and discrepancies between three contemporary theoretical fields. The first part is devoted to theories of mind and personal epistemology.

Hasse, Cathrine – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2008
It has been argued that in higher education academic disciplines can be seen as communities of practices. This implies a focus on what constitutes identities in academic culture. In this article I argue that the transition from newcomer to a full participant in a community of practice of physicists entails a focus on how identities emerge in…

Pramling, Niklas – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2006
This article is about the contributions children make in clinical interviews. This issue is studied by re-analysing a selection of the empirical excerpts used by Piaget in his seminal book The Child's Conception of the World. The focus is on how children use language non-literally, and especially on how they use meta-communicative markers ("as…

Farrell, Peter – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2006
This article discusses some of the problems and possibilities facing educational psychologists (EPs) as they strive to take a proactive role in promoting inclusion in their daily work.

Gorgorio, Nuria; Planas, Nuria – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2005
Drawing on socio-cultural theory, we understand the norms regulating the practices within the mathematics classroom as resulting from the social representations of the socially dominant groups and of the school culture related to what constitutes learning mathematics. Immigrant students, having their own personal histories as members of particular…

Hatano, Giyoo; Inagaki, Kayoko – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 1997
Explores the intuitive understanding of biology that occurs in early childhood and discusses later cognitive changes that occur. Young children possess a vitalistic understanding (e.g. breathing brings power to the body) that becomes mechanistic (e.g. an understanding of the heart and lungs) as they mature. Includes statistical and tabular data.…
