We present an analysis of A-level subject choices at around age 16 for a cohort of students in English schools who completed their studies in 2014. We examined both the National Pupil Database and a unique rich dataset on the subject preferences and subsequent choices between the ages of 16 and 18 (i.e. GCSE and A-level). We found substantive…

By providing descriptive evidence from an ethnographic study at three Singaporean primary schools, this paper reveals how participants in children's education perceive and account for the relations they shape between home and school.

Yin, Ming; Yeakey, Carol Camp – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
In 2016, approximately 5 million students, about 2% of global tertiary enrolments, studied abroad. As globalisation of education advances, tertiary student mobility is an important channel through which highly skilled immigrants arrive and work in different nation states. Informed by the multidisciplinary internationalisation frameworks, this…

Graham, Archie; MacDougall, Lindsay; Robson, Dean; Mtika, Peter – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
The complexity of practicum in initial teacher education, in terms of the range of diverse social relations and differing school contexts, provides a challenge for teacher educators worldwide, aiming to guide and shape opportunities for student teachers learning to teach. This challenge is further compounded by societal problems linked to child…

Fransson, G.; Holmberg, J.; Lindberg, O. J.; Olofsson, A. D. – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
The digitalisation of educational contexts has changed the practice of teaching and learning. In this, teachers have a key role in enacting digital technologies for this purpose and have different opportunities to do so. This article explores how digitalisation can affect teachers by focusing on: (a) how teachers manage to capitalise on…

Woods, Kevin; McCaldin, Tamsin; Hipkiss, Amanda; Tyrrell, Beverley; Dawes, Megan – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
This paper presents a novel explanation for the continued absence of a children's rights strategy within high-stakes educational assessment with reference to the competing purposes of high-stakes assessments and group-based constructions of fairness in assessment. We provide an original critique of group-based perspectives on the validity of…

This paper first provides a brief overview of the history and current usage of the concept of competence in academic research, and then undertakes a critical discussion of how the term is currently used in educational policy. The running example used throughout the paper is competence in foreign language learning. The PISA study is discussed to…

Brennan, John; Cochrane, Allan – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
Universities are necessarily implicated in processes of globalisation and neoliberalisation. But this also finds an expression in the ways that they operate in the cities in which they are located. They are always located "in" place, but the question remains whether they can be understood to be of the places in which they find…

Poyntz, Stuart R.; Coles, Rebecca; Fitzsimmons-Frey, Heather; Bains, Alysha; Sefton-Green, Julian; Hoechsmann, Michael – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
The 'learning city' contains a range of non-formal learning economies. In recent years researchers have focused on, what has been termed, the non-formal arts learning sector, to document best practices, the emergence of new literacies and/or cultural practices, and to highlight interventions that support otherwise marginalised and underserved…

Robin, Enora; Chazal, Clémentine; Acuto, Michele; Carrero, Rocio – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
Scholarly research has shown the importance of moments of crisis, in particular the direct aftermath of urban crises, as opportunities to learn about urban vulnerabilities. However, if it is widely assumed that learning is important, in particular for resilience-building, we still know very little about how such learning occurs in a moment of…

Lido, Catherine; Reid, Kate; Osborne, Michael – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
Despite UNESCO's Learning Cities agenda, which argues for the mobilisation of resources to promote education across all sectors and environments, there is little evaluative research on Learning City engagement which is both naturalistic and empirically rigorous. The research on informal adult learning in urban contexts is particularly sparse. This…

Morrison, Andrew; Erstad, Ola; Liestøl, Gunnar; Pinfold, Nicholas; Snaddon, Bruce; Hemmersam, Peter; Grant-Broom, Andrea – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
In this article we explore the dynamic between the pedagogical and the urban, attending to 'agentive urban learning'. By this we mean processes by which young people build agency in the urban context, in using the resources of the city to develop their own agency, and of developing agency to act within the city. By agency, we refer to the capacity…

Facer, Keri; Buchczyk, Magdalena – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
Cities around the world are increasingly developing city-wide lifelong learning strategies to promote individual and civic adaptation to major economic, technological, and environmental challenges. Such initiatives, however, have not yet received commensurate research attention from education researchers and it is not yet clear that we have the…

Manchester, Helen; Cope, Gillian – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
The international Smart Cities and the Learning Cities movements are not often linked. However, there are learning questions at stake here. Smart city agendas are often criticised as being technocratic and instrumental, prioritising market-led solutions to urban issues. Such criticism has led to moves to place the citizen at the centre of these…
