The Role of research in educational change by Alfred, Ed Yates( Book )

4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Organized on the premise that present educational research is not meeting the expectations of those responsible for educational policies and practices, this book reflects the thinking of seventeen eminent educationalists who have critically examined the existing arrangements for organizing and carrying out research and have offered recommendations for making it a more effective instrument of educational change and reform. The first section of the book summarizes the papers and discussion at the conference. The structural aspects of educational research, the recruitment and training of staff, the techniques employed in the dissemination of research findings and the processes involved in educational change are discussed in this section. The conclusion is that if research is to become an effective instrument of educational reform, it must be accepted by all concerned as an integral part of educational process. The second part contains accounts of all ways in which educational research is organized in the fourteen countries represented at the conference: Belgium, Canada, Chile, England, France, the Federal Republic of Germany, Japan, Lebanon, Scotland, Sweden, Thailand, United States, ussr, and Zambia. A bibliography follows this section. (Fdi)

This document is the report of a conference attended by an international group of specialists in mathematics and learning. It was convened by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization Institute for Education. The general objective of the conference was to examine problems concerning mathematics reform in the primary schools. Accordingly, the participants were drawn mostly from those specialists who had been involved in reform activities at either the primary or the secondary level. The material in this report is presented in three sections. These are devoted, respectively, to an analysis of the general discussions that took place at the conference, to an account of the components of reform--consisting of contributions made by four discussion groups and a paper prepared by a participant--and, finally, to the national reports submitted by representatives of projects taking place in various countries.

Foreign languages in primary education: the teaching of foreign or second languages to younger children by H. H Stern( Book )

11 editions published between 1963 and 1976 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report of an international conference of language teaching experts held under the auspices of the unesco institute of education in hamburg, Germany, April 9-14, 1962, reviews the whole problem of second language learning at the primary stage of education, and identifies the pertinent, related fields in need of further research. Following a brief discussion of arguments for early second language learning, it surveys extensively the results of practical experience and physiological and psycho-educational research that strengthen the argument for an early start. In the final section of general recommendations for introducing a language in primary schools, are discussions of such problems as policy and planning needs, teacher and student requirements, and course content, methodology, materials, continuity, and cost. Also noted there, for those undertaking research, are the consideration of variables in learning situations, the need for theoretical background from related disciplines, and a list of specific problems. The four appendixes that precede an extensive bibliography contain a list of participants, a summary of primary school language teaching, a case study of bilingualism, and notes on documentation and reports. This document is available for $2.50 from the unesco publications center, 317 east 34 street, New York City, New York, 10016. (ab)
