Using technology to support education reform by Barbara Means( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many critics of American education see technology as an important tool in bringing about the kind of revolutionary changes called for in new reform efforts. Consequently, support for the use of technology to promote fundamental reform appears to be reaching a new high. Following an introduction describing elements of school reform, Chapter 2 describes how technology can support the kinds of student learning described in a model of reform presented in Chapter 1. Chapter 3 describes the ways that technology can support student learning as defined by education reformers, and Chapter 4 describes ways in which technology can support teacher efforts to promote student learning. Chapter 5 reviews the literature on the effects of technology on student learning outcomes. The final chapter deals with issues of implementation for projects attempting education reform supported by technology. Three tables and two figures summarize information about technology and reform.

Arts education research agenda for the future by Inc., Washington, Dc Pelavin Associates( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document presents the arts education research agenda that emerged from a national conference on arts education. The conference was attended by key researchers in each of the arts education disciplines, arts educators, artists and artist teachers, representatives of arts institutions and organizations, and persons from groups and organizations that influence the priorities, development, and conduct of research efforts. The goals of the agenda are: (1) to focus the attention of arts educators, researchers, and the broader community on basic issues in arts education that can improve teaching and learning in the arts; (2) to identify what arts educators view as priorities, given limited resources; (3) to provide a conceptual framework and overall philosophy for inquiry in the field of arts education, as other disciplines are doing with their respective research agendas; and (4) to connect theory and practice, and to make research an agent of improvement in teaching and learning. The agenda was developed to articulate the many unanswered questions in three main areas of arts education: (1) curriculum and instruction; (2) assessment and evaluation; and (3) teacher education and preparation. The document consists of five parts plus notes, a bibliography, and an appendix of conference participants. The first section is an introduction of this field generated document, discussing trends in U.S. education that influence arts education. The second chapter on curriculum and instruction discusses what should be taught and how. The third chapter is on assessment, and the fourth on teacher education and preparation. The last chapter is on continued collaboration. (Dk)

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines possible national indicators for learning outcomes in the individual disciplines of higher education. It consists of versions of five project final reports, each underscoring a distinct approach to developing a model in the context of a specific discipline. Each model applies, however, to several similar disciplines. Stressed in all the models are creative approaches to student assessment which include both criterion-referenced and norm-referenced information. Papers have the following titles and authors: "Models for Developing Computer-Based Indicators of College Student Learning in Computer Science" (Jerilee Grandy); "a Model for Assessing Undergraduate Learning in Mechanical Engineering" (Jonathan Warren); "Model Indicators of Student Learning in Undergraduate Biology" (Gary Peterson and Patricia Hayward); "a Study of Indicators of College Student Learning in Physics" (James Terwilliger, J. Woods Halley, and Patricia Heller); "Model Indicators of Undergraduate Learning in Chemistry" (George Bodner). Papers are followed by references, and appendixes, which detail model recommendations and criteria. (Db)

Parents' literacy and their children's success in school : recent research, promising practices, and research implications by L. Ann Benjamin( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines recent research and program developments designed to improve the education of children by improving the literacy skills of their parents, particularly their mothers, who did not graduate from high school. Traditional research has revealed that more highly educated mothers have greater success in providing their children with the cognitive language skills that contribute to early success in school than less well-educated mothers. A growing body of recent research, however, suggests that the way parents raise their children may be more important than the parents' occupation, income, or educational level. During the past decade there has been growing interest in the notion that educationally disadvantaged parents and children are a learning unit, and that family and intergenerational literacy programs can provide parents with needed support in their role as first teachers. Programs which seek to improve parents' literacy and other skills include Even Start, the Kenan Trust Family Literacy Model, and the Intergenerational Literacy Action Research Project. Two major implications from the research on the influence of parental literacy are: (1) low-literate parents, particularly mothers, are more likely to exert a positive influence on their children's academic achievement when they are able to enhance their own literacy skills than when they are unable to do so; and (2) intervention programs should be designed to enable family members to construct useful meanings and definitions of literacy. Contains a list of 18 selected readings. (MDM)
