Abstract

This book presents the outcomes of four years of educational research in the EU-supported project called ROLE (Responsive Online Learning Environments). ROLE technology is centered around the concept of self-regulated learning that creates responsible learners, who are capable of critical thinking and able to plan their own learning processes. ROLE allows learners to independently search for appropriate learning resources and then reflect on their own learning process and progress. To accomplish this, ROLE´s main objective is to support the development of open personal learning environments (PLEs). ROLE provides a framework consisting of “enabler spaces” on the one hand and tools, content, and services on the other. Utilizing this framework, learners are invited to create their own controlled and preferred learning environments to trigger and motivate self-regulated learning.Authors of this book are researchers, developers and teachers who have worked in the ROLE project and belong to the ROLE partner consortium consisting of 16 internationally renowned research institutions, including those from 6 EU countries and China. Chapters include numerous practical tutorials to guide the reader in creating innovative and useful learning widgets and present the best practices for the development of PLEs.

Abstract

The experience of engaging with art and history has been utterly transformed by information and communications technology in recent decades. We now have virtual, mediated access to countless heritage collections and assemblages of artworks, which we intuitively browse and navigate in a way that wasn't possible until very recently. This collection of essays takes up the question of the cultural meaning of the information and communications technology that makes these new engagements possible, asking questions like: How should we theorise the sensory experience of art and heritage? What does information technology mean for the authority and ownership of heritage?

Abstract

This book records the state of the art in research on mathematics-related affect. It discusses the concepts and theories of mathematics-related affect along the lines of three dimensions. The first dimension identifies three broad categories of affect: motivation, emotions, and beliefs. The book contains one chapter on motivation, including discussions on how emotions and beliefs relate to motivation. There are two chapters that focus on beliefs and a chapter on attitude which cross-cuts through all these categories. The second dimension covers a rapidly fluctuating state to a more stable trait. All chapters in the book focus on trait-type affect and the chapter on motivation discusses both these dimensions. The third dimension regards the three main levels of theorizing: physiological (embodied), psychological (individual) and social. All chapters reflect that mathematics-related affect has mainly been studied using psychological theories.

Abstract

The educational imagination is the capacity to think critically beyond our located, daily experiences of education. It breaks away from the immediacy of personal understanding by placing education within wider, deeper and longer contexts. Boundaries of the Educational Imagination develops the educational imagination by answering six questions: What happens when we expand continuously outwards from one school to all the schools of the world? What happens if we go inside a school and explore how its material equipment has changed over the past 300 years? What is the smallest educational unit in our brain and how does it allow an almost infinite expansion of knowledge? What is the highest level of individual development we can teach students to aspire towards? What role does education play in a world that is producing more and more complex knowledge increasingly quickly? How do small knowledge elements combine to produce increasingly complex knowledge forms? Each question goes on a journey towards limit points in education so that educational processes can be placed within a bigger framework that allows new possibilities, fresh options and more critical engagement. These questions are then pulled together into a structuring framework enabling the reader to grasp how this complex subject works.

Abstract

This book offers insights and perspectives from a study of “Cultural Encounters in Intervention Against Violence” (CEINAV) in four EU-countries. Seeking a deeper understanding of the underpinnings of intervention practices in Germany, Portugal, Slovenia and the United Kingdom, the team explored variations in institutional structures and traditions of law, policing, and social welfare. Theories of structural inequality and ethics are discussed and translated into practice.

Abstract

Durch Instrumente wie PISA erlangte und erhielt die OECD die Autorität, über Erfolg und Scheitern nationalstaatlicher Bildungspolitiken zu urteilen. Regula Bürgi beleuchtet aus historischer Perspektive die Denkstile und Netzwerke, mittels derer diese internationale – vornehmlich wirtschaftspolitische – Organisation zu einer Bildungsexpertin avancieren konnte. Basierend auf vielfältigem Quellenmaterial dringt die Autorin in das Räderwerk der Organisation vor und identifiziert Schlüsseleigenschaften des OECD-Erfolgs.; Instruments such as PISA have given OECD the authority to judge relative successes and failures of national education policies. Regula Bürgi examines from an historical perspective the thinking styles and networks by means of which this international - primarily economic-political - organization could advance to become an expert in the field of education. Based on diverse source materials, the author penetrates the architecture of the organization and identifies key characteristics of OECD's success.

Abstract

This book draws together both: theory and practice on minority/migrant women and gendered violence. The interplay of gender, ethnicity, religion, class, generation and sexuality in shaping the lives, experiences and choices of minority/migrant women affected by violence has not always been adequately theorised within much of the existing writing on violence against women. Feminist theory, especially the insights provided by the concept of intersectionality, are central to the editors’ conceptual frameworks.

Abstract

In the field of comparative education without a strong theory-driven approach it is hard to go beyond merely listing the similarities and differences that make it possible to create countless rankings, but reveals little about specific and shared developmental processes between education systems. This book introduces a new theoretical framework characterised as Comparative Analytics of Dynamics in Education Politics (CADEP) as an ambitious response to this political, intellectual and scientific problem.

Abstract

Die Heime der Brüdergemeinde Korntal und Wilhelmsdorf sind ein weiteres „Fallbeispiel“ für die Heimwirklichkeit in den ersten Jahrzehnten der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Diese war für viele Kinder gekennzeichnet durch eine strenge religiöse und gewaltförmige Erziehung, die in der Tradition der autoritären Fürsorgeerziehung steht. Die Gespräche mit über 100 ehemaligen Heimkindern und die Analyse von Akten zeigen die Formen und Ausmaße von physischer, sexualisierter und psychischer Gewalt, die Kinder erlitten haben.
