Abstract

Cet ouvrage s'intéresse à un aspect encore peu connu de l'histoire de l'éducation en France au XIXe siècle. En s'inscrivant dans le récent « tournant transnational » de la recherche historique, il examine le vaste système d’échanges, de circulations et d’emprunts par-delà les frontières qui accompagnent la mise en place du système scolaire moderne entre 1870 et 1914. Son ambition est de montrer comment l’école républicaine, souvent pensée comme un élément de l’identité nationale et comme un instrument de nationalisation de la société française, s’est largement construite en référence à des exemples et modèles étrangers. Le livre adopte une perspective de recherche originale qui remet en cause les frontières classiques de l’analyse historique, souvent cloisonnée à la seule sphère nationale, et permet ainsi de placer les débats scolaires hexagonaux dans les circuits européens et mondiaux des idées pédagogiques. Couverture : Single desks proposés par les maisons de fournitures scolaires Whitecomb (Boston) et Thurnstout (Providence).

Abstract

Teaching Mathematics is nothing less than a mathematical manifesto. Arising in response to a limited National Curriculum, and engaged with secondary schooling for those aged 11 ̶ 14 (Key Stage 3) in particular, this handbook for teachers will help them broaden and enrich their students’ mathematical education. It avoids specifying how to teach, and focuses instead on the central principles and concepts that need to be borne in mind by all teachers and textbook authors—but which are little appreciated in the UK at present.This study is aimed at anyone who would like to think more deeply about the discipline of ‘elementary mathematics’, in England and Wales and anywhere else. By analysing and supplementing the current curriculum, Teaching Mathematics provides food for thought for all those involved in school mathematics, whether as aspiring teachers or as experienced professionals. It challenges us all to reflect upon what it is that makes secondary school mathematics educationally, culturally, and socially important.

Abstract

In OECD countries the average expenditure on primary and secondary education institutions is about 3.5% of GDP. The investment in education has large implications for economic development and the proper functioning of democratic institutions, as well as overall well-being. However, clear consensus and guidance on which system leads to the best educational outcomes is lacking. This volume describes the resource allocation for compulsory and special needs education for a selection of well-performing countries and regions on PISA tests. By studying the funding systems in well-performing countries and regions the authors identify the elements in the respective funding systems that are associated with best outcomes and have the ideal characteristics to pursue particular goals of education systems such as equity and efficiency. The funding methods of primary and secondary education as well as special needs education are covered.

Abstract

The book “Modern classrooms. New perspectives on the reform of secondary education at the time of the JAE” aims to provide a renewed focus on the development of secondary education in Spanish society of the first third of the 20th century, focusing attention on reforms and innovations promoted by the Junta para Ampliación de Estudios e Investigaciones científicas (Board for Advanced Studies and Scientific Research) to improve the quality of that education level. The nine contributions in the work offer new knowledge about two important aspects of these reforms and innovations. On the one hand, new information about the renewing work of a large group of professors who introduced innovations in teaching practice of subjects such as natural history, geography, psychology, and language and literature. On the other hand, several case studies are presented to publicize the considerable effort made by the Spanish Second Republic to improve the quality of secondary education and increase decisively schooling rates by opening their classrooms to the women. In this multifaceted work have come together historians of science and education with the aim of helping better understand the Spanish public educational system and the history of their secondary education, which for too long has been the "poor cousin" of the historical-educational research. = El libro Aulas modernas. Nuevas perspectivas sobre las reformas de la enseñanza secundaria en la época de la JAE pretende ofrecer un renovado enfoque sobre el desarrollo de la enseñanza secundaria en la sociedad española del primer tercio del siglo XX, concentrando su atención en las reformas e innovaciones promovidas por la Junta para Ampliación de Estudios e Investigaciones Científicas para mejorar la calidad de ese nivel educativo. Las nueve contribuciones de la obra aportan nuevos conocimientos sobre dos aspectos significativos de esas reformas e innovaciones. Por una parte se ofrece relevante información sobre la labor de un amplio grupo de profesores que introdujeron innovaciones en la práctica docente de asignaturas como las ciencias naturales, la geografía, la psicología, y la lengua y literatura. Por otro lado se presentan diversos análisis de casos para dar a conocer el considerable esfuerzo efectuado por la Segunda República para elevar la calidad de la enseñanza secundaria e incrementar las tasas de escolarización abriendo sus aulas a las mujeres de manera decidida. Esta obra poliédrica, donde han confluido historiadores de la ciencia y de la educación, pretende por tanto ayudar a conocer mejor el sistema educativo público español y la historia de su educación secundaria que durante largo tiempo ha sido el “pariente pobre” de la investigación histórico-educativa.

Abstract

The design for Quest to Learn, an innovative school in New York City that offers a “game-like” approach to learning. Quest to Learn, an innovative school for grades 6 to 12 in New York City, grew out of the idea that gaming and game design offer a promising new paradigm for curriculum and learning. The designers of Quest to Learn developed an approach to learning that draws from what games do best: drop kids into inquiry-based, complex problem spaces that are built to help players understand how they are doing, what they need to work on, and where to go next. Content is not treated as dry information but as a living resource; students are encouraged to interact with the larger world in ways that feel relevant, exciting, and empowering. Quest to Learn opened in the fall of 2009 with 76 sixth graders. In their first semester, these students learned—among other things—to convert fractions into decimals in order to break a piece of code found in a library book; to use atlases and read maps to create a location guide for a reality television series; and to create video tutorials for a hapless group of fictional inventors. This research and development document outlines the learning framework for the school, making the original design available to others in the field. Elements in development include a detailed curriculum map, a budget, and samples of student and teacher handbooks.
