Another study conducted by Clements and colleagues (1999) concludes that children’s rectangle recognition levels are lower than the other shapes. In a study conducted in Turkey by Kesicioglu and colleagues (2011b) similar findings are presented and it is observed that pre-school children made mistakes while recognizing the triangle, square, rectangle and circle shapes and their distractors. The aim of pre-school education is to support all development fields of a child. Computers are symbols of modern technology. Children need to have early experience with the developing tool (Coskun, 1990). It must be provided that the child learns within the game via computers. Also it is an attractive tool for the child. One way of developing mathematical knowledge is through usage of appropriate technology. The child’s interaction with computer leads to positive results while learning geometrical shapes concept (Dwyer, 2002). The child obtains different shapes and results on the screen by using certain keys of the computer. For instance, finding two similar shapes and inserting one shape into another are games for the child; however, he learns to differentiate different geometrical shapes at that moment (Arıcı and Demir, 2009). An activity in Building Blocks software aiming to improve mathematical skills of children enables children to draw pictures by using special tools related to geometry. Via this software, awareness levels of children about geometrical shapes are enhanced (Clements, 2001). In a similar study completed by Kesicioglu (2011a) computer use has important effects on children’s learning geometrical shapes, eliminating misconceptions and permanency of the knowledge.

As for analysis of participants’ perceptions on stressors at work, they complained about stressors related to working conditions, salary and social facilities of college, work itself, management and supervision, formal and informal relations with colleagues and students and education policies of government and college. In the stressors participants complained about, workload was in the first rank, e-mails to answer second, working with large number of students third, insufficient physical conditions fourth, meetings without agenda and planning and changing profile of students and generation fifth. These findings are parallel with some studies done on stress in education sector. For instance, Corcoran, Walker, and White’s (1988) found that overcrowded classrooms and heavy teacher workloads created stressful working conditions for teachers and caused absenteeism. Pithers and Soden (1998) also found that heavy workload, lack of resources and lack of time were certainly common sources of occupational stress for both the Scottish and Australian vocational teachers. Additionally, Gunbayi (2009) found that the things which were stressful for academic staff were workload, lack of administrative support and unpredictability. A more surprising finding was related to national education policy and the lack of teachers from different origins in Belgium which was another source of stress as PDE stated:“And especially education for instance we see that lots of people of foreign origin they become lawyers, they become politicians, they become economists but not teachers. Not teachers. That’s something to do with language. Teacher training is very strict on the knowledge of Dutch Language because you have to learn the language.” As PDE stated, that is not good when only Flemish origin boys and girls become teachers; they will have difficulty to teach students from different origins.

New Trends in Higher Education in the Globalizing World: STEM in Teacher Education

New Trends in Higher Education in the Globalizing World: STEM in Teacher Education

Abstract One of the main objectives of education, which raises individuals that the society needs, is to resource labor force that will provide the development of the society by maintaining the economic, social, scientific and technological advances. Many countries that aspire to have an advanced economy and technology aim to build a society that is advanced at Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and have sustainable development in these fields, and this has been one of the main educational strategies of those countries. STEM education has a strategic importance for our country to maintain the competitive power on international scale. This research aims to conduct a needs analysis towards the curricular design of STEM education to be proposed for the undergraduate programs of science education at education faculties. The study holds a descriptive model and qualitative methods were used. The study group consists of 12 faculty from Science, Mathematics, Computer and Instructional Technologies at Faculty of Education, and from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering at Gazi University; 15 science teachers who work at the schools which have different socio-economic levels in Ankara, and 42 sophomore students who study at the Department of Science Education at Gazi University Faculty of Education. Content analysis was used as the data analysis method. Findings of the study reveal that there are no studies conducted to integrate different fields into teacher education programs, there are no courses related to STEM education integrated into the curriculum, and the knowledge and skills pre-service teachers should gain to implement this approach in their professional teaching career do not exist in the curriculum. In addition, it was found that most of the teachers believe teacher collaboration; they associate their courses mostly with mathematics and information technologies. Likewise, it was identified that the main reason behind why the teachers cannot teach through interdisciplinary approach is due to teacher related reasons. Concerning the pre-service education, The Ministry of National Education and education faculties should work collaboratively, determine the teacher competencies and try to develop undergraduate

New Trends in T Teaching

New Trends in T Teaching

Ten years ago e-learning was almost synonymous with distance learning, and e-learning was definitely contrasted with face-to-face learning and teaching. Since then, however, the two have come together, and on-line tools for teaching and course administration are commonplace right across Higher Education. We (and our students) now access journals on-line, we communicate with our students through e-mail and use web pages in our reference lists.

Emerging Technological Trends in Distance Education

Emerging Technological Trends in Distance Education

open educational resources and online courses have brought a new dimension to the field, which has brought its own impetus. It is therefore necessary to reflect the field of distance education in order to be able to understand and explain new trends, namely, distance education trends. The main purpose of this study is to analyze research articles in this field so as to be able to explore current trends in the field of distance education. This study aims to identify emerging trends in the field of distance education. As can be seen from the above literature, teachers and students in the field of distance education has been using many new technologies. Under developing countries and developing countries face some problems due to the lack of access to modern technology, but with the advent of technology, they also use modern tools and technologies in distance learning. Within the scope of the study, the latest emerging technologies used by students and teachers in distance education are highlighted. As a result, it is clear in the literature and research in this field that with the rapid changes in the technological world of the changing world and distance education have changed by the adoption of new technologies and tools, new technologies and methods are replacing the old traditions Technology at very fast pace. Investigation in this study shows that learners become motivated and active through the use of hybrid learning and social networking. Technology trends in the field of distance education include information and communication technologies, hybrid learning, asynchronous and synchronous media, learning management systems, social networks, mobile learning, digital libraries and the World Wide Web. Technology facilitates efficient and efficient use of distance learning processes. The research shows that the emerging technology trends of distance education play an effective role in the process of teaching and learning (Harries, 2001; Leach, 2002; Cetron, Dede, 2003; Graham, 2005; Natarajan, 2005; Yousay, 2007;Murali, 2009; Gillani, 2012; Noreen, 2013; Ozmen, 2014).

New Trends in Internet Marketing

New Trends in Internet Marketing

The marketing strategy in e-commerce is a complex job that implies that all activities by communication channels are directed to building a company and product only. This is achieved by the quality of the product being offered and providing information that is true, accurate, and describes in detail what users should be aware of in the product, the company and the conditions under which the product will deliver optimal results. This ensures that customers are satisfied. The acquisition of new users represents an investment in marketing campaigns. The goal is to reach as many interested users as possible (targeted campaigns). Marketing via the Internet is a good communication channel, but it has one limit, which is that not all users of mobile devices can access the Internet from anywhere. This deficiency can be overcome by a combination of technologies that are applied on the Internet, the real environment and mobile services. The basic task of the marketing strategy in e-commerce is to get in touch with the users, to communicate to them and to focus on the channels through which they will obtain a product or service.

New Trends in Economic Globalization

New Trends in Economic Globalization

Relocation subsequently led to unprecedented growth of global production. Transnational corporations do not belong anymore to a single nation. For example, the relocation of the Coca-Cola business, a global image of refreshments, increased significantly the production, without registering as well sustained rhythms in the international trade. The mentioned company’s management appreciated that it is more efficiently to create production centres in the consuming country than to export the finished product, as it was happening in the past, when the distribution prices increased significantly due to the transport costs. The same trends, of branches location in other countries, are available for corporations in all industries.

But even for full-time students, one-year prices at “two-year” and “four-year” institutions may not be adequate indicators of the cost to students of pursuing postsecondary certificates and degrees. Among students who began their studies full time at a four-year institution in 2005, 39% had completed bachelor’s degrees at their first institution after four years and 59% had completed after six years. In other words, about one-third of bachelor’s degree recipients took longer than four years to complete their degrees. Not all of these students paid more than four years of full-time tuition — they may have taken time off or enrolled part time for at least a semester. But for many of those who took longer than four years to earn their degrees, tuition and fees (before accounting for grant aid) were likely to be considerably more than four times the one-year price. Taking more than two years to earn an associate degree or more than four years to earn a bachelor’s degree has financial implications beyond tuition and fee expenses. Forgone earnings from reduced participation in the labor force constitute the largest portion of the cost of college for most students. The more quickly students earn their degrees, the more time they have to earn college-level wages and reap the financial benefits of postsecondary education. Bachelor’s degree recipients between the ages of 25 and 34, for example, had median earnings 71% ($17,614) higher than those with high school diplomas in 2013 (U.S. Census Bureau, 2013 Income Data, Table PINC-03).

sections of industry, mainly for analysis and performance prediction (virtual prototyping). Optimal design calls for new cost-effective algorithms to reduce the number of necessary function evaluations and thus avoid excessive computation times. Optimisation in electromagnetics has recently become fashionable again and an area of very active research, as demonstrated by a vast number of new publications and even existence of dedicated conferences [32]. This review reflects on the state of the art and highlights new trends. Surrogate modelling, kriging assisted methods and design sensitivity seem to dominate the current way of thinking of researchers around the world.

some universities into online learning environments (Brown, 2015). Personalizing learning has been attempted with various technologies as diverse as learning management systems, blogs and wikis, through to virtual reality. To use technologies in meaningful ways in teaching and learning requires an understanding of the purposes for doing so; the relationships between technologies; students’ learning styles; and students’ preferences for instructional strategies, such as blended and online learning. Alongside of the increasing use of technologies in teaching and learning, there is also a growing call by bureaucrats and politicians in particular, to use data and assessments to improve policies and practices in schools and higher education. The recording and analysis of data, often supported with the use of technologies, is known as ‘data-driven decision making’ and ‘evidence-based planning’. There is little empirical research however, about the impact of data-driven decision-making, albeit that currently, research on data use in education tends to fall into the following three groups:

Shifting trends in higher education funding

Shifting trends in higher education funding

like the United Kingdom that are of the opinion that the individual should make a greater contribution towards the costs of higher education, it becomes clear that higher education cannot be seen as a pure public good. The higher return to money invested in primary education relative to higher education makes it more profitable for countries to invest more in primary education. In the 1990s this was also accompanied by lower donor funding for higher education. This led to more countries introducing or increasing tuition fees (Woodhall, 2008: 20). It seems as though individuals will in future contribute to a greater extent towards their own higher educational costs. It is important to remember that the finances for higher education originate from only four sources. With direct subsidies to higher education institutions it is the taxpayers that finance higher education. With cost-sharing the other parties involved must contribute as well. This includes students that have to pay higher tuition fees or the parents of students that financially support their children. In the last instance higher education institutions also receive philanthropic funding (the so called third income stream). If government contributions to higher education decrease it means that the shortfall must be financed by one of the last mentioned three sources.

Age of Education Infrastructure: Recent Trends

Age of Education Infrastructure: Recent Trends

This decline occurred while universities hosted a double cohort of secondary school students resulting from the elimination of the Ontario Academic Credit year. Combined with events in Quebec, this rapid increase in university investment in Ontario has contributed to the overall decline in the average age of education infrastructure in Canada. The average age of elementary and secondary schools in Ontario declined 1.4 years from 2000 to 2008. This reduction contributed significantly to lowering the average age of education infrastructures in that province. The stock of elementary and secondary schools also increased 1.3% a year on average from 2000 and 2008. This occurred despite declining numbers of children aged 5 to 9 in the province during this period.

Publication Trends in Physics Education: A Bibliometric study

A publication trend in Physics Education by employing bibliometric analysis leads the researchers to describe current scientific movement. This paper tries to answer “What do Physics education scientists concentrate in their publications?” by analyzing the productivity and development of publications on the subject category of Physics Education in the period 1980–2013. The Web of Science databases in the research areas of “EDUCATION - EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH” was used to extract the publication trends. The study involves 1360 publications, including 840 articles, 503 proceedings paper, 22 reviews, 7 editorial material, 6 Book review, and one Biographical item. Number of publications with “Physical Education” in topic increased from 0.14 % (n = 2) in 1980 to 16.54 % (n = 225) in 2011. Total number of receiving citations is 8071, with approximately citations per papers of 5.93. The results show the publication and citations in Physic Education has increased dramatically while the Malaysian share is well ranked.
