A new study published in the
British Journal of Educational Technology has identified the different needs of students across primary, middle, and high school related to online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
For the study, investigators surveyed 1,170,769 Chinese students from the Guangdong Province of China.
Based on their findings, the researchers recommend that educational authorities and schools provide sufficient technical support to help students overcome potential internet and technical problems, and customize the delivery of online learning tools for students in different school years.
"Utilizing data from a large sample, we identify that student requirements of online learning are not homogeneous. For young children, there is a need for guidance from teachers and parents. In contrast, older students require opportunities to collaborate," said lead author Lixiang Yan, of the Centre for Learning Analytics at Monash University, in Australia. "Our study also showed an overwhelming use of smartphones over other devices by all age groups. This finding has direct implications for the design of online courses in K12 education; however, this can potentially pose a significant limitation for an effective learning experience."

Can twitter help improve dental education?

Card image cap


 E-Mail
An analysis of published studies indicates that Twitter may be a useful learning tool in dental education.
The analysis, which is published in the
Journal of Dental Education, included 7 studies. Studies indicated that the real-time question and answer sessions using Twitter work well in an educational setting. Also, the semi-anonymous interactions on Twitter can be beneficial for students unwilling to speak in front of their peers. Twitter can also make lectures more engaging, and it can be used to ask questions that assess student comprehension.
The investigators noted that there are significant barriers to Twitter's use in dental education, however, including privacy and concerns about professionalism.

From cleaner to PhD graduate: Mervyn Coetzee overcame mocking and poverty

He admits he was not a brilliant student “by any means”.
When he failed his mid-year exams in Grade 10, he wanted to drop out of school but his older brother intervened, saying one of the family had to complete matric.
He managed to complete school in 1984.
Four years later, a girlfriend encouraged him to apply to study at UWC but his application was rejected.
“This is where the story changed,” he said.
A chance encounter with a peer facilitator, Niel van den Heever from Namaqualand, created an opportunity for further education at UWC, but first he had to secure the funding he needed to register. 

Vermont students protest handling of sex assault cases


Vermont students protest handling of sex assault cases
May 4, 2021 GMT
More than 1,000 University of Vermont students marched across campus to protest the school’s handling of sexual assault cases and to support survivors.
The walkout on Monday was sparked by an Instagram post last week by a student about an alleged sexual assault and her experience with UVM’s Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity office, which investigates cases of sexual misconduct. The walk-out led to the front of the Waterman building, where she and a number of students spoke.
“I’ve heard countless me-toos shouted into the dark because our university doesn’t give a damn about what their students have gone through or the safety of their students,” said UVM senior Sydney Ovitt, who was not the student who posted on Instagram. “It is (UVM’s) job to keep us safe, it is their job to hold students accountable.”

UDS Dean Of Education Slams Wesley Girls SHS Management


 
Dean of the Faculty of Education, University for Development Studies (UDS), Dr Ibrahim Mohammed Gunu has stated that Wesley Girls Senior High School management’s attempted ban on Ramadan activities there was in contravention of efforts aimed at building tolerance and integrated communities.
He condemned the decision that triggered widespread criticisms and advised like-minded school authorities to avoid it.
According to him, the sensitive nature of this issue required that the Ghana Education Service (GES) and management of the school should be circumspect about their utterances and public statements.
“Historically, some school authorities have been poor at tolerating practices of other faiths. Ghanaians need to do away with tendencies that continue to perpetuate division and sectarianism.”
