SAE TEACHING USING SIMULATIONS

The increasing interest in applying small area estimation methods urges the needs for training in small area estimation. To better understand the behaviour of small area estimators in practice, simulations are a feasible way for evaluating and teaching properties of the estimators of interest. By designing such simulation studies, students gain a deeper understanding of small area estimation methods. Thus, we encourage to use appropriate simulations as an additional interactive tool in teaching

What do teachers and leaders have to say about co-teaching in flexible learning spaces?

Schools in New Zealand and parts of Australia are rapidly transitioning from traditional classrooms to coteaching in flexible learning spaces provisioned for 50 to 180 children and two to six teachers in a single space. In New Zealand, this transition is driven by the Ministry of Education who have specific guidelines for designing new schools and re-builds. School leaders and teachers must reconceptualise teaching and learning from private autonomous learning environments to co-teaching in

Collaborative teaching in flexible learning spaces: Capabilities of beginning teachers

Increasingly, New Zealand primary and intermediate schools are adopting the concept of flexible learning spaces and promoting team teaching approaches. Such open spaces and pedagogy can be challenging for even experienced teachers to adapt to. Is it realistic, therefore, to expect novices to work successfully in these challenging spaces from the onset of their teaching careers? Initial Teacher Education (ITE) programmes in New Zealand equip graduates with the knowledge and skills to plan, teach

Development of a computer-based simple pendulum experiment set for teaching and learning physics

Introduction Physics is one of the most fundamental scientific disciplines, and it forms the core of scientific development (Hartmann and Mittelstrass, 2002). Physics helps students to understand natural phenomena through observations, measurements, mathematics, and experiments (Falkenburg, 2011). However, the conventional teaching methods that include delivering traditional lectures in front of the passive students are often tedious and very difficult for the students to understand physics

After a series of explorations, it is found that the teaching mode, which is based on classroom teaching and the network teaching is supplemented, is a new model in line with the requirements of the times. The network teaching platform of the ideological and political course has emerged as a new part of the network teaching.

Path planning of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is an optimal problem in the complex combat field environment. Teaching-Learning-Based Optimization (TLBO) algorithm is presented under the inspiration of the teaching-learning behavior in a classroom. In this paper, this algorithm is applied to design a path by the search angle and distance, by which a better path at higher convergence speed and shorter route can be found. Finally experimental comparison results show that TLBO algorithm is a

These environments, celebrated by some for the “transformational” educational opportunities they may provide, also raise questions about whether the anticipated pedagogical value of these “non-traditional” spaces is based on idealised visions of teaching and learning

The Early Years of Albert Einstein: When viewed through the lens of current theory and research were there signs of giftedness?

Underachievement is commonly seen as a discrepancy between the level at which a student performs and their academic potential. It is a learned behaviour that can be caused by factors both inside and outside the school setting including family and community dynamics, school curriculum and teaching methods, and personality traits. The identification of underachieving gifted students is closely linked to the identification of giftedness itself and talented students can be marginalised if a

The model is based on four main criteria which have impact both on the teaching process and on the adaptation costs. The said criteria comprise reverberation time, speech transmission index STI, financial cost of the adaptation and non-economic
