Essay from the year 2011 in the subject History - Africa, Ahmadu Bello University, course: HISTORY, language: English, abstract: One of the neglected themes of the history of Katsina emirate, was the contribution of the Christian Missionaries to the socio-economic development of the emirate. This is true because early attempts by Christian missionaries to introduce Christianity into Katsina emirate were not accorded serious attention. Likewise in the colonial period, when the Missionaries succeeded in establishing their stations in various parts of the emirate their activities were almost overlooked by researchers and writers. This paper appreciates the nature and the significance of the Christian Missionary activities in Katsina emirate in the pre-colonial and colonial periods.

The Wiley Handbook of Global Educational Reform examines educational reform from a global perspective. Comprised of approximately 25 original and specially commissioned essays, which together interrogate educational reform from a critical global and transnational perspective, this volume explores a range of topics and themes that fully investigate global convergences in educational reform policies, ideologies, and practices. The Handbook probes the history, ideology, organization, and institutional foundations of global educational reform movements; actors, institutions, and agendas; and local, national, and global education reform trends. It further examines the “new managerialism” in global educational reform, including the standardization of national systems of educational governance, curriculum, teaching, and learning through the rise of new systems of privatization, accountability, audit, big-data, learning analytics, biometrics, and new technology-driven adaptive learning models. Finally, it takes on the subjective and intersubjective experiential dimensions of the new educational reforms and alternative paths for educational reform tied to the ethical imperative to reimagine education for human flourishing, justice, and equality. An authoritative, definitive volume and the first global take on a subject that is grabbing headlines as well as preoccupying policy makers, scholars, and teachers around the world Edited by distinguished leaders in the field Features contributions from an illustrious list of experts and scholars The Wiley Handbook of Global Educational Reform will be of great interest to scholars and graduate students of education throughout the world as well as the policy makers who can institute change.

This book brings in the focus on the borders between different contexts that need to be crossed, in the processof education.Despite the considerable efforts of various groups of researchers all over the World, it does not seem thattraditional educational psychology has succeeded in illuminating the complex issues involved in the schoolfamilyrelationship. From a methodological perspective, there is no satisfactory explanation of the connectionbetween representations and actual practice in educational contexts.Crossing Boundaries is an invitation to cultural psychology of educational processes to overcome the limitsof existing educational psychology.Eemphasizing social locomotion and the dynamic processes, the book try to capture the ambiguous richnessof the transit from one context to another, of the symbolic perspective that accompanies the dialoguebetween family and school, of practices regulating the interstitial space between these different social systems.How family and school fill, occupy, circulate, avoid or strategically use this space in between? What discourses and practices saturate this Border Zoneand/or cross from one side to the other?Crossing Boundaries gathers contributions with the clear aim of documenting and analysing what happens at points of contact between family cultureand scholastic/educational culture from the perspective of everyday life.This book is in itself an attempt to cross the border between the "theorizing on the borders" (and how "...

The relationship between technological and pedagogical innovation has recently created a new field of research at the crossroads between Psychology, Educational Sciences and Artificial Intelligence: Educational Robotics (ER). Through analysis of the achievable educational goals based on the technological status and specific learning modes of different types of robots, it is possible to define three pedagogical paradigms: learning robotics, learning with robotics, and learning by robotics. In this book we address these three paradigms through three themes: human representations of robots, the acceptance and trust shown when interacting with a humanoid, and learning favored by the development and programming of robots in an educational context. These themes allow the authors to fully explore, define and delimit this novel field of research for future application in educational and social contexts. Finally, the book discusses contributions and limitations which have emerged from different methodologies of research, potential educational applications, and concepts of human–robot interaction for the development of the above paradigms.

Master's Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Law, grade: A, Central European University Budapest (Law Faculty), course: Law of Corporations, language: English, abstract: AbstractThe capital of a company is considered as security for creditors and legal systems provide the framework to safeguard this security. This paper demonstrates overvaluation of non-cash contributions as a risk this security is to be safeguarded from. It outlines what a cmprehensive control system on non-cash contributions looks like and comparatively assesses the laws of the EC, Germany, France, England, and Ethiopia as to the mechanisms they provide to control this form of contribution. The paper shows that the three member states of of the EC have transposed the Community law on the subject of control of non-cashcontributions in a similar fashion and that they converge on a number of areas regarding their approaches to controlling non-cash contributions like definition of valid forms of tnon-cash contributions and the expert valuation , payment and disclosure requirements. The above three legal systems are selected because of their relevance to the Ethiopian law for they are the sources of the latter's Commercial Code. Compared to these legal systems, the control system over non-csh-contributions under the Ethiopian law involves a number of matters that need addressed through amendement of the law.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2017 in the subject History - Asia, grade: 95.0, Westminster College, language: English, abstract: As early as the mid-17th century, Protestant and Catholic/Jesuit missionaries negotiated their way into the secluded empire of China. These first missionaries were largely Portuguese and predominantly Roman Catholic. During this age, many European Empires were beginning to transition from colonial expansion via conversion and missionary work to a more commercial approach.This thesis proposes to answer the following questions: Why and how was French missionary work so important to international relations between France and China? In what ways did this missionary work alter Chinese society? Did the French missionaries pave the way for China's future as a republic, and if so-how? What were the differences between France's Catholic missionaries and France's Protestant missionaries in China? Additionally, how might this missionary work compare to other notable examples, such as Spain's missionary work in South and Central America? It is hoped that this thesis will be able to answer these questions, as well as any others that reveal themselves over the course of study.

Scholars and practitioners in the fields of education and educational psychology have come to agree thatconceptions of learning and teaching, student and teacher motivation, engagement, learning and teachingstrategies, and by implication, student academic achievement and teacher effectiveness are also influencedby a sociocultural context where the schooling process takes place. This raises the question if educationalpsychology theorizing and findings can be adopted to inform and guide teaching and learning in differentcultures. As such, there is a compelling and timely need for educational psychology researchers to harnessadvanced cross-cultural research designs and look at the different key facets of student and teacheracademic careers from a cross-cultural perspective. Dennis McInerney is one of the key pioneering figuresin cross-cultural educational psychology and has also edited a book series on Research on SocioculturalInfluences on Motivation and Learning (Information Age Publishing). His ideas and research have inspiredmany to examine the role of sociocultural context in motivation and learning.

Grace Woodbridge Roys suffered from bi-polar disease before it was well understood. Her daughter feared that her children would also suffer mental illness. This annotation of Grace's diary opens the early 1900s missionary world in China and the personality of Grace to the reader. In December 1910 Grace married Harvey Curtis Roys, who was teaching physics at Kiang Nan government school in Nanking, under the sponsorship of the YMCA. Grace had had a mental breakdown weeks earlier when her missionary father forbade the marriage. The diary records their early married life, the births of their first two children, their social life with other missionaries in China, many of whom made major contributions to Nanking life and education: medical doctors and nurses, theology professors, agricultural innovators, and founders of universities, hospitals, nursing schools, and schools for young Chinese women and men. Included is their experience evacuating during the Sun Yat-sen Revolution of 1911. Well-known missionaries of that time came to tea and taught at the Hillcrest School that the mothers began for foreign children. The Nanyang Exposition took place in 1910, too, as China was in the throes of entering the modern era, with trains, electricity, telegraphs, and a new interest in democracy.""This thoroughly annotated five-year diary, including contemporary accounts of the retreat colony Kuling and schools in Nanking, provides rich and illuminating primary documentation toward ...

This volume focuses on the important relationship between racial and ethnic identity andrequirements for Latino/a educational leaders today. As the racial and ethnic diversity ofcommunities continues to rise, there is an increasing need for the diversification of schoolleaders who can improve student success, retention, engagement, and successful academicachievement. This entails a deeper understanding about the role/definitions of leadership among communities ofcolor, leadership succession, the importance of gender/ethnic differences, as well as methods for recruitment,retention and development of school administrators and other school leaders of color in education. Latina/o schoolleaders, their personal histories, leadership challenges related to gender and race, contributions, roles, responsibilities,and career aspirations, both personal and organizational, are undocumented in the school leadership research.A study of Latina/o leaders that examines leadership experiences, the relationship between leadership and identity,and career aspiration offers important dimensions for the field of educational leadership. For these reasons, examiningLatina/os and school leadership is both timely and relevant to our K‐12 schools, educational leadership programs, andchanging demographics. The secondary purpose of this publication is to enrich the preparation of schooladministrators of color, as to the skills and knowledge necessary to serve the needs of students in contemporary times.

This book explains why some missionaries are being led to reject the missional models and many of the methodologies which are the most widely accepted by North American evangelical missionaries working in France. The author demonstrates that the evangelical Protestant missionaries' witness for Christ in Western Europe is often ineffective because their governing missional paradigm and their ministry methods, working in conjunction, tend to project a separatist image and isolate them from those they wish to influence for Christ.The author argues for the development of a missionary spirituality based upon the kenosis and an understanding of Christian unity based upon the perichoresis.

Document from the year 2015 in the subject Theology - Miscellaneous, , language: English, abstract: There are an increasing number of missionaries and church leaders in Africa and Europe whose views of the gospel and the principle of submission are not very clear. Some views of the gospel are obviously shaped by postmodernism, feminism or liberation theology; and while some church and mission leaders understand submission in authoritarian terms others favour a laissez-faire approach. These different views and attitudes, however, raise some important questions: How can missionaries work together in a team or cooperate with indigenous churches if they do not agree on the nature of the gospel? What motivates missionaries for ministry if it is not the Good News as we can find it in the Bible? How can missionaries serve on the mission field if they hold to or are confronted with an unbiblical view of submission? The first part of this book examines several false versions of the gospel which Christians encounter on the mission field in Africa and elsewhere today. Furthermore, it looks at the difference the biblical gospel makes in our lives and calls us back to the cross of Christ as our only hope. The second part of this book examines the complex issues of submission, authority and accountability in the various relationships that exist whenever a missionary goes out to serve God and His Church. Some of the most vivid contemporary problems are addressed from a biblical perspective....

First published in 1974. From the preface: ""More than forty nations provided assistance to the Republic of Vietnam in its struggle against North Vietnam. This aid ranged from economic and technical assistance to educational and humanitarian contributions. Hundreds of Free World civilians worked in Vietnam as doctors, teachers, and technical specialists. Eight nations also provided military assistance. The flags of these Free World countries-the United States, the Republic of Korea, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, the Republic of China, and Spain-flew alongside the colors of the Republic of Vietnam at the headquarters of the Free World Military Assistance Forces in Saigon. The military contributions of these nations included combat troops, army medical teams, and individual political warfare advisers. The degree of assistance and co-operation among the concerned Free World nations resulted from years of work and involvement. While many nations expressed sympathy for the plight of South Vietnam, aid did not always come easily, quickly, or to the extent desired. Many nations, beset by their own internal economic and political problems, could do little to help; others did nothing. The story of the efforts of the contributing nations and the efforts to enlist their aid is the subject of this monograph"".

C. A. Bowers Perspectives on the Ideas of Gregory Bateson, Ecological Intelligence, and Educational Reforms

1102 руб.
It is widely acknowledged that Gregory Bateson's ideas have been influential in a number of fields. Unfortunately, the importance of his ideas for understanding why public schools and universities continue to perpetuate ecologically unsustainable ways of thinking has not been adequately recognized. Given the deepening ecological and economic crises, this book is particularly timely as it clarifies how Bateson's five key ideas, when taken as a whole, provides the conceptual framework for introducing educational reforms that address both problems. That is, he explains why educators unconsciously continue to perpetuate the deep cultural assumptions that were constituted before there was an awareness of environmental limits, and how the emphasis on a possessive form of individualism and endless material progress undermines traditions of self-reliance within the world's diversity of communities. His contributions to making substantive educational reforms include: (1) Rethinking social justice issues in ways that take account of how the ecological crisis impacts the most vulnerable people; (2) How to make the transition to exercising ecological intelligence in the areas of democratic decision making and moral values; (3) Clarifying how computer-mediated learning perpetuates abstract thinking and the deep cultural assumptions that are at the cultural roots of the ecological and economic crises. The chapter on pedagogical and curricular decisions that foster ecological in...

Volume 1 Number 2 2015The SoJo Journal: Educational Foundations and Social Justice Education is an international peer reviewed journal of educational foundations. The Department of Educational Leadership at California State University, East Bay,whose mission is to prepare and influence bold, socially responsible leaders who will transform the world of schooling, hosts the journal. It publishes essays that examine contemporary educational and social contexts and practices from critical perspectives. The SoJo Journal: Educational Foundations and Social Justice Education is interested in research studies as well as conceptual, theoretical, philosophical, and policy‐analysis essays that advance educational practices that challenge the existing state of affairs insociety, schools, and (in)formal education.The SoJo Journal: Educational Foundations and Social Justice Education is necessary because currently there is not an exclusively international, Foundations of Education journal. For instance, three of the leading journal in Education Foundations journals (e.g.,The Journal of Educational Studies, British Journal of Sociology of Education, The Journal of Educational Foundations) solicit manuscripts and support scholarship mainly from professors who reside in Britain and the United States. This journal is also unique because it will bring together scholars and practitioners from disciplines outside of Educational Foundations, who are equally committed to social change and promoting...

J. Hudson Taylor The Autobiography of J. Hudson Taylor. Journals of an Evangelical Missionary Who Preached Christianity in China

827 руб.
J. Hudson Taylor was one of the most successful Christian missionaries in China during the 19th century - this is his story, in his own words, with his own photographs. Choosing to focus on life as a gifted and diligent mission worker, Taylor spends only little time on his formative years. He describes his upbringing in but a few paragraphs, stating that it was his father's interest in China - a vast yet undeveloped faraway land - which inspired him to become a missionary. The education he had in medicine accompanied his Christian learning; at the time, missionaries with medical skill were both necessary and in shortage. Over thirty drawings and photographs, plus one lengthy piece of sheet music, form part of this autobiography. The reader is immersed in the culture of rural China as it was in the mid and late 19th century, with temples and architecture contrasting deeply with the Western world. J. Hudson Taylor makes headway in the land, with many rural Chinese converting to Christianity. The author became a much-respected figure in China, standing out among thousands of missionaries to pioneer education and aid development of the society. The legacy of Taylor and others is clear today: there are at least 31 million Christians in China, with thousands of churches spread throughout the mainland and in Hong Kong.

Its major claim is that the historyof educational research is embedded in the nation's social, political, intellectual, and economic histories.Attention is given to three significant periods: the Progressive Era when modern educational research began toassume its present form; the Post-World-War-II-Era when educators and educational researchers were directedto return to or turn to the academic disciplines; and the Civil Rights Era after the Supreme Court in Brownended legal racial segregation and raised questions about equality of educational opportunity that are still withus. These were significant periods when there was a clear national agenda shaped by both public and privateagencies. Educators and educational researchers adopted policies and strategies in response to concerns andinterests expressed by the public, by government officials, and by philanthropies. Researchers' responses have had long-term consequences as seen inthe reaction to The Coleman Report, debates about the merits of quantitative research as opposed to qualitative research, the ongoing discussion aboutth...

The contributors to this volume are academics working directly or indirectly with teaching and learning centers and professional communities, serving in the capacity of educational developer, researcher, or specialist; unit manager or director; or senior administrator. Drawing on survey and interview data, individual experience or perspective, and familiarity with the educational literature, they offer a context to understand and appreciate how the field of educational development, developer practice, and individual pathways have evolved, further highlighting what territory remains to be explored and uncovered. Over the last fifty years, educational development has evolved from an informal set of instructional improvement activities championed by individuals to a scholarly field of study and practice that aims to advance teaching and learning at the individual, institutional and (more recently) sector levels. During this time, educational development work has moved from the fringes to the mainstream of the higher education landscape, bringing to the community a diverse group of dedicated academic professionals. This volume draws on their experience and insight to provide an invaluable guide to future challenges and issues. This is the 122nd volume of the Jossey-Bass higher education quarterly report series New Directions for Teaching and Learning, which offers a comprehensive range of ideas and techniques for improving college teaching based on the experience of seasoned instructors and the latest findings of educational and psychological researchers.

Facebook, Twitter, Google…today's tech-savvy students are always plugged in. However, all too often their teachers and administrators aren't experienced in the use of these familiar digital tools. If schools are to prepare students for the future, administrators and educators must harness the power of digital technologies and social media. With contributions from authorities on the topic of educational technology, What School Leaders Need to Know About Digital Technologies and Social Media is a compendium of the most useful tools for any education setting. Throughout the book, experts including Will Richardson, Vicki Davis, Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach, Richard Byrne, Joyce Valenza, and many others explain how administrators and teachers can best integrate technology into schools, helping to make sense of the often-confusing world of social media and digital tools. They offer the most current information for the educational use of blogs, wikis and podcasts, online learning, open-source courseware, educational gaming, social networking, online mind mapping, mobile phones, and more, and include examples of these methods currently at work in schools. As the book clearly illustrates, when these tools are combined with thoughtful and deliberate pedagogical practice, it can create a transformative experience for students, educators, and administrators alike. What School Leaders Need to Know About Digital Technologies and Social Media reveals the power of information technology and social networks in the classroom and throughout the education community.

Compassionate missions constitutes a growing focus among evangelical denominations and agencies. Because of this, there exists a growing need to be guided by sound principles and best practices. This edited volume sets forth both the biblical foundations and preferred methods for churches wanting to engage in compassion as part of their missionary efforts. The aim throughout is that compassionate missions would be guided by indigenous principles that help establish autonomous local churches, capable of being salt and light in their communities. The contributors to this volume have over 200 years of missions experience. Through their first-hand knowledge of the challenges and pitfalls faced by missionaries engaging in compassion, these authors set forth foundational principles and practical guidelines related to some of the most pressing issues confronting missionaries today. These include HIV/AIDS, UPGs, human trafficking, orphans and vulnerable children, gender issues, and many more. Pastors, missionaries, missions boards, and educators will find this a valuable resource as the church in the twenty-first century continues to engage in the Great Commission.""I wish For the Love of God were available when I began my church-planting ministry as a missionary more than 30 years ago.

The book does not attempt to tell the complete history of all the accomplishments of African American men and women featured in the book. But it is my hope that the book will become a starting point for further study of the contributions and achievements that a lot of African Americans have made in the past that helped shape American history.Many significant events and personalities in the African American's history and life portrayed in the book are respectfully highlighted as they pursued their goals in American society. The social, scientific, artistic, athletic, religious, educational, and economic development of African American characters was researched and carefully studied to examine the stories of African Americans as slaves who later became emancipated that helped shape American history.The basic aim of the book is to promote a better understanding of America's past by developing an increased awareness of the magnitude of the contribution of the African American in some areas of American life and through all periods of American history.Finally, the book is designed to give teachers and students in our educational and religious institutions a broader and more factual statement of the African Americans role in our nation's history so that the reader will realize that African American history is American history.

Potential and novice graduate students, researchers, educators, and reformers may find themselves bewildered and perplexed by the vast changes in public education. They may just want to briefly know the core concepts. They may also need to use the language in order to be able to articulate its major issues. Whatever the case, the work of authorities in the field of educational change facilitates the conceptual landscape that can enable one's entry into the fundamental concepts that sustain this flourishing field. Here is a close and descriptive reading of some of the foundational works of one of these authorities in the field of educational change (the Canadian scholar and theorist of educational change Michael Fullan) who has certainly helped many make sense of the complexity of the educational change process.
