EDU REVIEW. International Education and Learning Review 2020-11-11T16:13:05+01:00 Equipo editorial Open Journal Systems <p><em>EDU REVIEW. International Education and Learning Review</em> publishes rigorous articles that contribute to our collective understanding of the theory and practice of the field of education. Submissions related to contemporary as well as emergent research theory, methods, practices, and issues are welcome. The goal of the journal is to promote dialogue, understanding, as well as collaboration among scholars and practitioners who reflect the broad spectrum of education around the world. The journal welcomes submissions in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. The journal is refereed, blind-peer reviewed, and publishes 4 issues per year. Only original texts are accepted for publication.</p> Educational Digital Media Tools to Reformulate Activity and Object in Indigenous Science and Environmental Education 2020-10-15T08:10:08+02:00 Reynaldo Morales Cardenas <p>This paper examines the functioning of and underlying assumptions about digital media in collaborative curriculum design processes in public science and environmental education, and community-designed action research learning programs. The article discusses teaching practices in US rural Northeast Wisconsin among Native Youth learning processes, from the complementation and articulation of formal and informal education to meaningful engagement and participation in science. The focus on the transformative use of digital media in science community education is intended to serve two interrelated purposes: First, it helps to address cultural-historical relations around the production of knowledge and relevant curriculums and pedagogies for rural tribal youth. Second, it intersects with the opportunities for the transferability of activity systems and action research centered around the production of mediational artifacts designed for the collective negotiation between First Nations Tribal communities and western modeled schools, institutions, workplaces, and societal roles. The transferability of this model envisions the incorporation of local actors and institutions in a deep artifact-based dialogue around epistemologies of self-determination and sustainability for Peoples who are fighting for their survival. These propositions take a new level when the transformative power of digital media shifts representations of power in historically marginalized communities, serving a larger activity of reorganizing ecologies of learning in education for culturally distinctive communities of practice.</p> 2020-10-05T14:47:16+02:00 Copyright (c) Learning in Collaborative Work 2020-10-22T08:11:32+02:00 Cándida Filgueira Arias Karim Gherab Martin <p>This article argues that peer feedback with evaluation criteria clearly defined by the teacher is more effective than the traditional model. This evaluation goes beyond the vertically oriented assessment (teacher-student), since it enriches the former by adding a peer review process, namely, an horizontally oriented assessment (student-student). The action of evaluating peers makes the students think more critically about their own texts, put themselves in the place of the other, such as the person who will evaluate them, thus enriching their cognitive (meta-cognition) scenario.</p> 2020-10-21T12:32:22+02:00 Copyright (c) Distance Learning in the Theme Nanoscience and Nanotechnology applied to Health Area: Perspectives and Interprofessionalism 2020-11-10T08:17:09+01:00 Jackeline Bellucci <p>Teaching by means of distance learning has grown rapidly in the last few years, allowing Brazilians access to improved higher education in their own country. However, certain challenges exist when it comes to teaching complex, contemporary issues such as Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (N&amp;N). A certain amount of reflection is still required. The objective of this paper is to analyse teaching methods used in distance learning in the fields of N&amp;N which are applied in the areas of health science, with special emphasis on potential, strengths and peculiarities. Issues such as: (i) collaborative learning and (ii) difficulties and opportunities of using distance learning in N&amp;N, among other topics, are presented and discussed. The results indicate the potential use of distance learning in this field of study. Special attention is devoted to the multidisciplinarity and interprofessionalism of the subject as well as to the heterogeneous background of the students and the high level of abstraction.</p> 2020-11-09T13:20:17+01:00 Copyright (c) The Daily Routine of Students in the Classroom 2020-11-10T08:16:45+01:00 Lilian Marques Silva <p><em>The almost instantaneous access to information provided by technological advances has revolutionized the behavior of people and of the classrooms too. Teachers had to adapt themselves to new technologies to maintain students interested and attentive to the discipline being taught. In this work, the behavior of the students of the 6th grade of elementary school II during class was observed. The school chosen is a public school in the State of São Paulo (Brazil). The research was based on data collection. The students were observed by being filmed during six months. The results showed that the students were interested in the classes and committed to the activities. The place that the student chooses to sit in the classroom influences the behavior of the teacher, because the more distant the teacher, the less he participates in the class.</em></p> 2020-11-09T13:23:48+01:00 Copyright (c) The Whole Child Approach: An Opportunity to Transform our Educational Reality in the 21st Century 2020-11-10T08:16:21+01:00 Christian Rafael Quevedo Lezama <p class="p1">This essay proposes an analysis of holistic education, its postulates referring to integrating the emotional and spiritual aspects and building knowledge in students' education. In support of this framework, some significant initiatives proposed by remarkable authors are presented. As a result of this research, it is expected to identify holistic education as a model of sustainable, transformative, and creative teaching that generates in the learners a greater individual awareness of the problems of society, making them part of their essential role within their communities, this as a result of an approach to the emotional and cognitive aspect of students<span class="s1"> .</span></p> 2020-11-09T21:20:11+01:00 Copyright (c) Learning Genetics in High School can be a Game: Gymkhana as a Learning Tool 2020-11-11T08:16:49+01:00 Anna Borrull Riera Cristina Valls Bautista <p>Some studies have verified that the use of innovative methodologies increase motivation and interest to science. Promoting the cooperative and competitive learning to achieve a significant knowledge, and to motivate students. The activity presented has as a main objective to consolidate contents from genetic by means as a gymkhana. The contents treated are the replication process, the transcription process, the translation process and in general the hold flux of genetic information. This activity has been carried on with secondary school students and we observe a good acceptance and implication from teachers and students.</p> 2020-11-10T11:11:30+01:00 Copyright (c) Detection of Lentifications in the Communicative-Linguistic Area in Minors with Congenital Heart Diseases 2020-11-11T16:13:05+01:00 Maria del Rosario Mendoza Carretero Susana Ares Segura Belén Sáenz-Rico de Santiago <p>Congenital heart diseases are malformations of the heart present in the newborn. This study aims to detect if the biomedical variables at birth and at the time of surgery affect the neurodevelopment of 80 participants, without associated chromosomal abnormalities or prematurity, assessed through Bayley-III. The results show that the biomedical variables at the time of the surgical intervention (duration of the operation, clamping, age of surgery and postsurgical stay) are significant in neurodevelopment. There is evidence of a slowdown in the levels of development reached in the language area from 12 months to 42.</p> 2020-11-10T17:26:40+01:00 Copyright (c)
