Promoting physical activity for children with autism spectrum disorders during Coronavirus outbreak: Benefits, strategies, and examplesYarımkaya, E., & Esentürk, O. K. - 2020 - International Journal of Developmental Disabilities, 0(0), 1–7
Described as a global outbreak (pandemic) by the World Health Organization, Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) raises great concern with more than 2 million infected patients worldwide. A series of measures are taken by governments worldwide to prevent the spread of the outbreak. As new cases increase, people are asked to stay at home. Active living areas such as sports centers, parks and schools are closed in most countries. In this process, staying at home for a long time makes it difficult...

Computers and the academic performance of elementary school-aged girls in China’s poor communitiesYang, Y., Zhang, L., Zeng, J., … Rozelle, S. - 2013 - Computers & Education, 60(1), 335–346
Experts agree that computers and computing play an important role in education. Since the 1980s there has been a debate about gender as it relates to computers and education. However, results regarding gender differences concerning computer use in education are not consistent. In particular there is little work done in China on this issue. Therefore, the overall goal of this paper is to demonstrate whether girls and boys can gain equally from computer-based education in China's elementary...
Emanant themes of blended learning in K-12 educational environments: lessons from the Every Student Succeeds ActYang, S., Carter, J., Richard, Zhang, L., & Hunt, T. - 2021 - Computers & Education, 163, 104116
Blended learning (BL) is an instructional design structure that facilitates the benefits of technology, paired with face-to-face instruction, to address the variance in student learning. BL has been widely utilized in education with the rapid development of technology. While the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA, 2015) of the United States emphasizes supporting states to implement BL by facilitating the use of technology, it is unclear how states intend to operationalize BL in practice based...

Challenges and strategies of working with learners with low vision: Implications for teacher trainingYalo, J. A., Indoshi, F. C., & Agak, J. O. - 2012 - Educational Research and Reviews, 7(10), 238–243
Learners with low vision can be trained to increase their visual functioning through a planned programme of visual experiences. Such a low vision training programme was introduced in Kenya in 1994. However, despite its implementation over the last 15 years, challenges still persist among teachers who work with such learners. The purpose of this study was to document challenges that learners with low vision have on teachers’ performance when teaching learners with low vision in special...
Soft Systems Methodology in an Educational Context—Enhancing Students Perception and UnderstandingYadin, A. - 2013 - International Journal of E-Education, e-Business, e-Management and e-Learning
This study was performed within a graduate course in the Organizational Development and Consulting graduate program. The course draws a comparison between the systems analysis processes used in computing systems (hard systems) and the organizational analysis methodologies applied in soft systems, such as Checklands' Soft Systems Methodology (SSM). Since most students' previous academic experience is in social sciences, abstract concepts related to computing systems were difficult to...

Guidance on Conducting a Systematic Literature ReviewXiao, Y., & Watson, M. - 2017 - Journal of Planning Education and Research, 0739456X17723971
Literature reviews establish the foundation of academic inquires. However, in the planning field, we lack rigorous systematic reviews. In this article, through a systematic search on the methodology of literature review, we categorize a typology of literature reviews, discuss steps in conducting a systematic literature review, and provide suggestions on how to enhance rigor in literature reviews in planning education and research.

For two cohorts of children from low- to moderate-income families, time-use diaries of television viewing were collected over 3 years (from ages 2-5 and 4-7 years, respectively), and tests of reading, math, receptive vocabulary, and school readiness were administered annually. Relations between viewing and performance were tested in path analyses with controls for home environment quality and primary language (English or Spanish).
