This rule guarantees that all the changes performed in the base relations UNDERGRADUATE and GRADUATE will be reflected (i.e., will be visible) in their view STUDENT. In particular, for every UNDERGRADUATE and GRADUATE tuple there will be a tuple in the relation STUDENT with the same values of the STUDENTID, NAME, and ADDRESS attributes. Views behave like database relations in many ways. In particular, queries may be stated on views. Examples of such queries are: Print the name and the address of a student with a given student id. Print the alphabetical listing of names of all students and their addresses. Print the names of all students who have the same address.
The first two of the above queries make it obvious that the set of lectures should be the property of the lecturer giving those lectures and also that the set of lectures of a course should be an attribute of that course. The next two of the above queries suggest that in addition to the above requirement the structured tuples of the relation LECTURE should be ordered in two ways: according to the lecturers and according to the courses. Of course, one relation cannot be physically structured according to the above two requirements and the purpose of the relational images is to offer such logical orderings of relations together with the associated primitive operations on them. One way of looking at the relational images within the relational framework is illustrated by the following schema: LECTURE(LECTUREID, COURSEID, LECTURERID, DAY, ROOM, TIME) LECTURERS (LECTURER ID, LECTUREID) COURSES(COURSEID, LECTURE ID) The above representation of two images LECTURERS and COURSES of the relation LECTURE is proposed on the assumption that all three relations are structured in such a way that selection of the tuple with a given tuple identifier is an efficient action (operation). The above representation makes it obvious that changes in the base relations LECTURE must be appropriately reflected in its relational views. That is the price which must be paid to speed-up search (selection) operations on the relation LECTURE. Observe that the views LECTURERS and COURSES are much smaller relations than the base relation LECTURE since their tuples are smaller. Whenever a tuple of the LECTURE relation is inserted, appropriate tuples which refer to it must be inserted in the relational images LECTURERS and COURSES. Whenever a tuple of the LECTURE relation is deleted, the appropriate tuples of the relational images LECTURERS and COURSES which refer to it must be deleted from these images.

Foundations in art theory and education
The Foundation in Art & Design provides students the opportunity to assess their interest and proficiency in the visual arts, while developing the fundamental skills that are essential building blocks to becoming a better artist.
Gnomon’s Foundation in Art & Design provides up to a year of fundamental art education to students looking to become better artists, build a well-rounded portfolio, and lay the groundwork for further education in digital production or a related field.

Therefore, an Ad Hoc committee of FATE Members created a document for the purpose of setting guidelines for foundations that have received general consensus by members of the organization at the 11th Biennial Conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2007. FATE is not an accrediting body, these issues are intended to be used as guidelines to help foundation faculty and administration as they strengthen, reorganize, seek administrative support, or as a guide for the development of fledgling foundation programs. They are, in essence, an opinion that has emerged from of our collective knowledge of foundations.

…with the National Art Education Association’s From Periphery to Center published just a few years ago, and decent coverage on the topic in journals like the Journal of Museum Education and occasional articles in Art Education magazine, the Journal of Aesthetic Education, etc.
There are a few misses. While Discipline Based Art Education (DBAE) was discussed, I was disappointed that one of DBAE’s great contribution to the art museum field – that it got more students in classrooms looking at works of art – wasn’t mentioned. The authors clearly are not fans of Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) but fail to acknowledge that the technique is based on real research. In that omission, the reader who is familiar with VTS will wonder whether Burnham and Kai Kee really understand it. It’s curious that Burnahm writes about her own technique: “The paths of inquiry we followed to reach the goal were always charted by the visitors themselves.” and is apparently unaware how close this is to VTS. There is also an interesting deconstruction of gallery discussions with visitors, in which three modes of talk and the differences between them are defined: conversation, discussion, and dialogue. Although there’s a nice analysis about the differences between these three, it never quite manages to answer the question “so what?”

In chapter 13, myself, Philipp Schorch and Arapata Hakiwai address ‘The figure of the kaitiaki’, referring to the notion of kaitiakitanga or guardianship which has been a feature of Māori museology in the last twenty years. The current chapter draws on research by the authors, including interviews with Māori curators, museum professionals, academics, and community leaders, exploring connections with the wider Pacific and the world. The ‘figure of the kaitiaki’ has developed historically as a particular local development of curatorship, drawing on Māori customary concepts and frameworks such as tikanga Māori (culture/practices) and Mātauranga Māori (knowledge).
This traversal of a complex, fragmented and ephemeral domain treats digital heritage as “more than the sum of these digital media tools and platforms,” and aims to understand “the engagement between cultural heritage and technology through the application of a broader socio-cultural lens.” Taking a multidisciplinary approach, and avoiding the utopian, technical or pessimistic rhetoric that often marks writing on this topic, they review the history, use and application of digital technology in cultural heritage environments, which has now become so ubiquitous that the term ‘new’ media seems obsolete, discussing the opportunities and challenges facing museums today.

deconstructing dispositions: toward a critical ability theory in teacher education

Integrating Disability Studies Pedagogy in Teacher Education By Justin Freedman, Ph.D. Assistant Professor, Rowan University Amy Applebaum, M.A. Doctoral Student, Syracuse

deconstructing dispositions: toward a critical ability theory in teacher education

Deconstructing dispositions: toward a critical ability theory in teacher education
Efforts to better prepare teacher candidates to effectively enact disability studies within individual school contexts can be informed by the experiences of current teachers. Research by Broderick et al. (2012), Naraian and Schlessinger (2018), and Rood and Ashby (2018) provides insight into the obstacles faced by teachers who have graduated from DS-influenced teacher education programs, such as accountability policies that segregate students and the isolation that may result from challenging predominant practices in special education without the support of fellow teachers or administrators. Notably, Rood and Ashby (2018) found that eight of the eleven teachers in their study had planned to leave teaching, prompting them to ask “If teachers who believe in DSE are abandoning their respective teaching posts, what long-term impact can DSE have to unseat and challenge the oppressive systems of special education and public education?” (p. 14)
Further, it is important that teacher educators work collaboratively to introduce disability studies perspectives across teacher education. For example, the practice of assigning subject area teacher candidates to create K-12 lessons/units that address disability as a sociocultural phenomenon (Ferri, 2006) need not be relegated to a single course that addresses disability/special education. Beyond the humanities examples in this paper, content area methods classes in math and science would include topics such as eugenics and intelligence testing to highlight the connection between past attitudes about disability and concepts that teacher candidates will be required to teach. Disability studies should serve as an analytic framework introduced with other critical frameworks in foundations courses that ask teacher educators to examine how educational policies and practices preserve prevailing patterns of power, privilege, and hierarchy across racialized, gendered, and class lines (Bialka 2015; Loutzenheiser & Erevelles, 2019).

Latterly this student generation of assessment criteria has been extended to other assessments including the traditional essays, projects (individual and group), reports and the construction of resources. The tasks for assessment are identified and the students are collectively very capable of generating criteria that effectively assess the task. In our experience, the students generate criteria that are equally good as those the lecturers may have conceived and they have the added advantage of being owned by the students. Because our program is based on students reflecting on their own experiences in teaching, they are developing confidence and competence in defining assessment criteria that truly reflect their own contexts and that also reflect the qualities of excellent teachers.
These are the contexts that frame the being of students in classrooms and can also be utilized as the framework for content and process, including assessment. Clearly they suggest challenges to conventional assessment practices. If traditional teacher-directed or institutionally imposed and standardized methods of assessment are used, they run the risk of reflecting the “social, political, cultural and ideological conditions” of society and thus are implicated in generating “divisions that make difficult the construction of our ideals of change and transformation” (Freire, 1998: 55).

Oliver, M. (1990). The politics of disablement: A sociological approach . New York: St. Martin’s Press.
Disability studies gained momentum as a result of the disability rights movement (Pfeiffer, 1993) and the political victory as a result of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, which guarantees the civil rights of people with disabilities (Davis, 1997a). The achievements of social movements of people of color and the women’s rights movement as well as an emerging cadre of well-educated, assertive people with disabilities in the social environment of the 1960s provided a strong impetus for the emergence of the disability rights movement (for a detailed history of disability rights movement and civil rights legislation for people with disabilities, see Scotch, 1984 and Shapiro, 1993). This new social movement defies the assumptions of the biomedical model, which categorizes and divides people with disabilities on the basis of functional limitations.

Deconstructing dispositions: toward a critical ability theory in teacher education
The transmission of knowledge through the education system has been built on the foundation of historical and societal ideology; however, reflecting on the education system brings to light questions such as, whose culture is predominant within the curriculum? What is the principal perspective reflected in the course content? Most importantly, whose history, values, and beliefs are absent from or marginalized by the existing system? These questions serve as an introduction to the discussion of how dominant social and historical ideology was forcefully transmitted through the residential school system and often subtly occurs in post-secondary education.
Weber’s (2010) comprehensive framework . To more fully understand the formation of identity developed within dominant societal ideology and the relationship to the educational system, it is useful to review the five themes proposed by Weber (2010). This framework offers a comprehensive lens for examining how individual identity is developed within, and is affected by, societal ideology, including (a) historical and geographical context, (b) the impact of societal constructs, (c) the operation of power relationships at (d) macro social-structural and micro social-psychological levels, and (e) the simultaneous expression of power throughout macro and micro levels (Weber, 2010). An examination of these themes brings to light societal factors that influence the development of identity and the intersectionality that occurs between each. Weber (2010) indicates that to “focus on only a single dimension, although useful for some purposes, [is] ultimately partial” (p. 92). The first three themes recognize the significance that historical, geographical, and societal contexts have on the development of identity, which are further reflected in the construction of societal and cultural knowledge, beliefs, and norms. The fourth and fifth themes highlight the potential for micro-aggressive or other personal bias behaviours to become forcefully or subtly integrated into the learning environment during the development or delivery of curriculum. Weber’s proposed themes provide an inclusive view of how dimensions such as power relations, dominance, and historical and societal contexts intersect and influence the formation of individual identity and are further enculturated into the education system. This framework is a useful guide for educators to understand the complexity of factors that affect the development of identity. It could also be used as a tool for self-reflection and aid in establishing an appreciation for individual differences.

conflict theory and education

Conflict theory and education
Such a situation leads to social class reproduction, extensively studied by French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu. He researched how cultural capital , or cultural knowledge that serves (metaphorically) as currency that helps us navigate a culture, alters the experiences and opportunities available to French students from different social classes. Members of the upper and middle classes have more cultural capital than do families of lower-class status. As a result, the educational system maintains a cycle in which the dominant culture’s values are rewarded. Instruction and tests cater to the dominant culture and leave others struggling to identify with values and competencies outside their social class. For example, there has been a great deal of discussion over what standardized tests such as the SAT truly measure. Many argue that the tests group students by cultural ability rather than by natural intelligence.
Conflict theorists do not believe that public schools reduce social inequality. Rather, they believe that the educational system reinforces and perpetuates social inequalities that arise from differences in class, gender, race, and ethnicity. Where functionalists see education as serving a beneficial role, conflict theorists view it more negatively. To them, educational systems preserve the status quo and push people of lower status into obedience.

Conflict theory and education
The Hidden Curriculum ideology is very prevalent in sociology, as sociologists seek to better understand how education is shaping society as a larger unit. This video explains what this means.
Such a situation leads to social class reproduction, extensively studied by French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu. He researched how cultural capital , or cultural knowledge that serves as (metaphorical) currency that helps us navigate a culture, alters the experiences and opportunities available to French students from different social classes. Members of the upper and middle classes have more cultural capital than do families of lower-class status. As a result, the educational system maintains a cycle in which the dominant culture’s values are rewarded and thus generationally reproduced. Instruction and tests cater to the dominant culture and leave others struggling to identify with values and competencies outside their social class. For example, there has been a great deal of discussion over what standardized tests such as the SAT truly measure. Many argue that the tests group students by cultural ability rather than by natural intelligence. For example, a question on the comprehensive reading section of the SAT inquires about a painting at an art museum. For a student who has not experienced art museums regularly, this question poses greater difficulty than it does for a student who grew up going to cultural events such as art exhibitions. Such mechanisms in public education reinforce and perpetuate inequalities.

Conflict theory and education
Conflict theory assumes that the ideas held by a society are the ideas of the ruling class. The ruling class uses schools, along with the media and other means of communication, to disseminate ideas that will support its continued rule. Given this assumption, the conflict perspective often focuses on the role school systems may play in influencing public opinion, or implementing social control.
Vocational track: Students in a vocational track may learn skills such as wood working.

Conflict theory and education
Functional theory stresses the functions that education serves in fulfilling a society’s various needs. Perhaps the most important function of education is socialization. If children are to learn the norms, values, and skills they need to function in society, then education is a primary vehicle for such learning. Schools teach the three Rs (reading, ’riting, ’rithmetic), as we all know, but they also teach many of the society’s norms and values. In the United States, these norms and values include respect for authority, patriotism (remember the Pledge of Allegiance?), punctuality, and competition (for grades and sports victories).
Social and cultural innovation is a fourth function of education. Our scientists cannot make important scientific discoveries and our artists and thinkers cannot come up with great works of art, poetry, and prose unless they have first been educated in the many subjects they need to know for their chosen path.

In current conflict theory, there are four primary assumptions which are helpful to understand: competition, revolution, structural inequality, and war.
Conflict theorists believe that competition is a constant and, at times, an overwhelming factor in nearly every human relationship and interaction. Competition exists as a result of the scarcity of resources, including material resources–money, property, commodities, and more. Beyond material resources, individuals and groups within a society also compete for intangible resources as well. These can include leisure time, dominance, social status, sexual partners, etc. Conflict theorists assume that competition is the default (rather than cooperation).

This process of interpretation, articulation, and re-evaluation is repeated until they can demonstrate their comprehension of the subject.
Constructivism and Social Constructivism are two similar learning theories which share a large number of underlying assumptions, and an interpretive epistemological position.

A constructivist approach to learning and instruction has been proposed as an alternative to the objectivist model, which is implicit in all behaviorist and some cognitive approaches to education. Objectivism sees knowledge as a passive reflection of the external, objective reality. This implies a process of “instruction,” ensuring that the learner gets correct information.
Real and authentic problems. Constructivist learning is based on the active participation of learners in problem-solving and critical thinking–given real and authentic problems.

3) The teacher’s role is one of a facilitator or guide.
In elaborating constructivists’ ideas Arends (1998) states that constructivism believes in personal construction of meaning by the learner through experience, and that meaning is influenced by the interaction of prior knowledge and new events.

Constructivism learning theory is a philosophy which enhances students’ logical and conceptual growth. The underlying concept within the constructivism learning theory is the role which experiences-or connections with the adjoining atmosphere-play in student education.
Instead of having the students relying on someone else’s information and accepting it as truth, the constructivism learning theory supports that students should be exposed to data, primary sources, and the ability to interact with other students so that they can learn from the incorporation of their experiences. The classroom experience should be an invitation for a myriad of different backgrounds and the learning experience which allows the different backgrounds to come together and observe and analyze information and ideas.

Constructivism education theory
Welcome to Constructivism as a Paradigm for Teaching and Learning . Start with the Explanation section to gain a good understanding of the CONCEPT of constructivism. Then go on to Demonstration, where we move from CONCEPT TO CLASSROOM!
In the classroom, the constructivist view of learning can point towards a number of different teaching practices. In the most general sense, it usually means encouraging students to use active techniques (experiments, real-world problem solving) to create more knowledge and then to reflect on and talk about what they are doing and how their understanding is changing. The teacher makes sure she understands the students’ preexisting conceptions, and guides the activity to address them and then build on them.

theory of ict in education

Theory of ict in education
A range of ICT based learning activities are underpinned by constructivist learning theory. Seymour Papert has argued that by learning computer programming, students learn how to think and learn for themselves. Papert created the computer programming language LOGO in which a small turtle is moved around the screen in response to programmed commands.
Hypertext and the Internet have provided learners with vast quantities of information to explore and mine. The information learner’s find on the Internet becomes knowledge when it is interpreted and processed by the human brain. This can be facilitated through a constructivist approach where the teacher provides scaffolding and guidance.

Teachers need to know exactly how ICT is used as a teaching and learning tool, for their own purposes and to help students to use them. This module is about the integration of ICT as a tool in the classroom with the overall aim of increasing the effectiveness of teaching and improving students’ learning. The module outlines a program of objectives and related activities for an ICT enhanced learning environment in teaching and learning.
The main objectives of the module are to have you:

Effective use of ICT for teaching and learning in schools and universities is not widespread, even though the technology is now almost ubiquitous. Some teachers and lecturers have been able to integrate ICT use into their teaching, and more importantly engage students in making use of ICT as part of the process of learning. However there are still many barriers and impediments in the way of ICT becoming an integral part of teaching and learning. Some of these impediments will be discussed, with a special focus on beginning teachers and ICT. Throughout this paper, the term “beginning teachers” will be taken to include teachers who have recently entered the teaching professions as well as teacher education students in universities and other teacher education institutions.

As computers become an integral part of the teaching and learning environment, it is useful for those who use these digital appliances to know the theoretical basis to support the belief that computers support and assist learning. In this section of the module we will consider the theories that underpin the promotion of computers as teaching and learning tools. Remember one of the questions that Dr. Poole raised in Chapter 13 of his book was whether the application of computers in the classroom was based on sound pedagogical theories. He went on to say that by and large it was based on learning theories that fall under three categories. These are behaviourism, cognitivism and constructivism.

Another type of analysis focused on the practical aspects of the teachers’ questions categorized into the two categories: “practice and theory” and “practice vs. theory.” Since the theory was introduced during the course, it was informative to reveal the main aspects of practice being considered by the teachers while thinking about the connections to the theory they had just been exposed to. All of the questions of the “practice and theory” and “practice vs. theory” categories were read repeatedly and given an initial “practical aspect” description, which was then refined by several cycles of analysis to the final categories presented in the findings section.

In seventh paper, ‘Modelling and validating the learning opportunities of preservice language teachers: On the key components of the curriculum for teacher education’, Johannes König, Albert Bremerich-Vos, Christiane Buchholtz, Sandra Lammerding, Sarah Strauß, Ilka Fladung and Charlotte Schleiffer, from Germany, look at the ways in which student-teachers are provided with opportunities to learn in ITE. Issues such as the representation of content in courses of the subject, subject-related pedagogy and general pedagogy, as well as teaching practice are analysed. The authors assert that the more coherent the student-teachers perceived their university–school relationship, the better they were able to benefit from their teaching practice. Not surprisingly, the paper concludes that teaching practice is the central component in terms of student-teachers’ self-reported planning competence. The participants highlight that their professional learning was supported through activities in which they were required to link theory they had learned at university and practical situations.
There are, therefore, clear variations across ITE programmes internationally in terms of the research dimension and its connection (or lack of it) with theory and practice. Different ways of understanding ‘research’ in ITE and of putting it into place may also be identified as the papers included in this Special Issue clearly illustrate. In particular, this Special Issue addresses the following questions: (i) What are the critical issues in the ITE curriculum internationally? (ii) How is the research dimension integrated in ITE programmes? (iii) What are the approaches and strategies to integrate theory and practice in ITE internationally?

Practice and theory in systems of education

We did a research assignment for one of our lecturers and we’ve had to research how a teacher in Foundation Phase provides for a child whose home language is not allowed. And we are seeing that teachers are not providing that support. And my partner and I are realising it’s because they are ignoring some theoretical underpinning concepts, that they are ignoring this poor child. He’s sitting in a foundation phase class not understanding and it’s because the teacher is not acknowledging theory.

Based on the discussion above a few issues appear to stand out as requiring attention in teacher education. First is the issue of what student teachers bring with them to pre-service teacher education programmes and how teacher educators can make the most out of this anecdotal knowledge in designing courses and modules. University coursework should strive to tap more into the personal beliefs and values student teachers already hold since these have a powerful influence on how teacher identities, professional demeanours and understandings of theory as formal conceptual and practical knowledge all develop. If we acknowledge that the most effective learning is that which starts with the known before moving to the unknown, as some of the student teachers in this study mentioned, then we need to also acknowledge that theory is best learnt in action. In addition, we need to acknowledge that personal theorising underpins the acquisition and understanding of formal conceptual knowledge (Gravett, 2012).

Moreover, it appears that students find it challenging to manage theory at different levels, specifically with regard to the use of general concepts such as those expressed in the curricula and study guides, for concrete, everyday clinical practice:
The second tension that I have identified concerns the level of engagement in the practice of individuals, which has implications for ownership. By enabling engagement in learning and development, individual students, teachers, and leaders are faced with a choice that in itself creates tension. Should one engage fully, and thus possibly compromise previous values and approaches to practice inherent in one’s role as an outsider, or should one maintain a critical, more distanced perspective? This dilemma, apart from being clear in the studies of nursing and medical students as they engaged in clinical learning environments, is exemplified below in a study on the development of teaching and learning at a research-intensive department (Laksov, Mann, & Dahlgren, 2008 ).

Foundations of critical race theory in education
With this mission, the annual Critical Race Studies in Education (CRSEA) conference brings together scholars, activists, educators, students and community members who use critical race studies as a tool to frame, examine, document, understand and transform racial inequalities in education and in the broader society.”
“The Critical Race Studies in Education Association (CRSEA) is an interdisciplinary consortium of experts who recognize global implications of race and education for minoritized people. Through scholarship, we identify and expose inequities for the ultimate eradication of white supremacy. As a community, we are committed to (1) countering and combating systemic and structural racism with scholarship and praxis, (2) recognizing the multiple locations of oppression and the myriad manifestations and effects of their intersections and (3) co-constructing liberating knowledge that facilitates collective agency to transform schools and communities.

Part Two: History and evolution

CRT’s arrival in England can be dated to the period 2003–2006. In the USA during the 1990s CRT had been taken up in the field of education. The paper that signalled the transfer of CRT to the field of education was Ladson-Billings and Tate’s ( 1995 ) ‘Towards a Critical Race Theory of Education’. Their research was developed in the subsequent work of, among others, Richard Delgado, Laurence Parker, Daniel Solórzano, Tara Yosso, Edward Taylor, Adrienne Dixson and Zeus Leonardo. In England, it was educational researchers, rather than legal scholars, who first adopted CRT. The reasons for this are not hard to fathom. England did not have the same history of civil rights legislation as the USA. From the 1950s onwards, as Britain’s post-Windrush migrants became settled communities, activists and intellectuals had waged anti-racist struggles that tended to focus on street politics and on government policy rather than legislation per se.
However, this paper is not an ‘attack’ on Marxism; neither it is a ‘defence’ of CRT. It is a historical review of the growth of a current school of race-conscious analysis in English academia, and the resistance to it. It is salient because the contests over CRT’s legitimacy reveal much about the continued regulation of critical theories of race in academia and in the wider public space. The paper begins by outlining CRT’s analytical framework and its critique of liberal models of race equality. It goes on to examine histories of race-conscious thought and politics in England. Discussion then turns to the development of CRT in England and the extent to which sustained antagonism towards CRT reflects long-standing tensions around ‘left’ analyses of race and class.
