#1. ANALYSIS ON THE PREVALENCE AND PERCEIVED CONSEQUENCES OF EARLY MARRIAGE ON SCHOOL ENROLMENT, COMPLETION AND ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF FEMALE STUDENTS IN SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS
MUSAB SHUAIBU, MOHAMMED AYUBA
ABSTRACT This paper ventured on the analysis of the prevalence and perceived consequences of early marriage on school enrollment completion and academic performance of female students in senior secondary schools in the North-East Geo-political zone, Nigeria. The objective of the study is to determine the major effects of early marriage on female youth educational development. Ex-post facto design was used for the study. Three hundred and fifty four (354) females’ students for 2015/2016 session constituted sample respondents for the study. They responded to prevalence and perceived consequences of early marriage questionnaire (PCEMQ) while the sample of female student senior secondary school certificate (SSCE) qualifying examination results for the 2015/2016 session was used for the analysis of student academic achievement in English, Mathematics and Biology. The data were analyzed with the statistical package for social science (SPSS) using t-test of inferential statistics i-e. T-test of dependent and independent sample to...

#2. Highlighting the potential of peer-led workshops in training early career researchers for conducting research with Indigenous communities
Gwyneth A. MacMillan, Marianne Falardeau, Catherine Girard, Sophie Dufour-Beauséjour, Justine Lacombe-Bergeron, Allyson K. Menzies, Dominique Henri
For decades, Indigenous voices have called for research practices that are more collaborative and inclusive. At the same time, researchers are becoming aware of the importance of community-collaborative research. However, in Canada, many researchers receive little formal training on how to collaboratively conduct research with Indigenous communities. This is particularly problematic for early-career researchers (ECRs) whose fieldwork often involves interacting with communities. To address this lack of training, two peer-led workshops for Canadian ECRs were organized in 2016 and 2017 with the following objectives: (a) to cultivate awareness about Indigenous cultures, histories and languages; (b) to promote sharing of Indigenous and non-Indigenous ways of knowing; and (c) to foster approaches and explore tools for conducting community collaborative research. Here we present these peer-led Intercultural Indigenous Workshops and discuss workshop outcomes according to five themes: scope and interdisciplinarity, Indigenous...

#3. A brief tribute to slowness in science
Rafael Muñoz-Tamayo
Publish or perish: is it the right motto? The answer to this question should be a strong NO. But we already know that this is not the case. I look at the different calls in which I have participated to get funding. In the CV section, I find the following phrase: I have a solid track record with W publications, of which X% are published in Q1 journals. I have Y citations and my h-index is Z. Is this the right information that defines my path? Are these the correct measurements of my research? I hope not. Even so, I am the one who has written these phrases and nobody has forced me to write them like that. The why goes with the following essay.

#6. Socialization, Identity and Psychological Resilience among Arab-Palestinian and Jewish High School Students in Israel
Yamama Abd Al-Qadr, Yaacov J Katz
The aim of the present research study was to compare the relationships between identity (nationalistic, religious and ethnic), socialization processes (home and school), and psychological resilience (self-esteem, self-efficacy, and well-being) of Arab-Palestinian and Jewish high school students in Israel. 317 tenth and eleventh grade students (163 Arab-Palestinian students including 93 girls and 70 boys; and 154 Jewish students including 70 girls and 84 boys) participated in the study. The research was conducted in two state Arab-Palestinian schools, one state secular-Jewish school, and one state religious-Jewish school. The research employed a series of questionnaires. First, a background questionnaire was used to collect basic data about the students; a second questionnaire assessed the nationalistic and religious socialization of the Jewish teenagers and the nationalistic, religious, and ethnic socialization of the Arab-Palestinian adolescents; a third questionnaire assessed the salience of national and religious identity among...

#7. Using Facebook to Increase Students’ Science Motivation Levels
Alan Robert White
STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) skills are needed to solve various global problems and for innovation and economic prosperity. It has been recognized that many students have low motivation levels when it comes to learning science subjects. Previous studies have suggested that social media may have potential uses in education. This study examines whether Facebook could be used to increase student motivation levels towards science. Data was collected from 166 non-science major students taking a physics course at a Thai university. The results of the study suggest Facebook has the potential to increase students’ motivation levels. Higher rates of Facebook participation were also found to result in higher levels of motivation.

#8. Evaluating Access, Quality, and Inverted Admissions in MOOC-Based Blended Degree Pathways: A Study of the MIT Supply Chain Management MicroMasters
Joshua Littenberg-Tobias, Justin Reich
Many higher education institutions have begun offering opportunities to earn credit for in-person courses through massive open online courses (MOOCs). This mixed-methods study examines the experiences of students participating in one of the first iterations of this trend: a blended professional master's degree program that admitted students based on performance in MOOC-based online courses. We found that the blended master's program attracted a cohort of highly educated mid-career professionals from developed countries who were looking for more flexible alternatives to traditional graduate programs. Success in the online courses was correlated with higher levels of prior formal education and effective use of learning strategies. Students who enrolled in the blended graduate program reported being academically prepared for their coursework and had higher GPAs (3.86, p<0.01) than students in the residential program (3.75). The findings of this study suggest that the technological affordances of MOOC-based online and blended...

#9. Differences in Students’ Science Self-Efficacy Levels when Using Facebook as a Learning Tool
Alan Robert White
Science skills are needed for innovation, economic prosperity and to solve global problems. Many students though have low self-efficacy and confidence levels when learning science subjects. Studies have shown that social media may have benefits when used in education. This study examines whether Facebook could be used as a learning tool to help increase student self-efficacy levels when learning science subjects. Data was collected from 166 non-science major students taking a physics course at a Thai university. The results of the study suggest Facebook when used as a learning tool may have potential for increasing student self-efficacy levels. Higher rates of Facebook participation were also found to result in higher self-efficacy levels.

#10. CALL, Self-access, and Autonomous Learning
Jorge E. Benavides B.
The idea of autonomous learning through a process of self-access learning is a very powerful one since CALL (Computer-Assisted Language Learning) can provide environments which could cope with a large variety of learning possibilities and learning styles. The autonomous computer user is free to choose his own course, topics, and work at his own pace. However, in this approach, high motivation may not necessarily mean learning efficiently. The student may not be very good at selecting his own learning strategy, especially at initial stages. This problem could be alleviated if the introduction of learning autonomy, through self-access learning, is done as a process where the learner is being trained to progressively go from an externally-directed-learning approach to a self-directed learning approach.
