As a perhaps unusual aside for a research article like this, it should be noted here that two of the three authors of this article had responsibilities for in-service teacher professional development in Mexico at the same time they were writing this article. That these ideas were in circulation in 2018 can be illustrated by the fact that your authors, pursuant to their regular professional responsibilities, saw these ideas as part of their remit.

The time period considered incorporates publications from 2010 to 2017 , but it is important to note that after 2016 , with a shift in power of political parties within several governments throughout the region, large programs of technological adoption in schools tended to decline with the exception of the Plan Ceibal in Uruguay, which has now been active for more than 10 years. 3 From this...

...A considerable output from Argentina and other countries, for example, starting in the 1980s and more prolifically in this century, focuses on teachers’ narrative documentation of their experiences and knowledge. The adoption of these narratives as tools for the professional training of teachers and the circulation of knowledge within the guild suggest new ways of connecting research to teacher training and the general improvement of teaching practice. This approach generates new and important research questions about its potential to effectively foster...

Through this series of practices, the teacher narrators inscribe their accounts within a network of readings among peers, receive comments on their texts, and offer commentary on the texts of others, with the end goal of collaborating throughout the process of pedagogical documentation and enriching their initial accounts. For this reason, the activities carried out during pedagogical editing are decisive within...

So great is the combined circulation of these newspapers that it is estimated that they enter daily one home out of four in of the United States. . . . Newspaper publishing is a business, and newspapers are printed for profit. What they contain is essentially what the publishers think the American people want. ( Rugg, 1931 , p. 333).

...approach to any reform movement. Dewey viewed universities as laboratory spaces for social repair and experimentation. At the end of “Theory into Practice” (1904a), Dewey believed that within “the next decade,” more normal schools would become four-year bachelor’s-degree-granting programs. Dewey was hopeful that extending the teacher preparation program from two to four years, within a model of a laboratory school in conjunction with a university, would provide adequate time for preservice teachers to develop deep understandings of theory integrated with their...

...Americans receive the message that education is workforce preparation. Whether this is framed politically as the need for the United States to be globally economically competitive or as a parental admonition to do well in school so you can get a good job, the basic premise is nearly unquestioned. However, a historical consideration of curriculum reveals four distinct approaches, each based on diverse perspectives on why we have schools and what their work should be accomplishing ( Schubert, 1986 ). Proponents of each might be considered activists for the...

...of the genre as a foundational moment for the field of science fiction criticism. Suvin ( 1972 , p. 372) began by noting: The importance of science fiction (SF) in our time is on the increase. First, there are strong indications that its popularity in the leading industrial nations (USA, USSR, UK, Japan) has risen sharply over the last 100 years, regardless of local and short-range fluctuations. SF has particularly affected some key strata of modern society such as the college graduates, young writers, and general readers appreciative of new sets of...

For many, however, despite the complex dynamics of its usage, the metaphor is still useful ( Baumgardner, 2011 ) in providing a “discursive legacy” for feminist movements that resonates with activists and the general public alike ( Reger, 2014 , p. 194). 2. Although an in-depth discussion of the reconceptualization movement is beyond the scope of this article, it is important to note here that in the late 1960s and early 1970s reconceptualist curriculum, scholars began...

Thus, she works toward a utopian and relational notion of hope as labor and commitment to sociopolitical reform.

...20). He points out the circulation of these representations across colonial peripheries and centers and how these help in, among other things, maintaining standard language ideologies. Standard language cultures, or the belief in a correct or canonical form of language, can be cited as a widespread influence among people in general and also seen to be part of the school curricula. It influences conceptions about people and languages among teachers, students, and the linguists and researchers studying the languages. It is important to note that the repercussions...

As the researchers note, “Multiple sexual partners, by all accounts virtually universal among boys, was said to be an important defining feature of ‘being a man’” ( Wood & Jewkes, 2001 , p. 321).

By comparison, recent emphasis on STEAM has largely been associated with industry partners, agencies, and practitioners in the creative industries ( CLA, 2014 ), arguing for the value of the arts for both the...
