The epidemic of COVID-19 has disrupted education in over 150 nations and harmed 1.6 billion children. As a result, a number of nations have introduced some type of remote learning employing technology and students were encouraged to engage in self-determined learning. Many Educational Institutions that previously resisted changing their traditional pedagogical method were forced to use online teaching and learning exclusively. Internet-educated kids who have never encountered this issue are...

Helping teachers become more effective in the classroom is a high priority for educators and policymakers. A growing body of evidence suggests that individualized coaching focused on general teaching practices can improve teachers' instruction and student achievement. However, little is known about the benefits of specific approaches to coaching, including who is doing the coaching, how coaches observe teachers' instruction, and how or how often coaches provide feedback to teachers. This study...

ERIC ED619964: Using Remote Communication Tools to Facilitate Student Engagement, Language Learning, and Cross-Disciplinary Professional Development before, during, and after the Pandemic: The Newcastle Calls Project 2020 as a Case Study Aimed at fostering student engagement using remote communication tools to restructure language teaching, the "Newcastle Calls" project was piloted in early 2020, providing Newcastle University's Italian language students at intermediate level with a chance to be involved in the production of authentic material. Thanks to technology, they crossed space barriers, interviewed Italian researchers in the Antarctic and an Italian theatre actor virtually, discussing the researchers' life, climate change, acting, and the effects of Italy's COVID-19 lockdown. One of these interviews was made into a pilot documentary with Italian and English subtitles with the collaboration of Master of Arts (MA) translation and film students. This chapter explores how students benefitted from the experience, evaluates the project's potential to facilitate students' transition to professional life after university, and the facilitators' experience using remote communication tools before and during COVID-19, reflecting on the advantages and challenges of implementing the use of up-to-date technology in language learning.

Parallel texts in the form of Graded Readers have a long tradition in foreign language learning. When presenting the translation in the reader's first language alongside the target language text, parallel texts offer access to literary texts, to their stories, characters, plot developments, and cultural content, without the need for time-consuming vocabulary or grammar searches, which would otherwise distract from the enjoyment of the texts. This chapter will describe and evaluate a teaching...

Second language listening (L2 listening) is taken for granted in the language classroom. The time allocated to it is often minimal, and it does not always aim at developing listening skills. It serves other purposes, such as testing comprehension and/or introducing a different activity. Graham (2017) noted that L2 listening is done in the language classroom, but it is not always taught. This paper shows that it is relatively uncomplicated to teach learners how to listen in the language...

This Focus On uses data from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) to showcase that, as a group, recipients of physics bachelor's degrees tend to do well on two prominent standardized tests for medical school and law school admission. Although only a small percent of the physics bachelor's degree recipients each year (2-4%) pursue these two career paths, a physics degree provides a solid foundation for those making that choice.

ERIC ED619283: Leading the World in Discovery and Innovation, STEM Talent Development and the Delivery of Benefits from Research. NSF Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2022-2026 NSF's new Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2022-2026 was released on March 28, 2022. To achieve NSF's vision of "A nation that leads the world in science and engineering research and innovation, to the benefit of all, without barriers to participation," the Plan lays out four strategic goals. The first, "Empower STEM talent to fully participate in science and engineering," aims to accelerate the advancement of discovery and learning and, in a world in which work is increasingly reliant upon scientific and technological skills, ensure that all citizens share in the benefits that flow from research. NSF will promote inclusion in the research community and STEM workforce, access to STEM learning and training, and widespread STEM literacy. The second strategic goal, "Create new knowledge about our universe, our world and ourselves," aims to advance knowledge through investments in ideas, people, and infrastructure, and to advance the practice of research. The third strategic goal, "Benefit society by translating knowledge into solutions," focuses on delivering benefits from research by advancing discovery and accelerating innovation that address societal challenges, as well as cultivating a global S&E community based on shared values and strategic cooperation. The fourth goal, "Excel at NSF operations and management," includes strategies to attract, retain, and empower a talented and diverse workforce and continually to improve agency operations. NSF's new Strategic Plan lays out a vision for accelerating research and innovation. The Plan includes examples of discoveries that NSF-supported researchers have made, and the impacts these have had on the Nation's economy and well-being. It also includes examples of exciting new opportunities for research at the frontiers of science and engineering. With the support of the American people, NSF-funded researchers will continue to transform the world with their ingenuity and creativity, providing new knowledge and innovations that will propel our economy and enhance our lives.
