Virtual School Course Design: Accommodating Students with Disabilities

Experts in course design, by contrast, have reported that they feel their work is to design a template of curriculum materials for a general population of students, but that teachers, parents, and on-site mentors must be the ones to individualize for students with special needs, even when other personalization features are embedded in the course (Rice, Mellard, Pace, & Carter, 2016). Thus, while online learning, with its promise of flexibility, holds potential to mitigate multiple dilemmas in providing high quality education to large numbers of students, new challenges are also…

Kennedy (Eds.) Handbook of research on K-12 online and blended learning (pp. 189-206). Pittsburgh, PA: ETC Press.  Students served under federal civil rights laws (i.e., IDEA, Section 504) are entitled to enroll in the full range of online learning environments and receive mandated services.

Designing Spaces for Creativity and Divergent Thinking: Pre-Service Teachers Creating Stop Motion Animation on Tablets

In recent years, tablets have been shown to serve as incredible teaching tools in classrooms around the world.

This qualitative, participatory action research investigated the use of an instructional model that provided minimal instruction in the use of tablets to create stop motion animation movies. This study focused on the themes and patterns that emerged as pre-service teachers integrate a design thinking philosophy as they explore creativity and…

Fighting racism, battling burnout: causes of activist burnout in US racial justice activists

Social movement scholars have identified activist burnout – when the accumulation of stressors associated with activism become so overwhelming they compromise activists’ persistence in their activism – as a threat to movement viability. This phenomenological study on the causes of burnout among racial justice activists in the United States was designed to bolster understandings of burnout and inform strategies for sustaining racial justice movements. Thirty racial justice activists who had experienced burnout were interviewed. They described four primary burnout causes:…

Transmedia Storytelling as a Framework for Effective Blended Learning Design

This article discusses the use of Transmedia Storytelling in blended learning, based on recent research and the need for an effective learning design. The interest in digital storytelling for educational purposes has increased over the last few years, with researchers also identifying key pedagogical features of new media that make these inherently powerful learning tools. Stories may have high impact in the development of resources for blended learning, and could well replace some forms of traditional teaching (such as expository lectures) but more likely they will remain just an…

The Tyranny of Writing in Language and Society

Preface and Introduction to the edited volume *The Tyranny of Writing: Ideologies of the Written Word* (eds. Constanze Weth & Kasper Juffermans), Bloomsbury (Advances in Sociolinguistics), 2018. The book is an attempt to make sense of the written word and its powerful role in society. By using the word ‘tyranny’ we take an explicitly critical stance towards writing inspired above all by Saussure’s argument against writing as an object of linguistic research and what he called ‘la tyrannie de la lettre’. He denounced writing as an imperfect, distorted image of speech that obscures our…

Toulmin’s Rhetorical Logic: What’s the Warrant for Warrants?

Argument, on virtually any model, is a movement, from reasons to claims; the basic problem for argument theory lies in distinguishing, in general terms, between legitimate and illegitimate moves. Stephen Toulmin’s distinctive account is intended to be a procedural account of argument, as an alternative to the usual formalization of reasoning. A theory of reasoning must define a principle that allows movement; in formal logic this principle is represented by the material conditional.

“Introduction: Having a Moment Four Decades in the Making,” Routledge History of Queer America (Routledge: 2018)

In this introduction to the Routledge History of Queer America (2018), the editor describes how the past four decades of published historical scholarship on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) and queer US history have led to a present moment in which that history has a prominent place in American public, civil, and academic life. After discussing key early texts in the field, the editor explores some of the trends and challenges currently facing queer history and its practitioners. Finally, he summarizes the main arguments of the 28 chapters, broken down into three parts,…
