Abstract

Poverty is a complex social problem, which has always attracted attention. 2020 is the year of a decisive victory for the Chinese government to alleviate poverty. Education plays a fundamental role in the fight against poverty and is the foundation for eradicating poverty and stabilizing poverty alleviation. Based on the literature in the CNKI database, this study took “poverty- alleviation by supporting education” as the subject, and conducted a bibliometric analysis of the publications in the field of China’s poverty alleviation by education during 1988-2020. Through analyzing the research time distribution and keyword, the results of poverty-alleviation by supporting education were sorted out and analyzed around three hotspots: the main framework of poverty alleviation, key models, and technical support. It is proposed that the research and development of China’s poverty-alleviation by supporting education should pay more attention to its evaluation and sublimation of empirical theory.

Abstract

The teaching strategy based on the case study guide is based on the case study guided, with teachers as the mainstay, students as the main body, and teacher-student working together to complete the teaching tasks, which is in line with Chinese education characteristics of localized teaching strategies. This teaching strategy advocates coordinating the relationship between various elements of teaching, so that teachers, students, and teaching materials maintain a coordinated state. We herein prospect through a case of a middle school in Jiangsu, China to explain the basic content of the teaching strategy, and analyze the practical exploration of the teaching strategy based on the protocol-guided study.

Abstract

Autonomous learning not only requires students to self-monitor and adjust their cognition, emotions, motivation, behavior, and environment, but also requires the creation of external environments and the provision and support of teaching strategies. Protocol-guided learning is a localized teaching strategy in the mainland of China. This study sampled students from two municipal middle schools in Zhenjiang City, Jiangsu Province as research subjects, and used education experiments to find out the role of students’ autonomous learning in improving student performance, and observed how to promote students’ autonomous learning through protocol-guided learning as well. A total of 612 students from the first grade of two schools in Zhenjiang City, Jiangsu Province, China were selected as the subjects. After excluding extreme values, a total of 196 experimental samples and 201 control samples were obtained. By analyzing the experimental data of the experimental group and the control group, it is concluded that a well-designed protocol-guided learning teaching can become an effective carrier for students’ autonomous learning. By promoting students’ autonomous learning, students’ performance can be effectively improved. At the same time, we further found that in the three subjects of Chinese, Mathematics, and English, students’ autonomous learning has the most obvious effect on Chinese learning.

Abstract

To improve children’s academic achievements, parents often try to provide them with adequate nutrition or/and send them to attend extracurricular tutoring classes. The effect of extracurricular tutoring on students’ performance has been well explored, whereas no rigorous empirical study was conducted to observe the relationship between breakfast and students’ academic performance. Besides, little empirical evidence has been presented to compare the effect of breakfast and that of extracurricular tutoring on students’ academic achievements. This study fills this gap by adopting the multiple linear regression model and Shapley Value Decomposition to analyze the academic quality monitoring data of 50,516 Year-3 students and 83,505 Year-8 students in Jiangsu, China. The results showed that both breakfast and extracurricular tutoring can improve students’ grades, and breakfast was superior to the tutoring in efficacy. This conclusion is of great significance for planning family education strategies scientifically and improving family education efficiently. It is necessarily convincible for parents and educators to rationally understand the role of extracurricular tutoring and pay enough attention to breakfast in improving students’ performance.

Abstract

International student mobility has been becoming varied and complex. Chinese higher education institutions (HEIs) host about 492,185 international students in 2018, sharing 10 percent of globally mobile students. The purpose of the study was to promote understanding of factors that influence international students choose to earn academic degree in Chinese HEIs. The econometric approach was applied to identify factors that influence international student mobility in China. The total inflow of international students, the inflow of students from both developing and developed countries, and international students with undergraduate, master’s and doctoral academic programs are taken as predicted variables. The political, economic, academic, socio-cultural factors were chosen as explanatory variables. From the sample data of 60 countries of origin, our data covers more than 89% of total international students earn academic degrees in Chinese HEIs during the period 2007 to 2016. The results indicated some differences in determinants of undergraduate students, master’s students and doctoral students from developing and developed countries choose to study in China. The economic development level between China and the countries of origin and their bilateral trade relations are important economic factors that affect international students, and the impact on undergraduate students is more significant. The Chinese government scholarship policies and mutual recognition of academic degrees have been effectively promoted inward international students. Compared with undergraduate students, the academic ranking of Chinese universities has more significant influences on master’s students and doctoral students. The geographical distance and cultural distance between China and the countries of origin are important social and cultural factors. International students from developed countries are more influenced by cultural distance factor.

Abstract

We set up experimental stories that violated and abided by domain rules, negative and positive side effects, and selected 850 middle school students to read stories and answer questions to explore the characteristics of the juvenile Knobe effect under cognitive conditions in three single social rules. The results showed that: (1) When the teenagers violate the domain rules, the Knobe effect is exhibited in the three types of events, and in the case of complying with the domain rules, only the Knobe effect occurs in the personal field, and (2) The domain rules are observed. Under the positive side effects, boys are more inclined to judge the intentions of positive side effects in the field of ethics and customs than in girls. (3) With the development of age, the juveniles’ judgments on the side effects are also inverted U-shaped, which is consistent with the development of moral judgment age. The conclusion is that adolescents have only an incomplete Knobe effect in a single-field event, and the specific performance is influenced by domain rules and domain types.

Abstract

Under the paradigm of qualitative research, we explored the process and reasons for the nine technologists to abandon the high-paying positions of the company to enter the middle-level teachers. Based on the interview data, we used the rooted theory to establish the motivation for the transfer of the transferred teachers. The study found that “reasons of separation” and “individual needs” are the two main categories that constitute “transfer motivation”; “transfer motivation” under the influence of “preconditions”, “catalytic factors” and “obstructive factors” and “teacher occupation” The advantage “matches; if the match is successful, the idea of “deciding to become a secondary school teacher” is generated and put into action. Through cross-case analysis, it outlined the career transition profile of the transferred teachers, including the “family fulfillment” type, which is driven by “free time”, the “start another stove” type, which is driven by “burnout”, and is dominated by “personal ideals” motivated “long-term planned” type. Based on the results of this research, we proposed to contract and recruit enterprise technical talents in secondary vocational schools, and propose the cooperation channel between schools and enterprises as the recruitment channel, and establish the support policy and salary incentive system strategy for enterprise personnel.

Abstract

Jilin Li’s concept of situational teaching creatively combines students’ activities in both emotion and cognition, greatly mobilizes students’ enthusiasm for learning, and explores an effective path for students’ happy and efficient learning. Based on Li’s theory of situational teaching, we created a real language teaching environment as much as possible allowing students to understand the information and language materials expressed by the situation in the process of experiencing the situation, focusing on how to study effectively in the English class. The situational teaching method is used to stimulate students’ interest in English learning and to cultivate students’ independent creativity, so that they can master the four basic language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing, and finally form comprehensive language application ability.

Abstract

With the popularity of mobile learning and the rapid development of internet, e-book bag has received increasing attention. However, recent studies rarely analyze the functional characteristics of E-book bag and its influence on teachers’ instructing and students’ learning from the perspective of classroom teaching application. In this regard, this study selected 20 sections of live e-book bag teaching video recorded in Changchun, China, and analyzed the functionality of e-book bag using Video Analysis on its following four dimensions: situation creation, knowledge construction, collaborative communication, and evaluation feedback. We concluded that e-book bag has three major functions: “resources and toolkits”, “teaching interaction”, and “teaching evaluation”. Meanwhile, it provides support for active interaction between teacher and students, between students, and between students and learning contents as well. Therefore, the use of e-book bag satisfies students’ individualized learning, supports the communication and cooperation between teacher and students, and helps students to construct knowledge in depth.

Abstract

Currently, the English teaching at elementary schools in China is generally lack of training of students’ thinking ability. However, critical thinking is the most important and valuable ability for learning. In order to develop students’ critical thinking skill, teachers introduced problem-based learning into English teaching at elementary schools by taking three stages as setting prior-, during-, and post-reading as an example, explored students’ critical thinking ability through creating a questioning atmosphere, setting up a thinking platform, and improving the quality of problems. Our practical performance showed that problem-based learning can significantly improve students’ thinking quality.
