Results across three years for 21 immersion schools show that the average...

Educational outcomes and research from 1:1 computing settingsBebell, D., & O’Dwyer, L. M. - 2010 - Journal of Technology, Learning, and Assessment, 9(1), 5–13
Despite the growing interest in 1:1 computing initiatives, relatively little empirical research has focused on the outcomes of these investments. The current special edition of the Journal of Technology and Assessment presents four empirical studies of K-12 1:1 computing programs and one review of key themes in the conversation about 1:1 computing among advocates and critics. In this introduction to our 1:1 special edition, we synthesize across the studies and discuss the emergent themes....

Childhood obesity is a serious public health problem, resulting from energy imbalance (when the intake of energy is greater than the amount of energy expended through physical activity). Numerous health authorities have identified policy interventions as promising strategies for creating population-wide improvements in physical activity. This case study focuses on energy expenditure through physical activity (with a particular emphasis on school-based physical education [PE])....
Sustainable tourism industry development in sub-Saharan Africa: Consequences of foreign hotels for local employmentFortanier, F., & Wijk, J. van - 2010 - International Business Review
Abstract While foreign investment in the tourism industry is often considered important in stimulating sustainable development in least developed countries, empirical evidence is still scarce and ambiguous. Focusing on the social (employment) dimension of sustainable development, this paper analyses how foreign firms in the hotel industry influence the quantity of local employment (number of jobs) and its quality (skills). Using interview data with managers of 123 foreign and locally owned...
Secondary Prevention in an RTI Model: A Step Toward Academic RecoveryFriedman, E. K. - 2010 - The Reading Teacher, 64(3), 207–210
The secondary level of a Response to Intervention system, sometimes referred to as Tier II intervention, targets students who experience inadequate response to good classroom instruction for 10–15 weeks of validated small-group instruction. The twin purposes of secondary prevention are to (a) prevent the development of long-term reading difficulty and (b) assess whether a more intensive level of intervention (i.e., tertiary prevention, sometimes delivered under the auspices of special...
