  • This study reports the results of analyzing the learning opportunities about the plane figures provided by the first and second grade mathematics textbooks. The plane figures that students learn during this period are important in that it serves as the basis for the later geometric education. With assumptions that mathematics learning is related to the problem of meaning and that meaning-related activity can be viewed as a symbolic activity, it adopts and uses the perspectives and tools of semiotics to analyze the learning opportunities provided by the mathematics textbook. The analysis of the semiotic process of the textbook activities revealed the significance of learning opportunities and helped to distinguish the seemingly similar learning opportunities. Based on the results of the analysis, I discussed the link between learning opportunities provided by grade 1 and grade 2 mathematics textbooks. Finally, the paper concludes with suggestions and conclusions and suggestions for further research.

  • Seeing the elapsed time as a quantity that can be measured is quite challenging for students while making students see it is also challenging for teachers. Tuning on these challenges, this article reports on what learning opportunities elementary teachers provide when they teach elapsed time focusing on quantitative objectification. I observed three mathematics classrooms where the elapsed time was taught by three elementary teachers and did a narrative analysis on the instructions. All three teachers utilized certain tools to support students access to the elapsed time as a quantity. They appropriated various quantitative attributes of the tool. In the case of the analog clock, one teacher tried to quantification the elapsed time with the number of minute hand's turning, while the other teacher indicated the distance of minute hand's moving. One teacher represented the elapsed time with the longitudinal attribute of the time band. Standing on the findings, the didactical implications of various attempts for quantitative objectification of the elapsed time implemented were discussed.

  • The purpose of this study is to investigate how pre-service secondary mathematics teachers modify mathematical tasks from a textbook and learning opportunities they have during the task modification. In the pursuit of this purpose, tasks was selected from derivative units in a textbook and five pre-service teachers was asked to modify the tasks. The findings from analysis are as follows. First, the cognitive demands of modified tasks were maintained or higher than those of the originals. Pre-service teachers' tendency toward conceptual understanding of derivative seems to make the result. Second, task modification provided a lot of learning opportunities for pre-service teachers. They tried to know intention of curriculum and textbook, realized the importance of predicting students' responses, and had opportunities for cooperation and reflective thinking.

Policy Reform of Special Education Technology to Expand the Learning Opportunities of the Disabilities (장애학생의 학습기회 확대를 위한 특수교육정보화 정책 개선 방안)

  • To improve access to the learning opportunities of students with disabilities, this study is to identify the potential of the information communication technology in education for the disabilities and to suggest the policy reforms for the special education technology. To answer it, the related literatures of other developed countries and Korea were collected and analyzed by desirability and feasibility as criteria. From the view of the desirability, this study found that the policies of special education in Korea were still regarded as subsidiary and separated from the general students. Moreover, from the view of the feasibility, the law and financial support was relatively insufficient than other countries to implement the policy more effectively and stably. To solve these problems, this study suggests the policy reforms in Korea as five areas and seven tasks.

  • The concern of this paper is to provide learning opportunities to participate in the class of statistics with interest for the students who dislike mathematics and especially find difficulty in understanding statistics. The students were encouraged to arrange data collected in their daily life by the use of spreadsheet program and to interpret the result of data with graphs, so that they could have a great interest in statistics and make steady progress in their voluntary study. The further study to use computers in teaching mathematics should be continued and recommended in the rapid age of information and knowledge-based.

  • Although student-centered teaching practices have been advocated in mathematics education reform, implementing them at the classroom level remains challenging. This exploratory case study examined two unevenly successful student-centered approaches to see how teachers understand and characterize reform, and to articulate issues in implementing reform ideas. The comparison and contrast between the classrooms showed similar classroom social norms but dramatically different mathematical practices. This affords the possibility of exploring the challenges of reform for teachers and other personnel who are attempting to move teaching practices towards the student-centered ideals.

  • This study aims to investigate the different opinions about feedback given to high level Middle School students about their writing.18 students in the Gifted Program participated in the study. They were divided into three groups through their presurvey answers according to their language learning opportunities and genders. Students language self-assessment was compared with achievement as well. Three times of students' written work were collected. They then received feedback from the teacher and their two peers respectively. With the teachers' and peers' feedback, they completed their final draft. The study then examines how much the students take feedback practically from the different feedback givers. Examples of formative and corrective feedback were arranged to find out the differences in the students practice when giving and taking feedback. These Gifted class students showed that they didn't care much about who gave them the feedback, instead they cared more about how much language competence they presumed the feedback giver had. Implications of the findings are discussed and future study is suggested.

  • For human beings, language is the most important means of communication. Bloom and Lahey see successful language development as an interaction between form, content, and use. Language knowledge is a social phenomenon produced in a socio-cultural environment through interaction. Teachers have traditionally concentrated on the structure of their student's writing rather than on the message. If writing is to be seen as an interactive social process between humans, it is the content which is responded to. Language acquisition could be a major problem for hearing-impaired children and their acquisition of written language is characteristically problematic. This study is to search the use of microcomputers in written conversational methods, which enable the hearing-impaired student to hear their conversations in a visual form and which usefully extend their written language learning opportunities.
