    This study maps instructional support and learning outcomes of argumentation game-based learning. For this systematic review, 29 publications dating from 2000 through 2019 were studied to highlight the foci of this field of research. Although these studies reported effects of game-based learning on learning outcomes and instructional supports on argumentation skills, none of the publications reported specific instructional support and game elements associated with the learning outcomes. Modeling, reflection and feedback were the most commonly reported instructional support of argumentation game-based learning. Feedback, challenge, and collaboration were the most commonly reported game elements of argumentation game-based learning. In additi

    A cultural- Historical Analysis of “childhood” and “Early childhood Education” in contemporary Iran

    Ebrahim Talaee
    Journal Paper , 2019 January , {Pages }


    This chapter critically reviews the creation and development of the concepts “childhood” and “ECE” in contemporary Iran. Childhood is a cultural concept so the time and place give a different interpretation to it. Iranian history in the past 150 years has experienced social, political and cultural changes which have impacted the way children and childhood were understood and acted. Using a cultural-historical lens, the author intends to review and analyze these interpretations of childhood and the way they have affected the education of young children, parenting, the image of children in the society and the agency or passiveness of children in the community they live in.

    Re-Conceptualization of "Digital Divide" among Primary School Children in an Era of Saturated Access to Technology

    Ebrahim Talaee, Omid Noroozi
    Journal PaperInternational Electronic Journal Of Elementary Education , Volume 12 , Issue 1, 2019 January , {Pages 27-35 }


    This study conceptualizes" digital divide" among school children. The concept of digital divide is elaborated on the basis of the layers of technology adoption such as" access"," effective use" and" the social envelope" around children's use of home computers. In this study, a theoretical framework of" digital divide" is proposed consisting of social, economic, individual and cultural aspects of the digital divide among children. Based on this framework, we argue that inequalities among children can strongly be affected by the social/cultural environment around home computing ie parents’ computing practices at home and the home learning environment. As a result, we argue that access to a supportive ‘social envelope’is the area in whic

    The purpose of this study is understanding the Personal Practical Knowledge (PPK) of teachers which has been done through qualitative method. Understanding PPK helps us to understand why teachers act in a specific way. In this regards, reflecting on their personal and professional narratives also help to improve their practice. This study was conducted along with 13 teachers in a non-profit primary school in Tehran. The results of the study indicate teachers’ rich knowledge of factors affecting success of the teaching profession. However, the data obtained from the observations show the difference between what the teacher describes as a successful teacher and effective teaching, and what happens in their practice. The dynamic and contextu
