Austria
Marion Hopfgartner is a Speaker, Author, Education and Life Transformer and Entrepreneur.
Her business career started at the age of 19, after her degree as an educator and preschool
teacher – when she led a Day-Care-Institution. Very soon, she moved up the career in Personnel
Management working in a social Non-for-Profit Association that had 1400 employees. This was
possible by having a fantastic Mentor on her side, who guided her step by step.
Already at the age of 22, she was a Board Member of a Non-for-Profit LLC. As one of the Board
Members – she focused on Personnel Management and on Social Projects. At that time, she also
started her career as an Adult-Trainer and Speaker – working together with a local Institution in
holistic health care.
At the age of 30 – she left these businesses behind and started to work internationally. This
Mentor invited her to build up an International Network of Organizations in the field of
Alternative Health Care and Training. Together with a team, they developed the training material,
training schedules organizational structure, standardizing procedures; they set up operating
Boards and trained more than 350 Instructors internationally. For more than 7 years she worked
hand in hand to grow these international organizations.
As her Personal Assistant – Marion Hopfgartner also learned all basic needs to establish not only
a small business but an International Network of Organizations. Since her Coach died in March
2016 and the different Boards took over the leading function of the individual organizations –
she now focuses back on growing her own Companies. In a speed time of 4 months, she got them
set for International Work and grew an incredibly successful team.
While working in this network of organizations – she constantly received requests to mentor
educational institutions. As consultant and coach, she upgraded many in different areas,
restructured their way of operation, but also started to implement modern education in some of
these institutions. While she was heavily focused on working with her Coach – she still also
established many successes in this area.

Dictogloss: A Learner-Centered Technique to Focus on Grammar in a Meaningful Context
Berrin Karasac
Department of English, School of Foreign Languages, Anadolu University, Eskiayhir, Turkey
Abstract
Many students have difficulty about producing sentences with the grammar they learn although
they have no problem doing filling in the blank exercises or multiple-choice tasks. It is usually the
result of teacher-centered grammar teaching in limited and isolated bits. Dictogloss is a teaching
technique which provides a classroom environment where all students are actively involved and
collaborate in a meaningful task which help them notice what they need to learn. They are to
reproduce a text focusing on grammar in a meaningful context. It promises both developing
language accuracy and learner autonomy.
In this study, the aim is to analyze the effectiveness of dictogloss technique taking into consideration
its theoretical and practical implications on teaching and learning. I teach an hour with dictogloss
technique to three different pre-intermediate groups and I get feedback from them through a ten-
question survey.

How to Use Pinterest for Promoting Productive Skills in EFL Classrooms
Zerrin Gunaydin
Department of English, School of Foreign Languages, Anadolu University, Eskisehir, Turkey
Abstract
Learner autonomy and teaching productive skills are two of the biggest challenges ELT
practitioners face to cover maximum outcome in a minimum time. Various methods and techniques
are suggested for the most effective results, yet little has been proposed for an effective medium.
Teenagers and young adults, who are the majority of English learners, spend a significant part of
their time on the Internet, especially on social networking sites. Pinterest is one of the most popular
social networking sites that can easily be adapted for EFL classrooms. It allows users to share and
discover interests by posting/pinning images on boards. One can create image collections under
various categories such as hobbies, events, holidays, places, food, etc. This makes it a priceless tool
for English learners to learn new vocabulary and practice speaking and writing in the most
effective and motivating way. This study suggests how to use Pinterest for promoting productive
skills in EFL classrooms in a way that makes students willing to take these skills even outside the
classroom autonomously.

considerable emphasis on new computer applications required in business and management
environments. The challenges confronting Information Administration lecturers include large
classes, the entry students’ lack of computer practice knowledge and skills, the lack of adequate
resources for the practical programme, and the fact that computer technology is an ever-changing
field of study. The continuously changing field of information computer technology requires that
higher education researchers undertake further research in order to remain up-to-date to prepare
students for the dynamic workplace.

Becoming an Inclusive Practitioner: Trainees Experiences of Inclusive Practices During Teaching
Practice
William Nketsia
School of Education,Western Sydney University, Sydney, Australia
Abstract
Teaching practice has been found to significantly improve trainees’ knowledge and understanding
of inclusive teaching practices and special educational needs (SEN). This study sought to determine
trainees’ experiences of inclusive practices during teaching practice. A survey of 171 final year
trainees, 57 college supervisors and 77 school-based mentors from three of the 38 public colleges of
education in Ghana revealed that the teaching practice does not promote enough inclusive practical
training and the mentors do not model enough inclusive practices for trainees. The study found
infinitesimal co-teaching practices among trainees and the entire teaching practice had a significant
impact on only minority of trainees’ beliefs and attitudes towards pupils with SEN. The
implications of the findings for the improvement of teaching practice to effectively train teachers in
areas of SEN and inclusive education in the colleges of education were discussed.

was developed program on Surdoinformatics for deaf students studying orthopedic dentistry at
university which was intended to form of general cultural and professional competencies,
strengthen learning motivation, and facilitate their adaptation in the social environment. For the
formation of communicative skills required in the work process, training for the deaf students was
conducted together with hearing students. The authors of the program tried to be guided not only
by the existing limitations of this category of students, but also to take into account their abilities
and potential. The aim was to create favorable conditions for their professional and personal
growth. The goals of training were achieved in several stages, with the gradual complication of
learning tasks. The use of computer equipment, the variety of offered types of training activities
increased the interest of students in the studied subject, gave the learning process positive
emotional colouring, developed creativity of students, reduced fear in problem situations, formed
communicative culture, developed a reflection, raised opportunities for self-realization, self-
knowledge, increased activity of students. Working on the computer, students acquired the skills to
formalize and structure information, disappeared the feeling of discrimination in communicating
with hearing students. This was facilitated by multimodal presentation of information at a
convenient pace for each student, computer simulation of manual operations, traditional classroom
and distance learning, the presence of feedback to the coach. The developed didactic materials take
into account the zone of proximal development of each student. Set of computer tests allow to assess
their knowledge, skills and performance potential.

A Clear and Present Trust: Distance Learning Assessment and the Academia Perspective
Khaled K. M. Alhaw
Social/Education, Al Sahel Association for Development, Palestine
Abstract
Higher Education systems are currently experiencing a new challenge as distance learning through
the internet seems to attract the interest of worldwide prospective students. The Massive Open
Online Courses (MOOCs) are the frontrunners of this online massive approach to formal education
but a concern that is present, endangering their success, is the reliability of assessment and grading
of such courses. This affects the interest and motivation of the students on such educational systems
when they have education as the leitmotif for a profession. As society widely accepts orthodox
Academia as the paradigm of sound assessment, especially regarding professional areas such as
Medicine or Engineering, the perspective of the Academia should influence the societal trust on the
online grading methodologies. A recent study explored the general perception of orthodox
Academia regarding the most common online grading methodologies used in MOOCs and the
‘comfort zone’ of including such methodologies on orthodox courses. Departing from those results,
this work explores how trustworthy those online methodologies are to Medical and Biomedical
Professors from orthodox Academia, in which circumstances would they be willing to use such
methods and the constraints they consider mandatory in order to assure the soundness of
evaluation of their students, the recognition of the institution as valid evaluator, and the social
acceptance of future medical and biomedical professionals.

Abstract
Introduction
The HIV virus is currently destroying all facets of African life. It therefore is imperative that a new
holistic form of health education and accessible treatment be implemented in African public health
policy which improves dissemination of prevention and treatment programs, while maintaining the
cultural infrastructure.
Drawing on government and NGO reports, as well as other documentary sources, this paper
examines the nature of current efforts and the state of health care practices in Africa.
I review access to modern health care and factors which inhibit local utilization of these resources,
as well as traditional African beliefs about medicine, disease, and healthcare. This review indicates
that a collaboration of western and traditional medical care and philosophy can help slow the
spread of HIV in Africa.
Conclusion
This paper encourages the acceptance and financial support of traditional health practitioners in
this effort owing to their accessibility and affordability and their cultural compatibility with the
community.

Abstract
Many existing studies conducted in Taiwan or other countries are focused on development and
applications of teaching methods, teaching materials, and teaching theories. However, very few are
focused on learning outcome-oriented course design, especially concerning nursing education. The
design and implementation of nursing innovation education are important issues that could lead to
enhancements of learners’ independent creativity. Therefore, in this study a new outcome-oriented
nursing innovation course and strategies for intervention would be developed and implemented to a
sample of nursing students. The nursing students will experience learning activities such as creative
nursing practice, and their learning outcome would be assessed. The first year of this study would
be focused on the following objectives: 1. Plan learning outcomes indicators of the nursing
innovation curriculum (including learning goal, teaching content, teaching strategies, group
discussion and curriculum measurement). 2. Plan and conduct expert validity of multivariate
assessment tools in nursing innovation. The result of first year of the study was established the
education indicators of outcome-oriented nursing innovation course among 18-week course. The
result showed weekly following learning goal, teaching content, teaching strategies, group
discussion and curriculum measurement, using strategies of presentation, video watching and
group discussion in order to made students to perceive and learn innovative nursing skills. Lastly,
this study planned and conducted expert validity analysis of a series of multi-assessment tools using
on outcome-oriented nursing innovation course, including questionnaire of demographic of
students, students’ cognitive load, students’ cognitive processes associated with creativity, students’
learning attitude, students’ learning outcome, and creative production. These assessment tools will
be used in innovation curriculum and related research in future.

African Literature as a weapon against colonialism: Analysis of selected works of Chinua Achebe of
Nigeria
Dr. Mohammed Marzuq Abubakari
Center of Languages, University of Applied Management, Accra, Ghana
Abstract
Decades after independence, many African countries are still nursing the wounds of colonialism.
The effects of this unfortunate situation are threats of dictatorship, economic stagnation, and bad
governance on the continent. An amalgamation of different forces joined hands in the fight to
liberate Africa from colonial dominance. Undeniably, among these forces were African writers who
used their power of literary creativity to complement the onslaught on colonialism. This Paper
examines the role of African Literature in the anti-colonial struggle. In a form of analytics, the
Paper uses a qualitative approach with selected works of Chinua Achebe as a sample. In view of the
nature of the analysis, the purposive sampling technique is adopted. The objective is to remind
ourselves of the need to learn a bitter lesson from our past and to inspire contemporary African
writers to confront the threats of post-colonial dictatorship on the continent. After a review of
related literature and content analysis of the sampled works, the Paper finds that the brain power
exhibited by the author was as effective as the guns of combatants in the anti-colonial war in Congo
and the rehtorics of political activists on the platforms which were mounted as part of the strategies
to liberate Africa from the shackles of colonialism. The Paper concludes that African Literature
really served as a weapon in the fight to dismantle colonialism. Among other things, the Paper
recommends periodic national and continental conversations to rekindle the spirit of African
Literature and to groom young African writers to become ambassadors of democracy and
prosperity on the continent.

analyses. It aims to examine university EFL students' level of English oral self - efficacy. It is a
comparative study focused on sophomore students majoring in Foreign Trade and Civil Aviation
and Cabin Services departments at a state university. The participants in Civil Aviation and Cabin
Services department attend English Speaking Courses and take oral exams while the learners in
Foreign Trade department don't have English Speaking Courses or take oral exams. Also, the level
of self - efficacy was investigated in relation to different components as gender, the dedicated time
of studying English out of school and abroad experience. The researcher has designed English
Speaking Course Syllabus to meet the needs of learners. The oral exams also have been held by
researcher. To perform the aim of the study, English Speaking Self - Efficacy Questionnaire
originally developed by Hairuzila Idrus et al. (2011) and adapted by Liu & China (2013) was
administered to students and qualitative data were collected through semi - structured interviews.
The quantitative data were analyzed by using the software SPSS 20 by means of descriptive
statistics, independent samples T - test and Pearson's Correlations. Qualitative data were examined

Abstract
Favoritism is the deed of favoring an individual or group over others who have similar rights. It is a
common practice in most of the educational institutes. This study attempted to provide an insight
by measuring the effect of teachers’ favoritism on academic sabotage in Pakistan. This correlational
study based on a survey method. A sample of 450 students was selected from the teacher education
institute of Pakistan by using simple random sampling technique. Favoritism was measured via
scale developed by Aydogan (2008) comprised of 28 items which were divided into four factors:
nature of preference, violation of rules, students’ assessment and terms of communication as well as
the academic sabotage was measured through the scale of nine (9) items developed by Harris and
Ogbonna’s in 2006. The items of both scales were adjusted to fit in the educational context of
Pakistan. Descriptive and inferential statistics (t-test, ANOVA, pearson correlation & regression
analysis) were applied to analyze the data. As a result of the study carried out, it was determined

that the teachers’ favoritism was at high level. There was no significant difference in perceptions of
students in terms of gender and age. However, a significant difference was found in the perception
of students regarding their marital status. Moreover, a positive and medium level relation was
determined between favoritism and academic sabotage. It was also concluded that teachers’
favoritism is a significant predictor of academic sabotage. Based on the findings of the study, it is
suggested that policy makers should develop legislation to prevent favoritism in order to make
educational institutes more effective, transparent and productive for the future of nation.

Abstract
Though reading is one of the most important academic tasks encountered by students (Bharutham,
2012), research carried out in the field demonstrates that only a small proportion of students read
for learning purposes (Clump, Bauer, & Breadly, 2004). Algerian students are no exception. This
presentation offers findings from a study that investigated reluctance to read among a group of 30
Master students from the English department at the University of Annaba in Algeria. The method
adopted to examine the students’ perceptions of reading and their unwillingness to read is a
questionnaire extracted from the literature and modified for the purpose of the study. The results
reveal that the students are disinclined to read at university level for a number of reasons related to
themselves as learners, learning atmosphere, teachers and teaching, environmental factors, etc.
This presentation also underlines some pedagogical implications that might be relevant to support
students to read for learning.

Abstract
This study investigates beliefs regarding the nature of mathematics, and teaching and learning
mathematics during transition from pre-service to in-service mathematics teacher. A longitudinal
phenomenological approach was adopted to observe, describe, and analyze the change in the
phenomena in depth. Participants of the study are seven elementary mathematics teachers who
were interviewed as a senior student in teacher education program and in the initial years of
teaching. Data were analyzed by creating their cognitive maps. Results showed that there is no
major change in participants’ beliefs. However, the most of participants stated that they cannot
teach mathematics in their classroom as they believed because of some pedagogical factors such as
their insufficient knowledge of effective mathematics teaching and some contextual factors such as
inadequate instructional time, students’ beliefs regarding mathematics, and expectations of
colleagues, school administrators, and students’ parents.

Abstract
Western society is moving towards an experience society, where experiences are becoming more
important. Today’s consumers are not satisfied with merely a cup of coffee or a haircut. Elements
such as the physical environment, the furniture, the design and atmosphere, are just a few examples
of what affects the complete experience. As part of a development with an increased demand of
experiences, Higher education institutions are becoming arenas where experiences are expected to
be delivered. Today’s students are no longer merely interested in passive lectures focused on
listening and learning, rather they seek activities where they can be engaged and entertained.
Viewing educational institutions as providers of e.g. goods and services, includes the provision of
study programmes, teaching, examination, digital learning management systems and more.
However, it is not given that offering these goods and services are enough to meet the demands of
informed, empowered and dialogue-seeking students. Perhaps more attention can be given to
providing activities that entail co-creation experiences. The aim of this article is to examine the
transition and adaption of higher education to the experience society. The objective is to discuss
how experiences can enhance basis for new ways of conducting lectures. This theoretical paper
reviews literature on the experience economy, and our study discusses the underlying dimensions of
experiencing and co-creation experiences. The study raises questions concerning how these
dimensions can be used in the lecture hall. The study thus contributes to raise the discussion of
whether experiential elements can establish a foundation for a new practice in higher education.
Moreover, the study contributes to a conceptual clarification of how experience economy concepts
are transferrable to an educational sphere.

Abstract
Nowadays, technology use is increasing day by day in terms of health, agriculture, industry and
entertainment sectors as well as in the field of education. Technology offers practical solutions that
will make people's lives easier and improve their quality of life. Usually, while talking about
technology , firstly computer, mobile phone, internet comes to mind, in fact in every part of our
lives technology' footprint can be found. Everything we see around us, from the elevator, the cars,
the smart boards in the schools, the projection tools, the virtual reality glasses, the wristwatches to
the calorie calculation and the artificial intelligence robots, are actually products of technology. In
the 21st century, the concept of digital technology has emerged against the human being who is
trying to keep up with the rapid developments in technology. Theachers has to adapt technology in
their classrooms. In this regard, in the field of education especially the correct and effective use of
digital technologies need to be emphasized. At this point, it is important to determine the attitudes
and digital citizenship levels of teachers and prospective teachers who should use instructional
technologies in schools. In this study, the attitudes of preschool teachers towards digital
technologies and their digital citizenship levels were examined. The participants of the research
were students from the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades of the Preschool Education Department of a
public university in the 2017-2018 academic year. This research was designed in the general survey
model of quantitative research methods. The data was obtained by using the “Digital Citizenship
Scale for Young People “developed by Kuş, Güneş, Başarmak and Yakar (2017) and “The Attitude
Scale for Digital Technology” developed by Cabı (2016). Data is collected and is in the analysis

This study aims to find out how far students can get information from the parabolic motion graph
presented. The research method used is a qualitative method. 50 high school students who have
learned parabolic motion are given a parabolic motion graph and are asked to interpret it
according to their respective abilities. The results shown are students have different abilities. Most
students can only get information that is clearly readable on the graph such as the moving starting
point, the farthest distance, and the highest point. Some make additional lines as the direction of the
object's speed and determine the speed of the object in a certain position. These results can provide
an overview for the teacher about the difficulties of students in understanding the graph of

Abstract
Higher education system in Turkey has experienced many structural changes in recent decades,
which resulted in more and more concentration on English language teaching as a foreign language
at universities. However, the number of studies focusing on the relationship between organizational
culture and job satisfaction among language teachers at higher education institutions is very limited
whereas they are the key elements of language teaching process. The main objective of this study is
to find out the perceptions of English language instructors regarding organizational culture and its
impact on their job satisfaction at School of Foreign Language-Anadolu University in Turkey. The
findings of the study revealed that the respondents of the study had positive perceptions regarding
current organizational culture including satisfaction with colleague relations and administration,
supervision support and the work itself, as well as satisfaction with the available professional
development opportunities provided by their institution. A significant relationship between overall
organizational culture and job satisfaction was found in the study. This study also presents some
key elements about how to increase the job satisfaction levels of the language teachers and to
improve the organisational culture based on the findings of this study.

Abstract
This study investigated the relationships between usage pattern of Instagram (i.e., using a
public/anonymous account, frequency of creating posts, the number of followers, etc.) and
psychological characteristics (public self-consciousness, need for praise, need for rejection
avoidance, etc.) in university students. A questionnaire survey was administered to 189
undergraduate students (75 women, 115 men, average age = 19.5 years, SD=1.30). Among them, 123
(53 women, 70 men) were Instagram users and 66 (21 women, 45 men) were not. Independent t-test,
two-way ANOVA, and correlation analysis were performed for statistical analyses. The results
revealed that male Instagram users had a higher need for praise than did male non-users, although
there were no such differences in the female participants. Instagram users with higher public self-
consciousness were likely to keep their account anonymous, while no significant relationship was
found between the number of followers and psychological characteristics. Male users significantly
outscored female users in need for praise and were more conscious about the number of “likes.
Significant correlations were also found between consciousness about the number of “likes” and
need for praise as well as need for rejection avoidance. The results were discussed from the
viewpoint of self-presentation through the social networking service. Future research should take
into account other factors such as users’ intimacy with followers or what contents they upload.

Department of Special Education, Faculty of Education, Biruni University, Istanbul, Turkey
Abstract
Autism is a developmental disorder that appears in the first three years of life and affects social
emotional development and social engagement skills of children. Children with autism often have
difficulty in making eye contact, initiating social interactions, maintaining conversations, displaying
interactive social play behaviors, understanding others’ intentions and emotions, adjusting to
transitions, and displaying verbal and nonverbal social interaction behaviors. Early diagnosis is
very important for children with ASD for their proper education in correct time and correct way.
Also early diagnosis is very important for infants to improve their social communication levels
because face recognition and interpretation skills are gained in early childhood. Facial expressions
and their meanings are very important for communication and infants with autism have problems
about recognizing facial expressions. Also the results of studies reveal that children with autism,
have a different style while directing their gaze in the environment. In this study, researches about
atypical facial recognition characteristics of children with autism will be discussed.

Ysgol Pen Coch Special School, Flintshire County Council, Flintshire, Wales
Abstract
Three of the top ten autism research priorities determined by Autistica .org.uk across the UK for
2019 are :
1 Which interventions improve mental health or reduce mental health problems in autistic pupils?
2 Which interventions reduce anxiety in autistic people?
3 Which environments and supports are most appropriate in terms of achieving the best outcomes
in education, life and social skills in autistic people?
Children with autism can have phobias and fears about real life situations. It is important for
parents and teachers to know how to prepare pupils with autism for those situations.
Children with autism have been shown to display high levels of comfort with technology for many
reasons. Computer programmes are predictable, logical, and can provide an intellectual outlet for
children with specialised interests.
What they do find difficult is actual real-life situations. How often has a parent of a young child
with autism stood by helplessly as their child has a meltdown in a supermarket, at a road crossing,
on a train? How can we use technology to make real life situations easier for children with autism?
The aim of this paper is to show how a school- based virtual reality room addresses these issues.

revealed among others that there existed statistically significant relationship between open-door
policy, close-door policy, block of time and time-management practices. However, the study
revealed that all the three predictor variables were considered to have significant effects on
administrators’ time-management. Findings equally showed that open-door policy made the
strongest unique contribution to the prediction of time-management practices. The findings were
discussed in relation to the literature. It was recommended among others that specific time that can
most conveniently help administrators to receive visitors and operate successfully should be
indicated in front of the office door to control influx of drop-in visitors and avoid missing deadlines.

Abstract
Special education is aimed at providing a wide range of services to enable children who need special
assistance, logistics and teaching methods to participate in the educational system. Special schools
perform these functions by providing children with disabilities the support they need to participate
in teaching and learning. This study investigated the state of special schools in Ashanti and Brong
Ahafo regions of Ghana. The aim was to assess conditions in the schools, from the perspectives of
special educators, to ascertain if the schools were performing the functions for which they have
established. An in-depth interview was conducted with 20 participants, made up of special
education officials at the national head office, district special education coordinators, headmasters
and teachers of special schools. The results from the study suggest that special schools in the two
regions were ill-resourced and were turning out students with low academic and vocational
achievements. These findings are discussed in relation to the purpose of special education and the
commitment of government to provide quality education for children with disabilities.

Abstract
With part-time and adjunct faculty assuming a greater role in college teaching, institutions are
assuming more responsibility in providing support and assistance to this important constituency.
The expertise and experience brought to the classroom by part-time faculty is of ever in-creasing
importance to students and institutions. This expertise, however, can only be adequately
appreciated if it is appropriately recognized and incorporated into the instructional process. This
document has been prepared specifically to assist adjunct faculty who have careers outside of
education to efficiently grasp many of the concepts necessary for effective teaching. Realizing the
time constraints facing part-time faculty, the booklet is intentionally brief but to the point.
Individuals interested in examining the teaching process in greater detail may find the companion
publication A Handbook for Adjunct/Part-time Faculty and Teachers of Adults of value. It is the
hope of the author and publisher that, in some small way, this publication will assist faculty in
realizing a successful and rewarding teaching experience.

especially towards the minority: those who have special needs that can possibly be catered by
robots. The theoretical framework is based on how a robot’s behavior can be evaluated by
comparing it to another entity which is also capable of social interaction, which, in this case, are
PWDs. The process we used for Data Procedures are using Coding, Thematization and
Triangulation.With the data gathered by the researchers, functions and applications of robotics
among people with disability were analyzed. The Human Robot Interaction among the perspective
of PWD’s such as its relationship and challenges of integration were also effective as it gives them a
keen understanding that this could also benefit and help them whether, physically and mentally.
We researchers conclude that the process of the interview conducted gave an opportunity to
discover and understand the certain aspects concerning the PWD’s. With this, it serves as a
foundation that continues to develop and open doors to many opportunities that lead to a greater
impact in our society.

As the time passes and culture is passed on to different generations, the elements of tourism diverse.
With the prevalence of technology in our country, its citizens will have a better grasp of what
tourism actually is. This paper tackled and delved deeper on how beneficially technology can affect
and be the bridge to connect the gap between tourism and culture. In the modern era, technology is
ever-evolving, and it can be a great enhancement or tool for boosting tourism especially through
digital tourism. Whilst its social costs, both globalization and modernization cannot be ignored;
digital tourism can transform the imagery and identity of a locality. The scholars used the method
of semi-structured interviewing and analyzed their accumulated data through thematization for
this phenomenological study. The researchers have identified the elements of Digital Tourism
mainly focused on programs, technology and media. Meanwhile, the researchers also determined
the implications of Digital Tourism to the locals, the tourists and the government. The following
influences of Digital Tourism are also scrutinized by the researchers on culture and the
development of the city. As a conclusion, the scholars have found out that Digital Tourism is firmly
applicable to the City of Baguio and is adhered by tourists, locals and the government.

Abstract
The purpose of this quantitative study was to investigate Saudi teachers’ perspective toward video
game integration in education at elementary, middle, and high schools levels in Saudi Arabia; and
found differences in teachers’ attitudes between gender and level of teaching and teaching
experience. It also investigated relationships between teachers’ philosophy based on three major
learning theories (behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism) and their perspectives toward
video game use in the classroom. There were 930 male and female teachers who participated in the
study. Overall, the results of this study showed Saudi teachers’ attitudes toward video games were
fairly positive. Analysis found a relationship between teachers’ philosophy of teaching and their
perspectives toward using video games in their classroom for learning. A moderate negative
correlation was found between behaviorist philosophy and teachers’ attitudes. On the other hand,
there was a moderate positive correlation between cognitivism and constructivism philosophies
Saudi teachers’ attitudes toward using video games in classrooms.
