The main objective of the present study was to explore if students and teachers perceive the same antecedents of students’ boredom. The authors asked students to report the reasons for their boredom and compared the teachers’ perceptions to the students’ answers. The results show that students were able to describe the antecedents of their boredom profoundly and in detail. The comparison of students’ and teachers’ perspectives revealed a strong correspondence. The results reveal that most of the antecedents named by students were also mentioned by teachers with only the exception of the student category teacher’s personality.

This article reports on an analysis of scholarship published over the last 20 years in four journals, which examined the discourse in these journals around mathematical content and instructional strategies for preservice early childhood teachers. The analysis is focusing on the U.S. context. The findings revealed that attention to the context of early childhood education was minimal, largely as a result of a dominant focus on elementary education. This focus on elementary rather than early childhood showed up in greater attention to advanced content in mathematics and in an emphasis on formal over informal instructional methods.

Training Teachers in Evidence-Based Practice for Individuals With Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Review of the Literature
This article reviews 23 studies, where researchers experimentally evaluated training for teachers of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Authors summarized qualitative information on study and participant characteristics. Next, variables related to teacher practice and student learning targets were categorized based on Odom, Collet-Klingenberg, Rogers, and Hatton’s list of evidence-based practices (EBPs) for individuals with ASD.

This paper offers a critical review of the literature on 21st century knowledge frameworks, with a particular focus on what this means for teachers and teacher educators. The article identifies common themes and knowledge domains in 15 reports, books, and articles that describe the kinds of knowledge that researchers state are integral and important for success in the 21st century. The authors argue that seemingly disparate frameworks converge on three types of knowledge, as necessary for the 21st century: foundational, meta, and humanistic. They argue that the synthesis of these different frameworks suggests that nothing has changed, that this tripartite division between what we know, how we act on that knowledge, and what we value has always been important. This analysis suggests that, though the 21st century is different from previous times, it does not mean that our core roles have changed.

The current review of literature examines 14 studies that utilized virtual technologies to increase learning outcomes for pre-service special education teachers during field experiences or courses that prepared them for such experiences. Included studies examined the efficacy of learning from digital case studies, supervision via videoconferencing, audio-cued coaching, and participation in virtual reality activities.

On the Effectiveness of Supplemental Instruction: A Systematic Review of Supplemental Instruction and Peer-Assisted Study Sessions Literature Between 2001 and 2010
This article presents a systematic review of the literature between 2001 and 2010 regarding the effectiveness of Supplemental instruction (SI). The findings of the review are consistent with claims validated by the U.S. Department of Education in the 1990s that participation in SI is correlated with higher mean grades, lower failure and withdrawal rates, and higher retention and graduation rates.

This review summarizes 20 published studies on undergraduate mentoring programs from 2008 to 2012. The results indicate minimal progress has been made in these three areas. However, every study included the functions of mentoring, and most studies were guided by a theory or a conceptual framework. Finally, information on primary mentoring program components, another dimension not previously examined, was absent in 75% of studies, making replication difficult.
