Establishing a student-centered classroom environment where learning puts students’ interests first is essential for middle school students to learn and thrive. Student success does not simply rely on instruction; it relies on external factors such as school and classroom climate, positive relationships with their teachers and other adults, and a strong sense of belonging with their peers. The young adolescent learner is at a turning point where the need for love, belonging, and acceptance is heightened. Research studies indicate that large percentages of students lack social-emotional competence and believe their teachers do not care about them. Social-emotional learning skills are vital for young adolescents, as are 21st century skills and competencies to prepare them for an information- and technology-driven world. Aligning Social-Emotional and 21st Century Learning in the Classroom: Emerging Research and Opportunities shows teachers practical ways to combine the skills that young adolescents need (social-emotional) and the 21st century skills that they learn to create a culture of success in their middle school classrooms. This book also provides examples of education technologies that teachers can use to promote 21st century learning in their classroom. Highlighting a wide range of topics such as communication skills, critical thinking, social media, and emotional intelligence, this book is crucial for teachers, school administrators, instructional designers, K-12 educators, curriculum developers, academicians, researchers, and students.

Chinese universities are striving to integrate new educational elements such as student-centered learning, group learning, active learning, and learning by doing into current traditional curriculum systems for creativity development among young generations. However, the concept of creativity by its very nature is a complex term of many perspectives. It is necessary to clarify what creativity is, how creativity can be fostered in learning environments, and what universities should do in order to foster creative young talents. Introducing Problem-Based Learning (PBL) for Creativity and Innovation in Chinese Universities: Emerging Research and Opportunities is a critical scholarly resource that provides a multidimensional understanding on both challenges and opportunities of fostering creativity and PBL in Chinese universities and particularly discusses this implementation in a Chinese cultural context. Though related to a Chinese cultural context, the book can inspire other universities in other cultures, particularly in Asian areas, to learn why PBL is a potential strategy for creativity development and to rethink how to facilitate the innovation capability of universities in the future. Featuring a wide range of topics such as course design, educational technology, and curriculum development, this book is ideal for education professionals, academicians, teaching professors, researchers, administrators, and students.

The COVID-19 pandemic created a ripple effect that impacted education worldwide, felt from Pre-K through higher education. In response to the pandemic, teachers, parents, and students shifted to teaching and learning online to adjust to the affordances found in digital spaces. However, challenges quickly arose, and it was found that research was sorely needed on adapting learning to these digital spaces, including addressing issues with equitable access to technological tools, meeting the social emotional needs of all learners, and developing appropriate teaching strategies for young children in online spaces. Situating our understanding of emerging research in this area of remote teaching and learning in Pre-K through higher education is critical as we look to build upon evidence-based practices to better support 21st-century educators and learners. Cases on Practical Applications for Remote, Hybrid, and Hyflex Teaching presents emerging case studies on the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and reports and responds to early evidence of these impacts and the predicted future impacts for students, families, teachers, policymakers, and higher education. Building on knowledge of how teaching and learning in digital spaces work, the literature presented in this book captures preliminary findings and emerging research examining how educators leverage teaching and learning across platforms and modalities and shares stories on how educators, families, and communities responded to the challenges of teaching and learning online to ensure all students were engaged and fully supported while learning remotely and as they transitioned back to the classroom. Covering topics such as pedagogies, remote teaching, and parental responses, it is ideal for teachers, academicians, preservice teachers, professors, researchers, community education providers, and students.
