    Using the Business Model Canvas Strategy Tool to Support the Play4Guidance Online Entrepreneurial Game.Margaret Farren, Tom Kinney & Yvonne Crotty - 2017 - International Journal for Transformative Research 4 (1):34-41.
    The Erasmus + Play4Guidance project introduces an online business game, designed to help teach entrepreneurial, transversal and mathematical skills using a real-world business environment. This paper explains how the Business Model Canvas strategy tool facilitated student understanding of real life business development prior to playing the game. An initial mapping exercise was conducted to find out if the Business Model Canvas could transform the experience of playing the game by providing an overview of real life business strategy, and explain the (...)

    Using Visualisation Software to Improve Student Approaches to HE Online Assessment.Natascha Hard, M. Aslm Qayyum & David Smith - 2017 - International Journal for Transformative Research 4 (1):1-6.
    Studying via the Internet using information tools is a common activity for students in higher education. With students accessing their subject material via the Internet, studies have shown that students have difficulty understanding the complete purpose of an assessment which leads to poor information search practices. The selection of relevant information for particular learning assessments is the topic of this paper as it describes a case study that focuses on the information tool use of a small group of participants and (...)

    The Power of Belonging.Erling Krogh & Sigrid Gjøtterud - 2017 - International Journal for Transformative Research 4 (1):7-17.
    Coming from a Nordic environment, professionally working in teacher education, both authors engaged in developmental work and research in the Uluguru mountains in Tanzania. The research is carried out in a community-based organization for vulnerable youth, Mgeta Orphan Education Foundation, which builds on principles of action learning and action research. We have followed and participated in the development of the organization since 2010, and this article builds on data gathered in 2016-17. We will show and discuss some of the transformations (...)

    Transformative Research: Personal and Societal.Donna M. Mertens - 2017 - International Journal for Transformative Research 4 (1):18-24.
    Transformative researchers have the potential to contribute to both personal and societal transformation. In this article, I argue that the two are intertwined and that personal transformation is a necessary component of research that is designed to support change at the societal level in the form of furthering human rights and social justice. I describe a transformative framework that examines assumptions related to ethics, the nature of reality, epistemology, and methodology that can guide researchers who choose to address both the (...)

    Understanding the Direct Involvement of Parents in Policy Development and School Activities in a Primary School.Bernie Tobin - 2017 - International Journal for Transformative Research 4 (1):25-33.
    It is acknowledged that parental engagement with children’s learning and education is of vital importance. But, there is a tendency to confuse engagement with learning with engagement with the school. While all types of parents’ involvement can have a positive effect, it is actually what parents do with their child at home that has the greatest impact. However, unless parental involvement in learning is embedded in whole-school processes it is unlikely to as effective as possible. This paper documents an action (...)
