Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

Abstract

In this work we present a characterization of and discuss the research trends connecting social media to learning in the United Kingdom in the last six years. The data set for this research comprises articles published in educational journals indexed in the Web of ScienceĀ® database. A cluster analysis was used to group similar articles in the data set. We characterized the main research trends by identifying the typical features of the articles within each of the main groups that emerged from this analysis.
