School Teachers for Students with Special-Needs (STSSN) are not only required to have high cognitive abilities, they must also have a higher level of patience and energy when dealing with students with special needs. In fact, some of them have not been able to respond appropriately the uncontrolled behavior of students with various special needs. The goals of CEMARA (Extraordinary Caring and Empathy) training are enhancing the knowledge, communication skills, and social competences of special school teachers. The training process is carried out using experiential learning with four sessions. The first session is orientation session and training contract, the second session is sharing experiences and explaining knowledge about caring skills and empathy, the third session simulates how to communicate effectively in an empathetic manner, the fourth session ends with reflection and evaluation. Seven teachers of MILB YKTM Budi Asih participated as respondents. The results of this training were the emergence of increased knowledge, communication skills and social skills among teachers. They gained new knowledge about caring and empathy, then they practiced problem analysis and positive communication skills when dealing with various special need students. The improvement of teachers’ social competences is shown by the teachers’ feedback at the end of the training

Abstract Background The use of research evidence as an input for health decision-making is a need for most health systems. There are a number of approaches for promoting evidence use at different levels of the health system, but knowledge of their effectiveness is still scarce. The objective of this overview was to evaluate the effectiveness of knowledge communication and dissemination interventions, strategies or approaches targeting policy-makers and health managers. Methods This overview of systematic reviews used systematic review methods and was conducted according to a predefined and published protocol. A comprehensive electronic search of 13 databases and a manual search in four websites were conducted. Both published and unpublished reviews in English, Spanish or Portuguese were included. A narrative synthesis was undertaken, and effectiveness statements were developed, informed by the evidence identified. Results We included 27 systematic reviews. Three studies included only a communication strategy, while eight only included dissemination strategies, and the remaining 16 included both. None of the selected reviews provided “sufficient evidence” for any of the strategies, while four provided some evidence for three communication and four dissemination strategies. Regarding communication strategies, the use of tailored and targeted messages seemed to successfully lead to changes in the decision-making practices of the target audience. Regarding dissemination strategies, interventions that aimed at improving only the reach of evidence did not have an impact on its use in decisions, while interventions aimed at enhancing users’ ability to use and apply evidence had a positive effect on decision-making processes. Multifaceted dissemination strategies also demonstrated the potential for changing knowledge about evidence but not its implementation in decision-making. Conclusions There is limited evidence regarding the effectiveness of interventions targeting health managers and policy-makers, as well as the mechanisms required for achieving impact. More studies are needed that are informed by theoretical frameworks or specific tools and using robust methods, standardized outcome measures and clear descriptions of the interventions. We found that passive communication increased access to evidence but had no effect on uptake. Some evidence indicated that the use of targeted messages, knowledge-brokering and user training was effective in promoting evidence use by managers and policy-makers.

This chapter is an interview with two literary scholars, whose research in Icelandic and North Atlantic environmental history has led to the creation of new digital tools and interdisciplinary research networks. From the Icelandic sagas and place names, to new discoveries of medieval and early modern life writing, their distinct paths converge on the study of culture as both a repository and medium of environmental knowledge, communication, and cultural memory.

In the modern socio-educational environment, which is developed through intercultural exchange and the implementation of new methods of spreading knowledge, communication in the student environment is based on the exchange of visual images and philological units. For students of the philological direction, communication with foreign language communicants is determined by the possibility of improving the function of conversation, perception of cultural characteristics and obtaining new images. Of relevance is the perception of not only spoken language by students, but also of the academically correct lexical group. The novelty of the study is determined by the fact that academic language is often perceived as a kind of anachronism, as something insufficient to expand linguistic competence. The study proves that the readiness of students to implement the provisions of academic language is possible not only culturally, but is also achievable by pedagogical methods. The study demonstrates that the implementation of the extended learning format is achieved through the techniques of linguistic learning. The practical significance of the study is that the perception of academic language will allow students of the philological direction to implement their skills in various social spheres, which may require historical language research and be predominantly fundamental.

An in-depth and refined empirical study on the emotional expression of information and the information processing mechanism of audiences is carried out to provide enterprises and other organizations with insights and references as regard to the effective utilization of WeChat Tweets for information dissemination and marketing purposes. Based on 1,465 actual tweets from two different types of WeChat public accounts (knowledge communication and information releasing), this paper applies the limited attention capacity model and the signaling theory to analyze the influence of emotional presence, emotional complexity, emotional intensity, and emotional polarity of tweet titles on the click-and-read behavior of the audience. The results show that for WeChat public accounts serving the purpose of knowledge communication, emotional presence and emotional complexity of tweet titles, as well as the emotional intensity of positive tweet titles, has no significant effect on the click-and-read behaviors of the audience. Besides, the emotional intensity of negative tweet titles has a significant negative impact on the audience’s click-and-read behaviors. While for WeChat public accounts serving the purpose of information releasing, tweet titles with emotional presence and lower level of emotional complexity are more likely to trigger click-and-read behaviors of audiences; emotional intensity of negative tweet titles has no significant effect on the click-and-read behaviors of audiences, and emotional intensity of positive tweet titles has a significant negative impact on the audience’s click-and-read behaviors. Thus, this study further analyzes the influence of emotional factors, such as emotional existence, emotional complexity, emotional intensity, and emotional polarity of tweet titles on the click-and-read behavior of consumers and further explores the emotional information processing mechanism of WeChat tweet readers.

The world has been undergoing tremendous transformation since early 2020 with the occurrence of a global pandemic of COVID-19. While it will take several years of study and research to understand the true effect of this pandemic on society, it is worthy of noting that it has already transformed our methods of leading lives. One of the areas, highly impacted by a pandemic is education. In order to deliver education in a distance learning manner, more and more academic institutions have been acquiring IT systems to deliver education to the students in the confines and safety of their homes. Saudi Electronic University (SEU) has been pioneering the application of online systems for blended learning in not just Saudi Arabia but the whole middle east and north Africa region. The reliance on systems at SEU for maintaining education standards during pandemics has increased. This has provided the opportunity to researchers in various fields of IT and computing to study evolving role of such systems in traditional and blended models of education. Situational Factors (SFs) are key elements that affect the acceptability of systems by stakeholders. This paper describes the outcome of the study that was carried out to identify critical Situational Factors that play a major role in the acceptance or otherwise of systems in the academic sphere during pandemic times. The results have shown that knowledge, communication, and trust are the most important situational factors for blended learning applications. The case studies and findings are presented followed by a brief analysis of results.

New pedagogical methodologies in the field of health sciences are a necessary and important tool for students in training. At the moment we are living an exceptional situation due to the "COVID" pandemic. This has forced us to implement new learning methodologies. In the present study we evaluated the acquisition of basic competences for the application of knowledge, communication and interpretation of relevant data to make judgements in practices in students of the health sciences degree who carried out theoretical lessons and online practices using new tools and methodologies in comparison with students who carried out lectures and practices prior to COVID. The participants in the study were n=441 nursing and dentistry students, who were divided into 2 study groups; master class Group, and Online Group. A questionnaire was carried out to assess the acquisition of knowledge and the degree of satisfaction. The results obtained showed a significant increase in the maximum number of questions answered correctly and a higher degree of satisfaction of the students in the online group. We can conclude that the implementation of online classes and the application of new educational innovation methodologies in internships show better results in the acquisition of knowledge.
