The project proposed that sustained enhancements in the education system hinge on a collection of interlinked subsystems or factors that collectively boost overall school performance and student learning (Osman, 2023). The primary aim of this investigation was to scrutinize the interrelated elements capable of expanding the educational environment and contributing to long-lasting improvements in schools. The study adopted a descriptive-analytical approach, combining both qualitative and quantitative data analysis techniques. The study's sample comprised 110 educators and administrators from the participating experimental schools. The results indicate that the 13 factors examined in the proposed model make significant contributions to viable school improvement. Nevertheless, the importance of these factors varies from one to another. Based on these findings, it can be argued that activating all interrelated elements within the education system is imperative for achieving enduring improvements in student learning over time. Therefore, it is crucial to systemically enhance the performance of all interconnected factors within the education system.</em></p> 2024-03-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 http://www.grdspublishing.org/index.php/PUPIL/article/view/2356 THE VARIETY OF PROBLEMS IN JAPANESE STUDENTS’ HYPOTHETICAL PREMISE CONSTRUCTIONS 2024-03-18T08:29:01+00:00 David A.

From this point of view, and based on the fact that Morocco is striving to achieve progress at the level of its global classification concerning the quality of education and attention giving into its human and immaterial capital, there is a fundamental necessity of adopting a preventive treatment plan based on scientific research to preserve the intangible heritage and its exploitation in the development and construction of the generation of tomorrow's Morocco. This research focuses, through a set of scientific methods, on studying the impact of using the digitized musical heritage of the child in order to influence levels of creativity and academic achievement in primary schools with fragile social and economic backgrounds. A multi-scientific approach was chosen for this study, which embraced creativity under two different perspectives: one of creativity as a product and the other of creativity as a process. The methods used to explore the problem were quantitative, in the form of a standardized test of creativity and analysis of score averages, combined with descriptive observation. The results show a positive correlation between the technical research program and the improvement of creative cognitive skills in the Moroccan primary school. However, the results of the quantitative creativity test left some questions about the relationship of the use of arts in education and academic achievement. Creativity has proven that it can be understood more systematically when examined in the context of the creative process. Finally, the current research has led to several points of discussion and recommendations for future research.</em></p> 2024-03-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 http://www.grdspublishing.org/index.php/PUPIL/article/view/2357 PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS OF PRIORITY BASED MEMORY BALANCING TECHNIQUES IN IOT USING MACHINE LEARNING 2024-03-18T08:39:11+00:00 S.

Reading is the act or process of receiving and interpreting information in language via the medium of print. This paper identifies some of the challenges encountered by English teachers while instructing and facilitating the teaching and learning reading among secondary schools generally special focus on Nigeria. It highlights the multifaceted nature of the challenges, encompassing area such as diverse student intellectual abilities, insufficient cognitive engagement, language barriers. This paper review various studies on reading and in Nigerian schools, identify recurrent problems and the gaps relating to cognitive challenges. It explores potential solutions to mitigate these flaws, emphasizing the pivotal importance of tailored instructional strategies and tooling, collaborative approaches between parents/guardian and managements of school, and the integration of active technological apparatus to the system. The paper recommended that, regular workshops with a cognitive approach should be organized for all teachers of English to enable them handle reading effectively, this training will create a drive-in teacher to ensure that students under their tutelage are fluent readers. More so, in- service training should also be an integral part of continuing teacher education and teachers should be supported in order to increase their level of confidence when teaching reading. </em></p> 2024-03-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 http://www.grdspublishing.org/index.php/PUPIL/article/view/2359 RESEARCH ON BILINGUAL EDUCATION IN TAIWAN’S HIGH SCHOOLS 2024-03-18T08:55:45+00:00 I-Hsuan Kuo yishuan0909@gmail.com Tung-Fu Hsueh eastport0528@gmail.com Dr. Chiu-Cheng Kuo ccheng0976@gmail.com <p><em>This study aims to explore the current status of bilingual education implementation in high schools in Taiwan.

Our research involved 110 high school students. The aim of our present research was to determine the teacher's interaction style from the high school students' perspective using the QTI measurement tool. The purpose of the research was to assess how students see the teacher's classroom activities and how the teachers see themselves, and also to see whether there is a difference between the teacher's point of view and that of the students'. The questionnaire contains 48 items. The QTI measurement tool can serve as a valuable source of information for teachers in comparing their self-assessment with the student's view, which can obviously enhance their professional development.</em></p> 2024-03-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 http://www.grdspublishing.org/index.php/PUPIL/article/view/2368 TEACHING JAPANESE TEA CEREMONY TO CHINESE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS: DEVELOPING ENGLISH LEARNING MATERIALS 2024-03-20T06:23:44+00:00 Junko Matsuzaki Carreira carreira@tku.ac.jp Naoko Shioda shioda-naoko@tokyomirai.jp <p><em>This study is a preliminary study for creating teaching materials for the development of global human resources who can communicate their own (Japanese) culture, such as the tea ceremony, to the world in English. This study aims to clarify what foreigners are interested in, what they find important, and what they would like to know more about the tea ceremony to create teaching materials reflecting foreigners’ interests and concerns. The results indicated that the participating students enjoyed hands-on activities, such as actually preparing and drinking tea and learning how to eat wagashi (traditional Japanese sweets), even in an online environment. Furthermore, some students demonstrated interest not only in hands-on experiences but also in the history of the tea ceremony, distinctions between Japanese and Chinese tea cultures, and various aspects of the tea ceremony, including tea, tea utensils, traditional clothing (kimono), and the differences among tea ceremony schools. Based on these findings, it is recommended to create educational materials for Japanese university students learning the tea ceremony in English that cover not only the fundamental etiquette of the tea ceremony, but also provide comprehensive knowledge about the broader aspects of the tea ceremony. </em></p> 2024-03-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024
