This series presents substantial results from around the globe in selected areas of educational research. The field of education is consistently on the top of priority lists of every country in the world, yet few educators are aware of the progress elsewhere. Many techniques, programs and methods are directly applicable across borders.

Topics discussed herein include school size; a conceptual analysis of the literature regarding school discipline for students with disabilities; school-sponsored activities for Hispanic middle school students; architecture as support of the “knowledge ecosystem”; grade eight African American and Caucasian student disciplinary consequences and academic achievement; designing educational material for early childhood mathematics education; interplay between cognitive and non-cognitive processes and research trends in TPACK.
