Our public preparing gadget needs great fledgling educators possessing awesome feelings of viability and genuine instructing limit. The exhibited understudy educator execution appraisal is being utilized the nation over as a method for evaluating the preparation of student instructors for a hit calling in tutoring. Since self-adequacy is most intensely associated with early audits, it's crucial to comprehend the researcher's self-viability. This ganders found that the connection between self-viability and achievement rating toward the finish of the test, understudies inside the public authority resources of Rawalakot is standard. Self-adequacy in sure understudies changed into saw to diminish later inward accommodation while given remarks on advancement and execution. All people had been demonstrated to increment in self-adequacy from the beginning of the student as far as possible accurate to form fundamentally dependent on the writing evaluation. Understudy mentor execution is contrarily related to the other in self-viability from the start to the stop of understudy training.

Most African countries have inherited the Western monolingual LIEPs and have given prevalence to ex-colonial languages as official languages of education, media, and administration. Some countries, like Cameroon (host to more than 270 African languages), have gone beyond preferring French and English as a medium of instruction, adding more foreign languages (German, Spanish, Chinese, Italian, and Arabic) in secondary schools and universities, to the detriment of national languages. Most studies on language policy address the issue of language as a medium of instruction and neglect to critically evaluate the pertinence and relevance of the generalised teaching/learning of foreign languages in schools and universities in Cameroon. This study looks at the connection between teaching foreign languages and Cameroonians' transnational aspirations. The data were collected from discussions on two Facebook threads about the topic, discussions with lecturers of foreign languages at university, and a meta-synthesis analysis of existing statistics about international migration for educational purposes. The findings reveal that inbound international migration flux is associated with language but is not the most crucial factor. As a result, the study suggests either suppressing the generalised teaching of foreign languages in the francophone subsystem of education and setting up a public-private partnership or at least suppressing the Spanish and Italian languages whose knowledge has not provided any direct benefit for the majority of the learner. The cost of running those languages is not equivalent to the return.</p> Herbert Rostand Ngouo Copyright (c) 2022 Studies in Humanities and Education https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-07-11 2022-07-11 3 1 24 47 10.48185/she.v3i1.452 Students’ Social Media Access, Sources, and Reasons for Utilization: Basis for Integration in the Curriculum https://www.sabapub.com/index.php/she/article/view/453 <p>This study investigated access through devices, internet sources, and reasons for using social media among purposively selected students in a tertiary education institution in Cebu, Philippines. This mixed qualitative-quantitative study used a survey and interview to gather data. The study found that the top three access devices were <em>android phones</em>, <em>desktop computers in internet cafés</em>, and <em>personal laptops</em>. In contrast, the top three internet sources were <em>smartphone data plans</em>, <em>Wi-Fi connections in internet cafes</em>, <em>restaurants, coffee shops, etc.,</em> and <em>Wi-Fi connections in school</em>. The top reason for using social media was <em>to get news and information and to learn about significant events, people, and places</em>. It was concluded that the students were highly engaged in social media using their devices. Internet access allowed them to perform tasks in their accounts for several reasons. The findings can serve as the basis for technology and social media integration in the curriculum. </p> Roniel Fortuna Copyright (c) 2022 Studies in Humanities and Education https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-07-11 2022-07-11 3 1 48 64
