Nonviolent Communication in Lifelong Education
The university period, in which people realize, evaluate and develop themselves, is extremely important. In this process, job and future uncertainty, expectations and negative influences, especially in the last year, can cause anxiety in people. This situation also affects the learning process of individuals. The aim of this study is to determine the severity of the anxiety levels in terms of various variables of the senior statistics department students. The research covers the senior students of the statistics department of the Science Faculty at Ankara research universities in the 2020-2021 academic year. Based on Ankara, Gazi, Hacettepe and Middle East Technical Universities, the sample size of the sample to be selected was determined in equal shares and 93 samples were obtained, under the assumption that the senior students of the Statistics Department of each university had equal anxiety. "Spielberger State-Trait Anxiety Inventory” and “Beck Hopelessness Scale” were applied to the research group. The obtained data were analyzed with SPSS 28 statistical program. It has been observed that the anxiety and hopelessness levels of senior statistics department students are affected by the effects of COVID-19 on future plans, monthly income, weighted grade point average at the university, age, advantages outside the university, and work experience variables, and are not affected by the gender, marital status, number of siblings, graduated high school type, university studied, reason for choosing statistics department, pre-university settlement, parent education status, job priority, future job prospect, current job prospects, current working status, the idea of finding a suitable job time in accordance with the received education, the most appropriate strategy in case of the not employed within one year, self-development in the COVID-19 pandemic variables. As a result, it is considered that the senior students anxiety and hopelessness should be reduced, in order to improve themselves better and more effectively providing psychological counseling and guidance services and by increasing training seminars in this direction in the education process, necessary to support them in order to cope with anxiety and hopelessness.

Acculturative Stress and Scholarship Liability: Exploring the Challenges Faced by Turkish Graduate Students at US Universities
In today's world, the increase of othering and xenophobia with acts of violence, along with the changes that consume resources due to climate changes such as wars, irregular migration movements, famine and thirst, are an important necessity for understanding nonviolent communication and its application in the field of lifelong education. This requirement brought the problem of “adult education” to the agenda and accelerated the studies on the lifelong learning approach. In addition, key messages developed by UNESCO and the European Commission defined the characteristics that the lifelong learning approach should have. Within the scope of the study, the concept of nonviolent communication explained, and the "Make a Gesture Your Opponent" campaign, which includes nonviolent communication training for Turkey Football Federation first league teams, examined. Within the scope of the study, the "Make a Gesture to Your Opponent" campaign was determined as a case study. Accordingly, the official website of the campaign was examined. As a result of the analysis carried out in line with the key messages, the nonviolent communication approach that the "Make a Gesture Your Opponent" project wanted to instill in its participants shows how important education is in all areas of life.

Exploring the Relationship between Socioeconomic Status and Identification of Gifted in Turkey through Critical Systems Thinking
This qualitative research aimed to explore the challenges that create acculturative stress on Turkish graduate scholarship students at U.S. universities. This study used the theoretical framework of Berr's (2006) Acculturative Stress Model. As the experience of being a student in the U.S. is socially and contextually constructed through the students' shared experiences, the phenomenological research method is used in this study to obtain in-depth knowledge about the phenomenon. For the data collection, 13 participants were interviewed as a representative sample. The interviews were transcribed, and the common challenges that create acculturative stress for the students were determined. Five salient themes emerged in this study: language incompetency, loss of self-confidence, scholarship liability, loneliness, and academic advisors. Also, time restriction and students' perception of America are determined as essential subthemes. Implications for the scholarship program authorities, students, advisors, and counselors are discussed. Keywords:

The Effect of Online Application on Academic Achievement and Attitude in Musical Hearing Reading and Writing (MHRW) Lesson
This correlational study examines the relationship between identification as gifted and various indicators of socioeconomic status (SES) among high school students living in Turkey. The relatively large and representative sample consists of 688 high school students, both identified (n = 343) and unidentified (n = 345) as gifted, enrolled in nationwide after-school gifted education programs. The “identified” group comprises adolescents who scored an IQ index of 130 or higher, while the unidentified group comprises high school students attending formal educational institutions without meeting the IQ-based identification criterion. Chi-square tests of independence were utilized to investigate the relationship between identification status and SES indicators such as perceived household income, parental education level, current area of residence, and area of residence where most of life is spent. The results indicate that identified participants are more likely to come from families with higher perceived income and parental education levels, live in urban areas, and spend most of their lives in urban areas compared to the unidentified group. Overall, the findings suggest that SES factors might play a significant role in the identification of giftedness students in Turkey. The findings are discussed around the problem of underrepresentation in traditional identification methods, with a focus on educational equality within the framework of systems theory and critical systems theory.Keywords:

The Role of School Managers Toxic Leader Behaviors in the Effect of Teachers' Core self evaluations on Job Satisfaction, Organizational Cynicism and Burnout
Today, countries force all participants in the educational process to optimize their work through the Internet due to COVID_19 pandemic. In this context, the Turkish Ministry of National Education has used the online distance learning method as a strategy to continue education as many countries do in the world. To create a general conspectus, it may be significant to examine online distance learning practices using qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods. In this case, the current study focused to evaluate online courses implemented in Turkey according to the teacher experiences. For this purpose, the data of the study, in which the phenomenology based on the qualitative research paradigm was adopted, was collected from 25 teachers working in the 2019-2020 academic year. The data obtained from individual interviews were subjected to content analysis and examined under 4 conseptual categories (teachers' thoughts and feelings about online courses, problems teachers faced during online courses and suggestions to improve online courses). Findings revealed that online distance learning method applied during the pandemic period was partially successful according to the teachers' experiences. Findings are summarized with direct quotations, discussed by comparing with the related literature and suggestions are presented.Keywords:

Examining Primary School Curriculum from the Perspective of Classroom Education: The Case of 2015-2018
The aim of this study is to test the mediating role of the toxic leader behaviors of school managers in the effect of the core self-evaluations of teachers on job satisfaction, organizational cynicism and burnout. The data in the study have been collected via survey method from 437 teachers working in various schools in 12 different regions of Turkey. Confirmatory factor analyses have been conducted to test the construct validity of the scales used in this study. Correlation and regression analyses have been conducted to detect the relationships among variables and the mediation effects. As a result of the analyses; partial mediating role of the toxic leader behaviors of the school managers has been determined in the relationship between the core self-evaluation of teachers and organizational cynicism, emotional exhaustion and depersonalization. These obtained results indicate that the teachers with high core self-evaluation will be less exposed to the toxic behaviors of managers and they will also experience less cynicism and burnout due to their positive evaluations towards themselves.Keywords:

Twice Exceptionality with RStudio: A Bibliometric Analysis
The aim of the study was determined as the comparison of the 2015 and 2018 primary school programs in terms of program elements. In this study, the subject area, number of functions, content and evaluation dimensions of the Primary School Science, Life Science, Turkish and Mathematics program published by the Ministry of National Education in 2015 and 2018, and the differences between both programs were tried to be determined. Document analysis method, one of the qualitative research methods, was used in the research, and descriptive statistics and content analysis approach were used. The data source of the research was the Science, Life Sciences and Mathematics course teaching and 2019 Turkish teaching programs implemented in 2015 and 2018 from the sources of the Ministry of National Education. In the research, the program was examined in order to create descriptive statistics, and percentage calculations and acquisition and course rates were compared. Along with these comparisons, the ratios of acquisition, subject areas and number of units in subject areas and units were analyzed. The unit order of the science program has been changed, the subject area of engineering and entrepreneurship applications have been added to the 4th grade science program, the number of skills in the life studies program has been increased, the 3 learning areas in the Turkish program have been increased to 4 learning areas and the number of themes has been increased. On the other hand, it was seen that there was no change in the learning areas of the program, but changes were made in the naming. In addition, it was found that the number of acquisitions in science, life studies and mathematics programs were reduced, while the number of acquisitions in Turkish program was increased. As a result, it was concluded that the content of the curricula was lightened, the general objectives in the new curricula were made simpler and more understandable, and they were integrated with the content of the curricula.Keywords:

The goal of this mixed-method design study was to compare and contrast the contribution of STEM education on 6th-grade students’ (n=62) knowledge and perceptions of engineering and engineers. The data were collected by the use of the Engineering Knowledge Measurement Scale (EKMS) and the Draw an Engineer (DAE) instrument. In the study, two groups, namely, STEM-explicit emphasis on engineering (STEM-EE) and STEM-only (STEM-O), were formed. The data were collected before and after the 16 class hours of training (i.e., for a month) and were then analyzed. In both groups, two STEM activities (thermos and insulated home design) were carried out. However, the explicit emphasis on engineering was made in STEM-EE group. On the contrary, STEM-O group conducted the same STEM activities with no engineering emphasis. The results revealed that the students in both groups had incomplete and inaccurate knowledge and views of engineering (e.g. considering engineers to be workers) before the study. After the training, the students in the STEM-EE group had more accurate and richer views of engineering. Moreover, the students in the STEM-EE group mentioned more different fields of engineering after the study when compared with their peers in the STEM-O group. The explicit emphasis on engineering in STEM implementation using different models should be integrated into STEM activities. Keywords:
