Abstract: Petra Christian University plans to build a Student Center, which functions as a place for students to gather in an informal meeting, a place for student activities, and a place with social and cultural facilities for students, but still fit with the purpose of the university. To prepare a more suitable plan for the students as the main users, their voices should be considered. A survey to 1087 students has been done to gather their voices. This study evaluates level of need and level of importance of the room that will be provided in the Student Centre. The level of satisfaction of the existing facilities’ size has been evaluated to the student guild. This study has recommended rooms under seven categories which have to be provided, such as: rooms for student union, academic support, administration, social, religious rooms, commercial room and some complementary rooms Abstract in Bahasa Indonesia : Universitas Kristen Petra merencanakan untuk mendirikan Student Center yang merupakan tempat berkumpulnya mahasiswa dan sivitas akademika dalam pertemuan informal, tempat aktivitas mahasiswa dan tempat yang menyediakan fasilitas rekreasi, sosial, dan kultural sesuai dengan dasar dan tujuan universitas. Agar perencanaanya lebih sesuai dengan kebutuhan pengguna utamanya, yaitu mahasiswa, maka pendapat mereka perlu menjadi bahan pertimbangan. Untuk mengetahui pendapat mahasiswa telah dilakukan survey kepada 1087 responden mahasiswa aktifis dan non aktifis. Studi ini menilai tingkat kebutuhan dan tingkat kepentingan dari ruangan yang akan disediakan di dalam Student Center tersebut. Mengingat sebagian ruangan-ruangan tersebut sudah ada, maka dilakukan juga evaluasi kepuasan pengguna ruangan terhadap luas ruangan yang diwakili oleh aktivis mahasiswa. Hasil akhir dari penelitian ini adalah rekomendasi ruangan yang perlu disediakan dapat dikategorikan sebagai ruangan untuk organisasi mahasiswa, ruang penunjang akademik, ruang spriritual, ruang administrasi, ruang sosial dan dilengkapi dengan beberapa ruang komersial serta ruang pelengkap.
The Complex Ecology of Young People’s Community Engagement and the Call for Civic Pedagogues
Paul Warwick,Hilary Cremin,Tom Harrison,Carolynne Mason
Journal of Social Science Education , 2012,
Abstract: This paper focuses upon the community engagement of young peoplegrowing up in socio-economically disadvantaged areas and the creation ofapt civic learning spaces. It is in direct response to public policy within theUK, as in many other democratic countries, giving continued attention tohow young people’s active citizenship can be best supported. As aconsequence of processes of globalisation, social change and technologicaladvancement it is being increasingly recognised that young citizens faceunprecedented challenges in the 21st century. At the same time youngpeople growing up within areas of socio-economic disadvantage arecommonly identified as being most at risk of social exclusion anddiscouragement with regard to their civic participation.This paper draws from the EngagED project, a two-year study based inEngland that used a mixed methods research approach to explore the civicaction and learning of young people living in both inner city and rural areasof socio-economic disadvantage. It presents an eco-systemic model of thehost of factors and agencies that influence young people’s civic identity andpatterns of community engagement. It outlines two new civic learningspaces that were created in response to these complex ecologies and fromthese experiments in ‘pre-figurative practice’ proposes a set of keyprinciples for the effective civic pedagogue. This radical notion of the civiceducator moves away from educational strategies that seek to ‘transform’young people into good future citizens, towards finding personalised waysof supporting young people ‘as’ citizens.
The radical potential of student voice: Creating spaces for restless encounters
Michael Fielding
International Journal of Emotional Education , 2010,
Abstract: This paper starts by sketching out some of the developments in research partnerships between adults and young people within the context of formal schooling in the last twenty years and then briefly touches on some of the critiques of such work, underlining the role of values and political perspectives. The third section argues for a particular - person-centred - standpoint resting on a relational, communal view of the self that puts certain kinds of relationships at the heart of education and schooling in general, and student voice partnerships in particular. Finally, the author argues for the importance of creating spaces for restless encounters between adults and young people in which they are able to re-see and re-engage with each other in creative, holistic and potentially transformational ways. In taking this forward, the much neglected and derided radical traditions of state education offer us an important resource.
Wer darf die Fragen stellen: Die Ethik in/von der Praxis des kogenerativen Dialogs Who Gets to Ask the Questions: The Ethics in/of Cogenerative Dialogue Praxis Quien consigue hacer las preguntas: La ética en/de la práctica deldiálogo cogenerativo
Ian Stith,Wolff-Michael Roth
Forum : Qualitative Social Research , 2006,
Abstract: Wir stellen den "kogenerativen Dialog" als ein authentisches Forschungsmittel dar, das, wenn richtig durchgeführt, helfen kann, einige ethische Probleme der "Klassenzimmerforschung" angemessen anzusprechen. Hierzu wird zun chst die Frage nach der Teilnahme der Forschenden im kogenerativen Dialog gestellt. Dann wird der kogenerative Dialog als ideales Mittel diskutiert, um Interaktionen und die Partizipation all derer, die in der Klassenzimmerforschung teilnehmen, in Gange zu bringen: das schlie t Schüler und Schülerinnen, Lehrer und Lehrerinnen, und Forscher und Forscherinnen ein. Schlie lich stellen wir den kogenerativen Dialog als ein Mittel dar, das die Diskussion ethischer Fragen erleichtert, die sich als integraler Anteil der Forschungssituation (z.B. in einer Schulklasse) stellen. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0602382 We present cogenerative dialogue as an authentic research tool which, when conducted properly, can address some of the ethical issues inherent in classroom research. To begin with, there is the question of the participation of the researcher in the cogenerative dialogue. Next, we present cogenerative dialogue as an ideal tool to instigate interaction and participation among the participants in classroom research: students, teachers, and researcher. And finally we present cogenerative dialogue as tool to facilitate the discussion of the ethical issues that are part of the research setting (e.g., class). URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0602382 Presentamos el diálogo cogenerativo como una herramienta auténtica de investigación con la cual se puede, si es adecuadamente utilizada, investigar algunos de los temas éticos inherentes a la investigación de clase. Para comenzar, está la pregunta acerca de la participación del investigador en el diálogo cogenerativo. Después, presentamos al diálogo cogenerativo como una herramienta ideal para instigar la interacción y participación entre los participantes de la investigación de clase: alumnos, maestros e investigador. Y finalmente presentamos el diálogo cogenerativo como una herramienta para facilitar la discusión de temas éticos que son parte del escenario de la investigación (por ejemplo, una clase).

Let Me Put It Another Way: Methodological Considerations on the Use of Participatory Photography Based on an Experiment with Teenagers in Secondary Schools
Jose M. Coronel,Iván Rodríguez Pascual
Qualitative Research in Education , 2013, DOI: 10.4471/qre.2013.20
Abstract: This article reflects on the use of participant photography as a methodological component of a qualitative research study into student intercultural relations in four secondary schools in Spain. Forty boys and girls took part and we selected over 400 photographs they had taken. The article draws attention to the importance of student ‘voices’ to show the interaction processes and the value of participatory photography as an approach that encourages their participation beyond the traditional interviews and field observations. The results acknowledge the value of photography to reflect the relationships among adolescents. However, while the experiment was positively rated by the participants, the study recognises the risks taken and the achievements, constraints, dilemmas and difficulties encountered by the investigators carrying out the research.

Revista CEFAC , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-18462010005000113
Abstract: purpose: to check the effects of a speech therapy intervention, based on the educational practice, by the assessment of speech and language pathologists, singing teachers and amateur choral singers themselves, analyzing the parameters of breathing, projection and vocal range profile in singing voice, pre and post speech therapy intervention. methods: the program was the theoretical framework of zabala (1998) on educational practice. ten amateur choral singers responded to a characterization questionnaire and conducted recordings of vocal range and singing, pre and post intervention. during six meetings, we approached warm up, anatomy and physiology as for the singing voice, vocal health, breathing and voice perception. the recordings were analyzed by judges (speech therapists and singing teachers) that assessed breathing, projection and vocal range profile. the choristers, without access to the recordings, made self-assessment of those parameters. results: evaluation of judges: vocal range had more positive changes, followed by breathing and vocal projection. all parameters had significant changes (p <0.01). speech therapists analyzed the vocal range more in line with expectations, singing teacher considered the projection, and breathing data showed results statistically equivalent. the results by subject showed that two singers had improvements in all parameters and seven of them, at least, in two of the parameters. the singer's perception showed improvements in all aspects. conclusion: the intervention had positive effects on the choir and showed the need for studies that may evaluate the process itself, in order to enhance the speech therapist acting on the singing voice.
Entrenamiento del vibrato en cantantes
Guzmán, Marco Antonio;
Revista CEFAC , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-18462010005000072
Abstract: background: vocal vibrato is one of the most important acoustic, technical and stylistic features to characterize the voice quality in classical singers. technically, vibrato is a pulsation of pitch, usually accompanied with synchronous pulsations with intensity and timbre. vibrato can be described acoustically by the rate, extent and periodicity of frequency modulations and amplitude modulations of the voice. procedures: an opera singer student, 25-year-old, lyric baritone, with normal voice from the perceptual point of view. the correction of vibrato is carried through by using the method "rhythmic vibrato training". one produces a rhythmic pulse subdivision or unit of time during a vowel emission with "time" or speed constant. subsequently, there is a variation in pulse speed, vowels and melody. the acoustic parameters of vibrato are evaluated objectively before and after training. results: the patient succeeded to produce a vibrato with rate, extent, and regularity within the normal ranges. vibrato production was carried through in a conscious directed way by using abdominal and laryngeal activity at the same time. the vibrato continued improving after the training had been completed. conclusions: it is possible to train and correct the vibrato in a targeted way through specific exercises, intended for such purpose. the visual biofeedback plays an important role on the outcome.

Tavares, Elaine Lara Mendes;Labio, Roberto Badra de;Martins, Regina Helena Garcia;
Brazilian Journal of Otorhinolaryngology , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1808-86942010000400013
Abstract: acoustic vocal analysis is a simple and fast method that allows to differentiate normal from changed voices. there are few studies that analyze normal acoustic vocal parameters at different age ranges in children. aims: to establish normative acoustic parameters of children's voice aged 4 to 12 years. methods: two hundred and forty children were divided into four sub-groups by age: g1 (n-60; 4-5 years), g2 (n-60; 6-7 years), g3 (n-60; 8-9 years) and g4 (n-60; 10-12 years). the children's parents answered a questionnaire and the children were submitted to auditory acuity evaluation (assessment of transient otoacoustic emissions), acoustic vocal analyses, otorhinolaryngological and videolaryngoscopy exams. results: the normal values for the acoustic vocal parameters studied were established according to age range and gender. as age increased, there was a decrease of f0 and apq and an increased in spi with statistical difference of these parameters. the vocal parameters did not differ between genders until the age of 12. conclusions: the characterization of the normative vocal patterns of children is an important reference for future studies. some of the changes showed a direct relationship between age and a reduction of f0 and of apq, and increase in spi, with no difference between genders.

Abstract: background: overall voice and strain level analysis in rock singers. aim: to analyze the voice o rock singers according to two specific parameters: overall level of vocal deviation (olvd) and strain level (sl); to compare these parameters in three different music samples. method: participants were 26 male rock singers, ranging in age from 17 to 46 years (mean = 29.8 years). all of the participants answered a questionnaire for sample characterization and were submitted to the recording of three voice samples: brazilian national anthem (bna), satisfaction and self-selected repertoire song (rs). voice samples were analyzed by five speech-language pathologists according to olvd and sl. statistical analysis was done using the software spss, version 13.0. results: statistically significant differences were observed for the mean values of olvd and sl during the performance of satisfaction (olvd = 32.8 and sl = 0.024 / p=0.024) and during the rs performance (olvd = 38.4 and sl = 55.8 / p=0.010). the values of olvd and sl are directly proportional to the samples of the bna* and rs**, i.e. the higher the strain the higher the olvd (p,0.001*; p=0.010**). when individually analyzing the three song samples, it is observed that the olvd does not vary significantly among them. however, the mean values present a trend to increase from non-rock to rock performances (24.0 bna / 32.8 satisfaction / 38.4 rs). the level of strain found during the bna performance presents statistically significant difference when compared to the rock performances (satisfaction and rs, p=0.008 and p=0.001). conclusion: the obtained data suggest that rock style is related to the greater use of vocal strain and that this strain does not necessarily impose a negative impression to the voice, but corresponds to a common interpretative factor related to this style of music.
