Meta-Analytic Findings on the Relationship Between Online Social Networking Activities and Academic Achievement" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ICA's 68th Annual Conference, Hilton Prague, Prague, Czech Republic, <Not Available>. 2019-04-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1363422_index.html>

Abstract: The popularity of social networking sites (SNSs) among adolescents and young adults has raised concerns that the intensity of using these platforms might be associated with lower academic achievement. The empirical findings on this issue, however, are all but conclusive. Therefore, we present four random-effects meta-analyses including 59 independent samples (total N = 29,337) on the association between patterns of SNS use and grades. The meta-analyses identified small negative effects of = -.07, 95%CI [-.12, -.02] for general SNS use and = -.10, 95%CI [-.16, -.05] for SNS use related to multitasking. General SNS use was unrelated to the time spent studying for school ( = -.03, 95%CI [-0.11, 0.06]) and no support for the time displacement hypothesis could be found in a meta-analytical mediation analysis. SNS use for academic purposes exhibited a small positive association, = .08, 95%CI [.02, .14]. Hypotheses with regard to cross-cultural differences were not supported.

"Internet Activism, Trans-National Public Sphere, and State Activation Apparatus: A Case Study of Anti-Japanese Protest" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, San Francisco, CA, May 23, 2007 Online <PDF>. 2019-04-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p170051_index.html>

Abstract: Examining the course of online and offline anti-Japanese protests in China that purported to oppose Japan’s ascension into the United Nation Security Council in 2005, this paper attempts to interrogate the role Internet could play in the communication of international affairs with regard to the two themes of nationalism and civil society in Chinese society. This paper argues that, even though the Internet could facilitate the formation of public opinion, the orchestration of popular political movements and the production of a transnational public sphere, it does not necessarily mean a promotion to the growth of domestic civil society in Mainland China. This contradiction exists because the crucial element underlying all these popular political communication is nationalism, which is indeed a double-edged sword to the Communist Party. The fact that the survivability of public opinion and popular nationalism can only exist when it is aligned with the interest of the state strongly demonstrates the function of the Internet as a state activation apparatus in online international political communication—a device by which the PRC government can employ to activate or make use of what is activated by the citizens through the medium of the internet to advance national interest in the international arena.

"21st Century Teaching for 21st Century Students: Globalized Active Learning for Active Global Citizenship" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association, Town & Country Resort and Convention Center, San Diego, California, USA, Mar 22, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-04-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p98834_index.html>

Abstract: Understanding and addressing the North-South divide in the globalized classroom of the 21st century requires students and teachers alike to bridge the knowledge, as well as the technology divides. Increasingly, studying abroad as part of the university experience is becoming the rule, rather than the exception. As a result, students and teachers from the North, South, East and West, find themselves seated next to each other in the globalized international studies classroom. Many of todays "techno-tasking" students are are able to multi-task in ways that some of their teachers and classmates can hardly imagine. "Digital students" are being taught by teachers who are "digital immigrants." The resulting cultural, linguistic, knowledge, and technology gaps, call for changes in teaching and require greater efforts to integrate technology and active learning into the classroom. Drawing on examples from university international studies courses in law and politics, this paper will discuss how multimedia, interactive response systems, simulations, and other collaborative methods can be utilized in the globalized active learning classroom to foster 21st century active global citizens

Abstract: This paper traces the evolution of judicial activism in Guatemala from 1979 to 2007, taking into account the changing roles of civil society actors and extra-legal power networks. While the Constitutional Court showed signs of becoming a strong defender of the constitution in 1993, they are now intensely dominated by the "hidden powers" and frequently rule of bend the constitution to fit the interests of the military and other powerful actors. The Constitutional Court has gone so far as to block the creation of an international commission to control these "hidden powers."
