The research focuses on the impact of individual identities on academic and social integration. A quantitative descriptive methodology was used, employing structured questionnaires. The study reveals a range of obstacles that extend beyond initial expectations and are consistent across gender and departmental lines. The analysis shows that there is a crucial requirement for a support framework that is universally accessible and inclusive, designed to aid students in their transition to higher education. The findings of the study recommend the creation of comprehensive feedback mechanisms and interdepartmental cooperation in the development of support programs. The research emphasizes the significance of acknowledging and addressing the distinct obstacles encountered by students with intersecting marginalized identities. Suggestions for future research involve a more thorough examination of the long-term impacts of these obstacles and the investigation of focused interventions to improve student achievement and well-being. This study adds to the discussion on improving student support services and creating an inclusive academic environment that promotes the growth and development of all students, especially those who are navigating their first year in higher education.</p> 2024-02-24T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Shaima Ahmed Hassan https://journal.ascarya.or.id/index.php/iscs/article/view/659 Collaborative Learning in Computer Labs for Science Education 2024-02-24T17:16:45+07:00 Hakar J. Mohammed Salih hakar.salih@uoz.edu.krd Jahwar Y. Arif jahwar.arif@uoz.edu.krd Shaimaa Q. Sabri shaimaa.sabri@uoz.edu.krd <p>This study analyzes the use of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) in computer laboratory settings for secondary school science education. The literature review evaluates the impact of collaborative methods using computer simulations, virtual experiments, and other digital technologies. The search yielded 33 relevant studies, indicating that collaborative conditions outperformed individual laboratory work in computer environments across various measures. Collaborative work in pairs or small teams has been shown to lead to better learning outcomes and expert-like reasoning patterns. Additionally, students have reported finding collaborative computer laboratory work more enjoyable, engaging, and preferable to independent work. The integration of computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) into science education presents opportunities to enhance students' learning experiences through interactive and collaborative approaches. This study highlights the importance of student-centered learning design, effective group dynamics, and reliable technology infrastructure for successful CSCL implementation. Additional research is required to identify the best group composition and task design, as well as the implications for effectively implementing computer-supported collaborative learning in science laboratories.</p> 2024-01-30T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Hakar J.

Sabri https://journal.ascarya.or.id/index.php/iscs/article/view/660 Critical Discourse Analysis of Trump's Tweets on the Covid-19 Pandemic 2024-02-25T03:12:31+07:00 Heevi Khaled Jamel heevi.jamel@uod.ac Marwan Abdi marwan.abdi@uod.ac Khalid Ilias Basheer khalid.ilias@uoz.edu.krd <p>This paper presents a critical discourse analysis of Donald Trump's tweets regarding COVID-19, utilizing Fairclough's three-dimensional model and Halliday's systemic functional linguistics to examine the language used. The analysis centers on two tweets that illustrate Trump's politicization of the pandemic and the propagation of stigmatization through social media. The research examines the stylistic and formal characteristics of Trump's tweets, focusing on his use of metaphorical language and blame-shifting tactics, specifically his labeling of COVID-19 as a 'Chinese virus.' The analysis also investigates discourse practices, connecting Trump's rhetoric on the U.S.-China trade agreement and pandemic response to wider political narratives. The study analyzes the socio-cultural implications of Trump's discourse at a macro level. It highlights how his discourse exacerbated xenophobia, nationalism, and social divisions during the global health crisis. The findings demonstrate that Trump's tweets influenced public perceptions and international relations, reinforcing anti-China attitudes and contributing to a polarized public response to the pandemic. This study emphasizes the significance of a critical and reflective approach to political communication, particularly during times of crisis. It also offers insights into the creation and dissemination of ideological narratives in the digital era.</p> 2024-01-30T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Heevi Khaled Jamel, Marwan Abdi, Khalid Ilias Basheer
