The objective of the present study was to specify a model for the study of the relationships between agenda effects, framing, priming and melding. A documentary, retrospective and exploratory study was conducted with a selection of sources indexed to international repositories, considering the year of publication and the keyword algorithm. Differences were evidenced between the published literature and the qualifications of judges who are experts in the field, although the design of the work limited these findings to the search algorithm, suggesting the extension of the study to the indicative logic of credibility and verifiability of the information disseminated in the media.

In only a few years, information and communication technology (ICT) has become an important education technology that can underpin some big changes in the teaching process. Technology makes students more effective than ever, but the position of teachers in high-tech classrooms is more challenging than ever before. ICT has the power to change the essence of education (Improving teacher design, enhancing the role of learners and involving them in the teaching process and attempting to develop a collaborative culture, etc.) While information and communication technology has the great potential to improve the system of education, due to certain impediments, emerging economies are indeed a long way from reaping such advantages. The aim of this study is to have a coherent approach to worldwide issues pertaining to barriers encountered in the implementation of ICT in the classroom setting. The study-room assessment and documents evaluation make the study realistic, which were used as methodological approaches for building effective analysis and reaching reasonable conclusion. It is found that the analysis must assist to find factors affecting the decision of teachers to integrate ICT in teaching. Links to existing literature will be developed to explore various challenges to the implementation of ICT.

Starting with the creation of the global information space, there are two forces that can really influence information processes. The first side is the technological side, the other side is the state structures based on social and humanitarian issues.The creators of global networks and the owners of key technologies advocate that everything remains as it is, based on freedom of speech, and in humanitarian terms, states are trying to control this process based on the implementation of legislation.The first side is based on free speech, controls the advertising market and dodges taxes, the other side wants to deal with “concerned groups” and also fight social ailments.In this confrontation, libraries, as institutions influencing the information environment, stand next to the state and try not to lose their attractiveness. In this respect, libraries can act as a bridge between local and regional as well as global networks.

Libraries, academic and university libraries currently operating in the world and meeting modern challenges are the main participants in the authoritative information cycle. Coordinating the information activities of these agencies can lead to a significant improvement in the information environment.

The main goal of the study is to identify the optimal forms and methods of using social networks in libraries.  It is also exploring the reasons why libraries use social media to ensure an effective and widespread information service.

Little is known about the reasons for the high dropout rate of students from poor Southwest China families under various policies support. The dropout rate of 27312 junior high school students was 6.90%, and the dropout rate of grade 7-9 increased with the grade. Principal Component Analysis was conducted on 21 attributes of 299 dropout students. We found that parents with higher educated degree and late marriage, parents working close to home, large family size, family with sick or disabled members, higher grade and non-boarding and unhealthy students increased the dropout rate. The dropout prevention requires reducing the inducers from family, school management and students themselves.

The paper focuses on the increasing incidence of working poor families in Nigeria. Data from the ILO and NBS suggest that, not only is the number of working poor families in Nigeria increasing, despite governments efforts at increasing the number of jobs created. This point to the assertion that, removing working poor families out of poverty will not solely depend on their being employed. The paper uses data from Nigeria’s General Household Survey to characterize inducing factors of working poor families in Nigeria. The findings suggest that female – headed households, polygamous and divorced households, individuals who have never been married, size of employment establishment, and household expenditures, are determining factors of working poor families in Nigeria. We recommend the supplementing of working poor families incomes through Living wage and contributory savings, establishment of State Health Insurance Schemes, and affordable housing through a state guaranteed Mortgage Schemes.
