SELF-REGULATED LEARNING STRATEGIES, ACADEMIC MOTIVATION, PERCEPTION OF TECHNOLOGY AND MATHEMATICS PERFORMANCE OF THE SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL STEM STUDENTS
Authors: GERALD C. APOSTOL
Abstracts: The objective of the study was to identify potential indicators of mathematics performance among students at three senior high schools in the province of Pangasinan. It took into consideration self-regulated learning methodologies, technological perception, and academic motivations. Inferential and descriptive statistics were used to obtain the values necessary for drawing logical conclusions. The research was conducted in three STEM-focused mega schools in the province of Pangasinan. The population of the study consisted of 124 11th graders enrolled during the first semester and continuing through the second semester of the 2020-2021 school year. The most common way for students to self-regulate their learning is to consider time and search for an appropriate learning environment. When students set aside time and cultivate a conducive learning environment, they perceive themselves as more productive. In addition, students felt comfortable learning with their mobile devices in and out of the classroom. Academic motivation (7), self-regulated learning strategies (9) and perception of technology were utilized to predict students' performance in mathematics using hierarchical multiple regression. As identified, identified regulation, motivation, rehearsal, time and study environment, and introjection regulation and rehearsal significantly predict students' mathematical performance. The derived model has a predictive accuracy of approximately 72.3% and was determined to be a good model. It is recommended that additional research be conducted on these factors contributing to the academic performance of students and that effective teaching strategies be developed to maximize the effects of these variables.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP DEVELOPMENT AMONG WOMEN WITH DISABILITIES IN RWANDA. A CASE OF BUGESERA DISTRICT.
Authors: DR. SEBASTIEN GASANA, VéDASTE HABAMENSHI, SYLVIE NIBEZA
Abstracts: This research assessed entrepreneurship development among women with disabilities in Rwanda using a case of Bugesera district. The research assessed the status of working for pay among women with disability in Bugesera district, the training level on entrepreneurship and financial literacy, the level of knowledge of business creation and management, employment preference by women with disability, and challenges of employment promotion among women with disability in Bugesera district. A sample of 177 women and girls with disability aged between 15 and 45 were selected purposively from 15 sectors of Bugesera district, all types of disability and education levels being represented. Pilot survey was conducted on 20 women and girls with disability of Gakenke district and the results indicated that the tool was valid and reliable. Descriptive statistics was applied and the results are presented in form of frequency and percentages. The results of the research indicated that 72.3% of surveyed women and girls with disabilities did not apply for paid job due to low education level and lack of self- confidence and lack of confidence by the job providers. 88.1% of women and girls with disability were not trained on entrepreneurship and 83.1% were not trained on financial literacy. This is a severe issue that has to be addressed for promoting access to jobs as this issue limit the knowledge about business creation and management as indicated by 54.2% lacking knowledge on selection and management of small scale projects; lack of knowledge on institutions and programs providing loans to small businesses as affirmed by 58.2%; lack of knowledge on available opportunities to become entrepreneur as indicated by 59.3%. Yet, women and girls with disability prefer self- employment than working for pay as indicated by 68.4%. Challenges of employment promotion among women with disability in Bugesera district include but not limited to: Non-inclusive education and vocational training leading to lower levels of education and training among persons with disabilities, Lack of information and support for companies considering the employment of persons with disabilities; Societal views of disability heavily stigmatized; Accessibility barriers in built environments including transport, products and services; Lack of awareness of disability in the workplace leading to misrepresentation and stigma; Welfare systems which discourage people from entering employment; Inadequate provision of workplace adjustments; Low level of capacity of publicly funded bodies to effectively support persons with disabilities. These results led to conclude that lack of general education and training on business creation and management affect negatively employment creation among women with disability in Bugesera district.

ROLES OF WOMEN IN LIVESTOCK RAISING IN LAO PDR
Authors: SAIPHOU LORMAISIM, JOSEFINA T. DIZON, CANDLE SIDTHISONE, BOUNYORE KOULAVONG, THONGSA TOUNMANYSONE
Abstracts: In a typical Lao family, women contribute essentially to its livestock and crop production. However, there is much variety in women’s roles and over-generalization undermines policy relevance, ethnic groups, and planning. In Lao PDR, women are involved in the workforce more than men, and in both crop and livestock production, women also play more roles than men. Women in the rural areas of Lao PDR still have a harder time than men because of ethnic/traditional practices. Although the law is equal for both men and women, customary practices principally through inheritance always override official laws. The application of the customary laws is predominantly determined by the matrilineal and patrilineal practices of the different ethnic groups. Many activities in livestock raising were strictly separated by gender as men dominate activities such as management of ruminant animals and building houses for them, while women attend to all livestock but they focus on pig, goat, and poultry production. Women in livestock raising in Lao PDR need to be recognized. This paper aims to determine the women’s role in livestock production in Lao PDR and analyze the gender-related tasks in livestock raising in Xiengkhor district Houaphanh province, Lao PDR. The respondents comprising of 180 households from selected villages in Xiengkhor District, namely, Natong village and Phouk village, participated in the study

STUDENTS’ SELF-REGULATED LEARNING STRATEGIES, SELF-EFFICACY, AND MATHEMATICS PERFORMANCE IN A MOBILE TECHNOLOGY-INTEGRATED CLASSROOM OF SELECTED GRADE 8 LEARNERS
Authors: RICO GABRIEL A. RAMOS, JHOSSUA A. CARAGAY, GERALD C. APOSTOL
Abstracts: This quasi-experimental research design’s objective was to determine the students’ self-regulated learning strategies (SRLs), self-efficacy (motivation), and mathematics performance (MP) in the mobile technology-integrated face-to-face classroom and predict potential indicators of MP among (simple randomized) 82 selected Grade 8 learners of San Jose Community High School, before and after the instruction. The values required for analyses were obtained using descriptive and inferential statistics. The questionnaires were valid and found reliable (excellent), and assumptions for parametric tests are met. Both the traditional classroom and the technology-integrated classroom (intervention) resulted in statistically significant difference (improvement) between the pre-test & post-test, SRLs, and self-efficacy means. However, comparing the two groups & variables in groups, the intervention was more effective and found to have enhanced the SRLs, self-efficacy, and MP of learners. Rehearsal and extrinsic goal orientation were the most utilized SRLs and self-efficacy subscales of the MSLQ, respectively. Out of nine subscales of SRLs, only the rehearsal and metacognitive self-regulation subscales served as predictors of learners’ MP with a predictive accuracy of approximately 68.5% (good model). Thereof, learners were motivated (increased self-efficacy) in learning mathematics by engaging in an activity/task for the motives like grades, performance, comparing one's performance to that of others, evaluation by others, and rewards. And with the proper planning, monitoring, assessing, understanding, and rehearsing a skill over and over in order to gain proficiency, this affected the students’ mathematics performance.

ASSESSMENT OF DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION ATTRIBUTES OF MHEALTH INTERVENTIONS: A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW
Authors: SAMSON MFUYENI; YAMIKANI YAFETI
Abstracts: Usage of mobile phones in achieving health objectives (mHealth) has greatly increased in Sub-Saharan Africa. This is based on the premise that mHealth interventions improve the reach and quality of healthcare services. This systematic review examined mHealth intervention designs and implementation strategies and assessed their effect on interventions’ outcomes. Major databases and grey literature were searched for relevant studies using main search terms ‘mHealth’ and ‘Africa’. The search was restricted to articles published from 2010 to 2020. Only studies evaluating effectiveness of non-internet based communication services available on mobile phones such as text messaging, voice messaging and voice calling were eligible for inclusion. After screening, eleven studies were included in this systematic review. The review demonstrated that; i) mHealth interventions in Sub-Saharan Africa are mostly effective, ii)Weekly text medication reminders without additional motivational or health education information are significantly more effective, iii)Tailored and personalised health promotion text messages are significantly more effective, iv)Interactivity and messaging automation do not significantly improve effectiveness of mHealth interventions and, v)Use of behaviour change theories does not consistently improve effectiveness of mHealth interventions. Short text messages and tailored messages have more potential for successful mHealth interventions. Health promotion interventions could leverage the use of these attributes to enhance the reach and quality of healthcare services.
