From the perspective of colonization, disability studies, and emotions, how can we understand inequality as a historical process? Beyond simply understanding the history of how our society exists, what can these perspectives tell us about the day-to-day experience of people living and dying in our society?

Scholar of Change Video#4 – Coding

I chose the fourth week social change video (Topper, 2016) produced by Christine Topper, a doctoral student in educational psychology. In her video, she shares about the lack of green spaces for children, families and people in the immensely dense city of Hong Kong. As an international teacher in this “vertical city” Topper (2016) shares that there is a lack of access to open green space to play and grow food in to allow communities to connect with nature. She continues to speak of the term, Nature Deficit Disorder (NDD), coined by Richard Louv (2005) states that with the increase of technology and reduction of green open space to play, children are lacking opportunities to be and grow in nature. Topper ( 2016) was determined to change that and partnered with an early childhood educator to create a rooftop micro-green garden for the children to experience every part of the process of growing food and be surrounded by green space.

Saldaña (2016) explains that coding in qualitative inquiry is a word or short-phrase that summarizes the sentence or information in a brief and direct way that describes the essence of the content in a clear and simple way. Being an early childhood educator myself, I was drawn to this video because I knew of Louv’s work, interested in environmental initiatives. As a professor of early childhood education, we teach our students to ask open-ended questions to children to create two way communication, ignite curiosity, and increase critical thinking skills.

I was happily surprised to read that another coding process, what Saldaña (2016) calls “ Initial Coding” is a word or short phrase of the coder’s first impression. I was also interested in, “In Vivo Code,” Saldaña (2016) where the code includes direct quotes as I often annotate children’s art work. I gravitated to both of these types of coding because I am familiar with and have practiced aspects of this coding process but not formally and never knew the terms for coding. Example of what Saldaña (2016) called “ Initial Coding” is a word or short phrase of the coder’s first impression.

CHRISTINE TOPPER: 1 Nature deficit disorder is a real social problem in a big city like Hong Kong. 2 I decided to conduct an independent research study looking for ways to address nature deficit disorder.3 Building on the rooftop greening project an early childhood teacher and myself started a sustainable micro-garden for the kindergarten students in the outdoor play space.

1 LACK OF GREEN SPACE, NO CHILDREN IN NATURE, CONCRETE JUNGLE

2 NATURE CHANGE AGENT

3 COLLABORATION IN NATURE EDUCATION TO SUSTAIN INITIATIVE

Example of what Saldaña (2016) called “In Vivo Code,” using actual quotes of participants. CHRISTINE TOPPER: 1 I am an international school teacher in Hong Kong.2 Hong Kong It is a compact and vertical city. 3 As such our student body does not have much exposure outside of home and has developed a disconnection from the natural world.4 High rise buildings are taking over the natural green spaces where children usually play and media technology is keeping people indoors and changing the lifestyle of society from active to sedentary. 1 INTERNATIONAL TEACHER 2 “HONG KONG IS COMPACT AND VERTICAL CITY” 3 CHILDREN DISCONNECTED FROM NATURE, SCHOOL AND HOME 4 HIGH RISES HAVE SUBSTITUTED PLAYGROUNDS

Scholar of Change Video #2

The scholar of change video I chose for this discussion was #2 Scholar of Change Video by Wisconsin mother, nurse and

advocate against drug addiction, Jakie Kundert (Kundert, 2012). In her video made in 2012, Kundert noted that the opioid problem

had made its way to her small town and what was once “a big city problem” was now in small towns like hers across the country.

The opioid addiction crisis became a crisis of her own when her son became addicted to heroin. Another mother from the same

town shared the story of the loss of her son to a heroin overdose and how it impacted her. Jakie Kundert desired to create

awareness and change in her small town through her non-profit organization, F.A.I.T.H. (Fighting Addiction It Takes Help) that

educates and supports her community and families dealing with addiction (Kundert, 2012). Saldaña (2106), states that

Values Coding is the application of codes in qualitative data that reflect a participant’s values,attitudes,and beliefs, and

their personal view of the world and their place in it. I selected this as I was interested in the challenge of determining which code

would be applicable. It is not as easy as it seems. I also looked at Emotion Coding but found that the ladies in the video did not

express much emotion so I would be inferring the emotions rather than them being expressed or clearly stated by them.

Codes from Transcript of Video:

Value: “This issue touches me greatly as I have a son who got caught up in the cycle.”

Attitude: “When I saw those rates it spurred something in me that made me know that I had to somehow try and make a positive impact on this community.”

Belief: “What once was a big city problem is now felt in small cities across the nation.”

“The last time I’m not sure if it was another call for help or if it was just a mistake. I could tell that he was dead, you know, that he was brain dead.”
