Book Description :

Drawing upon the author’s on going research into information literacy, Information Literacy Landscapes explores the nature of the phenomenon from a socio-cultural perspective, which offers a more holistic approach to understanding information literacy as a catalyst for learning. This perspective emphasizes the dynamic relationship between learner and environment in the construction of knowledge. The approach underlines the importance of contextuality, through which social, cultural and embodied factors influence formal and informal learning. This book contributes to the understanding of information literacy and its role in formal and informal contexts. Explores the shape of information literacy within education and workplace contexts Introduces a holistic definition of information literacy which has been drawn from empirical studies in the workplace Introduces a range of sensitizing concepts for researchers and practitioners

Book Description :

Mapping Information Landscapes presents the first in-depth study of the educational implications of the idea of information literacy as ‘the capacity to map and navigate an information landscape’. Written by a leading researcher in the field, it investigates how teachers and learners can use mapping in developing their ability to make informed judgements about information, in specific places and times. Central to the argument is the notion that the geographical and information landscapes are indivisible, and the techniques we use to navigate each are essentially the same. The book presents a history of mapping as a means of representing the world, ranging from the work of medieval mapmakers to the 21st century. Concept and mind mapping are explored, and finally, the notion of discursive mapping: the dialogic process, regardless of whether a graphical map is an outcome. The theoretical framework of the book weaves together the work of authors including Annemaree Lloyd, Christine Bruce, practice theorists such as Theodore Schatzki and the critical geography of David Harvey, an author whose work has not previously been applied to the study of information literacy. The book concludes that keeping information landscapes sustainable and navigable requires attention to how equipment is used to map and organise those landscapes. How we collectively think about and solve problems in the present time inscribes maps and positions them as resources in whatever landscapes we will draw on in the future. Information literacy educators, whether in libraries, other HE courses, high schools or the workplace, will benefit by learning about how mapping – implicitly and explicitly – can be used as a method of teaching IL. The book will also be useful reading for academics and researchers of information literacy and students of library and information science.

Book Description :

This volume makes a timely contribution to our understanding of literacy as a multi-faceted, complexly situated activity. Each chapter provides the reader with a fresh perspective into a different site for literate behaviour, approaches, design and relationships, and offers an exploration into the use of literacy theories to inform policy and practice, particularly in regard to curriculum. Bringing together international experts in the field, the contributing authors represent a wide variety of theoretical and research perspectives which cover literacy in various forms, including: • transformative literacy • survey literacy • academic literacies • information literacy in the workplace • digital literacy. Landscapes of Specific Literacies in Contemporary Society suggests that literacy curriculum needs to evolve from its current perspective if it is to cater for the demands of the 21st century contemporary globalised society. The book will be of key interest to researchers and academics in the fields of education, curriculum studies and the sociology of education, as well as to policy makers and literacy specialists.

Book Description :

Thirteen marginal Philippine communities were examined in an ethnographic study of the meaning of functional literacy and whether literacy invariably promotes development. The 13 sites were purposely selected to provide a broad sampling from three standpoints: (1) major livelihood and form of economic activity (farming, fishing, urban poor, disaster areas); (2) ethnolinguistic grouping (Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao); and (3) lifestyle or rhythm of life in the community (traditional, transitional, Moslem Filipino minority, lowland Christian majority, urban poor, developmental). The sample functional literacy rate in the study's communities ranged from 34.4% to 79.8%. Special attention was paid to the following topics: community life as a context of literacy practice; community knowledge and the passage to a literate tradition; different practices, meanings, and definitions of functional literacy in different contents; constraints in the relationship between literacy and development; and possibilities for literacy in conceptualizing a school of the people. The study demonstrated that the concepts of literacy and numeracy cannot be separated from their social and cultural settings and that standard measures of literacy used in industrialized countries are often inappropriate in other nations. (Eleven tables/figures are included. The report contains 41 references. Appended is information about the quantitative method and data analysis.) (MN)

Book Description :

This book offers a range of perspectives on children's multimodal experiences, providing a ground-breaking account of the ways in which children engage with popular culture, media and digital literacy practices from their earliest years. Many young children have extensive experience of film, television, printed media, computer games, mobile phones and the Internet from birth, yet their reaction to media texts is rarely acknowledged in the national curricula of any country. This seminal text focuses on children from birth to eight years, addressing issues such as: * media and identity construction * media literacy practices in the home * the changing nature of literacy in technologically advanced societies * The place of popular and media texts in children's lives and the use of such texts in the curriculum. By exploring children's engagement with popular culture, media and digital texts in the home, community and early years settings, the contributors look at empirical studies from around the world, and draw out vital new theoretical issues relating to children's emergent techno-literacy practices. With an unmatchable team of international experts evaluating topics from text-messaging to the Teletubbies, this book is a long-overdue, fascinating and illuminating read for policy-makers, educational researchers and practitioners, and crosses over to appeal to those in the linguistics field.

Book Description :

From the earliest evidence of human aggression to the mordern era of sophisticated warfare, this book covers the archaeological aspects of war in the landscape using a multi-period thematic approach incorporating worldwide material. The book discusses the evidence for warfare from Ancient Sumeria to the fall of the Roman Empire in the west and then concentrates on the form and types of defences adopted by different cultures and communities from the level of family projection up to that of national defence, using the archaeology of Britain as a major source of vidence. Drawing on a wide variety of research including excavated evidence, historical sources and in some cases oral testimony, the authors analyse the importance of archaeology as a tool for interpretation and take a close look at the influence of terrain in some specially chosen military campaigns across the globe. The patterns of warfare which repeat themselves in the forms of arms races and technological advances from prehistory to the present are examined in terms of the cycles of aggressive and defensive measures, and case studies are used to exemplify how and why territorial frontiers were held or lost in different eriods. AUTHOR: Both authors have been involved in teaching historical and archaeological material at the University of Surrey on a Continuing Education degree course as well as undertaking their own research in the field. Paul Hill, formerly curator at Kingston Museum in Surrey, has a background of Anglo-Saxon weapongs and warfare and Julie Wileman has been researching into prehistoric warfare at UCL and has worked as Assistant Director and Finds Officer at a number of archaeological sites in Surrey.

Book Description :

Stormwater management has long existed as a daunting task for many cities. Within recent decades, a novel landscape design approach to effectively and sustainably manage urban stormwater known as Low Impact Development (LID) was initiated in the United States. Unfortunately, the LID projects, although holding ecological benefits, have often fallen short of achieving public recognition and satisfaction because of their illegible and unkempt looks. Concerning this onerous problem, the tenet that stormwater knowledge can play a role in stimulating aesthetic appreciation of LID landscapes has been reiterated. This study, accordingly, intends to provide information and insight regarding public appreciation of and education about the LID design. San Francisco Bay Area was chosen as a study area due to its unique and critical stormwater management situations. Eight projects, which demonstrate a range of LID designs, were selected as the test sites. In addition, other eight places representing a range of conventional landscape designs, the non-LID sites, were also selected as the control sites. The questionnaires were developed and distributed to visitors of these 16 selected study sites using the street intercept method. Results from the analysis of 502 responses demonstrate that, in most of the cases, the LID facilities were well recognized and appreciated by the respondents, compared to the conventional-designed landscapes, thereby suggesting that these LID cases can serve as good models for the ensuing projects and, besides, the implementation of LID design in San Francisco Bay Area can be continued without serious concern about public resistance. Nonetheless, because some LID facilities were unlikely to receive positive public responses, making better designs and advancing stormwater literacy are both considered key strategies. The analysis results also reveal that respondents thought they were not quite knowledgeable about sustainable stormwater management, yet they were open to information and knowledge, especially through reading the interpretive signs at the facilities, leading to the recommendation that LID projects in the Bay Area be developed in a manner that they can facilitate stormwater education. This dissertation concludes by highlighting the role that landscape design can play in making successful and meaningful LID facilities and, ultimately, establishing desirable relationships between aesthetics and ecology. Based on the review of design strategies proposed in relevant literatures and used in existing projects along with the insights derived from the survey results, an innovative set of design criteria for creating the LID facilities which can enrich aesthetic experience and enhance stormwater knowledge of their visitors is developed. These design criteria include 1) visibility and legibility, 2) accessibility, 3) functionality, 4) attractiveness and interest, 5) cultural aesthetics, 6) ecological revelation, 7) interactive activities, 8) interpretive signage, 9) water features, and 10) application and replication. In addition, this dissertation also develops the guidelines for designing the prominent stormwater management features, which include 1) water tank/ cistern, 2) street gutter/ storm drain/ runnel, 3) pavers/ permeable pavement, 4) lawn/ grass/ turf, 5) rain garden/ bioretention planter/ bioswale, 6) stormwater pond/ constructed wetland, 7) green street/ green parking lot, 8) green roof, 9) green wall, and 10) scupper/ downspout. Even though these criteria and guidelines are developed based on the situations of San Francisco Bay Area, they are considered applicable to other geographical areas.

Book Description :

Landscapes in Early Childhood Education provides an analytical framework for addressing current (global) issues within the field of early childhood education. Early childhood specialists from several nations show how they have applied this framework in their analyses of specific case studies. The case studies illuminate supports and constraints to the field and provide recommendations for improved practice. The case studies address areas or «landscapes»: the global landscape - issues of global significance to the field of early childhood education; the political landscape - issues that show the relationship between politics and the field of early childhood education; the landscape of policy and practice - issues regarding micro policies and classroom practices; the professional landscape - issues relating to the development and practices of early childhood professionals; and the curricular landscape - issues relating to curriculum in early childhood settings.

Published in partnership with the Association of College and Research Libraries, a division of the American Library Association While the library is at the center of many campuses physically, it is often an overlooked and underused resource in improving the learning and success of first-year college students. In this new volume, librarians, classroom faculty, administrators, and higher education researchers come together to explore the potential of the library in shaping the student experience. Chapter authors explore structures and practices for helping students learn to navigate the college library; use the Internet effectively; and find, analyze, and incorporate information into their academic work -- a critical foundation for college success. Thirteen case studies present detailed information on current practice from a variety of campus types.
