Book Description :

Unplugging the Classroom: Teaching with Technologies to Promote Students' Lifelong Learning provides techniques to help teaching and learning in an age where technology untethers instruction from the classroom, from semester seat-time, and from a single source of expertise. The book brings together researchers and practitioners from diverse academic fields, including library perspectives, and presents interdisciplinary discussions from both theoretical and applied areas. It is unique in its goal of bringing educators and librarians together to explore the challenges that are faced by students and faculty in any time, any place, any path, and any pace learning. In spite of the fact that the mobile revolution has definitively arrived, students and faculty alike aren’t ready to make the leap to mobile learning. The pressures of technological advances, along with the changing nature of learning, will demand increasingly profound changes in education. Researchers have begun to address this issue, but the revolution in mobile communication has not been accompanied by a concomitant growth in pedagogical resources for educators and students. More importantly, such growth needs to be under-girded by sound learning theories and examples of best practice. Provides a hands-on resource useful to both novices and experts for technology-enabled teaching and learning Gives both discipline-specific and cross-disciplinary perspectives Discusses discipline-specific mobile applications Offers an opportunity to meet the needs of contemporary learners and foster their competencies as lifelong learners Addresses emerging issues in technology and pedagogy

Book Description :

The authors conducted a two-year study on the implementation of computer technologies, including in-depth interviews and classroom observation at thirty-two elementary and secondary schools across Canada. Based on this research, Policy Unplugged explores the intersections and disconnections between provincial technology policy, school board policy, and school-based practices. The authors consider the ways in which technology policy has become "unplugged" from daily experience, showing that teachers, students, and administrators are part of complex pedagogical and social systems that have been badly served by the enforced and hasty introduction of technology. They also show how small, often unquestioned practices and power relations in schools can create seemingly insurmountable impediments to technological implementation.

Book Description :

Teaching primary computing without computers? The Computing curriculum is a challenge for primary school teachers. The realities of primary school resources mean limited access to computer hardware. But computing is about more than computers. Important aspects of the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science can be taught without any hardware. Children can learn to analyse problems and computational terms and apply computational thinking to solve problems without turning on a computer. This book shows you how you can teach computing through ‘unplugged’ activities. It provides lesson examples and everyday activities to help teachers and pupils explore computing concepts in a concrete way, accelerating their understanding and grasp of key ideas such as abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation. The unplugged approach is physical and collaborative, using kinaesthetic learning to help make computing concepts more meaningful and memorable. This book will help you to elevate your teaching, and your children's learning of computing beyond the available hardware. It focuses on the building blocks of understanding required for computation thinking.

Book Description :

TODAY'S TECHNICIAN: ADVANCED AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS, is an extension of the popular Today's Technician Series that covers all mechanical and electrical systems of automobiles and light trucks. This book is intended for a course in advanced automotive electronic systems and is divided into two volumes: a Classroom Manual and a Shop Manual that separate cognitive and performance learning objectives, respectively. The design is based on features that are known to promote improved student learning. The Classroom Manual contains the principles of operation for the most advanced electrical systems used today and covers design variations of components used by the different vehicle manufacturers. The book builds upon basic facts and theories and will help develop students' knowledge through its extensive coverage of component and system operation The Shop Manual covers the diagnostic processes for proper repairs and focuses more on the diagnostics of the components used within a system than on how to replace the component. The intent is to guide your students' thought processes toward finding the root cause of the problem, concentrating their attention on becoming a diagnostician and not a parts changer. Your students will learn how to develop a systematic approach to problem solving in order to isolate the root cause of the problem, thereby enhancing their ability to fix products right the first time. Photo Sequences are used to illustrate some of the common diagnostic procedures. Both Manuals are arranged in corresponding chapters, and topics within the chapters are linked between manuals by page references in the margins. Both volumes contain clear and thoughtfully-selected photos and illustrations. The margins of the pages include many special features of the series that are designed to underscore important points made in the running text, highlight safety concerns, and offer real world scenarios that the author has encountered in the shop.

The book that every parent needs. Written by the expert child psychologist, Dr Elizabeth Kilbey, from Channel 4's The Secret Life of 4, 5 and 6 Year Olds. 'Children who get too much screen time are at risk of anxiety disorders' - BBC News This is the book that every parent with a child under the age of 11 (in the latency stage of brain development) needs in order to navigate the tricky pathway of how much screen time to allow on a daily basis. Play has gone from a physical, creative experience using toys and imagination to something that now involves sitting down alone for hours at a time. Parents are dealing with children who don't listen to them, who are unable to concentrate for very long, who refuse to do homework and who constantly battle against them for more screen time. In this book, Dr Elizabeth Kilbey will offer tangible, practical advice about how to 'unplug' your child from their device so their online time doesn't become all-consuming and how we, as parents, can plug in to connect with our children.

Book Description :

Knowledge Unplugged announces the results of a major survey on knowledge management practice within the most influential companies in the world, by the most influential management consultancy group in the world. The McKinsey Knowledge Management team interviewed top executives and also investigated how far their plans were implemented in practise, in 40 companies in the US, Europe and Japan. In many companies they discovered a significant gap between the vision at the top and the reality on the shop floor. Knowledge Unplugged draws together their findings and presents a practical guide to improving knowledge building and sharing at all levels within an organisation, vividly illustrated with case studies of best practice and common pitfalls. It also goes further and challenges companies to abandon convention and to liberate Knowledge Management from the hands of the IT department! They argue that Knowledge management is much more than simply installing a new database and can only be successful when it is at the heart of everyday personal exchanges, personal incentives and personal responsibilities at every level of the firm.

Book Description :

Years of Black, Brown and Otherized bodies, of all ages, dying in pursuit of dignity and resistant to injustice didn’t push people into action until being exposed as a nation, unapologetically living the ideals of colonialism. Through the representation of a presidential candidate and ultimately as the one sitting in office though known to not have been elected by the people, are the ideas of democracy, equality and justice truly in question. As White fragility increases, the population of those convinced that privilege was irrelevant and that we were in an era of post-colonialism, neo-liberalism, or a new form of racism, has decreased. Moving towards social justice requires reclaiming the building of community. The reclaiming pertains to the practices that indigenous communities modeled for not only survival but for the sharing of space, resources, knowledge, and building a shared value system that extended human interaction—inviting originality and agency.

Book Description :

While the growth of computational thinking has brought new awareness to the importance of computing education, it has also created new challenges. Many educational initiatives focus solely on the programming aspects, such as variables, loops, conditionals, parallelism, operators, and data handling, divorcing computing from real-world contexts and applications. This decontextualization threatens to make learners believe that they do not need to learn computing, as they cannot envision a future in which they will need to use it, just as many see math and physics education as unnecessary. The Handbook of Research on Tools for Teaching Computational Thinking in P-12 Education is a cutting-edge research publication that examines the implementation of computational thinking into school curriculum in order to develop creative problem-solving skills and to build a computational identity which will allow for future STEM growth. Moreover, the book advocates for a new approach to computing education that argues that while learning about computing, young people should also have opportunities to create with computing, which will have a direct impact on their lives and their communities. Featuring a wide range of topics such as assessment, digital teaching, and educational robotics, this book is ideal for academicians, instructional designers, teachers, education professionals, administrators, researchers, and students.
