Student's Manual of Job Interviews: Advice on cracking job interviews for technology students by Ashish Patil 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 26 minutes ago

This book was born out of sincere desire to help technology students to get their first job. It is basically a guide that contains dos and don'ts when preparing for a job interview. The contents of the book come from my 17 years of work experience in the software industry, which includes interviewing students and working with interns. Frankly speaking there are many books on resume and job interview preparation. This book however is specifically written for technology students, engineers and graduates. As a technology student, resume preparation and handling interviews can be tricky. Also, when you are a 'fresher', you have little or zero work experience. Hence, generic advice on resume creation and handling job interviews might be insufficient. This book is not about commonly asked questions and answers. Rather, it contains some practical advice, dos and don'ts in a very concise format. This book will tell you what are the general expectations from a 'fresher' in terms of ...

In this book, we have tried to balance the aspects of having fun and learning by expressing your understanding in the form of doodles and stories. Drawing is ancient art, yet remains a key 21st century skill that improves visual reasoning, memory, idea generation, lateral thinking and inference. Drawing is not something that should be confined only to art lessons, it is skill that can play a role in many different subject's areas in school, education and later on in the workplace. Spontaneous drawing or doodling may even relieve stress. Doodling is the artistic process that enhances problem-solving skills in children. To draw lines on paper and associate them with colors and figures can help kids perceive problems from different perspectives and evaluate innovative solutions. As parents and friends to two curious kids, we are constantly looking for ideas to engage them. The best one so far was allowing them to scribble and doodle on the walls.

Harriet Tubman: A Captivating Guide to an American Abolitionist Who Became the Most Famous Conductor of the Underground Railroad by Captivating History 4.7 Stars (15 Reviews)    Price verified 51 minutes ago

If you want to discover the captivating life of Harriet Tubman, then keep reading... Free History BONUS Inside! Harriet Tubman was known as a "conductor" on the "Underground Railroad." But this wasn't a railroad that carried trains and freight but rather human lives that were desperately seeking freedom. It was a clandestine group of individuals (hence the name "underground") scattered across the United States and Canada who helped facilitate the migration of those ensnared in the South's scourge of slavery to the so-called free states and provinces of the North. Harriet's years of bondage were dreadful, and she had the scars to prove it. She also had recurring headaches from when a heavy two-pound weight used for weighing produce struck her in the head. Neither her scars nor her headaches would ever leave her, and they served as a constant reminder of what she had gone through. In fact, some biographies assert that as she got older, the headaches only grew worse. But Harriet ...

Consorting And Collaborating In The Education Market Place (Education Policy Perspectives) by Chris Husbands (Routledge) Price verified one day ago

This text offers descriptions and analyses of some of the different ways in which schools and other educational institutions have started to establish new collaborative relationships in today's competitive educational marketplace. Using case studies, the book describes examples of such collaborative structures.; Educational consortia have been established as a vehicle for professional and curriculum development, as a source of mutual support and as a condition of mutual survival. As the "LEA monopolies" have been forced to shed many of their traditional functions or schools have opted out, schools have found it necessary to re-create parts of their collaborative structures out of sheer self- Interest.; For Some Educators Who Continue To Be Attached To Notions Of "an educational service" and professional collegiality in the provision of such a service, inter-institutional collaboration becomes seen as something to be valued independently of the instrumental benefits which it provides. ...

Teaching for Excellence and Equity: Analyzing Teacher Characteristics, Behaviors and Student Outcomes with TIMSS (IEA Research for Education Book 6) by Nathan Burroughs (Springer) Price verified 2 hours ago

This open access book examines the interrelationship of national policy, teacher effectiveness, and student outcomes with a specific emphasis on educational equity. Using data from the IEA's Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) conducted between 1995 and 2015, it investigates grade four and grade eight data to assess trends in key teacher characteristics (experience, education, preparedness, and professional development) and teacher behaviors (instructional time and instructional content), and how these relate to student outcomes. Taking advantage of national curriculum data collected by TIMSS to assess changes in curricular strategy across countries and how these may be related to changes in teacher and student factors, the study focuses on the distributional impact of curriculum and instruction on students, paying particular attention to overall inequalities and variations in socioeconomic status at the student and country level, and how such factors have ...

Gender Differences in Computer and Information Literacy: An In-depth Analysis of Data from ICILS (IEA Research for Education Book 8) by Eveline Gebhardt (Springer) Price verified one hour ago

This open access book presents a systematic investigation into internationally comparable data gathered in ICILS 2013. It identifies differences in female and male students' use of, perceptions about, and proficiency in using computer technologies. Teachers' use of computers, and their perceptions regarding the benefits of computer use in education, are also analyzed by gender. When computer technology was first introduced in schools, there was a prevailing belief that information and communication technologies were 'boys' toys'; boys were assumed to have more positive attitudes toward using computer technologies. As computer technologies have become more established throughout societies, gender gaps in students' computer and information literacy appear to be closing, although studies into gender differences remain sparse. The IEA's International Computer and Information Literacy Study (ICILS) is designed to discover how well students are prepared for study, work, and life in the ...

Young People's Views of Government, Peaceful Coexistence, and Diversity in Five Latin American Countries: IEA International Civic and Citizenship ... by Wolfram Schulz (Springer) Price verified one day ago

This open access report presents findings from the five Latin American countries that participated in the second cycle of the IEA International Civic and Citizenship Education Study (ICCS 2016). ICCS 2016 investigated the ways in which a range of countries are preparing their young people to undertake their roles as citizens during the second decade of the 21st century. The study also responded to new challenges in civic and citizenship education, and its findings allow robust comparisons of lower-secondary students' attitudes to and perceptions of a wide range of aspects related to civics and citizenship. The results presented in this report come mainly from data collected via a regional Latin American student questionnaire. The findings provide insights into Latin American lower-secondary students' thoughts on government practices (e.g., corruption and authoritarian government), their attitudes toward peaceful coexistence (e.g., use of violence, disobedience to the law, empathy), ...

Lines of Inquiry in Mathematical Modelling Research in Education (ICME-13 Monographs) by Gloria Ann Stillman (Springer) Price verified 2 hours ago

This open access book is based on selected presentations from Topic Study Group 21: Mathematical Applications and Modelling in the Teaching and Learning of Mathematics at the 13th International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME 13), held in Hamburg, Germany on July 24-31, 2016. It contributes to the theory, research and teaching practice concerning this key topic by taking into account the importance of relations between mathematics and the real world. Further, the book addresses the "balancing act" between developing students' modelling skills on the one hand, and using modelling to help them learn mathematics on the other, which arises from the integration of modelling into classrooms. The contributions, prepared by authors from 9 countries, reflect the spectrum of international debates on the topic, and the examples presented span schooling from years 1 to 12, teacher education, and teaching modelling at the tertiary level. In addition the book highlights professional ...

Leapfrogging Inequality: Remaking Education to Help Young People Thrive by Rebecca Winthrop (Brookings Institution Press) Price verified one day ago

Exemplary stories of innovation from around the world In an age of rising inequality, getting a good education increasingly separates the haves from the have nots. In countries like the United States, getting a good education is one of the most promising routes to upper-middle-class status, even more so than family wealth. Experts predict that by 2030, 825 million children will reach adulthood without basic secondary-level skills, and it will take a century for the most marginalized youth to achieve the educational levels that the wealthiest enjoy today. But these figures do not even account for the range of skills and competencies needed to thrive today in work, citizenship, and life. In a world where the ability to manipulate knowledge and information, think critically, and collaboratively solve problems are essential to thrive, access to a quality education is crucial for all young people. In Leapfrogging Inequality, researchers chart a new path for global education by examining ...

Early Algebra: Research into its Nature, its Learning, its Teaching (ICME-13 Topical Surveys) by Carolyn Kieran (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 26 minutes ago

This survey of the state of the art on research in early algebra traces the evolution of a relatively new field of research and teaching practice. With its focus on the younger student, aged from about 6 years up to 12 years, this volume reveals the nature of the research that has been carried out in early algebra and how it has shaped the growth of the field. The survey, in presenting examples drawn from the steadily growing research base, highlights both the nature of algebraic thinking and the ways in which this thinking is being developed in the primary and early middle school student. Mathematical relations, patterns, and arithmetical structures lie at the heart of early algebraic activity, with processes such as noticing, conjecturing, generalizing, representing, justifying, and communicating being central to students' engagement.

By a succession of living pictures, as it were, this book shows the eminent naturalist in the very act of teaching. Sometimes he himself speaks, sometimes distinguished pupils of his reveal in their own words the process by which they were led to nature through direct and independent observation. The enthusiasm of their accounts is contagious. This collection of illustrative extracts on the ideals and practice of Louis Agassiz is probably unique in giving the actual methods of a great man of science in developing good students who could, in their turn, wisely instruct others. The book should be in the hands of all teachers, and of those who are preparing to teach.

Motivational Profiles in TIMSS Mathematics: Exploring Student Clusters Across Countries and Time (IEA Research for Education Book 7) by Gavin T. L. Brown (Springer) Price verified 4 hours ago

This open access book presents a person-centered exploration of student profiles, using variables related to motivation to do school mathematics derived from the IEA's Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) data. Statistical cluster analysis is used to identify groups of students with similar motivational profiles, across grades and over time, for multiple participating countries. While motivational variables systematically relate to school outcomes, linear relationships can obscure the diverse makeup of student subgroups, each with varying combinations of motivation, emotions, and attitudes. In this book, a person-centered analysis of distinct and meaningful motivational profiles and their differences on sociodemographic variables and mathematics performance broadens understanding about the role that motivation characteristics play in learning and achievement in mathematics. Exploiting the richness of IEA's TIMSS data from many countries, extracted clusters ...

Rapid Story Development #5: The Moral Premise-How to Build a Bulletproof Narrative Engine for Any Story by Jeff Lyons (Storygeeks Press) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 24 hours ago

All the story experts talk about it. Screenwriters, novelists, short story writers -- everyone -- speaks about the importance of writing stories with a moral core, having characters who are flawed, creating heroes and heroines with relatable human foibles. But few if any of these experts talk about how to pull these things off in practice. The fact is, stories that lack a moral premise deliver flat, one dimensional, and passive characters -- and dull stories. Learning how to create stories with a moral center is a critical story development skill every writer needs to master. "Rapid Story Development: The Moral Premise-How to Build a Bulletproof Narrative Engine for Any Story" is a speciality e-book by Jeff Lyons that addresses this all-too-important issue of the moral premise: how to find one, how to build one, and how to use one to drive the dramatic engine of any story. But more than some academic examination, this e-book actually demonstrates how to deliver on the page in any ...

The Christian Philosophy of Education Explained by Stephen Perks 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified one hour ago

The deterioration of academic standards and discipline in state schools in the last twenty-five years has finally forced the issue of education upon the consciences of many Christians who would not otherwise have considered it. There is both good and bad in this. The crisis in education has led some to reconsider the whole issue of education and the place of Christian children in a state system that promotes secular humanism and multi-culturalism as a virtue, and discourages the traditional Christian world- view and its code of morality. This is surely good. Yet the fact that it has taken such a crisis to awaken Christian parents to their responsibilities as Christians in this areas is indicative of serious failure in the church's understanding of its calling in this world. It is a sad indictment upon the church's ministry, in particular, that this issue needed to be forced upon the consciences of Christians at all, but especially by a crisis in the practice of an alien religion, with ...

Building the Foundation: Whole Numbers in the Primary Grades: The 23rd ICMI Study (New ICMI Study Series) by Maria G. Bartolini Bussi (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 2 hours ago

This twenty-third ICMI Study addresses for the first time mathematics teaching and learning in the primary school (and pre-school) setting, while also taking international perspectives, socio-cultural diversity and institutional constraints into account. One of the main challenges of designing the first ICMI primary school study of this kind is the complex nature of mathematics at the early level. Accordingly, a focus area that is central to the discussion was chosen, together with a number of related questions. The broad area of Whole Number Arithmetic (WNA), including operations and relations and arithmetic word problems, forms the core content of all primary mathematics curricula. The study of this core content area is often regarded as foundational for later mathematics learning. However, the principles and main goals of instruction on the foundational concepts and skills in WNA are far from universally agreed upon, and practice varies substantially from country to country.

Sustainability, Human Well-Being, and the Future of Education by Justin W. Cook (Palgrave Macmillan) Price verified 9 hours ago

This open access book explores the key dimensions of a future education system designed to enable individuals, schools, and communities to achieve the twin twenty-first century challenges of sustainability and human well-being. For much of the twentieth century, Western education systems prepared students to enter the workforce, contribute to society and succeed in relatively predictable contexts. Today, people are at the controls of the planet -- making decisions that are dramatically reshaping social, economic, and environmental systems at a global scale. What is education's purpose in this new reality? What and how must we learn now? The volatility and uncertainty caused by digitalization, globalization, and climate change weave a common backdrop through each chapter. Using case studies drawn from Finland and the US, chapter authors explore various aspects of learning and education system design through the lenses of sustainability and human well-being to evaluate how our ...

Communicating Climate Change: A Guide for Educators (Cornell Series in Environmental Education) by Anne K. Armstrong (Comstock Publishing Associates) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 51 minutes ago

Environmental educators face a formidable challenge when they approach climate change due to the complexity of the science and of the political and cultural contexts in which people live. There is a clear consensus among climate scientists that climate change is already occurring as a result of human activities, but high levels of climate change awareness and growing levels of concern have not translated into meaningful action. Communicating Climate Change provides environmental educators with an understanding of how their audiences engage with climate change information as well as with concrete, empirically tested communication tools they can use to enhance their climate change program. Starting with the basics of climate science and climate change public opinion, Armstrong, Krasny, and Schuldt synthesize research from environmental psychology and climate change communication, weaving in examples of environmental education applications throughout this practical book. Each chapter ...

Forging the Ideal Educated Girl: The Production of Desirable Subjects in Muslim South Asia (Islamic Humanities Book 1) by Shenila Khoja-Moolji (University of California Press) 5.0 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press's Open Access publishing program for monographs. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. In Forging the Ideal Educated Girl, Shenila Khoja-Moolji traces the figure of the 'educated girl' to examine the evolving politics of educational reform and development campaigns in colonial India and Pakistan. She challenges the prevailing common sense associated with calls for women's and girls' education and argues that such advocacy is not simply about access to education but, more crucially, concerned with producing ideal Muslim woman-/girl-subjects with specific relationships to the patriarchal family, paid work, Islam, and the nation-state. Thus, discourses on girls'/ women's education are sites for the construction of not only gender but also class relations, religion, and the nation.

The Politics of Survival: Peirce, Affectivity, and Social Criticism (American Philosophy) by Lara Trout (Fordham University Press) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 26 minutes ago

How can sincere, well-meaning people unintentionally perpetuate discrimination based on race, sex, sexuality, or other socio-political factors? To address this question, Lara Trout engages a neglected dimension of Charles S. Peirce's philosophy - human embodiment - in order to highlight the compatibility between Peirce's ideas and contemporary work in social criticism. This compatibility, which has been neglected in both Peircean and social criticism scholarship, emerges when the body is fore-grounded among the affective dimensions of Peirce's philosophy (including feeling, emotion, belief, doubt, instinct, and habit). Trout explains unintentional discrimination by situating Peircean affectivity within a post-Darwinian context, using the work of contemporary neuroscientist Antonio Damasio to facilitate this contextual move. Since children are vulnerable, naïve, and dependent upon their caretakers for survival, they must trust their caretaker's testimony about reality. This ...

Rethinking Health Care Ethics by Stephen Scher (Palgrave Pivot) 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

?The goal of this open access book is to develop an approach to clinical health care ethics that is more accessible to, and usable by, health professionals than the now-dominant approaches that focus, for example, on the application of ethical principles. The book elaborates the view that health professionals have the emotional and intellectual resources to discuss and address ethical issues in clinical health care without needing to rely on the expertise of bioethicists. The early chapters review the history of bioethics and explain how academics from outside health care came to dominate the field of health care ethics, both in professional schools and in clinical health care. The middle chapters elaborate a series of concepts, drawn from philosophy and the social sciences, that set the stage for developing a framework that builds upon the individual moral experience of health professionals, that explains the discontinuities between the demands of bioethics and the experience and ...

This book sets out the agenda for the future of modern language teaching in schools. It aims to look beyond the dominant methods of second language teaching to a new approach emphasising the integration of language learning within the wider curriculum.

Curriculum Reform in the European Schools: Towards a 21st Century Vision by Sandra Leaton Gray (Palgrave Macmillan) Price verified one day ago

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license. This open access book examines the modern role of the European School system within the European Union, at a time when the global economy demands a new vision for contemporary education. The European schools are currently in a state of crisis: their 60-year-old tradition of bilingual and multilingual education is being strained by rapid EU expansion and the removal of English speaking teachers as a result of Brexit. Their tried and tested model of mathematics and science education has rapidly been overtaken by new developments in pedagogy and assessment research, while recruitment and retention of students and teachers has become increasingly fraught as European member states review what they are, and what they are not, prepared to fund. The authors draw on original and empirical research to assess the European Schools' place in a new Europe where the entire post-war European Project is potentially at risk. This well-researched ...

Men and the Classroom: Gender Imbalances in Teaching by John O'Flynn (Routledge) Price verified 9 minutes ago

The teaching of young children has long been dominated by women. This global phenomenon is firmly rooted in issues related to economic development, urbanization, the position of women in society, cultural definitions of masculinity and the values of children and childcare. Yet, amongst the media scare stories and moral panics about underachieving boys, there are surprisingly few empirically-supported answers to vital questions such as: • Is the feminisation of teaching really a problem? • How is the relationship of gender and teaching considered within a framework of feminist theory? • What are the perceptions of students of teaching, in comparison to other professions? • Why are so few men attracted to teaching? • Can more men be attracted into the classroom? The authors of this groundbreaking book have undertaken the largest, most in-depth study ever carried out on this topic, in order to assess both teachers and students' views across primary education.

Education in Scotland: Policy and Practice from Pre-School to Secondary by Margaret M Clark (Routledge) Price verified 5 hours ago

Education in Scotland is markedly different from what happens in the rest of the UK - with a different National Curriculum, school boards to oversee school management and a General Teaching Council which has been in existence since 1965. Whilst there are many examples of successful and innovative practice in Scotland, the system is quite often not recognised as different by writers who talk about the UK education system as if it were one smooth whole. This book describes recent developments in both legislation and practice in Scotland, drawing comparisons with the English system. Chapters cover: * administration and management * the professional competence of teachers * early years education provision * the 'National Curriculum' in Scotland * Secondary Education * Special Educational Needs

Subject Learning in the Primary Curriculum: Issues in English, Science and Maths by Jill Bourne (Routledge) Price verified 17 hours ago

The emphasis on subject knowledge in primary curricula is a world-wide phenomenon and has become increasingly the focus of attention in England, with the introduction of the National Curriculum and the appointment of subject co-ordinators in schools.

Teachers' Work in a Globalizing Economy by Alistair Dow (Routledge) Price verified 10 hours ago

Extended critical case studies provide a tangible working expression of the labour process of teaching, showing how teachers are simultaneously experiencing significant changes to their work, as well as responding in ways that actively shape these processes. For teachers and researchers, this book shows what processes are at work in the global economy which impact on, and sometimes control, the role of the teacher. It also reveals how teachers accommodate, resist or redefine their working circumstances, and explores methods researchers might employ in order to increase our understanding and knowledge of the effect of globalization on teaching.
