Issues in Education and Technology: Policy Guidelines and Strategies
This volume provides policy guidelines and strategies for those who have to make critical decisions about the use of technology in education systems and institutions. To fully understand the implications of any technology for education and national development, we need to explore its growth and impact. This book explores the socio-economic, political and cultural implications of new technology and looks at the critical issues it throws up. It also looks at the policies and strategies suggested for decision-makers. The work concentrates on four broad areas in which technology can have the greatest influence and impact on education. These areas are: access and equity; management and efficiency; pedagogy and quality; and human resource development. It explores the current and potential role of technology in each of these areas, within an appropriate historical, socio-cultural and economic framework. This analysis seeks to promote a better understanding of the key issues, and help readers to relate the issues to their own experience and thus to improve their decision-making.

From the Desk of the Middle School Principal: Leadership Responsive to the Needs of Young Adolescents
An honest and insightful look at the real world of middle school leadership. Grounded in the belief that schools should be responsive to the developmental needs of their students, the authors explore the distinct nature of the middle school, the appropriate responses required from middle school principals, and introduce a model for developmentally responsive leadership.

Education in Deprived Areas: Outcomes, Inputs and Processes
What processes contribute to the disadvantaging of schools in deprived areas? Is there a geography of attainment? Are schools in deprived areas less effective than those in non-deprived areas? Although it is often assumed that there is a close connection between social disadvantage and low educational achievement, the patterns and processes of this connection are frequently unclear. Education in Deprived Areas is based on a research review undertaken for the Social Exclusion Unit. It examines recent research in order to unravel the complex relationship between inputs, processes and educational outcomes and explores the implications of these findings for area-based initiatives, such as Education Action Zones and Excellence in Cities.

Assessment Practice in Student Affairs: An Applications Manual
A must read for anyone interested in understanding and developing assessments that can demonstrate the efficacy of their programs and services. A perfect sequel to 'Assessment in Student Affairs.' - Charles C. Schroeder, vice chancellor for student affairs, University of Missouri Columbia Upcraft and Schuh tell us when, where, how, and why we should conduct assessments differently within a wide variety of student service departments. Read and apply! - Gary R. Hanson, professor, Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, Arizona State University. When Assessment in Student Affairs first appeared in 1996, readers found a practical context for viewing the power of assessment across the domain of student services. Since then, John H. Schuh and M. Lee Upcraft have received numerous requests for more specific guidance to assessing and communicating the value of student affairs. This manual continues the work begun in their earlier book and provides a full range of tools for conducting effective assessments. The authors begin with an overview of the assessment process and then detail a range of methodologies, approaches, and issues - explaining how to use them and when to recruit expertise from other campus sources. Drawing from the latest practice and a wealth of case studies, they discuss: qualitative assessment, including how to conduct focus groups; quantitative assessment, including how to select and design instruments; data collection and analysis, including mailed questionnaires, telephone surveys, and Web-based surveys; assessing diverse needs, satisfaction, outcomes, environments, cost effectiveness, and accreditation; specialized assessment studies, including how to review dropouts, graduates, academic success, and group educational programs; select programs in student services, including first-year programs, recreation programs, financial aid, admissions, residence halls, college unions, health services, career services, counseling services, judicial affairs, and Greek life; and organizational and ethical approaches to assessment.

Choice Conservatives, liberals, and radicals alike see education as a pivotal forum for the struggle over the fulfillment of American Dreams. Eleanor Smeal, Phyllis Schlafly, Russell Kirk, and Henry Giroux, among others, representing contrasting points of view, vie for acceptance of their theories on the major issues in American education: religion in public schools; computers in the classroom; sex education; the proper role of teachers (technician, professional, or intellectual); vocationalism versus critical education. This rare opportunity to examine the divisions, and the surprising overlaps, between the perspectives of this country's policy makers and idea formulators brings a major and important perspective to the current educational debate and the future of education, for scholars and students alike.

Creating a Culture for High-Performing Schools: A Comprehensive Approach to School Reform and Dropout Prevention
A high-performing school is described as one where student achievement is high and student and teacher absenteeism is low. Student behavior is such that teachers seldom have to control them or tell them what to do. This results in greater time on task, higher teacher morale, low teacher absenteeism, and improved parental support. One other distinctive feature of a high-performing school is that the student peer group is a positive force and not a negative force. The end result is a school culture where faculty and students trust and care about each other, and there is a cooperative attitude.

Educational Leadership and Moral Literacy: The Dispositional Aims of Moral Leaders
What makes a moral person moral? Who decides what morality means? What makes leadership practice moral? In today's schools, what stands as moral leadership? These are questions that reflect the complexity integral to the calculus of human morality, especially in a world that is defined daily by its variant meanings of morality, its acts of immorality. The school as an educational setting is or should be a decidedly moral center of the society; it is the natural intersect between the family and the multi-dimensional nature of public life. Educational Leadership and Moral Literacy addresses these questions, situating the reader in a conversation that examines the meaning and nature of moral leadership through the lens of moral literacy and the dispositional aims of moral leadership in educational settings. The contributing authors extend an argument that the work of leader educators and practitioners alike must continuously be re-articulated around the dispositional aims aligned with a moral, democratic education. Educators must be concerned with developing the moral, intellectual, and aesthetic dimensions of the educational leader as a moral person.

Faith Schools in the 21st Century
Faith schools are in the news all over the world. Are they a good thing or a bad thing in a modern pluralist society? This volume examines that contemporary debate concerning faith schooling, using a variety of conceptual and educational lenses. Edited by Stephen McKinney, this collection provides a scholarly, in-depth, detailed examination of the key themes in the current debate. The contributions are not written from a particular form of faith schooling but reflect the great variety and diversity in faith schooling across the English speaking world. Each examines the debate from both internal and external perspectives. The book first provides an overview of the key features of the contemporary academic debate around faith schools. This is followed by an examination of the relationship and coherence between faith schools and the expectations of education within liberal democracy. Further on, it explores the interface between faith schools and citizenship, and discusses the challenges of including students who are not Catholics in Catholic schools. Faith Schools in the Twenty-first Century concludes by postulating possible futures for faith schooling. This is a collection that reflects the international dimension of the debate in the English speaking world. Contributions from leading academics in the UK are complemented by scholarly contributions from the US and Australia. As such, it will appeal to student teachers preparing to teach in faith schools, as well as to educational administrators grappling with a fierce debate.

OU Women: Undoing Educational Obstacles
This book is about women stirred up over higher education. It's about beating the system and beating the odds...It's about people taking charge of their lives and writing new futures regardless of the past. - From the Author's Preface. OU Women concerns fourteen women who in their twenties, thirties or forties felt bored, unrewarded or trapped, in work or in the home - or just frustrated by their lack of education. It is about the way in which the Open University helped these women to turn their lives around with a bachelor's degree. Through a series of interviews these Open University Women here recount their lives, from the time they braved their first foundation course, through the attainment of their degrees, and to the changes this learning has made to their situations.Misha Hebel is no longer a receptionist, but a management consultant; Teresa Davis has changed career from a piano teacher to a cytogeneticist; and Shirleen Stibbe is no more a housewife, but, and as her first ever job, is now an actuary. Building on these first-hand accounts, Patricia Lunneborg develops an account of the obstacles that turn women away from education. These include the reduced opportunities that can result from a person's class and sex, the detrimental effects of early streaming on a pupil's confidence, and male bias in the learning environment. Such factors come into play at school, if not before; yet this is just the beginning.Quite likely handicapped by some or all of the above, in later life women find themselves aligned against further education not only by society's traditional conception of them - by what John Stuart Mill termed 'the tyranny of custom' - but also, if they are mothers, by the basic lack of fit between the demands of parenting and conventional university life. The Open University was brought into being in 1969 by Jennie Lee, Harold Wilson's Minister for the Arts, and now boasts over 140, 000 graduates. There are no entry qualifications, and as distance learning there is no burden of attendance. The OU is everyone's second chance, but especially women's second chance. With over half of its students female, the OU has a higher proportion of women to men than any other university.Along with its companion volume OU Men , OU Women will interest the ever increasing number of people involved in or considering an OU course, or any other distance learning programme. It will also be of value to those involved in the teaching and psychology of distance learning, and to anyone concerned with modern British society; with a foreword by the Rt Hon Betty Boothroyd.

Educational Administration: An Australian Perspective
Both the theory and practice of educational administration have undergone major changes in recent years. There is now more theoretical diversity in the field than at any other time, with influences from traditional and post-positivist science, subjectivism, ethics, critical theory and cultural studies. Similarly, social, political and economic factors have brought about new approaches to practice. Schools administration in particular is increasingly being dominated by decentralization and pressures for accountability on curriculum and educational outcomes.Educational Administration is the first Australian text to offer a comprehensive survey of theory, context and practice. It includes chapters from leading Australian scholars such as Richard Bates, Hedley Beare, Brian Caldwell, Gabriele Lakomski and Fazal Rizvi.

Emotional Dimensions of Educational Administration and Leadership
Emotional Dimensions of Educational Administration and Leadership explores foundational theories for emotional dimensions of educational administration and leadership as they influence our understanding, analysis and practice in the field. It covers a broad range of topics, such as ethics, authority, personality, social justice, gender discrimination, organisational culture, decision-making, accountability and marketisation. The first section, `Theoretical Foundations', includes discussion of the early modern romantic philosophy that produced the heroic notion of leadership, the idealist philosophy of Hegel, existential concerns through Kierkegaard, the contributions of psychoanalysis, and Habermasian critical theory. The second section, `Types of Emotional Analysis', includes examinations of the material culture, emotional economies, the politics of emotion, and the relationship between emotion and rationality. The last section, 'Critical and Contemporary Issues', includes critiques of the fear arising from accountability regimes, the political economy of the market model, a feminist critique of ideologies reflecting emotional investments, narrative expressions for the emotional context of teamwork, the problem of narcissism, and the emotional dimensions of role engagement. This volume explores an area that is only just re-emergent in the last few years. The collection demonstrates the relevance to practical issues and problems internationally, both within the organisational context and extra-organisationally with a focus on the application of emotional factors as they affect our understanding of, and practice in, educational organisations. The emotions of education affect the implementation of political values and culture within organisations.

The Early Years Professional's Complete Companion
Fully updated to reflect the changes to the Early Years Professional Status (EYPS) qualification, this second edition remains the essential handbook to support all those considering or working towards EYPS and on whichever pathway they embark. Organised into three parts, the text starts by leading you through the initial requirements for entry to the programme, providing an overview of the different pathways. It goes on to focus on the standards against which all EYP candidates are tested, and then finally looks at the new validation process and beyond. Although closely linked to the standards required for EYPS, and their relationship with the Early Years Foundation Stage, the book is not a standard-by-standard manual; it supports you in developing an organic, holistic perspective on childcare and education, combining practical skills with knowledge development. The text includes case studies based on real practice scenarios, ideas for practical activities, further reading, reflection, interviews and advice from EYPS candidates who have successfully negotiated the validation process.

Creating Learning Communities - A Practical Guide to Winning Support, Organizing for Change & Implementing Programs (Paper Only): A Practical Guide to Winning Support, Organizing for Change, and Implementing Programs
One of the most powerful ideas in higher education today is transforming campuses into learning communities. At last, Shapiro and Levine have given us-faculty, students, and administrators-a handbook on how to accomplish this. It is one of those too rare and much-needed volumes on translating theory into practice by authors who have actually done it. -Arthur Levine, president, Teachers College, Columbia University Shapiro and Levine convince us that learning communities address what we now know about how students learn inside and outside the classroom. Read this book for conceptual rationale, practical answers to implementation questions, and passionate voices that speak for a social contract among students, faculty members, and institutions, a contract enacted and assessed for the benefit of all. -Barbara L. Cambridge, director, Teaching Initiatives, American Association for Higher Education In recent years, learning communities-a curricular innovation that integrates different facets of the undergraduate experience to enhance and enrich learning-have become the most promising new strategy for promoting student success and satisfaction in college. Now campus professionals have a practical, insightful guide to the essentials of this timely and rewarding new program area, including how to design, fund, staff, manage, and integrate learning communities into different campuses. Drawing from their own experience as well as from experiences of campuses around the country, Nancy S. Shapiro and Jodi H. Levine present a pragmatic blueprint for creating a learning community that can be adapted to almost any campus culture-including specific guidance ranging from who should be placed on planning committees to samples of syllabi for interdisciplinary courses, sample clusters of classes, monthly activity calendars, lists of competencies and expected student outcomes, and other operational program models.
