New Literacies and Teacher Learning examines the complexities of teacher professional development today in relation to new literacies and digital technologies, set within the wider context of strong demands for teachers to be innovative and to improve students’ learning outcomes. Contributors hail from Argentina, Australia, Canada, Finland, Mexico, Norway, and the U.S., and work in a broad range of situations, grade levels, activities, scales, and even national contexts. Projects include early year education through to adult literacy education and university contexts, describing a range of approaches to taking up new literacies and digital technologies within diverse learning practices. While the authors present detailed descriptions of using various digital resources like movie editing software, wikis, video conferencing, Twitter, and YouTube, they all agree that digital «stuff» – while important – is not the central concern. Instead, what they foreground in their discussions are theory-informed pedagogical orientations, collaborative learning theories, the complexities of teachers’ workplaces, and young people’s interests. Thus, a key premise in this collection is that teaching and learning are about deep engagement, representing meanings in a range of ways. These include acknowledging relationships and knowledge; thinking critically about events, phenomena, and processes; and participating in valued social and cultural activities. The book shows how this kind of learning doesn’t simply occur in a one-off session, but takes time, commitment, and multiple opportunities to interact with others, to explore, play, make mistakes, and get it right.

A must-have guide that covers all the new features of Visual Studio 2010 Visual Studio allows you to create and manage programming projects for the Windows platform, and the new 2010 version has undergone a major overhaul comprised of significant changes. Written by an author team of veteran programmers and developers, Professional Visual Studio 2010 gets you quickly up to speed on what you can expect from the newest version of Visual Studio. This book's first section is dedicated to familiarizing you with the core aspects of Visual Studio 2010. Everything you need is contained in the first five chapters, from the IDE structure and layout to the various options and settings you can change to make the user interface synchronize with your own way of doing things. From there, the remainder of the book is broken into 11 parts: Getting Started: In this part, you learn how to take control of your projects and organize them in ways that work with your own style. Digging Deeper: Though the many graphical components of Visual Studio that make a programmer's job easier are discussed in many places throughout this book, you often need help when you're in the process of actually writing code. This part deals with features that support the coding of applications such as IntelliSense, code refactoring, and creating and running unit tests In the latest version of the .NET framework, enhancements were added to support dynamic languages and move towards feature parity between the two primary .NET languages, C# and VB. This part covers changes to these languages, as well as looking at a range of features that will help you write better and more consistent code. Rich Client and Web Applications: For support building everything from Office add-ins to cloud applications, Visual Studio enables you to develop applications for a wide range of platforms. These two parts cover the application platforms that are supported within Visual Studio 2010, including ASP.NET and Office, WPF, Silverlight 2 and ASP.NET MVC. Data: A large proportion of applications use some form of data storage. Visual Studio 2010 and the .NET Framework include strong support for working with databases and other data sources. This part examines how to use DataSets, the Visual Database Tools, LINQ, Synchronization Services and ADO.NET Entity Framework to build applications that work with data. It also shows you how you can then present this data using Reporting. Application Services: Through the course of building an application you are likely to require access to services that may or may not reside within your organization. This part covers core technologies such as WCF, WF, Synchronization Services and WCF RIA services that you can use to connect to these services. Configuration and Internationalization: The built-in support for configuration files allows you to adjust the way an application functions on the fly without having to rebuild it. Furthermore, resource files can be used to both access static data and easily localize an application into foreign languages and cultures. This part of the book shows how to use .NET configuration and resource files. Debugging: Application debugging is one of the more challenging tasks developers have to tackle, but correct use of the Visual Studio 2010 debugging features will help you analyze the state of the application and determine the cause of any bugs. This part examines the rich debugging support provided by the IDE. Build and Deployment: In addition to discussing how to build your solutions effectively and getting applications into the hands of your end users, this part also deals with the process of upgrading your projects from previous versions. Customizing and Extending Visual Studio: If the functionality found in the previous part isn't enough to help you in your coding efforts, Microsoft has made Visual Studio 2010 even more extensible. This part covers the automation model, how to write add-ins and macros, and then how to use a new extensibility framework, MEF, to extend Visual Studio 2010. Visual Studio Ultimate: The final part of the book examines the additional features only available in the Premium and Ultimate versions of Visual Studio 2010. In addition, you'll also learn how the Team Foundation Server provides an essential tool for managing software projects. Though this breakdown of the Visual Studio feature set provides the most logical and easily understood set of topics, you may need to look for specific functions that will aid you in a particular activity. To address this need, references to appropriate chapters are provided whenever a feature is covered in more detail elsewhere in the book. Professional Visual Studio 2010 is for all developers new to Visual Studio as well as those programmers who have some experience but want to learn about features they may have previously overlooked. If you are familiar with the way previous versions of Visual Studio worked, you may want to skim over Part I, which deals with the basic constructs that make up the user interface, and move on to the remainder of the book where the new features found in Visual Studio 2010 are discussed in detail. While you may be familiar with most of Part I, it is worth reading this section in case there are features of Visual Studio 2010 that you haven't seen or used before. If you're just starting out, you'll greatly benefit from the first part, where basic concepts are explained and you're introduced to the user interface and how to customize it to suit your own style.

Buy this book, (read it) and become a social media ninja for good. Don't just take our word for it... Twitter is a phenomena. It's new and fast evolving - launched as a tool with no plan it quickly emerged as THE microblog platform on the web. BUT it is vast and quickly changing - this guide offers an easy way in to twitter, to maximise returns and to avoid the time-suck that poor social media is. Hat's off to Jeremy & Jim for making it accessible and clear. Like a snow flake in an avalanche or a drinking from a fire hydrant it is easy to be overwhelmed by Twitter - but this book is clear about how to increase your signal to noise ratio, how to engage effectively and above all - how to get returns for your messaging so you are effective tweeter and not just a twit. ~ @Tom_Alcott, Tom Alcott, The Social Network Company.

"I wish I had read this before I decided to make an account on twitter, it would have been so much easier to understand. The book is the ideal tool for people who don’t do social network sites. After reading the book I have decided to deactivate my initial attempts and follow the books direction. I never thought Twitter was such a powerful tool for charities and voluntary groups, the way you have explained the power and how charities can benefit from it is brilliant. I have many spent hours ploughing through funding searches, trusts and donors when all the time the very thing I was afraid of had all the answers and contacts. Jim thanks from converting the unconverted." ~ @BdaaTerry, Terry Moseley British Disabled Angling Association Now I finally 'get' Twitter.This comprehensive yet readable guide is a must-read for anyone wanting to market anything using the medium of the 'Twittersphere'. ~ @mrjtrading, Mick Wood, Web Hosting & Design for Christians I can recommend this excellent guide having read through it myself. The guide is thorough and I am sure even seasoned tweeters will find interesting tips by reading it." ~ @eleanor_ila, Eleanor Lisney, Independent Living Aids and Equipment

A Phenomenological Study Of 21 29 Year Old Teachers Perceptions Of Using Twitter For Professional Development

This transcendental phenomenological study explored the perception of 21-29-year-old public school teachers’ use of Twitter in their professional development. However, while teachers in the 21-29-year-old age range were part of the demographic dominating online social media use in general, they did not use online social networks for professional development purposes as much as their older peers (Carpenter & Krutka, 2014; Visser et al., 2014). While professional development was important for improving teachers’ classroom performance and student achievement (Coldwell, 2017), traditional professional development often was ineffective in changing classroom instruction (Carpenter & Krutka, 2014; Dingle, Brownwell, Leko, Boardman, & Haager, 2011; Harcourt & Jones, 2016; Visser, Evering, & Barrett, 2014). Also, lack of relative professional development was cited as a reason teachers leave the profession within a few years of joining (Barry & Shields, 2017). Using Twitter for professional development was used by older teachers effectively, but younger teachers did not use it for potentially helpful professional development (Carpenter & Krutka, 2014; Visser et al., 2014). The theoretical frameworks of this study include sociocultural learning (Vygotsky, 1978), social networking theory (Moreno, 1946), and communities of practice (Lave & Wenger, 1991). Participants selected were six licensed K-12 public school teachers aged 21-29. The setting was a South Carolina suburban public middle school. Data collection methods included interviews, focus groups, and observation of Twitter use after participation in a professional development session on using Twitter in education. Data analysis included horizonalization, reduction and elimination, clustering, and thematizing recommended by Moustakas (1994) to develop themes to understand how teachers age 21-29 perceive using online social networks for professional development.
