The need to move to the next stage of transforming the national educational platform from the industrial, regimented teaching system of the 20th century to the 21st century digital and blended learning system on a national scale. Rather than being a case for continued experimental pieces of reform, the book calls for a national expansion, implemented systemically, that replaces the outdated system. The book affirms that, while experiments of innovation are recognized and appreciated, the need to genuinely look at the nationwide transformation of the entire system will be a better position to ensure a rethinking of economic, academic and measurement interests.

Special education in the United State is based on the concept of access—public schools are open to all children. But access is no longer a sufficient foundation. Approaches and accommodations that lead to academic success are increasingly demanded for those with learning disabilities. Functional, independent-living, and employable skills are requisite, but rare, for those with serious handicapping conditions. Since the last reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Act, four events have transpired that will have a dramatic impact on the next iteration of the federal law: the increase in the number of children diagnosed with autism, the rise of applied behavior analysis, the birth of social media, and the reality of unbundling. In How Autism Is Reshaping Special Education: The Unbundling of IDEA, Claypool and McLaughlin explore the effect of these events on a special education process burdened by regulation, where advances in the behavioral sciences and neurosciences blur the lines between education and medicine, and where social media fosters aggressive advocacy for specific disabilities. 2018 International Book Awards: Finalist Education/Academic 2018 Next Generation Indie Book Awards: Finalist Education/Academic (Non-Fiction) 2017 Best Book Awards: Finalist Education/Academic

Universities are viewed by many as institutions that should impart quality education to enrolled students and foster a learning environment, which, in turn, would benefit the accumulation of knowledge worldwide. Enhancing university education is at the top of most governmental agendas. In this knowledge-driven economy, every nation wants to have the world's top-ranked universities. Every parent wants to send their child to a top university. And most people want to have a good university degree that gives them good prospects for landing a respectable job. But universities are currently in turmoil: mass redundancies and department closures have become routine. Once revered as ivory towers of learning, today’s universities are forced to regard their students as consumers and customers. Many universities are now torn between labor market forces and increasing public expectations and accountability. University administration departments struggle with declining funding and increased cost scrutiny. Challenged on multiple fronts, universities are faced with conflicting agendas. They are expected to develop world-class reputations in research (an academic agenda) while teaching increasing numbers of students (a commercial agenda). They are required to be engines of economic development while maintaining comprehensive scholarly profiles. Numerous reports and headlines predict the demise of universities, emphasizing that the current educational and business model is not viable. Reshaping Universities for Survival in the 21st Century: New Opportunities and Paradigms suggests possible paths which universities might take to survive in the future by providing a compelling account of the landscape of today’s universities and the challenges they face. Readers will learn about the current crises which universities face followed by an explanation of the ideologies and paradigms that have shaped the current academic landscape. New trends and concepts in university education are also explained, such as academic capitalism and MOOCs. Written in clear, easy-to-understand language, it is a must-read for anyone who studies, works or is interested in the higher education sector, including university and government leaders and educational policy makers.

Concerned by ongoing debates about higher education that talk past one another, the authors of this book show how to move beyond these and other obstacles to improve the student learning experience and further successful college outcomes. Offering an alternative to the culture of compliance in assessment and accreditation, they propose a different approach which they call the Learning System Paradigm. Building on the shift in focus from teaching to learning, the new paradigm encourages faculty and staff to systematically seek out information on how well students are learning and how well various areas of the institution are supporting the student experience and to use that information to create more coherent and explicit learning experiences for students. The authors begin by surveying the crowded terrain of reform in higher education and proceed from there to explore the emergence of this alternative paradigm that brings all these efforts together in a coherent way. The Learning System Paradigm presented in chapter two includes four key elements—consensus, alignment, student-centeredness, and communication. Chapter three focuses upon developing an encompassing notion of alignment that enables faculty, staff, and administrators to reshape institutional practice in ways that promote synergistic, integrative learning. Chapters four and five turn to practice, exploring the application of the paradigm to the work of curriculum mapping and assignment design. Chapter six focuses upon barriers to the work and presents ways to start and options for moving around barriers, and the final chapter explores ongoing implications of the new paradigm, offering strategies for communicating the impact of alignment on student learning. The book draws upon two recent initiatives in the United States: the Tuning process, adapted from a European approach to breaking down siloes in the European Union educational space; and the Degree Qualifications Profile (DQP), a document that identifies and describes core areas of learning that are common to institutions in the US. Many of the examples are drawn from site visit reports, self-reported activities, workshops, and project experience collected by the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA) between 2010 and 2016. In that six-year window, NILOA witnessed the use of Tuning and/or the DQP in hundreds of institutions across the nation. Sponsored by the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA)

This document provides: (1) a synthesis of more than 180 research studies cited in the "Research Windows" column that appeared in "The Computing Teacher" journal between 1985 and 1989, and (2) reprints of the columns themselves. In the synthesis section the studies are grouped into five general categories with various subheadings containing bibliographic references for that specific topic followed by a brief discussion. The categories are: (1) curriculum-related instructional support, i.e., the impact of computers in the traditional academic subject areas of language arts, mathematics, and science; (2) computer impact on other learning, with subtopics on database usage, preschool children and computers, Logo, programming (non-Logo), and computer science instruction; (3) software, which includes evaluation and design features such as graphics, types of feedback, and computer-controlled versus student-controlled issues; (4) teacher-focused studies, which include surveys of teachers' attitudes, issues related to teacher training, and factors affecting implementation of computers in the classroom; and (5) other topics, including cost-effectiveness studies, research summaries, and gender and computer use. A brief summary of overall trends concludes this section. Section two reproduces the actual "Research Windows" columns which are referenced in the first section. (DB)

Technology enriched school projects are initiatives in real school settings that try to reduce or remove problems and constraints that hamper the effective use of computers in the schools. These projects are based, not on technology, but on educational need and vision. They examine the atmosphere and functioning of a school that uses technology for change and stimulation. The following case studies from technology enriched schools are presented: (1) "Mount Newton: A Technology-Enriched Middle School" (Keven Elder); (2) "California Model Technology Schools: The Monterey Perspective" (Kam Matray); (3) "Apple Classroom of Tomorrow: West High School" (Robert Howard and Jane Pratt); (4) "Technology-Enriched Schools in the Netherlands" (Jef Moonen and Jos Beishuizen); (5) "An Information Technology School Project in Romania" (Ion Diamandi); (6) "Computerization of an Israeli School System: Project Comptown" (Elad Peled, Zimra Peled, and Gad Alexander); (7) "School of the Future Project at F. M. Black Middle School" (Richard A. Smith and Anthony Sassi); (8) "The Quinte Lighthouse Project" (Robert Holt); and (9) "Netherhall School: Building for the Future on the Experience of the Past" (Alastair J. Wells). Synthesis and reflections are provided by the editors in "Summarizing the Case Studies of Technology-Enriched Schools" and "Reflections on Technology-Enriched Schools." Five appendixes summarize details about the projects. (Contains 33 references.) (SLD)
