American education in the 21st century by Dan H Wishnietsky( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines American education at the turn of the new millennium. It reviews its history and suggests, in broad terms, where it may be headed in the 21st century. Topics considered include a brief survey of the education "scene" today, the notion of a global village and ramifications for a global curriculum, technology related to globalism, diversity and equity issues, ideological and political issues, economic matters, the health of students, and lifelong learning. Specific examples help make major points of thought meaningful. Matters of contention discussed include separation of church and state, instruction based on pedagogical values instead of politics or ideology, topic-specific content knowledge versus critical thinking, political correctness, and different types of schooling. Instructors need to stay current with continuing developments in world events, technology, and the ever-changing cultures, societal values, international relations, and diverse perspectives arising from globalization. These tasks can be daunting, especially as current knowledge quickly becomes outdated. Questions asked in this book are not rhetoric. They are posed with the intention of catalyzing critical thought in educators and those concerned about the future of schooling in the United States. The concluding list of references is categorized by chapter. (Rt)

Although most agree that well-planned uses of technology are an essential part of instruction, many teachers at all levels of schooling feel overwhelmed by the technology or left behind by its rapid advance. This brief guide is designed to help novices become literate in the use of basic Internet technologies. It is organized into five chapters. Chapter 1 provides a brief history of the Internet and how its resources may be used as a meaningful educational tool. Chapter 2 introduces the reader to the World Wide Web and how to access information at different Web sites. Chapter 3 lists the names and locations and gives a brief description of some of the more popular Web sites used by educators. Chapter 4 introduces additional Internet topics, such as telnet, file transfer, protocol newsgroups, and mailing lists. Chapter 5 discusses the use of Internet resources in the classroom and how to avoid content that may be considered inappropriate. A short glossary of terms is provided at the end of the guide. Terms that can be found in the glossary are italicized the first time they are used in the text. (Aef)

Hypermedia : the Integrated Learning Environment. Fastback 339 by Dan H Wishnietsky( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hypermedia is not a single technology; it is an integrated electronic environment that combines text, audio, and video into one large file. Users can explore information about a subject using several technologies at the same time. Although the technical foundation for hypermedia was established in the early 1970s, it was not until the late 1980s and early 1990s that the hardware for supporting hypermedia became readily available. In a hypermedia system, each component of stored information is a node, and the nodes are connected by paths. The paths that a user travels are determined by interest, experience, and need. Hypermedia systems have many classroom applications, and can revolutionize a student's view of learning with the hardware and software currently available. As hypermedia technology develops, the educational environment will advance beyond lectures, notetaking, and other common forms of learning. "Edutainment," the combining of education and entertainment, and virtual reality are extensions of hypermedia that promise to improve the learning environment. A 13-item resource list cites the names and addresses of organizations and journals that provide information about hypermedia. (Sld)
Using Electronic Mail in an Educational Setting. Fastback 316 by Dan H Wishnietsky( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part of the always-changing field of microcomputers is the growing use of electronic mail/message systems (emms), a general term for describing the transmission of messages using computers and telecommunications facilities. As a result of these advances, it is possible for administrators, teachers, staff, and students to have immediate access to personal messages, educational resources, information services, and each other--even when they are separated by great distances. Some varieties of emms include message distribution services, voice mail, document and picture transmission or fax, and computer teleconferencing. Emms may be used to record student grades, send memos, access databases, enhance communication between faculties, allow cooperative research, enhance subject-specific student projects, and promote excellence in extracurricular activities. Some problems to be aware of in emms include cost effectiveness, maintenance, training, access, and supervision. In the future, however, international cooperative networks may be used to share educational information, and develop multicultural curricula. A list of emms resources includes eight journals, five associations, four online sources, and three resource centers. (Db)
Establishing School Policies on Sexual Harassment. Fastback 370 by Dan H Wishnietsky( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This position paper asserts that sexual harassment in educational settings constitutes a serious problem and is on the increase, if the number of court cases involving alleged incidents of harassment in education is any indicator. Members of the academic community appear reluctant to confront incidents of sexual harassment and develop proactive policies to eliminate sexual harassment from the schools. A historical perspective of the development of this complex social problem is outlined. In earlier times women were regarded as possessions, with little social freedom. The adoption of Title vii of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 granted equal employment rights to women. Title ix of the 1972 Education Amendments threatened educational institutions with the possible loss of federal funding if they did not take steps to prevent discrimination; sexual harassment being defined as a form of discrimination. The 1980 Equal Opportunity Commission guidelines reflect the Title ix definition of sexual harassment. Research on the topic shows that sexual harassment is a continuing and increasing problem in secondary and postsecondary institutions, among women primarily, but also among males. Landmark legal cases involving the issue of sexual harassment are reviewed, with suggestions on models and procedures for establishing written policies for educational institutions. Prevention program models also are discussed. (Eh)
Using Computer Technology to Create a Global Classroom. Fastback 356 by Dan H Wishnietsky( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This brief information guide presents a model for developing a global classroom using computer-based technologies. The first chapter provides a working definition of global education and the reasons it is needed. Global networks enable students at all grade levels to acquire the knowledge and develop the skills to understand and guide their world. The next two chapters describe the computer-based technologies that can connect the classroom to the global community, as well as strategies for implementing these technologies. The final chapter discusses the impact that computers and global education will have on the curriculum, students, and society in general. A resource section lists 14 computer networks and organizations involved in global education for readers interested in learning more about the field. (Contains 5 references.) (Sld)
Brooks Global Studies Extended-Year Magnet School. Profiles ofExcellence by Dan H Wishnietsky( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Extending the school year and incorporating global education into the curriculum are two educational innovations that have developed in response to demand for improved educational quality. This handbook profiles how educators and parents in Greensboro, North Carolina, planned Brooks Magnet School and implemented its 210-day, year-round calendar, and global curriculum supported by emerging technologies. The handbook describes program implementation, activities, community resources, and outcomes. The school featured the use of educational technology, such as CD-Rom databases, to carry out global-classroom projects. The results exemplify the basics of good teaching. Students are involved with issues they regard as vital; with explanations of human differences; with the technology of information access; in planning areas of study; in applying ideals of fairness, equity, and justice; in real-life experiences; in heterogeneous groups; and in reflecting on their own lives and beliefs. A list of resources--organizations, CD-Roms, and World Wide Web URLs--are included. (Lmi)
