The globalization of science curricula by Oliver Stacey( )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Globalization is a powerful force with far reaching impacts on education and education policy. The growth of large scale international surveys of student achievement and the increasing role played by intergovernmental agencies in education means that the influence that globalization exerts on education is likely to increase even further in the future. This open access book provides a significant and timely investigation into the impacts that globalization has exerted on science curricula in a diverse range of countries using extensive data sets collected by the IEA between 1995 and 2015. Using a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods, this book considers the extent to which there have been changes to the intended and implemented science curricula in different countries over the last 20 years. Consideration is then given as to whether science curricula are becoming increasingly similar across countries over time. Finally the issue of whether the basis of an international core curriculum can be identified is addressed.  Readers will gain a unique insight into the extent to which globalization and large scale international assessments have influenced science curricula in the last 20 years within both the primary and secondary phases

Der pragmatische Programmierer by Andrew Hunt( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in German and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wie programmiert man gute Software? Was ist ein guter Programmierer? Viele Bücher sind geschrieben worden, um Prozesse, Abläufe, Code und Mitarbeiter zu verbessern -- betrachtet man aktuelle Software, scheint es bei der Umsetzung so vieler Tipps zu hapern. Schreibt ein guter Entwickler bloß fleißig acht Stunden tollen Code pro Tag? Andrew Hunt und David Thomas beantworten im erfolgreichen Pragmatic Programmer diese Frage, die man jetzt auch auf Deutsch im Hanser Verlag nachlesen kann. Ein guter Entwickler ist ein Pragmatiker -- er ist nicht interesselos und werkelt bloß seinen Code herunter, sondern er hat das Projekt und seine Realisierung vor Augen. Dazu bringt er ein paar Fähigkeiten mit, die man nicht in einem Informatikstudium oder Handbuch zu Algorithmen nachlesen kann. Er ist interessiert an neuen Technologien, er lernt gern dazu, er probiert neue Dinge aus und er arbeitet sinnvoll organisiert: Er testet seine Software, er verwendet die richtigen Werkzeuge und beherrscht sie, er übt sich darin, sinnvolle Zeitabschätzungen über seine Arbeit und das Projekt zu liefern. Er lässt sich von wilden Marketing-Versprechungen von Produkt X nicht beeindrucken und bildet sich eine eigene Meinung. Um diese Fähigkeiten und wie man sie sich aneignet geht es im Pragmatischen Programmierer -- nicht um eine tolle Architektur X oder ein Projektverfahren Y. Das Handbuch richtet sich explizit an Entwickler -- die zentrale Frage ist die eigene Arbeit und ihre Verbesserung und nicht wie in vielen Handbüchern zu Projektmanagement die Verbesserung der Arbeit anderer. Hunt liefert viele hilfreiche Tipps -- einige sollten zwar selbstverständlich sein und bieten nicht viel mehr als gesunden Menschenverstand und ein gewisses Qualitätsbewusstsein der eigenen Arbeit gegenüber, andere Hinweise sind für unerfahrene Entwickler sicher inspirierend. Der Pragmatische Programmierer ist ein amerikanisches Buch -- wer diesen Ansatz und die Sprache mag, wird ein sehr gutes und hilfreiches Buch mit interessanten Gedanken finden. Es richtet sich an Entwickler, die neue Impulse für ihre Arbeit suchen oder unerfahrene Entwickler, die sich das erste Mal fragen, was eigentlich ein guter Programmierer sein könnte. --Susanne Schmidt
