The New Learning Revolution - How Britain Can Lead the World in Learning, Education and Schooling (Paperback, Revised Edition):... The New Learning Revolution - How Britain Can Lead the World in Learning, Education and Schooling (Paperback, Revised Edition)
Gordon Dryden, Jeannette Voss
R245 R232 Discovery Miles 2 320 Save R13 (5%) Ships in 5 - 10 working days

This is the definitive book about the biggest changes in education, schooling and teaching since the school classroom was invented almost 300 years ago. The vision and power of the original "Learning Revolution" remains, but the authors now address current developments such as: how instant information and interactive technology are finally forcing a complete rethink of everything we've ever believed about education; how new interlocking networks are creating dramatic new models for learning; and how new teaching methods are revolutionizing schooling in pockets around the world. Dryden, the award-winning television and radio talk show host, is just completing a series of television programmes on new methods of learning and Vos is putting the finishing touches to a seven-year doctoral research project into the same subject. The combined power of these two dynamic authors is highly compelling!

  • Beginning knowledge (the teaching of natural sciences, technology and social sciences)
  • Creative arts education (the teaching of visual and performing arts)
  • Physical education (movement)
  • Personal and social well-being (addressing social issues such as sexuality education, health education, violence and abuse)

R410 R361 Discovery Miles 3 610 Save R49 (12%) Ships in 4 - 8 working days

The intermediate phase is a critically important period in schooling, when most learners make the transition from learning in their home language to using English as the language of learning and teaching. Learners and teachers find it a daunting time. There are language and literacy challenges in learning English as a subject, in addition to the linguistic complexities of classrooms in urban areas. Recent research has indicated that many intermediate phase learners are also still not fluent readers. Teaching English: As A First Additional Language In The Intermediate And Senior Phase will support teachers in overcoming these classroom challenges.

The book starts by exploring who the Intermediate and Senior Phase learner is – physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively – and then focuses on the skills of reading and viewing, writing, and speaking and listening.

In addition, the text:

  • explains the supporting role the home language can play in learning an additional language
  • provides strategies for integrating language skills in a second-language classroom
  • includes examples of how language teaching can be extended across all curriculum subjects
  • explores ways in which assessment can be used to support students’ learning
  • focuses on the use of information and communication technologies in the language classroom

Teaching English: As A First Additional Language In The Intermediate And Senior Phase is suitable for preservice teachers completing a BEd or a PGCE. In-service teachers will also find it useful.

It is nearly two decades since public schools in South Africa began to admit learners from all cultural and racial backgrounds, and this diversity has resulted in a need for schools to evolve with the changing circumstances as well as to maintain excellence. Teachers are faced daily with the challenge of teaching and managing learners of unfamiliar cultures, languages and backgrounds. Multicultural education introduces various models of multicultural education and provides practical, low-cost classroom strategies which teachers can implement effectively in culturally diverse schools.

Multicultural education explores concepts of diversity in society from various theoretical perspectives and discusses the implications of differences and similarities among South African learners. Practical activities at the end of each chapter allow teachers to reflect critically on their own practice, and assist educational leaders to carry out professional development in multicultural education in their schools.

Contents include the following:

  • South African policy and legislation relevant to diversity issues
  • Cross-cultural communication
  • Teaching in the linguistically diverse classroom
  • Multicultural approaches to curriculum and learning material
  • Positive discipline in the culturally diverse classroom
Multicultural education is aimed at teachers, members of school management teams, school governing bodies and interested parents.

A teacher's role is fundamental in the acquisition of the much needed mathematical skills and knowledge that form part of children's early development and beyond. From the year before learners enter formal schooling (Grade R) to the end of the Foundation Phase (Grade 3), teachers contribute to the most important learning cycle and lay the groundwork for learners for the rest of their schooling years. Teaching Foundation Phase Mathematics provides crucial insights into basic principles that are applied both globally and locally with an in-depth discussion of the concepts and theories that underlie the teaching of mathematics to learners at a young age. Carefully considering the CAPS documents issued by the Department of Basic Education in 2012, themes revolve around the physical, social and conceptual knowledge that learners need to acquire and build on in mathematics in order to fully comprehend and develop their skills for the future. Contents include the following: Basic principles of acquiring mathematical skills and knowledge; Diversity and mathematics in the classroom; Teaching and learning mathematics in Grade R; Development of number concepts; Patterns, functions and algebra at an early stage; Teaching and learning about space and shape; Teaching and learning about measurement; Handling data at an early stage; Assessing mathematics in the child-centred classroom. Teaching Foundation Phase Mathematics is the essential guide for beginner teachers and students to prepare their classrooms, plan lessons to support the acquisition of mathematical skills and knowledge, and teach mathematics with confidence. The book will also help parents understand what their children are required to learn in the mathematics classroom. A resource kit is added on CD-ROM to supply teachers with valuable resource materials and each chapter also contains a special section on the use of technology in the classroom.

Everyone has the right to education. The main objective of any education system in a democratic society is to provide quality education for all learners so that they will be able to reach their full potential and contribute meaningfully to and participate in that society throughout their lives. With the publication of the Education White Paper 6 in 2001, South Africa proclaimed its policy of inclusive education; however, this policy is not always clearly understood by educators. Addressing barriers to learning provides relevant and in-depth knowledge to prepare educators better to teach all the learners in their class groups. Addressing barriers to learning covers the complete continuum of barriers to learning as reflected in the Education White Paper 6, including the most vulnerable of them: those who are economically and educationally disadvantaged; those with physical, sensory, intellectual, and/or learning impairment; and those displaying challenging behaviour who are at risk of exclusion. Case studies offer practical examples and activities provide opportunities for hands-on experience with classroom practice and management, collaboration with all role players and mobilisation of community involvement, which is at the heart of true inclusion. Addressing barriers to learning is aimed at both prospective and current educators and other support professionals, including psychologists and therapists. The three editors, Emmerentia Landsberg, Deirdre Kruger and Estelle Swart, are acknowledged and experienced academics and practitioners in the field of inclusive education and accommodating diversity in inclusive classrooms.

It is not unusual for even seasoned educators to express some bewilderment about teaching in today's fast-paced, technological, outcome-oriented environment. The overwhelming quantity of media messages bombarding learners has led them to develop a significant level of scepticism towards any information that they receive, and the old methods of teaching no longer seem to be effective. An educator's guide to effective classroom management provides clear and concise discussions of classroom management aspects within a present-day South African context to give educators an opportunity to question and enhance their approach to teaching and reduce the bureaucracy of their classrooms. An educator's guide to effective classroom management provides valuable knowledge, practical ideas and advice on the development of a personal classroom management plan to suit individual styles of teaching and thus promote successful learning. It is student centred and interactive, including practical activities and mind maps for clarity as well as opportunities for self-assessment. Contents include the following: The millennial learner; Self-management for the educator; Classroom management tasks; Planning in the classroom; Leadership in the classroom; Laws and constitutional provisions regulating classroom management and administration, learner discipline and safety. An educator's guide to effective classroom management is aimed at pre-service education students as well as already practising educators who wish to improve their classroom practice.
