Here is an increasingly wide agreement among teachers, researchers, inspectors, advisers and policy-makers that both teaching and research will benefit from being brought closer together. But how can this be achieved? Hard-pressed practitioners cannot be expected to review a constant flow of conference papers, journals and other publications, even if such items were accessible and clearly understood. This unique book synthesizes relevant research findings for the professional practitioner and highlights their implications for the quality of teaching and learning. Whether you are a teacher looking to improve your practice through applying the latest thinking in your subject, or a researcher looking for a concise review of the literature, this book will prove to be a valuable acquisition.

Louise T Davies
R2,622 Discovery Miles 26 220 Out of stock

The SEND Code of Practice (2015) reinforced the requirement that all teachers must meet the needs of all learners. This topical book provides practical, tried-and-tested strategies and resources that will support teachers in making design and technology lessons accessible and interesting for all pupils, including those with special educational needs. The author draws on a wealth of experience to share her understanding of special educational needs and disabilities and show how the design and technology teacher can reduce or remove any barriers to learning. Offering strategies that are specific to the context of design and technology teaching, this book will enable teachers to: better identify a student's particular learning requirements; set inclusive design and making assignments which allow all students to participate and succeed; build students' confidence in using a range of materials and tools; assist with design tasks where pupils take ownership of their work and learning; adapt the classroom environment to meet the needs of pupils; create a mutually supportive classroom which maximises learning opportunities. An invaluable tool for continuing professional development, this text will be essential for design and technology teachers (and their teaching assistants) seeking to include and motivate all pupils in their lessons, regardless of their individual needs. This book will also be of interest to secondary SENCOs, senior management teams and ITT providers. In addition to free online resources, a range of appendices provide design and technology teachers with a variety of pro forma and activity sheets to support effective teaching. This is an essential tool for design and technology teachers and teaching assistants, and will help to deliver successful, inclusive lessons for all pupils.

Originally published in 1993. The appearance of design and technology in the National Curriculum has offered primary teachers opportunities for imaginative and stimulating work which is directly related to the lives of their pupils. Its sheer scope can, however, be daunting for the teacher already overloaded with the other demands of the National Curriculum. Tina Jarvis provides some much needed guidance on strategies for including design and technology effectively within the whole curriculum, including the development of co-operative group-work and finding effective ways to assess individuals in group situations. The author also looks at how teachers can tackle subject areas which may be unfamiliar to them, such as systems, environments and economic enterprises.

Change and Development - Issues of Theory, Method, and Application (Paperback): Eric Amsel, K. Ann Renninger, Ann Renninger Change and Development - Issues of Theory, Method, and Application (Paperback)
Eric Amsel, K. Ann Renninger, Ann Renninger
R1,078 Discovery Miles 10 780 Out of stock

This book and the symposium on which it was based were designed to cross the boundaries of subdiscipline and theoretical orientation to address four critical issues in understanding development: explanation of change and development; the nature and process of change; forms of variability in performance; and the promotion of change through application. The chapters suggest that change and development in target systems from cells to selves, may not be explainable, assessable, or promotable without careful reference to the context (social and otherwise) of the system, and that the process of change and development may involve variability of the system in addition to periods of stability. Together the chapters harken back to the spirit of the grand theory. Instead of proposing a grand theory, they provide an excellent foundation for considering the importance of an individual's (or particular group's) context and variability, and discussions to facilitate thinking about what still needs to be worked out.

Design thinking is a method of problem-solving that relies on a complex set of skills, processes and mindsets that help people generate novel solutions to problems. Taking Design Thinking to School: How the Technology of Design Can Transform Teachers, Learners, and Classrooms uses an action-oriented approach to reframing K-12 teaching and learning, examining interventions that open up dialogue about when and where learning, growth, and empowerment can be triggered. While design thinking projects make engineering, design, and technology fluency more tangible and personal for a broad range of young learners, their embrace of ambiguity and failure as growth opportunities often clash with institutional values and structures. Through a series of in-depth case studies that honor and explore such tensions, the authors demonstrate that design thinking provides students with the agency and compassion that is necessary for doing creative and collaborative work, both in and out of the classroom. A vital resource for education researchers, practitioners, and policymakers, Taking Design Thinking to School brings together some of the most innovative work in design pedagogy.

Surface and Apparition - The Immateriality of Modern Surface (Hardcover): Yeseung Lee Surface and Apparition - The Immateriality of Modern Surface (Hardcover)
Yeseung Lee
R2,484 Discovery Miles 24 840 Out of stock

Surface is one of the most intensely debated topics in recent arts, humanities and social science scholarship. The changing technologies which manufacture the actual and virtual surfaces of today are radically altering our perception of thresholds and borders. In contrast to the responses to preceding industrial revolutions, contemporary concerns with surface seem preoccupied with its function of mediation or passage, rather than with that of separation or boundary. In Surface and Apparition, each chapter explores a different meaning and function of the material and immaterial qualities of 'surface'. Case studies include various surfaces from computer screens, 'artisanal' engines and glass architecture to gauzy veils, the planetary surface of supply chain capitalism, and spatial embodiment in street markets. International scholars of design, architecture, film, media, fine art, fashion, textiles, silversmithing, woodworking and archival practices account for how the material and the immaterial draw attention to each other in both their everyday and artistic practice. Each chapter addresses particular systems (from the human body to manually operated tools and machines); materials (for instance cloth, wood and light); modes of attention, movement and engagement. 'Surface' therefore functions in this book as a multidisciplinary method for attending to critical issues concerning human creative and technological endeavours.
