The internet has dramatically transformed social space and time for many people in many different contexts. This dramatic warping of the social fabric has happened slowly over time as digital technologies have evolved and internet speeds have increased. While we are all aware of these changes, the impact is often little understood. There are few monographs about social groups made possible by the internet, and even fewer about educational communities made possible through digital technologies. Inside Mathforum.org details the ways that digital media are used to enhance the practices that teachers and students of mathematics engage in. The book also shows how different kinds of mathematical conversations and interactions become possible through the digital media. Unlike many other educational uses of digital media, the Math Forum's community has provided online resources and sustained support for teachers and students, and it leads the way in showing the power of digital media for education.

This volume wholeheartedly engages with the current climate in higher education and provides not only a thorough analysis of the foundational elements constituting higher education but also a critical discussion of possible connections to societal and cultural domains and policy debates. Today, higher education institutions and programs are beset with multiple, and often conflicting, pressures and demands. Higher education is regarded by societies in general, and at the political level in particular, as a pathway to securing continued economic growth and ensuring cultural growth in surrounding societal contexts. Future academics are expected to become experts within their disciplines and at the same time to acquire and develop generic competences and transferable skills directly translatable into job market and professional contexts. These conflicting and fragmented policy approaches to higher education leaves academic leaders, teacher, researchers, and students with an incoherent curriculum and a confused and eroded academic identity and societal outlook. Much literature within higher education research engages with similar topics are dominated by a backwards-looking and heavy critique of current political and educational conditions for the university and higher education. This volume suggests a new tack that is defined by openness and optimism towards possibilities for a transformative higher education curriculum - that at the same time stays firmly rooted within the foundational academic soil. By drawing on, and contributing to, the emerging research field the philosophy of higher education, the book combines critique with a constructive and future-oriented approach and outlook on higher education. Further, it combines and links philosophical discussions on the idea of the future university with societal responsibility and a curricular and formational awareness.

"The Fourth Edition Builds on Past Strengths and Adds New Ones... " Student Centered. Culturally Diverse Students. Evidence-Based Standards. Written by renowned authors Donna Alvermann and Steven Phelps, the Fourth Edition includes more emphasis and information on addressing the literacy needs of English language learners and culturally diverse students, a new focus on evidence-based practices and standards, and key information on newer frameworks for reading and writing instruction, such as the sociocultural New Literacies Framework, that equips students to teach content area literacy from a student-centered approach. What Continues to Make This Book a Best Seller... Increased discussion of English language learners. New evidence-based research icons highlighting current research New standards icons from various subject areas help pre-service teachers make the connection on how content area literacy instruction helps them meet the standards in their disciplines. New writing icons throughout the chapters point to writing examples. Thoroughly revised Chapter 7, " Reading to Learn." New information for all of the content areas in every chapter is represented in the examples, lessons, vignettes, and scenarios, making it easier for students enrolled from different discipline areas to locate content-specific/relevant examples. Ringing Endorsements for "Content Area Reading and Literacy, Fourth Edition" " Chapter 14-- " Teaching for Diversity." "This is an excellent chapter that certification students and other graduate students can use to understand more about thetypes of diversity categories that are present in instructional settings. This textbook is excellent for students." " Lavernia F. Hutchison, University of Houston-- Central Campus "" There are many strengths in this text. I particularly like the way it is laid out. I believe that helping the students to see the importance of content literacy from the very beginning is extremely important. Immediately following this topic the students then move directly into diversity, which includes the understanding the meaning of language and culture. Both of these topics form the basis for the rest of the course. Overall, I believe that this book is an excellent text for teaching in the Content Area." " Randy M. Wood, Baylor University "" The strengths of this text include the authors in depth knowledge of the field of content area reading. Their chapter on assessing textbooks is invaluable for secondary teachers who don't understand the difficulty of some textbooks and the problems these texts can cause students. The chapter on multiculturalism and the ESL learner is a strength. The chapter on vocabulary is outstanding." " Patricia J.

Virtual reference-today's fastest-expanding library service-raises many complex policy and implementation questions. Unfortunately, this service is in an early stage and experiences are limited. This groundbreaking volume combines the most current thinking and theory from experts and relates it to real-world virtual reference projects, studies, and findings from libraries across the nation. The editors have arranged the contributions into four distinct parts-Patrons of Digital Reference Services, Digital Reference Librarians, Digital Reference Services and Policies, and The Broader Context of Digital Reference-to highlight the users, staff, services, as well as societal, legal, and political environments within which digital reference services exist. The 13 chapters are based on presentations at the Virtual Reference Desk Conference, the nation's premier event for digital reference practitioners, that have been developed, updated, and refined for inclusion here. They cover design, operation, and marketing of services; user perceptions; training; personal interaction; policies; best practices and guidelines; user surveillance and privacy; and much more. Reference librarians, administrators, and information professionals will find these innovative ideas and practical experiences from the cutting-edge of virtual reference invaluable.
