As the first country in the world to enact a formal policy of multiculturalism, Canada has made impressive strides toward promoting civic inclusion for all; however, the education system remains less than forthcoming about the injustices that shape our democracy and create conditions that teach young people to see difference as deficiency. Ratna Ghosh and Mariusz Galczynski seek to persuade educators to incorporate the ideology of multiculturalism into their classroom pedagogy and professional practice. In this third edition, Redefining Multicultural Education mobilizes an expanded definition of multiculturalism that encompasses gender identity, sexual orientation, religious expression, and (dis)ability. New features include material on environmental awareness, cyberbullying, multilingual learners, digital technologies, youth radicalization, and recent events in Quebec and First Nations communities. Integrating vignettes, discussion questions, and sample activities with techniques for applying a multicultural lens to any subject area or level of study, this lively and accessible guide is essential for those interested in preparing students for a global economy in which innovation relies, before all else, on diversity.

'Selected contributions are all of high quality and do indeed contribute to the editors goal; synthesis combined with new horizons, cross-disciplinary approaches combine with state of the art description. This makes the Handbook of New Media de facto required reading for anybody involved in new media and its understanding.... The aim of this book was ambitious and the size of the book is impressive but the result is there, a handbook of new media, which will remain a key referance in new media research for some considerable time' - Learning Media Technology `A landmark volume that provides a foundation stone for a new subject - the study of new media. It is stunningly well-edited, offering a very high standard of original contributions in a skilfully orchestrated and organised textbook' - James Curran, Goldsmiths College, University of London `This is the first major review of interactive technologies and their cultural and social context. This is more than a welcome addition to one's library; it is the authoritative overview of international research perspectives on interactive media technologies by leading scholars around the world' - Ellen Wartella, University of Texas, Austin `The Handbook of New Media is a landmark for the study of information and communication technologies within the field of communication. Its international team of editors and authors has brought together insights gained from over two decades of scholarly research. This indispensable reference demonstrates an increased maturity and stature for "new media" research within the field' - William H Dutton, University of Southern California `A truly comprehensive and authoritative volume. This Handbook will be an absolutely essential text for anyone concerned with social aspects of the new media' - Kevin Robins, Goldsmiths College, University of London The past 20 years have seen remarkable growth in research and scholarship addressing new information and communication technologies and their social contexts. Often called `new media' research, this growing field is both international and interdisciplinary. The Handbook of New Media sets out boundaries of new media research and scholarship and provides a definitive statement of the current state-of-the-art of the field. Divided into six sections covering major problem areas of research, the Handbook includes an introductory essay by the editors and a concluding essay by Ron Rice. Each chapter, written by an internationally renowned scholar, provides a review of the most significant social research findings and insights. This Handbook will be an indispensable volume on the personal bookshelves of all scholars working in the area, required reading for graduate students, a reference work for established researchers and newcomers to new media scholarship, and an intellectual benchmark for the field.

This volume brings together conceptualizations and empirical studies that explore the socio-cultural dimension of new media and its implications on learning in the 21st century classroom. The authors articulate their vision of new-media-enhanced learning at a global level. The high-level concept is then re-examined for different degrees of contextualization and localization, for example how a specific form of new media (e-reader) changes specific activities in different cultures. In addition, studies based in Singapore classrooms provide insights as to how these concepts are being transformed and implemented by a co-constructive effort on the part of researchers, teachers and students. Singapore classrooms offer a unique environment to study the theory-practice nexus in that they are high achieving, implicitly grounded in the eastern cultural values and well-equipped with ICT infrastructure. While these studies are arguably the state-of-the-art exemplars that synergize socio-cultural and technological affordances of the current learning environments, they also serve as improvable ideas for further innovations. The interplay between theory and practice lends support to the reciprocal improvements for both. This book contributes to the continuing debate in the field, and will lead to better learning environments in the 21st century.

As editors of Books, Media, and the Internet, David Booth, Carol Jupiter, and Shelley S. Peterson present the work of colleagues from the conference “A Place for Children’s Literature in the New Literacies Classrooms,’ April 2008. Within these pages, teachers, librarians, and others concerned with literacy will find inspiration and strategies for melding technology and children’s literature from practitioners who have found effective ways to engage young people with text, both in print and on screen. The contributors to this anthology include classroom teachers, librarians, university educators, and journalists. They speak not only to the technologically capable and media-savvy teachers but also to the curious, who seek starting points for using new technologies alongside traditional print media in their classrooms. They show how multimedia and digital technologies expand our approaches to literacy education -- and how to extend and enrich our use of stories, whatever the media, with all ages. Their articles cover a vast range of subjects arranged into 5 sections. This book provides current information, classroom examples, and anecdotes as practical tools to help teachers use digital, media, and print texts to extend students’ learning. The helpful “Teaching Tools” section at the end of the book explains how to use a variety of digital tools in the classroom.

The National Society for the Study of Education is an organization of education scholars, professional educators, and policymakers dedicated to the improvement of education research, policy, and practice. Founded in 1901 by a small group of distinguished educators including John Dewey, Nicholas Murray Butler, and Charles Hubbard Judd, NSSE is the oldest national educational research organization in the United States. The mission of the National Society for the Study of Education is to investigate enduring and contemporary problems, disseminate the findings of its investigations, and engage members of the education community in study and discourse around those findings for the improvements of research, policy, and practice. One important way the Society accomplishes this mission is through the publications of its two–volume yearbooks, now in their 104th year. Each volume of a yearbook deals with a separate topic of current concern to educators. With knowledgeable scholars and practitioners as contributing authors, the yearbooks are reliable and authoritative sources of information on timely educational topics. Some yearbooks have become landmark publications in the field with which they deal. As the Society moved into its second century, it acknowledges its indebtedness to the numerous authors and editors whose work has made the yearbooks significant contributions to the study of education during the past century. NSSE looks ahead to fostering stronger relationships between researchers, educators, and policymakers, with the goal of improving education for the nation′s childrens and youth, through continued collaborative study of educational problems. Membership in the Society is open to all individuals who desire to receive the Yearbooks regularly. Members include teachers, administrators, researchers, other educational personnel, and policymakers at all levels of education in the United States, Canada, and overseas.

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject Art - Computer Art / Graphics / Art in Media, grade: 8, Maastricht University, language: English, abstract: The new opportunities humanity gets while society develops and technology grows are seemingly non-terminating. Obviously, many people like to benefit from the arising advantages and the positive side-effects. The World Wide Web is one of these technologies, that on the one hand remarkably facilitate our life and on the other hand lead to a more complex and intertwined system and to changes that can not be reversed. In times of rapid growing technological progress civilization struggles with the issue of striking new paths to the future while at the same time fostering the own cultural heritage. For some people arts and culture are necessary, because they belong to their roots and are signs of their history, but opinions and notions about that theme vary widely. Still there are hotly debated problems relating to cultural policy – Heilbrun & Gray (2011) argue that arts and culture are caught in a materialistic world (p. 3) which is the reason why they always have to deal with a mighty term called ‘money’. But when thinking about culture and heritage, it is not just about keeping the past in mind and preserving ancient monuments. It is also about actively promoting the arts and culture, that currently come into existence. Technologies arise and so do arts. How to cope now with balancing between past and future, heritage and progress, art and high-tech? Bringing something forward means spending time on it, participating in it and therefore reinforcing it. A modern world needs people who get involved and that is why participation may be one of the pivotal things needed for generating a successful future. By taking a look at the current situation, I want to examine the special relationship between the use of the internet and participation in arts and culture. What do we understand by thinking of the term ‘cultural participation’ and for which reasons is it so important to participate? Which tool does the internet provide to influence and increase cultural participation and which examples can be made for that? After a general overview, the demand position will be adapted on the concrete example of the Netherlands. The results may create the basis for developing future scenarios and investigating questions like whether the web's popularity is able to create more popularity for cultural participation or if just the internet's degree of esteem will grow further without any impacts on culture.

In the Teacher's Guide, Sean Redmond discusses exactly what is meant by the phrase "new media" and examines their impact. He goes on to explore their effects on such "old media" as film, TV and music; then examines some of the most significant "new media", using the Internet, game-playing and surveillance cameras as primary case studies. The accompanying Resources draw upon many of the examples featured in the Guide, providing the teacher with a useful 'classroom ready' scheme of work.

Middle Childhood Development: A Contextual Approach is a new and integrative resource for practitioners who work with children ages 6 through 12. With a focus on the historical and cultural context of middle childhood and on developmental pathways, this text explores the ways in which middle childhood is considered both a stage of development and a transitional period. An Emphasis on Application Current research is translated into practical applications for educators, parents, and other professionals. See the feature "Guideposts for Working with School-age Children;" for examples, see pages 90, 173 and 332. In addition, "Stop and Reflect" questions embedded in the text also allow readers to integrate and apply chapter content to their own lives; for examples, see pages 108, 166 and 328. An Integrated Discussion of Research and Theories Based on recent research findings, the authors provide suggestions on what to expect and how to interact with children in middle childhood. Rather than one abstract introductory chapter, psychological theories of development are applied throughout the text to address particular chapter content in integrated sections called "Theoretical Viewpoints;" for examples, see pages 78, 158, and 304. Each chapter also has a cumulative table of the theories presented in that chapter. Each chapter includes key research on the ecologies of family, school, and community highlighted in separate sections called "Development in Context;" for examples, see pages 112, 184 and 334. In each chapter, pedagogical boxes called "Roadmap to Understanding Theory and Research" and "Roadmap to Successful Practice" are included that alert students to key illustrations of chapter content; for examples, see pages 97, 182, and 333.

The legendary Greek figure Orpheus was said to have possessed magical powers capable of moving all living and inanimate things through the sound of his lyre and voice. Over time, the Orphic theme has come to indicate the power of music to unsettle, subvert, and ultimately bring down oppressive realities in order to liberate the soul and expand human life without limits. The liberating effect of music has been a particularly important theme in twentieth-century African American literature. The nine original essays in Black Orpheus examines the Orphic theme in the fiction of such African American writers as Jean Toomer, Langston Hughes, Claude McKay, James Baldwin, Nathaniel Mackey, Sherley Anne Williams, Ann Petry, Ntozake Shange, Alice Walker, Gayl Jones, and Toni Morrison. The authors discussed in this volume depict music as a mystical, shamanistic, and spiritual power that can miraculously transform the realities of the soul and of the world. Here, the musician uses his or her music as a weapon to shield and protect his or her spirituality. Written by scholars of English, music, women's studies, American studies, cultural theory, and black and Africana studies, the essays in this interdisciplinary collection ultimately explore the thematic, linguistic structural presence of music in twentieth-century African American fiction.
