In the UK some 11.5m people already live with a recognised disability and more than a fifth of them experience some difficulty when using transport networks. So it's essential that the Department for Transport delivers an ambitious Accessibility Action Plan. Changes made ahead of the 2012 Paralympic Games delivered access for disabled people to significantly more parts of the public transport network for the first time and highlighted the immense value of such improvements for all. Yet a year later, there is a risk that some of the momentum from London 2012 is being lost because further key accessibility improvements planned have been watered-down or abandoned. The Committee's recommendations include: imposing penalties on bus operators who claim to offer accessible routes but then fail to provide accessible buses; the phased introduction of audio-visual information systems on all buses over the next ten years; phasing out the need for disabled travellers having to book organised assistance in advance; financial incentives to encourage investment in fully accessible vehicles by taxi and private care hire vehicle operators; and a change to EU rules so that in future airlines are required to allow carers to travel free of charge when the airline judges a disabled person incapable of travelling independently. The Cabinet Office should convene a working group of ministers and officials to improve cross-government working on accessibility in order to secure the full benefits to be gained from widening disabled people's access to employment and training, healthcare and wider participation in all parts of society

It has been known for quite some time that ICT can directly improve corporate performance if it is employed in an appropriate way. There are many stories of how organisations have been transformed by the use of this technology. However it is also known that it is not a simple task to employ ICT effectively. Many organisations have spent considerable sums of money and had only very modest returns. This book addresses the issues of how to deliver significant improvements in corporate performance through the use of ICT and it offers different models which can be of assistance to organisational leaders in this respect. These models are brought to life by analysing a series of real life case studies encompassing both successes and failures in the adoption of ICT, from which deep insights on how to apply this technology for competitive advantage are extracted. The book is suitable for both ICT professionals and for members of senior management including CEOs. It has been written in an accessible way so that it will also be of value to academics who offer courses in ICT strategy and implementation. It will expose their students to the dilemmas of management decisions concerning the different uses of ICT and its role in value creation. 260 Pages

Putting forth his theory of Reality Pedagogy, Emdin provides practical tools to unleash the brilliance and eagerness of youth and educators alike--both of whom have been typecast and stymied by outdated modes of thinking about urban education. With this fresh and engaging new pedagogical vision, Emdin demonstrates the importance of creating a family structure and building communities within the classroom, using culturally relevant strategies like hip-hop music and call-and-response, and connecting the experiences of urban youth to indigenous populations globally"--

This one-of-a-kind resource will be invaluable to every teacher educator, every curriculum director, and every literacy coach, whether or not they must meet Common Core Standards. Bringing together perspectives from literacy luminaries, each addressing their specialty, this book offers an accessible fund of rich practices in literacy instruction. The book serves two purposes: First, it assembles a body of knowledge and wisdom from leading literacy researchers who each draw from a long career in the field to address topics of central importance to good literacy instruction. Second, these research-to-practice leaders connect established best practices and foundational research to the current challenge of instruction to meet Common Core Standards and other rigorous curriculum guidelines. The contributors point out strengths of the Common Core as well as issues and oversights that educators should be aware of. Closing chapters situate the Common Core within a continuum of educational policy and legislation. Contributors: Richard L. Allington, Monica T. Billen, Jay S. Blanchard, Robert Calfee, Gina N. Cervetti, Michael F. Graves, John T. Guthrie, Elfrieda H. Hiebert, James V. Hoffman, Rosalind Horowitz, Michael L.

Williams, Kathleen Wilson “Pearson and Hiebert have long advocated for children in schools, and this volume is no exception. They and their chapter authors situate the CCSS within the historical and policy context in which it was written and support the literacy education community as we wrestle with the implications the standards have for research, for teachers, for teaching, and for learning.” —Sharon Walpole, University of Delaware “This book gets way beyond generalities and polemics about the Common Core, taking a deep and measured dive into a wide range of essential topics within the standards. I read a lot, and I can't think of the last time I read anything about the CCSS as engaging and thought provoking as this.” —Nell K. Duke, University of Michigan
