As the Internet has become a common household utility, more and more students are coming to school with Internet experience. How do students' and teachers' roles, and schools as institutions, change when these Internet-Age kids enter classrooms that are fully equipped with networked computers? This book offers a unique analysis of the issues and challenges teachers face as their classrooms become fully connected to the Internet. Anne Hird spent six months observing a class in a school with fully connected classrooms. She presents a vivid and insightful account-often reported through the students' own words--of how young teens use computers in and out of school; how they perceive the world shaped by the Internet; and how these factors shape their expectations for classroom learning. She observes and reflects on the paradox which confronts teachers in this environment. They are expected to guide students in learning with a cognitive tool that was not part of the teachers' experience as students, while students' familiarity with the Internet calls into question the authority of the teacher on which the traditional teacher-student relationship is based. She offers a strategy for professional development which recognizes and builds on this inevitable shift in the teacher-student relationship. This is an absorbing, thought-provoking and practical book for all educators--individual teachers and administrators alike-concerned about the integration of computer technology into elementary and secondary school classrooms.

Der Gegenentwurf zum unproduktiven Unternehmensalltag Wenn ein Unternehmen erfolgreich sein will, benötigt es angeblich hoch bezahlte Direktoren, lange Meetings, ein großes Werbebudget, Fünfjahrespläne und vor allem ständiges Wachstum. So weit die Theorie. In der Praxis kommen die Software-Unternehmer Jason Fried und David Heinemeier Hansson schon seit 10 Jahren ohne all das aus – und haben Erfolg. Die Autoren repräsentieren eine zukunftsweisende Geschäftskultur, die dabei ist, die alten Konzern-Dinosaurier das Fürchten zu lehren. Smart sind die neuen Unternehmer, beweglich, unprätentiös und technisch auf der Höhe. Arbeit ist für sie kein Selbstzweck, und Lebensqualität gehört ebenso zum Business wie die unvermeidliche menschliche Unzulänglichkeit. Nüchtern und wirksam setzt sich „Rework“ von hochtrabenden Begriffen wie „Reform“ oder „Revolution“ ab. Entstanden ist eine ketzerische „Business-Bibel“, die keine Management-Phrasen herbetet, sondern Mut macht zu echter Eigenständigkeit. Zu Recht schrieb ein Rezensent: „Sie können dieses Buch ignorieren, aber auf eigene Gefahr“.
