Abstract

This book reports on a novel and comprehensive approach to the uptake of ICT in Schools. It focuses on key questions, pedagogically sound ways of introducing ICT, new technical artifacts supporting the approach, the evaluation in a large-scale validator, and future work. While many innovations in Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) have emerged over the last two decades, the uptake of these innovations has not always been very successful, particularly in schools. The transition from proof of concept to integration into learning activities has been recognized as a bottleneck for quite some time. This major problem, which is affecting many TEL stakeholders, is the focus of this book which focuses on developing a more effective and efficient approach based on more than 2500 pilots in European classrooms.Teachers, head teachers, and policy makers may benefit from reading how novel learning scenarios can be elaborated, adapted to a local context, and implemented in the classroom; how new technologies can support this process for teachers and their national/regional communities; how teachers and other stakeholders can be educated in such a re-engineering process; how the approach can be scaled up through MOOCs, ambassador schemes, and train-the-trainer programs; how future classroom labs can inspire teachers, head teachers, and policy makers; how teachers and, above all, learners can become more engaged in learning through the adoption of the iTEC approach.Readers with a more technical focus may also be interested in the discussion of recommender systems, the flexible provision of resources and services, the deployment of the cloud in schools, and systems for composing technological support for lesson plans.

Abstract

‘How can you make decisions about Aboriginal people when you can’t even talk to the people you’ve got here that are blackfellas?’ So ‘Sarah’, a senior Aboriginal public servant, imagines a conversation with the Northern Territory Public Service. Her question suggests tensions for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders who have accepted the long-standing invitation to join the ranks of the public service. Reluctant Representatives gives us a rare glimpse into the working world of the individuals behind the Indigenous public sector employment statistics. This empathetic exposé of the challenges of representative bureaucracy draws on interviews with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians who have tried making it work. Through Ganter’s engaging narration, we learn that the mere presence of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in the public service is not enough. If bureaucracies are to represent the communities they serve, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander public servants need to be heard and need to know their people are heard.

Abstract

« J'ai connu la tentation du cliché », avoue le philosophe Alain Badiou en entrevue. Nous voilà rassurés : même les plus grands risquent de tomber dans les poncifs ou, comme l'expliquait Platon, dans une vision cynique et pauvre du monde. Ce livre pose le problème de l'obscurantisme lié à l'absence d'accès aux connaissances. Le lecteur est donc convié à une aventure de vérification. Des spécialistes internationaux de plusieurs domaines (santé publique, anthropologie, sociologie, histoire, éc...

Abstract

To become a competent social worker it is essential to know the perspective of the service users. Therefore, service users are more and more included in field research projects and the instruction of social workers to-be. However, they are usually reduced to the role of informants and not actively taking part as co-partners. For the first time, this anthology gives an overview of courses in which service users and students share their experiences and work together on the same level using gapmending methods. The applications and evaluations of these courses in different European countries are discussed in this volume.

Abstract

This study deals with the provision of software and develops an approach to the analysis and design of software deployment contexts in which software is provided centrally for many. The provision of the web-based cooperation platform CommSy in two different constellations exemplifies the necessity of such a software supply approach for understanding and designing software supply contexts. The present work provides the foundation for the business model Application Service Providing and its extension to the software provisioning approach eASP (evolutionary Application Service Providing). The business model can thus be used for IT. Through eASP, the effects and services of software provision can be taken into account in the evolutionary and participatory software development and IT-supported organization design. eASP is not understood as a model of software provision, but as a pattern that helps to understand and design a concrete software provision.

Abstract

Tous les chercheurs dont les travaux font appel à des sujets humains doivent désormais soumettre leurs projets à des comités d'éthique qui en font l'évaluation et sont chargés d'en suivre l'évolution. Cet ouvrage s'adresse avant tout à ces chercheurs en leur présentant les principales règles auxquelles ils doivent se soumettre, en leur indiquant les éléments dont il faut tenir compte dans la rédaction d'un protocole de recherche et en les sensibilisant aux raisons de ces exigences. Après avoir passé en revue les grands documents éthiques publiés depuis le Code de Nuremberg (1947) jusqu'aux plus récents textes régulateurs canadiens et internationaux, l'auteur traite de certains champs de recherche (épidémiologie, génétique, recherche clinique interventionniste) qui posent des questions éthiques particulières.

Abstract

Au Québec, la participation des usagers et des citoyens à la gestion publique constitue une composante essentielle de l’État et des formes de gouvernance qui caractérisent son action. Il faut remonter aux années 1960 et à la« Révolutiontranquille »pour en saisir toute la signification par rapport à la modernisation de l’État. Toutefois, au cours des dernières années, les choses ont changé. Le« modèlequébécois »des années 1970, ayant pour base la construction de l’État providence, n’a plus rien à voir avec celui des années 1990, soutenu par les valeurs néo-libérales et pratiquant le désengagement public. L’un des objectifs de cet ouvrage est de retracer l’évolution des formes institutionnelles de la participation des usagers/citoyens dans les secteurs de la santé et de l’éducation au Québec. Finalement, en mettant en lumière les nombreux registres à partir desquels les usagers et citoyens contribuent à l’amélioration des services en éducation et en santé, ce livre démontre sans contredit que l’avenir des systèmes de santé et d’éducation dépend d’une manière grandissante du rôle des principaux acteurs concernés.

Abstract

After World War II, tracing and documenting Nazi victims emerged against the background of millions of missing persons and early compensation proceedings. This was a process in which the Allies, international aid organizations, and survivors themselves took part. New archives, documentation centers and tracing bureaus were founded amid the increasing Cold War divide. They gathered documents on Nazi persecution and structured them in specialized collections to provide information on individual fates and their grave repercussions: the loss of relatives, the search for a new home, physical or mental injuries, existential problems, social support and recognition, but also continued exclusion or discrimination. By doing so, institutions involved in this work were inevitably confronted with contentious issues—such as varying political mandates, neutrality vs. solidarity with those formerly persecuted, data protection vs. public interest, and many more. Over time, tracing bureaus and archives changed methods and policies and even expanded their activities, using historical documents for both research and public remembrance. This is the first publication to explore this multifaceted history of tracing and documenting past and present.
