Facebook, Twitter, Google...today's tech-savvy students are always plugged in. However, all too often their teachers and administrators aren't experienced in the use of these familiar digital tools. If schools are to prepare students for the future, administrators and educators must harness the power of digital technologies and social media. With contributions from authorities on the topic of educational technology, What School Leaders Need to Know About Digital Technologies and Social Media is a compendium of the most useful tools for any education setting. Throughout the book, experts including Will Richardson, Vicki Davis, Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach, Richard Byrne, Joyce Valenza, and many others explain how administrators and teachers can best integrate technology into schools, helping to make sense of the often-confusing world of social media and digital tools. They offer the most current information for the educational use of blogs, wikis and podcasts, online learning, open-source courseware, educational gaming, social networking, online mind mapping, mobile phones, and more, and include examples of these methods currently at work in schools. As the book clearly illustrates, when these tools are combined with thoughtful and deliberate pedagogical practice, it can create a transformative experience for students, educators, and administrators alike. What School Leaders Need to Know About Digital Technologies and Social Media reveals the power of information technology and social networks in the classroom and throughout the education community.

Could CRT provide the first structured method of alleviating cognitive deficits associated with schizophrenia? Cognitive Remediation Therapy for Schizophrenia describes the background and development of this new psychological therapy and demonstrates how it provides the first structured help to overcome the thinking problems associated with schizophrenia. In three sections, the book covers the theoretical and empirical underpinning of cognitive remediation therapy and explores its application. Part I, 'The Development of Therapy', provides the historical context and theoretical background to the therapy and emphasizes the value of rehabilitating cognitive deficits. In Part II, 'Improving Cognitive Processes', the process and effects of changing cognition are examined. Finally, in Part III, 'The Process of Therapy', the authors provide a clinical guide to the delivery of cognitive remediation therapy and use case examples to support its efficacy. This book is the first to describe an individual cognitive remediation therapy programme based on a clear model of the relationship between thinking and behaviour. It will be of both academic and clinical value to all those health professionals and clinical academics who want not only to understand the relationships between thought and action but also to intervene to improve therapy.

Cass Jones muss in dieser Welt Morde aufklären: die Taten eines Serienkillers, der sich "der Fliegenmann" nennt; die Tötung zweier Schuljungen, die ins Kreuzfeuer eines Bandenkrieges geraten; den Selbstmord seines eigenen Bruders Christian, der zuvor noch Frau und Kind tötet. Christian war Angestellter der "Bank". Bald muss Cass Jones begreifen, dass alle Morde zusammenhängen - nicht nur miteinander und mit dem Zustand der Welt, sondern vor allem auch mit ihm selbst. Eine verstörende Spurensuche in seiner eigenen Vergangenheit beginnt.

Mind Mapping, was übersetzt soviel wie "Anlegen einer Gedankenkarte" heißt, ist eine ebenso kreative wie effektive Arbeitsmethode, die sich überall dort hervorragend anwenden lässt, wo Übersichtlichkeit, Systematik, Organisationsgeist und Ideenreichtum gefordert sind. Das Buch erklärt Ihnen, auf welchen Grundregeln Mind Mapping basiert, und führt Sie in die praktische Anwendung ein. Es demonstriert, wie vielseitig die Methode im Bereich des Berufslebens einsetzbar ist - gleich, ob es sich beispielsweise um das Planen von Projekten, das Vorbereiten einer Präsentation, das Halten einer Rede oder um spezifische Problemlösungen handelt. Auch zur persönlichen Weiterentwicklung und in der Fortbildung ist Mind Mapping nutzbar. Unter Gehirnforschern gilt deshalb die Methode deshalb als so wirksam, da sie die optimale Zusammenarbeit beider Gehirnhälften stützt, indem sie bildliches und begriffliches Denken miteinander vernetzt. Zu diesem Buch gibt es auch eine CD-ROM, mit der Sie Ihre u.a. Ihr Mind- Maps im PC selbst gestalten können: Mind Mapping - Effektiv planen, sicher organisieren und kreativ Probleme lösen
