Approaches to Developing Accessible Learning Experiences : Conceptualising Best Practice
UK Routledge
2006 0415411491 / 9780415411493 First Edition Hardcover New 1.9 x 18.4 x 24.8 cm 
160 Pages. NEW. For the past five to ten years researchers have been developing tools and guidelines for developing accessible e-learning experiences for students with disabilities. Despite this, very few practitioners in higher education are confident that they know how to develop accessible e-learning experiences. This is prompting researchers to work with practitioners in order to develop meaningful approaches to addressing accessibility; ones that facilitate the development of a clear conceptualisation of why and how practice can be changed to meet the varied needs of students. This book describes these approaches and explores the extent to which they might challenge current thinking and understanding. Topics covered include: approaches to developing accessible multimedia and learning objects holistic approaches to developing accessible e-learning and blended learning experiences institutional and programme approaches to addressing accessibility issues. Exploration and discussion of these topics will challenge practitioners to reconceptualise their understanding of ?best practice? in relation to accessibility and e-learning and offer directions for future practice and development.

At Home with Computers (Materializing Culture), Lally, Elaine
6 Lally, Elaine
At Home with Computers (Materializing Culture)
UK Bloomsbury Publishing PLC
2002 1859735568 / 9781859735565 First Edition Hardcover New 15.6 x 1.6 x 23.4 cm 
Available Now. Book Description: New technologies are profoundly reshaping the world around us. Home computers - unheard of two decades ago - now play an intimate role as personal possessions in many people's lives. For some, computer games may be vital to winding-down after a busy day, while for others the home computer represents only work or is a means through which to socialize in cyberspace. Powerfully symbolic of both future and present trends, computers are increasingly seen as essential home purchases. This book is the first sustained examination of the revealing role computers play in our domestic lives. Do computers cause or help to resolve arguments? What role does gender play in negotiating their use? Who spends the most time with the computer? How does the importance of home computers change as we move from childhood through careers to retirement? Drawing upon topical theories from material culture, technology and consumption studies, Lally traces the social life of these machines and provides unique insights into the many different ways in which they are transformed into highly personal possessions. The result is an absorbing account of everyday life in the information age. This book will be of interest to anthropologists, geographers, sociologists and anyone who wants to get to know how their home computer affects their family life. : Review: 'This is an important book for those who are trying to make sense of the ways in which technology shapes and is shaped by the social and cultural context. It is also an important book for researchers and students ... The book sets a base for the study of technologies that are being designed for the home.'Media International : About the Author: Elaine Lally is Assistant Director at the Institute for Cultural Research, University of Western Sydney Size: 15.6 x 1.6 x 23.4 cm. 258 pages.

Would you find yourself in Los Angeles wrangling snakes, or would you go to China to be licked by a performance artist? : If your name is Dave Gorman, then all of these things could be true.: Fuelled by a lust for life and a desperate desire to do anything except what he's supposed to be doing (writing that novel and growing up), Dave falls under the spell of an obscure internet word game - Googlewhacking.

1997 1859724183 / 9781859724187 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Condition 23cm 
Available Now. Book Description: Developments in information technology and telecommunications are giving new meaning to the concepts of space and time. In particular the concepts of "local" and "global" are starting to merge together even though they apparently represent entirely different scales. One example is "telework", also known as "telecommuting". Another is the rapid growth of outsourcing. These developments are based on new technologies such as multimedia, rapid improvements in storage technologies, and the information superhighway, including the Internet. The structure of the world's telecommunications industry is changing and, in addition, political and social autonomy is breaking down. The role of the nation state is challenged, as are the old avenues and levers of political power. Nation states have attempted to grab functional control over the emerging infrastructure, but they are ultimately unable to exert control over the flood of information surging around the world. There still remains a strong middle ground between local and global, dominated by multinational corporaions and governments. Size: 23cm. 372 pages. Multiple copies available this title.

Available Now. Book Description: mental improvements during the same period. What is clearly needed in verification techniques and technology is the equivalent of a synthesis productivity breakthrough. In the second edition of Writing Testbenches, Bergeron raises the verification level of abstraction by introducing coverage-driven constrained-random transaction-level self-checking testbenches­ all made possible through the introduction of hardware verification languages (HVLs), such as e from Verisity and OpenVera from Synopsys. The state-of-art methodologies described in Writing Test­ benches will contribute greatly to the much-needed equivalent of a synthesis breakthrough in verification productivity. I not only highly recommend this book, but also I think it should be required reading by anyone involved in design and verification of today's ASIC, SoCs and systems. Harry Foster Chief Architect Verplex Systems, Inc. xviii Writing Testbenches: Functional Verification of HDL Models PREFACE If you survey hardware design groups, you will learn that between 60% and 80% of their effort is now dedicated to verification. : Review: "Brilliant. Janick Bergeron has built on his ground-breaking first version of Writing Testbenches in this second edition..." : (Grant Martin, Fellow, Cadence Berkeley Labs) : "In the latest edition, Mr. Bergeron continues to keep pace with the industry while providing world-class solutions to the verification problem...": (Chris Macinonski, Senior Engineer, Qualis Design Corp.) : "Many companies out there now owe their current verification methodologies to this book. From it they have learned the secrets of efficiency, effectiveness and re-use as they apply to verification..." : (Brian Bailey, Chief Technologist, Mentor Graphics Corp.) : "A must have bible for understanding verification issues and techniques with HDLs and HVLs, and for writing effective, readable and reusable testbenches within a best-in-class verification process." : (Ben Cohen, VhdlCohen Training) Size: 15.6 x 2.9 x 23.4 cm. 512 pages.

Book Description: Flash floods, tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, mudslides, thunderstorms, and wildfires - these devastating events are happening around the world at an alarming rate. As CNN's meteorologist, Bonnie Schneider reports daily on these natural disasters, explaining when they're likely to strike, andtelling viewers how to respond when they do. In Extreme Weather, Schneider distills that information into a guide for readers. She interviews experts from a wide variety of agencies - from FEMA to NOAA - to provide a comprehensive understanding of the science behind weather patterns and the latest thinking on how to act in dangerous conditions. Ranging from topics that cover every season and every climate, Schneider introduces the reader to the best course of action during weather emergencies, including: *how to move around in heavy snow: *how to handle extreme weather scenarios in your car, outside, or at home: *how to predict potential dangers when planning a camping trip or vacation: *what you need to have at home to prepare for floods, earthquakes, or severe storms*how to create a family evacuation plan for different emergencies: *making sure your beloved pet is taken care of in time of disaster: Extreme Weather provides details on what to have in emergency safety kits as well as how to make a family disaster plan. : Review: 'This is a book to read on a calm night when there's hardly a breeze and the skies are clear. It will remain with you in vivid detail, and someday, when the weather turns tumultuous, this book could save your life.' - Jeffrey Zaslow, co author, The Last Lecture : 'Natural disasters and extreme weather are real events that many people don't think about until it's too late.As the nation's official provider of weather forecasts, we rely on meteorologists in the media, like Bonnie, to relay safety measures and severe weather warnings to the public. In this book, Bonnie describes extreme weather and natural disasters and provides specific preparedness tips. The valuable information in this book could save a life!' - Donna Franklin, NOAA's Lightning Safety Program Lead : 'As a storm chaser for the last 13 years, I've intercepted over 200 tornadoes and a dozen powerful hurricanes. Witnessing first-hand the destruction and loss of life that can be left in the wake of tornadoes and hurricanes is the overwhelming dark side of storm chasing. Bonnie Schneider's book, Extreme Weather, breaks down the science behind extreme weather events and gives people valuable advice on what to do before, during and after mother nature's most terrifying situations.' - Reed Timmer, Meteorologist/Storm Chaser and host of the television show, 'Storm Chasers' on the Discovery Channel : Book Description: Prepare for the next natural disaster, including tornadoes, blizzards, hurricanes, earthquakes and much much more with this fun and practical guide from CNN Meteorologist Bonnie Schneider Size: 15.7 x 1.8 x 23.4 cm. 256 pages.

Available Now. Book Description: This title is one of five which make up a series that offers an in-depth introduction to contemporary themes and challenges in religious studies. Each textbook works to ensure that readers understand the relevance of methodologies to lived experience and gain the ability to transfer analytic skills to the study of religion in context. The following key issues are discussed: representation and interpretation; modernity and social change; civil religion; the impact of globalization on religion; and the growth of alternative religion. "From Sacred Text to Internet" addresses two key issues affecting the global spread of religion: first, the impact of new media on the ways in which religious traditions present their messages, and second, the global relocation of religions in novel geographical and social settings. The book offers extended studies of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism and a wide-ranging survey chapter that refers to the presence on the Internet of many of the world's most influential religions. The chapters explore the relationship between scholarly reconstructions of the life of Jesus and representations of Jesus in contemporary popular cultures; the production and use of sacred images for the Hindu mass market; how Buddhism is represented and spread in the West; the Islamization of Egypt, its causes and influences; and the uses to which the Internet is put by religions as well as how information technology has influenced the future shape of religion.

The fundamental problems remain: the origin of life, cell organization, the pathways of differentiation, aging, and the molecular and cellular capabilities of the brain. What has occurred is an explosion of molecular information obtained by genomic sequences, which will soon be followed by exhaustive catalogs of protein interactions and protein function. This wealth of information can be analyzed and manipulated only with the help of computers. The rapidly expanding role of computers in biology may usher in a profound conceptual change in how we study living systems in the laboratory.This book focuses on current computational approaches to understanding the complex networks of metabolic and gene regulatory capabilities of the cell. The contributors look well beyond the state of the art in computational biology to anticipate what biological research will be like in a post-genomic world.

The enormous potential in linguistic data - billions of utterances and messages daily - has been difficult to exploit. Many linguists have had to concentrate on introspective data with its inevitable blinders toward frequency, variation, and naturalness. Applications of linguistics have been handicapped. This volume explores the potential advantages of database applications to linguistics. Included in this volume are reports on database activities in phonetics, phonology, lexicography and syntax, comparative grammar, second-language acquisition, linguistic fieldwork, and language pathology. The book presents the specialized problems of multi-media (especially audio) and multi-lingual texts, including those in exotic writing systems. Implemented solutions are also discussed. The opportunities to use existing, minimally structured text repositories are presented. : Book Description: Linguistic Databases explores the increasing use and potential advantages of databases in linguistics.

"388 Pages. The analysis of human behaviour from the viewpoint of network developments has gained much scientific attention. Especially in a spatial context, many network models have been designed. Network models centre their analysis around the spatial behaviour of individuals or groups in an organized pattern of nodes and links. Since the 1970s, a wide range of such models has been developed and applied. Examples are linear programming models, chaos models, spatial competition models and many others. Some of these models were rooted in behavioural foundations of social or economic choice, others were based on analogous interpretations from the natural sciences. Some of these models are based on macro minimizing principles. There is thus a great variety of approaches to the analysis of network behaviour. This volume aims to offer an overview of the potential of neural network analysis for research applications in the transportation sector. It does not only focus on engineering types of approaches, but also on social science applications in the transport systems examined at VTT in Finland."

"Book Description: The power and speed of modern IT environments is such that wiping out, disclosing or corrupting an organization's records, whether deliberately or by accident, could be efficiently and silently accomplished in a very short time. Despite being aware of this issue, most organizations do not have a policy on risk and do not undertake risk analysis and management. The chapters in this book were originally papers presented at a seminar organized by UNICOM, and addresses the key points in data security. Issues covered include understanding what can go wrong and what to do about it, learning to cut through the confusing terminology, understanding the value of a risk policy and how to implement one; understanding the relevant costs and benefits of a variety of measures such as risk analysis, awareness of programs, cryptography and access control procedures. The law itself now addresses data security directly through the recent Data Protection and Computer Misuse acts. It is important to understand their implications in order to become a beneficiary rather than a victim of this legislation. This text is suitable for information-intensive organizations, IT specialists, data security managers, security consultants, insurance specialists, computer auditors and data processing managers." 166 pages.

192 Pages. In this book, renowned Renaissance drama critic Arthur F. Kinney argues that Shakespeare's method of composing plays through networks of meanings can be seen as a harbinger of today's information technology. Drawing upon hypertext and cognitive theory--areas that have for some time promised to take on more importance in the sphere of Shakespeare Studies--as well as the central metaphor of the Routledge collection The Renaissance Computer, Kinney looks in detail at four objects/images in Shakespeare's plays--mirrors, maps, clocks, and books--and explores the ways in which they make up networks of meaning within single plays and across the dramatist's body of work that anticipate in some ways the networks of meaning or "information" now possible in the computer age.

"Book Description: This text deals with societal decision-making relating to large-scale, major energy facilities (abbreviated hereafter as MEFs): hydro-power developments, nuclear power plants, and off-shore petroleum projects. In Norway, as in many other countries, national authorities have a major responsiblity for the planning, financing and construction of such projects. Construction of large-scale energy facilities is part of industrialization and modernization. MEF projects are often major engineering feats as well as symbols for advanced industrialization. However, in Western nations, decisions about MEFs have over the last decades become increasingly controversial. It is enough to mention planning and construction of nuclear power plants in West Germany, Austria, Sweden and the USA as well as Norway, and hydro-power projects in Austria and Norway. In many ways such projects transcend the scope of government or state decision-making. They affect the dynamic relationship between state decision-making, on the one hand, and the distributive effects of - and social reactions to - the decisions, on the other hand. Such impacts of MEFs have led us to conceptualize decisions about MEF projects as societal decision-making. This type of decision-making extends beyond sector and even formal political institutions."
