Download PDF The Many Tongues of Literacy by Ray B. Browne and published by Popular Press. This book was released on 1992-06 with total page 210 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Statistics indicate that more than half the population of America is illiterate or subliterate in the conventional sense, but very literate in other media such as television, sports, and leisure time activities. But statistics can lie or tell only half a fact. Since the languages of literacy are constantly expanding and developing, it is time that American educators, and the public in general, reexamine their definitions of literacy and the media in which we need to be literate. Therefore, educators must redefine literacy if they are to be realistic about its sources, uses, and values. The need is vital to a developing world.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The effects of globalization have long been dealt with in terms of economic and technological consequences, but what about the influence on education? Though still not a precise concept, what we understand as “globalization” is bringing forth numerous and profound changes in the economic, cultural, and political life of nations. With increased opportunities for interaction and learning, education around the world is rapidly becoming transformed. The essays contained in this comprehensive yet readable book, strive to provide a thorough examination of the impact these changes are having on how education is defined, whom it serves, and how it is assessed around the world.

The first addresses conceptual and theoretical issues underlying such notions as globalization, internationalization, and multilateralism. The second presents empirical data from various contries and provides examples of shifts and transformations within a specific level or modality of the educational system. The third looks at the totality of educational changes taking the nation as the unit of analysis.
Download PDF Between Two Ages by William Van Dusen Wishard and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2001-06-29 with total page 352 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "In Between Two Ages, Van Wishard has provided us with a masterful synthesis of the main currents of history, ranging over the centuries with an experts eye to identify the key trends in economics, technology and culture that have led us to this place in time. By itself, this would be an important contribution to our understanding. But the true significance of Between Two Ages lies in his placing this analysis within a profoundly moral and ethical framework. Van Wishard has not simply diagnosed the reasons for our spiritual malaise. He has also suggested how each of us can overcome this malaise and find a larger purpose or meaning to our lives. From the foreword by Dr. Mitchell B. Reiss Dean of International Affairs College of William & Mary Introduction Despite the stratospheric heights of the Dow in recent years, the allure of prosperity and the astounding possibilities opening up for human fulfillment, the next three decades could be the most decisive 30-year period in the history of mankind. Thus you and I are living in the midst of perhaps the most uncertain period America has ever known -- more difficult than World War II, the Depression or even the Civil War. With these earlier crises, an immediately identifiable, focused emergency existed, an emergency people could see and mobilize to combat. But the crisis today is of a different character and order. For America is at the vortex of a global cyclone of change so vast and deep that it is uprooting established institutions, altering centuries-old relationships, changing underlying mores and attitudes, and now, so the experts tell us, even threatening the continued existence of the human species. It is not simply change at the margins; it is change at the very core of life. Culture-smashing change. Identity-shattering change. Soul-crushing change. Prior generations faced change within a context of stable institutions that functioned more or less effectively. Earlier generations had a more stableif less comfortableframework, as well as more clearly defined reference points. Our era doesnt have such guides, for all of Americas institutions, from government to family, from business to religion, are in upheaval. The past century has seen civilized life increasingly ripped from its moorings. The immutable certainties that anchored our ancestors no longer seem to hold in a world where the tectonic plates of life are clashing, where human antagonisms obliterate tens of thousands of people in Africa, Bosnia or Chechnya in a matter of a few days or weeks, where a stray bullet ends the life of an elderly lady quietly walking home from church in Washington, D.C. In so many ways, a life that has lost its essential meaning has cut giant swaths across humanity. Clearly, we have been standing at a unique historical dividing line -- the end of the modern era, as well as the Industrial Age, the end of the colonial period, the end of the Atlantic-based economic, political and military global hegemony, the end of Americas culture being drawn primarily from European sources, the end of the masculine patriarchal/hierarchical epoch, and as Joseph Campbell suggests, the end of the Christian eon. Obviously, one era doesnt stop and a new one start in a week. Yearseven decades or generationsof overlap take place. The sense of an age ending and something new emerging was evident during the earliest years of the 20th century. In 1913, Harvard philosopher George Santayana noted: "The civilization characteristic of Christendom has not yet disappeared, yet another civilization has begun to take its place." In 1928, at the height of the "Roaring Twenties," historian Will Durant wrote, "Human conduct and belief are now undergoing transformations profounder and more disturbing than any since the appearance of wealth and philosophy put an end to the tradition
Download PDF Network Africa-A Complex System by John David Cluett and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2012-12-11 with total page 101 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Royalties of the sale of this book go towards supporting children in South Africa" This book is organised into four parts that are interrelated as a thread that runs through my 70 year life as a person, and as a researcher on topics that are dealt with in the corresponding parts in the body of this book. I do not claim any exclusivity to any of these learnings that have been researched and published by me, as can be seen at the end of the book under Bibliography, but put them at the service of the readers that they may apply them and add value to their own lives and business scenarios. I also stress the importance of cultural beliefs and gender issues, as they are key to effective communication and peace. Part 1 traces my life in Spain during the Civil War and World War 2 at Rio Tinto and my schooling at Stonyhurst College a traditional Catholic school. I married in Malta and had two children. This ended in separation and divorce leading to my living apart from my children for 20 years. The scenario of my family in South Africa outlines the marriage and establishment of a peaceful and secure home environment and eventually being reunited with the family in Malta. Part 2 describes my 50 year career in brewing industry with experiences in Malta, Denmark, India, USA, Canada, Spain, China – Hong Kong, Mozambique and South Africa. The political changes in South Africa in 1994 brought with it many challenges to integrate the previously disadvantaged majority of people into equal living, working and educational standards and conditions. Business travel to various parts of the world required ongoing communication with local and business people to forge relationships that have lasted over the years. Part 3 deals with the social, religious and political scenarios in Spain, during the Civil War and World War 2, in India and in South Africa, and how these effected the working environments. Part 4. Network Africa – A Complex System, originally conceived by me in 1998, describes a process of change that can be applied in many Complex Systems. . It explains the elements required to achieve change in a peaceful and sustainable manner within different world scenarios.
