Die Wissenschaft hat in den letzten Jahrzehnten vieles über den Haufen geworfen, was wir darüber zu wissen glaubten, wie das Gehirn Informationen aufnimmt und verarbeitet. Fest steht: Wir lernen von Geburt an schnell, effizient und automatisch. Weil wir diesen Vorgang unbedingt systematisieren wollen, betrachten wir Vergessen, Schlafen und Tagträumen als hinderlich. Dabei sind sie wertvolle Hilfsmittel, die den Eigenarten unseres Gehirns Rechnung tragen. Benedict Carey erklärt, mit welchen Methoden wir uns Stoffe leichter einprägen und unser problemlösendes Denken verbessern können und wie wir die Potenziale des Unbewussten möglichst effizient nutzen – lernen, ohne nachzudenken. Nebenbei erfahren wir, dass Ablenkung zu Unrecht verteufelt wird, Wiederholung keineswegs immer weiterhilft und es sinnvoll ist, sich zu Themen testen zu lassen, über die man noch gar nichts weiß. Ein äußerst unterhaltsam geschriebenes Buch voller überraschender Erkenntnisse, das zeigt: Lernen muss keine Qual sein.

The current emphasis on individualised intervention programmes for students with special needs may not only be impractical, but also undesirable. This book compares and contrasts special needs approaches with school effectiveness strategies. The author sets out theories about inclusive schooling that arise out of a detailed scrutiny of practice. The link between theory and practice will be welcomed by many practitioners. With extensive examples from the field to illustrate Ainscow's ideas, this is an eminently accessible text.

Diese Sammlung von Schriften aus der Zeit von 1970 bis 1990 des brasilianischen Pädagogen Paulo Freire (1921-1997) gibt einen Einblick in die Grundlagen und Prinzipien seiner Bildungsarbeit auf der Basis der Pädagogik der Befreiung. In den ausgewählten Texten werden nicht nur pädagogische Probleme und inhaltlich-methodische Fragen der Bildungsarbeit thematisiert. Sie enthalten ebenso Analysen und Bewertungen von Politik, Kultur, Religion, Ethik und Veränderungsmöglichkeiten von Gesellschaft - eine Erweiterung, die sich gegen eine Vorstellung wendet, Pädagogik sei von Gesellschaft und Politik losgelöst zu behandeln. Scharfsinnig hat Freire u.a. die verheerenden Folgen des Neoliberalismus für Individuum und Gesellschaft analysiert und zum widerständigen Denken und Handeln ermuntert. Eine Auswahl repräsentativer alter und neuer Texte von Paulo Freire: Wer sie zur Hand nimmt, entdeckt rasch, dass uns dieser brasilianische Pädagoge nicht nur für die Theorie und Praxis unserer Erziehungsarbeit, sondern für unser Überleben Entscheidendes zu sagen hat.

Garr Reynolds ist wieder da. Autor des über 150.000 Mal verkauften Bestsellers über Präsentationsde- sign und Vortragskunst. Er zeigt uns in dieser neuen Auflage seines Klassikers "Zen oder die Kunst der Präsentation", dass man sein Publikum mit klarer Darstellung und guten Geschichten am besten erreicht. Garr greift die gängige Vorstellung von "Folienpräsentationen" an und zeigt, wie wir anregende und erfolgreichere Präsentationen gestalten und vortragen können. Er inspiriert mit neuen Beispielen und zeigt Techniken, mit denen wir Lärm und Ablenkung des modernen Lebens ausblenden und die Zuhörerschaft fesseln können. Garr verbindet seine Argumente mit den Lehren des Zen und weist damit den Weg zu einfache- ren und effektiven Präsentationen, die vom Publikum angenommen, erinnert und - vor allem - beherzigt werden. "Presentation Zen änderte mein Leben und das Leben meiner Kunden. Die Philosophie, die Garr in seinem Buch so elegant erläutert, wird Ihr Publikum inspirieren. Denken Sie nicht einmal daran, eine Präsentation ohne dieses Buch zu halten!" (Carmine Gallo, Autor von "The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs") "Garr hat hinsichtlich der Art, wie wir über die Macht von Präsentationen denken, Neuland betreten. Noch wichtiger: Er hat eine ganze Generation von Kommunikatoren gelehrt, wie sie ihre Aufgabe besser erledigen. Verpassen Sie dieses Buch nicht." (Seth Godin, legendärer Präsentator und Autor von "We Are All Weird") "Wenn Ihnen Qualität und Klarheit Ihrer Präsentationen wichtig sind - und das sollten sie - nehmen Sie dieses Buch, lesen Sie jede Seite und beherzigen Sie seine Lehren. Presentation Zen ist ein zeitgenössischer Klassiker." (Daniel H. Pink, Autor von "Drive" und "Unsere kreative Zukunft")

School reform is a top priority for governments today. This timely and challenging book, edited by leading international researchers, Kathryn Riley and Karen Seashore Louis, offers a rich comparative perspective on leadership for change and school reform. Contributors form North America, Europe and Australia demonstrate how school leadership is influenced by global pressures, differing national and state contexts and local concerns. They illustrate the limitations of reform initiatives which focus on school leaders tot he exclusion of the many other organisations which affect school, such as national and local governments, professional associations and school communities. This book raises some important questions such as: *How can school leaders create intelligent, thinking schools? *How can leadership and learning be linked together? *What are the characteristics of effective local education authorities and school districts? *What is the role of teacher organisations in educational reform and change? *What happens if businesses, teachers, parents and local communities have different views of what makes a good school? The text illustrates the ways in which leadership is rooted in learning, and identifies new directions for school leadership. It challenges conventional notions of leadership, offering an expanded view, which sees leadership just as an individual role-based function, but as a network of relationships among people, structures and cultures. This lively and provocative book should be read by all those interested in education reform.
