Zur Reformpädagogik: Maria Montessoris Beitrag zur Reformpädagogik wirkt nachhaltig bis in unsere Zeit; die Bedeutung ihres Werks ist unbestritten, und ihre Schriften sind nach wie vor aktuell. Mit der historisch-kritischen Ausgabe des erstmals 1909 erschienenen Werkes über "Die Methode der wissenschaftlichen Pädagogik angewandt auf die Erziehung des Kindes in den Kinderhäusern" eröffnet der Herder Verlag das ebenso beeindruckende wie ehrgeizige Projekt einer auf insgesamt über zwanzig Bände angelegten Studienausgabe sämtlicher von Maria Montessori publizierten Schriften sowie Teile ihres unveröffentlichten Werks. Die Gründe für diese wissenschaftliche Neuedition sind zahlreich und stichhaltig, und auch die dafür gewählte Form ist ebenso beeindruckend wie überzeugend: So beinhaltet der erste Band der Gesammelten Werke nicht nur den vollständigen Text der 1950 unter dem Titel "Die Entdeckung des Kindes" erschienenen fünften Auflage der erwähnten Veröffentlichung aus dem Jahre 1909, sondern darüber hinaus Anhänge mit zusammenhängenden Texten der Autorin aus früheren Auflagen, mit weiteren Texten der Ärztin und Pädagogin zur Thematik des Bandes sowie mit Personen- und Sachregistern, welche die Orientierung im umfangreichen Werk ermöglichen und erleichtern. -ntz.

Digital devices, such as smart phones and tablet computers, are becoming commonplace in young children’s lives for play, entertainment, learning and communication. Recently, there has been a great deal of focus on the educational potential of these devices in both formal and informal educational settings. There is now an abundance of educational ‘apps’ available to children, parents, and teachers, which claim to enhance children’s early literacy and numeracy development, but to date, there has been very little formal investigation of the educational potential of these devices. This book discusses the impact on children’s learning when iPads were introduced in three very different early years settings in Brisbane, Australia. It outlines how researchers worked with pre-school teachers and parents to explore how iPads can assist with letter and word recognition, the development of oral literacy and digital literacies and talk around play. Chapters consider the possibilities for using iPads for creativity and arts education through photography, storytelling, drawing, music creation and audio recording, and critically examine the literacies enabled by educational software available on iPads, and the relationship between digital play and literacy development. iPads in the Early Years provides exciting insights into children’s digital culture and learning in the age of the iPad. It will be key reading for researchers, research students and teacher educators focusing on the early years, as well as those with an interest in the role of ICTS, and particularly tablet computers, in education.
The Artist to Artist Handbook, an e-book by Maud Guilfoyle, is full of advice and tips for living an artful life. This gathering of information for all levels, beginner to advanced, is drawn from her years of creating and teaching art. Much of this knowledge is gained from her experience growing up in a household of artists, and from hours spent in the studio. Written in a conversational tone, like that found in her art classes, Maud shares freely what she has learned encouraging beginners as well as experienced artists to discover the joys and satisfactions of the daily practice of art. There is valuable information here for all artists, including children, students, recreational artists, and teachers. This book includes information on setting up a studio (whether it is in a corner of your living space or a separate room), developing a personal style and portfolio, self promotion, digital and social media, overcoming artist’s block, and financial tips specifically for artists on making and saving money. Teachers and parents will find the advice on making art with children helpful and thought provoking. Adult art students learning to draw and paint for the first time will find many practical gems to support their new-found interest. While this is not a step by step how-to book, there are numerous illustrated examples on such topics as keeping artist journals, making color charts, and composition in still life and landscape painting.

The goal of this book -- a theoretically based, well-organized, useful guide for teaching -- is to help the beginning teacher create a classroom environment that integrates literacy development with learning in all areas of the curriculum. The major components of an integrated language program are identified, and the skills teachers need to implement this kind of program in their own classrooms are described. Designed to be kept and used as a resource in the classroom, this text provides fundamental information about language arts teaching. A constructivist orientation, an emphasis on teachers as reflective decision makers, and vivid portrayals of the classroom as a community of learners and inquirers are woven throughout the book. Key features include: * a wealth of models, suggestions, and step-by-step guidelines for introducing integrated teaching and learning practices into elementary classrooms at the kindergarten, primary, and intermediate levels; * a focus on relevant research in language arts and professional teacher development; * true-to-life classroom narratives that model instructional strategies and demonstrate interactions between real teachers and students; and * an innovative chapter format that makes the text accessible as a resource for student, beginning, and experienced teachers.
