More Details..

Markdown is the easiest way to create web (HTML) content, and can be used to generate PDFs, Word and other documents with all the flexibility of CSS styling. The syntax is easy to learn and the various flavors of Markdown extend it to a point where it's adaptible enough to handle most needs.

Working in plain text means creating future-proof documents that can shift with the changing tides of content creation tools and presentation formats. It's an ideal means of content creation for everyone from web professionals to office workers, and from casual bloggers to authors of long-form works.

This course begins by explaining the basic syntax of Markdown, as defined by John Gruber and goes on to explore other versions of Markdown, including MultiMarkdown, GitHub Flavored Markdown, Kramdown and others. It finishes by showing how to turn your Markdown into web content and polished documents.

More Details..

If you want to design intuitive and engaging web sites, apps, print materials or products, then you need to know the psychology that underlies people's behavior. 100 Things Every Designer Needs to Know About People explores both the foundational and the latest research in psychology and applies it to design. What grabs and holds attention on a page or screen? What is more important, peripheral vision or central vision? How much information is too much at one time? How do you motivate people to continue on to the next step? What line length should you use if you want people to read text on or offline? What about color? Imagery? Does font type really matter? These are just a few of the questions that the book answers.

This video is not just a set of guidelines, but a deep dive into what makes people tick. Dr. Weinschenk shares the psychology research and shows lots of examples so that you can design intuitive and engaging print, web, applications and products that match the way people think, work, and play.

This updated second edition presents an analytical description of the education systems of all European countries, following common guidelines. These conceptual guidelines consider various criteria concerning presumptions as to the quality of a good education system. One of the book central aims is to explore the paradoxical character of education, i.e. the relationship between universal values and the search for a national identity. The common structure of the different country analyses oriented by crucial problems of education worldwide guides to discover common patterns of European education compared to that of education systems outside Europe, making its reading relevant to educators around the world. The handbook provides many suggestions for further study.

More Details..

Assessment and Evaluation for Transformation in Early Childhood establishes a new, democratic and participatory approach to assessment and evaluation in early childhood. By analysing the practice of assessment and evaluation within early childhood pedagogy, it provides a clear theoretical and methodological basis for this approach and a set of practical techniques for assessment and evaluation.

Structured into three parts – context and principles, approaches and techniques and case studies, the authors show how documentation and portfolios can be an ethical mode of conducting assessment and evaluation. The third part of the text provides educational snapshots of countries that use a participatory approach to learning and teaching, and which include the pedagogical dimension of assessment and evaluation. Each of the seven illustrative case studies from three different countries bring to life the theories, principles and techniques presented throughout the book.

Key points explored include:

· The nature and purpose of assessment and evaluation within a participatory pedagogy.

·Participatory methods for assessment and evaluation.

·The search for a holistic approach to evaluation

·Pedagogic documentation: uncovering solidary learning.

· Ethical principles for holistic pedagogic evaluation

This book is a crucial read for anyone working in early childhood education who wishes to learn more about professional, practice and policy development and all those interested in the pedagogical dimensions of assessment and evaluation.

More Details..

Working with young children on the autistic spectrum and supporting them as they learn can be fascinating, challenging, often overwhelmingly difficult, but more than anything else, hugely rewarding.

Strategies to Support Children with Autism and other Complex Needs bridges the gap between explaining what autism is and finding ways to interact through having a balance of play activities interspersed with more formal teaching of skills of everyday living. This highly practical text provides a bank of strategies that are specially designed to be matched to the developmental status of each child. These strategies are endorsed by academics who have monitored the children’s responses in communicating, pretending, playing, moving, and singing and describe how the children have responded positively over time.

This book covers a variety of topics such as:

    • The importance of play for enhancing learning for children with autism and other complex needs
    • Evaluating different ways of developing communication
    • Transferring  learning from one environment to another to aid memorizing.
    • Understanding the impact of sensory hypo and hyperactivity on children’s learning.
    • Developing a ‘Theory of Mind’
    • The importance of movement, music and having fun

Observation and assessment schedules are provided, along with clear and helpful evaluation forms which show staff in primary and early years settings how children on the autistic spectrum can be helped to make meaningful and encouraging progress.

This text is an vital read for any practitioners working with children on the autistic spectrum or with complex learning difficulties.

This book covers the historical development of special provision and key legislation, policy-making, the identification and assessment of young people’s special or additional learning and behaviour needs, and ways to address barriers to learning associated with various kinds of difficulty.

Essential revisions to this second edition include:

  • discussion of the implications of the 2014 Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice: 0 to 25 years for Heads, governors, SENCos, staff, students and families in schools in England,
  • a focus on the law relating to special or additional support needs in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and its implications,
  • an update on statutory assessment requirements and advice on compiling them, including the new Education Health and Care Plans in England.

This book is an ideal starting point for all those with questions about what constitutes special educational needs and disability and how individuals can be supported in practice. It is essential reading for policy-makers, trainees, teachers and all those working with young people who experience difficulties and their families.

Fully updated to help teachers deal with the new 2016 Grammar Tests, this second edition presents a collection of simple to use, multi-sensory games and activities that will jumpstart pupils’ understanding of grammar in action

It includes coverage of the subjunctive and past progressive, selecting which tense is the most definite, identifying when a word is used as a subordinating conjunction/preposition, explaining how a comma can change meaning, and an increased emphasis on the passive. Jumpstart! Grammar will prepare children for any grammar tests on the horizon in an engaging way so that they love playing with words and spinning sentences to make ideas dance. And, of course, they will be able to name the parts if that is what is required.

Fun games will focus first on helping children hear the difference various types of grammar can make followed by activities to help them understand what different effects you can create with grammar. Technical terms will only be introduced once the children have established what the various features can do, with a particular focus on those terms that really help children discuss what makes language coherent and effective.

This indispensable, practical book celebrates the joys of language and coherent expression; of finding just the right words or phrases to express what you want to say.

A Guided Reader to Early Years and Primary English draws on extracts from the published work of some of the most influential education writers to provide insight, guidance and clarity about key issues affecting early years practitioners and primary English teachers.

The book brings together key extracts from classic and contemporary writing and contextualises these in both theoretical and practical terms. The extracts are accompanied by a summary of the key ideas and issues raised, questions to promote discussion and reflective practice, and annotated further reading lists to extend thinking.

Taking a thematic approach and including a short introduction to each theme, the chapters cover:

  • Models of and approaches to early years and primary English;
  • Speaking and listening in English lessons: story-telling, drama, ‘booktalk’ and debate;
  • Reading and responding to texts in English lessons;
  • Writing in English lessons: finding a ‘voice’;
  • Knowledge about language: grammar, spelling, punctuation and handwriting;
  • The rich landscape of children’s literature;
  • Non-fiction in English lessons;
  • Planning, assessing and recording children’s progress: the learning cycle.

Aimed at trainee and newly qualified teachers, those working towards Masters level qualifications and all those involved in the teaching of early years and primary English, this accessible, but critically provocative text will be an essential resource for those that wish to deepen their understanding of early years and primary English education.
