Se está configurando un modelo pedagógico, al menos un discurso alimentado por las discusiones sobre indicadores, valoración de resultados, reclamando el ajuste a un mercado laboral imprevisible, planteando disquisiciones acerca de en qué se diferencia un objetivo de un contenido o de una competencia. En cambio, se devalúan los discursos acerca de temas como las culturas juveniles, cómo ofrecer una cultura que pueda interesar, qué papel tienen los educadores, quiénes son los que fracasan(José Gimeno Sacristán). Las competencias no pueden confundirse con habilidades y destrezas que, por ser simples y mecánicas, son incapaces de afrontar el cambio, la incertidumbre y la complejidad de la vida contemporánea. Colaborar en proyectos culturales, científicos, artísticos o tecnológicos de calidad es la mejor garantía de formación de estas competencias... Este programa requiere, definitivamente, refundar, reinventar la escuela que conocemos (Ángel Pérez Gómez). En definitiva, la satisfacción o insatisfacción que nos reporta la esfera pública termina por influir en nuestra vida privada, acaba por afectar a la intimidad y al sistema de creencias; y viceversa. Por tanto, es necesario el análisis de la relación entre lo público y lo privado, por cuanto esa relación oculta mecanismos de identidad tramposos que impedirá ser competente en ciudadanía (Juan Bautista Martínez Rodríguez). Se asume que vivimos en una sociedad que denominamos del conocimiento pero, en contra de lo que la lógica indicaría, este aspecto es lo que menos preocupa analizar: en qué medida la información cultural que se le ofrece al alumnado es de actualidad, relevante, pertinente, incorpora sesgos, ausencias, etc." (Jurjo Torres Santomé). Formar profesionales competentes no es lo mismo que formar con o a través de competencias. La universidad tiene que crear las condiciones para que el alumnado pueda convertirse en un profesional responsable y llegue a ejercer su profesión de una manera competente. Hemos de evitar que el Espacio de la Educación Superior convierta la Europa del Conocimiento en la Europa de las Competencias (José Félix Angulo). Evaluar y calificar-sólo lo que el alumno hace es reducir a lo más superficial su capacidad de aprender y, por tanto, su competencia cognitiva. Si sólo damos por sabido lo que el alumno puede hacer, ni el contexto ni los recursos humanos y materiales disponibles para ese control son satisfactorios porque las competencias tienen un carácter complejo, global y su aplicación no responde a un patrón fijo (Juan Manuel Álvarez Méndez).

This book describes the development of the early versions of this iconic warplane, with full technical details and many detail photos. Profusely illustrated with photos, including a comprehensive walk-around section showing all aspects of the airframe, and diagrams from official manuals. Includes 1/72nd scale plans, and color profiles showing many of the colorful schemes applied to the P-38 by its users.

From the vogue for nubile models to the explosion in the juvenile crime rate, this modern classic of social history and media traces the precipitous decline of childhood in America today−and the corresponding threat to the notion of adulthood. Deftly marshaling a vast array of historical and demographic research, Neil Postman, author of Technopoly, suggests that childhood is a relatively recent invention, which came into being as the new medium of print imposed divisions between children and adults. But now these divisions are eroding under the barrage of television, which turns the adult secrets of sex and violence into poprular entertainment and pitches both news and advertising at the intellectual level of ten-year-olds. Informative, alarming, and aphorisitc, The Disappearance of Childhood is a triumph of history and prophecy.

'Before the current global era it is impossible to imagine that comparable events [like September 11] could have occurred, reflecting as they do our new-found interdependence. The rise of global terrorism, like world-wide networks involving in money-laundering, drug-running and other forums of organised crime, are all parts of the dark side of globalisation.' From the new Preface This book is based on the highly influential BBC Reith lecture series on globalisation delivered in 1999 by Anthony Giddens. Now updated with a new chapter addressing the post-September 11th global landscape, this book remains the intellectual benchmark on how globalisation is reshaping our lives. The changes are explored in five main chapters: * Globalisation * Risk * Tradition * Family * Democracy.

Pedagogical theory arising from general education has long dominated discourse in both research and policy-making in education: this is also evident in vocational studies. Today, both locally and internationally, the complex processes of vocational pedagogy play a central role in the discussions. Work-based learning, the master-apprenticeship learning tradition, and the pedagogy of vocations and professions are all important concepts in on-going education policy debates. Contradictions between different learning traditions are clearly evident in vocational pedagogy: learning according to the workshop traditions or learning in the classroom, vocational theory and general theory, learning at school and learning in a work situation. This book is based on research in Norway and examines problems of teaching and learning in relation to vocational curricula of upper secondary schooling, apprentices’ experiences and masters thesis-writing in the field of vocational pedagogy. The book also explores the question of vocational education and gender, today and in the past.

The increasing ethnic, racial, cultural, religious, and language diversity in nations throughout the world is forcing educators and policymakers to rethink existing notions of citizenship and nationality. To experience cultural democracy and freedom, a nation must be unified around a set of democratic values such as justice and equality that balance unity and diversity and protect the rights of diverse groups. Diversity and Citizenship Education: Global Perspectives brings together in one comprehensive volume a group of international experts on the topic of diversity and citizenship education. These experts discuss and identify the shared issues and possibilities that exist when educating for national unity and cultural diversity. Diversity and Citizenship Education: Global Perspectives presents compelling case studies and examples of successful programs and practices from twelve nations, discusses problems that arise when societies are highly stratified along race, cultural, and class lines, and describes guidelines and benchmarks that practicing educators can use to structure citizenship education programs that balance unity and diversity. The book covers a broad range of issues and includes vital information on such topics as Migration, citizenship, and education The challenge of racialized citizenship in the United States The contribution of the struggles by Indians and Blacks for citizenship and recognition in Brazil Crises of citizenship education and ethnic issues in Germany, Russia, and South Africa Conflicts between religious and ethnic factions Diversity, globalization, and democratic education
