Die UN-Konvention aus dem Jahre 2006 fordert, dass Menschen mit Behinderungen in die Gesellschaft miteinbezogen werden mussen. Die Autorinnen dieses Buches beschreiben den aktuellen Stand der Inklusion von Menschen mit Autismus-Spektrum-Storungen in Deutschland. Thematisiert werden verschiedene Alltagsbereiche wie Kindergarten, Schule, Ausbildung und Studium, Beruf oder Freizeitgestaltung. Es werden jeweils Fakten, Probleme, Herausforderungen und mogliche Losungen prasentiert. Eine zentrale Aussage des Buches ist, dass es den einen Weg fur eine erfolgreiche Inklusion von Menschen mit Autismus-Spektrum-Storungen nicht gibt. Orientierungspunkt sollte stattdessen immer der individuelle Mensch mit seinen individuellen Bedurfnissen sein. Diskutiert werden in diesem Ratgeber auch Fragen: Wie viel Inklusion wollen Menschen mit Autismus-Spektrum-Storungen? Ist die Gesellschaft bereit zur Inklusion?

Inklusion und Exklusion sind elementare Kategorien der Soziologie. Beide Begriffe verweisen auf paradoxe Konsequenzen, die die empirische Forschung inspiriert haben. Inklusion in eine begrenzte Zahl von Subsystemen bedeutet gleichzeitig Exklusion aus allen anderen Subsystemen. Exklusion aus einem Unternehmen (Arbeitslosigkeit) hat gleichzeitig eine Inklusion in andere Formen der Vergesellschaftung zur Folge (sozialstaatliche Fürsorge). In diesem Band werden die Begriffe Inklusion und Exklusion auf zentrale Probleme der Sozialstruktur und der sozialen Ungleichheit angewandt. Ungleiche Chancen im Bildungssystem haben Exklusion und Marginalisierung auf dem Arbeitsmarkt zur Folge. Die Auflösung von Netzwerken hat weitreichende Konsequenzen für die Struktur einer nationalen Ökonomie (Deutschland AG). Am Beispiel der Flüchtlinge aus den deutschen Ostgebieten wird der konfliktreiche Inklusionsprozess einer Migrationsbevölkerung nach dem 2. Weltkrieg nachgezeichnet. Prozesse der räumlichen Inklusion/Exklusion verschärfen die Probleme der Armutsbevölkerung im innerstädtischen Ghetto.

This edited volume discusses UNESCO's contributions to inclusive education over the past 20 years, the normative and technical leadership roles this organization has been playing together with its peers and competitors in educational development, and the current status of this issue in academic debates, as well as conceptualizations from different cultures. The chapters reflect and critically discuss a range of positions on the relation between inclusive education, educatino for all, and special needs education and particularly express the role disability plays in these thematic contexts. The book brings to light that although the term inclusive education is commonly associated with people with disabilities, there are contexts - e.g., research strands on school development in the UK - in which inclusive education is considered as an approach in which the focus of special (needs) education is widened in terms of the target group, reaching out to the heterogeneity of learners, thus taking diversity as a starting point for educational theory and practice. This book highlights the differences in narratives of inclusive education in the United States and abroad and is intended to bridge the various approaches to the study of inclusive education and disability, particularly in the US, the UK, and the Nordic countries within Europe. Although academics and students in Disability Studies are the target audience, the book is also of high relevance to policy makers in the growing field of inclusive education, as well as being potentially interesting for practitioners in education and social work.

This fully revised and updated edition of Learning, Creating, and Using Knowledge recognizes that the future of economic well being in today's knowledge and information society rests upon the effectiveness of schools and corporations to empower their people to be more effective learners and knowledge creators. Novak’s pioneering theory of education presented in the first edition remains viable and useful. This new edition updates his theory for meaningful learning and autonomous knowledge building along with tools to make it operational ─ that is, concept maps, created with the use of CMapTools and the V diagram. The theory is easy to put into practice, since it includes resources to facilitate the process, especially concept maps, now optimised by CMapTools software. CMapTools software is highly intuitive and easy to use. People who have until now been reluctant to use the new technologies in their professional lives are will find this book particularly helpful. Learning, Creating, and Using Knowledge is essential reading for educators at all levels and corporate managers who seek to enhance worker productivity.

This book is devoted to the Educational Data Mining arena. It highlights works that show relevant proposals, developments, and achievements that shape trends and inspire future research. After a rigorous revision process sixteen manuscripts were accepted and organized into four parts as follows: · Profile: The first part embraces three chapters oriented to: 1) describe the nature of educational data mining (EDM); 2) describe how to pre-process raw data to facilitate data mining (DM); 3) explain how EDM supports government policies to enhance education. · Student modeling: The second part contains five chapters concerned with: 4) explore the factors having an impact on the student's academic success; 5) detect student's personality and behaviors in an educational game; 6) predict students performance to adjust content and strategies; 7) identify students who will most benefit from tutor support; 8) hypothesize the student answer correctness based on eye metrics and mouse click. · Assessment: The third part has four chapters related to: 9) analyze the coherence of student research proposals; 10) automatically generate tests based on competences; 11) recognize students activities and visualize these activities for being presented to teachers; 12) find the most dependent test items in students response data. · Trends: The fourth part encompasses four chapters about how to: 13) mine text for assessing students productions and supporting teachers; 14) scan student comments by statistical and text mining techniques; 15) sketch a social network analysis (SNA) to discover student behavior profiles and depict models about their collaboration; 16) evaluate the structure of interactions between the students in social networks. This volume will be a source of interest to researchers, practitioners, professors, and postgraduate students aimed at updating their knowledge and find targets for future work in the field of educational data mining.
