"Today there is massive interest in how digital tools and popular culture are transforming learning out of school and lots of dismay at how digitally lost our schools are. Jabari Mahiri works his usual magic and here shows us how to cross this divide in a solidly grounded and beautifully written book."---James Paul Gee, Fulton Presidential Professor of Literacy Studies, Arizona State University""Digital Tools in Urban Schools" is a profoundly sobering yet inspiring depiction of the potential for committed educators to change the lives of urban youth, with the assistance of a new set of technical capabilities."---Mimi Ito, Professor in Residence and MacArthur Foundation Chair in Digital Media and Learning, Departments of Informatics and Anthropology, University of California, Irvine"An uplifting book that addresses a critical gap in existing literature by providing rich and important insights into ways teachers, administrators, and members of the wider community can work together with students previously alienated---even excluded---from formal education to enhance classroom learning with appropriate digital tools and achieve inspiring results under challenging circumstances."---Colin Lankshear, James Cook University, and Michele Knobel, Montclair State University"Digital Tools in Urban Schools" demonstrates significant ways in which high school teachers in the complex educational setting of an urban public high school in northern California extended their own professional learning to revitalize learning in their classrooms. Through a novel research collaboration between a university and this public school, these teachers were supported and guided in developing the skills necessary to take greater advantage of new media and new information sources to increase student learning while making connections to their relevant experiences and interests. Jabari Mahiri draws on extensive qualitative data---including blogs, podcasts, and other digital media---to document, describe, and analyze how the learning of both students and teachers was dramatically transformed as they utilized digital media in their classrooms." Digital Tools in Urban Schools" will interest instructional leaders and participants in teacher preparation and professional development programs, education and social science researchers and scholars, graduate and undergraduate programs and classes emphasizing literacy and learning, and those focused on urban education issues and conditions.

This book is written in two parts. One describes how Allen Weinstein, at seventy-nine, has become who he is today, overcoming obstacles that were deemed impossible. He couldn't read until he was thirteen and was labeled and written off by our educational system. He never believed he was a failure even if he failed. One Sunday night, he went to sleep a multimillionaire and woke up Monday morning completely broke. Yet he never gave up. What motivates him, and what keeps him strong? In this book, he describes how you can use the same concepts that he applied to his life no matter the situation or the obstacles facing you. You need to set goals and keep focused on these goals at all times. Never believe in failure and learn from your mistakes. Allen's an avid health enthusiast who can be found in the gym every morning. Allen's love for, and appreciation of, the arts and people come from his very soul. At any given time in his life, he has been known to, and still, mentor and advice people, helping them reach their highest potential. Allen is not a doctor or a psychiatrist; however, his advice has proven most valuable to those who have sought it. He has a unique way of looking at the world and would love to share his insights with you through this book. Allen Weinstein would love to hear your thoughts, questions, comments, and experiences at email@example.com.
The capacity to mount stone tools in or on a handle is considered an important innovation in past human behavior. The insight to assemble two different materials (organic and inorganic) into a better functioning entity indicates the presence of the required mental capacity and technological expertise. Although the identification of stone tool use based on microscopic analysis was introduced in the 1960s, distinguishing between handheld and hafted tool use has remained a more difficult issue. This volume introduces a methodology, based on a systematic, in-depth study of prehension and hafting traces on experimental stone artifacts. The author proposes a number of distinctive macro- and microscopic wear traits for identifying handheld and hafted stone tools and for identifying the exact hafting arrangement. Included with this book is a CD-ROM that contains additional data tables and images.
