"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.

Jake Cargyle is the billionaire heir to the Cargyle fortune - one of L.A.'s biggest computer tech firms - and also one of the major enterprises of an ancient bear shifter family that has run its business quietly for centuries. After the death of Jake's father, the control of the company has fallen squarely on him, and it is an almost unbearable weight of responsibility. Trying to figure out his own feelings about the death of his father, the new expectations that have been forced on him, and his own inherent coming-to-terms with his shifter heritage, he finds himself heading to Japan for a meeting with one of the branch heads. But one night he visits a traditional izakaya bar and meets Miko, and is immediately taken with her. She's funny, intelligent, owns her own bar, and seems somehow infatuated with showing him her hometown of Osaka. As the two grow closer, Jake finds himself drawn between two worlds, and unable to reconcile them both - his growing affection for Miko is balanced by an opposing concern that if she ever learns his true nature, she will only see a monster - a bakemono. As his time begins to run short, and he faces the reality of heading back to the States, will he find the courage to tell Miko how he feels about her? And what will the consequences be if she ever learns his true identity?
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.
