This illuminating investigation takes a fresh look at the role of media in children's lives. An overview of the formidable challenges parents face and creative ways to overcome them are included, as are strategies for turning a home environment from "high-tech" to "high-touch." Moving beyond demonizing the media, this work, like none before it, articulates the difficulties of parenting in our depersonalized society. It offers hopeful alternatives for all parents wanting to protect children from, and teach children about, media's impact.

TEACHING CHILDREN MONEY MATTERS HOW CAN ADULTS HELP THEIR CHILDREN LEARN TO AVOID CREDIT CARD DEBT AND BE BETTER PREPARED TO HANDLE THEIR OWN FUTURE FINANCES? All adults would like a secure financial future for their children. Throughout this book, you will find numerous ideas, techniques, strategies and lessons that will provide answers to those very questions. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, teacher or student, you will find ideas and resources to begin understanding how to better help your children manage their money and have secure financial futures. In order to teach our children how to handle their finances, we need to educate ourselves and use available resources on the topic. Let this book GUIDE you to do just that. Deanna W. Schwartzman and Deanna M. Suckow are former teachers who have retired, each after more than a quarter-century in the classroom. Their experiences have been with regular and special education students. Each has been married for almost 50 years. Their current total of grandchildren stands at nine. It was with these grandchildren in mind that they began the research project which has culminated in this book. They were determined that their grandchildren have the knowledge of money management for a successful, well-informed financial future. With all these grandchildren and the present day economy, they joined together to write Teaching Children Money Matters (a resource guide for parents, grandparents, teachers and students) and its companion book, What Every Preteen, Teenager and Young Adult Needs to Know to Avoid Credit Card Debt (21 statements that may change how the future generations handle money to secure their future finances.)

Supporting children and young people to participate safely, effectively, critically and responsibly in a world filled with social media and digital technologies is a priority for educators the world over. Most young people in Europe today were born and have grown up in the digital era. Education authorities have the duty to ensure that these digital citizens are fully aware of the norms of appropriate behaviour when using constantly evolving technology and participating in digital life. Despite worldwide efforts to address such issues, there is a clear need for education authorities to take the lead on digital citizenship education and integrate it into school curricula. In 2016, the Education Department of the Council of Europe began work to develop new policy orientations and strategies to help educators face these new challenges and to empower young people by helping them to acquire the competences they need to participate actively and responsibly in digital society. This volume, the first in a Digital Citizenship Education series, reviews the existing academic and policy literature on digital citizenship education, highlighting definitions, actors and stakeholders, competence frameworks, practices, emerging trends and challenges. The inclusion of a wide selection of sources is intended to ensure sufficient coverage of what is an emergent topic that has yet to gain a strong foothold in either education or academic literature, but has received wider policy attention.

Recognizing that the literacy demands that students now face require their active involvement in their own learning, this book considers a wide variety of ways to encourage that involvement. The book describes how teachers' practices foster literacy communities in their classrooms that can help students achieve the standards for the English language arts developed by the National Council of Teachers of English and the International Reading Association. The book states that students and teachers in these classrooms work together at learning hubs, develop their own criteria for revising work in progress, initiate conferences and book chats, and inquire into questions that are significant to them. Of special interest in the book are ideas for how students can take advantage of the new technological resources becoming available in many classrooms, and how the classroom community might also involve parents and others outside the school.
