Although ideas about digital media and learning have become an important area for educational research, little attention has been given to the practical and conceptual implications for the school curriculum. In this book, Ben Williamson examines a series of contemporary curriculum innovations in the United States, Great Britain, and Australia that reflect the social and technological changes of the digital age. Arguing that the curriculum is always both forward- and rearward-looking, Williamson considers how each of these innovations represents a certain way of understanding the past while also promoting a particular vision of the future. The curriculum initiatives are all examples of what Williamson calls 'centrifugal schooling,' expressing a vision of education and learning that is decentered, distributed, and dispersed, emphasizing networks and connections. In centrifugal schooling, a curriculum is actively assembled and improvised from a heterogeneous mix of people, groups, coalitions, and institutional structures. Participants in curriculum design and planning include local governments, corporations, foundations, charities, and nongovernmental organizations. Among the curriculum innovations Williamson examines are High Tech High, a charter school network in San Diego that integrates technical and academic education; Opening Minds, a 'competence-based' curriculum used in 200 British secondary schools; and Quest to Learn, a 'school for digital kids' in New York City (with a sister school in Chicago). He also describes two major partnerships: the Partnership for 21st Century Skills, which advocates for '21st century readiness' for American students; and the Whole Education Alliance in Britain, a network of 'third sector' educational organizations.

'As a mom, wife, and social media entrepreneur, Mallika Chopra frequently wondered how she could possibly do one more thing. Like so many, she was taking lousy care of herself and having a difficult time finding richer meaning and purpose in each day, even though that was her business's mission. Living with Intent is a practical yet deeply personal look at her year-long journey to discover some workable answers. Along the way, she sat down with Andrew Weil, Eckhart Tolle, Gretchen Rubin, Marianne Williamson, Daniel Siegel, and others, who shared their valuable input and insight'--

10,90 CHF *

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject Communications - Public Relations, Advertising, Marketing, Social Media, grade: second upper degree, University of Lincoln (-), 12 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Semiotics is often easily described as the study of signs, though this definition does not foreshadow the dimension of this topic. The reason for this is that the term 'sign' is a concept of broad comprehension; a sign is a meaningful unit, which is interpreted as 'standing for' something other than itself. Signs are found in the physical form of words, images, sounds, acts or objects (...) they have no intrinsic meaning and become signs only when sign-users invest them with meaning with reference to a recognized code (Chandler, 2002, p.241). The definition of a sign as a 'thing-plus-meaning' was given by J. Williamson (Williamson, 2002, p.17). The meaning, which is made out of signs, is of great importance for us, because it is a means to structure our life, thus the study of signs is important within advertising that is a part of our daily life. The task of this paper is to show how signs create meaning by analysing three different advertisements for small cars of different brands. With the help of semiotics, but also by the consideration of the external environment of the advertisement, their messages should be identified. In the first chapter the model of the Swiss linguist Ferdinand de Saussure is discussed. The second chapter includes the model of the American philosopher Charles Sanders Peirce and in the third chapter the models of Roland Bathes and Erwin Panofsky are demonstrated. Starting from these models the different advertisements are discussed in chapter four to seven. Each advertisement is classified by one of the models mentioned above. The additional investigation of the target audience and the external environment will justify the different messages. The conclusion in chapter eight represents a résumé of the role of semiotics within advertising.
