There is no one answer to the question of what's worth teaching, but with the tools in this book, you'll be one step closer to constructing a curriculum that prepares students for whatever situations they might face in the future.

Understand how learners use knowledge in life after graduation Learn strategies for teaching critical thinking and addressing big questions Identify top priorities when it comes to disciplines and content areas Gain curriculum design skills that make the most of learning across the years of education Future Wise presents a brand new framework for thinking about education.

by Thomas D. Williams Christopher G. Worley Edward E. Lawler III

A research-based approach to achieving long-term profitability in business What does it take to guarantee success and profitability over time? Authors Christopher G. Worley, a senior research scientist, Thomas D. Williams, an executive advisor, and Edward E. Lawler III, one of the country's leading management experts, set out to find the answer. In The Agility Factor: Building Adaptable Organizations for Superior Performance the authors reveal the factors that drive long-term profitability based on the practices of successful companies that have consistently outperformed their peers.

Agility gives organizations the ability to adapt to fluctuations in the environment, test possible responses, and implement changes quickly. This book offers specific, research-based case studies to help organizational leaders use agility to achieve sustained profitability and performance while also becoming more adaptable to a changing marketplace. For executives, leaders, consultants, board members and all those responsible for the long-term health of organizations, this insightful guide outlines: The components of agility for business organizations How to successfully build agility within an organization How agility has its foundation in good management practices How to use agility to gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace

Take Control of iCloud

by Joe Kissell

You'll also learn how to re-download previously purchased items, and you'll read about how to start using Apple's optional, $25-per-year iTunes Match music service. iCloud Backup: Find out what data on your iOS device backs up, how to handle your backup, and--most importantly--how to restore your backup after a problem! Photo Stream: Having all your recent photos appear on all your devices sounds great, but there are gotchas. Joe explains how the 1,000-photo and 30-day limits work, as well as what's necessary to get a truly embarrassing photo out of your Photo Stream. Documents in the Cloud: Start changing your habits and expectations as your documents begin living in the cloud and within apps instead of on a local disk. But beware, since Documents in the Cloud isn't always seamless, with both manual effort required and data loss possible at the moment. Calendar and Contacts: Find directions for working with iCloud's Calendar and Contacts Web applications, along with pointers on the relatively few ways they differ from the Mac's iCal and Address Book and from iOS 5's Calendar and Contacts apps. Learn how to handle invitations to calendar events, plus get guidance on how reminders work within iCloud's calendaring system.

Find My...: Learn how to use Find My iPhone/iPad/iPod touch/Mac to locate a device that's gone missing, and get an overview of how you can keep track of friends and family with the new Find My Friends iOS app. Back to My Mac: With Back to My Mac, you can connect to your Mac at home or the office over the Internet and use both file sharing and screen sharing just as though you were on the same network. Joe explains the basics. Read this book to learn the answers to questions such as: What are iCloud's primary features? How do I set up iCloud-based calendar and contact syncing on my iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch? How do I share calendars with people who are not using iCloud? How quickly should I expect iCloud to sync my data? How do I configure my email software to use my iCloud email address? How do I add files to my Photo Stream from Windows? How can I configure my AirPort Extreme to work with Back to My Mac? What should I expect iTunes to do immediately after I turn on iTunes Match? in Web Galleries and files in iDisk, and what alternatives you can use to replace that functionality. What to do if you have multiple Apple IDs, shared Apple IDs, a MobileMe Family Pack, or a non-email Apple ID, and how to associate your primary email address with the desired Apple ID. The best ways to replicate MobileMe-based group calendar sharing in iCloud, especially if not everyone you share with can upgrade to iCloud.

  • Bookshare Web Reader - a customized reading tool for Bookshare members offering all the features of DAISY with a single click of the "Read Now" link.
  • DAISY (Digital Accessible Information System) - a digital book file format. DAISY books from Bookshare are DAISY 3.0 text files that work with just about every type of access technology that reads text. Books that contain images will have the download option of ‘DAISY Text with Images’.
  • BRF (Braille Refreshable Format) - digital Braille for use with refreshable Braille devices and Braille embossers.
  • MP3 (Mpeg audio layer 3) - Provides audio only with no text. These books are created with a text-to-speech engine and spoken by Kendra, a high quality synthetic voice from Ivona. Any device that supports MP3 playback is compatible.
  • DAISY Audio - Similar to the Daisy 3.0 option above; however, this option uses MP3 files created with our text-to-speech engine that utilizes Ivona's Kendra voice. This format will work with Daisy Audio compatible players such as Victor Reader Stream and Read2Go.
