The book's Community Readiness Model provides vital context for successful coalition building between youth, families, and community entities (e.g., schools, civic leaders, police) in reducing alcohol risk factors and promoting healthier choices.

Imagine the scenario where a newly appointed Deputy Headteacher in charge of Curriculum is suddenly asked questions like 'How many RJ45 sockets woquld you like in your new classroom? What type of cabling would you like? Cat 4 or 5? Add this to the relentless drive to raise standards as well as organising the timetable, teaching, doing break duty and offering a friendly ear to staff - you get the picture. This is the story of a community placed in an enviable position of receiving funding to build a new campus and the technology to transform learning. What is discovered very early on, is that no one had considered the human impact of such a project. This book seeks to do exactly that. The process of community engagement is addressed as well as the psychology of human behaviours that emerge in such a context. Written through the perspective of a senior leader, with many amusing and bizarre stories, the book describes how the struggle and effort required to keep sound educational principles at the heart of a project is worth it. What came out of the process was a building that had a variety of learning spaces, fully trained staff, modern ICT and a bespoke year 7 transition curriculum. It was the only school building in the country to be delivered on time, within budget, with a ground breaking CPD programme. This is not to say that everything went smoothly. There was a lot of pain along the way, and many lessons learned about how to manage change. Perhaps more significantly, 'Where will I do my pineapples?' is about people and the potential to change millions of lives. We should start with consideration of human needs and end with it.

Ecology of Learning Earthscan

Inne 1

Your house is flooded by a rain-swollen river. What do you learn from this experience? Do you shrug your shoulders and call your insurer? Or do you choose to learn about climate change, switch to renewable energy and lobby politicians? This book is a groundbreaking examination of how learning in everyday environments - business, work, home, community life - is key to improving society and achieving sustainability. It is ideal for educators, teachers, corporate trainers and consultants working to integrate environmental education, sustainability and innovation in non-traditional learning situations. How can we understand and achieve sustainability? How can we re-school society towards sustainability? Throughout life we learn, we develop meanings and connections, and we act. This book explores the possibilities for developing a sustainable society through 'lifelong learning' - that is, learning that happens in everyday environments and activities as diverse as shopping, community, 'edutainment', information and communication technology, the internet, broadcasting, people's experience of place and space, green building, social networks and consumer culture. Drawing on a range of sociological, anthropological and educational studies as well as new research "The Ecology of Learning" provides a broad trans-disciplinary understanding of the topic. The coverage is impressive with an accessible but informed engagement with both theory and practice and a wide range of examples. The voices, stories and experiences of many people are used to illustrate the ways people may reshape our understanding of learning and sustainability.

Superintendents hold a significant position in school systems. In serving the school board, community, staff and students simultaneously, a superintendent's role is dynamic and multifaceted. In realizing that the stability of a school system is set by the guidance of the superintendent, the need to attract quality personnel is apparent. However, did you know that the average tenure of a superintendent is less than five years (AASA)? With such fluctuation, school districts are consistently facing change. And although change can be righteous in some instances, variations in leadership can cause distress and anxiety for those who look to deliver upon a stable mission and vision.
