Swarovski Pledges 300,000 Pounds to the BFC Education Foundation

STUDENT AID: Swarovski has pledged 300,000 pounds to the BFC Education Foundation, a charity that supports fashion students who are studying for bachelor- and master-of-arts degrees at U.K. universities, the British Fashion Council said Thursday.
Nadja Swarovski, member of the Swarovski Executive Board, said investing in the next generation of talent is essential and is a part of the company’s ethos.
“Young designers are the heartbeat of our business, and it’s up to all of us to foster and champion their visions to keep our industry thriving,” said Swarovski.
“Our mission aligns brilliantly with the British Fashion Council and The Fashion Awards, as these awards are both a celebration of the best in global fashion, and a vital platform to raise funds for the BFC’s Education Foundation.”
The Fashion Awards, formerly known as the British Fashion Awards, are held in association with Swarovski, and will take place on Dec. 4 at Royal Albert Hall.
The event, which honors companies, brands and designers, is the main fundraiser for the BFC Education Foundation.

Dear ‘SNL,’ Please Let Christine Baranski Play Education Secretary Betsy DeVos

If there’s a silver lining to be found in Trump’s America, it’s legendary character actresses offering up their talents to parody every last member of his cabinet on “Saturday Night Live.”

Following reports that President Donald Trump took issue with a woman impersonating his White House press secretary on the show last weekend, Christine Baranski has now volunteered to play Trump’s contentious confirmed pick for Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos.

“It would seem somewhat logical — we have that strong jawline, don’t we?” she told Vanity Fair. “I can play people with whom I drastically disagree. The sketches have been unbelievable all through the election, and the post-election. So yeah, we could have a revolving door of people playing the cabinet members and all.”

Baranski is the latest actor to pitch an appearance on “Saturday Night Live” this season, following Melissa McCarthy’s celebrated cameo as Sean Spicer. Rosie O’Donnell has gone on record saying that she is willing to play Trump’s right-hand-man, Steve Bannon, while Trump supporter Billy Baldwin wants to join his brother Alec on the late-night sketch show as Eric Trump. 

Until Baranski makes her way to Studio 8H, however, she’ll be resisting Trump in a different manner as Diane Lockhart every week on CBS’ “The Good Wife” spinoff, “The Good Fight.” The premiere episode, which airs on CBS All Access Feb. 19, begins with the famously pro-Hillary Clinton Diane watching Trump’s inauguration in shock. 

“She’s — what’s the British word? — gobsmacked,” Baranski said. “Robert King was very specific about how he wanted me to play it. He kept saying, ‘You’re stunned. Now go ahead, open your mouth. You’re stunned, Christine — open your mouth even wider.” This back-and-forth continued until Baranski felt she was going too far: “I thought, ‘Oh, this is too broad.’ [But] I must tell you, as I was watching many of the press conferences, I was like [that]. I think a lot of people will relate to this gobsmacked look.”

�Schools of Tomorrow�, Schools of Today: What Happened to Progressive Education (History of Schools and Schooling, V. 8)


�Schools of Tomorrow,� Schools of Today documents some of the child-centered progressive schools founded in the first half of the twentieth century and provides histories of some more contemporary examples of progressive practices. Part I discusses seven progressive schools founded in the first part of the twentieth century (Francis W. Parker; Organic; Park; City and Country; Lincoln; Dalton; Arthurdale), tracing them from their beginnings to the present, or until their regrettable demises. Part II examines four more contemporary schools (Butterfield; Free Union Country; Urban Academy; W. Haywood Burns), showing how progressive practices gained momentum from the 1960s onward. As a volume in the History of Schools and Schooling series, this book seeks to look to the past for what it can teach us today. The lessons from the past about what has happened to progressive education hopefully will inform contemporary debates.

Youth and Higher Education in Africa. The Cases of Cameroon, South Africa, Eritrea and Zimbabwe

Youth and Higher Education in Africa. The Cases of Cameroon, South Africa, Eritrea and Zimbabwe


Student activism in Africa, at least since the early 1990s, has been preoccupied with popular struggles for democracy in both their respective countries and institutions of higher learning. The changing socio-economic and political conditions in many African countries, characterized by the decline in economic growth and the introduction of multi-party politics, among several other factors, have had different impact on students and student political organizations in African universities. This book recounts the responses of students to these changes in their attempt to negotiate better living and studying conditions. The four case studies contained in the book – Cameroon, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Eritrea – clearly reveal the very important aspects of the situation in which African students find themselves in many countries, and underscores the need to understand the character and development of higher education on the continent. Ministries of Higher Education, Vice Chancellors, Deans of Students, Student Unions and parents will find this book very useful in terms of understanding the tensions that often arise at institutions of higher learning and why solutions seem to be elusive.

Happiness, Higher Education and the Pillars of Life

2015-08-20-1440090947-7969865-MauraatBostonCollege.jpg

Posing at my alma mater Boston College

Will an Ivy League degree — or even your next advanced degree — bring you happiness, satisfaction and personal success?

I’m not sure if two recent trips around the northeast or August back-to-school fever prompted this question that beckoned a response.

Surprisingly, within a 10-day time span, I’d visited over a dozen university campuses to query students, observe campus cultures and cultivate something of an answer.

I’ve always venerated higher thought and education played a significant role in my upbringing. So did the pursuit of happiness. At times, my desire for happiness conflicted with social beliefs and educational expectations.

For example, in their effort to have me follow in my grandfather’s footsteps as an attorney, my parents sent me to a private prep school for girls. The education was supposed to be better than our public high school, but the constricting atmosphere dampened my spirit. I excelled in academics but also turned anorexic.

A return to public high school buoyed me and I regained energy as well as girth.

By the time I was college bound, the need for an appealing culture was as important to me as access to a quality education. Stepping onto the grounds of Boston College during a campus visit, I knew I’d found a welcome home. I sensed a place where I could grow intellectually while remaining pleasantly grounded.

However, law school proved a different experience. Trying to please parents whose professional goal for me had never changed, I moved back to New Jersey after graduation and trudged into my next academic chapter.

My LSATs were decent. I’d been accepted to several law schools in New York but instinctively knew that commuting via public transportation during inclement weather would prove an easy deterrent to attendance. I opted instead for Seton Hall Law School in Newark, a mere 12-minute drive from home.

Our L1 class was intimate. I marveled at several fellow classmates who carried passionate desires for a future in law. Two others who spent several post-graduate years gaining business and life experience knew exactly why they were pursuing a J.D. too.

For me, there was neither passion nor sufficient life experience. I perceived no joy spending the majority of my adult years practicing law. I exited mid-stream and never looked back.

While the loss to my family was palpable, I could no longer carry the excess weight. I was purposed to find my own life calling and could no longer support the expectations of others. The decision to leave was daunting. However, the rewards of developing my own talents and paving my own path to professional success proved golden.

I marveled at this most recent university pilgrimage which spanned two recent trips up north.

2015-08-20-1440091060-4904162-MauraatSetonHallLawSchool.jpg

Smiling during my recent return to Seton Hall School of Law

A trip to New England with my husband for his New England Basketball Hall of Fame induction gave us a few days for tooling around the region by car. While in Connecticut, we toured the campuses of Yale, Trinity College and Quinnipiac University .

A visit to Providence, Rhode Island brought us to College Hill for Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design. Checking out the resort town of Newport, I stumbled upon Salve Regina University, uniquely housed within a waterfront mansion.

Onward to Massachusetts, we toured our alma mater Boston College and College of the Holy Cross, another Jesuit institution and BC rival from our era.

As my husband flew back to Florida, I boarded a bus to New York. A few days in Newark, NJ brought me together with old friends and my first return to Seton Hall Law School since my departure.

The next day, a friend pursuing her PhD picked me up for lunch and brought me to Seton Hall’s main campus where she’s currently matriculating. We toured the quiet grounds and investigated Seton Hall’s Graduate School of Diplomacy.

My final stops on the university circuit arrived while spending time with our Brooklyn-based daughter. A lengthy summer walk through Manhattan brought me to the grounds of Columbia University and, finally, to Fordham Law.

Each collegiate venue delivered its own culture and sense of place. I appreciated every school’s unique strengths and assets. But rather than checking out admissions statistics, tuition costs or the latest rankings from U.S. News & World Report, I was on a different kind of journey.

I wanted to investigate those on a path of personal happiness and needed to chat with those heading toward career and life satisfaction.

Not surprisingly, I unearthed no correlation between happiness and the more rarefied universities. Neither did I find a lack of expectation or joy at some of the lesser known institutions.

Instead, I discovered that stressed, anxious and sometimes near panic-stricken students were those feeling compelled to attain goals held in esteem by others — rather than themselves.

Conversely, the confident and energized students were those whose university provided them with the conduit to do what they had a personal passion for and engage with what they truly loved.

While at Columbia, I was inspired to ask about the pillars of our lives. The question is as pertinent for the academic as it is for anyone on a path toward life purpose and satisfaction.

A young coed I chatted with captured my reflective question on video. I hope you pause to watch it and ask yourself this question, too.

You may be studying as an undergrad, a graduate student or even as a life long learner.

Whatever your goals, may you find your pursuits of higher learning helping you to raise the unique — and satisfying — pillars of your life!

Coral Reefs – Australian Sites for Learning Environmental Education

Coral Reefs – Australian Sites for Learning Environmental Education


Coral reefs are critical for biodiversity, food habitats and as tourist destinations, but they are in serious decline around the world. Humans are a major cause of this problem. Here we explore high school students’ educational reef experiences with respect to specific learning outcomes. Students were surveyed and interviewed as they were trained in coral reef ecology and monitoring in both the classroom and at various sites in the Great Barrier Reef. The Three A’s of Coastal and Marine Studies (Marine Education Society of Australasia) are awareness, attitudes and action. This presupposes a learning situation where a gain in knowledge (awareness) will lead to a change in attitude, and thereby improve positive personal actions toward marine environments. This research analyses the link between the knowledge-attitude-action variables in relation to the effect of direct reef experience. This work addressed the question of proximal relations between humans and coral reefs. It brought together literature and techniques from varying disciplines to generate statistical findings, while student accounts confirmed the learning value of structured activities underwater as part of reef trips.

Arts Education: Learning How to See

2015-01-14-photo.JPG
I grew up as a creative person in a small, industrial, Midwestern community. It’s a region not unlike many others in the country, where practical vocations and athletic prowess are encouraged and rewarded — leaving little room for (and even less understanding of) artistic pursuits. And yet, by some grand stroke of luck, that salt-of-the-earth, ag-centric town also had numerous exceptional creative institutions (thanks in part to the neighboring university). Those local artistic outlets, and the education they afforded, gave me the physical and mental space not only to distract myself from the farms and football games — but to reimagine my life.

Jessica Hoffman Davis, founder of the Arts in Education program at Harvard, argues that art teaches us “how to see” and imagine: “The human ability to imagine is inborn, but this precious capacity is fragile — ready to nurture or ignore throughout our children’s education.”

Davis goes on to identify 10 benefits of arts education, emphasizing that arts education transforms everyone it touches, not only those who become professional artists, by instilling imagination and autonomy, expression and empathy, interpretation and respect, inquiry and reflection, engagement and responsibility. The value of STEM subjects, she points out, does not make them more valuable than the less quantifiable gifts of arts education.

I escaped the cornfields to pursue more intense arts education at Interlochen Arts Academy, then, after college, I joined the Peace Corps. I had a very idealistic vision of how my service would change the world (I was 22, after all). Like all volunteers, I was assigned to an economically impoverished community. Electricity and water were intermittent, and advanced education and exposure to high art was something reserved for the wealthy. With so many basic unmet needs, it’s not hard to understand why my vision for an arts education program was rejected by the Peace Corps. I therefore tried to assimilate into the prescribed tasks appointed to me — but within a few weeks, my attention was diverted.

Not far from my home, there was a little zinc-roofed, wooden shack that housed the local “music school.” Everyday, children and young adults would come to the one-room school to play half-broken, donated instruments. But the scene wasn’t quaint — it was shocking: The music, by any standards, was incredible. The sounds they were able to produce using tattered tools was alive and exuberant in an otherwise desolate environment. I knew I had to get involved.

The school also had a piano — but no teacher. I played, and briefly taught lessons in high school, so I told the director to send me a few of the students, thinking I’d teach two or three in my spare time. Over 20 students showed up to the first meeting, with more students begging to be let in. We established weekly lesson times and I solicited sheet music from my former instructor and keyboard donations from wealthy local expats. The students not only never missed a lesson, they practiced on their keyboards (sometimes without electricity, and therefore without sound) for hours each day. Extended families and neighbors spilled out of the tiny space during our regular concert series. I solicited more money for a few of the truly exceptional students to study at the music conservatory several hours away — requiring them to come back and serve as music educators in their hometown to repay their debt and pass on the gift. The program became the pride of the students and evolved into a permanent fixture in the community.

When I look at Davis’s list of the virtues of arts education, I see the faces of those students. Autonomy, respect, responsibility, engagement, inquiry — it’s not just that they picked up a skill and honed a craft, but that these invaluable attributes and lessons came to permeate their lives and their vision of themselves. Arts education ignited their imagination and allowed them see themselves and the world they inhabit differently. And no standardized test can adequately measure the profundity of that legacy.

The Modern Practice of Adult Education

The Modern Practice of Adult Education


Briton challenges the dominant depoliticized vision of adult education, calling into question the modernist tenets and moral integrity of contemporary adult education practice. By examining his own struggle to escape the confines of modernist thought, the author delivers a succinct yet decisive critique of modern educational practice and challenges educators to reconceptualize their field of endeavor as a postmodern pedagogy of engagement. In refusing to deny its conjectural foundations, to mask its tenuous structure, or to defend its precarious integrity, the book assumes a form that distinguishes it markedly from its modernist counterparts. In favoring commentary over empirical evidence, a multiplicity of voices over a prescriptive narrative, the development of an ethical attitude toward practice over formulaic prescriptions for practice, and inter- over intra-disciplinary sources to substantiate its claims, this work calls into question a whole range of modernist predilections. By repeatedly breaching the narrowly prescribed parameters of adult education’s orthodoxy and constantly promoting reflective inquiry, this book reveals how different, yet equally valid, forms of evidence can be drawn upon to develop an ethical postmodern perspective that calls the modern instrumental practice of adult education into question.

A College Education Might Be The Thing Standing Between You And Marriage

Blame the drop in marriage rates on declining American values, and you may be ignoring what often provides the push for couples to walk down the aisle: education.

That’s what Andrew Cherlin, a Johns Hopkins sociologist, argues in his new book Labor’s Love Lost. Cherlin told The Huffington Post that the move away from marriage has to do with the fact that those without a four-year college education face fewer job options and less financial stability, which causes them to delay marriage or eschew it altogether. A disregard of morals isn’t the culprit here.

And it’s not a subconscious choice: 34 percent of young adults cited financial security as the reason they weren’t currently married, according to a recent Pew Research Center poll.

Young adults with only a high school diploma aren’t earning as much as their parents and grandparents.

Between 1979 and 2007, young male high school graduates saw their real earnings fall by about 30 percent. Unlike their mid-century predecessors, men in this moderately educated group can’t expect to be as financially stable as their parents or grandparents, so they end up putting off marriage or avoiding it completely.

In 2013, marriage rates hit an unprecedented low, bottoming out at 50.3 percent. Compare that to 1950, when 82 percent of non-widowed women between the ages of 18 and 64 were married, and it’s hard to ignore the shift.

Cherlin ties this change to the “slow-motion collapse” of what we used to call the “working class” or “blue collar” family. Forty or 50 years ago, these families took on mid-level jobs that didn’t require higher schooling, so men were able to make enough to support a wife and kids. Many of those jobs have been lost with modern technology. (It’s worth noting that mid-century women weren’t given opportunities to be household breadwinners and often relied on husbands for economic stability.)

Without financial security, couples are taking increasingly complex relationship paths in lieu of marriage.

Nowadays, young men and women without college degrees are facing dimmer job prospects than ever, so they’re avoiding marriage. Without a stable income, it’s not advantageous for either partner — man or woman — to enter into a seemingly permanent union.

“More and more of the moderately educated young adults, those without college degrees, are having kids in living-together relationships, often ending those relationships after a couple of years, starting another one, perhaps having a kid in another relationship and building unstable, complex families,” he said.

Of course, this marriage gap wouldn’t have happened if we didn’t shift our norms since mid-century America. It’s now more acceptable and common for couples to cohabit and have children before marriage. But the big difference between college grads and those without a degree is that cohabiting college grads tend to be more economically stable and make it to the altar before they have children, while the less educated are having children before marriage and then breaking up.

Closing the marriage gap may involve putting more folks without college degrees on the path to stable, mid-level jobs.

It’s this “interaction effect between a changing economy and changing attitudes,” as Cherlin put it, that he argues has led to the marriage gap.

The remedies? Cherlin said that more education is needed — not in the form of four-year college degrees, but vocational education at community colleges that can put young adults on the path to entering the few mid-level jobs that are left. He also said that labor market interventions, like strengthening unions and increasing the minimum wage, might bring the moderately-educated closer to their college graduate counterparts when it comes to marriage.

“As far as I can tell, a college degree is really the closest thing we have to a class boundary in the US,” Cherlin said. “Certainly in terms of family life.”

The Church-State Debate: Religion, Education and the Establishment Clause in Post War America

The Church-State Debate: Religion, Education and the Establishment Clause in Post War America


The Establishment Clause of the First Amendment governs the relationship between the institutions of the church and those of the state; the Supreme Court, as arbiter of the Constitution, has, since 1947, sought to determine where the line between the two should be drawn. This book shows how and why the Court drew the line in particular cases and how and why the lines that were drawn by the Court had an impact on the relationship between institutions of government and the Church, shaping US politics and society. Using the Supreme Court’s cases as a framework, the book shows how the constitutional underpinnings of church-state debates shaped the political, economic, and social debate on the issue, and explores broader debates about religion and American society. This book maintains that the Court cases cannot be understood separately from the context from which they arose and that legal factors are only part of a broader picture for a historical understanding of the Court and Establishment Clause cases.

The Global Search for Education: Shepherd Sound

2014-02-27-cmrubinworldleadshepherdschool3500.jpg

“Musicians are all human, that is, we all have issues and things we want to improve but we also have the same goal, and that is to be the best we can be at what we do.”

– Niccolo Muti

World-renowned violinist, Cho-Liang Lin, Professor of Violin at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, urges all young musicians “to get up in front of people and perform.”

And The Shepherd School Orchestra did – magnificently! Led by their charismatic conductor, Larry Rachleff, the orchestra made its Carnegie Hall debut Tuesday evening, February 18 with energy, artistry and a very distinctive Shepherd sound.

Founded in 1975, The Shepherd School of Music in Houston is widely recognized as one of the nation’s most elite music institutions. The school emphasizes a performance-based curriculum. “I think what’s unique about the Shepherd School is that musicians are given a lot of opportunities to learn in front of an audience and that’s very important when it comes to building self-confidence,” explains student violinist Niccolo Muti.

The performance at Carnegie Hall kicked off with Hector Berlioz’ Le Corsaire followed by American Composer Christopher Rouse’s Violin Concerto featuring a remarkable solo performance by Cho-Liang Lin. The score to this complex and beautiful work was actually composed for Cho-Liang Lin in 1991. The principal orchestral work of the evening was Bela Bartok’s magnificent Concerto for Orchestra featuring numerous solos from the ensemble, giving many of the 103 extraordinarily gifted young musicians the opportunity to shine.

Beyond the dream of all accomplished musicians, which is to perform in prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, there are the numerous additional benefits and skills that a music education at this level of the art form can offer students. “Performers achieve incredible levels of coordination and dexterity while simultaneously channeling the deepest emotional expressions of the music. How can this not be of benefit to all studies,” observes professional artist and faculty member, Jon Kimura Parker.

I had the opportunity to chat further with Cho-Liang Lin and Jon Kimura Parker along with students Madeleine Doyon-Robitaille (trombonist), Titus Underwood (oboist), Anatasia Sukhopara (violinist) and Niccolo Muti (violinist).

“Passion for something one holds dear is very important. Beethoven, Tom Edison, Steve Jobs, Michelangelo, Goethe, Jonas Salk, and Lincoln all had passion. Believe in something one loves and pursue that something to the fullest.” – Cho-Liang Lin

You are both veterans of the international concert stage as well as committed educators. What do you think are the most important skills that a young artist must have to be successful in the professional world of music today?

Cho-Liang Lin: Classical music is such an exacting discipline. It takes years of practicing, single-minded training and hours of lessons. Then one enters the real world where competition is stiff and judgment of one’s talent and thus future career can be decided in one single performance or audition. Therefore, apart from talent, a young artist must have the ability to convey artistry, emotion and a real sense of beauty to the audience. This requires natural ability, confidence, clear-minded thinking and lots of experience. By experience, I mean knowing what to do on stage under pressure. This cannot be learned in a practice room. It must be learned by being on stage in front of an audience.

Jon Kimura Parker: I believe that young artists have to understand themselves and to be able to communicate effectively. Forty years ago, it was not remarkable to ask of our audience that they would disconnect from the external world and focus on a 40-minute work. Nowadays, we are stretching the attention span of many. I love to see a young artist be able to engage people around them; to inspire others to discover the incredible joy of great music.

What real world life skills do you believe an educated musician can use in other pursuits?

Cho-Liang Lin: In a word: Passion. I am passionate about music. Nothing is more rewarding than to listen or play a great work. Passion for something one holds dear is very important. Beethoven, Tom Edison, Steve Jobs, Michelangelo, Goethe, Jonas Salk, and Lincoln all had passion. Believe in something one loves and pursue that something to the fullest.

Jon Kimura Parker: Musicians aren’t just creating music; they are also great listeners. An educated musician typically has a highly developed sense of the beauty of mathematics and structure, an endless curiosity, and a deep connection with the humanities. These skills have taken musicians in many different directions.

“An educated musician typically has a highly developed sense of the beauty of mathematics and structure, an endless curiosity, and a deep connection with the humanities.” – Jon Kimura Parker

What real world life skills (other than music) did you gain from your education at the Shepherd School of Music? Do you think music helped you with your other academic studies at Rice?

Madeleine Doyon-Robitaille: Absolutely! Learning music gives you a lot of skills that are precious in life. One important example is discipline! To learn an instrument requires constant effort. You learn that with perseverance you can achieve your dream. And learning to persevere applies to everything in life.

Anastasia Sukhopara: I think gratitude and discipline are some of the most important life skills. The dedication to music and to the highest standards of excellence that are required at the Shepherd School are a priceless life lesson. Settling for nothing but the best is really a critical skill, in music and life alike.

Titus Underwood: I have gained a deeper appreciation for artistry among my young colleagues.

Niccolo Muti: You can be as passionate as you want to be about something but if you don’t put in the work it won’t help you succeed.

“With perseverance you can achieve your dream. And learning to persevere applies to everything in life.” – Madeleine Doyon-Robitaille

So, what advice would you give to freshman musicians coming to the Shepherd School of Music?

Madeleine Doyon-Robitaille: Take every opportunity you can to learn and push yourself farther in your musical development! Shepherd school is such a rich musical environment. There are incredible faculty, talented students and so many opportunities. It’s the best time and the best environment to improve yourself and become a better musician!

Titus Underwood: Stay confident in your abilities but always humble in your ethics.

Anastasia Sukhopara: Know what you want, work hard and be patient!

Niccolo Muti: You are going to get a lot of opportunities to perform at the Shepherd School and performance experience is the most important thing when it comes to building self-confidence.

A lot of professional musicians both teach and perform at your school – what’s it like to be learning from artists/teachers such as Renee Fleming, Jon Kimura Parker and Cho-Liang Lin?

Madeleine Doyon-Robitaille: It’s fantastic that Shepherd School gives us these opportunities. It’s been an incredible experience to have the chance to play for those professional musicians! It’s always been really inspiring even when it was not my specific instrument.

Niccolo Muti: Renee Fleming gave a master class at the Shepherd School. She told us that she is still constantly learning and working at her craft. It made me realize that musicians are all human, that is, we all have issues and things we want to improve but we also have the same goal, and that is to be the best we can be at what we do.

History of Computing in Education: Ifip 18th World Computer Conigress Tc3 / Tc9 1st Conference on the History of Computing in Education 22 – 27 August 2004 Toulouse, France

History of Computing in Education: Ifip 18th World Computer Conigress Tc3 / Tc9 1st Conference on the History of Computing in Education 22 – 27 August 2004 Toulouse, France


This book looks at the history of computing in education from two points of view as a history of the impact of computing on education over the past forty years and as the use of the history of computing as a pedagogical tool in computing education. These two intertwined views look back at computer education and the ways in which organizations have attempted to use computers to enhance teaching and learning from elementary education through university studies in several countries. Topics include: considerations of cybernetics and informatics; government sponsored open source software for school education; learning with the artificial sciences; technology leading to historic changes; ICT in Catalan schools; streams in the history of computer education in Australia; growth of computing technology for education in India; computing and education in the UK; evolution of e-inclusion for the disabled; educational hypermedia computing; keyboard training; studies of educational computing projects; and using computing history to enhance teaching. History of Computing in Education is unique in its topic, the field having not been the subject of extensive study in the past. While there have been several books on the history of computing, a study of the impact of computing on education is only now receiving due attention. This book derives from contributions made at the History of Computing in Education conference at the IFIP 18th World Computer Congress, held in August 2004 in Toulouse, France and sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP). Teachers, students, researchers, authors, and education developers should find this work as a welcome addition to their educational repertoire. It will also provide new dimensions of breadth and depth in the evolution of computing in education.
