At the heart of dialogue-based teaching as described in this book, is a conviction that learning takes place when students' curiosity and creativity are engaged through conversation and practical-aesthetic activity. By exploring seven cases, Dysthe, Bernhardt and Esbjorn demonstrate how experienced museum educators challenge groups of children and youth to explore a variety of topics, exchange views, and develop new perspectives. The museum educators in this book strive to connect with children's everyday life-worlds, as well as to draw out the multivoicedness that is latent in every group. The authors use seven teaching sequences from different art museums to reveal what dialogue-based teaching looks like in practice. They show how art and design is a springboard to engage students in dialogue, not only about art itself, but about subjects such as history, society, sustainability and identity. These case descriptions illuminate the power and process of dialogue-based education in the art museum and generate insights about learning that are relevant to any museum or classroom setting - in all subjects and at all levels.

Curriculum and Teaching Dialogue is the journal of the American Association of Teaching and Curriculum (AATC). An important historical event in the development of organizations dealing with the scholarly field of teaching and curriculum was the founding of the AATC on October 1, 1993. The members of the AATC believed that the time was long overdue to recognize teaching and curriculum as a basic field of scholarly study, to constitute a national learned society for the scholarly field of teaching and curriculum (teaching is the more inclusive concept; curriculum is an integral part of teachingthe "what to teach" aspect). Since it's founding AATC has produced scholarship in teaching and curriculum and serves the general public through its conferences, journals, and the interaction of its members. The purpose of the organization was originally defined in Article 1, Section 2 of the AATC Constitution: "To promote the scholarly study of teaching and curriculum; all analytical and interpretive approaches that are appropriate for the scholarly study of teaching and curriculum shall be encouraged." Curriculum and Teaching Dialogue seeks to fulfill that mission.

The theme of this book is Knowledge and Media in Learning Systems, and papers that explore the emerging roles of intelligent multimedia and distributed technologies as well as computer supported collaboration within that theme are included. The spread of topics is very wide encompassing both well- established areas such as student modelling as well as more novel topics such as distributed intelligent tutoring on the World Wide Web. Far from undermining the need to understand how learning and teaching interact, the newer media continue to emphasise the interdependence of these two processes. Collaboration and tools for collaboration are the major topics of interest. Understanding how human learners collaborate, how peer tutoring works and how the computer can play a useful role as either a more able of even a less able learning partner are all explored here.

Dialogue and Learning in Mathematics Education is concerned with communication in mathematics class-rooms. In a series of empirical studies of project work, we follow students' inquiry cooperation as well as students' obstructions to inquiry cooperation. Both are considered important for a theory of learning mathematics. Special attention is paid to the notions of `dialogue' and `critique'. A central idea is that `dialogue' supports `critical learning of mathematics'. The link between dialogue and critique is developed further by including the notions of `intention' and `reflection'. Thus a theory of learning mathematics is developed which is resonant with critical mathematics education.

The nature of technology has changed since Artificial Intelligence in Education (AIED) was conceptualised as a research community and Interactive Learning Environments were initially developed. Technology is smaller, more mobile, networked, pervasive and often ubiquitous as well as being provided by the standard desktop PC. This creates the potential for technology supported learning wherever and whenever learners need and want it. However, in order to take advantage of this potential for greater flexibility we need to understand and model learners and the contexts with which they interact in a manner that enables us to design, deploy and evaluate technology to most effectively support learning across multiple locations, subjects and times.

This volume in the NATO Special Programme on Advanced Educational Technology addresses fundamental principles in the design of a dialogue component in intelligent tutoring systems. The purpose of the book is to link fundamental issues of communication and interaction to the more restricted domain of instructional dialogue. The papers are grouped into parts on: theoretical issues in instructional dialogue; theory into practice - interaction in learning environments; natural dialogue and interaction theory; and feedback and control in human-machine communication. The book originates from a NATO Advanced Research Workshop held in Italy in 1992 and the authors are leading researchers in educational technology, dialogue research and user-interface design.

This book examines how educators conceptualize their profession and (re)construct their professional selves. Drawing on a narrative-based study, it reports research that follows closely five multilingual English language teacher educators teaching in a teacher education program at a large private university. It explores their learning and teaching experiences and how they attach meaning to these experiences, the (re)construction of their professional identity, their commitment to their profession, and the various factors that mediate these experiences and understandings by analyzing their narrative accounts. In this exploration, there is a particular focus on the nature of language, identity and culture in intercultural teacher education settings. Overall, the book demonstrates the complex, nuanced, and dynamic nature of professional learning and intercultural identity construction, involving multiple, sometimes competing, discourses of professionalism in ELT. The teacher educators’ professional learning narratives provide an insight into their “struggle for voice” (Britzman, 2003) in their immediate teaching and learning context, as well as internationally. Their struggle for a voice highlights the frictions, negotiations, and dialogues with the dominant western discourses of ELT professionalism that have often been imposed on them in their profession. In addition, their teaching and learning accounts emphasize the importance of revisiting, re-evaluating, and reimagining the teaching paradigm of ELT in this teaching setting in engaging with today’s globalized world. These accounts suggest a call for pedagogical and curriculum reform in ELT that takes into account learners’ linguistic and cultural identity, and that will enable them to use English as a language that mediates their identity work as national, international and intercultural selves. This book is about English language educators’ professional learning, and will be of interest to teacher candidates, teachers, and teacher educators who wish to extend their knowledge and understanding of the dynamicity and complexity of teachers’ learning through narratives of teaching.

Multiculturalism: A Shalom Motif for the Christian Community is an attempt to engage the Christian community on the ongoing discussion of cultural diversity and its implications for the church and the entire Christian community of the twenty-first century. Written for Christian schools and churches, this book confronts the fact that, for the Christian church in North America to remain vibrant and relevant in the twenty-first century, it must engage with the idea of multiculturalism and all other forms of diversity that now characterize the contemporary society. While the nature of this engagement will vary from case to case, cultural diversity must become a growing face of the church in America. This book uses a combination of philosophy, educational theories, and biblical theology to provide Christian educators and churches with a critical understanding of multiculturalism, as well as practical steps for engaging this issue within the Christian community.

Author: Roger C. Schank
The fourth in the Inside series, this volume includes four theses completed under the editor's direction at the Institute for the Learning Sciences at Northwestern University. This series bridges the gap between Schank's books introducing (for a popular audience) the theories behind his work in artificial intelligence (AI) and the many articles and books written by Schank and other AI researchers for their colleagues and students. The series will be of interest to graduate students in AI and professionals in other academic fields who seek the retraining necessary to join the AI effort or to understand it at the professional level. This volume elaborates the Case-Based Teaching Architecture. A central tenet of this architecture is the importance of acquiring cases, and being able to retrieve and use those cases to solve new problems. The theses address the problems of building case bases, indexing large amounts of data contained within those case bases, and retrieving information on a need-to-know basis. They also reflect the work of researchers at the Institute to design tools that enable software programs to be built more effectively and efficiently.

Intergroup dialogue promotes student engagement across cultural andsocial divides on college campuses through a face-to-face,interactive, and facilitated learning experience that bringstogether twelve to eighteen students from two or more socialidentity groups over a sustained period of time. Students inintergroup dialogue explore commonalities and differences; examinethe nature and impact of discrimination, power, and privilege; andfind ways of working together toward greater inclusion, equality,and social justice. Intergroup dialogue is offered as a cocurricular activity onsome campuses and as a course or part of a course on others. Thepractice of intergroup dialogue is considered a substantive andmeaningful avenue for preparing college graduates with theknowledge, commitment, and skills essential for living and workingin a diverse yet socially stratified society. The research evidencesupports the promise of intergroup dialogues to meet itseducational goals?consciousness raising, building relationshipsacross differences and conflicts, and strengthening individual andcollective capacities to promote social justice.

Leaders constantly rely upon power. In fact, leadership and power have so much in common that their definitions are often functionally identical. Every act of leadership is an act of power. Hence, the better we understand power, the better we understand leadership. What, then, are the consequences if, as scholars argue, different people understand power differently and often fundamentally misunderstand power? One consequence turns out to be the emergence of a number of ironies. Another consequence is the opportunity to understand leadership settings better through a careful, redeeming, synergistic look at power. To that end, this book first presents roughly sixty studied, power-related dynamics, and then takes a closer look at how these dynamics clarify leadership settings. Ultimately, this study seeks a better understanding of a particular leadership setting--the local church. Challenges distinct to this setting are explored in marked sections, while the book as a whole offers useful lenses through which to assess the challenges all leaders navigate.
