1-to-1 at Home: A Parent's Guide to School-Issued Laptops and Tablets
Author: Jason Brand
The media and technologies children love and use avidly every day at home need to be available in school – not just for greater engagement in the classroom (though that is likely to happen), but also so children can learn how to function effectively in the workplaces and communities of a digital age. They need the opportunities to practise the citizenship and literacies of digital environments as part of their F–12 education: they need schools outfitted with digital media and technologies. Managing the digital gadgets, gizmos and games that kids already own is often a challenge, and many parents find that a school-issued 1-to-1 device further disrupts an area in which there are already conflicts. 1-to-1 devices blur the lines between school and home, between work and play, between tool and toy. Many parents could use some help in setting boundaries. Topics discussed in 1-to-1 at Home include parental control, filtering and monitoring software; downloading media; video sites; social networks video games; video, voice and text chatting; and ergonomics and sleep. Written from the perspective of a family therapist who works to help families get to the heart of complicated matters, this guidebook addresses the home side of 1-to-1 programs. 1-to-1 at Home: A Parent’s Guide to School-Issued Laptops and Tablets provides the perspectives of other adults – educators and parents – who have addressed similar challenges.

Picture of the productA Parent's Guide to Online Safety
Author: Marje Monroe & Doug Fodeman
Try to keep up with today’s technology can be overwhelming. You probably feel like you’ll never understand the technology your child is using, especially when it seems to change every six months. The MySpace of yesterday becomes the Facebook of today. Children and teens love to explore new online gadgets, gimmicks, games and websites, and they often discover new and unexpected uses of these technologies. What’s a parent to do? Take a deep breath! Yes, the technology keeps changing, but the kids themselves stay pretty much the same. Much of what they do is not about the technology they are using. It’s about seeking attention, forming and sustaining relationships, taking risks and having fun. Parents have been dealing with these behaviours for centuries. Chapter topics include How Old Is Old Enough?; Important Conversations; Online Bullying; Kids, Privacy and Technology; Online Gaming; Social Networks Mobile Phones and Smartphones; and Teaching Your Child to Be Savvy. This revised Australian edition of A Parent’s Guide to Online Safety will help you identify the digital citizenship topics all parents should be aware of while providing advice on setting limits for your child.

Author - Emily Bouck

Assistive Technology by Emily C. Bouck presents a succinct, but comprehensive overview to assistive technology for students with disabilities. The book covers the range of disabilities from high-incidence or mild to low-incidence or severe disabilities as well as the range of ages from early childhood special education to transition and post-school life. In addition, this textbook utilizes the TPACK perspective - Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) - a framework that identifies the knowledge teachers need to teach effectively with technology. This framework emphasizes the consideration of the value of technology in light of pedagogy and curriculum as well as perspective repurposing - which involves taking everyday technology and using it for the additional purposes of assistive technology.
