I am leery about saying too much about these two, brief works of fiction, as sometimes authors cloud the interpretation of their works. So, feel free to read this after you've read the stories, or not at all. But I did want to say a couple things about why these two pieces were packaged together.Yes, one is a coming of age story that tackles bullying, racism, sex and the way we must fight our way through the world. (Judy Blume said she had trouble finding "honest stories" when she was a kid and that adults were always "keeping secrets." Well said!) The other is a near science fiction piece on drugs, machines, prison planets and the possible return of wild nature. Yet, in both stories, the characters are involved in turf wars despite our vast planet.While these two tales may seem fantastical, there is great realism to both. Just a month ago, President Trump ordered the assassination of Iranian General Suleimani by drone. It's not a sci-fi plot; we already send machines to kill people. The General's daughter took to the streets with masses of protesters radicalized forever. Then, Iran's military shot down a Ukrainian passenger flight, thinking it was a U.S. missile, killing hundreds. Regarding wartime drugs, PBS ran a documentary on the use of Pervitin and Isophan by the Nazis in WWII. (War and drugs could be considered a historical theme rather than futuristic.) Racism continues today in local communities and still drives many foreign wars. We guard oil worldwide while ignoring genocide in Syria.Our visions of the future often become reality or warnings of the path we're on. Can we learn to accept each other? Must we continue our turf wars on this vast planet? Will environmental cancers continue to climb, and will technology be both the cause and cure? Will technology distract or help us to focus? Is surveillance helping us to catch criminals while also leading to mass incarceration? These are open questions posed in this collision of teen and science fiction.

While most of her peers were obsessed with their iPhones, Instagramming and Snapchatting their lives, and glued to streaming TV, 19-year-old Amy Crouch was growing up with minimal technology. In My Tech-Wise Life, she and her father, Andy Crouch, share how intentional and controlled use of modern devices, apps, and services has helped her avoid many of the negative experiences of her peers and cultivate positive experiences interacting with the real world. With writing that connects on a teen-to-teen level, Amy and Andy unpack tech temptations--such as the temptation to distract ourselves from any potentially boring or awkward situation, or to stay up-to-date with every notification and trend--and then offer antidotes that lead to more patience, wisdom, honesty, and wonder in life. If you're in high school or college and devices and social media are affecting your friendships and family life, your sense of self-worth, or even how well you think you know yourself, this book will help you reevaluate your relationship with technology--and renew your relationship with the world around you.

What do new technologies and new forms of communication mean for young children growing up in the 21st century? How are they shaping the mindsets, identities and practices which impact their lives at home and at school? This book explores the intersection of technology and critical literacy, specifically addressing what ICTs afford critical literacy work with young children between ages three to eight. Inviting readers to enter classrooms where both technology and critical literacies are woven into childhood curricula and teaching, it brings together literacy, social studies, and science in critical and integrated ways. Real-world stories show the sights and sounds of children engaged with technology in the classroom and beyond. Concise but comprehensive, the text provides strategies, theoretical frameworks, demonstrations of practice, and resources for teachers. Pedagogical features in each chapter engage readers in making connections to their own teaching situations. NCATE standards for including technology as an essential part of teacher education programs are addressed. While acknowledging how individual children employ ICT, the focus is on how new technologies can be positioned in early childhood learning communities as tools for engaging in more meaningful, authentic, and interesting learning.

Written by an international expert on the effects of media on children, The Death of Childhood provides a fascinating—and sobering—look at what it means to grow up in America today. Following in the footsteps of Neil Postman, Marie Winn, and Mary Pipher, this riveting and heart-breaking book is an obituary to childhood, exploring its origins and tracing its progress to what could be its bitter end in the early 21st century—if we don’t act now to resuscitate it. No longer are we raising children in the idyllic world that many of today’s grandparents and parents remember—a world filled with kick-the-can, unsupervised bike adventures and dog-walking, and the freedom to explore. Now, thanks to the Internet, new technology, and social networking, the complexion of childhood has changed and there are no adult “secrets” anymore—the answer to every question exists a fingertip’s reach away in cyberspace. It’s not just technology and media that are changing, childhood is also suffering the effects of underfunded schools, inattentive parents, a plethora of guns, and a hostile society. Despite all of that, this book shows that there is hope, and offers solutions to restore the charm and innocence of childhood.

Mathematicians, engineers, and physical scientists discuss how the first two years of a core college mathematics program should change over the next five to ten years to meet the mathematical needs of partner disciplines and society's needs arising from globalization and the information age. They examine issues related to goals and content, anticipated advances in technology, and new instructional techniques, and make recommendations for future course designs that emphasize modeling, inquiry, and conceptual understanding. Arney is dean of the School of Mathematics and Sciences at the College of Saint Rose. Small is on the faculty of the Department of Mathematics at the United States Military Academy.
