This thoroughly researched guide provides capsule descriptions that help users quickly and easily find the right person at the right organization. The Washington Information Directory offers three easy ways to find information: by name, by organization, and through detailed subject indexes. The volume is topically organized, and within the taxonomic structure the relevant organizations are listed not only with contact information but with a brief paragraph describing what the organization (whether government or nongovernmental) does related to that topic. It is focused on Washington—an organization must have an office in Washington to be listed. It also includes dozens of resource boxes on particular topics and organization charts for federal agencies and NGOs. With more than 10,000 listing sand coverage of the new presidential administration, the 2017–2018 Edition features contact information for the following: • 115th Congress and federal agencies • Nongovernmental organizations • Policy groups, foundations, and institutions • Governors and other state officials • U.S. ambassadors and foreign diplomats • Congressional caucuses

Blockchain ermöglicht Peer-to-Peer-Transaktionen ohne jede Zwischenstelle wie eine Bank. Die Teilnehmer bleiben anonym und dennoch sind alle Transaktionen transparent und nachvollziehbar. Somit ist jeder Vorgang fälschungssicher. Dank Blockchain muss man sein Gegenüber nicht mehr kennen und ihm vertrauen – das Vertrauen wird durch das System als Ganzes hergestellt. Und digitale Währungen wie Bitcoins sind nur ein Anwendungsgebiet der Blockchain-Revolution. In der Blockchain kann jedes wichtige Dokument gespeichert werden: Urkunden von Universitäten, Geburts- und Heiratsurkunden und vieles mehr. Die Blockchain ist ein weltweites Register für alles. In diesem Buch zeigen die Autoren, wie sie eine fantastische neue Ära in den Bereichen Finanzen, Business, Gesundheitswesen, Erziehung und darüber hinaus möglich machen wird.

This book is a guide to help teachers, parents, guidance counselors and other stakeholders understand the importance of intervention for gifted children and to become an advocate for those individuals who are developmentally advanced. The reader becomes engaged in the analogy of a three part airplane journey to the world of gifted education: ‘Embarking on a Journey;’ ‘Preparing for Departure’ and ‘Planning for Arrival.’ The author offers insightful case studies followed by strategies for both teachers and parents gained from personal experiences and research to identify and work with different types of children who present unique challenges due to their special needs of high potential. By presenting a historical overview in gifted education from a global perspective, Your Passport to Gifted Education provides current internationally-researched information to clarify what is meant by ‘giftedness’ according to various cultures. The book encourages the development of a growth mindset in the reader to seek to identify various characteristics of high ability in all children. Four international high ability identification models are introduced, including one relatively new to North America, the High Performance Learning Framework (HPL), currently used throughout China, Europe, the Middle East and South East Asia. Dispelling the myth that gifted children do not need our help, the reader gains insight into the uniquely different types of gifted individuals. The book concludes by awarding the reader with a ‘Landing Card’ to serve as a bookmarker that underpins the best teaching practices in gifted education. A directory list of websites for international gifted organizations is also included to offer additional resources for those who want to continue their journey as advocates and learn how other countries support gifted children around the world.

Die kulturhistorische Theorie steht fur einen sozialen Begriff von Behinderung. Jede Beeintrachtigung wird erst durch den gesellschaftlichen Kontext zur Behinderung. Sie ist abhangig von den sozialen Lebensbedingungen, von den Lern-, Bildungs- und Entwicklungsmoglichkeiten, die dem Menschen offen stehen oder ihm vorenthalten werden. Fur die Behindertenpadagogik ist daher die Reflexion auf die Bedingungen und Strukturen entscheidend, unter denen Behinderung erst entsteht. Ihre Analyse ist zugleich eine erste Voraussetzung, um der Aussonderung Behinderter entgegenzuwirken.<BR> Der vorliegende Band vereint erstmalig Autorinnen und Autoren, die sich aus der Sichtweise der kulturhistorischen Schule der Psychologie heraus Fragen widmen, die einen Kindergarten, eine Schule und eine Gesellschaft ohne Aussonderung betreffen. Sie behandeln u.a. die Themen des gemeinsamen Lernens im Vor- und Grundschulalter, padagogischer und institutioneller Strukturen, therapeutischer Interventionen sowie zentrale Aspekte des aktuellen Fachdiskurses."
