As information is being presented, the audience can share their thoughts,
connections, and links to related material. Some people document key points
from the presenter and others may use the chat to challenge those same points.
Either way, the use of the backchannel to transform passive attendees to active
contributors is similar to the same shift educators are seeking to facilitate in their
own brick-andmortar classrooms. Within schools, webinars can be a very
effective method of ...

Such judgements are difficult, but if they are not formed it is impossible to know
whether any progress is being made because of the school's provision. Like any
other area in which the school is striving to promote progress, it is necessary to
know the starting point and the progress or lack of it, in order to develop and
refine provision. In a school which promotes religious values, say a church
school, it would be surprising if there was not a greater coherence than in other
schools in the ...

These were the framing questions for a national survey of parental expectations,
emanating in a series of four publications in 1990 entitled Talking about Schools.
10 These publications, which identified perceptions and expectations of 'good
schools', illustrated just how much could be learned from tuning in to the voices of
the key investors – parents – with a right to expect schools to repay their trust and
goodwill. Documenting the range of expectations as well as a common core of ...

school administrators, teachers, parents, and students—to apply theirown values
when interpreting how the principles should apply in daily-life situations.
Because of people's differences in personal values, U.S. Supreme Court cases

the scenarios presented in Chapter 3. An element of the declining “mystique” and
distance between schools and societies also stems from the more diversified
sources of knowledge in today's society. As popu- lations become more highly
educated and as the means of accessing knowledge become more diversified,

They decided to send me to a nearby oral school named Camelot. By that time,
my brother, also Deaf, had been born. I spent my prekindergarten years receiving
speech lessons and running around. Apparently I did not understand the purpose
of school, other than playing. Mom noticed that I arrived home every afternoon
looking depressed. At home, I could talk all I wanted in American Sign Language,
but at school, I was punished for signing. After school, I would not talk about what
