“In their remarkable collection, Dede and Richards illuminate a powerful category of educational technologies in the emerging world of pervasive 1:1 computing. This book will change the discourse on 21st century education.”
—Roy Pea, David Jacks Professor of Education and Learning Sciences, Stanford University
The Digital Teaching Platform (DTP) brings the power of interactive technology to teaching and learning in classrooms. In this authoritative book, top researchers in the field of learning science and educational technology examine the current state of design and research on DTPs, the principles for evaluating them, and their likely evolution as a dominant medium for educational improvement. The authors examine DTPs in light of contemporary classroom requirements, as well as current initiatives such as the Common Core State Standards, Race to the Top, and the 2010 National Educational Technology Plan.
This up-to-date volume shows how a fully fledged DTP supports classroom teachers with tools for:
Creating lessons and assignments.
Displaying and evaluating student work.
Generating student progress reports.
Managing group discussions and activities.

Starting with an introduction to the methods and uses of recombinant DNA technology, the remaining contributions made by researchers at the symposium are organized into four parts. The first part contains papers on the development and utilization of recombinant DNA technology; genetic engineering in agriculture; and the dangers of unrestricted research. The second part focuses on the ethical aspects of recombinant DNA research. It includes studies such as ethical prerequisites for examining biological research; the limitations of broad moral policies; and ethical theories underlying the recombinant DNA controversy. The third part examines the legal aspects of recombinant DNA research and examines the issue of whether such research should be regulated. The papers in the fourth part consider directors for future research.
