New Literacies, New Learning Theme for The Educational Forum Published by Kappa Delta Pi

Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) October 30, 2012

In choosing New Literacies, New Learning as the theme for The Educational Forum, a Kappa Delta Pi publication, Dr. Alan Amtzis, Academic Editor, invited Dr. Patricia Paugh to join him to learn the ways in which developments of technology and interactive digital media are augmenting, extending, and amending the traditional functioning of teaching, learning, and education. Dr. Amtzis is Director of the Master of Education Program in Educational Leadership: Instruction for The College of New Jersey. Dr. Paugh is an Associate Professor in the Curriculum and Instruction Department at the University of MassachusettsBoston.

The Educational Forum, vol 76, no. 4 (October-December 2012) explores how learning, and teaching, are changing as a result of the proliferation and availability of digital and computer-based technology. In 1436 Guttenbergs moveable type printing press ushered in the first tidal wave of what might be called New Literacy. Because learning has always been tied to the spoken or written word, memory and recall have been the proof of learning. However, memorization is being replaced by access and retrievability, which are changing the nature of application, depth, and utility.

Kappa Delta Pi is pleased to offer perspectives from senior scholars, essays from K-16 classroom teachers, and current research on New Literacies, New Learning through a themed issue of The Educational Forum, says Dr. Amtzis. Senior scholars Dr. Dana Wilber, Dr. Julie Coiro, Dr. James Paul Gee, Dr. Elena Forzani, and Dr. Donald J. Leu offered overviews of the emergence and future of new literacies. Classroom teachers from elementary school through college education courses submitted essays explaining the uses and effects of new literacies in their classrooms. Titles range from Digital Storytelling: Using Technology to Spark Creativity to Cell Phones Transform a Science Methods Course and from Finding a Voice: Freedom through Digital Literacies to Trust and Mobile Media Use in Schools. Research reports cover adolescent interactions with text across discourses, twitteracy as a new literacy practice, peer collaborations in online inquiry, Hip Hop as a new literacy, and concerns about the paths of new literacies. In her Closing Editorial Statement, Dr. Paugh states that new literacies, while emerging in a digital age, are more than technology; they are practices that lead to new social structures and new ways of being in the world.

The Educational Forum is a doubly masked peer-reviewed academic journal published quarterly to provide thought-provoking, challenging essays, research reports, and featured works designed to stimulate dialogue in education on a worldwide scale.

Newly Published Info-Graphic Compares Civilian vs. Military Jobs

Newly Published Info-Graphic Compares Civilian vs. Military Jobs

VA Loan Company

Salt Lake City, UT (Vocus/PRWEB) April 18, 2011

The new military vs. civilian salary info graphic compares the average salary of various occupations and discusses the monetary advantage and disadvantages of enlisting in the U.S. Armed Forces.

The info graphic compares 14 different positions with the average salary in the military coming up nearly $ 20,000 less then civilian positions. However, it’s hard to put a monetary value on many of the other benefits that come from having a military job.

The military offer many extremely valuable benefits including, healthcare, dental, educational programs and tuition reimbursement, inexpensive housing, gym memberships and many other perks.

The info graphic also shows that there can be salary advantages for those going into specific fields in the military. The average military computer technician makes nearly $ 40,000 more per year then a civilian computer technician.

There are also some jobs that would be a great monetary disadvantage to be a part of the military. The average civilian doctor makes approximately $ 156,000 per year. The average military doctor makes less than half the salary of the civilian doctor at only $ 58,000 per year.

Owner of, Eric Kandell, created the info graphic to help potential soldiers to know the monetary advantages and disadvantages of entering the military.

“The military offers a lot of unique opportunities for young men and women,” Kandell said. “Many times it’s a great decision to provide stability and even in some cases higher pay.”

As of 30 September 2010, there are 1,430,895 troops on active duty in the military. The number of active troops is projected to increase as Secretary of Defense Robert Gates has proposed plans to increase the various military branches.

It’s hard to predict whether the increase in troops will push the average income higher or lower for military jobs. With more able men and women to perform jobs, the projection is that the average pay will slightly decrease, but there is no guarantee on a change in salary either way.

“It seems that enlisting in the military is becoming more popular because of the security and benefits it provides,” Kandell said. “The military always provides a stable option for those looking for work, particularly during a down economy.”

Those enlisting in the military on average can expect to be paid less then civilians. The average salaries of the 14 civilian occupations in the info graphic were $ 73,220.57 per year. The average salary of the 14 military occupations was $ 53,439.85 per year.

“The thing I love about the men and women of the military is that they are very passionate about what they do and the great service they provide this nation,” Kandell said. “It’s impossible to put a price tag on what these courageous men and women do for our country.”

Argea’s New White Paper on Assessing Outsourcing Readiness in Mid-Market Companies Published Online at Outsourcing Venture

Argea’s New White Paper on Assessing Outsourcing Readiness in Mid-Market Companies Published Online at Outsourcing Venture

Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) August 11, 2005 -

Argea today announced the publication of Assessing Outsourcing Readiness in Mid-Market Companies in Outsourcing Venture’s special online section on solving mid-market challenges in outsourcing ( The white paper addresses the key elements of achieving organizational readiness in mid-market companies for onshore, nearshore or offshore outsourcing. The paper is the most recent in a continuous series devoted to outsourcing in mid-market companies that Argea publishes in the print magazine and online portal of Outsourcing Venture, formerly known as

There is growing evidence that most companies have one or more serious defects in their outsourcing implementation and management that are preventing them from attaining the full advantages which outsourcing is designed to deliver. Ram Iyer, CEO of Argea, said, “These defects are usually caused by a poor state of readiness to begin outsourcing. In most cases, skill, resource and knowledge shortages are to blame and these are especially common in mid-market companies. With the right guidance, however, these companies can meet and even exceed the outsourcing performance of larger companies.”

Companies in this market sector have been generally underserved, both by outsourcing providers and specialist advisors that can successfully guide them through the outsourcing lifecycle. Mid-sized companies face at least a dozen unique challenges compared to larger enterprises and it takes specialized understanding to help these companies to successfully adopt and use outsourcing as a competitive tool.

“While outsourcing can uniquely solve business challenges and create competitive advantage, it comes with risks. The information presented in Argea’s Outsourcing Readiness white paper presents crucial risk-mitigation information and strategies for successfully achieving anticipated return on investment,” said Kathleen Goolsby, editor of Outsourcing Venture magazine.

Outsourcing Venture is devoted to providing insight into outsourcing and is committed to bringing the most timely and informative intelligence to the outsourcing community. Additionally, the company’s leaders are keen to transfer essential outsourcing knowledge and competency into the mid-market, which has been overlooked in outsourcing education. “We are pleased to have Argea as an alliance partner and proud to publish another Argea paper with strategic content that is exactly what buyers of outsourcing services need to know,” stated Paul Grim, founder and publisher of Outsourcing Venture’s magazine and online portal.

About Argea

Argea's Mission is to help US-based businesses become more globally competitive by intelligently choosing and collaboratively integrating global resources and technologies to drive business performance. Argea takes a practitioner-based approach to outsourcing, primarily using outsourcing practitioners with experience at Fortune1000 companies that have firsthand knowledge of the nuances of successful outsourcing.
