About the Book
"Learning on the School Bus: A Reading Comprehension and Creative Writing Workbook for Secondary Students" provides unique reading comprehension and creative writing opportunities about learning outside the classroom. The author, Keshia L. Gaines, Ph.D., offers ground-breaking techniques to expand areas for learning opportunities. According to Dr. Gaines, students should learn from academic content on the school bus and other unique learning areas (the bus stop, cafeteria, playgrounds, bathrooms, academic clothing, etc.) Since students are not meeting academic expectations in the general classroom, it is important to consider all methods and areas for students to learn.
The vocabulary words from each chapter's word review are in bold lettering once within the chapter. In addition, a few QR Codes (Quick Response Codes) will be featured throughout the workbook. These QR Codes will take you directly to a web page when scanned by a smartphone with a QR Code app.

Educational technology in the broadest sense is knowledge and competence forimproving the educational process: for using hardware (equipment), software (methods), and "underware" (underlying organizational structures). This volume in the Special Programme on Advanced Educational Technology presents the results of a NATO Advanced Research Workshop on educational systems design as a new educational technology. The objective of the workshop was toadvance our knowledge about the comprehensive systems design approach for improving educational systems. The workshop was organized for the transdisciplinary interaction of three scientific groups representing design science, organizational/systems science, and educationaltechnology. Participants were selected based on their scholarship as members of one or more of these three groups. The book opens with theframing papers sent by the editors to participants prior to the workshop, then presents five sets of thematic contributions: the conceptual and empirical contexts of comprehensive systems design, the systems design focus, a systems view of designing educational systems, the educational context of systems design, and high technology focus in systems design.
