Shannon W. Dingman, Laura B. Kent, Kim K. McComas and Cynthia C. Orona

The Language of Mathematics Education: An Expanded Glossary of Key Terms and Concepts in Mathematics Teaching and Learning offers mathematics teachers, mathematics education professionals and students a valuable resource in which common terms are defined and expounded upon in short essay format. The shared vocabulary and terminology relating to mathematics teaching and learning, and used by mathematics educators is an essential component of work conducted in the field.

The authors provide an overview of more than 100 terms commonly used in mathematics teaching and learning. Each term is defined and is followed by a short overview of the concept under discussion that includes several bibliographic references the reader can use for further investigation. In addition to terms specific to the domain of mathematics education, select key terms common across all fields of education (e.g., curriculum, epistemology, metacognition) are included. The goal for this book is to serve as a resource for those entering the field as they navigate the language and terminology of mathematics education and as an asset for more established professionals who wish to gain additional insights into these ideas.

Big Data, Data Science, maschinelles Lernen – Begriffe, die auf Daten und ihren Wert für vielfältige Anwendungen hinweisen. Wem nützen die Daten? Wer darf sie nutzen? Wie werden wissenschaftlicher Fortschritt, Erfolg im ökonomischen Wettbewerb und Schutz der Privatsphäre gleichzeitig erreicht? Der Sammelband gibt die Referate einer Fachtagung der Nordrhein-Westfälischen Akademie der Wissenschaften und der Künste wieder, mit Beiträgen aus der Informatik, Statistik, Medizin, den Ingenieursdisziplinen, Rechts- und Wirtschaftswissenschaften. Damit beteiligt sich die Akademie an der dringend nötigen Diskussion, wie den Herausforderungen durch die heutigen Möglichkeiten der Datensammlung und -nutzung zu begegnen ist.

Information and communication technologies (ICT) are major forces shaping our current age. ICT affects many areas of human existence and influences the both human wellbeing and human evil. The nonprofit sector is already heavily involved in technology both as a way to pursue its mission and as an influential factor in the evolution of the sector. This article examines how technology affects the sector and how the sector uses technology in its work.
The article begins with a discussion of how the emerging information society will change the nonprofit sector. The sector that we know is grounded on our experience in the agrarian and industrial periods in the United States and Europe. We then explore how technology evolved in the sector. This is followed by an examination of technology and nonprofit organizational behavior. Technology changes the organizations that make use of its capacities. Next is a discussion of the types of technology that nonprofit organizations use. The final three sections deal with technology and social change, technology in nonprofit settings, and issues and trends. This article provides the reader with a current appreciation of the scholarly and professional literature on ICT in the nonprofit sector.
