A special “Psychology Matters” section within each chapter focuses on Using Psychology to Learn Psychology, offering practical advice for increased academic success. (ex. p. 79)“Connection" arrows link material across chapters, showing clear relationships between concepts in various topical areas. An explanatory note accompanies the marginal arrow, giving the reader a quick review or preview of the related discussion found in other chapters. This conveys to students that the discipline of psychology contains many interconnecting threads that weave together to provide meaning across topics, rather than functioning as a set of isolated facts and topics. (ex. p. 68)The Discovering Psychology Viewing Guide at the end of each chapter in the text includes a program review and activities tied to the Discovering Psychology video series, helping students tie text concepts to what they see in the videos. Students can access the Discovering Psychology videos online through MyPsychLab whenever and wherever they want. They can also complete an online, automatically scored review quiz. (ex. p. 84)PERSONALIZE LEARNING The new MyPsychLab delivers proven results in helping students succeed, provides engaging experiences that personalize learning, and comes from a trusted partner with educational expertise and a deep commitment to helping students and instructors achieve their goals. New MyPsychLab Video Series - This new video series offers the most current and cutting-edge introductory psychology video content. These exclusive half-hour videos take the viewer into today’s research laboratories, inside the body and brain, and onto the street to experience real-world applications. In MyPsychLab, students can also access the Discovering Psychology videos, which provide an overview of historic and current theories of human behavior, and feature many of the researchers and studies introduced in this textbook. The New Experiments Tool, found in MyPsychLab, allows students to experience psychology through online experiments that reinforce class lessons and textbook content. A New Read More section in MyPsychLab offers interested students the opportunity to explore topics that branch out from the core concepts presented in the text. The Pearson eText allows students to access their textbook anytime, anywhere, and any way they want—including listening online or downloading to their iPad. A personalized study plan for each student, based on Bloom’s Taxonomy, arranges content from less complex thinking—like remembering and understanding—to more complex critical thinking—like applying and analyzing. This layered approach promotes better critical-thinking skills, and helps students succeed in the course and beyond. Assessment tied to every video, application, and chapter enables both instructors and students to track progress and get immediate feedback. With results feeding into a powerful gradebook, the assessment program helps instructors identify student challenges early—and find the best resources with which to help students. An assignment calendar allows instructors to assign graded activities, with specific deadlines, and measure student progress. Class Prep collects the very best class presentation resources in one convenient online destination, so instructors can keep students engaged throughout every class. IMPROVE CRITICAL THINKING Chapter Opening Problems are designed to get students engaged in the material from the onset. Students are encouraged to think through the problem as they read the chapter, using the core concepts presented to help them resolve the problem. A special effort has been made in this new edition to provide clues throughout the chapter that will help students understand the solution to the chapter-opening problem. The Chapter Summary now gives a brief “answer” to the problem as well. (ex. p. 40)Critical Thinking applications at the end of each chapter help students become better consumers of scientific information and build upon the critical thinking skills introduced in the first chapter. (ex. p. 80)“Do It Yourself!” learning activities offer simple demonstrations of psychological principles and allow students to actively apply psychological concepts alone or in groups, further enhancing their understanding. (ex. p. 81)“Psychology Matters” applications within each chapter section explore connections between psychology and everyday life and promote critical thinking by helping students evaluate many of the psychological ideas they will encounter in popular press (e.g. emotional differences between men and women, the origin of sexual orientation, the side effects of psychoactive drugs, etc.).

This layered approach promotes better critical-thinking skills, and helps students succeed in the course and beyond. ENGAGE STUDENTS A “Key Question” opens each chapter section and a “Core Concept” is presented as a brief answer. These Key Questions and Core Concepts help students understand the big picture and guide them through the chapter material. Chapter overview maps and chapter-ending summaries are organized around the “Key Questions” and “Core Concepts” to further reinforce learning. (ex. p. 43) Chapter Opening Problems are designed to get students engaged in the material from the onset. Students are encouraged to think through the problem as they read the chapter, using the core concepts presented to help them resolve the problem.

(ex. p. 40) TheChapter Summary now gives a brief “answer” to the problem as well. (ex. p. 81)“Check Your Understanding" self-tests within each chapter provide immediate reinforcement and help students assess what they know and where they need further study. Questions are broken down to focus on recall, analysis, or application of the material. One of the “Check Your Understanding” questions always focuses on the chapter's “Core Concept.” This approach is deliberately used to reinforce the student's use of the “Core Concepts.” (ex. p. 62)“Do It Yourself!" learning activities offer simple demonstrations of psychological principles and allow students to actively apply psychological concepts alone or in groups, further enhancing their understanding.&nbsp IN THIS SECTION: 1.)

20,99 € *

Throwing Sheep in the Boardroom is the first book written for a wide audience about the powerful trend that is reshaping your life: the Web 2.0 social networking revolution. Throwing Sheep in the Board is about how the Web 2.0 revolution is transforming your life, your work, and your world. Combining a pop sociology approach with rigorous analysis rich in economic history and organizational behaviour, Matthew Fraser and Soumitra Dutta have written a lively and provocative book about the global popularity of social networking platforms - from MySpace and Facebook to YouTube, Wikipedia and Twitter. Social networking sites are a global phenomenon. Sites like MySpace and Facebook now boast hundreds of millions of members. Online social interaction has become an indispensable part of their daily lives. Fraser and Dutta examine the powerful forces driving this social e-revolution, describe the equally powerful reactions to it, and make predictions about its long-term consequences. The book is organized around three major themes: identity, status, and power. Following the explosion of Web 2.0 social platforms, identities are becoming increasingly multi-faceted, status is becoming more democratically based on performance, and power is being diffused from centralized vertical structures to horizontal networks. These are powerful changes with profound, far-reaching implications for how we organize our lives, our institutions, and our society. Taking its title from the whimsical "sheep throwing" application used by members of sites like Facebook, the book concludes with reflections on the Web's potential to revitalize social capital and civic participation through e-government and e-democracy. Throwing Sheep in the Boardroom will be enjoyed by educated readers with an interest in social trends, consumer behaviour, psychology, history, politics and economics.

Following the explosion of Web 2.0 social platforms, identities are becoming increasingly multi-faceted, status is becoming more democratically based on performance, and power is being diffused from centralized vertical structures to horizontal networks. These are powerful changes with profound, far-reaching implications for how we organize our lives, our institutions, and our society. Taking its title from the whimsical "sheep throwing" application used by members of sites like Facebook, the book concludes with reflections on the Web's potential to revitalize social capital and civic participation through e-government and e-democracy. Throwing Sheep in the Boardroom will be enjoyed by educated readers with an interest in social trends, consumer behaviour, psychology, history, politics and economics.
