The integration of digital technologies into practice presents opportunities and challenges for the field of youth work. Digitalization procedures transform interactions with users, in addition to their needs. These also transform the organizations where youth workers are involved in professional practice. Adapting digital technological tools is a crucial challenge for the youth work profession. Youth Work in a Digital Society is an essential scholarly publication that explores how to overcome any challenges and issues facing youth development work in the digital age and to what extent modern digital technologies can contribute to empowering youth work practice. Featuring a wide range of topics such as digital inclusion, mobile technologies, and social media, this book is ideal for executives, managers, researchers, professionals, academicians, policymakers, practitioners, and students.
In an age when for the first time the next generation are facing worse prospects than those of their parents, Youth Prospects is an original contribution to understanding young people's needs based on comparison between England and Germany. Based on a comparison of contemporary labor markets in England and Germany, this book explores the impact of factors such as mass migration, rising nationalism, right-wing movements, and ever-accelerating technological change for young people and provides a pragmatic blueprint for the transition systems, skills, and resources that young people require for a prosperous future.
This edited text brings together academics who are at the cutting edge of youth work education. The book draws on global perspectives to explore current practice conditions and generate rich debate regarding the power and potential of future practice.
Working with Young People is designed to help you develop the knowledge and skills you need for supporting young people as they learn about themselves, others and society and prepare for the transition to adulthood. It introduces the fundamental concepts and issues that lie at the heart of contemporary work with young people and challenges you to think deeply about: - the social context of young people - values and principles that underpin practice - the variety of settings in which practice takes place, and - the importance of informal learning in the lives of young people. Whether you are a new student or returning to study, Working with Young Poeple provides a stimulating introduction and a foundation for further study.

Drawing on diverse theoretical perspectives, this book examines questions of youth citizenship and participation by exploring their meanings in policy, practice and youth experience. It examines young people's participation in non-government and youth-led organisations, and asks what can be done to bridge the democratic disconnect.
There are many advantages to incorporating digital services in business, including improved data management, higher transparency, personalized customer service, and cost reduction. Innovation is a key driver to how digital services are formed, developed, delivered, and used by consumers, employees, and employers. The largest differentiator comes from having a digitally empowered workforce. Companies increasingly need digital workers to establish greater digital skills to bear on every activity. Business leaders especially need to steer digital priorities, drive innovation, and develop digital platforms. Leadership, Management, and Adoption Techniques for Digital Service Innovation is an essential reference source that discusses the adoption of digital services in multiple industries and presents digital technologies to address and further advance innovation to drive successful solutions. Featuring research on topics such as cloud computing, digital business, and value creation, this book is ideally designed for managers, leaders, executives, directors, IT consultants, academicians, researchers, industry professionals, students, and practitioners.

As the use of remote work has recently skyrocketed, digital transformation within the workplace has gone under a microscope, and it has become abundantly clear that the incorporation of new technologies in the workplace is the future of business. These technologies keep businesses up to date with their capabilities to perform remote work and make processes more efficient and effective than ever before. In understanding digital transformation in the workplace there needs to be advanced research on technology, organizational change, and the impacts of remote work on the business, the employees, and day-to-day work practices. This advancement to a digital work culture and remote work is rapidly undergoing major advancements, and research is needed to keep up with both the positives and negatives to this transformation. The Research Anthology on Digital Transformation, Organizational Change, and the Impact of Remote Work contains hand-selected, previously published research that explores the impacts of remote work on business workplaces while also focusing on digital transformation for improving the efficiency of work. While highlighting work technologies, digital practices, business management, organizational change, and the effects of remote work on employees, this book is an all-encompassing research work intended for managers, business owners, IT specialists, executives, practitioners, stakeholders, researchers, academicians, and students interested in how digital transformation and remote work is affecting workplaces.

There has been an evolution of the explanations on the results of research on human learning and how digital technologies have supported the design of more efficient learning environments. Previous theories such as Richard Mayer’s cognitive theory of multimedia learning and John Sweller’s cognitive load theory have gained signification attention and remain the two main theories within the multimedia learning field. However, there has not yet been a book compiled of several investigations on the specific 4C-ID model that covers different domains of knowledge. The 4C-ID model combines the two main theories of Richard Mayer and John Sweller to advance the field of learning and instruction. 4C-ID Model and Cognitive Approaches to Instructional Design and Technology: Emerging Research and Opportunities explores the behavioral and constructivist approaches to learning and instruction and focuses mainly on the particular cognitive approach and resulting theories and insights of the 4C-ID model. The chapters present the results of three experimental studies applied to the teaching of electrical circuits, initiation to computer programming using the Alice microworld, and computer programming using Python textual language. This book is a valuable resource tool for computer programmers, computer scientists, teachers, educational psychologists, practitioners, researchers, academicians, and students interested in the various approaches to learning and instruction in terms of the 4C-ID instructional model.
Much like different lenses will give a camera a different view, different forms of media portray different aspects of political relations. Without conveyed messages through audiovisual media, individuals would lose those conveyed messages through sub-textual means. Universal Codes of Media in International Political Communications: Emerging Research and Opportunities provides emerging research exploring the theoretical and practical aspects of audiovisual media and applications within political science. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as media representation, political studies, and international communications, this book is ideally designed for policymakers, administrators, and government officials.
This book adopts a critical youth studies approach and theorizes the digital as a key feature of the everyday to analyse how ideas about youth and cyber-safety, digital inclusion and citizenship are mobilized. Despite a growing interest in the benefits and opportunities for young people online, both ‘young people’ and ‘the digital’ continue to be constructed primarily as sites of social and cultural anxiety requiring containment and control. Juxtaposing public policy, popular educational and parental framings of young people’s digital practices with the insights from fieldwork conducted with young Australians aged 12–25, the book highlights the generative possibilities of attending to intergenerational tensions. In doing so, the authors show how a shift beyond the paradigm of control opens up towards a deeper understanding of the capacities that are generated in and through digital life for young and old alike. Young People in Digital Society will be of interest to scholars and students in youth studies, cultural studies, sociology, education, and media and communications.
