An engaging, enlightening, and cleverly illustrated guide to product design, written by experienced professional designers and instructors. Products are in every area of our lives, but just what product designers do and how they think is a mystery to most.

This accessible guide provides an entry point into this vast field through 101 brief, illustrated lessons exploring such areas as • why all design is performed in relation to the body • why every product is part of a system • the difference between being clever and being gimmicky • why notions of beauty are universal across cultures • how to use both storytelling and argument to effectively persuade Written by three experienced design instructors and professionals, 101 Things I Learned® in Product Design School provides concise, thoughtful touch points for beginning design students, experienced professionals, and anyone else wishing to better understand this complex field that shapes our lives every day.

NEA Teacher-to-Teacher Books are designed to promote team building, to enhance collegial leadership, and to give all K-12 teachers ideas and strategies for improving student learning. This book describes the personal odysseys of six teachers who have used technology to transform their teaching. Each story illustrates step-by-step how the teachers integrate technology into their school curriculum. The teachers share the strategies they have used to start up programs, get around stumbling blocks, and find needed funds for equipment and software. They also describe how they use technology to help their students develop the critical thinking and interpersonal skills they need to become better learners. Each chapter includes diagrams, checklists, or tables to help other teachers develop, facilitate, or improve similar programs in their district. At the end of each chapter is a "Reader Reflections" page where readers can jot down immediate thoughts and ideas to follow up on. Ferdi Serim, a computer resource teacher in the Princeton Regional Schools, works with social studies, science, and language arts classes on a Year 2000 project that explores the impact of society's reliance on technology. Technology coordinator Janis Lowe describes how she and her colleagues at Roosevelt-Perry Elementary, a Title I school and State Model Technology School, use technology to improve reading, help teachers control their workload, and link the school to the surrounding community. Al Bode, a high school Spanish teacher, uses the Internet to provide his students with a cultural and linguistic immersion that would otherwise be hard to come by in rural Iowa. Library/Media Specialist Elaine Snider has evolved from teaching library skills with a card catalog to helping students prepare multimedia reports with sophisticated software. English teacher Beth Cristensen was once terrified of computers, but now she and her eighth grade class have an award-winning Web site with an international audience. When students complete Stephen Lalonde's class on radio and video production, they are ready for the real world of work. (AEF)

Arab women filmmakers: Who are they? What drives them? What are their experiences in a male-dominated profession? How do they function within the contexts--and constraints--of patriarchal societies? The answers are complex and sometimes surprising, as complex and surprising as the vastly different films these women direct. In this unprecedented book, Rebecca Hillauer assembles a comprehensive and penetrating look into the history of Arab women's filmmaking, as well as the political and social background of the countries--Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Algeria, among others--from which these artists emerged. In addition to the biographies, filmographies, and discussions of their most important works, lively, in-depth interviews allow us to hear from the filmmakers themselves. Collectively, these women, who hail from a wide range of professional, religious, and social backgrounds, provide a varied and vivid picture of what it means to work in creative and journalistic fields in the modern Arab world. For Hillauer, the subject of a film, its genesis, and the personal story of the artist who created it reveal far more than a particular approach to cinematography. Arab women filmmakers and their main characters (who are often semi-autobiographical) not only afford us a look at seldom-seen facets of Arab societies, they personify an alternative women's 'model, ' one that is far removed from western clichés. Broad in scope, and rich in insight, Arab Women Filmmakers is a must read for cineastes as well as students of film, feminism, and the Middle East.

A sparkling collection of interviews with African American directors and producers. Bringing together more than thirty candid conversations with filmmakers and producers such as Spike Lee, Gordon Parks, Julie Dash, Charles Burnett, and Robert Townsend, Why We Make Movies delivers a cultural celebration with the tips of a film-school master class. With journalist George Alexander, these revolutionary men and women discuss not only how they got their big breaks, but more importantly, they explore the creative process and what making movies means to them. Why We Make Movies also addresses the business of Hollywood and its turning tide, in a nation where African Americans comprise a sizable portion of the film-going public and go to the movies more frequently than whites. In addition, Alexander’s cast of directors and producers considers the lead roles they now play in everything from documentaries and films for television to broad-based blockbusters (in fact, the highest-grossing film in Miramax history was Scary Movie, directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans). For film buffs and aspiring filmmakers alike, Why We Make Movies puts a long-overdue spotlight on one of the most exciting and cutting-edge segments of today’s silver screen. INTERVIEWS INCLUDE: MELVIN VAN PEEBLES • MICHAEL SCHULTZ • CHARLES BURNETT • SPIKE LEE • ROBERT TOWNSEND • FRED WILLIAMSON • ERNEST DICKERSON • KEENEN IVORY WAYANS • ANTOINE FUQUA • BILL DUKE • FORREST WHITAKER • JULIE DASH • KASI LEMMONS • GINA PRINC-BLYTHEWOOD • JOHN SINGLETON • GEORGE TILLMAN Jr. • REGINALD HUDLIN • WARRINGTON HUDLIN • MALCOLM LEE • EUZHAN PALCY • DOUG McHENRY • DEBRA MARTIN CHASE • St. CLAIR BOURNE • STANLEY NELSON • WILLIAM GREAVES • KATHE SANDLER • CAMILLE BILLOPS • HAILE GERIMA • GORDON PARKS
