Tony Wagner (Harvard University, author of books about innovations in education) put it simply: The world doesn't care about what students know. It wants to see what students have done with what they have learned.Students at High Tech High put their work on display. Your school could do better: Add links to video presentations by your students explaining their work. I want to hear the students at High Tech High describing the process that they went through. Their portfolios are flat, two-dimensional, and static. Even the best digital portfolios simply sit there on the screen, waiting to be read. Why not add a video link so that future employers and college admission officers can hear the voices of your students? Why not "one-up" the High Tech High standard for Digital Portfolios?We look forward to searching your school's website and finding a link to Digital PortfoliosWe want to see what your teachers and students do with this idea.

Comparative Public Budgeting and Finance is a collection of original chapters examining public budgeting issues, methods, and techniques in countries around the world. Each chapter: --explores the history of the budget system and how it fits within the political system in the country, as well as the legal foundation and any reforms that affect the budget system. A discussion of revenue and expenditure allocations is included in each section. --provides the reader with political, demographic and economic background information on each country along with a detailed analysis of the budgeting process. This information is reinforced with charts, tables and figures. In addition, questions at the end of each chapter will provide the students with key concepts to focus on. --also examines topics such as: budget behavior and decision making, capital budgeting, analytical processes, budget processes, intergovernmental relations, budget reform, performance budgeting, and financial management. --concludes with a list of thought provoking questions, an appendix, end notes and a glossary which provides a point of departure for classroom discussion as well as individual student research on each country. Appropriate Courses: Primary Course Title: Comparative Budgeting. Primary Department: Public Administration. Secondary Course: Budget and Finance. Secondary Department: Public Affairs, Department of Political Science, or Public Affairs. This book is specifically designed for a graduate level course in budgeting. There are no other books currently on the market that examine budgeting in a comparative sense that focuses on individual countries. So, rather than utilize a lot of articles from journals a faculty member can use one text and use the articles as supplemental documents. This is the greatest benefit. The second benefit is the instructora (TM)s manual with the lecture outline and power point slides. The instructor should have minimal preparation for the course and students can simply read the questions at the end of the chapter to see where they should focus their attention. The book stands out because it is a one of kind in an area that has massed considerable attention in the last year given the credit crunch that has occurred world wide. It is important from a pedagogical standpoint to provide the instructor with as much information and tools as possible given the need to fully utilize technology in the classroom. 1.Does the book have questions at the end of the chapters? 2.Does the book provide power point slides? 3.Does the book provide an instructora (TM)s manual. 4.Does the book critically assess the subject matter and cause students to think? 5.Does the book address the issues in a coherent fashion? There are no books that examine comparative budgeting utilizing this paradigm, a country by country examination. Books that are on the market utilize a thematic approach and then use country examples when discussing those themes. For example: Anwar Shah (ed). Budgeting and Budgetary Institutions, 2007/ The World Bank.
