Ebooks for Elementary School
by Terence W. Cavanaugh
Today, eBooks are everywhere, and the use of digital learning materials is beginning to supplant traditional printed materials. As the world shifts to digital books, both teachers and students need to be comfortable and effective using materials in this format. This book helps you to apply eBook materials to existing curricula to create interactive educational activities and have access to more materials to support reading instruction, literacy, standards, and reading in the content areas.
Author Terence W. Cavanaugh, an expert on teaching with technology, describes numerous strategies for integrating eBooks into reading instruction and remediation for students in preschool through grade 6. He covers the hardware and software used, the wide range of formats available, and research conducted on the use of eBooks with students as well as how to access free resources such as digital libraries and special collections that make eBooks available for schools. The book also contains a chapter dedicated to using eBooks to help emergent or struggling readers.
Maven for Eclipse
by Sanjay Shah
by Eric Pugh, Joseph D. Gradecki
This book is written for professional Java developers who already understand how to build server-side Java applications. The book assumes no previous experience with Hibernate, though readers should have a general familiarity with databases and Web development.
What does this book cover?
After a quick overview of Hibernate in the first two chapters, the authors jump right to the code. They show how to do the following:
- Obtain and install Hibernate
- Build the Hibernate development environment
- Use Hibernate to connect to databases
- Use Hibernate to create persistent classes and objects
- Use the Hibernate database query language and transaction management functions
- Use the Hibernate APIs
After covering these essentials, the authors go further, showing readers how to use Hibernate in the real world. This means demonstrating how to use Hibernate with other popular tools that readers are using (including Eclipse, Tomcat, Maven, Struts, and XDoclet). This book takes a very real-world, hands-on approach to these topics and includes many working code examples, as well as a sophisticated sample application.
