Abstract
This book emphasizes the concept that every person's viewpoint is unique, that we each have our own reality or story, and that we bring that story to every interaction we have with others. Thus, a critical component of having effective and meaningful dialogue with others is our ability to be aware of our own stories "in the moment" and understand that others have their own stories. The book offers techniques to enhance our skills at learning through interaction. In addition to focusing on heightening awareness about our one on one interactions, this book also identifies how a reader may apply these skills to analyzing and improving systems (for example, analyzing patterns of communication behavior and potentially improving those interactions based on uncovering why those patterns exist).

It was developed long before Agile and other iterative processes that have introduced greater efficiencies in design and development, fostered more creativity, and addressed effective stakeholder involvement. Leaving ADDIE for SAM introduces two new concepts - SAM, the Successive Approximation Model, and the Savvy Start. Together, they incorporate contemporary design and development processes that reduce the complexity of instructional design and development, yielding more energetic and effective learning experiences.

Abstract
The professional conference has been, for many years, the primary tool for continuing education and networking in many professions. Now, however, the economic and environmental costs associated with travel, and the opportunity costs associated with absence from the workplace, compel organizers, trainers and executives to weigh the costs versus the benefits of this form of professional development. Online conferences offer an effective alternative that is economical, environmentally friendly and convenient. These factors position online professional conferences as poised to emerge as a mainstream form of lifelong learning in all professions. This book looks at the elements of effective continuing professional education, the affordances of interactive technologies, and the lessons learned by online conference organizers. It is designed to provide guidance and advice to those wishing to coordinate, sponsor or participate effectively in an online professional development conference.

Abstract
Four stories, told first in English and then in Spanish, explore the imaginative lives of children. The first two tales by Max Tell were originally written in English and have been translated into Spanish by Silvana Goldemberg. The other stories were written by Goldemberg and "interpreted" by Tell, rendering the English and Spanish versions subtly different. "Johnny Small" concerns friendship built on an act of kindness between a very small boy and an enormous boy. "Rodney Scribble" is about a wacky society built around the idea that legible writing is a menace. "Martin, the Brave Prince" shows his aunt what he wants to be when he grows up. In "The Smile Plant," a little girl copes creatively with the loss of a tooth.
