M Saitoh – 1st expert on this subject based on the ideXlab platform

  • proactive business performance management in the Book Distribution industry
    International Conference on e-Business Engineering, 2005
    Co-Authors: K Fujiwara, A Koide, M Saitoh

    Abstract:

    This paper presents a feasibility study of proactive business performance management based on monitoring data for the Japanese Book market. By using two years of such data, we developed three types of forecasts. We tested them with simulations to show how prediction-based Book Distribution can improve the Book business

  • The Imagination Library Program and Kindergarten Readiness Evaluating the Impact of Monthly Book Distribution
    Journal of Applied Social Science, 2016
    Co-Authors: Frank Ridzi, Monica R Sylvia, Xiaofen Qiao, Jeff Craig

    Abstract:

    Literature suggests that reading to children can have a significant impact on their early literacy development and long-term school performance. We examine whether consistent participation (i.e., three or more years) in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library (DPIL), a Book Distribution program that provides one Book per month to children ages birth through five, is associated with higher kindergarten readiness. This study examines 2,731 incoming kindergartners in the Syracuse City School District in 2013 and 2014 using the AIMSweb Letter Naming Fluency (LNF) test to assess kindergarten readiness. LNF is frequently identified as the best single indicator of risk for reading failure and has been shown to have a strong ability to predict future reading, vocabulary, and language development. Examining both the entire population and propensity score matched groups, we find that a significantly higher percentage of those consistently participating in DPIL were considered as ready for kindergarten. This difference r…

  • Exploring the Literacy Practices of Refugee Families Enrolled in a Book Distribution Program and an Intergenerational Family Literacy Program
    Early Childhood Education Journal, 2015
    Co-Authors: Sunita Singh, Monica R Sylvia, Frank Ridzi

    Abstract:

    This ethnographic study presents findings of the literacy practices of Burmese refugee families and their interaction with a Book Distribution program paired with an intergenerational family literacy program. The project was organized at the level of Bronfenbrenner’s exosystem (in Ecology of human development . Cambridge, Harvard University Press, 1979 ) to effect a change at the immediate level of the microsytem (i.e., the child’s home life). These two programs–Imagination Library and Storycircles–were organized by the local Literacy Coalition in a Central New York community in the United States in order to assist the refugee families to transition into their new sociocultural context and increase their involvement in the school-based education of their children. Participant observations and interviews with parents and program providers indicated that, while the family literacy practices mostly centered on oral traditions, participation in the two programs led to the familiarity and use of print-based forms of literacy. Additionally, parents reported an interaction with Books that were reaching their homes and consciously modeling the shared reading practices demonstrated by the program providers. The linguistic and cultural barriers are discussed in light with the pedagogical implications of the study in finding ways to provide culturally responsive instruction.
