Harvard Education Press, May 1, 2014 - Education - 216 pages
"Congratulations. Your school has just purchased a cart housing twenty-four tablets. Your principal wants you to roll it right into your classroom and start innovating—tomorrow.”

So begins this engaging and highly accessible guide for practitioners looking for a systematic way to kick their teaching up a notch by combining education technology with best practices in teaching and learning.

Written by two veteran teacher-trainers, TechnoTeaching provides a clear blueprint that educators of all experience levels can use to challenge themselves and their students over a single school year. Through “stellar units,” “dare-devil missions,” and other activities, the authors show how teachers can progressively transform their classrooms by adding new digital and web tools to meet the specific needs of students.

TechnoTeaching includes planning templates, reflection documents, and other resources, making it immediately usable and indispensable for classroom teachers.
