  3. Inspiring Student Empowerment: Moving Beyond Engagement, Refining Differentiation

    Searching for the golden ticket to teaching and learning? You won’t find one here - you’ll find many. You’ll find the right one for you. A one-size-fits-all approach to teaching doesn’t work. Empowering students through personalised learning does. Far from being another teaching fad, empowering students through personalised learning can increase equity, encourage self-directed learning and improve outcomes for all students. Inspiring student empowerment shows you how to out this vision into practice with strategies, frameworks, examples, suggestions, templates and tools. Each chapter has discussion questions and a link to a video where the author shares more information for reflection and further exploration.

  4. Rev Up Robotics: Real-World Computational Thinking in the K–8 Classroom

    Rev up robotics shows educators how to begin incorporating robotics in tandem with computational thinking into content area lessons or electives. Part 1 covers the basics, defining robotics and sharing real-world applications along with how to teach foundational skills for computational thinking and computer science. Part 2 shows robotics in practice within the context of content areas and features lesson plans mapped to academic and technology standards, including the ISTE Standards and the Computer Science Teacher Association Standards. Part 3 offers advice on pedagogy and teaching strategies backed by research from the learning sciences, and shares approaches to teaching robotics using project-based learning or as part of after-school clubs or robotics competitions.

  5. Transform Your K-5 Math Class: Digital Age Tools to Spark Learning

    Instead of drill-and-practice apps and worksheets, what if technology enabled exploration of mathematics concepts? Instead of screens for disconnected individual learning, what if technology fostered mathematical discourse and collaboration? Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching mathematics, what if we used technology to differentiate to meet students’ diverse needs? Technology has the power to support the teaching and learning of mathematics content at all grade levels, but the presence of technology is insufficient unless it’s paired with effective teaching practices and meaningful content. This book poses and unpacks the above questions and many more, with detailed classroom examples to illustrate practical strategies for integrating technology in the F-5 classroom.

  9. Educating and Raising Boys

    Modern education is failing our boys. Educating and raising boys challenges society’s war on boys and boyishness and encourages educators and parents to expand their understanding of the male brain to better support the boys in their lives. By examining the behaviour of boys from a neuroscientific standpoint and how the hardwiring in their brains influences the way they learn, author Michael Nagel challenges readers to reassess how we currently engage with boys physically, academically, emotionally and spiritually. Rather than expect boys to change, readers will learn how to best adapt their own behaviour to ensure they are allowing boys to flourish.
