  9. Teaching Minds: How Cognitive Science Can Save Our Schools

    From grade school to graduate school, from the poorest public institutions to the most affluent private ones, our educational system is failing students.

  10. Interactive Whiteboards in the Primary Classroom

    After years of helping others teach with a variety of interactive whiteboards (IWBs), Tony DeMonte found that, without a doubt, whiteboards can increase student engagement and motivation. But too often he encountered teachers who were unsure of how best to incorporate their IWBs in teaching and who ended up using them as glorified chalkboards, or worse, not at all. DeMonte wrote this book to help those educators grasp the full potential of this powerful tool. No matter what kind of IWB you have, interactive projector included, you will benefit from DeMonte’s classroom-tested insight and advice.
