  1. Learning First, Technology Second in Practice: New Strategies, Research and Tools for Student Success

    Students’ attention levels are high when they use digital devices, but how can we move them to an equally high level of commitment to their learning tasks? Author Liz Kolb’s extensive research into this question led to the development of the Triple E Framework, in which the learning goal - not the tool - is the most important element of a given lesson. Understanding how students learn is built into the framework, which is designed to help teachers make strategic technology choices and instructional decisions based on the learning goal and the science of learning. This book extends and deepens the teaching in Kolb’s bestselling book Learning first, technology second.

  2. The Perfect Blend: A Practical Guide to Designing Student-Centered Learning Experiences

    Many blended learning initiatives start from the top down and are designed for specific populations or make drastic changes to a school’s learning structure. But any F-12 classroom teacher can find ways to leverage blended learning, regardless of the constructs of their learning environment. All they need is a willingness to rethink their role in the classroom - moving from content deliverer to architect of learning. In The perfect blend, you’ll learn how to create a ‘homemade recipe’ for effective blended learning for your students. Follow along as author Michele Eaton shows you how to embrace the flexibility of blended learning to take an active role as a designer of learning, while helping your students become advocates for their education.

  7. STEM-Rich Maker Learning: Designing Equity with Youth of Color

    In recent years, maker-centred learning has emerged in schools and other spaces as a promising new phase of STEM education reform. With a sharp focus on equity, the authors investigate community-based STEM-making programs to determine whether, and how, they can address the educational needs of youth of colour. The authors explore what it means for youth to engage in making with the explicit goal of addressing injustices in their lives. The text features longitudinal ethnographic data and compelling examples that show how youth of colour from low-income backgrounds innovate and make usable artefacts to improve their lives and their communities. This book is essential reading for STEM educators in both formal and informal educational settings.
