There are several ways to glean new information about what technologies are available for use in the classroom and how best to use them, but some of the best resources I have found are lists. Technology tools lists, article lists, app lists, and even book lists. The blog Instructional Tech Talk recently released their list of the bestselling educational technology books from 2014. They cover a range of topics, from general educational technology to blended and flipped learning to digital leadership. Some of the books are geared towards elementary and high school teachers, but with a lot of librarians wondering how they can better flip their courses to reach students both in their one shots and outside of that hour and a half, there are lots of resources. One of the best resources is Flipping 2.0: Practical Strategies for Flipping Your Class. And one of my favorite books about education made the list-Salman Khan’s (from Khan Academy!) The One World Schoolhouse: Education Reimagined. Even though the book was published several years ago, the premise still rings true today-how do we bring education to more people across the globe? There are many books, articles, and resources out there to help you bring technology into the classroom-if you have questions how you can do it, let us know!
Have you read anything this year that you’d add to this list? Let us know in the comments.
