YU2.0 FEATURED BLOG
I shamelessly admit that I have learned a lot from Dummies books. Before the proliferation of YouTube videos, if I wanted to learn about anything and everything I would check out the Dummies book from the library. I have learned much from Pregnancy for Dummies, Photoshop CS6 for Dummies, and Moodle for Dummies. I have borrowed Guitar for Dummies for my 12 year old son, my husband has perused How to Fix Everything for Dummies, and my daughter just reserved Living Gluten-Free for Dummies. My newest find is iPad in Education for Dummies.
The author, Sam Gliksman, an expert in technology and educational reform, wrote an easy to follow, well organized, clear book for educators. Having your school approve the 1:1 iPad initiative is just the beginning. Teachers need the tools on how to seamlessly integrate the easy to use touch technology into the classroom. “The teacher does not have to be the expert in the room. 21st century learning is about empowering the students with technology, and letting them create and innovate.” As we teach ourselves iPad apps or let our students guide us, I have included a few that I have found useful for the blended learning environment.
Has any expert written Blended Learning for Dummies, or should I add that task to my bucket list?
