Hacking Digital Learning Strategies : 10 Ways to Launch Edtech Missions in Your Classroom
Why in the age of the most powerful education technology ever known do studies often suggest that technology integration in school is not improving student achievement?
Technology is less about the tools and more about the strategy
In Hacking Digital Learning Strategies, international EdTech presenter and NAPW Woman of the Year Shelly Sanchez Terrell demonstrates the power of EdTech Missions--lessons and projects that inspire learners to use web tools and social media to innovate, research, collaborate, problem-solve, campaign, crowd fund, crowdsource, and publish.
EdTech Missions empower teachers and learners
One of the first truly connected educators, Shelly Sanchez Terrell, gracefully aligns tech tools and social media with strategies and concepts.
Not only does Terrell demonstrate EdTech missions that solve everyday education problems, she provides clear, detailed steps, examples, and templates for overcoming obstacles that may arise in any tech-driven classroom.
