Technology, Change, and Assessment in the 21st-Century ClassroomTara Seale, a high school english teacher just southwest of Littlerock, Arkansas made her twitter learning network aware of this book this week. She has shaped one of her proposals for the upcoming school year on the research and examples from the book.
I'm always looking for writing resources and wanted to learn more about this book so after a little digging I was able to find the Teachers Teaching Teachers Blog on the EdTechTalk channel.
Talk about added value! The 3T folks have produced a three part podcast series about the book. It only took me listening to the first episode to convince me to buy the book. The book has a few editors [interviewed in episode 1] but basically the book is written by teachers all over America.
The writers are teachers who use technology in some interesting and clever ways to enhance writing in the classroom.
