Cool Tech Tools for Lower Tech Teachers: 20 Tactics for Every Classroom
 
 

Make the painless transition from low tech to tech friendly!

Are you struggling to embrace technology that advances at lightning speed? Or are you just plain perplexed? With new developments announced almost on a daily basis, many teachers don′t know where to start. If you′re one of those teachers making the transition to tech—willingly or not—Cool Tech Tools for Lower Tech Teachers is the resource for you. In understandable language, it describes how exactly you can use tools like webquests, wikis, social networking apps, and podcasts to enhance your lessons and keep kids engaged.

William Bender and Laura Waller put technology within your reach by:

  • Framing each tool in the context of what you need to know 
  • Defining the tool in easy-to-understand language; there′s no tech-speak
  • Guiding you through implementation step by step
  • Providing sample lesson plans to get you started
  • Explaining how some tools can also be used for professional development

With Cool Tech Tools for Lower Tech Teachers, Bender and Waller prove that technology can be painless and productive. What′s more, you′ll even come to love it!

"This book provides a wealth of ideas for teachers who would like to use technology but do not know where to begin. Each chapter provides a lens into specific categories of use and associated websites."
—Bena Kallick, Educational Consultant

"This book is an excellent resource for both new and experienced educators looking to make the most of Web 2.0 resources for teaching and learning. It can be used individually, but I think it would be most beneficial (and fun!) to use in small groups of educators as they support and surprise one another with their explorations and discoveries."
—Chris Toy, Educational Consultant, Learning Capacity Unlimited
Graduate School Instructor, University of Southern Maine
