Format: Paperback
Good teaching has always been hard work; teaching writing, even harder. In Best Ideas for Teaching with Technology, Thomas Daccord and Justin Reich bring new tools to the job. Their classroom-tested ideas are presented with illustrations -- lots of illustrations -- and humor. They offer, for example, practical suggestions for getting more from your word processor. They also explore concept mapping applications and wikis as strategies for empowering young writers. This is a book for those who are new to teaching with technology as well as for veterans. Technology integration just got a little easier.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Peter H. Raymond on August 29, 2008
Format: Paperback
As a teacher, nothing frustrates me more than knowing tools exist, even what the tools are, but not knowing how use them to increase students' learning. Daccord and Reich, both top-notch teachers, have done a superb job of solving this problem through clear but imaginative explanations and suggestions for recruiting the extraordinary possibilities presented by recent developments in technology, especially via the Internet.

Rather than being daunted by all these possibilities, picking just one or two great ideas from this book and folding them into one's teaching practice can have salutary effects on student learning and teacher enthusiasm for new ideas and approaches, and once those become habitual, one can return to dip again into this cornucopia of great ideas, exercises, and activities.

Format: Hardcover
The title of this book says it all. This book provides great background information and simple strategies for teaching WITH technology. As a professional development provider, I often see teachers struggle with how to use technology in their classrooms. Best Ideas for Teaching with Technology not only gives the background knowledge that teachers need, but it also shows teachers how to use technology as a tool to engage students in the classroom. Even better, the book is well-organized and an easy read - a great time saver for all busy teachers!

Format: Hardcover
If you are a teacher or educator looking to develop ideas to utilize technology into your classroom this is a must have book. There are 10 chapters ranging from Enhancing Teaching and Learning with Multimedia to Class Management. Each chapter features one or two tools with specific directions (simply written) on how to use the tool as well as hundred's of web site's that are relevant to education. If you are someone who is looking to take technology into the classroom or want to learn more this is a well written, well researched book. I highly recommend it, you won't be disappointed!

Format: Hardcover
For someone who started teaching in the days of spirit duplicators, long before copiers, computers, and the internet, I found this book to be both useful and very inspiring. It is clearly written, full of clear illustrations, tips, and resources. I've been looking for ways to incorporate more technological tools into my U.S. history course, in ways that further my teaching and my students' understanding. This book provides a clear path to follow. It is, by far, the most practical text on the use of technology in the classroom that I've read. As I work on new course materials and lesson plans, Best Ideas is always close at hand.
