From the Back Cover
This essential new resource offers a practicalpathway for developing 21st century skills while simultaneously strengthening student core subject-area learning. Digital Learning shows teachers how to use research-based practices to strengthen and assess the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) National Education Technology Standards (NETS) for students and teachers. By framing instruction within the language of the ISTE NETS, the common threads of lessons become clear, regardless of subject matter.
Digital Learning includes
Detailed descriptions of each of the NETS, how to teach them, and how assess students to be sure they are meeting these standards
Dozens of activities that integrate the NETS with each content area, including Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Geography
A DVD with graphic organizers, supplemental material to help see how students are progressing, and video interviews with influential educators, such as Tina Rooks, and Doug Johnson
A dedicated website (digitallearningprocess.net) continually updated with new resources and strategies
The strategies have been created to meet the diverse needs of students in a variety of situations, and can stand alone as independent units, or be
used in a cross-disciplinary way.
Praise for Digital Learning
"If we are going to unlock the creativity of the students, we first have to unlock the creativity of the teachers. I don't think there is a way to turn students into expert learners without totally transforming the pedagogical practice. Digital Learning provides the road map and on-ramps for the required transformations of teaching and learning." Dr. David Thornburg, director, Thornburg Center
"Our language about digital technologies is obsolete, because we talk about information technologies (which is so 1980s) and communication technologies (which is so 1990s) when, at this point in history, our media enable creation and collaboration and sharing of knowledge. This empowers active learning in the many different forms Ferdi Serim describes in this book." Dr. Chris Dede, Timothy E. Wirth Professor in Learning Technologies, Harvard University

Educators, from the most traditional to the most daring, will find this book an essential resource on their digital journey. Digital Learning is a much needed overview of what has been learned and the terrain covered over the past three decades. As we ready ourselves for the exploration of Common Core Standards, it is imperative that we take stock in what we've learned from our efforts. Digital Learning is both a road map of well worn pathways and a guide book suggesting some off-the-beaten-trail possibilities.
As an avid backpacker and mountaineer, I wouldn't think of embarking on an adventure without my topographic map, compass and some knowledge about where I'm going and what I might possibly encounter. Digital Learning is such a map and journal of collective educational experience assembled by a veteran digital explorer, Ferdi Serim. Whether you're designing curriculum, planning a new program, or participating with peers in a professional community, Digital Learning gives you big, fundamental insights and practical examples you'll find very useful on your digital learning adventure.
