Digital Approaches to Writing

FullSizeRenderThere have been some exciting writing projects going on at UWCSEA, which my colleague Dave Caleb and I really believe deserve a wider audience. This prompted us to begin writing a multi-touch book called Digital Approaches to Writing, which is now available on the iTunes Bookstore.

The book focuses on why we need to include digital approaches in a balanced writing programme, and highlights two projects we have worked with to incorporate digital approaches in the writing process. It is packed with tutorial videos and templates so teachers can adapt and modify as needed. We plan to add more chapters through the coming year.

As is our custom, the book is FREE, so please share!

If so, then my most recent (FREE) multi-touch book, Design Secrets Revealed, can help!

It will take you step-by-step through each design principle, and provide you with examples and suggestions to help guide the teaching process for your students.

I would love your feedback, so please let me know if you find it useful.

Coaching for Digital Literacy

Coaching for Digital LiteracyA little over a year ago, I collaborated with a group of international school teachers in the technology coaching field to create a multi-touch book called Coaching for Digital Literacy. See the blurb below:

Coaching for Digital Literacy is an emerging field where educators are supported in developing their pedagogy around learning with digital tools. This book is a collaborative effort by experienced Digital Literacy Coaches in international schools that will serve as an invaluable resource for those already in a similar role as well as people who are considering this field.

Filled with practical suggestions and case studies, this book aims to arm Digital Literacy Coaches with proven skills and techniques to support learners.

It was wonderful to be a part of this process, together with Andrew McCarthy, Clint Hamada, Jeff Plaman and Louise Phinney, and I’m very pleased to be able to share it with you.
