  • Completely updated to align with the 2017 ISTE Standards for Educators, the third edition includes new content related to personalized learning, blended and online learning, design thinking, computational thinking (including using coding activities in the classroom), maker spaces, instructional design as both process and product and student data privacy.

  • Content from the second edition is expanded to include a greater focus on both developing a problem-solving culture to engage students in complex problem solving and on authentic learning in support of deeper learning. The authors also place more emphasis on student-directed learning strategies and approaches, on innovative digital learning environments such as virtual and online learning contexts and on facilitating online and face-to-face discussions.

  • Now available with MindTap Education to power students to become classroom-ready, reflective teachers. MindTap Education puts learning theory into practice to drive deeper concept application using video case exercises and rich scenario applications. Plus – as students work through MindTap, they are continually building their career e-portfolio in Pathbrite.

  • As the only educational technology text organized around the 2017 Standards for Educators from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), this edition is completely updated to align with the standards.

  • Twelve chapters cover aspects of integrating technology across K-12 classrooms in general. In addition, four appendices examine scenarios of technology-enabled, student-directed learning for specific contexts and subject areas as well as special issues related to technology use (e.g., assistive technologies).

  • Each chapter includes: reference to the ISTE standards addressed in the chapter, learning objectives and suggested portfolio activities to document students' progress toward meeting the ISTE standards. In addition, bold-faced terms within each chapter indicate key words that are defined in the glossary and listed at the end of the chapter.

  • Students learn practical tips and insights gained from hundreds of teachers in technology-enabled learning environments. For example, more than 30 Stories from Practice (two to three per chapter) present real-life case studies, anecdotes, interviews and vignettes that show future teachers the ways technology has been successfully integrated into different classrooms and content areas.

  • Tech Tools and Tips provide brief descriptions or examples of the latest technology tools, trends and strategies that are important to consider when planning technology integration.

  • Activities empower readers to become self-directed learners who can make informed decisions regarding the use of technology throughout their teaching careers. For instance, the GAME Plan presents self-directed learning activities featuring four steps for building knowledge of technology integration (Set Goals, Take Action, Monitor and Evaluate and Extend). Other self-directed learning activities in Apply to Practice boxes prompt students to apply concepts from the chapter to practical teaching problems or to investigate topics in more depth.
