Best Practices for Teaching with Emerging Technologies

by Michelle Pacansky-Brock

Pacansky-Brock has written an excellent guide to bringing the teaching paradigm into the current century, in a way that embraces the perspective of students (of all ages) and has been proved effective time and time again.

I could hardly envision a better introduction to using emerging technologies in the classroom in a single self-contained resource. While this book recounts a personal journey, it also very well organized, and provides structured guidance. These experienced insights can help guide any educator through the maze of Internet tools, to discover many ways in which they can facilitate a fundamental shift in student engagement and learning.

There are various themes that arise repeatedly in the book, and many are spoken to with a straightforward eloquence. In this article, I share some of the often simple yet uniformly powerful doctrines offered and verbally illustrated in Parts 1 to 3 of the book …
