“Using technology doesn’t mean that we throw out those strategies that we’ve found to be successful with students,” write Katie Muhtaris and Kristin Ziemke. “It’s not the tools-it’s what we do with them that counts.

Katie and Kristin start with our most important educational goals-literacy, independence, and critical thinking-and helps you connect them to the technology available in your classroom or school. You’ll help students dig into texts, research their questions, and create powerful learning communities by using digital tools effectively, responsibly, and in combination with trusted artifacts and print resources.

Amplify does exactly what the title implies. “When introducing technological tools, we often apply the same practices and strategies we use in our daily teaching, but amplify their power with technology,” write Katie and Kristin. “We model what we want students to do with the technology, guide them to try it out with us, provide time for practice, then share as a class.” They help amplify your literacy curriculum with lessons and guidance for:

  • explicitly teaching kids how to be effective digital readers and thinkers
  • giving students practice with closely reading images, infographics, and video
  • emphasizing student ownership and creativity

Whether you are in a 1:1 school, want to squeeze everything you can out of the one device in your classroom, or your school is encouraging you to use more digital tools, read Amplify. You’ll discover how to gradually release responsibility to empower students as you-and your students-make the most of any technology.

Find in Library
Read Review
Infants and toddlers-the so?called “touchscreen generation”-are living in a screen mediasaturated world. They are the target market for ever?growing numbers of apps, TV shows, electronic toys, and e?books. Making sense of the complex issues associated with screen media in the lives of children under 3 can be challenging for the adults who care for them. There is a strong need among teachers (and parents) of infants and toddlers for guidance related to the appropriate role of screen media in early care and education. Unlike most other books about technology in early childhood, this book focuses specifically on infants and toddlers. It explores why and how infant and toddler teachers need to be techwise in order to understand the implications of screenmedia for children’s learning and development. The book serves as a single, accessible resource to relevant research findings from the fields of pediatric medicine, child development, developmental psychology, social and behavioral sciences, and brain science. It provides infant/toddler teachers with a comprehensive approach and strategies to guide their decisionmaking and promote practices that are evidence?based, family?centered, culturally responsive, and collaborative. It is a call for teachers to think carefully and act wisely when making decisions about screen media-both the technology that they are encountering now and the technology they will encounter in the future-in order to optimize the learning and healthy development of infants and toddlers.

Read Review
Meet the little dot that lives inside your computer. When you have switched it off, he takes the opportunity to visit his friend, the Duchess of Amalfi. He whizzes through cyberspace to her place for tea. Sometimes he is full of ink and wobbly, and sometimes he isn’t. There are soldiers in white uniforms at the bottom of the hill, that he likes to cover in ink?and then he dances with them, because he is ashamed of himself. He’s pretty good at dancing?as long as he doesn’t wiggle he won’t make a single blot. Ralph Steadman is the award-winning illustrator of both adult and children’s books, including That’s My Dad, The Grapes of Ralph, America, and No Room to Swing a Cat.
