“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.

A Kid’s Guide to Creating Web Pages for Home and School is designed for those who have grown up with computers but who have never had the chance to create their own web sites. Written by a kid for kids, this book leads students step-by-step through the basic functionalities of HTML, all with an inquisitive, friendly tone that encourages experimentation.

11. Making Profit with Bitcoin

Release date: Jun 16, 2014

Read Review
Prologue

There are a few books about Bitcoin and as I can say every single one of them is worth reading. But there are just a few books which focus on people who use Bitcoin in their daily life. You have to search in online message boards and internet forums if you want to read about their success stories. One of them might be your workmate, friend or neighbor.

It is unfortunate that these stories are not well-known because they are truly inspiring. They show what is possible when we use Bitcoin and the many ways to increase your capital.

The search for stories of Bitcoin users showed me many and perse people experiences. Some of them were real while some of them were fabricated but every single story brought the realization that we are on the first steps with Bitcoin. There are just so many possibilities and many of them were new and exciting ideas.

The last months I spent researching for this book were really awesome. I learned a lot about crypto-currencies, its possible applications and above anything else great stories about people. Therefore I want to thank everyone who has shared their very own personal success stories. It was such a wonderful time conversing in chat rooms, making conference calls and sometimes meeting in person. I was excited about every single story and the results from using Bitcoin.

In this book you can read great success stories from real people and you can have an idea of all the things that are really possible if you integrate Bitcoin in your life or in your business. Of course there are stories from accidental success too but there are also people who gave this new way of payment a chance and believed in the community.

The people who used Bitcoin as a form of payment or invest in it are my heroes because they help to push Bitcoin forward as a real alternative to established forms of payment.

Also I want to say thanks to all my friends who helped me to find those peoples and stories. Without your passion this book will never be written!
