Note: Friends Dr. Dawn Wilson and Dr. Katie Alaniz were kind enough to share a book they authored in collaboration with Joshua Sikora, Digital Media in Today's Classrooms: The Potential for Meaningful Teaching, Learning, and Assessment.

In the space below, I've included some of my take-aways from the book, stuff that struck my fancy in Chapter 6, and included my reflections/comments in square brackets [really? that's unbelievable!]. Feel free to swipe the images highlighting key points and repost them everywhere! Read blog entries relevant to this book. Note that my notes imperfectly capture some of the main ideas in the book. I heartily recommend reading the text!!

How about a simple way to highlight key ideas in assigned student text? Typoramamay fit the bill for iOS device users! Quote Makers, Create! I love collecting quotes, often snapping a photo of my favorite quotes at Buc-ee’s while I’m traveling or jotting them down in my handy notepad. The best part of being out on the road is encountering truisms, as well as listening to K-12 and adult learners share their stories.
