Classroom Management in the Digital Age
Effective Practices for Technology-Rich Learning Spaces
In this episode, I speak with Heather Dowd, the author of Classroom Management in the Digital Age: Effective Practices for Technology-Rich Learning Spaces (EdTechTeam, 2016). Her book offers a series of structures for teachers beginning to use technology in their classrooms, including procedures, expectations, strategies, and methods for parent communication. We discuss what classroom management looks like in different school contexts as well as the impact of technology on organization, engagement, and community.
She recommends the following books for listeners interested in her work and our conversation:
Kagan Cooperative Learning by Spencer Kagan
Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School by John Medina
The HyperDoc Handbook: Digital Lesson Design Using Google Apps by Lisa Highfill, Kelly Hilton, and Sarah Landis
