The classroom teacher’s technology survival guide.
Doug Johnson. Hoboken, NJ: Jossey-Bass, 2012.
Starting with thinking about the ‘big picture’ of technology use in schools and some basic questions and answers about computers, software, and networking, the book outlines practical ways teachers can use computers, the Internet, digital cameras, and other technology tools. Includes strategies to enhance current educational practices and to create project-based units, practical advice on handling potential distractions technologies may cause, and dealing with issues of safe and appropriate use. While this is written primarily for K to 12 teachers, there is lots of information useful for adult literacy practitioners.
