Acclaimed author Sam Gliksman will show you “40 Simple Ways” to engage your students with creative projects - whether you’re a new teacher or experienced educator, whether you teach younger or older children, and whether you have one device or many.
But this isn’t a book about devices. It’s about using those devices to create a culture of passionate learning in the classroom. Create exciting green screen videos, compose multimedia eBooks, produce old-time radio shows, document and explain experiments and much more. All of the projects come with precise step-by-step instructions, tips and a list of recommended apps for iPads, smartphones, and Chromebooks. Many projects also include detailed instructional videos that make it easy to get started right away.
40 Simple Ways. Transform your classroom today.
