Check out these 3 new books :

EXPlore like a pirate: Gamification and game-inspired course design to engage, enrich and elevate your learners (Micheal matera, 2015).

  • From page 7: “Gamification is possible in any classroom because creativity is the wind that powers the sails. … You will learn to create opportunities for students to explore, practice, and embody skills like confidence, focus, resilience, dependability, curiosity and empathy while working collaboratively towards a common goal.”

What connected educators do differently (Whitaker, Casa,Zoul, 2015).

  • From page 131: “To gain access to the best ideas in education today – and to share your own voice, offering ideas that you have seen work – you must be connected beyond your immediate network of colleagues”.

Using social media in the classroom; A best practice guide (Megan Poore, 2016)

  • From page xi: “it covers everything from theory and pedagogy, to everyday practice; it describes the ‘big stuff’ of blogs, wikis, social networks, and podcasting – and how those things can support longer-term classroom projects – and it details the ‘small stuff’ that can give you quick classroom wins, such as instant messaging, Pintrest, Twitter, mind mapping, and document sharing.”

TDSB teachers can borrow books by contacting the library at (416) 395-8289 or professionallibrary@tdsb.on.ca or by reserving the books in the catalogue               http://bit.ly/PLbookcat (remember to login befomer you click on reserve).
