The K-12 Educational Technology Handbook
This textbook provides a set of high-quality resources to university educational technology courses. All chapters are written by professionals in the field, including university researchers, teacher educators, and classroom teachers.
The book in its entirety and each chapter can be freely accessed, downloaded, printed, and remixed. Professors of educational technology courses can select the chapters that will work best for them when creating course packets, and preservice and inservice teachers can use relevant chapters for trainings and professional development purposes.
Drs. Royce Kimmons and Anne Ottenbreit-Leftwich are two of the leaders in the country in the area of technology integration for preservice teachers. This book is designed with these preservice teachers in mind, and as such the writing is clear and jargon-free, and focused on practical, pedagogical, and theoretical tools teachers can use in the classroom. Combined with strong multimedia elements, this is an excellent resource for teaching technology integration.
This book has been indispensable in my instructional technology courses. Each semester, my students thank me for these high quality resources that they don't have to pay for.
