Teaching in the Digital Age Book Study

PreschoolSpot is pleased to be hosting the second annual summer Book Study Blog Party. The title of our book this year is Teaching in the Digital Age by Brian Puerling.

What is the book about?
[from the publisher]
Teaching in the Digital Age will provide you with developmentally appropriate and effective strategies for using technology to facilitate children’s learning. This comprehensive framework will help you select and use a variety of technology and interactive media tools in your classroom—including digital cameras, audio recorders, webcams, publication and presentation tools, and multi-touch mobile devices.

How does it work?
Beginning June 6 one chapter from the book will be discussed each week on a different blog. We will make an announcement here on PreschoolSpot when each chapter discussion is published to make it easy for you to follow along. If you are going on vacation don’t worry, simply subscribe to the blogs and the discussions will be in your inbox waiting for you when you return.

    Anyway to make this so we can get a certificate for contact hours? This would be perfect for the hours that I need for the technology portion of my teaching license!

    • Vanessa Levin says:

      Hi Cindy,

      That sounds like a great idea but because each state has their own requirements for professional development hours we would have to fill out the paperwork and submit it to each individual state in the US 🙁 If anybody reading this has a better idea we’re open to hearing it 🙂

  2. How do we subscribe to the book study?

    • Vanessa Levin says:

      Hi Susan,

      When you are at preschoolspot.com look up towards the top of the page and click where it says “subscribe by e-mail” then follow the directions to complete your subscription. Hope that helps 🙂

    Can you get this book for a Nook or Kindle?

    • Vanessa Levin says:

      You can ask the publisher if and when it will be available in ebook format, http://www.redleaf.org The book itself was just released this week and ebooks usually follow several weeks after initial publication.

        Isn’t that ironic??? Teaching in the Digital Age isn’t available in a digital format?? I got a little chuckle out of that! : )

        I’ve ordered my hard copy and can’t wait to start– love all of your websites!


  4. Nancy Dawson says:

  5. Alicia Perdue says:

  6. Dorene Bates says:

    I seem to be getting a 403 error when I try to view the Pre-K Pages website. Is her site down? Thanks.

    • Vanessa Levin says:

      Hi Dorene,

      I’m sorry you were not able to access pre-k pages. The site is working, please try again and perhaps try refreshing your browser too. Thanks for your patience and have a great day!
