Connected from the Start
Global Learning in the Primary Grades

Primary teacher Kathy Cassidy makes a compelling case for connecting our youngest students to the world, using the transformative power of Internet tools and technologies. Her well-balanced text presents both the rationale for connecting students “from the start” and the how-to details and examples teachers need to involve children in grades K-3 in using blogs, Twitter, Skype and other social media to become true global learners. This highly interactive digital book features dozens of color photos, six student-centered videos, and hundreds of live links to helpful downloads and outside resources.


The Connected Educator
Learning and Leading in a Digital Age

The time has come to reject incremental change and to radically transform education to fully prepare students for life in the 21st century. The Connected Educator is about the need for teachers in the Digital Age to exploit the transformative potential of emerging technologies on behalf of their students and their own professional growth.
