Officially launched today (28th January) The Really Useful #EdTechBook is a collection of “experiences, reflections, hopes, passions, expectations, and professionalism of those working with, in, and for the use of technology in education. Not only is it an insight into how, or why, we work with these technologies, it’s about how we as learning professionals got to where we are and how we go forward with our own development.”
Written by practitioners for practitioners the book gives a wide range of perspectives on the adoption, implementation, integration of learning technology and learning technologists in HE today.
I was delighted to be asked to to contribute to this project and have co- authored a chapter “Learning Technologist as Digital Pedagogue” with David Walker from the University of Sussex. You can read more about our collaborative and network approach to writing the chapter in this post.
The book is openly licenced and a PDF version is available to download. As this is a self publishing effort, the costs of the book have been kept to a minimum. Would love to hear if you think this really is a really useful book.
More information about the book, the authors and download/print options are available here.
This slide deck also gives a flavour of the content of the book.
