Educators Online : Preparing Today’s Teachers for Tomorrow’s Digital Literacies
Educators Online: Preparing Today’s Teachers for Tomorrow’s Digital Literacies, fills a significant and glaring need for professional educators—that is, it prepares instructors to become digital- and tech-savvy. However, this book does not only focus on classroom practice and the delivery of instruction, but also on the scholarly and cocurricular benefits of these technologies for the educators.
My book opens with a discussion of what it means to be an educator participating in the Read/Write web. I explore issues of digital epistemologies and ethnographies, and discuss those areas (both personal and professional) that affect how educators present themselves online. Through both anecdotal and scholarly evidence, I suggest methods of bridging the numerous disconnects that occur in the complex relationships between literacies, schooling, learning and teaching. Essentially, my book informs and instructs today’s educators in these tools that are having such marked impact on our shrinking global, networked, educational cultures. These new technologies are not only changing the nature of literacy in contemporary society; they must also affect corresponding changes in the training of our teachers and teacher educators.
