As schools consider books for summer reading, I wanted to plug my own book – Tech with Heart: Leveraging Technology to Empower Student Voice, Ease Anxiety, & Create Compassionate Classrooms. We are primed for really important work in edtech at this moment in time. Teachers have so many tools in their toolbox; the next step will be to think very intentionally about what to keep and what to leave behind. Additionally, as the urgent need to make massive shifts settles, teachers will have time to reflect on what worked in remote and hybrid learning and how to redesign in-class lessons infusing these tools. I hope that Tech with Heart can help inform these next steps.
I have a variety of resources available on my website, including book study questions: techiemusings.com/techwithheart. If your school is interested in additional material, please reach out, and I can hopefully point you to what you’re looking for. Please note that discounts for bulk book purchases are available through my publisher.
One of my biggest goals in Tech with Heart is to share how we can build more equitable and empowering classrooms by leveraging technology to provide platforms for all ideas to shine and amplify every individual’s voice in the room. I appreciate you considering my book for professional development and look forward to the conversations it will spark!
