Overview

Grounded in constructivist teachings, this book will help teachers demonstrate ways that technology can be used to engage and support meaningful learning.

Much different than the last edition, the 3rd edition of this popular text is now organized around learning processes that engage and support different learning activities such as investigating, exploring, writing, modeling, community buildiing, communicating, designing, visualizing, and assessing. Rather than the reader learning how to use specific technologies this book demonstrates for the reader how learners can use different technologies for meaningful learning.
