Authors Who Skype with Classes & Book Clubs (for free!)

I’m Kate Messner, the children’s author and educator who maintains this site. I started it because I’ve found that virtual author visits are a great way to connect authors and readers, and I realize that many schools facing budget troubles don’t have the option of paid author visits. With that in mind, this is a list of authors who offer free 15-20-minute Q and A sessions with classes and book clubs that have finished reading one of their books. As an author, I offer free Skype chats for the following titles: What Is Successful Technology Integration? Technology integration is the use of technology resources -- computers, mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, digital cameras, social media platforms and networks, software applications, the Internet, etc. -- in daily classroom practices, and in the management of a school.

What Is Successful Technology Integration?

Free ebook: “The Digital PIRATE,” tech and PIRATE teaching

I hope you like it! Dave Burgess’s book “Teach Like a PIRATE” has been an eye-opener for me and countless other teachers around the planet. The book demonstrates how to use passion and the art of performance to create unforgettable learning experiences. It includes my favorite part, hooks — practical ideas you can implement in class immediately that can boost student engagement. I took on “The 30 Day Pirate Challenge,” where I tried to incorporate something from the book each day to engage, inspire and entertain my students. As I dig deeper into the book, the techie teacher geek in me keeps asking, “How could technology take these ideas to the next level?” Or, another way to phrase it: “How could I become a digital pirate teacher?” After some brainstorming, I’ve compiled 20 teaching ideas that incorporate an engagement hook from “Teach Like a PIRATE” and a free digital tool.

30 Trends In Education Technology For 2015

iPads are still the standard but other platforms are making headway. That should be fun to watch over the next 3-5 years. Educators are getting better at spotting crap edtech, but waste still abounds. There are even some educators who are against technology in the classroom at all. Schools are getting better at thinking tech-first (not in terms of priority, but design). Apps are getting downright brilliant in spots, but in-app purchasing? Below are 30 entirely subjective but hopefully somewhere close to reality takes on what’s trending up and what’s trending down in education and education technology for 2015 and beyond. Note that this list isn’t an endorsement–meaning this isn’t necessarily the way I think things should be, but rather what they seem to be–at least from my vantage point, right here, right now.
