Practical help for using a myriad of available digital tools to transform time-tested models of teaching in order to make 21st century learning more efficient, effective, and engaging


This book is focused on helping educators design effective instruction that successfully addresses the individual and shared learning needs of the diverse population of students in today’s dynamic, fast-paced, technology-driven, global society. In it the authors show when and how to use the unprecendented variety of powerful teaching resources available, and how to coordinate their use to best prepare students for the education and workforce demands in their futures.


The authors emphasize the teacher’s role as an educational designer who approaches instructional planning with intention, uses knowledge of specialized systematic processes to identify and frame instructional challenges related to learners and content, and competently addresses those challenges by skillfully applying a broad repertoire of instructional models, strategies, and technologies.


Part I explains the ways in which functioning as an educational designer leads to more successful teaching, and Part II presents 10 powerful, proven models of teaching and demonstrates how they can be transformed for new relevance in the digital era and used to address the challenges of 21st century teaching.
