Inspiring Educators Who Inspire Future Leaders

Book Series for the Digital Age

Over dinner this week, a friend asked if I knew anything about the Corwin Connected Educator Series. I didn’t but I was intrigued by what she told me so I went online and discovered an interesting list of books recommended within this series. Each book is about seventy pages and comes in “both paperback and electronic formats.” According to the series editor, Peter DeWitt, the goal of each book is “to help educators improve classroom practice and educational leadership in the digital world.”  I think it is great that the first set of books cover a range of topics related to the topic of digital literacy. I am especially interested in The Relevant Educator, Teaching the iStudent, The Power of Branding, and Flipped Leadership Doesn’t Mean Reinventing the Wheel. Check out the complete list below:

  • The Relevant Educator: How Connectedness Empowers Learning, by Tom Whitby and Steven Anderson
  • Flipped Leadership Doesn’t Mean Reinventing the Wheel, by Peter DeWitt
  • The Edcamp Model: Powering Up Professional Learning, by The Edcamp Foundation
  • Teaching the iStudent: A Quick Guide to Using Mobile Devices and Social Media in the K-12 Classroom, by Mark Barnes
  • Connected Leadership: It’s Just a Click Away, by Spike Cook
  • All Hands on Deck: Tools for Connecting Educators, Parents, and Communities, by Brad Currie
  • Empowered Schools, Empowered Students: Creating Connected and Invested Learners, by Pernille Ripp
  • The Power of Branding: Telling Your School’s Story, by Tony Sinanis and Joseph Sanfelippo
