While not a book specifically about education, this fascinating look at "how our minds don't work the way we think they do" will hopefully capture your attention as it has mine, as well as giving us a chance to think about its implications for education, both in terms of classroom practice and for larger educational policy. http://www.learncentral.org/event/142217
(Future of Education Series) Thu 9 Jun 08:00PM New York / Fri 10 Jun 12:00AM GMT / Fri 10 Jun 10:00AM Sydney. Steve Hargadon. Steve hosts a live and interactive Future of Education with Troy Hicks, co-author of Because Digital Writing Matters: Improving Student Writing in Online and Multimedia Environments and author of The Digital Writing Workshop. We'll talk about how to apply digital writing skills effectively in the classroom, since many students may be adept at text messaging and communicating online but do not know how to craft a basic essay. Troy will also discuss how best to integrate new technologies into writing instruction. http://www.learncentral.org/node/162989
