One phrase that possesses a unique ability to elicit multiple, strong, and varied emotions from all stakeholders in the world of education is Educational Technology. There are all sorts of theories, arguments both for and against, and mandates dealing with the use of technology in the classroom. Educational Technology: Big Pictures and Practical Applications for the Classroom is a first of its kind in that it is looking at the integration of technology into the classroom from the perspective of an educator. The goal of this book is to be more than just a textbo
Students learn when they are actively engaged and thinking in class. The activities in this book are the primary classroom materials for teaching Anatomy and Physiology, using the POGIL method. The result is an "I can do this" attitude, increased retention, and a feeling of ownership over the material.
Kendall Hunt is excited to partner with The POGIL Project to publish materials in a variety of disciplines that are designed for use in active learning, student-centered classrooms.
