The Pontydysgu team are in Cadiz at ECER 2012 (European Conference for Educational Research). We have been keeping our eyes open for new resources for Taccle 2 teachers and were really impressed by a new book from SAGE publications Using Social Media in the Classroom by Megan Poore. It is packed with practical ideas for classroom teachers together with some useful generic ideas and methodologies that provide a grounded intellectual framework without drifting off into theoretical research.
SAGE were kind enough to give us their pre-publication proof copy of the book which is due out at the end of October. Even better, they are sending us some copies of the book that we can give to Taccle 2 teachers. So if you want to get your hands on one of the best books we have seen recently, all you have to do is send us ONE idea for an e-learning activity we will publish on this site together with your postal address and we’ll send you a copy as soon as we get them. First come, first served!
