The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) has announced the publication of a new book, "Integrated Technologies, Innovative Learning: Insights from the PT3 Program," which offers ideas, approaches, and best practices for training teachers for the future they and their students will face. Edited by Mark Bailey and Steve Rhine, the book is a collection of essays on exemplary Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) projects written by a diverse range of project managers.
Between 1999 and 2004, the PT3 program and its more than 400 projects explored new ways to harness the potential of technology to transform learning and teacher education, according to the ISTE announcement.
With 20 chapters highlighting projects from across the nation, the new book provides stories of transformation at the institutional and individual levels. "Integrated Technologies, Innovative Learning" discusses different models for mentoring and field experience, the big gains possible with partnerships, and the key role of electronic portfolios in evaluating performance and promoting reflective practice.
The book is intended for teacher educators, college of education faculty and administrators, professional development personnel, education researchers, and preservice teachers.
"Integrated Technologies, Innovative Learning" may be purchased online for $35.95 for ISTE members and $39.95 for nonmembers. More information about the book, including the table of contents and a free downloadable excerpt, is available at http://www.iste.org/store.
