Free Book: Teaching in the Connected Learning Classroom: The Digital Media + Learning Research Hub Report Series on Connected Learning

I just love being on Twitter. Today I saw a fellow educator tweet that the "Teaching in the Connected Learning Classroom: The Digital Media + Learning Research Hub Report Series on Connected Learning" book is available for free as a PDF or 99 cents as an ebook. It's from the "National Writing Project" and "was edited by a group of National Writing Project educators and takes examples of practice that teachers have shared online—at the NWP Digital Is website—and curates them into a larger collection." Although I haven't read it yet, I thought that it would be good to pass it along to anyone else who is interested. I'm going to download it onto my iPad so I can check it out.

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
