Reviews

"It's a fact that not just our children, but all of us are global learners. So, equipping global educators who are comfortable navigating rapidly shifting digital platforms is vital. Mark Barnes cogently shows this in 5 Skills for the Global Learner, where the emphasis is on building digital skills and digital literacy. This book is a great addition to the Connected Educator's toolkit."

-- Homa S. Tavangar, Author, Growing Up Global (Random House) and The Global Education Toolkit for Elementary Learners (Corwin)

"Educators, parents, and businesses around the world wonder if we are preparing today's youth for the challenges they will face tomorrow in our interconnected world. Both new and experienced teachers will appreciate these 5 essential skills that encourage communication and collaboration throughout the digital world. As a teacher and advocate of global education, I believe these resources and tips launch the foundation our students need for the 21st century."

-- Becky Morales, Author of The Global Education Toolkit for Elementary Learners and founder of kidworldcitizen.org
"As of now there are about 20 books in the Corwin Connected Educator Series, a seemingly ever-growing set of titles masterminded by Peter DeWitt and Corwin Press. Each book is short enough to be read in one sitting, which makes the collection ideal for book studies and professional development, both during the summer and throughout the school year. Also, each paperback is authored by one or two educators who speak (and blog, tweet, etc.) with a credible voice in the world of connected education. Some of the topics include:
  • Flipped leadership
  • Tools for connecting educators, parents, and communities
  • Blogging for educators
  • Best practices for establishing a makerspace
  • Tools to connect and empower teachers

Finally, all of the authors are active on social media, and they regularly present at local conferences, which helps in bringing to life the contents of these books."

-- Ross Cooper, Supervisor of Instructional Practice K-12
