It Time to Throw Out the Textbooks and Not Just the Paper Ones!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For 150 years, textbooks have ruled classrooms. They were the only practical means of bringing together all of the information for teaching a subject. 1:1 & BYOD now provide 24/7 access to immense store of knowledge. There is no reason to be restrained by the one size fits all aggregation of knowledge called textbooks. It's time to move to collaborative learning, active research, evaluation of sources and use of primary source materials.
