Reviews

In an era of fake news, screens everywhere, and the latest device, digital literacy is more important than ever for students of all ages. While technology has many benefits, it also has distractions from the traditional classroom and the tried-and-true ways of learning. Adams and Hamm show the research that striking a balance between the old and the new is the best way to create multi-literate students in our increasingly complex world. With sample lesson plans on STEM subjects, technology, literacy, and the arts, Collaboration, Communication, and Critical Thinking is an innovative approach to embracing technology, but sticking to the old foundations and basics of learning. -- Taylor Weinfurter, Youth Services Librarian In their new book, Collaboration, Communication, and Critical Thinking, Adams and Hamm explore he benefits and limitations of using technology from the science classroom to the arts classroom. Providing many examples and learning activities that are ready for use, the authors stress the need for teachers to use student-centered not technology-centered decision making to create a climate of achievement in the classroom. While using the best of technology, teachers are empowered to create environments of change that encourage enthusiasm, energy, teamwork, and creativity. In those environments, students can be guided by parents and teachers to take an active role in their own learning. -- Luann Okel Adams, Wisconsin Teacher Collaboration, Communication, and Critical Thinking analyzes the philosophical underpinnings of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and provides practical approaches and strategies to create transformative learning experiences. This book describes a vision of education that can serve as a catalyst for practitioners interested. In exploring skills and activities that nurture growth mindsets, social learning, inquiry, teamwork, and innovation. It is a must read for those who believe in American philosopher John Dewey's assertion that teachers should not be teaching what to think, but rather how to think. -- Martha Kronholm, professor, Saint Mary's University of Minnesota Thoughtful research-based insight into the importance of carefully integrating digital technology in the classroom to enhance critical thinking and problem-solving across the curricula, without compromising literacy and creative use of language. -- Karen Seyffarth, French Immersion Teacher, Nova Scotia This book truly addresses the vital qualities to be cultivated by teachers and students in a technologically-intensive world. It enlightens us on the cognitive, creative-thinking and communication skills which are key for the 21th century educational environment. It illustrates how communication technologies can be used in the fields of arts and sciences. Adams and Hamm explain how the strengths and opportunities of the digital age can be connected to enhance the teaching profession. Through this enriching text, I have learned how to implement social and collaborative strategies in the classroom. -- Bhavish Ramlochun, Teacher, University of Mauritius, Ebere, Mauritius
