As a teacher, I found this resource to be extremely helpful for teaching both adults and children online. It is packed with practical examples, tools and resources for online teaching to a variety of audiences. It describes how to effectively use social media for teaching, and shares helpful online tools and resources for teaching. It made my job so much easier. I highly recommend this resource for any teacher - especially those exploring the world of e-learning, online teaching and using social media to aid instruction.

HASH(0x9db7c894) out of 5 stars Not just for literacy teachers April 18 2012
By Lucy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I volunteer with youth in an after-school homework club. I found this resource to be very helpful and useful. It gave me a lot of ideas about websites and online tools to try with the young people I work with. Kids these days do everything online, so incorporating visual learning, games, videos, etc. is much more engaging than doing math drills from a textbook. Thanks for pulling so much good information together in one package!

HASH(0x9db7c8e8) out of 5 stars Terrific resource! April 11 2012
By Michel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
As a volunteer tutor, I was not sure how to respond to student requests to do more learning online. Digital Discoveries has been very useful with providing me with ideas, websites and practical how-to advice. My students have enjoyed many of the websites we've visited, and they are eager to keep exploring and learning new digital skills. Thanks for such a helpful and clearly-written guide!
