Blog Tour: Engaging the Eye Generation

February 25th, 2009

Engaging the Eye Generation takes a fresh approach to infusing twenty-first century skills into the classroom. In addition to practical examples of lessons and units, Johanna shares her own learning process, which will allow the reader to easily adopt the best practices outlined in the book. Her attention to sound pedagogical practices, with an emphasis on both visual and information literacy, will support teachers as they move their students toward the skills they will need to succeed!—Kathy Schrock, Creator of Kathy Schrock’s Guide for Educators and Administrator for Technology for the Nauset Public School

Library specialist and National Board Certified Teacher Johanna Riddle draws on twenty-five years of education experience to show teachers how to update the curriculum for twenty-first-century learning in her new book, Engaging the Eye Generation.

“We have to link real learning to real lives,” Johanna writes in the Introduction to her book. “If we genuinely want to reach our students where they are, show them how to apply technology meaningfully and substantively, and encourage independent, cricial, and creative thinking, we must be prepared to help them navigate life in the twenty-first century.”

    We have to continually ask students to critically evaluate their info sources. Here’s a recently rediscovered relic from my early days as a teacher. High School “Media Studies” circa 1983 (mainly TV – and all very McLuhan).

    Ignore my bad acting!
