Here is the result of how I crowdsourced a request from Dr. Mary Ann Fitzgerald, my mentor and colleague, at the University of Georgia:
Here's a question that's perfect for you. I'm teaching an Issues class this summer as an elective (M.Ed level). In the past, I've come up with a laundry list of topics and we've explored those.
Another approach might be to choose a single book -- a paradigm shifter sort of book that relates to SLM. Not a textbook. Something like: 1. information + social + technology + education, multiplied by radical. 2. Something we can all read and have some rich discussions about. 3. Preferably available in e-book format :-). 4. TED talkish.
What title would you nominate? Something published quite recently.
