    20. 20. Integrating Technology
    21. 21. Integrating Technology How do you include technology in your practice? • Find a tool and figure out how to use it with your students/staff • Think about what you already do with your students/staff and then how technology could deepen or expand on the lesson (POST) • Think of a challenging task and how technology might help 21 21
    22. 22. POST Method • P is People. Know the capabilities of your audience. Know what scaffolding they’ll need. • O is objectives. Pick one. Decide on your objective before you decide on a technology. Then figure out how you will measure it. • S is Strategy. Figure out what will be different after you're done. Imagine you succeed. How will things be different afterwards? Imagine the endpoint and you'll know where to begin. • T is Technology. A community. A wiki. A blog or a hundred blogs. Once you know your people, objectives, and strategy, then you can decide with confidence. 22 The POST Method: A systematic approach to social strategy by Josh Bernoff

    53. 53. How to Get Free E-Books Search for "0.00." This is the oldest trick in the book (pun intended). Simply go to the Barnes and Noble bookstore or the Kindle bookstore and search for "0.00." Your results will yield dozens of free books available for direct download to your device. Swap books with strangers. Some books are equipped with a "lending" feature. Amazon and B&N probably intended that lending would be used among friends, but clever Web sites and let users list their e-books and swap inventory with anyone else. Check out e-books from the library. Ancient as they may seem, libraries are on trend and offer e-books using a service called Overdrive. Here's how to use the service (although the tutorial is intended for Nook owners, the same process applies to Kindle). Find free books online. Many books, especially classics like "Frankenstein," are available under public domain licensing and have been converted into e-books for your reading pleasure. Other license-free titles available include those published under a Creative Commons license. 53 your-kindle-or-nook/
    54. 54. Free Books for E-Readers There are over 1,000,000 titles available for free, and you can find them in these places: • Many Books • Open Library • Project Gutenberg • Google Books Once you've found a book from any of the above sources, download them in MOBI format for Kindle or EPUB for Nook, and manually transfer them from your desktop to your device (connected via USB). 54
