Richard E. Ferdig, Emily Baumgartner, Richard Hartshorne, Regina Kaplan-Rakowski, Chrystalla Mouza, Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE), 2020/06/17


This open access eBook (851 page PDF) is a massive contribution to the literature on the Covid remote learning response. I have not read it, but I don't want to delay passing the link along, because I'm sure there will be something of value for everyone here. From the abstract: "This AACE and SITE-published, open access eBook contains 133 chapters with over 850 pages documenting best practices, strategies, and efforts by teacher educators, professional developers, researchers, and practitioners. It is divided into seven sections that address pedagogy, collaboration, field experiences, preservice education methods, professional development, digital tools, and equity issues. Chapters are presented as innovations with supporting materials that could be easily replicated or studied." Enjoy... and enjoy.... and enjoy...

A corresponding Centre of Excellence in Paris will support the other two themes: Future of Work and Innovation & Commercialization." The GPAI secretariat will be hosted by the OECD.
