Those who are pressed by their own enthusiasm or external forces to improve teaching and learning with technology - to begin teaching more online.

You can also support us indirectly by purchasing books from Amazon via links in our recommended reading list or shop using this AmazonSmile link. Amazon will then make a donation to the TLT Group.

Cognitive Science Book Discussion Series
The Cognitive Science book discussion series concludes on January 9th as we discuss the 3rd and final book in our series. FICTION: Sloan, Robin (2013) Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, Picador, New York, NY.
It's a novel, but it deals (colorfully and rivetingly) with the clash between so-called Old Knowledge (books) and New Knowledge (internet and other virtual forms of communication). Not only that, it's a great read--funny, swashbuckling, and serious by turns.
We encourage you to access the book and read it prior to the session. Of course, you can always join the conversation and later read the book. Purchase the book Here
