We are thrilled to release three books that provide teachers with the skills required to address the growing divide between traditional skills and Web 2.0 skills.

Solution Tree, a leading educational professional development company, has released three new books designed to help teachers gain the digital knowledge they need to reach today’s students.

Once students get inside the classroom and are forced to power down, they tune out. In Creating a Digital-Rich Classroom, author Meg Ormiston helps teachers create lesson plans that utilize Web 2.0 tools and engage students.

In their book Teaching the iGeneration, William M. Ferriter and Adam Garry argue that there is a natural overlap between traditional teaching strategies and the digital tools students need to succeed in the 21st century.

The third book, Literacy 2.0 by Nancy Frey, Douglas Fisher, and Alex Gonzalez, helps teachers incorporate traditional literacy skills into a mastery of technology for communicating and collaborating in new ways.

These forward-facing books address the critical issues facing teachers who are trying to reach students in the digital age. With practical strategies and real-world classroom techniques, these three texts enable teachers to engage students while preparing them to succeed in the 21st century.

“We are thrilled to release three books that provide teachers with the skills required to address the growing divide between traditional skills and Web 2.0 skills,” said Jeffrey C. Jones, president and CEO of Solution Tree. “These books will help educators gain the technical skills required to catch up and keep up with their students.”
