I hope you'll read my new book with coauthor Suzie Boss, Reinventing Project-Based Learning: Your Field Guide to Real-World Projects in the Digital Age. It takes an optimistic view of what we can accomplish with inspired, collaborative teaching using new technologies. Learn more at the Reinventing blog. The book and the blog chronicle the adventures and tap into the thinking of some of the best educators around. I love the writing of Marilyn Burns and Tracy Kidder because they bring interactions between teachers and students to life. As authors our intent was to strike a balance between sharing evocative stories that do just that while also offering practical advice on project planning and instructional design. I hope you enjoy the book-- we're tracking more stories for volume 2, so keep us in mind!
