 From TLT Group World
Take a minute to think about this question. What resources, apps, or LTAs, did you discover in  2014 and then began to use? In other words, what are some of your favorites?
Share 1 or 2 of your favorites via this survey.  We will reveal the results during this week’s FridayLive! In addition, Steve Gilbert and other TLT members will share some of their favorites. Register Here to join the fun.

Now is a great time to become a member of the TLT Group!
The TLT Group continues to encourage, empower, and engage:  
  • Those who are already successful educators and know what still matters most.  
  • Those who are pressed by their own enthusiasm or external forces to improve teaching and learning with technology - to begin teaching more online.  
  • Those who are looking for help with the next steps - eagerly, reluctantly, fearfully.

By becoming a member or donating to the TLT Group you will help us continue this work.

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
Our Cognitive Science Book Discussion has concluded. Those who participated had this to say:
  • “The book series is great in that it offers some great titles AND the group offers some motivation for finishing the book, a deadline, if you will, and then sharing ideas.
  • “I love the practical applications, like the use of flashcards.”
  • “The selection of books to read I might never have read!”
  • “I like the metacognitive aspect - how thinking about the experience affects our sense of learning.”
As a result, we are working to answer this question. What should we read next? We hope you will weigh in by clicking on the link above, react to possible choices and add your own.
 Encourage. Enable. Engage.
