OpenLibrary: I’m starting to contribute…

The OpenLibrary project aims at creating a web-page for each and every book (paper-based and digital books) that has been published by any member of humanity. I’ve started to contribute my modest share of time by referencing the books I’ve been editing for the last few years, containing my students written reports on their […]

Book Review: “Everything Bad is Good For You” by Steven Johnson

I’ve started to read “Everything Bad is Good For You” by Steven Johnson over a “Pizza chèvre”.

I’m trying to deepen my knowledge about this strain of research, because I want to provide my tutees (students of the bachelor in educational sciences) with better guidance on their own way to “becoming a teacher”.

Book Review: “Handbook of Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPCK) for Educators” by AACTE

I’ve recently “discovered” the TPCK model, by browsing the iTunesU catalogue and falling over Dr. Ruben Puentedura’s video podcast called “As We May Teach” (see: I was totally unaware of the theoretical and empirical work done in the field of TPCK, so far and so I was very happy to see that there are […]
