Learning Sciences International is very excited to be working with you (Pamela Livingston) again on the development of our online 21st Century Teaching and Learning Series. Your expertise in the effective use of technology in instruction adds additional value and substance to our online courses and graduate programs.
– Justin Detig, Learning Sciences International
Our school found Pamela’s book invaluable when preparing for 1-to-1 laptops. When she visited in person she made a perceptive assessment of our technology strengths and weaknesses, and gave us excellent advice for moving forward with educational technology in the long term.
