5 Places To Find Free Educational eBooks - Edudemic

5 Places To Find Free Educational eBooks - Edudemic | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it
So what happens when Google, Amazon, and your local library come up short in your quest for free educational eBooks?
Kathleen Cercone's insight:

Hunting down classic literature and important manuscripts may mean more than a quick Google search for many of us. You may turn to paid sources like Amazon or even (the humanity!) turn to printed books in your library. The horror! We kid. We love the library and feature effective ways to use libraries all the time.

Lessons from iWoz and Creating Innovators

Lessons from iWoz and Creating Innovators | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it
Last week I read ‘iWoz’ by Steve Wozniak. The subtitle summarises the book
nicely 'How I Invented the Personal Computer, Co-Founded Apple, and Had Fun
Doing It’. For anyone with an interest in the birth of the personal
computer this is a must read that also offers numerous gems for those
interested in teaching and learning and makes great reading alongside Tony
Wagner’s ‘Creating Innovators: The Making of Young People Who Will Change
the World’.

LucyHarper.Com's curator insight, Today, 4:08 AM

I love that the world is waking up to the fact that children do not always need to be educated in a school. In fact many children HATE school for a whole host of very good reasons that I will discuss in a dedicated article and will never reach their full potential if forced to stay.


Home education has always existed but is experiencing exponential growth with much success. Students from home ed families are now actively sought by leading Universities and Colleges. Much of this can be attributed to parental and child involvement in online learning,

online curriculums and the fact that parents can now run business easily from home and around their childrens needs and well being.


The education most schools deliver today is petrifyingly outdated. My son was being taught the same topics and in the same way as I was 30 years ago! I read Robert T. Kiyosaki's best selling book 'Rich Dad Poor Dad ' yesterday. I didn't think I needed my eyes opening  any wider to the pitfalls of traditional education models but it reaffirmed much of what I believe to be true regarding education.


The myths of yesteryear regarding home educated children have been blown apart. Every home educated child I have met is emotionally and spiritually nourished, nurtured, socialised, educated  and HAPPY! They learn young that following in the herd is NOT the only option and to be true to themselves. 


Educational options should always be tailored if possible to a child's needs. If school is not the best option for them then home educating is a phenomenally popular, exciting and successful second option.
