Seven Must-Read Books About Education for 2014 | Online Learning Insights

Seven Must-Read Books About Education for 2014 | Online Learning Insights | Online Teaching Conference | Scoop.it

At the close of every year I draw up a list of books I want to read for the upcoming one. When I was [much] younger the goal was to read as many books as I could—the more books I read the greater the sense of accomplishment I felt.

 

I’m far more selective than I was in my youth; my aim is to read books that are worthy of my time, which is no doubt a sign of aging or crankiness, though likely it’s a bit of both. In this post I share with readers a selection of titles from my to-read list for 2014—the top seven related to education.

 

This year [as in the past two at least] the number of titles to choose from was overwhelming. But I’ve narrowed it down to a mere seven. As the quote from Adler [above] suggests, I’m aiming for quality over quantity.
