"This book is an excellent resource for a variety of audiences. Intended for new teachers, the book is a valuable resource also for those enrolled in schools of education and veteran teachers mentoring new teachers or seeking new tips to add to their repertoire. The book contains a wealth of examples of how educators gain from online resources such as Twitter and Google Communities to connect with others and is especially useful for new teachers looking for how to use online communities to their advantage.
“Navigating the waters of social media can be tricky for any teacher and completely overwhelming for those who are new to our field. Through the voices of two well-respected educators with a long history of passionate support for new teachers, "Standing in the Gap" offers a manageable, practical plan for helping educators get connected and share ideas online.”
“Lisa Dabbs and Nicol Howard offer a stellar exploration of what collaboration and communication can look like in modern education and how it can enhance all aspects of school with their book Standing in the Gap: Empowering New Teachers Through Connected Resources. Learn about the cornerstone ideas that will help root connect classrooms, students, parents, and administrators to the incredible learning in the classroom.
"Students being “connected” is a given, so educators need to be out front of digital change. Standing in the Gap gives teachers the resources and the know-how to lead their students into this global community. Lisa and Nicol represent the growing body of educators who recognize that social media gives power, not problems, to students’ learning."
"Standing in the Gap drew me right away into a virtual learning community, with Nicol and Lisa as expert guides and encouraging mentors. There are so many resources here, shared in each chapter by teachers who generously open their doors to us. And the Action Steps tie it all together, make it do-able. This will be a good tool for our teacher education programs, where novices and experts are learning together to use online resources and social media."
