Layering for learning

I am working to put the final touches on a new Kindle book I have decided to title Layering for Learning. While a strange title, it does accurately describe the processes I encourage teachers and students to apply. I created this book recognizing that educators are using more and more online resources in place of traditional educational resources. Many of these resources are not created by the teachers who assign them. I think it is important to respect the copyright held by the individuals who created the content and the idea in Layering is that this copyright can be respected (the original content is sent from the host server) while adding instructional devices “on top” of this content. So, imagine adding questions, prompts, and requests before students are provided access. I like the idea of teacher as designer and we try to develop this perspective in the grad program I still work with.
