The Public Technology Institute (PTI) is looking for contributors for its latest e-book on education, The Digital Journey in K-12 Education. You might remember PTI’s previous e-book, The Digital Revolution in Higher Education, which featured contributions from education innovators, faculty, administrators, and students at leading universities. Drawing on that book’s success, PTI is looking for contributors to its latest book, which is being published thanks to a grant from Cisco.
The book will focus on overcoming roadblocks and embracing innovation in K-12 education, and will be edited by Alan Shark, the Executive Director and CEO of PTI. Chapters need not be long and typically range between 3,500 and 5,000 words, not counting charts and illustrations. Some suggestions of topics are the impact of digitization on your district, school, or classroom; how you are using technology to engage students; the ways you are connecting your campus to improve efficiency; best practices in protecting critical student data and information, and more.
If you’d like to be a part of this great project, submit a one-page proposal on your idea for your chapter, an outline of what you are proposing, and a short bio about yourself. Proposals are due by June 30, 2016. Go to PTI’s website to learn more about how to submit your chapter proposals.
