  1. If you haven't read anything about brain-based learning by Eric Jensen, I highly recommend it!

    Lovely to know that a lot of the pedagogy in educational technology fits well within the context of how the brain learns best.

    Another good one is "Never Work Harder Than Your Students and Other Principles of Great Teaching" by Robyn Renee Jackson. That one is next on my reading list.
