Teaching Tech Together

How to create and deliver lessons that work
and build a teaching community around them

Grassroots groups have sprung up around the world to teach programming, web design, robotics, and other skills to free-range learners. These groups exist so that people don’t have to learn these things on their own, but ironically, their founders and teachers are often teaching themselves how to teach.

There’s a better way. Just as knowing a few basic facts about germs and nutrition can help you stay healthy, knowing a few things about cognitive psychology, instructional design, inclusivity, and community organization can help you be a more effective teacher. This book presents key ideas you can use right now, explains why we believe they are true, and points you at other resources that will help you go further.

The ebook/PDF is available for free here. Let us take some inspiration…

I’ve read this book at least twice and I can’t recommend it enough for those interested in doing privacy classes.

Even though it is about programming, the majority is about education itself and the book is backed by tons of references from pedagogy scholars.
