How can teachers meet the challenges of engaging and educating all students, from those who are gadget-toting and plugged-in to those who are language learners or economically distressed and everyone in between? How can you help students learn what they need to know when the world and all that's in it is changing rapidly? Standards and high-stakes testing haven't answered the call, but you can. Transformational Teaching in the Information Age explores the power of placing students at the center of teaching and learning. The shift from simply teaching content to focusing on and teaching individual learners allows teachers to inspire students to be independent, imaginative, and responsible learners for life. These teachers are transforming education, lives, and opportunities for their students. A transformational approach to teaching results in a high-quality education for today's learners. Citing theory, research, practice, and their own experiences in teaching K 18 students, Tom Rosebrough and Ralph Leverett build a convincing case for the primacy of student teacher relationships in productive classrooms. Knowing students well is critical to teaching to their needs. Education cannot be just an effort to cover content, pass standardized tests, and achieve adequate yearly progress. To serve the next generation well, it must be about helping each student develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to live a uniquely satisfying life in the face of myriad changes. Thomas R. Rosebrough is executive dean of the College of Education and Human Studies at Union University and professor of education. He has taught elementary students through doctoral student candidates in public and private schools. Ralph G. Leverett is program director for the masters' of education program at Union University and professor of special education. He has taught students at all levels in public and private schools, and is a speech-language pathologist.

This volume aims to give teachers and scholars a greater understanding of the challenges associated with the practice of fostering transformative learning, along with providing a recognition of the complexity of practice beyond the application of strategies and techniques. Teaching for Change will encourage and motivate practitioners to take more risks in the classroom, pushing the limits of what is presently known about transformative education. Fostering transformative learning is about teaching for change. It requires intentional action, a willingness to take personal risk, a genuine concern for the learners' betterment, and the wherewithal to draw on a variety of methods and techniques that help create a classroom environment that encourages and supports personal growth. To become effective at fostering transformative learning, it is helpful to look through the lens of those who have been engaged in the practice. The contributing authors to this volume are seasoned practitioners and scholars who have introduced innovations that enhance the practice of fostering transformative learning and have asked ethical questions that need to be explored and reflected upon when practicing transformative learning in the classroom. This volume provides a tutorial and analysis of teaching for change by showing how these seasoned practitioners and scholars grapple with the fundamental issues associated with the subject. Teaching for Change is the 109th issue of the quarterly higher education report New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, published by Jossey-Bass.

Triangulation of findings from PT-TPACK surveys, journal reflection writings, observations, student artifacts, technology presentations, and end-of-course reflections provided a comprehensive understanding of events. The study concluded that modeling technology integration, project-based learning, and 21st century learning in a flipped classroom environment during a teacher preparation course: 1) had a positive influence on improving preservice teachers’ self-efficacy in technology integration, project-based learning, and 21st century learning; and 2) preservice teachers developed TPACK self-efficacy. In this mixed-methods study, implications, limitations, and recommendations for further research are discussed.
