This new book, by three of the same authors, focuses on using protocols to enhance learning with their students in multiple environments including online―a growing sector of the educational world. Going Online with Protocols lays out the diverse challenges faced by teachers and facilitators in the online world and provides readers with strategies to tackle them. The authors include online adaptations for such traditional protocols as the Tuning Protocol, the Collaborative Assessment Conference, and the Consultancy Protocol. They also offer entirely new protocols unique to the online environment. This dynamic resource combines a rich theoretical background with step-by-step illustrations of powerful protocols, along with tips on how and when to use them. Book Features: The only book to specifically address teaching with protocols. Detailed guidance to help experienced online teachers use protocols.

Review "This book is really wonderful…a must in any teacher's repertoire."―Bena Kallick, Institute for Habits of Mind "Eduplanet21 has already included some of the protocols in its instructional design. Thanks for all of the ideas!”―Jeff Colosimo, Eduplanet21 “Going Online with Protocols is a powerful text that provides educators with the necessary tools to guide students through meaningful discussion in an online environment. The authors provide a great collection of practical tools to improve student success in online learning. No online educator should be without it!” ―Suzanne M. Ehrlich, Director and Assistant Professor, Signed Language Interpreting program, University of Cincinnati “As an evaluator of numerous online and blended courses, I have found that the weakest component of most courses is the discussion. The examples and guidance found in Going Online with Protocols can change this dramatically. Every online instructor and instructional designer should read this book.” ―Thomas C. Reeves, Professor Emeritus of Learning, Design, and Technology, The University of Georgia “Talk about 21st Century skills! Going Online with Protocols shows us how technology extends the power of protocols to support the learning of real teachers and real students.” ―David Allen, Assistant Professor of English Education, College of Staten Island, the City University of New York “Structures to make sure learners meet each other, have clear goals and norms, and share voices equally are absent in so many online courses and forums, where conversation threads are often random and unproductive. Thankfully, there is a remedy: read this practical and astute book.” ―Ron Berger, Chief Program Officer, Expeditionary Learning “In this engaging and thoughtful book, the authors lay out tools and share a bounty of resources and experiences. Whether you are novice or experienced in using protocols or engaging in online learning, this book offers new learning and new adventures.” ―Frances Hensley, Founding President, School Reform Initiative “Going Online with Protocols ‘jumps into the future’ with the daunting question: How do we make the transformation from ‘protocol-assisted facilitative leadership’ to teaching and learning online? In a simple, inspired journey, this book documents how educators who value the focus of protocols and the creativity they foster are bridging the practice of face-to-face collaboration with modern online cyber culture.” ―Donna Isaacs, Teache
