Table of Contents

This post is part of an ongoing series of post related to the process of writing a book about educational technology. Learn more about the book here.

I’ve collected notes, conducted research, and began writing this book (CYOD), and now have a good idea about what the structure will be. I talked before about the writing style of the book, but now I’ll share the actual outline I am working with.

The book will be divided into 5 main themes/sections with short chapters in each. The following outline show all the chapters I have so far, but not necessarily in order. Any input on the structure, order, or content would be greatly appreciated. Reach out on Twitter with any feedback.

In addition to this outline, there are a few chapters that will be included, but haven’t’ found the right section to include them yet.

This isn’t the final versions, but it’s a good start. If you’d like to see the content or research for many of these chapter, head over to the GitHub repository.
