Summary This book introduces a practical model for creating educational experiences using the latest technology: Read, Reflect, Display, and Do (R2D2). Tailored to meet a variety of learning styles, backgrounds, and skill levels, the R2D2 framework is designed to help instructors of online or blended-learning courses deliver learner-centered instruction. The book offers more than 100 activities that instructors can use with students in higher education courses and in corporate, government, K-12, and other training and educational settings. Some activities, such as Web exploration and podcasts, target verbal and auditory learners. Thinking and reflective activities involve tools such as online blogs. Activities for visual learners include virtual tours, animations, and maps. Hands-on activities, including simulations and real-time cases, are designed to serve kinesthetic learners. An extensive resource section offers links to web sites. The book can be used in educational technology courses at the undergraduate, masters' and doctoral level. It can also be used in professional development workshops for instructors and administrators
