Technology Thursday: FREE pedagogy books from Project Gutenberg

project-gutenberg.pngThe Project Gutenberg began in 1971 when Michael Stern Hart, inventor of the eBook, started digitizing and distributing books in the public domain. As of October 2015, the Project Gutenberg website has digitized over 50,000 books in formats including HTML, PDF, EPUB, Kindle, and plain text. Today I want to share links to some of the pedagogy books that can be found in the collection. Many of them are from lesser-known authors, which to me makes them even more interesting. Enjoy reading! ~Matt
