“I liked that this book does not advocate introducing technology for technologys sake. Instead, the focus is on teaching five important 21st century skillsinformation fluency, persuasion, communication, collaboration, and problem solvingfirst and foremost, and then introducing new technology to enhance those skills.
I also think the reproducible sheets . . . are extremely helpful in showing teachers how to structure digital projects. For teachers who are less savvy about technology, this helps to demystify the process.
Note that while the target audience is middle and high school, I think the technological tools are easily adaptable by elementary school teachers.”
