“In your hands, you have what you need to transform your teaching. Adam and Bill have created a thoughtful guide to modernize your classroom both pedagogically and technologically. It doesn't matter if you are just starting to explore the world of educational technology or you have been working in this world for a long time, there is something for you in this book that will make you a better teacher.”
“I liked that this book does not advocate introducing technology for technology's sake. Instead, the focus is on teaching five important 21st century skills—information fluency, persuasion, communication, collaboration, and problem solving—first 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.”
“Bill and Adam hit it out of the ballpark again with the updated second edition of Teaching the iGeneration. After reading this practical book cover to cover, I have completely restructured my professional development plans for the next month, and I can't wait to share what I have learned!”
