“Having to teach in the age of digital bombardment has created an enormous challenge for teachers....This book is full of practical ideas about how to engage kids who have been fundamentally altered by online digital experiences. It is a lifeline for teachers dealing with all the pressures of modern classrooms who must now also figure out how to reach new generations of learners.”

Ted McCain, associate director for Canada for the Thornburg Center

“Jukes, Schaaf, and Mohan have hit the nail on the head. This book reads like a user's guide for the digital generation. Students may look the same, but their brains and learning styles have changed. Reinventing Learning for the Always-On Generation validates that change and provides a bevy of useful tools and strategies on how to reach these learners. But it doesn't stop there. This book also provides insights into how we can stay connected with kids in an era of over-connectedness.”

Carl Hooker, director of innovation & digital learning, Eanes Independent School District, Texas
