“I want to give this book to my principal and every person I talk to so we begin to change the way we think about using technology with kids. This book empowers teachers to engage IT specialists or administrators in a discussion about the use of mobile technologies or Web 2.0. The book gives the reader lots of information (ammunition) to go out and make things happen with their cell phone, laptop, MP3 player, or digital camera!”

This timely book presents readers with a plethora of ideas and strategies for implementing technology-based activities that will help students meet the standards and increase their awareness of technology tools currently available.”
