From the Back Cover:

Teaching Generation Text is a hands-on resource that shows teachers how to stop fighting and start embracing cell phones for learning and building relationships. Authors Lisa Nielsen and Willyn Webb offer unique ways to use a device students love. Cell phones can remind students to study, be a way to take notes, provide instant answers, and be used for research. For educators, they serve as a vehicle to strengthen the home-school connection, send information to groups, and capture responses to polls and quizzes, all of which can be used to enhance lessons and increase motivation.

With a wealth of innovative ideas, activities, lessons, and strategies, Teaching Generation Text:

  • Shows how to use cell phones to support research-based instructional strategies

  • Provides building blocks for success, such as acceptable use policies, permissions, safety, classroom management procedures, and assessment

  • Includes methods for incorporating cell phones into instruction with a unit planning guide and lesson plan ideas

"Teaching Generation Text is a must read for anyone serious about infusing technology in the classroom in a way that honors the culture of K–12 students. Webb and Nielsen not only explain how cell phones and texting can be used for multiple purposes in a way that relative novices can understand, but they also provide explicit guidance regarding how they can be used to augment well known instructional strategies."
Robert J. Marzano, C.E.O., Marzano Research Laboratory, author, Classroom Instruction that Works

"This book would be a great asset to those who are finally coming around to the idea of mobile devices in the classroom."
Will Richardson, "Learner in Chief" at Connective Learning, author, Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms
