Review:

From Shakespeare to YouTube, the whole book asserts that technology (students at computers) and reading (students at books) are deeply human acts. That we have already entered a new world where both acts are fundamental to literacy is the gentle cry of every unit outlined in this book. It is written in the unmistakable voice of a real-world practitioner, sensitive to the classroom's teacher's need for immediate support in the form of handouts, assessment rubrics, and a rich array of resources, most of which are instantly accessible online. This book never betrays the English teacher's faith in text; what it does is expand and enrich the context of our work. --Mary Ellen Dakin, English Teacher, Revere High School, Revere, MA

This book and its authors are guides in a new frontier - one where our students are our partners for learning and the landscape is ever-changing. Shamburg's principles are sound, the pedagogy is solid, and the project ideas are gems. Teachers seeking a fresh and manageable look at the possibilities offered by current technology will have much to be pleased about herein - handouts, links to resources - it's all in here. --Bud Hunt, Instructional Technologist and Blogger
