"This is a book that I would use immediately with my preservice teachers or department if I were a K-12 supervisor. Important, though, is getting it in teachers' hands as soon as possible." -- Karen Stearns, Assistant Professor "Hits the nail on the head by emphasizing how technology can be used in ways that go beyond one-on-one student use of software programs and teachers' use of PowerPoint for presentations. The book emphasizes the collaborative work and learning that can occur when educators take advantage of all that the Internet has to offer." -- Erica Boling, Assistant Professor of Literacy Education
