Format: Paperback
This is a fun and interesting book. The information about the brain changes of my students helps me understand how to reach and teach them. The brain-based strategies are both low tech and high tech, so I can meet the needs of all of the kids in my classroom. There are a lot of brain based teaching books available, but this one brings you into the twenty-first century. I now offer students more choice and have included more technology options.

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Erica R. Chapman on May 5, 2010
Format: Paperback
Teaching to students who only want to be connected digitally is a challenge. Students' brains are changing and this book gives teachers options for both low tech and high tech teaching. This book promotes learning and memory across the content areas and provides suggestions for the types of choices kids need today. Many of our students are more comfortable with their digital devices than they are working face to face. Sprenger emphasizes the importance of using engaging activities that allow students to not only use technology but also learn to work with others. Brain Based Teaching in the Digital Age has me thinking about new ways to organize my classroom and which tools are more useful for meeting specific standards. I have an analog brain and I'm working with a digital generation. It's time I catch up, and this book is helping me do just that!

This book gave me some great new ideas for both tutoring, as well as teaching. It also reinforced that I was currently on the right track within my teaching.
