This book is an excellent transitional text that links instructional strategies that work (i.e., produce improved student achievement) with practical uses of available technology. Too often, technology is considered a separate subject in K12 education. This book shows how technology supports and enhances sound instructional practices.

It is a must read for school technology directors and curriculum directors. Thanks to the REMCAM (Regional Educational Media Centers Association of Michigan) for recommending it.

I enjoyed this book. It was easy to read and kept my attention. It is organized in a fashion that is easy to follow, giving one time to digest each strategy at a time. Lots of good tips that one can take right into the classroom and use with students. This would be a great book to do a book study group on!

Of all the textbooks I've ever had to purchase (I was an Education Major, so there have been plenty), this is probably one of the best. It is very easy to read, with TIMELY anecdotes-not just someone lecturing about how we should not lecture in class. The best part of the book is all of the references given: websites and programs with short, accurate descriptions and URLS. If you are a teacher who is serious about upping your game and really integrating technology into your instruction, this is the book for you. My co-workers already want to borrow it.

As a teacher I find this book a refreshing break from the typical educational text that tend to be theoretical. Using Technology... is more of a shop manual. It is rich with technological tools for learning as well as links to download free resources. Additionally I found the detailed instructions as to how to use these tools very helpful. The book looks at technology as part of the curriculum and not as something separate. I keep this text in my desk drawer.....valuable!

This book is filled with great ideas that every classroom teacher needs to embrace. Administrators should take the concepts and incorporate into teacher objectives as schools establish their "Race to The Top" goals. Students will be the beneficiaries of employment of the concepts spelled out in this powerful book.

Format: Paperback
For using technology within education, this book is a great start for educators who may have ideas but need guidance on where to begin. Ideally, this book would be used along side Classroom Instruction that Works since it is a companion book; however, this is only a review of the technology aspect. The second edition brings the reader in with examples on technology being used in classrooms today, such as 1-to-1 computer programs, and self-assesses the previous version that includes information that is irrelevant to the current generation. With this, the reader can see how much technology and its use in education has changed over the years.

Since this book is a companion, it flows in a way that using the main source would be the primary focus. The book is separated into three categories: creating the environment for learning, helping students develop understanding, and helping students extend and apply knowledge. With a conclusion at the end, this book plays out how most educational instruction books do. Setting us the learning space so students can work and learn effectively, provide an understand for what they are learning, and using what they learn outside of the classroom. Add in technology, and this book is a great add on to a book about optimizing classroom instruction.

This book is definitely a reflection of what I have been learning as a per-service (computer) teacher and technology coach. Some of methods have discussed in my own classrooms are included in this book, such as Know/Want to Know/Learned (KWL) charts, assessment tools, and creation tools that show what students have learned. Although this book includes resources and tools I have already learn about, it would be good for teachers to use as they transition into a more tech-friendly learning environment.
