I would recommend this book for any teacher, student, parent, or administrator! Matt doesn't promote technology at the expense of all else, but rather takes an approach that falls in line with best practice pedagogy. Technology is a tool that can and should be effectively harnessed and utilized in the practice of education. But the tool is only as effective as the user. Matt's approach to education is effective, practical, and timely. I honestly couldn't recommend a book - educational or otherwise - any higher than I do this one!
