The curriculum tie-ins that Terrell provides are important as well, because teachers will often buy books similar to this and find an explanation of how to use the tool, but not ways to integrate it into specific areas. Overall, I highly recommend this book to all of my teachers as a valuable, out of this world resource.
This book has two huge selling points. First, it is chock full of ideas that can be quickly applied in any classroom with basic tech tools (and most of the missions also include a "tech-free" or "faux tech" option for those who may not have access or who have very young children). The ideas are not intimidating, even if you only have a basic grasp of ed tech tools, and many of the missions call for the use of platforms most teachers would be using already.
Second, it is so timely! The problems being addressed are problems that our students must learn to deal with (Internet trolls, fake news, creating a digital profile, etc). These missions are fun and creative, but they are grounded in really solid pedagogical approaches to help students not only learn basic tech skills, but also to extend those ideas and consider how their online interactions can have lasting repercussions. All of the missions end with discussion ideas and follow-up activities to help students make the connection between the school setting and their online lives.
The missions in this book can be applied to all content areas, and also cover the Digital Learning Competency standards many states are now requiring teachers to teach. Buy this book; you will not regret it!
This is going to be a go-to resource for so many teachers as they are getting into using digital learning strategies, and I imagine many will be able to look back at this book as what really changed their classroom towards embracing technology. You don't have to be a techie to be able to implement most of these strategies.
I look forward to adapting some of these into my mathematics classroom.
