I found the format of the book to be especially helpful. The author introduces a particular aspect and then discusses several tools that could be used including a brief description of how she uses that tool for that specific purpose. In this way, Bethany is able to present several tools to help teachers in a variety of areas. For example, the book opens with a chapter on engagement. Throughout this chapter, Bethany offers several different strategies to increase engagement of students that she has you successfully in her classroom. From using QR Codes to Edpuzzle and more, she briefly discusses how each tool is used successfully in her classroom to address this particular aspect.
The book continues with chapters on exploring with technology, creating, communicating, collaboration and critical thinking, assessment, reflection, and motivation as well as designing lessons with technology in mind. By using this format, Perry is able to discuss a wide range of tools that can be used for many of these different areas. Well, Petty discusses several tools in more than one category. In each chapter, the tools are discussed as they would pertain to that particular chapter. In setting up the book this way, she is able to introduce new and emerging teachers to a variety of uses of tools that they may already be familiar with as well as new tools that many teachers may not be using.
As an experienced technology integrator, I was familiar with almost all of the tools that Petty introduced, but even I was intrigued by her unique uses of tools that I have used for years. Her creativity in presenting these new and interesting uses for tools for technology integration in the classroom make this book a must-read for new teachers and an incredible resource for experienced teachers.
The practicality is where this book shines. There are tons of tips and tools in here, and probably a lot of things you have heard of or seen before. But the way that Bethany illustrates a new and creative use for that tool is where the awesome is. For example, the "In Class Flip" takes YouTube, and turns it on it's head for powerful instructional purpose. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. This book is full of creative and novel ways to integrate technology into your teaching without making you learn something to crazy or feeling impossible for the tech novice.
There really is something for every teacher here, from your first year beginner to the veteran teacher leader. Consider Illuminate: Technology Enhanced Learning to be a tech integration blueprint applicable to anyone looking to add more digital learning to their classroom
