'Reinventing Project Based Learning features great examples of extended learning opportunities for students coupled with best practice uses of the Read/Write Web technologies that are changing the world. Suzie Boss and Jane Krauss put the emphasis on learning, not on technology, and their many vignettes show how teachers are beginning to take full advantage of the new global connections we have at our fingertips. This is a journey that every educator needs to embark upon, and this highly readable road map is the perfect companion for the trip.' - --Will Richardson, author of Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms

Have I found the book useful? Probably not, as it is not as much about project-based learning as I had hoped. It is more about communication and collaboration and current learning trends than it is about project-based learning. It is however, a wonderful book and a must read for anyone trying to get up to speed in our web dependent world. Read this book now, as it will be out of style after a few years.
