“This is an extraordinary example of how “one book fits all.”  Here is one of the richest, most comprehensive and user-friendly collections of practical ideas, strategies and tips for using technology to reach and teach today’s students. While technology will continue to change, this book – with its emphasis on ways to use technology to maximize student involvement and learning – will be invaluable for many, many years to come.”  

Dr. Boyce Heidenreich, Former Principal and Administrator

“Technological tools are rapidly changing.  Newer, better, and faster are all the new norms. This bookprovides links, URLs and QR codes to support pages with updates and ideas for evaluating and using new tech releases.   With a focus on teaching 21st century skills, the strategies presented in this workbook not only strengthen a student’s ability to engage technology, but also to problem solve through creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking. This book is an essential item for the successful integration of technology, PBL, and soft skill acquisition. Teaching the Last Backpack Generation is a catalyst for good teaching and learning!”
