If you consider yourself a techno-phobe and not tech savvy, this is the book for you. It helps teachers get up-to-speed on all the new ed tech applications and is very user-friendly. I like this one and I think it should be part of the professional collection at EVERY k-12 school library.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
