Editorial Reviews

Michelle Strom
"Creating Content With Your Tablet provides educators with simple, easy steps to implement tablet technology with the Common Core Standards. I am encouraged to try the apps in this book. It makes the connection between modern technology and what teachers are already doing in the classroom seem seamless. "
Kendra Hanzlik
"The planning guide in Chapter 8 was especially helpful. It will provide a scaffold for teachers to help them plan lessons while at the same time reminding them of quality lesson design principles."
David Fife

"Very practical for a classroom teacher. The discussion questions at the end of each chapter are excellent for a book study or district that is moving towards tablet implementation."

Marsha Daniels
“Susan is a master teacher whom I’ve personally watched as she guided experienced and inexperienced teachers and helped them learn how to incorporate tablet technology very effectively into a preschool environment. Creating Content With Your Tablet is just one more top-notch example of Susan’s skill as a teacher who provides clear, precise, targeted instruction with living examples for those who are trying to implement a new teaching tool. The Common Core State Standards for Literacy place a strong emphasis on content creation on the part of students. Teachers, with the help of authors like Susan Brooks-Young, will be empowered when they read her book to lead students to the level of content creation.”
