Posted December 12, 2011
I read this book for one of my graduate classes and found it to be one of the most interesting "text books" that was required by my Professors. The material was organized very well. For example, each chapter continues to the next in a clear and concise way. Everything flows together nicely. The book overall is presented very clearly with lots of bold headings which breaks up the book so that it is interesting to read. It was a nice change of pace from my previous text books. I really enjoyed that there were so many real life teaching examples presented throughout the book. As a future educator, this is very important. It also helps when trying to understand the material. When reading this book, I learned many ways that I could use digital storytelling in the classroom for many different students. I was also impressed that different educational psychology references were made. For example, Bloom's Taxonomy. Many of the lessons and ideas presented were not only clearly organized but they were given in a step-by-step fashion so that you could follow them for your classroom teaching. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It is something that I plan on holding on to for future reference and use with students. I would recommend this book to anyone in the education field, whether you are teaching or in school to become a teacher--it is a great find. It also gives great ways to implement technology in your classroom if you need to do something different and exciting for your students. Enjoy!Was this review helpful?
