    Lighter Side of Technology in Education

    Technology is an integral part of education and it can be frustrating to teach but this book puts a humorous twist on situations that normally are frustrating, thereby defusing them. If you're teaching children, seniors or students in between, these wonderful clever cartoons make great intros to faculty meetings and bulletin board additions. I turned one into a screensaver. This book makes a great gift for a teacher, or for that matter, for anyone who ever touched a keyboard. There's lots of laughs between the covers of this book.
