Editorial Reviews

Choice Magazine
This book could easily be subtitled all-you-wanted-to-know-about-cell-phone-use-in-schools-but-hesitated-to-ask. It will easily serve as the practitioner's guide to educational use of cell phones. Kolb . . . provides concrete suggestions for what to teach and how to teach it--everything from suggested letters to parents or administrators explaining proposed instructional projects to detailed, standards-based lesson plans.
