This book builds on the landmark Classroom Instruction That Works by linking each of the nine categories of effective instructional strategies with educational technology applications and resources. Authors Howard Pitler, Elizabeth R. Hubbell, Matt Kuhn, and Kim Malenoski share research-based recommendations for practice and clarify how to use both new and familiar technologies to
* Set objectives that are specific, flexible, and personal
* Create advance organizers and nonlinguistic representations
* Help students take notes, summarize content, and make comparisons
* Engage students in cooperative learning
* Help students generate and test hypotheses
* Support students in practicing new skills and doing homework, and
* Reinforce students’ efforts through formative assessment, feedback, and recognition.
Each strategy-focused chapter features cross-curricular examples, many drawn from actual lesson plans, projects, and products. In addition to stories of students learning through inquiry, collaborative projects, games, and other activities that make school exciting and meaningful, you’ll find dozens of recommended resources along with expert guidance on planning technology-enhanced lessons aligned with national standards.
Technology can bring a world of information into the classroom and increase teachers’ ability to individualize instruction and increase student engagement.Using Technology with Classroom Instruction That Works is the key you need to seize this opportunity and take your effective teaching practices—and your students’ learning—to the next level.

I think that with several revisions the system can be upgraded to "dreadful", or perhaps even "bad." As it stands, this is a book that will be impossible to view on a tablet or phone.
Skip skip skip this one. Can't emphasize enough. Kindle is good, iBooks are good, nook is terrible. A blazing noon-day sun of awful.
The book itself is interesting enough, even though some of the information in it is already outdated and some of the links are dead. I rather like the book. That being said, I feel that I have gotten much less out of it than I could've by buying it in this format.
