I purchased this book for my technology in education course and could not have been more pleased. Each chapter is filled with in-depth lesson plans and countless ideas for integrating multiple subjects. The CD-ROM with reproducible so and examples was very helpful as well.
This is a phenomenal resource to use in the classroom! This book appeals to a wide variety of audiences, and is very user friendly. There are a variety of lessons to use that can translate easily across the content areas. Gaier and Diamond do a wonderful job at providing step by step instructions regarding how to implement technology into the classroom. This is extremely relevant in today's society with the push to educate students on how to use technology responsibly and with a purpose.There are fantastic examples of lessons woven seamlessly into the book. I have already incorporated blogs into my English classroom and have seen the growth in my students as writers. I am excited for next school year, and to use wikis, podcasts and more!
