Product description

Review

"This inspirational work empowers us with tools, ideas, and a sense of urgency to apply 21st century fluencies into our practice."--Cynthia Sistek-Chandler, Department Chair (08/13/2010)

"This book should be used as "The Big Read" for the entire learning community."--Meg Ormiston, Author (08/13/2010)

"Technology has changed how we get information, how we entertain ourselves, how we communicate with others, how we do our work, how we teach, and how we learn. This book is also about why you as an individual and as a teacher must change the way you look at the world."
-- (07/30/2010)

"The authors take you to the edge of technological innovation and give you a glimpse of a future bearing down on us like a freight train. Thankfully, they provide perspective to help steer that train and take it some place desirable. It's a wild educational ride that will allow you to see the future in new, more helpful ways."-- (08/13/2010)

"This book helps all of us--educators, researchers, and parents--cross over to meet the needs of our children in this age of the "knowledge society." Everyone should delve into this book!"-- (08/13/2010)

"The authors have laid out a vision that educational leaders can use as a blueprint to advance 21st century skills in today's students. Educators worldwide can benefit from their insight to develop the integration of technologies and improve student learning."-- (08/13/2010)
