Teaching with Technology Creating Student-Centered Classroom
As a new teacher, I found this book helpful and insightful. One of my goals is to incorporate technology in the classroom as much as possible. This book encourages students to learn in an environment in which they have some control over what they produce. Motivation, is a critical aspect of teaching. This book portrays the successful use of technolgy and shows how students are highly motivated to do their projects when technology is implemented.

A must read for technology advocates in schools!
A fascinating and compelling read. The experiences of these teachers portrayed in this research will help me refine my message of technology and it's place in the classroom. After reading this book, I can say with much more certainty that technology is the catalyst for change in the way we teach. Not because it is good for technology, but the change, student-centered classrooms, is good for learning. As a leader in a school district who must constantly refine a vision and motivate and lead others to that vision, I want to use these proven concepts and experiences as proof it can be done.

A Compelling Vision
Being a technology coordinator, I have given integration issues some thought. Teaching with Technology helped me to "bring it all together". The book offers a compelling look at what happens in a class when you introduce education technologies. Why do some teachers fail? It's all here - I would strongly recommend it.
