About This Title

“The author empowers teachers to engage IT specialists or administrators in a discussion about the use of mobile technologies or Web 2.0 tools and to change the way we think about using technology with kids. This book gives readers lots of information (ammunition) to go out and make things happen with their cell phone, laptop, MP3 player, or digital camera!”
—April DeGennaro, Gifted Education Teacher
Fayette County Board of Education, Fayetteville, GA

A foundational guide for integrating mobile technologies into your classroom!

Writing for educators who want to use 21st-century technologies to help deliver relevant classroom instruction, Susan Brooks-Young examines inexpensive hardware already used by many students, explores free Web 2.0 tools such as social networking sites and virtual worlds, and sheds light on both common objections and changing points of view about using mobile technologies for instructional support.

Emphasizing digital citizenship—the ethical use of technology—this invaluable resource identifies:

  • Specific Web 2.0 tools for supporting collaboration and communication in K–12 settings
  • Strategies for practical applications
  • A decision-making model for selecting appropriate mobile technologies and Web 2.0 tools for classroom use
  • Recommended books, Web sites, and online reports and articles for reference

Teaching With the Tools Kids Really Use gives educators a solid approach for capitalizing on readily available technologies and opens up rich teaching and learning opportunities for today’s classrooms!
