"Kist writes as a learner should, sharing what he discovers along the way. I like even more that he asks important questions while capturing how he and several other master teachers have attempted to ask and answer them with their own students. You will, too."
—Bud Hunt, Blogger at Bud the Teacher
Instructional Technologist, St. Vrain Valley School District, Longmont, CO

"The innovative classroom activities in this engaging book will inspire teachers to help students acquire digital-media literacies for collaborating on and sharing their work—literacies essential for participation in a networked world."
—Richard Beach, Professor of English Education
University of Minnesota

"A veritable smorgasbord of ideas and suggestions. This text grabbed me right away, and I started flagging all sorts of ideas even in the earliest chapters. It is as if Bill Kist met me in the hallway, took me by the hand, and simply said, 'Come here, I want to show you something.'"
—Sheila M. Gragg, Technology Integration Coach
Ashbury College, Canada
