"This book is aimed at teachers interested in increasing their use of technology in the classroom. The examples given are excellent. They are very explicit and easy to follow. I have not encountered a book that does this in this manner. I really enjoyed [the author's] writing style. It seemed like a workshop that you were actually attending."
