Doug Johnson is a master when it comes to using technology in schools and this book of advice to teachers starts at the very beginning. You mean to say that there are teachers who donít know or arenít using the basics? Donít the new crop of teachers coming into your schools already know how to use technology as a great teaching and learning tool? If any of your school professionals need to start at the novice level, or even if they think they are quite knowledgeable, this book can serve as a great foundation for a bootcamp or several bootcamps and workshops that bring everyone along toward excellence in the integration of technology. I like Johnsonís models for teachers and students in the progressive sophistication of technology use. We all start with the basics and because new technologies and tools appear frequently, we are all at beta stage. In this new world, Johnson covers the basics of getting started with various computing devices, the software needed, and how to begin using the new tools to enhance your own productivity as a teacher. Then he branches out into practical but useful ways to use technology to enhance student learning such thing as 21st Century Skills and doing so in a safe environment. Since CIPA now requires the teaching of digital citizenship, Johnson has some excellent advice. He always urges care and purposefully use and how to judge the impact on teaching and learning. So, if you, the reader is looking for a guide to use in professional technological development or justchecking up on your own skills when compared to a pro, get this book and peruse its recommendations and crafted advice. Excellent.
