Reviews of SL tech ed books/ebooks

 
Wonderful information for a Tech Teacher. Excited to use the lessons in my classroom.–Amazon customer

I’m a fifth grade teacher and bought this book to find projects that would integrate technology into my classroom curriculum. What a find. There are projects that cover math, geography, history, science, writing, word study–everything I needed. Most of them can be completed in less than an hour and are fun for the students so they don’t mind doing them. Along the way, students are learning valuable technology skills they’ll take with them to sixth grade. It’s also saved me a lot of time not having to develop grading rubrics or samples myself. Overall, a great idea for any elementary school teacher. –Amazon customer


I bought this as a gift for the homeschooler at the recommendation of a fifth grade tech teacher I know. What an amazing find it turned out to be! The lessons are organized by topic, software, grade level, with information on skills taught, standards addressed, as well as step-by-step instructions with reproducibles and rubrics. The projects are unique and got my homeschool friend through an entire year with her four children. Most important, her kids loved them–never got bored. I’d highly recommend it to anyone looking for an all-in-one book for k-8 technology. –Amazon customer


This is the first book you’ll want to purchase if you’re new to tech ed. It has projects in history, science, literature and more. Each lesson includes examples, grading rubrics, ISTE guidelines, enrichments and trouble shooting. I’m the tech coordinator for my school. I leave the book out for the teachers to look through when they need a project. The author has done an excellent job of hitting all the high points. The book is even better than I expected because it includes links to an active blog where readers can ask questions and interact with other teachers using the material. It’s clear the author has a lot of experience in this area. –Amazon customer


I love the changes in this book. I bought the original volume, and now the update. This 2011 version provides more samples, more links, more extras (like wall charts and advice on teaching different skills like keyboarding) that will be great for my classroom next year. This volume has a lot more projects for middle school age students than Volume I, which is what I needed. I’d recommend this to any tech lab teacher or even classroom teachers looking to expand their tech ed connections. –Amazon customer
