This book is the most current educational text that centers solely on lessons centered around technology. Although I make my students blog, use visual media such as YouTube, and participate in Discussion Boards, the authors of this text show ways to incorporate gaming, wikis, and fan fiction. In addition, unlike other texts that I've read, they link each mode of technology with literacy skills that students are learning that are comparable to "traditional" forms of teaching literacy.
