"The author empowers teachers to engage IT specialists or administrators in a discussion about the use of mobile technologies or Web 2.0 tools and to change the way we think about using technology with kids. This book gives readers lots of information (ammunition) to go out and make things happen with their cell phone, laptop, MP3 player, or digital camera!"
