If you are even vaguely interested in keeping your thumb on the pulse of education–this is the book for you. From breaking down the anatomy of a tweet to equipping you with the basic indicators of ‘being connected,’ this text is a user guide for future-ready schools.

The book has something for teachers just ready to dip their toes into the pool of tech-leaning pedagogy as well as those who have been thriving in online spaces for years. The authors consistently push forward an important message: it isn’t the tools, it is all about the intentions.

The extended readings would allow any middle leader to use this text and run a workshop or facilitate a discussion on the go. I’m already tempted to suggest this text for a staff PD book club, and I know the authenticity of the examples would not disappoint.

What I love about the book is that it models ‘voice and choice,’ each chapter, each idea comes with a variety of avenues to pursue–the authors are practicing what they preach. I challenge anyone to finish this book without an abundance of inspiration pushing them to share their copy with a favorite colleague immediately.
