    I read this for a class. A lot of ideas I had tried before or read about before regurgitated in a "new book". I read this for a class. A lot of ideas I had tried before or read about before regurgitated in a "new book".

    This book is a powerful collection of ideas to catalyze change in education as well as individual classroom instruction. There are plenty of links to templates, most of which are included on the Ditchbook website, all easy to use and easy to download. Overall, this is a powerful, short read. I'd highly recommend it for everyone else out there who's trying to figure out this whole "virtual teaching" business- and who's eager to grab at some of the "silver linings" with which technology presents u This book is a powerful collection of ideas to catalyze change in education as well as individual classroom instruction.

As Angela Watson says in her blog, Cornerstone for Teachers , "Schools are closed. This is our chance to re-imagine them." This book is a great place to start that re-imagination process.

    I got to read this as part of a summer book club for work. There wasn’t too much that was groundbreaking for me but I think it’s because I’m fortunate to work in a place that is already so tech-forward and have a strong PLN that is always innovating. Still, I can see how this would be a good idea sparker for those who are new to experimentation. I do still have conflicted feelings about the whole pirate theme and even the whole use of maverick as a goal in the book...

I feel like there is a constant doubling down on some of these problematic avatars and yet it’s their whole marketing device and so I guess doing so unapologetically is the case for now. The best part of the book was really just getting to engage with others in my district to hear what they’re doing.

    This is a quick and easy read about technology in the classroom (it took me less than 3 hours). There are some good practical suggestions in the text that are helpful for novices and experts alike. While I do understand the challenges of writing a tech text that stays up to date as long as possible and the purpose of using referring links, I wish there was less "Learn more about this at ..." and more of those details in the actual book itself. However, this book is a great "shot in the arm" read This is a quick and easy read about technology in the classroom (it took me less than 3 hours).

    Solid book overall, but most of the approaches that are recommended in this book should be in routine use in the classroom already. I recommend this text for those who aren’t using tech at all or are in a school that just became 1:1, otherwise you can just visit is website for ideas and save some money.

    Tons of interesting ideas and tools (though not necessarily how to implement them). Read with a browser open and bookmark everything he gives that might be useful. There aren't necessarily ways to implement the ideas, but that's a good thing too, the ideas are flexible and bare so you can firm them to your subject area Tons of interesting ideas and tools (though not necessarily how to implement them).

    Great ideas to help a teacher add technology to the classroom and make lessons become experiences. Clear instructions and ideas help teacher think of new ideas and convince them to be better.
