Adaptable to any grade level and helpful to general educators and specialists alike, this comprehensive snapshot of technology for today and tomorrow will highlight well-known tools and tactics such as blogs and online journals, as well as introduce innovations new to many classrooms, including distance learning and virtual mentoring programs. Critical information on staying safe online, cyberbullying, and cyberethics also is provided to help educators stay tech-savvy and protect their students while exploring the new horizons technology can provide.
