Reviews

"At its best, technology is about enhancing human interactions. The authors do an outstanding job of demonstrating the connections between research and the most effective uses of technology with families. Early childhood educators can use the experience, knowledge, and perspectives outlined in this book to advance the field's conversations about technology."

--Rhian Evans Allvin, Executive Director, National Association for the Education of Young Children

"Don't think of this as a 'book' in the traditional sense. It's more of a portal to ideas, case studies, and links that further unpackage the myth that using technology with young children is an either/or scenario. This collection of 25 diverse chapters makes it clear that being a media mentor isn't a one-size-fits-all proposition; rather, it's a developmental process. There's something in this book for all of us."

--Warren Buckleitner, Ph.D., Editor of Children's Technology Review
