  • Step-by-step instructions that take the mystery out of using each e-tool;
  • Lesson connections and lists of classroom-proven ideas for applying each e-tool across the curriculum;
  • Backdoor links to the special services and discounts available to teachers for many of the digital tools profiled in this book;
  • Standards-based assessment rubrics and strategies (including how to implement digital portfolios) to help you meet twenty-first century classroom instructional goals; and
  • Links to Steve Johnson’s website and blog for news and updates on incorporating technology-based activities into your lessons.
