“In the midst of my enthusiasm for the digital ‘goodies,’ Sheryl and Lani introduced a solid foundation of theory and evidence to back up the need for me (and you, of course) to be connected educators—to begin a personal cultural revolution and to be part of the wider revolution that’s taking place around the globe. And they backed up their message with anecdotes and real-life examples.”

“Regardless of how deeply you want to become committed to the constantly available professional development that’s available—free—for anyone with time and access to the Internet, you’ll find something of value here. The authors do a good job of laying out both the why and the how-to of connected learning.”
