Review by: Chip Donohue, Technology in Early Childhood (TEC) Center, Erikson Institut - September 13, 2017
"This book is the next best thing to hanging out with Brian at his school. As your tour guide to intentional and developmentally-informed tech integration, he models the value of sharing learning with others. He offers classroom-tested examples for a whole child/whole teacher approach across the curriculum, throughout the classroom, and all-day long. As your media mentor, he affirms what you already know about early learning, encourages you to embrace your own creativity as you invite the children to express theirs, and offers a gentle nudge to unlock the potential-of the technology, the children, and your teaching."
Review by: Michael Robb, Common Sense Media - September 13, 2017
"Teaching in the Digital Age for Preschool and Kindergarten is an essential resource for educators. It's thoughtfully laid out, well-researched, and most of all-practical. This is not technology for technology's sake; the book highlights how technology expands what can be done in the classroom, and not just substitute for real world experiences."
Review by: Vikas Gupta, Wonder Workshop - September 13, 2017
"A growing number of teachers are introducing technology to early learners to increase engagement and effectiveness in the classroom. This book provides teachers with practical tips and tricks for using technology in meaningful ways as an everyday tool for teaching and for enriching the classroom experience."
Review by: Ann Gadzikowski - September 13, 2017
"Teaching in the Digital Age for Preschool and Kindergarten is chock full of valuable information, helpful tips, and terrific resources for intentional teachers seeking wise uses of technology in a developmentally appropriate classroom. Brian Puerling's strategies are both inventive and accessible, based on his own hands-on experience working directly with teachers and children. Highly recommended!"
Review by: Bob Gander, University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse - September 13, 2017
"In a very practical way this book provides context for using technology-for families, parents, teachers-which is essential when technology can be a Pandora's box in the wrong hands.  Brian Puerling's strategies support and encourage children's curiosity for things they could not otherwise experience. Never does he use technology as a reward or punishment, rather simply another tool for learning and enjoyment."
Review by: Matt Glover - September 13, 2017
"Brian Puerling understands young children.  His foundation as an early childhood educator allows him to show how technology can enhance learning while not letting the technology take the place of important early childhood experiences. Teaching in the Digital Age for Preschool and Kindergarten is a great resource for teachers who want to use technology in a way that is developmentally appropriate."
Review by: Alyse Eisenberg, Center for Jewish Education, Jewish Federation of Greater Da - September 13, 2017
"This book is my go to when I want to share the best way for educators to explore creativity with their students and their families. As a technology novice, the book gives me the courage to explore creative ways to approach key concepts and ideas. It's a tool that enables my work to go deeper and meet teachers, students and families where they are. It's a must have resource for our digital natives and especially our novices."
