- "All in all, this well-designed book presents an ideal quantity of information on sensibly employing mobile devices in education, 'ideal' because there is sufficient guidance to get one started while avoiding overload but also engaging with teachers who have a higher level of IT experience as well as giving teachers a spring-board from which to develop their own ideas with their students. Highly recommended!"
