He’s in touch with what’s happening in actual classrooms and doesn’t labor under the delusion that change comes quickly to schools. He presents 21st century learning concepts in a way that makes sense and gets the reader excited about them. His advice to try to only ask students questions to which you don’t know the answer was thought-provoking; the guidelines for choosing activities and assignments that matter are simple and easy to remember.

Doug Johnson’s “The Classroom Teacher’s Technology Survival Guide” is a thoughtful guide to proper technology usage in a twenty first century classroom for the beginner teacher. Throughout the book, Johnson outlines the skills that both teachers and students should be aware of with the technology that there school should or should not possess.

This more of a sort of manual as opposed to a book as it continues specific how to’s and instructions. He places an emphasis on the idea that the teacher is also a learner when it comes to technology as it is constantly changing. He brings this idea into play when he talks about administrators often wanting technology just for the sake of having technology instead of it actually being beneficial to the school and the administrators that are opposed to technology because it is new, both being dangerous mindsets. In each chapter, he provides checklists for skills that both teachers and students should possess in regards to individual technologies that he discusses. Whilst talking about the administrators that oppose technology, Johnson gives a clear outline if someone (student or faculty) is found to be abusing technology privileges in their school district. Finally, the information on the sides in tandem with the useful survival tips help provide a new teacher with helpful advice.

No book is perfect however and Johnson’s book is no exception. He does not quite elaborate on what a student/teacher should do if they struggle to check off certain skills within the checklists for individual technologies. He also does not elaborate on what skills that teachers of certain subjects need to learn. Finally, he fails to elaborate on how to deal with administrators that on both ends of the extreme spectrum whether they are for or against technology as a whole. Thus, I would recommend this book only for relatively new teachers who are looking to integrate technology into their courses. A teacher that is already rather tech-savvy may find this book to be a bit underwhelming as their own skills surpass those listed in the book.

I decided to read this book in order to gain more understanding about the role of technology for classroom teachers. As a Digital Learning Coach, many of the teachers I work with have reason after reason for why they cannot integrate technology into their lessons. This book provided positive solutions to this problem, reasons why these concerns come up in the first place, and resources that can help teachers of any tech level. I highly recommend any tech teacher, leader, or coach to give it a read.

Doug Johnson's THE CLASSROOM TEACHER'S TECHNOLOGY SURVIVAL GUIDE paints with a broad brush. Its target audience? Just grades kindergarten to 12, is all. That information, on the upper right-hand corner of the cover, should be a hint. This is a great soup-to-nuts BASIC primer on all things technology as they now stand in the spring of 2012. Meaning? It's a great gift especially for a technophobe teacher OR a teacher whose idea of "technology" begins and ends with e-mail and word processing. If you're looking for greater sophistication and depth, you're probably downloading the wrong book.

The chapters cover some basics such as why teachers should be technologically savvy, basic terms of the field, and basic on-line tools (blogs, RSS feeds, wikis, social bookmarking sites, etc.). Note the word "basic." Chapter Four moves to what we should expect from our students and how the Internet giveth and the Internet taketh away (which is KJV-speak for, "Wow! This is a researcher's dream as well as a plagiarism policeman's nightmare!"). Chapter Five is useful because Johnson moves to technology-enhanced assignments with something he calls the "Four A's": assignments, activities, assessment, and attitude. Schools that are giving the green light to technology (a lap top for every student, cell phones are OK in the classroom, etc.) might do well to heed Chapter Six, which deals in how to manage disruptive technologies in the classroom.

In Chapter Seven, the word "basic" is forsaken for "commonsense" so Johnson can talk about security, password, backups, viruses, data privacy, and personal privacy. I'm always amused when I see the word "privacy" and the electronic world used in the same breath. As we all know, "privacy" has been on the virtual run for years and is fast running out of real estate as giant firms refine their methods of collecting data through clicks and cookies and whatnot. Oh, well.

Overall, a worthwhile primer -- simple, straightforward, informative. Just don't put it in the hands of a teacher who is already wired, connected, and geeked out with the latest stuff. They're past this point.
