Catlin's Educational Duct Tape: An EdTech Integration Mindset Endorsement: "Education is one ‘make it work’ moment after
another (hence the need for duct tape)! Technology can be incredibly useful, yet the sheer volume of educational technology tools is daunting. In this engaging book, Jake Miller guides teachers through an exploration of technology tools to help them develop more confidence in their selection and use of technology to meet the needs of their students. It isn't about the number of tools you use; it's how you use them that matters!"
