  • 'Tap, Click, Read... transforms technology from a distraction into a partner...'

    The wasted potential of millions of our children, including extremely low literacy rates, represents the greatest public health crisis facing our country and our country’s future. Tap, Click, Read, determined to help change this, transforms technology from a distraction into a partner in its wonderfully-written mission to ensure that all our children can reach their potentials.

  • '...a provocative and inspiring guide...'

    For anyone committed to increasing social equity, this book is a provocative and inspiring guide, illuminating how the rapidly changing sea of media and technologies surrounding us both creates and dissolves hurdles for people and communities struggling with access to opportunity. Guernsey and Levine invite–and challenge–readers to embrace a new role as co-creators at its dawn of an innovative learning ecosystem that can transform our ability to create children who succeed as the readers, thinkers and learners of tomorrow.
