About Teaching Digital Natives: Partnering for Real Learning:  
“Marc Prensky’s understanding of how school-age digital natives learn underpins his prescient ‘pedagogy of partnering.’ He looks to the learner as the first consideration in the educational equation. The insightful advice and gentle guidance Marc provides classroom teachers directly assist them in moving powerful digital tools into the right hands…their students’! Marc’s understanding that the pedagogy of partnering is built on a relationship of co-learning is fundamental to the 21st-century classroom. This book looks to the future with an urgent spirit of possibility and promise!” (David Engle, Superintendent )
