Library specialist and National Board Certified Teacher Johanna Riddle draws on twenty-five years of education experience to show teachers how to update the curriculum for twenty-first-century learning in her new book, Engaging the Eye Generation.

"We have to link real learning to real lives," Johanna writes in the Introduction to her book. "If we genuinely want to reach our students where they are, show them how to apply technology meaningfully and substantively, and encourage independent, cricial, and creative thinking, we must be prepared to help them navigate life in the twenty-first century."
