“The book is worth reading and it constitutes a useful source of information for graduate students who are searching for various data and bibliographical information about laptop programs in schools. It is also likely to prove useful to policy makers and school district technology coordinators who can benefit from the various laptop computer experiences at schools described in the book.”E-Learning (2008), Volume 5, Number 4

“The Digital Pencil describes the emergence and use of one-to-one computing programs within education. Written by three researchers whose combined laptop research touched 31,250 students, it is informed by research from 16 major ubiquitous computing projects across nine countries and six US states…The book is written to satisfy both the academic and practitioner audience with extensive citations to theory and research in addition to practical suggestions.”Joan E. Hughes, Literacy (April 2009), Volume 43, Number 1

“For the educators among us who prefer to have a guide when they investigate new uses of technology for teaching and learning, this book serves as a source to understand the power and advantageous use of digital pencils, or portable, digital devices.”Susan Farber, Education Review, January 2010
