“Davis powerfully addresses the human side of technology integration. She moves teachers and school leadership with her passion, while offering real solutions to the issues that arise when integrating technology. Her solutions and ideas focus on improving the discourse between teachers, students, and leadership so that they all work collaboratively in enhancing the learning environment.
