"Imagine giving students the opportunity to learn anytime and anywhere. While 'ubiquity' is not a learning function per se, it is an overarching and desirable quality of tools that support project learning. From handheld devices to Web-based applications, look for the tools that help student be more mobile and learn wherever they are, whenever they want, and more frequently, with whomever they want." Suzie Boss & Jane Krauss ~ Reinventing Project-Based

"Rewriting is the essence of writing." ~ William Zinsser, On Writing Well
