This image shows the cover of the book Educational Duct Tape: An EdTech Integration Mindset. The cover is blue and shows the title in orange lettering on duct tape.

The way that I addressed the problem that I was having in that class 8 years ago (read the image on the cell phone 😂) lit a fire underneath me to do more with educational technology than I had previously considered. And the E + R = O equation frames it perfectly. Grab your copy of the book to learn more about this story, the mindset, and this powerful equation!

It shows a drawing of Jake looking stressed out, a cell phone featuring a Facebook post that reads "Sometimes during my 2nd period class, I legitimately consider curling up on the floor, closing my eyes, and rocking myself." and a large rectangle with the equation E + R = O. Below that equation the text "The Event + Your Response = The Outcome."
