    1. If you review the DH literature from just before the field’s “next big thing” apotheosis, you will find a deep undercurrent of anxiety: will our work ever be understood, valued, or recognized by our disciplinary colleagues?

      This anxiety is exactly why we need to add digital humanities to the curriculum. There are scholars and professionals out there with information that will benefit students, especially considering the rapid development of technology in our digital age.

    2. a majority believe they understand technology better than their teachers. For such a student, imagine how it must sound to hear her teacher talking up “computers” and “digital tools.”

      It is frustrating when teachers talk about digital tools and computers when they are not able to use/teach them effectively. However, when a teacher does know what they are talking about it is powerful. Students assume they are know everything about digital tools and when a teacher effectively introduces something new, it lends validity to not only the teacher but also the topic of digital humanities. The point highlights the importance of training/educating teachers about the digital world, specifically tools involved with digital humanities.

    3. Indeed, the skills students want are those which would allow them to create their own digital work, and perhaps even their own tools—in other words, they want to learn to engage with, and not simply use, technology in the classroom

      I think this is one of the top reasons why Digital Humanities is so important in higher education. DH allows students to explore technology in the classroom so that students can become comfortable enough to use that same technology on their own for later classes or for their future careers.

      I think it would helpful to have a chapter summary here as it is useful when studying to recap what was in each chapter.
