This quote is from a review of Juliani's book:

“Inquiry is the engine that drives innovation,” writes AJ Juliani, a Technology Staff Developer, consultant, and former teacher who lives out this truth and delves into it in Inquiry and Innovation in the Classroom. AJ’s expertise in fostering students’ curiosity and passion will guide educators in creating progressive inquiry-based learning environments and preparing students for the future. AJ’s book is essential reading for anyone with a desire to change education–and the world–for the better!”–Angela Maiers, Choose2Matter founder and author of The Passion-Driven Classroom
