Booknews
Commemorates the tenth anniversary of the Apple Classrooms of Tomorrow (ACOT) Project. While recognizing that technology is not a panacea for education's problems, the contributors shed light on ways in which it can serve as a powerful catalyst for student learning. This collection of personal essays is intended as an early report on the widespread use of digital technology in schools, and as commentary on the larger drama of educational change at the dawn of a new century.
