"Every education, business, and community leader who wants to cut through the hype about technology to see where the investment really makes a difference should start with this book."
Alan November, CEO, Educational Renaissance Planners

To commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Apple Classrooms of Tomorrow (ACOT) project, this book brings together a diverse group of educators to reflect on what we know about computer-aided instruction. From the latest research findings to practical classroom experience, it provides an overview of the promise and prospects for technology in education. While the authors recognize that technology itself is not a panacea for schooling's problems, they do shed light on the ways in which it can serve as a catalyst for educational innovation.
