In spite of all the hype about the Internet and the ways networks are changing the face of education, there is surprisingly little information of pragmatic value to teachers. This book addresses that problem head on.

Electronic Networks is a book written by practicing classroom teachers about actual instructional computing projects in real classrooms. Rather than talk about "the classroom of the future," the authors provide the help teachers need to integrate instructional technologies in their classrooms. They do so by addressing the real problems and real successes of teaching in networked environments.

One way to read this book is to look for specific conditions and activities that ensure success with computers. Taken as a whole, the book is an argument for building a human infrastructure at the same pace we are installing computers and writing; for developing effective ways to assess whether students are truly benefiting from technology; and for addressing issues of equitable use.
