Editorial Reviews

Bena Kallick
“Alan November provides an exceptional lens that clarifies the confusion in the field. Educators know the significance and the impact of technology on education, but many don’t understand how to make good use of technology to further student learning. November presents both the theoretical and practical in such a compelling way that it makes me want to remind educators that we cannot keep doing what we have always done—not with the possibilities that technology opens for us!”
