What People are Saying About This

American schools are making a multi-billion dollar bet: if we wire our classrooms, students will be better learners and smarter people. It may be too late to ask whether this is really wise. If it isn't, educators, school board members, and parents need to read Larry Cuban's book--and then begin a serious conversation about whether more computers will really make for better brains.

Diane Ravitch

Larry Cuban's reflections on the uses of new technologies in the classroom give us good reason to pause and think again about where we go from here, rather than be swept along by enthusiasm for the latest innovations. A thoughtful and timely book.
Diane Ravitch, New York University
