Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“At a time when schools are changing quickly, understanding technology’s role in our 21st century education system is important to everyone. The chapters in Nancy Walser’s engaging, informative collection cover virtual classes, online testing, Web tools like blogs, educational video games, and more. The strengths and weaknesses of these innovations are illuminated with wit and insight.” — Andrew Zucker, senior research scientist, Concord Consortium

“Nancy Walser has compiled a comprehensive and engaging book on the potential of technology for learning. From blogs and wikis, to mobile phones and games, technology is not only a motivational force for students, but also creates deeper, richer, and more authentic possibilities for building knowledge in ways that challenge our traditional assumptions about educating for the future.” — Margaret Honey, president and CEO, New York Hall of Science
