This book is a wonderful, thought-provoking discussion of new media and technology in higher education.  The author has done thorough research and presents it along with helpful case studies and valuable theoretical insight.

A Top-Notch Assessment of Technology in Education. This was the first time I read a book about new media in education that had substance. Usually, these kinds of books are full of hype. Authors in the tech/education space tend to talk down to readers who don't share their "gotta have the latest bell and whistle" viewpoint. Not Prof. DePietro. He makes a compelling case for when and when not to use devices, platforms, hardware, and software in pedagogy. He is honest about when digital tools work and when they don't. You may not agree with all that he says, and you may find some of his theories progressive -- which I believe is wonderful -- but read this book to get an idea of the interesting and promising potential of media and technology in higher education.

I am a professor at a top-tier institution in the Northeast, who uses technology in the class room a lot. I have been looking for a book that provides an insightful account of the use of both technology and media in the classroom. THIS is it! Depietro presents real world experiences using interactive tools and new media in higher education, as well as fresh theories on the topic. I highly recommend his book.
