Publisher Comments:

In this extensive collection of select articles, reports, and essays, leading experts and distinguished authors explore educational technology and its impact on learning. They draw from the most current research and best practices to examine:

  • Technology and reform, including film and radio in the classroom, research from the Apple Classrooms of Tomorrow, statewide instructional technology programs, technology in the community, and evaluation

  • Teaching with technology, plus the evolution of technology- and student-centered classrooms, lessons from an on-line community of education professionals, the integration of technology with teacher preparation, and Internet use by teachers

  • Equitable access and technical literacy, including how to invest in technology, evaluate content, bridge the digital divide, engage students in a knowledge society, and create the virtual high school

Filled with diverse perceptions and insights, The Jossey-Bass Reader on Technology and Learning will inspire teachers, administrators, superintendents, school technology directors, and policy makers to become thoughtful leaders in innovation and change.
