Abstract

A collection of 12 chapters by authors from 10 countries around the world (Germany, Indonesia, Canada, U.S., Mexico, South Africa, Venezuela, Spain and Australia) makes this book very unique. In addition, each chapter has an extensive list of references, increasing the global nature of the work. In the forward, M. Warschauer states, the book will help the reader “better understand the relationship of theory to practice.” (p. xii) The book also gives the reader a sense that no one has a definitive opinion of how best to use technology in education. Chapter One, “Digital Education: Opportunities, Challenges, and Responsibilities,” by M. Thomas, relates a wonderful example, from Stanford University, of what happens when enthusiasm for technology can lead to large expenditures and no results. The rest of the chapters move through theory to applications, giving the reader much to mull over.
