    DescriptionThis book provides a much needed critical perspective on the use of digital technology in education. Drawing on a wealth of theoretical and empirical work, it examines the stakeholders in education technology, the struggles to settle how technology should be used in education, and the questions that underpin these debates: What, exactly, is the purpose of education? How can we use technology to achieve it? Whose answers to these questions win out in civic discussion, and whose win in the marketplace? With chapters covering everything from single-school studies to international political initiatives, The Politics of Education and Technology lays bare the messy realities of technology use in education and their implications for contemporary society.
