Review quote

"This book provides a powerful set of metaphors and linkages for thinking about technology in relation to education. It urges us to move beyond questions of instructional efficiency or the wonders of new technologies to consider the sociopolitical origins and implications of computing practices." -- Bertram Bruce, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign "A highly original collection of essays on computers in schools and educational settings, this book causes us to question the contemporary verities about computers and schools. The essays definitely bring perspectives not usually seen in discussions of computers in education. A refreshing critical perspective on a topic that receives little criticism." -- Philip Altbach, Boston College
