Rather than focus on technology as a tool to teach with, this text stresses that technology-video, hypermedia, the Internet, etc.-is an excellent tool to learn with. The emphasis is on learning to solve problems. By concentrating on problem solving with several specific media, the authors show how a variety of technologies can be used to engage students in personally and socially constructed meaning. They address the Internet, and how it can be used to foster community building; video, and how naturally students take to being behind the camera; and multimedia, as a new form of interactive literacy.
