Description

Managing Educational Technology examines the ways in which businesses, universities, and schools can work together to integrate the use of technology in the education sector.

The design and implementation of educational technology is a multi-billion dollar industry, yet there remains a disconnect between the various stakeholders. By examining the different cultures and constraints on each party in the system, the authors identify the bottlenecks and obstacles that need to be overcome in order to strengthen their partnerships for the benefit of all. Presenting the stories of three technology companies, students will be able to follow their experiences integrating their products into schools, and will be able to discuss, analyze, and evaluate the challenges and opportunities these companies face firsthand. End-of-chapter questions guide readers to consider alternative actions, as well as identifying steps for additional growth.

Any student of educational technology, educational leadership or business will benefit from this insightful investigation of business-university-school partnerships.
