All teachers who are struggling with the daunting task of how best to use the power of today's technologies in their classrooms will benefit by reading the stories of these pioneers who have faced and overcome many of the obstacles that all teachers confront as they try to make education more relevant and effective for today's students. -- Peter J. Dirr, director of Research, Cable in the Classroom Major technological innovation and the resulting change on behavior and systems always seem to polarize opinions. The advent of computer technology has led to euphoria of possibilities for educational improvement and stinging criticism that the potential has not been reached. Trying to change conditions that make up the status quo takes time and patience and is a long-term effort. This excellent compilation of technology success stories shows that there is merit to thoughtful consideration of valid criticism, that technology leaders are beginning to recognize that they need to manage change in a stylistic manner, and that they are working hard to establish policies and conditions that allow technology to play an integral role in educational improvement. -- Lan W. Neugent, assistant superintendent for Technology, Virginia State Department of Education This important book documents cases in which learning technologies have made substantial improvements in educational outcomes...Our challenge is to understand how to adapt these successful cases broadly, to enable new interactive tools, media, and environments to reach their full potential to aid students and teachers. -- Chris Dede, Timothy E. Wirth Professor in Learning Technologies, Harvard University
