Asal and Harwood explore how today's information technology is changing how we educate and are educated. Focusing on the United States, with useful insights from the classroom digital revolution in a few other key places (the United Kingdom, Australia, and India), the authors investigate the impact of today's technologies on education ― how they impact teachers and teaching, children and learning, and the intersection of teaching and learning. For example, they tell us what the educational impact of having over 60% of America online is. The authors explain exactly how new technologies are changing the learning environment in and out of the classroom with a focus on the effects on K-12 education.

Chapters include vignettes about children who are integrating information technologies into their lives at school and at home and those children who for a variety of reasons, most notably, socio-economic, have found themselves excluded as full members of the first digital generation. There are also accounts from K-12 teachers who are incorporating technology into their classroom environments. Using closed-circuit cameras, electronic cheating, and distance learning are all also discussed at length.

First, I would like to point out that this book was poorly edited. There were a number of grammatical and spelling errors that were overlooked and are distracting to the overall message of the book. Furthermore, the inclusion of numerous "ums" in the interview transcripts from students and teachers make the quotes difficult to read.

With that said, I agree with many of the points the authors emphasized in this book. I think it's great that they look at technology in classrooms through the point of view of students as well as teachers as opposed to solely from the perspective of "experts" and researchers. As an educator, hearing students voice concerns about things such as their teachers knowing less about technology than they do makes me reevaluate my own classroom practices. I also enjoyed reading about the victories as well as concerns of fellow teachers as they navigate this new era of education.

The authors also offer unique and effective ideas on both sides of the distance learning argument and include a few excellent web resources for educators to utilize. Furthermore, their conclusion gives readers a concrete and valuable argument for the need to truly integrate technology in to mainstream classrooms. This is a must-read for teachers who are on the fence about whether or not they should be doing more to utilize technology in the classroom or who are trying to present a case to school administration for better access to technology.

One complaint I did have about the book is the language it uses concerning education. It seems to focus on teachers as "information-givers" and students as "information-gatherers" rather than trying to achieve higher-order skills with our students. The other downfall of this book is that it makes excellent arguments about how vital technology is in classrooms, but it doesn't do enough to help educators figure out how to actually achieve that goal. Therefore, this book is a great starting point for educators, but if you are looking for a book to help give you inspiration on how to integrate technology into your lesson plans you may want to look elsewhere.

While I believe that the publisher has done this book (and the authors) an extreme disservice in its substandard editing, I found this book to be extremely informative and cutting edge in its analysis of the integration of technology in a classroom setting. As an educator myself, it certainly has provided me with new insight. Harwood and Asal have provided a quality analysis, and I look forward to their next installment ...

I'm sure the authors probably have interesting information to convey. However, the book contains so many distracting errors in grammar, usage, and punctuation that reading the book is a chore. I finally just stopped reading. I counted 10 errors on page 53 alone.
