Editorial Reviews

Review

"As is expected from Brookings, Darrell West provides us with a clear, authoritative, non-dogmatic, up-to-date account of all the ways in which new technologies are altering the K-12 education landscape."―Paul E. Peterson,, Director, Harvard University's Program on Education Policy and Governance



"Darrell West's book recognizes that if students don't learn the way we teach, then we should teach the way they learn."―Larry Rosenstock, CEO and founding principal, High Tech High



"In this pithy volume, Darrell West offers wise words of both optimism and caution. He notes the promise of new technologies to improve schooling in the twenty-first century, but cautions that these advances will only deliver if accompanied by a tough-minded willingness to rethink the structure and culture of schools and school systems. Policymakers and educators alike would do well to heed the lessons West offers."―Frederick M. Hess, director of education policy studies, American Enterprise Institute

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I almost gave this a three-star rating. The book covers a lot of literature. It's a mile wide and -- while more than an inch deep -- not as interesting as I'd hoped. It's balanced and sensible but didn't (for me anyway) capture either the excitement of tech enthusiasts or the passion of the tech skeptics.
