Too much of the debate over technology in education has been about whether it is needed. Andrew Zucker cogently makes the case for shifting our focus to how to use technology effectively. It is time to move beyond techno-cheerleading and focus on the educational leadership and vision it takes to use technology to transform learning. Finding that thoughtful balance is why every educator and policymaker should read Transforming Schools with Technology. --Keith R. Krueger, CEO, Consortium for School Networking
Transforming Schools with Technology shows how technology must be an integral part of any effort to redesign and improve schools. It emphasizes the importance of visionary leaders and how with the smart use of digital technologies necessary reforms can occur in our schools and classrooms. --Nancy Roche, Board Chair, Forsyth County Schools, Georgia
