I really enjoyed how the authors included real life examples in many of the chapters showing how technology is used in the classroom.
One criticism I have of the book is that I found the book to start of a bit slow over the first four chapters. My expectation was to get straight into learning how to use technology in my classroom, but there was some information in the beginning chapters (such as the history of the computers and very brief discussions of applications) that I thought could have been in the appendix or should have received more attention (such as the discussion of using spreadsheets).
In conclusion, I believe the book had a lot of good and relevant information. I would recommend this book to teachers, school administrators, graduate students in the field of education and educational technology, and technology coordinators. I also believe some parts of the book could also read by parents.
If you want a history of technology in education, (and in in general), this is the book for you. If not, keep looking.
