This timely and thoughtful book argues that technology can and will play a central role in efforts to achieve crucial education goals, and that it will be an essential component of further improvement and transformation of schools. Author Andrew A. Zucker develops his arguments by drawing on the most up-to-the-minute information about digital technologies and what we know about how they affect teaching and learning in real schools. The book is marked not only by Zucker's cutting-edge sophistication about digital technologies, but also by his longstanding engagement with and commitment to K-12 education. It is destined to be recognized as the crucial volume on digital technology and education, and it will be essential reading for school leaders and teachers, policymakers, and those members of the general public-among them parents and engaged citizens-for whom the fate of education is a vital concern.

MEDIA REVIEWS
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
