About the Authors
This book is an insightful read about the use of technology as a powerful tool to infuse global knowledge and skills – not only in our classrooms, but more broadly for the teaching profession. It speaks to teachers and will help them address their research, curriculum development, professional development and real classroom situations to enhance their practice and impact student learning.

Educational technology grabs headlines as advocates and critics vie for advantage. But Cibulka and Cooper do a real service by cutting through that and instead diving into what it will take to make it work for students.
— Andrew Rotherham, co-founder and partner, Bellwether Education
This insightful book bridges a gap between dedicated technologists and educators; patently, the fissure between unquestioning enthusiasm for all-things digital and the uncertainties of schools’ scarcities in funding, including debates about effective instructional practices and material. Cibulka and Cooper engineered a conceptual architecture for which chapter authors cannily link the promise of technology with teaching and learning and reality of schools’ ongoing financial and technological challenges. This book offers readers a comprehensive overview of the core conditions for technology use in learning, while acknowledging the political, cultural, and human influences on schools’ efforts in spanning the digital divide.
