Watch IT by Nicholas C. Burbules
Book DescriptionWatch IT is an examination of several critical issues in the potential of new information technology (IT) for education. IT, already central to many aspects of our lives, is rapidly becoming an integral part of teaching and learning. This book takes a close look at the positive and negative consequences of new technologies in the classroom. In a series of interrelated essays, the authors explore such issues as access, credibility, new approaches to reading and writing, the glut of information, privacy, censorship, commercialization, and globalization.
