Summary Read First Chapter image missing

With a focus on educational computing, this book examines how technological practices align with or subvert existing forms of dominance. Examines the important question: Is the enormous financial investment school districts are making in computing technology a good idea?

"This book provides a powerful set of metaphors and linkages for thinking about technology in relation to education. It urges us to move beyond questions of instructional efficiency or the wonders of new technologies to consider the sociopolitical origins and implications of computing practices." -- Bertram Bruce, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Is the enormous financial investment school districts are making in computing technology a good idea? With a focus on educational computing, Education/Technology/Power examines how technological practices align with or subvert existing forms of dominance.

"A highly original collection of essays on computers in schools and educational settings, this book causes us to question the contemporary verities about computers and schools. The essays definitely bring perspectives not usually seen in discussions of computers in education. A refreshing critical perspective on a topic that receives little criticism." -- Philip Altbach, Boston College
