Drawing from information presented at a conference sponsored by the Harvard Graduate School of Education and the Mid-Atlantic Regional Technology in Education Consortium, this book provides a hands-on resource filled with illustrative examples of best practices that are grounded in real-life case studies of technology-based educational innovation - from networking a failing school district in New Jersey to using computer visualization to teach scientific inquiry in Chicago. It also addresses key themes such as coping with change, building human capacity and effective decision-making.
