The author has written a new and unique text for courses in Computers in Education or Instructional Media and Technology. The purpose of this text is to address what technology teachers should know and be able to do, but the focus is on learners and learning rather than on the technology itself. The book is unique in that it presents the students’ learning goals first rather than the technology tool, thereby focusing on the learner and the learning rather than the technology.
The examples throughout the chapters present ideas for tasks that can be completed with a variety of tools rather than one specific tool that teachers may not have access to. Each chapter includes a brief summary of research from educational technology, learning theory, and other areas to build a foundation for chapter examples and activities. The chapters also include examples for learning in a variety of contexts and content areas and can be applied easily to teaching other ideas and subjects. A unique chapter (Chapter 9) on teacher productivity helps support future educators in their everyday tasks.
The book illustrates what technology-enhanced learning can be like today and prepares teachers and administrators for what may come tomorrow.
Some of the pedagogical features in the book include:
Cases–These appear at the beginning of each chapter and provide a framework for the chapter discussion that follows.
~These cases are compelling snapshots from real classrooms that help students to connect educational concepts to the real world.
~Related questions within and at the end of each chapter encourage the reader to think critically about the material and its related application to the classroom.
Meet the Needs of Today’s Students feature–Each chapter contains margin notes to help the readers address the learning needs of ALL students including those with diverse needs and English Language Learners.

“I wish that this text had been available a year ago for the courses I will be teaching starting next week. It provides the type of approach that my students truly need. The focus is on teaching, learning, instructional design...and then technology....What my students need is what this book provides — a true look at the why and how of technology integration and the relationship to higher order thinking skills. I am very impressed.”
-David Bullock, Ed.D.
Portland State University
“I would definitely adopt this book and encourage the department not only to adopt it, but also to use it as a catalyst for curriculum redesign. I think we could easily combine it with a foundations course and TRULY integrate and model technology.”
