The authors' vision for education in light of technology was interesting and pragmatic, but research on teachers was lacking and sweeping generalizations were often made. I'd like to read a book about how teachers can be tapped to aid politicians, educational leaders and families in creating this new vision for education.

I wish I found more in this book that was new, because I really wanted to. I found it to be a more intellectual approach to the topics introduced in Disrupting Class. To that end, the authors write in a much more scholarly (and much less accessible) way.

I'm mostly going to focus in this review on what I liked best. Towards the end, the authors discuss what might be lost when technology permits an education system more like that also described in Disrupting Class. The things they worry might be
I'm trying to get this review out in a coherent and logical manner, but my mind is messed up because I just finished reading it.

Okay, so. I wasn't that impressed with this book. One of the major problems with technology books (especially as they pertain to education) is that they're outdated the minute they're published. It's really only a problem if the book insists on being specific on the kinds of technology. This one isn't as egregious as another I read last year, but I cringed quite a bit w
This book provides a clear overview of how technology is affecting education at the present, and uses historical precedent to predict how it may influence education in the future. It identifies both the potential and the pitfalls of technology for learning, and suggests ways that we might capitalize on the former and avoid the latter. It's an excellent book to contextualize the present state of edtech for newcomers to the field.

Collins & Halverson step back and take broad view of where education has come from before then moving forward and prognosticating on the future of education "in the age of technology." I think they wisely have chapters early on called "The Technology Enthusiasts' Argument" and "The Technology Skeptics' Argument" to sort of level the playing field for biases and assumptions before moving forward and describing the benefits and pitfalls that technology will possibly bring to the field of educa ...more
I had to read this book as part of my graduate course. It certainly made me think about how and why we should be utilizing technology in our classrooms. The authors new vision for the future of our educational system is interesting to think about.

Not a bad little read. Let about tech and more about the history of education and educational reform movement. Contradictions to how technology can help and the limitations of CMC, but this was also published in 2010 which gets dated as more technology emerges. I would recommend!
The author made a few good points, and tried to be balanced about the good and bad of educational technology, but by the end his ideas for improvements in education did not address practical concerns sufficiently and were unpersuasive.
doesn't give a lot of specifics, but it is a nice review of the philosophical history of education in america -- how it's changed over the years and how it will change in the future. some definite food for thought here.
I respected their even handed approach to laying out both sides and the middle ground. I did not agree with everything, but was surprised at how much I did agree with. I will probably blog on a few key points.
Angela Brewington
The authors propose some radical ideas for the way technology could mold education in the future. It will be interesting to see if they are correct in their predictions or not.

This book made me glad that our family is unschooling. It introduced concepts of "just in time" learning, customization, and "scaffolding" to me.
Very thought provoking - inspired to be in the "Knowledge Revolution" - after seeing how the world changed after the "Industrial Revolution"
A simple book. Required reading. Nothing to blow me away.
