Why Computers Put Our Children's Education at Risk

Book - 1998
Rate this:
Are computers effective learning tools for young children? Can computers help our children to learn to read and write, and think? This is the first book ever to address these questions. Drawing upon hundreds of international studies, as well as first-hand observations and accounts from classrooms across North America, the authors discover some important, and at times alarming answers. Groundbreaking in the depth and rigor of its research, credible in its conclusions, this book is essential reading for parents, teachers, and policymakers. It will change dramatically the way we think about the place of computers in our children's education.
