Bridget Somekh draws on her experience of researching the introduction of ICT into education to look at ICT development over the last twenty years. The book provides a fascinating, in-depth analysis of the nature of learning, ICT pedagogies and the processes of change for teachers, schools and education systems. It covers the key issues relating to the innovation of ICT that have arisen over this period, including:
the process of change
educational vision for ICT
teacher motivation and engagement
the phenomenon of `fit' to existing practices
policy and evaluation of its implementation
students' motivation and engagement
the penetration of ICT into the home
online learning and the `disembodied' teacher.
