Education and Technology Key Issues and Debates by Neil Seiwyn pdf free download. This book addresses a topic that lies at the heart of contemporary education.

Indeed, educational technology tends to be something that is approached in a routine rather than reflective way by many teachers, students and parents.

whether a certain technology is a ‘good’ or a ‘bad’ thing.

In this sense, finding the time to disengage ourselves from our own personal experiences of the digital age and think dispassionately about the role of technology in society is, in Joost van Loon’s
words, ‘something we cannot do often enough’ (van Loon 2008, p. 4).
