Overall, I felt that Selwyn provided a fair and accurate overview of a complex topic and I believe he supported his ultimate point that there is no straightforward answer to any of these questions. His intention seems to provide an unbiased overview of the pros and cons of a particular viewpoint and I feel he does this fairly. My only criticism is that Selwyn, possibly due to page limit constraints, was not able to go into significant depth on any of the issues. However, his book provides a valuable contribution to the education technology literature by highlighting key points and debates on issues related to the use of technology in education.
I personally felt that this was a great book because I have recently been debating a lot about the benefits of technology in education. This book helped me see the pros and cons of the use of technology and its potential as a mode of transformation of the education system. The debates that were discussed were very philosophical in nature and there are really no cut and dry answers to the questions that Selwyn poses in his book. If you are looking for a book that is going to give you cut and dry what you are supposed to believe then this is not a book for you. But if you are looking for a read that will truly expand your understanding and thought process around the use of technology in the education system then this is a book for you. I have given this book a rating of a four because I personally found it a very useful tool in influencing my current and future practices as an educator. The debates that are discussed in this book bring up many definitions, theories, and ideologies that are relevant to all educators. If someone is looking for a book debating about cyber bullying, internet privacy, and how technology can be utilized to enhance the learning of children with special needs then this is not the book to read. The amount of issues dealing with technology and education are far too in depth and numerous to completely discuss in one book but I feel that Selwyn did a good job of portraying the major philosophical debates that are driving the modern and future influence of technology to the educational system.
Technology is defined by Selwyn on a basic level as, "the process by which humans modify nature to meet their needs and wants (p. 6)." Technology can be separated into different basic subtopics to include such things as paper and pencil. Technology is also defined in terms of processes and practices that help people develop skills and knowledge. Digital technology is the term used for modern technological devices including information communications and computer based systems. The focus of the book is on digital technologies in education. Education is defined by Selwyn as "the conditions and arrangements where learning takes place (p. 5)." The book's focus is on the educational system that includes the social context, economic circumstances, gender, class, race, political aspects of society, and social systems in education.
Selwyn does a great job of exploring the way technology has changed the way educators view technology while also providing ways in which technology can be better used for everyone. The book is a text and reads as such. This is not a light, bed time reading but a valuable sorce of information to educators.
