Library Journal Review

Pullen (education, Univ. of Tasmania), Christina Gitsaki (Internet English), and Margaret Baguley (education, Univ. of Southern Queensland) bring together 14 chapter-essays on technology in the service of global education, as considered by 24 Australian-, American-, and British-based subject specialists. The chapters are separated into three distinct sections: leadership issues, practical technoliteracy, and gaming-related literacy. Essays address controversial subjects, like the complications presented by the absence of technology in middle school curriculums and the practicability of gaming's didactic power. Although these specialist-oriented essays offer insightful reflections, the book seems incomplete; another volume is needed to address additional facets of this complex subject.-Savannah Schroll Guz, formerly with Smithsonian Lib., Washington, DC (c) Copyright 2010.
