Synopsis

The Politics of Education and Technology Conflicts, Controversies, and Connections by Neil Selwyn

This book examines the struggles over technology's use in education, digging into what the purpose of education is, how we should achieve it, who the stakeholders are, and whose voices win out. Drawing on theoretical and empirical work, it lays bare the messy realities of technology use in education and their implications for contemporary society.
