Here's what you say about us...

'There is a real danger that we just plough ahead with ICT without thinking about why we are using it. Chris Abbott's book just might put a brake on that. It is a book for everyone. This is an important book. I cannot recommend it too highly. - Jack Kenny, Online, Times Educational Supplement

'The author succeeds in his aim "to select from the history of technology in education ... in order to uderstand the present" and provides a very readable account of the progress of IT in schools.'N - Diana Blease, British Journal of Educational Technology
