Mendrinos addresses current education issues while looking forward to the issues that will dominate the early part of the 21st century. She examines anachronistic schools, the resistance to classroom integration of educational technology, disparities in instruction, equity, and access, and the need for teacher training in integrating educational technology into the curriculum. She then challenges the library media specialist to acknowledge, reflect, and act on the research and create teacher partnerships to integrate educational technology in an inquiry-based learning environment that will motivate at-risk students. Extensive lists of Internet addresses and other technology resources and a helpful bibliography of further reading complete the work. This cutting-edge guide provides extensive information, research findings, and practical aplications that will help the library media specialist and teacher to turn at-risk students into successful students through technology.
