Reviews

"For serious scholars, researchers, and practitioners in the field of educational technology, this is the book to own. It makes reading about the field exciting as well as informative and provides the reader with insights and understandings by one of the field's leading authorities. This may be the first book of its kind that is a true page-turner."

Phillip Harris, Ed.D., Executive Director of AECT

"Foundations of Educational Technology alleviates the fear that teaching novices the basics in the field of educational technology must be reduced to simplified models and procedures. This textbook manages to embrace the breadth and depth of educational technology while providing understandable definitions, examples, and exercises."

Dr. Monica Tracey, Wayne State University, USA

"New technologies to improve teaching and learning are emerging at an unprecedented speed. So is our understanding of how people learn. There is a need for works which are both accessible in approach and profound in content, so that more beginning students of educational technology and more non-academic stakeholders can benefit from them. Education policy makers, practitioners (including teachers and school administrators), and readers with cross-disciplinary interest in educational technology will find that this book, the second edition of a book that I translated into Chinese, meets their needs."

Youqun Ren, Professor and Vice President of East China Normal University, Shanghai, China
