Recensioner i media

A must read. Warschauer's is the most intellectually serious discussion in print of the current movement towards laptops in education. - Seymour Papert, Professor Emeritus, Massachusetts Institute of Technology ""A lot has been written about computers in schools, but Warschauer's Laptops and Literacy is now a definitive source. His excellent book, though partly a cautionary tale, is yet full of a rare commodity these days, optimism about the possibilities of our schools."" - James Paul Gee, Tashia Morgridge Professor of Reading, University of Wisconsin
