Reviews and Testimonials

The possibilities and progress are limited only by our imagination and creativity. Research, such as that in the present work, serves to analyze, evaluate, assess, and improve some of the new functions, roles, and perceptions. Collaborations, critiques, analyses, and syntheses will develop still further uses, and newer methods and media, on future journeys in education. Indeed, this book of cases celebrates such new journeys. It¡¦s a brave new world, and we are creating it.
