With an Introduction by Dr. Paul Levinson, author of Digital McLuhan
Taming the Beast is a rare blend of philosophical reflection, earnest wit, and hard-nosed guide. It casts a discerning eye on our love-hate affair with technology; reveals 27 ways to see, evaluate, and gain control over the electronic and mechanical extensions that have become such vital parts of our lives; and shows how we can choose new machines wisely for educational, business, and community use. Taming the Beast is essential reading and understanding for educators at all levels, administrators, parents, policy and decision makers, the media, and all citizens who recognize the extraordinary potential—and impact—of technology on education and society.
