Getting the Buggers Excited About ICT Reviews

'This accessible text offers the reader some excellent ideas to engage and enthuse students in ICT lessons. A coherent introduction works well to de-mythologise the commonly held assumption that ICT is easy to teach and the following chapters cover a range of pertinent aspects in relation to the teaching and use of ICT.'--Sanford Lakoff
