Technology in Our Schools: A Call for a Cost/Benefit Analysis
Wilhelm, Jeffrey D.
Voices from the Middle, v17 n3 p44-46 Mar 2010

He makes the case that no one can be considered fully literate without a familiarity with and appreciation for our culture's most powerful tools of communication. Here are some solid and persuasive arguments.
