"Oversold and Underused" by Larry Cuban

Off the topic of my dissertation, my doctorate cohort has a book club where we read an Ed Tech related book every month and then discuss, usually over some very good food :)

Currently, I am reading Oversold and Underused: Computers in the Classroom by Larry Cuban. So far, I read the intro and Ch.1. I read fast don't I? LOL. Anyway, the first chapter is about the state of California and how as the tech hub of the nation (since it has Silicon Valley) its schools are affected by being in the midst of the nation's center of computer technology. Also, how racial inequality still exists, and how technology seems non-existent in such schools. Very interesting read so far. I'll tell you more once I read more.
