Effective technology implementation in schools leads to significantly higher student achievement and positive financial impact. That is a bold statement, but one with the backing of Project RED, a team that conducted a survey of a thousand schools to find out what makes technology integration work. Project RED has concluded that properly implemented educational technology, especially 1-to-1 programs where technology is continuously accessible, substantially improves student achievement and can be revenue positive at the local, state, and federal levels. The key is successful integration that brings about transformational change.

The TESOL Technology Standards are applicable in a wide range of contexts: foreign language, second language, child, teen, adult, higher education, vocational education, language for specific purposes, and fully online programs; and in settings with low, medium, or high resources and access to communication technologies. Students, teachers, teacher educators, administrators, and researchers will find this an easy guide through the technology standards and how they can be applied in the varied contexts in which language instruction occurs. The book is organized around two strands of standards: Technology Standards for Language Learners and Technology Standards for Language Teachers. Useful supplemental material included for the reader are a comparison of the TESOL Technology Standards with other technology-focused standards, extensive reference lists, a glossary, and an index. Even practitioners with little access to technology resources can apply the standards in their contexts, while those with a great deal of access to technology are encouraged to do as much as their resources will allow. Vignettes provide detail-specific resources, and attempt to offer free and open-source technology alternatives where possible, and in some instances they suggest technology for the physically disabled. Although the vignettes tend to focus on English language learning and teaching, the technology standards can be applied to languages other than English.

Information Technology and Educational Management in the Knowledge Society is an essential reference for both academic and professional researchers in the field of information technology and educational management. Since the mid-1980's, computer assisted educational information systems have been developing in various parts of the world and the knowledge surrounding the development and implementation of these systems has been growing. The papers presented in this volume are the result of an international call for papers addressing the challenges faced by the information technology and education management (ITEM) field in a society where knowledge management is becoming a major issue both in educational and business systems. This state-of-the-art volume presents the proceedings of the 6th International Working Conference on Information Technology in Educational Management, held July 2004 in Spain. The collection will be important not only for information technology and education management experts and researchers, but also for all teachers and administrators interested in this growing field.
