This chapter deals with forward-looking implementation of technology to improve teaching and learning in the increasingly digital world. It first reviews technologies such as online video, podcasts, digital textbooks, collaboration webs, the personal web, mobile devices, data mashups, and collective intelligence. It then discusses the challenges of technology including the digital divide, academic dishonesty, costs, ethics, accessibility for the disabled, and assessing a technology's effectiveness. The chapter also asks readers to examine where they fall on the technology continuum, ranging from Luddite to enthusiast, but cautions that their choices should ultimately be based on becoming better teachers.
