About this book


This book advances an alternative reading of the social, political and cultural issues surrounding schools and technology and develops a comprehensive overview of the interplay between policy, practice and identity in school workplaces. It explores how digital technologies have become an integral element of the politics and socially negotiated practices of school workplaces as school campuses are now awash with digital hardware and growing amounts of school work is carried out on a 'virtual' basis.

Michael Phillips is Lecturer in Digital Technologies in the Faculty of Education at Monash University, Australia where his teaching and research focuses on the ways in which people negotiate the use of digital technologies in educational settings. Prior to his current role teaching about and researching the social impacts of emerging educational technology Michael was a secondary school teacher and leader for more than ten years.
