The main focus of this text is on pedagogical goals and student learning first, and then on presenting technology as something that may help teachers and learners reach those goals.  The emphasis in this text is essential for effective technology-enhanced teaching and learning.  Each chapter includes a brief summary of research from educational technology, learning theory, and other areas to build a foundation for chapter examples and activities.  In addition, this text integrates, both explicitly and implicitly, the learning of all students in every chapter.  Not only does this support culturally responsive teaching but it emphasizes teacher responsiveness to all learners.  This is a crucial aspect of learning and reflection for all teacher education students.
