Abstract

Does it seem that education is somehow always lagging behind the latest technologies? In The Textbook and the Lecture: Education in the Age of New Media, Norm Friesen presents a longue durée study of the historical relationship between education and technologies of reading and writing in order to reframe accusations of "inertia" in education. This is a useful introduction to a media history of education, finds Lavinia Marin, offering insight for researchers and educational practitioners into the longstanding philosophical assumptions underpinning their teaching practice.
