Chapter One

It is easy to make change.
Change happens.

Even if we sit still . . . do nothing . . . change happens.

It is more difficult to make good change.
Change that makes life better. Change that endures.
Change that persists.

This book is about making good change by combining technologies with an emphasis upon literacy.

Making good change in schools is much more challenging than most policy makers and outsiders seem to understand.

We have decades of excellent research studies identifying which change strategies work and which fail. We have seen the folly of bandwagons and technological panaceas. We should have learned by now about making change that persists.

Been there.
Done that.

Sadly, much of the research on making good change has been widely ignored during the current rush to network schools.
