Book Review: Transforming Education with New Media

Mustafa Polat


Peter DePietro’s Transforming Education with New Media: Participatory Pedagogy, Interactive Learning, and Web 2.0 covers multiple aspects of integrating technology in education, ranging from social media to cloud services. He supports his assertions with case studies carried out in his own classes. Although the text can, at times, seem more like a personal reflection than a theoretical work, Transforming Education with New Media is a valuable contribution for educators, administrators, policy-makers and even parents who wish to familiarize themselves with various applications of technology in the educational field.
