Weston, Ph.D., co-author with Alan Bain of “The Learning Edge” (Teachers College Press) takes up those questions and makes a case that integrated use of technology at all levels of the educational system can greatly expand collaborative learning opportunities by giving all educational stakeholders powerful problem solving tools and solutions.
