The book addresses a number of questions of great importance to anyone teaching in a networked classroom, such as how much technology teachers need to know and teach, how to deal with computer glitches when they happen, and how to successfully employ technology to accomplish the curricular goals.

The book abounds in practical advice for teachers, suggesting teaching strategies that work well in a computer classroom as well as ways of finding a "comfort zone" in such a classroom. In addition to suggesting modifications that teachers might want to make in their lesson plans and the activities usually present in a traditional classroom, chapters four through nine also contain sidebars with specific teaching strategies relevant to the discussion in each chapter. The book also offers sample lesson plans and activities and discusses the different ways in which they can be incorporated into the classroom.
