Drawing from the information presented at conference sponsored by the Harvard Graduate School of Education and the Mid--Atlantic Regional Techlogy in Education Consortium, leading educators, researchers, and policymakers, Scaling Up Success translate, theory into practice and provide, a hands--on resource that clearly describes different models for scaling up success. This important resource is filled with illustrative examples of best practices that are grounded in real--life case studies of techlogy--based educational invation from networking a failing school district in New Jersey to using computer visualization to teach scientific inquiry in Chicago. Scaling Up Success show how the lessons learned from techlogy--based educational invation can be applied to other school improvement efforts.
