`I would like to see this book become required reading for every teacher and administrator. Its simplified descriptions make it easily understood by non-technical people. I will make sure that all of my class read it' - Shirley Campbell, Director, Computer and Curriculum Inquiry Center, University of Pittsburgh, PA

Windows on the Future is not a technical test per se, but one designed to help the teacher cope with the changes technology creates. It contains a number of ideas and strategies that will help the teacher more quickly accept and adopt new technology, so the they are able to adequately prepare students for success in the technology-rich world the students face.
