As we enter the 21st century, education that is multicultural becomes increasingly critical in the development of democratic citizens for our global society. With the development of digital and broadband technologies, we (schools, teachers, families) are now able to engage students in ways of knowing about the world, and themselves in it, that simply were not possible before. What once was expensive and time consuming is now fluid and within the reach of all classrooms. This book addresses issues and concerns related to the intersection of computer technologies and the Internet within the framework of multicultural education.

The authors bring diverse perspectives relating issues of multiculturalism and the use of technology in education. Authors were invited to speak in their own voice bringing their own experience and richness to the text. The reader of this text will come face to face with the complexity of an education that is multicultural.
