Technology and Education Reform shows how the introduction of such new instructional technologies as multimedia systems, networks, video, and microcomputers can support and further the efforts of school reform. Based on research by the National Study on Technology and Education Reform—a project of SRI International sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education—along with additional research by the authors, this book provides a framework for linking the instructional uses of new technologies to the teaching and learning goals of school reform, showing how the new roles of students and teachers as envisioned by the education reform movement can be supported by technology.The book provides concrete illustrations of how technology can be used to help both students and teachers to accomplish things they could not do otherwise. Through illustrative examples of successful programs from around the country, the authors reveal the specific kinds of technologies that hold the most promise for increasing student learning. They show how technology can improve teacher training. And they explain what policy makers can do to accommodate the implementation of new technologies.
