"Most attempts at school restructuring ignore the critical role that technology will play in reform. Technology and Education Reform presents the latest thinking about how computers, multimedia, and telecommunications will impact diverse aspects of education, including curriculum, assessment, pedagogy, staff development, and policy." —Allan Collins, principal scientist, educational technologies department, Bolt, Beranek, and Newman, Inc.
This book shows how the introduction of new instructional technologies—multimedia systems, networks, video, and microcomputers—can support and expand 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. The authors provide concrete illustrations of how technology can be used to help both students and teachers and explain how policymakers can accommodate the implementation of new technologies.
