Uses for technology in the classroom and resource centers may differ in significant ways from administrative purposes. Although within a classroom, computer technology can be used for multi-level purposes. Schools are making a distinction between the teacher’s computer workstation and a student’s computer workstation.
Technology planning committee members should examine the curriculum goals and objectives in order to identify instructional opportunities to infusion technology into the teaching and learning process. If the curricular goals and objectives incorporate national Goals 2000, technology may be used to facilitate systemic educational reform.
Some of the best examples of how technology is used to enhance teaching and learning can be found in the illustrative cases within Pathways. Some of the demonstration sites also provide insights into using technology for instructional purposes.
