Technology Enriched Schools: Nine Case Studies with Reflections.
Collis, Betty, Ed.; Carleer, Gerrit, Ed.
Technology enriched school projects are initiatives in real school settings that try to reduce or remove problems and constraints that hamper the effective use of computers in the schools. These projects are based, not on technology, but on educational need and vision. They examine the atmosphere and functioning of a school that uses technology for change and stimulation. The following case studies from technology enriched schools are presented: (1) "Mount Newton: A Technology-Enriched Middle School" (Keven Elder); (2) "California Model Technology Schools: The Monterey Perspective" (Kam Matray); (3) "Apple Classroom of Tomorrow: West High School" (Robert Howard and Jane Pratt); (4) "Technology-Enriched Schools in the Netherlands" (Jef Moonen and Jos Beishuizen); (5) "An Information Technology School Project in Romania" (Ion Diamandi); (6) "Computerization of an Israeli School System: Project Comptown" (Elad Peled, Zimra Peled, and Gad Alexander); (7) "School of the Future Project at F. M. Black Middle School" (Richard A. Smith and Anthony Sassi); (8) "The Quinte Lighthouse Project" (Robert Holt); and (9) "Netherhall School: Building for the Future on the Experience of the Past" (Alastair J. Wells). Synthesis and reflections are provided by the editors in "Summarizing the Case Studies of Technology-Enriched Schools" and "Reflections on Technology-Enriched Schools." Five appendixes summarize details about the projects. (Contains 33 references.) (SLD)
