Money Isn't Everything: Prospects and Problems in Achieving the Aims of the Computer Revolution.
Marshall, Gail
Researchers claim that the computer revolution has fizzled in many school districts; less than half of America's teachers use computers. This paper asserts that funding or its lack is not enough to make or break technology implementation. Factors like resistance to change and disagreement over evaluation methods that hinder the acceptance of pre-computer innovations like the New Math are still at work in the present. In order for schools to take full advantage of emerging technology they must be savvy in managing change, develop a shared education vision, and monitor spending carefully. (BEW)
