Statement of Principles on Technology in the Reform of Mathematics and Science Education.
National Science Foundation, Arlington, VA.; Department of Education, Washington, DC.
The future National Information Infrastructure (NII) promises every business, government agency, hospital, home, library, and school in the United States access anywhere, anytime to voice, data, full-motion video, and multimedia applications. The impact of the NII in learning--for children, older students, and lifelong learners--will be substantial and far reaching. The Department of Education and the National Science Foundation affirm a commitment to foster the research and development of communications and information technologies and their integration into educational environments of all types. The U.S. Department of Education and the National Science Foundation believe that the appropriate use of technology can improve teaching and instruction, expand and enrich learning opportunities, support systemic change, link schools and learning sites to the broader society, and provide equal access to educational opportunities.
