Integrating Technology into the Curriculum. A Leadership Guide.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus.
Taking a broad view of technology, this publication discusses its potential for education and examines the implications of a technology-oriented curriculum. Chapter 1 identifies the increasing importance of technology in the workplace, home, and forms of communication. Evidence is cited that suggests that emerging technologies can be expected to change the means of accomplishing tasks, institutions, and individual roles therein. Chapter 2 addresses the educational potential of technology from the perspectives of content, outcomes, and methodologies. The importance of integrating technology within the curriculum is emphasized, and examples for doing so are offered through a citizenship approach. The need for planned organizational change is discussed in chapter 3, which notes that consideration for the changing roles of individuals and establishing a climate for innovation are important. Finally, technology is examined in terms of its future and its potential to generate change, and it is concluded that the integration of technology into schools on a large scale raises issues concerning personnel, resources, management, programs, and administration. A glossary of important terms is provided. (39 references) (DB)
