Learning Technologies Essential for Education Change.
Council of Chief State School Officers, Washington, DC.
This report presents four papers about the use of technologies in education and a policy statement of the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). The papers were commissioned for a conference designed to stimulate discussion and action among leading technology specialists at all levels of education, private sector representatives, and technology experts from state education agencies. Each of the papers addressed one of the four key issues considered at the conference, i.e., learning alternatives created with technology, student outcomes of learning technologies, integration of technology into teaching, and planning for learning technologies. The papers are: (1) "Learning Alternatives: Technology in Support of Lifelong Education" (David D. Thornburg); (2) "To Lead or To Follow: The Role and Influence of Research on Technology" (Saul Rockman); (3) "Technology Integration and Teachers' Professional Development" (Karen Sheingold); and (4) "Planning for the Technology-Rich Learning Environments of the Future" (Barbara O'Connor). It is noted that the policy statement which concludes the report--"Improving Student Performance through Learning Technologies"--is based in large measure on deliberations about these papers by the 175 participants in the conference, and that it outlines the action required at several levels of government to achieve full integration of technology into education.
