Learning Technology: Enhancing Learning in New Designs for the Comprehensive High School.
Damyanovich, Mike; And Others
Technology, directed to each of the parts that collectively give shape and direction to the school, should provide the critical mass necessary to realize the specifications for the New Designs for the Comprehensive High School project. Learners should have access to personal productivity tools that increase effectiveness and efficiency in the workplace, home, and community as well as access to multimedia tools for information retrieval, manipulation, knowledge production, and presentation. The learning community should have: (1) an installed network providing access to almost any station on the network and to resources beyond the school through various means: telecommunications; network modems, printers, and other input/output devices; (2) telephone lines installed in every classroom, media center, and productivity center; and (3) electronic and/or voice mail accessible by students, staff, and community. Technology can catalyze the learning process by providing an interactive, distributed, open, instructional management system designed for monitoring alignment of curriculum, instruction and assessment, and student tracking. A management system helps students, parents, and teachers work together to develop and manage personalized learning plans. Technology can provide students flexibility in learning time, opportunity, and plans through an installed satellite, two-way interactive television, or computer-based instructional learning system. Access to and use of technology should be a common goal and shared responsibility of learning partners. (YLB)
