Technology: Tools for Transforming Teaching and Learning. A Background Paper for the Goals 2000: Satellite Town Meeting, October 19, 1993.
Department of Education, Washington, DC.
New technology can help schools and communities create high-performance learning environments where all students reach high standards. To be effective, technology must be used as an integral part of the school's learning environment, rather than as an isolated laboratory practice or for mindless drill. Six examples are given of the effective use of technology in education. Basic guidelines for technology use begin with checking state resources and community support. The Internet and state networks are cited as valuable sources, and five national networking resources, nine technology organizations, departments of five federal agencies, and eight publications are listed as further sources to be consulted in implementing educational technology.
