Integrating Technology in Secondary Schools.
Curriculum Report, v23 n4 Mar 1994
Using technology as part of learning paradigms is rapidly integrating into many schools' curriculums. To successfully integrate technology into a school's curriculum, the following groups must become actively involved in the integration process: (1) local school boards; (2) administrators; and (3) teachers. Two schools in San Antonio, Texas are integrating technology into their curriculums by using two different formats. Tom C. Clark High School is a Professional Development School site within the San Antonio Center for Educational Development and Excellence (CEDE). Clark High School's technology integration program is based on two principles: cross training and site-based decision making. To better integrate technology into their school, Clark High brought many different subject teachers together to design a multimedia presentation. Sam Houston High School as a partner in a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement is designing and testing a series of fundamental skills tutorials. The cooperative project is an effort to develop, research, and transfer intelligent tutoring systems technology to public schools and industry under federal transfer guidelines. The overall aims of the project are to generate educational materials to achieve current educational goals on the national level and support the real-life implementation of technology in the classroom.
