School Violence and Technology.
Updating School Board Policies, v25 n5 p1-3 1994
This article examines the role of technology in an attempt to curb school violence. Despite an increasing national focus on school violence and schools' growing desire for hardware to deal with the problem, the role of technology in making schools safer remains ill-defined and undecided. However, some educators caution that the use of technology should be part of an overall strategy to reduce violence. Attention to the human dimensions of a school's environment may be equally important. School boards can: (1) address challenges in the school environment, such as unresponsive and inappropriate curricula, ineffective teaching strategies, unrealistic educational standards, low teacher expectations for student performance, inadequate instructional and support services, a negative school climate, and teacher insensitivity to student diversity; and (2) forge community and family relations.
