Log on to the Future: One School's Success Story.
Hovenic, Ginger
This paper describes Clear View Elementary School's (California) successful experience with integrating technology into the curriculum. Since its inception seven years ago, the school has acquired 250 computers, networked them all on two central file servers, and computerized the library and trained all staff members to be proficient facilitators working with students as they investigate library resources and generate multimedia projects. Ten full days for two years were focused on technology teacher training with two-thirds of the staff development dollars directed to this effort. Since 1993, all students use computers and the upper grade students use the fiber optic connection as part of their daily electronic routine of learning reading, writing, science, and math. The scene in Clear View classrooms is engaging as teachers use the teaching learning centers model: 10 children engaged in lessons using the computers, another 10 receiving small-group instruction from the teacher, and the remaining students working at their desks using hands-on practice lessons. Student projects, elementary-university partnership in professional development activities, and four years of research and development are discussed. (AEF)
