Hawaii's Electronic School Project: A Cure or Another Creation of the God of Technology?
Wiley-Patton, Sonja
This paper presents a qualitative description of one of Hawaii's educational reform projects: the Electronic School Pilot Project, an innovative method of integrating advanced telecommunications technology into the classroom as a proposed cure for statewide inadequate or low performance on national standard exams (e.g., ACT and SAT). The telecommunication evolution and the technology processes involved with the project are explored. This presentation triangulates education, technology, and policy to introduce an integrated view of the pilot program. A brief literature review conveys support and opposition related to the subject of telecommunications technology in the classroom. Conclusions and recommendations reveal the structure, definition, technological procedures, and concerns of the Electronic School Pilot Project. (Contains 20 endnotes and approximately 15 references.) (AEF)
