Banister, Savilla
This paper presents an overview of expectations educators have for computer use in the classroom, followed by a discussion of how technology and curriculum agendas relate (or do not relate) in schools. The paper examines the following questions: Does the introduction of computers into American classrooms affect the curriculum in these settings? What are the dynamics to be considered when technologies and curricula are elements of an educational environment? Do these two phenomena merely coexist within schools, or do they complement or destroy the other? Three possible models which explore the relationships of technology and curriculum are proposed and discussed in detail: (1) Technology as the Curriculum; (2) Curriculum as Technology; and (3) Alternative Vision. Contains 19 references. (AEF)
