Computers, Technology, and the Reading Curriculum.
Using educational technology in reading instruction is one approach, among others, to assist students to increase reading skills. However, there are several reasons why technology is not increasingly used in the school setting, including lack of administrative support; failure to allocate a technology coordinator to help train teachers and coordinate technologies; a lack of funds and personnel to maintain equipment; and continual assessment of content acquisition through traditional methods. This paper discusses the following elements connected with technology use in schools: computer assisted reading instruction; formative and summative reading programs; planning a quality technology curriculum; and inservice education.
