Reshaping Curricular Culture.
Curricular goals that traditionally focused on the delivery of the teaching rather than the outcomes of the learning are in a state of major transition. Implementation of academic standards requires the application of content and not merely its delivery. As a result, colleges of education must prepare anew genre of teacher leaders equipped to align students' classroom experiences with the changing realities of performance learning in an information era. This paper focuses on preparing teachers who can link electronic information resources with engaging learning experiences. The work is grounded in the beliefs of cognitive theory and applied practice. It presents educational media as a support structure in the curricular architecture of teaching and learning rather than as an ancillary element. It specifically focuses on preparing educators to motivate their students through comparative, investigative, and collaborative problem solving. (Contains 18 references.) (Author)
