"Viewpoints" is a multimedia package containing two audio CDs and a short, informative booklet. This volume of "Viewpoints" focuses on how technology can help improve student learning. The audio CDs provide the voices, or viewpoints, of various leaders from the education field who work closely with technology issues. Their voices represent perspectives on the uses of technology in education and provide an overview of the current issues around education technology. This booklet offers background information explaining the issues surrounding technology in education. It presents some findings of recent research on the effectiveness of technology in improving student learning and teacher effectiveness and outlines current efforts designed to help us realize technology's potential. The booklet also provides a list of technology resources--including tools, publications, and research studies--to assist educators with the systemic integration of education technology for promoting student achievement. The essay "Using Technology in Education" serves as a companion to the CDs. It offers a brief overview of technology use in education, discusses the growing body of research dedicated to how technology can promote student learning and teacher effectiveness, and outlines current efforts designed to help us realize technology's potential. It also suggests resources that can assist educators as they work to use technology effectively for the benefit of all students. It may be helpful to read the booklet as an introduction to the topic before listening to the interviews presented on the CDs. [The audio CD portion of this package is not available from ERIC.]
