A Voice from the Past Calls for Classroom Technology
Kilfoye, Charles
Phi Delta Kappan, v94 n7 p53-56 Apr 2013
Passage of the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) in 2000 established requirements for public libraries and schools to adopt Internet filters on their computers in order to receive federal funding. That has firmly, if unintentionally, established the World Wide Web as a no man's land in public education, where few are allowed to tread without pre-established permission from the school's information technology department. As a result, one of the most valuable tools available for establishing the necessary skills for critical thinking, self-discovery, collaboration, and presentation remains beyond the reach of students and teachers during school hours.
