Blaylock, T. Hendon; Newman, Joseph W.
Education, v125 n3 p373 Spr 2005
Computer-based instruction is becoming more prevalent in secondary education in the United States. Using computers to deliver instruction can help to correct inequities in educational opportunities that exist due to race/ethnicity, budget constraints, geographical location, income, school size, and substandard teaching. Some knowledgeable experts predict most secondary students will receive all or part of their education from Internet-connected computers. This article specifically examines the impact of computer-based instruction in Illinois and Florida. Questions dealing with equitable access, course quality and rigor, learning and teaching experiences, and student success are addressed. Computer-based instruction in secondary education has the potential to solve some of the problems facing our schools.
