Cowan, John E.
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v82 n2 p55-59 Nov-Dec 2008
In this article, the author introduces a series of practical strategies to support the development of an innovative and technology-rich curriculum. The author begins with the importance of understanding what possibilities for innovation exist given the relationship between curriculum, equity issues, and education reform. The author then discusses specific strategies including understanding basic modes of computer use, determining available resources, creating detailed lesson plans, using materials readily available via the Web, and implementing alternative assessments. Accompanying Web-based resources support these strategies. The author concludes with a discussion of how innovative technology curriculum is an area in which education reform's limitations are evident and can be challenged by new ideas and practices.
