The Role of Technology and Computer-Based Instruction in a Disadvantaged Alternative School's Culture of Learning
Watson, Sunnie Lee; Watson, William R.
Computers in the Schools, v28 n1 p39-55 2011
New approaches to instruction are increasingly being advocated to meet the needs of diverse learners. Educational researchers have identified the further development and application of computer-based instruction technologies for managing differentiated learning for all students as essential for shifting to a learner-centered paradigm of instruction in future schools. This study examines how a disadvantaged alternative high school implemented technology use and computer-based instruction to support a learner-centered culture of learning. Based on findings, the study looks for implications and future directions to better support learner-centered instruction for diverse students.
