Literature Review: Educational Technology
Blazer, Christie
Research Services, Miami-Dade County Public Schools
There is a growing consensus among educators and the general public that technology should play a more integral role in students' education. However, the question of whether the introduction of technology into the classroom has a positive impact on teaching and learning is still under intense debate within the educational community. This Literature Review discusses the advantages and disadvantages of integrating technology into the curriculum and provides strategies researchers have concluded contribute to the success of technology programs. Research conducted on technology programs is reviewed. Although these studies have produced inconsistent findings, they do suggest that the types of activities students engage in are more important than the frequency with which they use computers. Finally, the status of educational technology in Miami-Dade County Public Schools and statewide is summarized.
