A truism of school reform has long been the promise that technology, properly applied, will fuel dramatic improvement in teaching and learning.

Mee, Molly – National Middle School Association (NJ3), 2007
Many middle school students claim that their voices are ignored in the classroom, where the attitude is too often that the teacher holds the one right answer.

This brief forum article reviews texts on lectures and reveals that not much has changed on this topic.
