Title: CTR: TECHNOLOGY FIX: THE PROMISE AND REALITY OF COMPUTERS IN OUR SCHOOLS, THE
Description:
By 2001, educational materials developer William D. Pflaum began to suspect that technology was not the all-purpose solution it had seemed. Deciding to see how computers were really being used in the U.S. classrooms, he embarked on a yearlong road trip to a cross-section of schools throughout the nation. In this book he recounts his journey. Although he did find technology application to admire, too often he found broken promises: millions spent for little measurable gain, problems instead of solutions, instead of a fix. Pflaum provides insight into the key roles that computers play in the classroom and clarifies what we must do to ensure that the promise of technology is fulfilled and the students truly benefit. 209 pages
