Abstract:

This paper summarizes and extends an earlier study that reviewed the literature on technology effectiveness, focusing on computers, traditional distance education, two-way interactive telecommunications, multimedia, and the Internet. It also adds some tools for technology evaluation as well as a rationale for using regions to distribute information resources and services electronically. Traditional and emergent definitions of technology from various strands of research are examined, and a paradigm shift from a focus on student achievement defined by standardized tests to one of diverse indicators of learning and educational reform defined by recent research and Goals 2000 is identified. An analytic framework is presented to use the dimensions of technology. Part 1 presents an overview of the framework and its uses, while part 2 discusses the new consensus on learning, policy, and technology capabilities needed to support learning and reform. Part 3 considers trends in technologies and agencies, and part 4 presents a concept of regionality as a unit of operation. Part 5 notes critical steps for research, and part 6 explores policy recommendations. Four appendixes contain eight tables of supplemental data and cost checklists. (Contains 178 references.) (Sld).
