Integrating Technology into the Curriculum. First Year Evaluation

American Educational Research Association Annual Meeting,


A program for infusing technology into the high school curriculum was initiated with grant funds at the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf in 1993-94. The first year of the program focused on establishing an Interactive Technology Lab, assessing teachers' readiness for the integration of technology into the curriculum and the effects of this technology on teacher and student attitudes and student achievement. Attitudinal and achievement changes were assessed in two sophomore biology classes and one senior chemistry class. Interactive video and electronic networking were the technological areas highlighted as particularly useful for deaf students, whose English language skills may be weak. Evaluation results were generally positive in terms of measured student and teacher outcomes and extremely positive in terms of the development of and capacity for delivering the technology-infused curriculum. The most important result may have been student enthusiasm for the technology. Eight tables present evaluation findings. (Contains 13 references.) (SLD)
