Technology has been viewed as a lodestone for improving student academic performance and for increasing the flexibility of public schools. This paper provides a comprehensive review of the literature that addresses the effect of technology on the culture of teaching and learning. This synthesis examines the historical trends of technology, explores policy changes that have influenced technology's role in K-12 curriculum, how these changes have resulted in a new definition of literacy that now includes technological literacy and in new social and cultural dynamics. Third, this paper examines the gaps between the vision for technology and its practical realities, concluding with a call for future educational research in technology.
