Abstract

Access to technology is steadily increasing in American schools. The Office of Technology Assessment’s [OTA] (1995) recent publication, Teachers and Technology: Making the Connection, is a comprehensive study of technology in U.S. schools. OTA estimates that about 5.8 million computers are presently in instructional settings in our schools. This works out to about one per every nine students with an increase of 700,000 computers per year. Thirty-five percent of schools have access to some form of a network. Superficially, these numbers are cause for optimism, but OTA has also found that the majority of these computers are being used in traditional ways. As few as 3% of secondary students report using a computer in social studies, with 6-7% for math to a high of 9% for English. One-third of today’s schools have access to the Internet.
