To what extent can computers be used to help teachers create a constructivist learning environment in the science classroom? In this study, data from 23 high school physics classes and 13 teachers were examined to determine the extent to which computers can alter pedagogy and student achievement. Three groups of teachers were examined: Experienced users of the new pedagogy and materials, beginning users of the new pedagogy and materials, and a group of comparison teachers who used traditional instructional methods. Results suggest computers can significantly alter both teaching methods and student achievement; however, there are costs and benefits to the reform. Implications for using computers in the classroom are discussed.
