Classroom instruction is undergoing a transformation. The push for this change emerges not only from reform and standards movements, but also from the sheer volume of information that must be relayed to students. Teachers are becoming information brokers as they work to relay needed information on to students and not always from a position of knowledge and authority. This move also makes the classroom more student-centered (Barron & Goldman, 1994). This change can and should be supported by information technologies. The pressure for teachers, particularly new teachers, to be proficient with information and instructional technologies is growing.
