Use of Instructional Technology in Schools: Lessons to be Learned
1 Jan 2008
Australian Council Educational Research (ACER)
Examines teachers' use of the major instructional technologies over the last century - from the days of silent film, radio and slide shows through to the modern interactive whiteboard and the Web. It explores the reasons why so few teachers have used these technologies and why, even in today's digital world, the most commonly used classroom tools are the pen, paper and teaching board. The Use of Instructional Technology in Schools has been selected for inclusion in the Outstanding Academic Title section of Choice magazine's annual list. The list will be published in Jan 2010 issue of Choice.
