Technology as a Vehicle for Education Reform

David E. Tanner and David Andrews

Abstract—Technology as a Vehicle for Education Reform. School reform in the United States has been a central theme for 30 years and for the last decade has included national government involvement in what was traditionally a states’ responsibility. Central to the movement has been an effort to improve science and mathematics performance by secondary school students who are consistently wanting in international comparisons. National Science Foundation efforts such as the Robert Noyce program encourage compensating for a shortage of science and math teachers with electronic materials available from on-line sources. Initial data indicate that teachers use the resources and feel better prepared to teach as a result.

Index Terms—Secondary science teaching, on-line teaching resources.
