Technology Teaching and Learning: Research, Experience, & Global Lessons Learned

IDD | EDC | Publication

Globally, technology has been regarded as an instrument of, indeed a shortcut to, school reform. This monograph examines educational technology initiatives in Lebanon, Jordan, the United Kingdom, and the United States over the past decade and draws lessons that can help nations moving forward with their own national educational technology initiatives. It demonstrates that technology has not failed educational systems. Rather, these systems have made successful implementation of innovations like technology impossible by failing to develop the terrain, the conditions, the initiatives, the supports—the reforms—necessary to ensure that innovations take root and flourish.
