Using Computers in Schools

Education systems around the world face formidable challenges that are taxing conventional strategies. Fresh approaches are needed to address persistent problems of the past and provide students with an education appropriate to the needs of a modern, information-based global economy. Now, after more than two decades of unfulfilled promises to revolutionize education, computer and communication technologies are finally able to offer opportunities to significantly improve teaching and learning.

There is an urgent need to provide education that goes beyond teaching basic literacy and numeracy skills. Education must help to build higher-order cognitive abilities, strengthen processes of inquiry, enable collaborative problem solving, and prepare people to compete in global markets and become productive members of democracies.

No single solution exists to address these immense challenges. New approaches and strategies for change are needed, and computers, mediated communication, and related educational technologies are an important part of these approaches and strategies.

When used effectively and integrated into schools, computers can improve teaching and learning, strengthen teacher professional development, support broad educational reform, enhance school-community partnerships, and improve school management. This paper helps to explain the potential uses of computers in schools and help professionals decide if such projects would help achieve strategic educational objectives and address critical learning needs.
