This thesis addresses the topic of technology use in the theatre arts classroom. The popularity and prevalent use of the personal computer, CD-ROM and multi-media in classrooms implies a promise that technology is a valuable and viable educational tool. However, assessing the usefulness of a particular piece of technology, be it the computer in general or a piece of software, is difficult as each teacher and each classroom has a different set of needs and requirements.
In an effort to create a means of evaluating the usefulness of technology in the theatre arts classroom, this thesis focuses on the creation of an assessment document, developed from existing educational mandates for theatre arts educators--specifically, National Association for Schools of Theatre and National Standards for Arts Education. The evaluation of technology against the assessment document brings focus to the pertinence of technology as an aid for enhancing theatre arts education and curriculum development.
