Abstract

New technology is one of the most frequently named components in, or rationales for, school reform. Many of the hopes expressed today for educational technology sound reasonable and desirable, but history suggests that integrating technology into classroom practice is a very complex process, profoundly affected by trends in educational policy, curriculum theory, and pedagogy. This paper points out some of the common themes that run through the history of educational technology, with particular attention given to overlaps with trends in educational policy and theories about curriculum, teaching, and learning.
