  • "Abstract: This paper reports on the design, development, and application of a Checklist intended to assist educators in recognizing strengths and weaknesses in their technology-based programs at their institutions. The Checklist sampled public and private schools to validate the existence and impact of the Technology Facade. Initial findings indicate that schools have masked the effective use of computers labs and classroom computers behind the auspices of teacher activities, student participation, and parental involvement. The study and suggests possible courses of action to address deficiencies in the use of technology, the construction of the necessary infrastructure, and the design of a viable instructional strategy."

Infrastructure? What's that? Can't you just put the stuff in the classrooms and expect it to work? I mean do the computer _really_ need to connect to the internet?

Sorry... I'm still bitter about the fact that the technology doesn't work as intended.
