Reviews research on technology's role in personalizing learning, its integration into curriculum-based and school- or district-wide initiatives, and the potential of emerging digital technologies to expand student-centered learning. Outlines implications.
- Observation: Technology is being used to support student-centered learning practices in the areas of assessment, flexible scheduling and pacing, advising, presenting content in alternative ways, project-based learning, and community involvement.
- Observation: While technology can support student-centered learning, it cannot drive reform on its own but must be part of a comprehensive and systematic effort to transform traditional learning environments into student-centered ones.
- Observation: The most prevalent barriers to successful integration of technology are lack of organizational support, teacher attitudes and expertise, and the technology itself.
