Telecommunications and information technologies can advance school reform to ensure the achievement of high standards if the curriculum guides the investment in technology. Technology must be planned for, and it must be implemented slowly, as an essential part of the curriculum and not as an add-on result of available funds. Systemic reform linked to efforts to build the National Information Infrastructure can have enormous impact on teaching and learning, making access to information easier and active participation by students easier and more appealing. Use of technology to help reduce educational inequity can be achieved if technology is accessible and affordable for all. In addition, students and teachers must have the support they need to be able to reap the benefits of technology. Changes throughout the school organization, particularly in the area of professional development, are necessary to integrate technology into instruction. Funding the necessary infrastructure is a complicated problem, but public-private ventures and regional consortia present two possible avenues of financial support. Ten appendixes provide supplemental information, including legislative background. (Contains 64 references.) (SLD)
