The authors present findings from a study that examined teachers' perceptions of their school environment in terms of factors that enhance or prohibit the use of instructional technology. The study also investigated whether the technology implementation environment varied for schools at different locations and different levels. Both quantitative and qualitative data indicated that the most serious problem in K-12 technology implementation was time constraints, followed by technical problems that could not be taken care of in a timely manner.

This article details a case study that examined the integration of technology into a college-level science course over a period of six years. Through interviews and reviews of documents, the researchers identified three enabling factors that facilitated and sustained successful technology integration. The three enabling factors included creation of a sustained leadership team, the launch of a professional learning community, and positive influences of the education system.

Use this product with students who can use a handheld wand or mouthstick to point, but are unable to exert much force. The Magic Wand Keyboard is a miniature computer keyboard, with a built-in mouse, that allows users to fully access any computer. It is designed to be used with little or no hand movement and works with the lightest touch of a wand (either hand-held or mouthstick). Use this product with students who have no strength and little or no hand/arm movement, but who have some fine motor control.

It is well-documented that most students do not have adequate proficiencies in inquiry and metacognition, particularly at deeper levels of comprehension that require explanatory reasoning. The proficiencies are not routinely provided by teachers and normal tutors so it is worthwhile to turn to computer-based learning environments. This article describes some of our recent computer systems that were designed to facilitate explanation-centered learning through strategies of inquiry and metacognition while students learn science and technology content.

The study examined the effectiveness of interactive strategies, including semantic mapping, semantic feature analysis, and semantic/syntactic feature analysis, against definition instruction. Students were grouped into four intervention conditions: semantic mapping, semantic feature analysis, semantic/syntactic feature analysis, or definition instruction. Students received instruction in small groups within each condition for eight 50-minute sessions over seven weeks.
