Technology in Education: Looking toward 2020

By Raymond S. Nickerson; Philip P. Zodhiates | Go to book overview

It is not clear, however, that impact and equity are being considered sufficiently in this planning and development. Given what we know about current student needs as well as use and access patterns of the technology, priority should be given to demonstration projects, pilots, and research on "at risk" learners--to explore how higher level cognitive skills and real understanding can be developed among minority and disadvantaged learners and to see how performance gaps might be narrowed.

What will come first, the development of the R&D base for technology in education or concern about equity? If we proceed to explore the potential of the technology without immediate and concurrent concern for equity, we do serious harm by further widening the gap. The disadvantaged have always been forced to play catch up. If we have a tool that can help students overcome previous disadvantage and reach their educational potential, we have a moral obligation to give priority to this purpose.
