Abstract

When preparing for a race, the coach will advise, “Do not look back at your competition; look forward to your goal.” Educators integrating technology into instruction often take this same view; they look ahead to win the race in preparing students to be effective in the use of technology in learning and in life. Our educators need to be conscious of their role in a world of people who have access to technology as an educational and life resource and those who do not. And, they need to take action to assure that children and citizens in all of the world’s societies can make effective use of appropriate technology to enhance learning and living. While the world does not have a history of assuring equal educational opportunity for all, the disparity is, and will become all the greater, as technological literacy becomes a requirement for success in educational and life achievement.
