    • 9. CLASSROOM TECHNOLOGY: SOME FOR, OTHERS AGAINST &amp;quot;e-Learning will improve American education in valuable ways and should be universally implemented as soon as possible.“ (NASBE, 2001, p. 4) No academic improvement; no pay off for costly investments. (Mathews, 2000) The analysis of more than 700 studies concluded that students who had access to educational technology showed positive gains in academic achievement. Schacter (1995) Takes funding away from other resources and programs that may be more beneficial to students . (Healy, 1999; Oppenheimer, 1997) Under the right conditions, technology: Accelerates, enriches, and deepens basic skills, motivates and engages students in learning. Lemke and Coughlin (1998) Technology sits idle and is underused. (Cuban, 2001) Under the right conditions—where teachers are personally comfortable and at least moderately skilled…computers are clearly becoming a valuable and well-functioning instructional tool. (Becker, 2000, ¶4) Over-reliance on technology can rob from children of opportunities to express creativity, build human relationships, and experience hands-on learning. (Alliance for Childhood, 2000)
