Systemic Change and Educational Technology

Instructional technologies are critically important for creating systemic change in school districts. Charles Reigeluth and others have written extensively about these technologies and how they can be used to transform education. Instructional technologies applied in a piecemeal fashion cannot create the kind of changes needed to transform school systems to comply with the requirements of our knowledge age society. These technologies should be applied within the context of principles of systemic change if education systems are to be transformed. This entry first discusses school districts as whole systems and the differences between piecemeal change and systemic change in school districts. It then discusses in detail why piecemeal changes fail to improve school districts and outlines the principles of systemic change.
