This is a NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA report procured by the Pentagon and made available for public release. It has been reproduced in the best form available to the Pentagon. It is not spiral-bound, but rather assembled with Velobinding in a soft, white linen cover. The Storming Media report number is A219643. The abstract provided by the Pentagon follows: Governments and local school systems continue to invest millions of dollars into educational technology. Most of these investments have not produced as promised and some are complete failures. The purpose of this thesis is to determine the state-of-the-art for the implementation of educational technology into the classroom and create a set of common lessons learned from these experiences. Also, an experiment using Microsoft Powerpoint is used to determine students specific likes and dislikes on the infusion of technology into their classroom. Two sections of the same class are used for the experiment. One is a control group that has the lecture material presented to them in the traditional manner (overhead transparencies and blackboard) and the second receive the same material plus additional information made possible by the abilities of Powerpoint. The students are then given a three part survey to express their feelings on the use of presentation technology. Overwhelmingly. the students prefer the use of presentation technology. They feel that the use of technology increases their ability to learn and adds flexibility for the professor and students. Also, the decreased time the instructor must spend writing notes on the blackboard is beneficial.
