Abstract

The multicultural aspects of current issues in educational technology and different levels of instructional design for better outcomes of technology-based education are discussed. The main barrier that schools face in using technology effectively in the classroom is cultural lag, and the second barrier is the ineffective use of technology in the classroom. Another issue that becomes important for the teachers is that the teachers are usually not given the time to understand the capabilities of implementing the technology into their curricula. Chisholm addressed the use of computers in the classroom and suggested that effective use of computers in the classroom was enhanced by teachers who had students engaged in simultaneous activities. Duran stated that education technology can deepen the student's awareness of the multiple ways in which subject-matter information can be addressed, organized and presented.
