Abstract

Carroll (2000) suggested ways in which technology would create new roles for teachers and students in the classroom. He stated that technology-enhanced units should be more student-centered and collaborative, that the learning should be more active and more problem-based. This study compares lessons designed by teachers using either INTEL Teach to the Future model or the WebQuest model. A correlation study was done to compare the role of teachers and students supported by these lessons and the NETS-S standards they meet. The results indicate both INTEL lessons and WebQuest lessons can create new roles for teachers and students when they meet NETS-S relating to research and problem solving but do not always support new roles when meeting standards relating to technology as a productivity tool.
