Abstract

The United States (US) and People’s Republic of China (PRC) are large and rapidly changing countries in the world. Within these countries, the field of education is complex, diverse and being challenged to meet all the needs of society. It is ironic that many aspects of American and Chinese education are different and yet the same. The focus of this paper will be upon selected aspects of the broad area of technology and computers in education and school classrooms. General and specific data will be reported when comparing the US and PRC. The data was gathered from a review of literature, interviews, and discussions with Chinese educators, and personal observations in Chinese educational institutions. The observations and interviews took place during a sixteen-day tour of China conducted by the Citizen Ambassador Program in October 1995.
