As the reform movement continues in education, school systems are purchasing computers and related technologies often without the ability to incorporate them into the curriculum. Schools in Kentucky are mandated by the Kentucky Education Reform Act (KERA) of 1990 to incorporate technology to change the way children are educated in the Commonwealth. The learner outcome on the use of technology from the Kentucky Curriculum Framework states: Students use computers and other electronic technology to gather, organize, manipulate, and express information and ideas. One suggestive use of technology by students involves maintaining at least part of the required portfolios for writing and mathematics in a hypermedia environment. Students may incorporate such aspects as text, graphics, sound, video, and photographs within the entries for their portfolios. However, many classroom teachers are uncomfortable in addressing the learner outcome of using electronic technology because of their lack of knowledge and skills in hypermedia.
