Computers in the High School Classroom (recommended by the KSDE Technology Assistance Team)
http://www.educationworld.com/a_tech/tech/tech211.shtml

From the website:
"High school teachers face enormous pressure to prepare students for state standardized tests, college admissions tests, and AP exams. Do computers "get in the way" of teaching in such an environment or can technology improve achievement without taking time away from the curriculum? Education World's Tech Team offers opinions on the reality and possibilities of "teching" in high school. Included: Nine easy ways to integrate technology in high school and links to technology in action at high schools across America."
