This paper looks at the idea of technology in the classroom as a learning technique that promotes cooperative learning and interaction between the students as they work on computers with one another. With the viewpoint that this interaction and the cooperative learning techniques that students learn can help them to succeed in school and in later life as they move into college or into their careers, the author reviews literature on whether cooperative instruction is better for all types of courses and learning or whether it only works well on some occasions are discussed. The paper also points out that when teachers are reluctant to use technology or when they do not have the resources that they need, the use of technology can become a problem for teachers and students alike. Thus, the paper addresses reasons why technology might not be used as much as it should be at the local high school. This paper includes a questionnaire in the appendix. Research methodology is explained and recommendations on analysis of the included survey are also provided.
