Despite a long history of computers in schools, many educators continue to struggle with the problem of creating effective technology-rich learning environments. In this exploratory research, documents collected as several K-12 schools designed systems to support technology-rich education are analyzed. School and technology leaders in each school followed educational design research, an iterative method of planning, to implement interventions intended to increase factors associated with technology acceptance. An emerging research agenda is described.
