SUNY Press, 1991 - Education - 157 pages
0 Reviews
Two education scholars contend that the introduction of computers into classrooms has made no significant change, and won't until the flaws in the underlying theories and approaches to education are corrected. Meanwhile, they say, the computers either gather dust in the corner, or reinforce the isolation and competition of students, and continue to reward those who already do well rather than help those who do not.
