The Beginning of a Story: Computers and the Organization of Learning in Classrooms


by Jan Hawkins & Karen Sheingold - 1986

The purposes of this chapter are to describe what we have found out about computers and classroom learning and to discuss some of the longer-term possibilities that may follow from either what we have seen or from projected developments in the technology. We have observed four aspects of the organization of learning that appear to be affected by the incorporation of computers in classrooms--the curriculum, learning interactions, classroom management, and the assessment and monitoring of student progress. It is to these elements of classroom life that we will address our discussion of current research and our thoughts about the future. So we will be telling the beginning of a story as we have observed it and anticipating some possible future chapters.
