Abstract:This paper provides a comprehensive, enlightening discussion of the potential, current realization, and likely future, of different ways in which computers can be used in education. The topics include individualizing instruction and creating new educational situations for students, general changes in curriculum, changes in the organization of human interaction during learning, changes in the teacher's role, changes in the physical organization of schools and changes in the macro-organization of schooling. It is felt that while information technology has considerable potential it has generated exaggerated expectations in many cases, and it is suggested that one of its major contributions to education lies in the debate and educational examination it is fostering.
