Enter information and communication technologies: compact discs and CD-ROMs, videodiscs, microcomputer-based laboratories, the Internet, virtual reality, local and wide area networks, instructional software, Macs, PCs, laptops, notebooks, educational television, voice mail, e-mail, satellite communication, VCRs, cable TV, interactive radio, etc. The list of “hot” technologies available for education goes on and on. Can these technologies help the education strategist face the challenges above? Educators have been told many times before that technologies would remake their world from filmstrips to radio to television. Is it any different this time?
