Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This text provides a variety of practical and theoretical approaches to computer classroom design. Pedagogical, ethical, and political issues are discussed as well as nuts-and-bolts construction, adapting teaching styles to a CAI environment, use of specific hardware and software, and speculation regarding future electronic learning environments.

"My first thought went like this: 'Oh no, not another book about computer labs.' But after I read the book, I realized the great diversity possible in classroom design. I started to get really interested. And this surprised me because I have written on the topic, and I thought I had it all figured out. I learned a lot from reading this book." -- Thomas T. Barker, Texas Tech University

"There are still many instructors and administrators who are just beginning to establish computer writing facilities. They're not sure where to begin. This book could help." -- Evelyn Posey, The University of Texas, El Paso
