The 43 papers in this collection were presented at the Australian Council for Computers in Education 1993 annual conference. The papers focus on research and scholarship in the use of computers at the elementary, secondary, and higher education levels. The papers address the following aspects of the use of computers in education: (1) theoretical issues such as telecommunications research, global literacy and cognitive modeling; (2) computers and special groups including the disabled; (3) specific technologies, including virtual reality, multimedia, electronic mail, hypermedia, and hypertext; (4) topical applications such as business, law, geology, geophysics, computer programming and computer simulations; (5) software packages and their uses; and (6) the use of computers in training and supporting teachers and the extent of teacher use of computers. The collection also contains a 1992 national survey on the integration of computers into the classroom. Many of the articles are illustrated with graphs, tables, charts, or other graphics, and most papers contain references. (KRN)
