High-Tech Home Schooling.
Somerville, Scott W.
Directed at home school teachers, this paper criticizes public schools for not embracing technology and suggests that much of the current educational software is inadequate. The paper notes that home schooling families are creating a revolution in the educational software marketplace, because home school teachers are looking for the best tools available. The paper suggests that the computer can automate the drudge work such as developing lesson plans, record keeping, and generating drills and spelling lists, but it can go beyond these mundane uses to help children learn French, piano, typing, publishing, and more.
