This overview discusses recent technological developments of importance to education. Specific products of recent developments in microelectronics are discussed, including educational television, video recordings, digital devices, text systems, and computers for instructional use. The effectiveness of high technology in improving instruction is viewed as inseparable from the human failings that continue to hamper efficient realization of educational objectives. The further application of technology to education is seen in a context of humanism applied to the projected needs of a society undergoing rapid socioeconomic change. A few specific implications for second language instruction are discussed. (JB)
