Twenty-two speakers attending the University of Oregon College of Education's Third Annual Summer Conference, entitled "The Computer: Extension of the Human Mind," in July, 1982, submitted their papers for publication in this volume of conference proceedings. Papers of a wide-ranging speculative or theoretical nature were presented in general interest sessions. Authors of these papers and their topics were Moursund on computer literacy, Bork on educational change related to computers, Zamora on off-campus computer education, Billings on learner control, Kling on the relationships between educational or social philosophy and approaches to computer instruction, Olds on the hidden curriculum of computer-assisted instruction, and Kinne on the development of the microcomputer and its market. Special interest sessions were addressed by speakers discussing specific applications of computers in the following areas: special education, educational program evaluation, elementary and secondary mathematics and science instruction, literature searches, computer programming instruction, career information systems, and home computer-based learning systems. Other special interest sessions dealt with professional associations for computer educators, resource materials regarding development of small college computer science programs, and applications of computer-assisted instruction.
