The second chapter examines the effect of media on learning, and includes papers on computer instruction and thinking skills, computer development for equity in computer education, and online computer databases in school library media centers for developing skills in information use and critical thinking. Chapter three examines the use of technology to support the disciplines, including science, humanities, reading, and writing instruction. The final chapter focuses on the organizational requirements in schools that choose to use technology, and includes essays on technology introduction, copyright law, and evaluation of a school's technology program.
