Many external factors will influence classrooms as the year 2000 approaches. This paper looks at a vision of what schools may look like in the year 2000, with classrooms where information will be accessed, processed, displayed, demonstrated, and communicated through multimedia. There will be two different types of classroom: the master classroom, a teacher-centered facility which serves as a bridge between the analog and digital world; and the computer classroom/instructional lab, a learning-centered classroom equipped with computers and the latest software and multimedia technology. The paper addresses the advantages and disadvantages of instructional labs, and teacher computer proficiency. It offers a strategic plan for an instructional lab, where new technology complements the instructional models of teachers; explores problems related to the design, costs, and procedures of an instructional lab; and enumerates specific recommendations for lab implementation.
