Implications of the Shift from Isolated, Expensive Technology to Connected, Inexpensive, Diverse and Ubiquitous Technologies.
Kaput, J. J.
We examine the long term history of the development of fundamental representational infrastructures such as writing and algebra, and how they were physically implemented via such devices as the printing press and computers, in order to (1) gain insight into what is occurring today both in terms of representational infrastructure change and in physical embodiments, (2) obtain clues regarding what to do next, and (3) determine the kinds of questions that research will need to answer in the coming decade if we are to make optimal use of new diverse and connected classroom technologies.
