On the Computer Metaphor for Learning.
Leong, Che Kan
Canadian Journal of Special Education, v4 n1 p3-7 1988
Computer technology is discussed as a root metaphor for learning at two levels. At the practical level, computers should serve as tutors, tutees, and tools to help develop higher order cognitive skills. At the philosophical level, the man-machine duality relates to consciousness, computer fallibility, and continuous versus discrete thought. (Author/DB)
