The early eighties saw a period of rapid change in computing and teachers lost control of how they used computers in their classrooms. Software companies produced computer tools that looked so good that teachers forgot about writing their own classroom materials and happily purchased software--that offered much more than teachers needed--from companies that had little knowledge of pedagogy. This article encourages teachers to budget time and money for a better balance between teaching how to use powerful computer tools and writing their own materials to meet the needs of their classes.
