Several papers examine such innovative computer activities as robotics, interactive video, videodiscs, authoring systems, and artificial intelligence. Additional papers discuss the management of computer resources in K-12 and postsecondary settings, problems caused by the increased use of technology in educational systems, computer graphics, computer programming, networking, computer literacy for faculty and staff, software evaluation, and instructional design.
