Book Description

First Published in 1983. The papers in this volume were originally presented at a conference on The Future of Electronic Learning held at Teachers College, Columbia University in April of 1982, sponsored by the Electronic Learning Laboratory. Each paper has been revised for a reading audience rather than a listening audience, but the original questions from the audience and their answers have been retained as they give a sense of the conference and provide interesting information. The sub-title of the conference was Implications for Psychology and Education. The reader will find that the papers address both the new kinds of learning that will develop as a result of learning from electronic technology, as well as the new forms of teaching that will be needed. The purpose of the conference was to bring together an unusual group of experts who could address these questions for the future with special knowledge of the technology combined with a concern for education.
