Open Access Graduate Research Paper


In his article concerning the microcomputer, Gordon (1984) stated that one myth about computers is that they are a "shortlived" fad. Many people feel that the computer craze will soon die out leaving behind wasted equipment and time, but, in fact, l the computer seems to be here to stay and educators must keep up with the times and learn about them before they fall too far behind in the field. Along the same lines, Hunter (1983) expresses a more positive view held by many. She states, "parents, teachers, and children believe by learning about computers and learning how to use them, they will be better prepared to survive and enjoy economic well-being in a changing world" (p. 5). So it seems that society itself dictates that youth become involved with the computer and in its uses.
