Noting a low rate of utilization of computers by content area teachers in their classrooms, this paper argues that classroom teachers are generally unaware of how computers can enhance teaching and learning and of how computers can be integrated into the curriculum. In response, an introduction to both productivity and instructional software is provided, and specific examples of instructional software (drill and practice, tutorial, simulation, educational games, and problem solving software) are described. A nine-step model is also provided to assist teachers who wish to integrate computers into their teaching. Finally, the paper describes five basic computer configurations that can be used in the classroom, noting that the teacher's role changes with each configuration. It is concluded that the training of teachers for technology use must begin now so that they are prepared to integrate computers and other information technologies into their teaching in order to meet the needs of the changing society.
