Abstract

For those educators and computer science professionals who have both a strong background in multimedia and applications in learner-centered instruction and media, the employment forecast is strong. The growth of online instruction across the many parts of the world continues. The advent of accessing learning opportunities that “show” more than “tell” is not likely to be reversible. But, the exponentially increasing conceptual and practical knowledge required for professional educators to be both specialists in selecting, managing, and interfacing computer software programs, while also being superb in the applications of those resources for learner-controlled instruction and entertainment is no less than daunting. Yes, everyone probably does not need to know how a technology works to use it. But, to understand wholes and parts is essential for people who seek to be visionaries for social change.
