Information-based technologies have quickly become an integral part of American society (Cerf, 1996). Rapid technological changes in American society are affecting changes not only in the way we do business, but in the way we educate our students, and in the expectations of educational outcomes (U.S. Department of Education, 1991). Although we cannot precisely predict what form education will take in the coming years, we can begin to identify skills that will be needed in order to function in technology-mediated environments. Through a synthesis of knowledge of how people learn and how people use technology, educational researchers may be able to make recommendations regarding the relationship between technology and the learner that could result in the design of more effective and efficient learning environments.
