Although multimedia computers are becoming widespread in the consumer market, little research has been undertaken into the computer as a shapeable medium based on an understanding of algorithms. Most educational research was focused on the computer simply as a tool or a resource for archiving data. The paper looks at a new interdisciplinary approach introduce the computer as a medium in general education. It discusses the impact of hybrid learning environments to support the development of a broader concept of computational literacy by linking the physical world to digital spaces. Different models for scenarios are introduced. They are linked to sensor technologies and iconic programming tools, as well as software to create three-dimensional worlds and virtual identities (avatars), delivered and experienced through the Internet. The flexible concept of Mixed Reality allows for embedding the computer in a multidimensional education which addresses different human senses.
