The computers introduced into schools, colleges and universities from the 1980s and 1990s were very different from the computers that we see in those institutions today. One could ask – is this important? In this regard, certainly there are points worth considering. If computers are not new to education, and have been in educational institutions for more than 30 or 40 years, are educators now familiar with the functionality and application of computers for teaching and learning? If computers offer different functionalities and applications from those 30 or 40 years ago, does this mean that educators have kept pace with the changes? If computers are now more widely accessible than they were 30 or 40 years ago, does increased accessibility mean that there is greater familiarity with the potential that computers now offer in education?
