Quote: “There are never enough computer stations for the learners; the available software is seldom what I would have chosen and often different from what was promised; there are always turned-off learners and at least on computerphobe in every group.” P. 458.
Comment: No matter what the technology, something always goes wrong. It’s the story of my teaching life. RayS.
