Since the 1970s, computers have been inserted into schools with much fanfare and great expense. Almost all of the attention to computers has revolved around the question of how to put them to use as tools for education. subsequent assessments have focused primarily on their effectiveness as an aid to learning and how well students are prepared for their use beyond school. The present book is a thoughtful work which provides rich knowledge both about computers and about the process of computer-aided learning. It shows how computers can enhance student motivation and engagement. Readers will learn from the book about the variety of computer software available for teaching. The application of Internet in education and the importance e of safe use of it are also analysed. Teachers, students, educators and policy makers will be the primary audience of this book.
