The use of computers in the classroom is still a very new development in education. In fact, computers themselves have been around only for about thirty-five years. The incredible growth in the technology of computers is almost impossible to fathom. Modern computers are not only a faster and "smarter," they are smaller and cheaper. Shane (1982) pointed out that if a Rolls Royce had become as cost effective as computers and had its price reduced accordingly, it would cost only three dollars.
