This book presents a rationale and an inquiry-based model for integrating computer technology into the classroom curriculum by using it as a tool for problem solving rather than as an instructional delivery device. The 10-step NTeQ model remains the same as in previous editions, but with refined concepts and increased emphasis on the role of teacher as designer.

Overview

This book presents a rationale and an inquiry-based model for integrating computer technology into the classroom curriculum by using it as a tool for problem solving rather than as an instructional delivery device. The 10-step NTeQ model remains the same as in previous editions, but with refined concepts and increased emphasis on the role of teacher as designer. The book's approach stresses the student's use of the computer to solve real-world problems while learning.
