Summary

Children with learning or adjustment problems can profit from carefully managed application of educational technology. Success in such a venture depends on the quality of the microcomputer, the software, and the operator of the system. A model analyzing this triadic interaction notes variables associated with the computer (hardware resources, software selection, micro-management), personality (teacher characteristics, group and social factors, motivation), and cognition (intellectual abilities, developmental level, and practice). Problems with micro-management and with inappropriate software are noted, and it is suggested that at present the microcomputer is an expensive item that is not the most cost-effective microelectronic aid.
