Abstract

Clearly, there are many issues that need consideration when one seeks to analyse the role of computers in education. For example, how might computers best support the teaching/learning process given what we know about learning and teaching; what effects will computer technology have on school curriculum; how will presently employed teachers come to grips with this technological change; is all this talk about computer technology and the impact on education relevant anyway - is it more than a fad? In this paper I want to discusss the curriculum implications of computer technology for the infants and primary school. In particular I will attempt to give answers to each of the following questions. what impact are computers having on the school curriculum now; how is the curriculum likely to change in the near future; and what do these changes mean for undergraduate teacher education programs?
