“New communication technologies are resulting in basic changes in the way people learn and in the student-teacher relationship. The introduction of multimedia to the classroom can lead to higher-level thinking as the computer takes care of low-level routine tasks, supports inquiry learning by making available a wide range of resources, accommodates different learning styles, and changes the role of the teacher from knowledge source to learning facilitator.”
