Perfect for pre-service and practicing teachers The Computer as an Eduational Tool: Productivity and Problem Solving  guides the reader as they learn:

- to become proficient at applying the computer to solve problems,

- to infuse the computer into the curriculum in order to help students do the same,

- and to integrate technology into their professional, academic, and personal lives in useful and meaningful ways. 

Written by leaders in the field of Educational Technology this text illustrates how technology can be used to support learning  while being transparent as possible--that is, that the use of technology does not call attention to itself but rather is a means to an end.  This philosophy is reflected throughout the book and illustrates how the computer can empower the user to solve problems effectively and efficiently.
