Computers in the Schools is supported by an editorial review board of prominent specialists in the school and educational setting. Material presented in this highly acclaimed journal goes beyond the “how we did it” magazine article or handbook by offering a rich source of serious discussion for educators, administrators, computer center directors, and special service providers in the school setting. Articles emphasize the practical aspect of any application, but also tie theory to practice, relate present accomplishments to past efforts and future trends, identify conclusions and their implications, and discuss the theoretical and philosophical basis for the application.
