Statement of
Edward Palmer and Peter Devitt
Abstract: Computing technology and the place of computers in our society has changed dramatically over the last 20 years. How have computer aided learning packages evolved in this time and what is likely to eventuate in the future? The program Medici and its evolution are discussed. The need for adaptation from a pure networked environment to a CD based package and finally to its present form as an online and iPod based interactive educational tool are explained. The methods used to make the transition from one form to the next are illustrated. The use of technology in education is likely to become more portable, but students still desire the ability to work on educational material without having to rely on the internet or expensive portable devices.
