This timely new publication examines the notion of computer as medium and what such an idea might mean for education. The Knowledge Medium: Designing Effective Computer-Based Educational Learning Environments suggests that the understanding of computers as a medium may be a key to re-envisioning educational technology. Because the subject is interdisciplinary, combining science with the humanities, the theoretical discussion draws from a broad range of disciplines: psychology, educational theory, film criticism, and computer science.
