- Appropriate use of the internet in computer science courses
- Pilgrim, Chris J.; Leung, Y. K.
- New computer and communication technologies now provide the educationalist with a wide range of tools for use in the educational process. Many of these technologies such as computer-assisted learning and multimedia have had quite a rocky road to becoming effective tools. It was only after these tools emerged from the initial hype that they truly found a place in education. The Internet is still in this initial hype phase and is in danger of being used superficially. This paper begins the development of a theoretical basis for the appropriate use of Internet tools in computer science education. The proposed selection matrix will help realise the potential of these tools within the context of maximising learning outcomes.
