ABSTRACT
Since the early 1960s, Bolt Beranek and Newman mathematicians, scientists, and engineers have explored ways to use computer and communications technologies to improve learning and teaching. Such work has pioneered the development of computational models that enabled new approaches to mathematics and science inquiry. <p> Web Extra: <a href="http://www.computer.org/portal/pages/annals/articles/xtras/a1-2006/a1feurzeig.html">View additional detailed examples of interactions, and additional figures, from several educational technology programs of Wallace Feurzeig and his colleagues: SocraticSystem, Buggy, and Function Machines.</a></p>
INDEX TERMS
learning technology, mathematics education, instructional strategies, educational programming languages, visual algorithms, parallel processes, computer science
