Abstract: Students with notebook computers connected to a campus backbone by wireless cards are increasingly common. Extensive use of communication technology such as NetMeeting is less common but should be the norm in a couple of years. And, if this were an interactive, online article, we could provide a live link to video of students working through our module. If our scenario is an accurate glimpse of the futureand we
believe this future is almost upon uswhat are the issues for student learning? . . . Technology is changing the way students approach learning. Increasingly, they will conceive of their work in terms of interactive learning materials, computer algebra systems, spreadsheets, and Webbased cooperationwith occasional use of pencil and paper. Learning how to learn in this environment is as important as learning about the mathematics itself.
