    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 future|and we believe this future is almost upon us|what 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 Web-based cooperation|with occasional use of pencil and paper. Learning how to learn in this environment is as important as learning about the mathematics itself.
