An investigation into the interactions between users of educational software i.e. the student, teacher and software designer is given in this book, providing theoretical frameworks for studying educational software.; The existing approach to selection of educational software is examined and shown to be seriously limited, focusing only on the attributes of software packages rather than on educational questions. The authors highlight current inadequacies of existing selection techniques and refer to a variety of educational software drawn from practice in primary, secondary and further education.
