Abstract

Acadia University in Nova Scotia,
Canada offers unparalleled opportunities to
conduct action research on the
innovative use of instructional
technologies. This laptop
institution (the first in Canada)
supplies some 4000 students with
anytime-anywhere campus access
through the use of networked
A20m IBM laptop computers. The
School of Education, as a teacher
training facility, is particularly
interested in the pedagogical
applications of computers to
classrooms. This paper provides
the framework for an institutional
session on the evolving use of
electronic discussion groups.
