This paper focuses on one aspect of the math, science and technology program within the School of Education and Allied Human Services at Hofstra University. Hofstra's M.A.-MST degree program for in-service teachers has been cited by the New York State Dept. of Education as a model for integrating math/science/technology in the elementary schools. This paper describes a computer technology in education course in which students learn to become problem-solvers and self-learners through an introduction to a hands-on, self-paced, individualized program. Robotics is introduced through the use of a binary interface that is plugged into the printer port of an IBM or compatible computer. Students learn the binary number system and learn to manipulate remote control toys, trains, doll houses or any invention they have created.
