This paper highlights some difficulties with interpreting the literature dealing with the implementation of computers in schools which need to be addressed if future research is to be more effective in predicting how to turn a vision of learning enhanced by computer use into a reality. It goes on to suggest an approach which might help to overcome some of the problems identified.
