What are the popular rationales for using computers in schools? Are there others that are being neglected? How do they stand up to criticism? Are they the same in both developing and industrial countries? Is there any evidence that priorities are changing? This paper addresses these questions and draws particularly on recent research, funded by the Harold Macmillan Trust, in developing countries of Africa, Asia and the Arabic-speaking world.
