Summary:
"Information technology promised to empower us and simplify our lives. In reality, we can all attest to the fact that the opposite is true," says Jeremy Cooperstock, the designer of the McGill's intelligent electronic classroom.

"Information technology promised to empower us and simplify our lives. In reality, we can all attest to the fact that the opposite is true," says Jeremy Cooperstock, the designer of the McGill's intelligent electronic classroom. "Modern presentation technology, for example, has made teaching in today's classrooms increasingly complex and daunting. Whereas fifty years ago, the only concern a teacher had was running out of chalk, faculty now struggle constantly to perform relatively simple tasks, such as connecting their computer output to the projector, switching to a video tape, and even turning on the lights! Technology's capacity to improve the teaching and learning experience is evident, but so far, its potential remains largely untapped."
