And by connecting progressive ideas with computers, they may have finally found a way not only to present them in an appealing, updated form, but also to make them work. For the difficulty with the ideal of active, student-centered education was not simply the opposition it aroused, but the demands it imposed on teachers and schools. The new technology may help manage those demands. "
