III. KEY QUESTION

 My image of a modern educated person is one who can cope and become successful in the modern technological environment. To reify this image of an educated person, I drew upon my personal experience, knowledge, and skills to seek ways of employing the resources at hand. I decided to revamp my English Language Arts curriculum to integrate it with computer technology relevant to today's society. The underlying question throughout this procedure was:

How might I most effectively integrate modern technology into my English Language Arts curriculum so that the learner would become, and could be perceived as an educated person in the modern world?

 As the vocabulary of microcomputer hardware and software is fairly common in education today, such terminology is freely used, without being defined, in this study.
