Hype, Hope, and the Information Highway:

Limited-Access Tollways or Multiple-Access Freeways?

As a child of the 1950s and 60s, I have to admit to being a bit skeptical about much of the hype in the media about the Information Highway. Haven't we had exaggerated hopes about new technologies before, only to be disappointed later by humdrum reality?

In grade school, I heard a lot about how television was going to revolutionize classrooms. My own school was part of a pilot program in the Chicago area that put televisions in every classroom with great fanfare. We were going to have access to great science and social studies programs that would excite our young minds and give us access to some of the best teachers and instructional material in the nation. Sound familiar?
