critical thinking, problem solving, written communication and the ability to work collaboratively ( Uchida, 1996), provided there is accommodation between the instructional requirements of the classroom environment and the known capability of the existing technology.

In the Mission to Mars unit, technology does not simply provide a modern format for practicing basic skills, as it does in many classrooms ( Secules, Cottom, Bray, and Miller, 1997). Students use technology to gather information not found in their school libraries, and write research reports. They create multimedia supports for oral presentations (public displays of knowledge), and discuss their findings with other researchers in their classroom and across the country. Being part of Schools For Thought ( Lamon et al.), a large national project, has provided the necessary institutional support for this undertaking. Having the opportunity to assist teachers and students in the development of technology to assist in the utilization of the World Wide Web has been both challenging and rewarding. Using the theoretical perspective of Koschmann et al. ( 1996) to guide out thinking along the process has been invaluable.
