- In what parts of our school systems are teachers ready to develop the intermediate and advanced skills supported by computers and the Internet?
- How will computers and the Internet extend and improve our TPD efforts?
- To take advantage of available capacities and infrastructure, and to meet teachers’ needs, should we locate computers for TPD in schools, teacher training colleges, or regional centers?
- What is the outlook for gains in national electrical infrastructure? In technical-support capacity? How do these projections affect planning for the use of computers and the Internet?
- Do other technologies, such as radio, or other models, such as site-based TPD, have greater potential to meet our objectives?
