During the broadcast by the Baker's Dozen, the discussion was divided into four categories:
1- Theory and Practices Using Technology
2- Expected and Assured Outcomes with Technology Use
3- Changes in Knowledge Acquisition as it Pertains to the Technological Interface
4- The Integration of Technology into the Teaching and Learning Processes.
I, Dick Kuettner your host, posed one or more question in each category and designated a member or members of the Baker's Dozen Discussion Group to respond to the question asked. Questions which were used for the broadcast were solicited from the potential viewing audience.

A Concluding Question for General Discussion
