From carefully selected narratives of others and him, Judah Schwartz is able to realize the main principles of design creation for various kinds of software. Issues involved in the discussion of designing educational software comprise of the proper selection of topic and pedagogical scheme, the extent and kind of control and accountability that should be contained within the software as opposed to the amount and sort of control and accountability in the part of the students and teachers who utilize the resource. Dilemmas regarding the entry of computers in education are not only resolved by overcoming the attachment to what is “traditional,” but also by trying new, interactive ways of teaching any subject matter. Arguments ended with the presentation of conflicts and opportunities posted by both straightforwardness and intricacy of software design.
