The McLuhan age posed a special problem for teachers of reading. Realizing the power of non-print as an educational tool, they have had to search for the best ways to use media to strengthen, not detract from, the developing literacy of their students. Often this difficulty, as well as the expense of materials or the poor quality of available software have turned the "media revolution" into something less than a skirmish in many classrooms and schools.
