    Why do we study Microcomputers? • Embedded systems use microcontrollers or microcomputers. • Some interesting statistics (from a fe ears ago)Some interesting statistics (from a few years ago) – An average American interacts with or more embedded systems every day. – 95% of all microprocessor will be sold each year for embedded systems. The authors advance a preliminary definition of successful microcomputer use that focuses on how teachers integrate microcomputers with their ongoing instruction. Potential means of integration are discussed, including teachers' instructional goals, ongoing curriculum, computer-based learning activities, appropriateness of integration, and Cited by: 1.
