Computational models of human learning have had both a direct and an indirect impact on education. Some computer tutors have incorporated explicit models of student learning. Many applications of computers in support of student learning have been motivated by particular computational models. A rough and ready taxonomy of the different approaches to the use of computers in education will be presented. Particular emphasis will be placed on how learners can better learn about their own learning through using computers.
