summary This paper will outline the means by which electronic media is organized and utilized in educational practice in the context of the secondary school system within the greater Toronto area in Ontario, Canada. Current models include computer mediated learning as an extension, resource and support for traditional classroom teaching and learning, the delivery of credit courses on-line which includes distance education, and co-operative education programs whereby students learn by working in areas outside their home region while being supervised and monitored by their home-based teacher. In addition to disclosing how these practices work, I will analyze some advantages as well as challenges arising from their deployment that derive from my research and discussion with teachers directly involved in such programs
