It may be that those innovations and technologies that facilitate the diffusion of related information will be most important in improving world housing conditions. Currently the communication of innovation around the world is impeded by incomplete literacy and a multiplicity of languages. Even the diffusion of existing science and technology is difficult under these curcumstances. Future innovations may fare no better. Computer-based education is a technology that shows potential for addressing the need to disseminate new and existing information more effectively. This paper reviews this potential and examines how innovations in several housing topics may be communicated.
