Summary

Since computers appeared on the commercial market in 1950, computer technology has become a necessary part of modern education, both as subject matter and as an aid for teachers and administrators. Despite its potential however, high costs and prejudice have delayed acceptance by educators. An effort, therefore, must be made to overcome misunderstandings which obscure the benefits of computers in education. Computers can aid rather than replace the teacher, not only by handling the enormous amounts of paperwork involved in registration, keeping records, scheduling, and administrative tasks, but also by serving as a library for data retrieval and by aiding in counseling and grading papers. By relieving teachers of paperwork, computers could allow more time for planning classwork and for individual sessions with students. The high cost of instructional programs is a major factor in inhibiting innovation, but linkups with regional computer networks could make it possible to share costs as well as benefits. Such linkups could make it possible for even the poorer schools to provide flexible, individualized instruction and offer courses which would otherwise be unavailable to their students. (RM)
