Summary

In order to communicate a feeling for the costs of the new instructional technology tools, the author presents an estimated annual cost table for three major instructional technologies--instructional television, computer access, and computer assisted instruction (CAI). He builds a model school district of 100,000 elementary and secondary students and discusses the costs of various configurations of media for the district. He identifies eight key variables which are critical in making these estimates, and points out ways in which they may be manipulated to reduce the costs of instructional technology. The question of whether instructional technology will be used in addition to conventional teaching methods, or whether it will become a substitute for some of them, he predicts, will be answered by comparing costs per student hour.
