THE UNIQUENESS OF THE INDIVIDUAL.
ROBERTS, TOMMY L.
THE ETHICS OF STUDENT-COMPUTER INTERACTIVE SYSTEMS IN GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING WERE INVESTIGATED. MAJOR TERMS EMPLOYED IN THE DISCUSSION ARE OPERATIONALLY DEFINED. THE ADVANTAGES OF THE COMPUTER-HUMAN RELATIONSHIP AS COMPARED TO THE HUMAN-HUMAN RELATIONSHIP ARE--(1) THE HIGH SPEED COMPUTER IS CAPABLE OF MORE RAPID AND EFFICIENT SEARCHING AND PROCESSING OF USEFUL INFORMATION, (2) NOISE CONTROL AND PRECISION PROGRAMMING RESULT IN MORE ACCURATE TRANSMISSION OF USEFUL INFORMATION, (3) THE SIMPLICITY OF THE COMPUTER SYSTEM FACILITATES NOISE-FREE COMMUNICATION, (4) COMPUTER-GENERATED COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS ARE LESS INTERRUPTED BY NOISE FACTORS, AND (5) COMPUTER-HUMAN SYSTEMS, BECAUSE OF THE RELATIVE SIMPLICITY OF ONE ELEMENT OF THE SYSTEM, REDUCE THE COMPLEXITY OF THE INTERACTION AND RESULT IN LESS NOISE IN THE WHOLE COMMUNICATIVE PROCESS. THE COMPUTER-BASED COUNSELING SYSTEM WOULD FREE THE COUNSELOR FROM FUNCTIONS DEPENDENT UPON INFORMATION GATHERING, DATA ANALYSIS, AND REPORTING. THE COUNSELOR CAN THEN CONCENTRATE ON STUDENTS WITH EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS. THE COMPUTER-BASED SYSTEM CAN IMPROVE DATA PROCESSING, WOULD PROTECT THE COUNSELEE FROM AN INVASION OF HIS PRIVACY, AND CAN HELP THE STUDENT IN THE DECISION-MAKING PROCESS. FUTURE APPLICATIONS OF COMPUTER-BASED SYSTEMS ARE DISCUSSED. THIS SPEECH WAS PRESENTED AT THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION, CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, FEBRUARY 1968. (PS)
