PEDAGOGY AND CYBERNETICS.
STOIAN, STANCIU
CYBERNETICS, OR "THE ART OF ENSURING THE EFFICIENCY OF ACTIONS," MUST BE A TOOL SUPPORTING PEDAGOGY, THE EDUCATIONAL PHENOMENON, THAT IS DETERMINED BY COMMUNIST PARTY POLICY. ALTHOUGH ANALOGIES BETWEEN MEN AND MACHINES DERIVE FROM THE CONCEPTS OF A SYSTEM (A CONFIGURATION OF STABLE ELEMENTS), INFORMATION (A PROBABILITY SCIENCE), ALGORITHM (A LOGICAL ORDERED SCHEME), FINALITY (MAINTENANCE OF STABILITY), AND FEEDBACK (NON-CONTINUOUS SELF-CONTROL), MEN ARE SUPERIOR DUE TO THEIR CONSCIENCES AND THOUGHT PROCESSES WHICH ARE NOT AUTOMATIC REFLEXES (CONTRARY TO THE AMERICAN VIEWPOINT). CYBERNETICS (E.G., PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION) APPLIED TO PEDAGOGY IS THUS LIMITED TO A GUARANTEE THAT ALL INFORMATION TO BE LEARNED IS PRESENTED, ABSORBED, AND VERIFIED, BECAUSE THE SPONTANEITY AND DYNAMISM OF EDUCATION AND THE TEACHER-PUPIL INTERACTION IS ESSENTIAL. SHORTAGE OF TRAINED TEACHERS AND HIGH EQUIPMENT COSTS DELAY PROGRESS IN USING CYBERNETIC THEORY IN EDUCATION.
