Proceedings of a Symposium on the Uses of Computers in Education.
Ohlman, Herbert, Ed.
If computers are to be used creatively in education, they should be made available to administrators, teachers, and students. Educational Data Processing (EDP) is a means to this end. Small and poor systems can join in cooperative county, state or regional computer systems efforts such as the New England Educational Data Systems (NEEDS) in whose philosophy EDP is a means to a more creative instructional use of computers, and whose financial structure is geared to this end. Alternatively, a school or system may "borrow," using a remote-access educational computing system: batch-processing or time-sharing computing. The Illinois Institute of Technology has developed courses in computer language and programing for high school students and teachers and has made its computer available to schools for $2300.00, including the cost of Bell Telephone equipment and installation. New York Institute of Technology's System for Individualizing and Optimizing Learning through Computer Management of the Educational Process synthesizes educationally related data such as media available resources, enabling teachers, students and administrators to choose and use wisely the best from available sources. Curriculum developers will have a scientific base for development. Multiprocessing and multiprograming concepts are also discussed. (MM)
