INDICOM. (Individual Communications System). Final Report.
Waterford Township School District, Pontiac, MI.
The Individual Communications System (INDICOM) was begun in 1967 in Waterford School District, Michigan, as one of the first public school computer-assisted instruction projects in the Midwest. Its specific aim in developing CAI was to fuse the latest technology with the best thinking in education so as to create an instructional system which would allow each student to enter at his own level and to proceed at his own pace. This document serves as a yearbook and complete description of the program and its personnel. INDICOM's directors maintained the thesis that instructional innovation must begin with the teachers (who were trained in CAI program design) or it will end outside the classroom door. Full description of the development of all aspects of the program is given. The feeling is expressed throughout that INDICOM's experience has been a great success and that it documents the potential of computer instruction in individualizing teaching and in solving the problems of U.S. public education.
