Computers and Information Systems in Education.
Goodlad, John I.; And Others
In an effort to increase the awareness of educators about the potential of electronic data processing (EDP) in education and acquaint the EDP specialists with current educational problems, this book discusses the routine uses of EDP for business and student accounting, as well as its innovative uses in instruction. A description of computers and electronic accounting machines includes an evaluation of their potentials and limitations in a variety of school situations. Case reports from schools and universities document a discussion of the current uses of EDP in general business accounting, general administration, student accounting, instructional programs, educational information systems, research and experimentation, and computer science. In presenting the problems and issues raised by an automated school in information systems, the book notes those which have implications for future research and development projects. Criteria designed to assist funding agencies in judging the merits of research and development proposals submitted to them are set forth. An appendix contains a description of 27 educational EDP projects presently in existence. A bibliography and a subject index supplement the text. (JY)
