What Computers Can Do Now.
Wightman, Lawrence
This paper concerns the use of the computer in schools. Several specific operational computer applications useful to counselors are discussed. These are: (1) the Ventura, which is the most comprehensive system; (2) the services available from NEEDS; (3) course selection; (4) updating information; and (5) making decisions, particularly occupational choices. Computer assisted guidance and counseling supports and supplements what the counselor does. However, some problems may arise due to the use of computers: (1) impersonal feelings; (2) high cost; (3) the system needs to be tailor made for each local area; and (4) the negative attitudes of teachers toward such technology in education.
