The Role of Computers in Education During the 70's.
Hansen, Duncan N.
The concept of an information management system is presented in order that the major educational functions can be conceptionally and operationally integrated within one computer center during the seventies. These major informational functions include: (1) information retrieval of administrative data; (2) scientific computing; and (3) computer-supported instruction via computer-managed instruction, computer-assisted instruction, and learning simulation. The primary need for more sophisticated training of professional staff and for support of personnel within educational institutions is discussed in great detail. The paper concludes with an economic analysis of some of the computer alternatives opened for support of instruction. (Author)
