Nearly 150 papers presented at this conference, sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing, are included in this volume which surveys the state of the art of computer education. Nine papers provide an overview on such topics as computer science and mathematics, computer education in the 1970's, computers and the humanities, and mathematical learning models as tools for computer-assisted instruction. A series of papers discuss the social implications of computers on trade unions, public services, and governmental responsibilities. Part II of the volume, "Education about Computers," groups papers under these topics: computer education in secondary schools, teacher training, national schemes for computer education and governmental responsibilities, the place of computer and information science in higher education, education management, national and international efforts to develop computer education, the planning and execution of programs for computer specialists in universities, and professional training. Part III includes papers which discuss the practice of computer based learning, computer languages, simulation, and strategies for development and presentation of computer based learning exercises.
