Recommendations Regarding Computers in High School Education.
Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences, Washington, DC.
Recommendations include: (1) the development of a computer-literacy course at the junior-high level to inform students about the nature of computers and their impact on daily life; (2) the development of an independent follow-up course designed to develop proficiency in the use of computers; (3) the development of short modules emphasizing the application of mathematics to relevant problems and leading to the development of algorithms, with suggested examples; (4) the development of modules for use in fields other than mathematics, with suggested examples; (5) the development of special programs for the gifted student; (6) increased effort toward vocational computer training and the development of a learner's language related to COBOL; (7) that the National Science Foundation support development of programs for training teachers; and (8) that a national clearinghouse be established for information on computer activities and education in the schools.
