Grayson, Lawrence P.; Robbins, Janet B.
Because of the potential of computers for improving education, the need for educating people about computers, and the major role that the U. S. Office of Education (USOE) has had in fostering the application of computers in education, it is important that a record be made of USOE's support of computer and computer-related projects. This report attempts to provide such a record: it considers the growth of computers in education, summarizes USOE support, and describes categories and legislative authority for support. A summary of project information by subject category is followed by a list of project abstracts organized by legislative act. The abstracts are listed under the appropriate act, with information about their sources and support. Regional Educational Laboratories, Research and Development Centers, and ERIC are also described.
