Computer Education for Development; Proceedings Based on the Rio Symposium on Computer Education for Developing Countries (August 6/12-1972).
Bussel, Claudia, Ed.
The need for a symposium on computer education for developing countries has been present almost since the birth of the first electronic computer. This premise is based on the facts that a computerized society has the potential for making giant strides in development, and that computerization demands a major commitment of both the financial and manpower resources of a nation. The second point leads the less developed nations to be cautious of their computer involvement while the more affluent countries can afford to make errors and still widen the development gap. It is a question of cost-effectiveness. This volume contains the session and panel papers delivered at just such a symposium. (Author/SJ)
