Computers and Education in the Soviet Union.
Zender, Bryce F., Ed.
Recent decades in the Soviet Union have witnessed a prolific growth of technology. The school system has been under pressure to become more systematic and to supply more qualified candidates to meet the demand of industry. Computer technology has been introduced in order to facilitate more detailed attention to educational objectives. Individualized Programed instruction has been developed, and the system is designed to provide constant and immediate feedback to the student. The recent emphases of the development program have been: (1) the use of electronic computers for controlling the instructional process; (2) analysis of methods and algorithms for optimal instruction; (3) means of input and output for the computer during instruction; (4) construction of an adaptive training system; and (5) the use of computers to administer and organize the functioning of all levels of education. The next includes a collection of reports delivered at a conference held in the Soviet Union in 1968. (EMH)
