Use of the Computer in Teaching and Learning.
International Federation for Information Processing, Geneva (Switzerland).
This booklet was written to answer some basic questions about the use of the computer in education. A number of ways in which computers are used in the learning process are listed, followed by the rationale for using computers in education. Benefits of using computers to improve instruction, to provide learner control, and to develop a computer-literate society are discussed along with the potential the computer provides for cost saving in alternative learning environments. Several approaches to the development of instructional material are suggested, followed by approaches which might be used to facilitate acceptance of computers. Key personnel roles in the use of the computer in education are outlined. A list of important considerations in the acquisition process for a computer are given, and the booklet concludes with a comment on the prospects for international cooperation in computer-based education systems.
