Elements of Information and Information Processing for Teachers in Secondary Schools.
International Federation for Information Processing, Geneva (Switzerland). Working Group on Secondary School Education.
The efficient use of information depends on the way it is organized. Haphazard information may serve some useful purpose, but for a particular purpose, information needs to be processed into another structure which more easily fulfills that purpose. This booklet examines the concepts of information and information processing with the intention of leading on to a study of the way in which problems can be formulated so that a computer can assist in the solving process. It discusses: (1) what information is, (2) how it is represented and coded, (3) how it can be organized, and (4) how it can be processed. Appendices describe additional concepts and suggest topics suitable for group discussion. (Author/DAG)
