The Impact of New Technology on the Accounting Curriculum.
This paper analyzes ways in which the new, relatively cheap, user friendly technology and associated software is changing the way that accounting is being taught. Techniques that have been available, in principle, for years, are now widely available. The newer techniques stress decision making for planning, and, to a lesser extent, control, in contrast to the older technology which, in the accounting context, is more appropriate for transaction processing and control. The impact on the curriculum, the teaching methods, and other pedagogic issues are discussed. The problems of introducing the new equipment are outlined and the benefits are assessed. (Author)
