Abstract : This paper presents an overview of recent developments in automation, cybernetics, and data-processing technology that have direct relevance for the future of education. The discussion focuses on the use of computers to provide individualized instruction, but consideration is also given to the application of data-processing equipment to process fiscal accounts and administrative records, to provide automated analysis and assessment of student cumulative records, and to assist in administrative planning. Research at SDC is used to illustrate these developments and their relevance to education. (Author)
