Abstract : Four areas of computer applications to education are described: (1) the computer as a subject of instruction; (2) as a tool of instruction; (3) as a research and development tool; and (4) as a management tool. These applications are viewed in the context of an operational time-sharing system connecting many schools with a central computer. Three problem areas in implementing such a system are discussed: (1) man-machine communication; (2) cost-effectiveness; and (3) user acceptance.
