Abstract

The papers in this publication are edited versions of some of the lectures read at a small meeting held in Albena, Bulgaria from 3 to 5 May 1984. The main goal of the meeting was to explore the possibility of starting an activity at IIASA in the domain of computer applications in education in general, and to the education of children in particular.

A secondary aim of the meeting was to identify the potential focus where IIASA could develop a certain comparative advantage in this quite exposed area.

This set of papers reflects the main ideas forwarded and interest in this topic was confirmed by the very lively discussion. The meeting exposed very early the vast scientific areas and disciplines involved in the problem of computers and education; a major reason preventing the needed focusing process taking place, and something that has to be achieved in future activities together with the emerging constituency.

The individual contributions are ordered starting with those of a more general character through descriptions of national programs to detailed case studies.

I would like to acknowledge the help of Susie Riley in preparing the manuscripts for publication.
