The advent of the computer is having a great influence on our society and the educational system. Many public school systems have contracted with institutions and organizations for use of their computer facility in class scheduling, pupil accounting, fiscal accounting, preparation of student grades and the like. The computer has not, with the exception of some experimental situations, been widely used in the public schools as an instructional tool. The advent of the time-sharing and multi-tasking computer provides the opportunity for public schools to avail themselves of an instructional computer at a reasonable cost without employing specialized computer scientists. It is this kind of facility that has been in use since August, 1969, at Ames Senior High.
