No Sleep Till Brooklyn #2


Original Caption:

Computer's a Tutor.

Brooklyn -- Students at Brooklyn's P.S. 244 receive individualized instruction in arithmetic from a computer located several miles away in Manhattan. Beginning this fall the computer based system, with 200 units in 15 of the city's elementary schools, will add reading and spelling instruction to its program for some 6,000 pupils. After school hours, the computer (an RCA Spectra 70) serves various remedial and adult education programs and handles administrative data processing for New York City's Board of Education. (1968)
