  • The authors argue that computer technology was in the process of rapid change, and accompanying the proliferation of high power computing engines were the ever-increasing demands on information processing. It was therefore of very great importance that students in higher forms be provided with a computing course aimed at not only the basic elements but a degree of breadth as well. The authors further argue that as this field of study was likely to be in a dynamic state of flux in the years to come, with new technologies and new ideas coming in, it was of vital importance for teachers in computer studies to have a solid foundation in computing concepts and be kept abreast with some of the developments in the information technology arena. As a large number of graduate teachers in computer studies had trainings in areas other than computing, as the authors noted, it was thus especially important to design a broad-based computer curriculum with sufficient depth to address their needs.
