TUTTLE, FRANCIS
AN INSTITUE WAS HELD TO DEVELOP TECHNICALLY QUALIFIED TEACHERS FOR DATA PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY PROGRAMS. THIRTY-FIVE TEACHERS WERE TRAINED TO HELP ALLEVIATE A CRITICAL NEED FOR QUALIFIED COMPUTER SCIENCE TEACHERS AND AT THE SAME TIME PROVIDE STAFF MEMBERS FOR A NEW STATEWIDE, DATA-COMMUNICATIONS, COMPUTER PROCESSING TECHNICAL PROGRAM. RESULTS OF THE FIRST SUMMER SEMINAR SUBSTANTIATED THE INITIAL HYPOTHESES THAT (1) QUALITY TEACHERS IN TELECOMMUNICATIONS DATA PROCESSING CAN BE TRAINED IN 2 WEEKS PROVIDING THEY HAVE AN ADEQUATE BACKGROUND, (2) CRITERIA CAN BE ESTABLISHED FOR SELECTION OF TEACHERS TO BE TRAINED TO TEACH DATA PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY IN POST-HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAMS, AND (3) PROSPECTIVE DATA PROCESSING TEACHERS CAN DEVELOP AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE ROLE OF TECHNICIANS IN AN AUTOMATED, INDUSTRIALIZED SOCIETY. MORE CONCLUSIVE RESEARCH FACTS WERE EXPECTED TO BE OBTAINED FROM THE SECOND SUMMER INSTITUTE. THE APPENDIXES INCLUDED A BIBLIOGRAPHY. A DATA COMMUNICATIONS GLOSSARY, AND A RESEARCH QUESTIONNAIRE FORM. (AL)
