THIRD GENERATION COMPUTER CURRICULUM AND INNOVATIVE TEACHING METHODS AT EL CAMINO COLLEGE.
FEDRICK, ROBERT J.
A 1967 QUESTIONNAIRE SURVEY IN THE EL CAMINO JUNIOR COLLEGE DISTRICT INDICATED THE EXISTENCE OF 115 COMPUTER SYSTEMS IN 64 COMPANIES, WITH A TREND TOWARD THIRD GENERATION SYSTEMS. WHILE UNIT RECORD SYSTEMS WERE USED IN ABOUT HALF OF THE COMPANIES SURVEYED, THEIR USE WAS DEEMPHASIZED, AND EMPLOYERS INDICATED NEED FOR TRAINING IN PROGRAMING, MAGNETIC DISK SYSTEMS, SYSTEM DESIGN, TAPE SYSTEMS, AND COMPUTER OPERATIONS. THEIR GREATEST NEED FOR EMPLOYEES WAS IN POSITIONS INVOLVING SYSTEMS ANALYSIS AND PROGRAMING. ADDITION OF MORE EXPENSIVE EQUIPMENT INCREASES PROBLEMS AT THE COLLEGES IN SCHEDULING OF TIME FOR ADMINISTRATIVE OPERATION AND FOR STUDENT "HANDS-ON" EXPERIENCE. FOUR POSSIBLE MEANS OF INCREASING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TRAINING ARE VIDEO TAPE FOR OBSERVATION OF THE ACTUAL OPERATION OF THE COMPUTER IN PROCESSING OF STUDENT PROGRAMS, THE USE OF PROGRAMED TEXTS, LABORATORY ASSISTANTS IN THE OPERATIONAL PHASES, AND THE USE OF COMMERCIALLY PREPARED AUDIO EDUCATION PACKAGES.
