Educators Information Technology System; Project EDITS. Final Report.
Brislin, Patricia B.
A project, the Educators Information Technology System (EDITS), was designed to instruct teachers in data processing, broaden the knowledge of educators concerning the impact and utilization possibilities of computers, and allow teachers to develop techniques for using computer information technology in the classroom and in administration. Participants, representing diverse areas and levels of education, were provided with individualized instruction from a tutorial team, laboratory experiences, field trips, and lectures from professionals in the field. The curriculum included three phases: the first was designed to provide general background and programing, the second to instruct in techniques and applications, and the third to provide advanced applications to individual disciplines. From projects completed by participants during the program and from activities of the participants after completion of the program, project EDITS was judged to be successful in providing an effective technique for dissemination of computer information technology.
