Recommendations for Implementing Computer Literacy in Oregon Secondary Schools.
Neill, Michael J.
This study, undertaken for the Oregon Commission on Computers in Education, first addresses the reasons for undertaking a computer literacy program in Oregon's secondary schools and then provides a brief synopsis of the status of computer education in the state. The rationale for the study of computer technology and the impact of computers upon society is discussed. Recommendations for defining and assessing computer literacy as a discipline, for placing computer literacy within the context of existing course goals, and for the training of teachers in computer literacy are presented. Computer resources available to Oregon schools are then identified. A 31-item bibliography accompanies the text. (Author/JL)
