Educational Computing: Support Functions and Student Objectives.
Dependents Schools (DOD), Washington, DC.
This manual, which describes the Department of Defense Dependent Schools' educational computing program, briefly identifies and explains the potential uses of computer technology and provides direction for the development of computer utilization among elementary and secondary schools throughout the geographically dispersed system. The first two sections list student objectives for computer literacy and computer science. Under computer literacy, objectives cover a broad range of activities at a beginning level, which are implemented through the math curriculum and reinforced through the use of computers in other curricular areas. For computer science, objectives address specialized topics relating to computers. The final two sections cover the support functions of computer education services and school administrative functions. Services in support of the entire school computer education program are outlined, including the implementation of computer-based instructional areas and support of the computer literacy and computer science programs, with emphasis on the role of the school computer coordinator. A 2-page glossary explains computer-related terms. (LMM)
