A Teacher Survey NEA Report: Computers in the Classroom.
National Education Association, Washington, DC. Research Div.
This report is based on data gathered from the National Education Association's (NEA) survey, "Computers in the Classroom," which involved 1,028 elementary and secondary school teachers' responses to a questionnaire gathering information about their knowledge of computers, instructional experience with computers, and opinions regarding a number of computer-related topics, such as inservice training, public school policy, and the effects of computer use on students. Chapter 1 provides an introduction to the survey. Chapter 2 reviews survey procedures. Chapter 3 describes the support and preparation of responding teachers for computerization in education. Teachers who use computers in the classroom are described in chapter 4. In chapter 5, teachers who use computers are compared with teachers who do not. Chapter 6 concludes the report with a summary of survey results and a discussion of their implications for policies of the NEA and its various state and local affiliates. Also included in the report are 36 tables and 5 appendices, containing a glossary of computer survey terms, copies of the survey materials used, descriptions of response patterns and statistical analyses, and a summary of federal initiatives for education and technology.
