State Plan for Computer Utilization in North Carolina Public Schools.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Educational Media.
Intended to establish a philosophical base for the acquisition and utilization of computers for both administrative and instructional purposes, this paper begins by briefly describing instructional applications and listing the necessary elements of a computer literacy program. Administrative applications are discussed in terms of traditional business data processing, computer managed instruction, and information networking capability. Six recommendations are offered to help schools implement microcomputers into their ongoing programs. A sample curriculum design incorporates the developmental sequences of computer awareness, exploration, and specialization, and provides objectives as well as suggestions for implementation. An administrative model describes some possible areas of microcomputer use at both the school system and school building levels. A summary addresses concerns relating to computer utilization and implementation and the role of the State Department of Public Instruction as it provides leadership to local systems. (LMM)
