The Future of Education in the Microcomputer Revolution.
Bitter, Gary G.
The author reviews the history of the microcomputer and addresses its application needs in special education. Among needs cited are the ability to store and retrieve curriculum resource information and to develop diagnostic testing and automated test construction reporting devices. He also sees the need for software that is neither threatening nor dogmatic. In a discussion of computer literacy, he describes a curriculum for K-12 intended to promote programing as well as computer awareness. Innovative computer applications used with autistic, learning disabled, and other handicapped students are described. Possibilities for fifth generation computer applications are considered. (CL)
