The Use of the Computer in Louisiana Schools. Bulletin 1679. Revised.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge.
This publication briefly reports the findings of a second annual (1982-83) survey, which measured the status of computer use to identify problems and needs in the Louisiana educational community for use by the Department of Education in designing activities to aid the state's schools in effective computer use. Data are included from a survey instrument which was returned by 1,079 public and nonpublic Louisiana schools. Currently 345 of the responding schools are using computers in instruction. A summary of findings, which includes seven data tables, is followed by conclusions and recommendations. The major part of the report comprises appendices that are designed to enable educators to locate schools using similar computers in similar areas in order to share ideas, educational software, and hardware information. Included are the survey instrument and an indication of the grade levels and subject areas in which schools reported using computers, a list showing the make and model of computer used listed by school, and a list by computer make of the schools using specific computers.
