Educational Computing in the Clarksville-Montgomery County Schools. A Five-Year Plan. Fall 1983-Spring 1988.
Hodgson, Frank M.
This report begins with a summary and discussion of computer programs on site prior to fall 1983, classroom computers, mainframe computers, and major goals for computing. A chart summarizing methods of achievement of the system-wide computing plan details its goals, objectives, and actual or projected completion dates. An overview of computer-related use in the school system outlines three approaches that can be supported by microcomputers: instructional development, curriculum development, and teacher/administrative management. Guidelines for software review and evaluation include evaluation criteria, an evaluation form, and software review procedures. Additional topics covered include legal issues related to computing in the school system, standardization of computer hardware, current status and present system site location of computers, inservice and staff development, community involvement in school computing, organization for microcomputing, the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System computer curriculum, and the budget for the 5-year plan. An appendix presents a statewide Computer Literacy Plan for the seventh and eighth grades proposed by the Tennessee Department of Education, which includes tentative goals and objectives, outlines a plan for providing teacher training in computer literacy, examines the acquisition of microcomputer hardware, and lists additional resources needed at the state level. A seven-page glossary is also appended. (LMM)
