Computer Education - A Survey of Seventh and Eighth Grade Teachers.
Bassler, Otto; And Others
Tennessee is in the process of implementing a computer literacy plan for grades 7 and 8. Determining the views of teachers in those grades about computers, what they think students should be taught about computers, and the extent to which they agree with aspects of the plan was the goal of this survey. Data were analyzed from 122 teachers and principals in a large metropolitan school system. It appears that a substantial number of teachers have had no direct experience with computers; thus training is needed. Only one-fifth of the schools in the district have microcomputers for student use. The teachers had positive views about computer education. Those who had operated or programmed a computer were generally more positive in their attitudes toward computer literacy. Data and the questionnaire are both included. (MNS)
