Computer Literacy. Part I--A Manager's Guide. A Staff Development Publication.
Lloyd, Jo; And Others
This report is a guide for colleges of further education and training agencies in Great Britain on implementing computer literacy components of further education and training programs. The report gives findings and recommendations for the role and implementation of computer literacy based on a 2-year curriculum research project funded by the Further Education Unit centered at Gloucestershire College of Arts and Technology. While the primary aim of the project was to develop and evaluate curricula, hardware, software, and other resources for computer literacy in vocational preparation programs, the material described is suitable for teaching computer literacy to the uninitiated throughout the entire age range covered by further and adult education. This volume is intended primarily for providers of computer literacy such as college principals, vice principals, and heads of departments. It contains three chapters that provide an overview of computer literacy in the context of educational and training programs; give content, resource, and staff development recommendations; and provide strategies for assessment. A glossary of vocational education and other education and training terms appropriate to computer literacy is included in this volume. (KC)
