Computer Considerations for Vermont Schools.
Lengel, James G.
The first of a series designed to advise school staff on the use of computers in the curriculum, this booklet outlines several ways that computers can fit into the program of study in Vermont schools and suggests a method for schools to use in planning for their use. Emphasis is on computers as tools to help reach traditional educational goals. Three aspects are emphasized in planning for computer use: software, sociology, and computer literacy. Hardware is also briefly discussed. A matrix displays the applications of a variety of computer uses to several K-12 curriculum areas. Computer uses discussed include word processing, instruction, simulation, databases, calculation, communication, sociology, computer science, and programming. A suggested planning process for developing a school computer plan lists the following steps: involve the staff, complete the matrix to show uses, implement the plan, select hardware and software, and determine settings for computers in schools. Twelve references are listed. (LMM)
