Managing Cooperative Vocational Education Programs Using the Microcomputer.
Smith, Terry R.
Ways in which microcomputers can be used in cooperative vocational education programs in secondary schools are presented. It is stated that the future of cooperative education depends on its ability to be accountable for the time that students spend outside of the classroom and that the microcomputer can be an effective tool in meeting this need. A variety of tasks that microcomputers can perform are listed for the following areas: (1) administration; (2) guidance; (3) management of records and inventories; (4) professional development; (5) instructional management; (6) assistance to vocational student organizations; (7) coordination; and (8) school-community relations. Examples of a training plan, a weekly coordinator's report, and a student wage-hour report generated on a microcomputer are appended. (DC)
