Computers in Swiss Secondary Education.
This paper describes the current state of secondary school computer literacy instruction in the Swiss canton of Vaud and the activities of a nationwide coordinating group concerned with the use of computers in Swiss secondary education. Information is presented on the requirements for instituting computer literacy instruction in Vaud, the types of micro- and minicomputers acquired by Vaud secondary schools, difficulties in the adoption of computer literacy courses, the development of computer-related teacher training programs, and the current level of computer assisted instruction in Vaud. It is noted that the use of computers in Swiss secondary education varies enormously from canton to canton. Also described are the experimental use of a 24-hour introductory computer literacy course in several schools in the French and German speaking parts of Switzerland and other activities of the nationwide coordinating group on computers.
