Computer Literacy for Teachers.
Sarapin, Marvin I.; Post, Paul E.
Basic concepts of computer literacy are discussed as they relate to industrial arts/technology education. Computer hardware development is briefly examined, and major software categories are defined, including database management, computer graphics, spreadsheet programs, telecommunications and networking, word processing, and computer assisted and managed instruction. A list of applications is offered to identify the potential for incorporating the microcomputer in industrial arts/technology education. Examples suggest ways to use computers to account, budget, compute, communicate, control, design, file, grade, instruct, promote, purchase, problem solve, record, report, research, and test. Also provided is a list of the titles of the commercial microcomputer software for the Apple II compatible computer that is being used to implement microcomputer use in the Department of Industrial Technology at Purdue University, and Purdue's Technology Education Software Bank is described. Five references are listed. (LMM)
