Computers Plus: A Program to Develop Computer Literacy among Educators. Paper and Report Series No. 94.
Gray, Peter J.; Tafel, Jon
Designed to be used as a model for workshop planning, this report describes the development and implementation of a series of four summer workshops, entitled "Computers Plus," which were designed to increase the computer literacy of teachers and administrators. Intended to provide introductory students with basic concepts, hands-on computer experience, practice in software evaluation, and assistance in planning for microcomputer use, the workshops were offered jointly in June and July 1983 by the Northwest Regional Education Laboratory (NWREL) and the University of Portland in Portland, Oregon. Specific chapters suggest ways to design, organize, and operate workshops in order to meet the needs of diverse students. Evaluation results of the Computers Plus program that are reported are based on responses gathered from the NWREL Technology Center Workshop Evaluation Form and a participant questionnaire, and an assessment of the participants' technology background. Five recommendations and six references are listed. Appendices include the workshop registration form and materials and outlines for the four courses. (LMM)
