The second in a series on educational computing for teachers and administrators, this booklet offers a checklist for use in making decisions about program development, 11 case studies illustrating how teachers in Washington state have initiated programs, and a collection of articles on various aspects of educational computing programs.

Each of the 11 case studies includes a brief description of the setting, how interest began, steps taken, characteristics of the present program, and recommendations to others. The following article reprints are included in the resources: "How to Help Teachers Cross Over to Computers"; "Overcoming Fear of Unknown"; "An Approach to Integrating Computer Literacy into the K-8 Curriculum," by Beverly Hunter; "Evaluating Software: Be Hard on Software"; and "Choosing Hardware: Before Buying Computers."
