Teaching Elementary School Teachers To Use Logo with Gifted Students.
Lis, Jeanette Christie
This study addressed the problem of meeting the needs of elementary school gifted students in mainstream computer literacy instruction. The objectives of the study were to provide the teachers with a knowledge of Logo commands and concepts, and to help them develop a positive attitude toward the use of Logo. Twelve workshop sessions were held for a group of eight teachers. The teachers received instruction in the computer programming language, Logo, based on a study guide and sample programs. The guide contains theoretical background information about Logo, and related Logo activities that were designed to serve as a reference for developing additional activities. Teachers surveyed after the workshops indicated that they had adequate knowledge and materials to teach Logo. During the 3-week period after the workshop, all of the teachers used Logo activities at least once. These results indicate that the workshops, study guide, and sample programs provided the teachers with the confidence and ability to incorporate Logo into mainstream computer literacy instruction. Appendices contain the study guide, workshop lesson plans, program listings, and recommendations for workshop facilitators. (22 references) (Author/DB)
