Development of a Computer Assisted Instruction Course for the Training of Spanish-Speaking Teachers in Elementary School Mathematics. Final Report.
Suydam, Marilyn N.
"Elmath," a computer-assisted instruction (CAI) course intended for in-service training of teachers of elementary school mathematics, has been translated into Spanish, together with accompanying handbook, achievement tests, and attitude scale. The English version has been used successfully by the Appalachia Regional Laboratory and by The Pennsylvania State University. Procedures followed in the translation of the course were these: (1) development of guidelines, (2) translation of the program, (3) exploration of potential sites for use of the course, and (4) preparation for computer input. While the course was coded for input into the IBM 1500 system, the text could be taken directly and coded for presentation on other equipment. The course has been recommended for use in Chile; this awaits further action. No other decision has been reached as to its future use. References are provided. The appendices contain: an outline of the content of "Elmath" by chapter, an evaluation of "Elmath" by Chilean educators, and a sample chapter of the Spanish translation of the course. (MF)
