A Survey of Computing Activities in Secondary Schools. Final Report.
Korotkin, Arthur L.; And Others
Results of a survey of secondary schools indicate that the use of computers, especially for instructional purposes, has grown rapidly. However, the diversity of use is still limited. The most prevalent applications are problem solving and Electronic Data Processing (EDP) skills training. The major emphasis of computer application is on teaching students to use a computer as a tool in learning. Most instructional applications occur in the mathematics courses. Local sources provide the majority of funds for instructional computer use. Plans for future use generally call for expansion of present applications. The survey was conducted by mail and by interview. Appendices include survey instruments, a list of schools called and visited, and sources of data for basic questions. (Author/MF)
