Implications of Computer Technology for Industrial Education.
Novosad, John P.
Industrial education, because of expanding technology, must acknowledge the changing realities of the world in which it functions and for which it prepares individuals to participate. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine selected public schools, at the elementary, secondary, and higher educational levels, for the purpose of identifying existing practices utilizing computer technology and/or related peripheral equipment. The study concentrated on the four areas of instruction, administration, research, and teaching about the computer and its use. As a result of the study a manuscript describing identified practices is being prepared to serve as a guide for the implementation of computer systems and/or related peripheral equipment in the field of industrial education. This study was completed by achieving the following objectives: (1) Practices with potential for the study were identified as a result of reviewing relevant literature and correspondence with selected individuals and institutions, (2) Selected schools and colleges were surveyed for the purpose of obtaining valid information on practices identified as having potential for the study, and (3) Practices and the hardware and software systems employed were reviewed in detail for the study. Conclusions and recommendations for each of the four areas are enumerated. (Author/JS)
