Computers in the Classroom.
Lewellen, Lee, Ed.
Experimental work indicates that students learn more in less time when a computer is properly utilized in the educational process. Surveys of computer use in education and in administration in public secondary schools show that, although the number of schools using computers for instructional purposes is still small, the degree of computer use in these schools is quite high. Problem solving and electronic data processing skills are the principal classroom instructional uses; mathematics is most often the subject area taught with the assistance of a computer. Computers have shown a great ability to motivate students. They are more frequently used as an aid in instruction than as the object of instruction. Most financial support for computer programs in schools comes from the local level and is expected to continue to do so in the future. Schools that use computers for instructional purposes tend to be larger and to send more of their students on to college. Surprisingly, many schools which use computers in instructional settings have not used them previously in administration. (JY)
