REACT: Relevant Educational Applications of Computer Technology. CUES: Computer Utility for Educational Systems.
Otte, Richard
The testing and revision phase of REACT (Relevant Educational Applications of Computer Technology) and CUES (Computer Utility for Educational Systems) is summarized. REACT is a training course for teachers and administrators designed to familiarize them with the use of computers for instructional and administrative purposes. REACT course materials are designed for hands-on interaction between teachers and administrators and the computer; training is accomplished by a combination of instructional manuals and interaction with a computer. By the end of the contact year every training manual was revised, based on data from in-house tests, consultant reviews, and results from various test sites. Tests showed that the manuals were effective in either self-instruction or group presentation modes. It was found that the greatest need for assistance with the training program always arose during the set-up phase and, after that, any problems that arose could be handled by telephone. This report contains sample units, a sales brochure from the publisher, and a bibliography of books and articles relating to computers and their uses. (JY)
