We CARE About In-Service Education.
Dupuis, Mary M.
Presented in this paper is a description of the Computer Assisted Renewal Education (CARE) program, which uses computer-assisted instruction to reach teachers for inservice education. The CARE program utilizes a mobile van to transport the computer and equipment from one location to another. The system includes a television tube, a set of earphones for audio tape, an image projector, a keyboard typewriter, and a light-sensitive pen for each student station. A handbook, text, testing materials, and other teaching aids accompany most of the courses. Attitudes of teachers toward CARE have been positive, and academic levels are high, as shown by data from 13 rural areas in Pennsylvania. At present, reading instruction for teachers is part of a larger course in diagnostic teaching of preschool and primary children. The diagnostic teaching model focuses on a child's individual needs in reading readiness, word attack skills, comprehension, and study skills. Future courses will deal with reading instruction more thoroughly. (Author/WR)
