Significant Developments in the Use of Computers in School Mathematics: A Sourcebook for Administrators, Teachers, and Teacher Educators.
Moran, Thomas Patrick
This study provides a critical review of developments in the use of computer extended instruction (CEI), and practical guidelines for implementing a computer system in a school. The study examined special projects, proposals, recommendations, and position papers. Literature reviewed was synthesized under three broad headings: (1) computer hardware and software, (2) teacher training, and (3) student-related considerations. Under hardware and software the advantages and disadvantages of various computer systems are discussed. Time-sharing, minicomputers, and programmable calculators are described and their usefulness in meeting educational needs discussed. Teacher training was found to be the major obstacle to fuller implementation of CEI. Existing inservice programs were found to be stop-gap measures as a rule, and concentration on preservice teacher education was recommended. The research related to student achievement and other student related outcomes of CEI were found to be highly positive, but the research base was considered modest; further research was suggested.
