Introducing the Computer to Teacher Education: An Integration of Human and Hardware Technology.
Muston, Ray; Wagstaff, Rita
As one component of a university-wide program to improve instructional effectiveness by introducing interactive computing into the curriculum, the College of Education at the University of Iowa received eight computer terminals. The goals of the project were to develop faculty capacity to integrate instructional media into their teaching and to maximize the educational impact of this technology on teacher education students. After initial problems were overcome, the faculty designed numerous computer programs for drill and practice, tutorial, simulation, and computer assisted instruction applications. On-going in-service training was conducted to keep the faculty aware of the latest trends in computer technology, and plans were laid to extend computer use in the future. (EMH)
