Hardware Developments; Microcomputers and Processors; Grade School/High School Instructional; and Computer-Aided Design. Papers Presented at the Association for Educational Data Systems Annual Convention (Phoenix, Arizona, May 3-7, 1976).
Association for Educational Data Systems, Washington, DC.
Compiled are ten papers describing computer hardware and computer use in elementary and secondary school instruction presented at the Association for Educational Data Systems (AEDS) 1976 convention. An oral/aural terminal is described followed by two papers about the use of minicomputers and microprocessors. Seven papers discuss various uses of the computer in elementary and high school instruction: a computer can be used to plot and display conic sections and environmental designs, to help teach reading skills, and to generate tests or homework exercises. One paper recommends the use of games in computerized drills, and another explains computerized demonstration of some mathematics principles. The importance of the school computer coordinator is outlined by the Minnesota Educational Computing Consortium. (CH)
