A Study of Computer Use and Literacy in Science Education. Final Report, 1978 - 1980.
Klassen, Daniel L.; And Others
This research project was designed to provide information which will be of assistance to science educators responsible for and interested in the development, implementation and evaluation of educational programs and courses designed to foster computer literacy. A questionnaire concerning computer use in the classroom was answered by 3,576 science teachers. The data from the questionnaire demonstrate that teachers strongly support minimal understanding of computers and their societal role for every secondary school student and that they generally feel positive about the value of computers in education. Responses of the 929 students who had been exposed to instructional computing activities demonstrated significant gains in both affective and cognitive dimensions of computer literacy. (Author/DS)
