Educational R&D Report, v3 n2 Spr 1980
The purpose of this journal, addressed specifically to educators, is to describe, introduce, or translate results of research and development work funded by the National Institute of Education. The first article examines two secondary schools that are undertaking comprehensive efforts to improve their practices with help from the Wisconsin Research and Development Center for Individualized Schooling. Major emphasis is being placed on Individually Guided Education, with the local school staff engaging in ongoing educational improvement. Curriculum, instruction, and school organization are arranged to facilitate the continuous progress of each student. In the second article new developments in the use of computers in the classroom are discussed. Ways in which a computer can be of service in various school functions are described, and the problems as well as benefits involved in developing computer assisted instruction are explored. In the last article, a researcher discusses teacher education. Particular consideration is given to the problems of the beginning teacher and the first year experience. It is recommended that active participation of more experienced teachers in assisting beginners be formalized as regular practice. (JD)
